Why by having an opinion that we should temper our expectations of a guy picked with our last rookie pick and that a Tassie lad would most likely join a Tassie team when brought in?

How silly of me.

I unreservedly apologise for saying something so ridiculous.
It was a bit of a reach>

It all peaked after 1985’s Ewoks: The Battle for Endor, no need to watch any SW content made after this date.
Bulltish.

Empire strikes back was the pinnacle.

Then we had the f***** ewoks, only to be lead to the biggest shite of all time, jar jar binks. At this point it had jumped the shark

Because he's from Tasmania and he really really really really loves Tasmania and they *might* have an AFL team at some unknown time in the future and he will definitely want to play for them if they do have a team during his career and we will get absolutely nothing for him in return.

I think that sums it up.

Can’t live your life worrying about what might happen.
A few on here crapped themselves for years thinking Shuey Gaff Huron etc we’re going home but it didn’t happen.
If and I say if Tassy gets a team O’Neals kids are more of a chance to be playing than Mitch himself
Be happy that we got a good player for cheap

Does it really matter if he wants to hypothetically go back to some mythical Tasmanian team 5 years down the track? And if he somehow turns out to be decent and not another Burrows and if Tasmania somehow do get a team we'd likely get a fair bit more in compensation back than pick 25 in the rookie draft anyway. Fair chance they would overpay to get any half decent Tasmanian players back over there, we might even get a high enough pick to take a decent midfielder in the draft.
We should be more worried at loosing our Beagles marquee player in Brady Grey if he chooses to return to Tassy.
It would smash the Beagles and their chances over the next few seasons.
Freo need to keep a careful eve on Alex Pearce as well.

Rogue One was my favourite Disney Star Wars movie.

Vader's appearance at the end? So good.
It's also the only one with a decently paced story.

If you took out everything on the casino planet and replaced it with a single scene, The Last Jedi would have been much better. If O'Neill hadn't been from Tasmania, we probably wouldn't have got him.

Ok so don't come at me.

I just watched some highlights of the your Mitch O'Neill and my first thought was that he has a bit of Benny Cousins about him.
His swervability through traffic and hand passes where quiet the sight to behold.

Anyone else see some traits of Ben? I think we could have a snagged a bloody ripper here.
Yeah he hold the glass pipe in a similar fashion.

People need to temper expectations gaiz.

The Last Jedi was a diabolical mess and I don't think The Rise of Skywalker can save the franchise.

We won't get any decent compensation.
New Clone Wars and Riding with Baby Yoda is just compensation.

Looks like you might have been wrong about Huron ..........can't find him on the current player list. Must have gone back home.

People need to expect temperature variations with Tasmania
As Mitchell O'Neill has left the Apple Isle it may also effect the weight of the Australasian continent causing the WA coastline to sink under the weight of expectation of our 2nd rookie pick.
If he doesn't work out, his muscles won't get any bigger and it might stop Scarborough from disappearing into the sea. He might then return home free.

We have sent them some more of our GST entitlements to even things up.
