i think we would have.
Game time is my guess. Though with Myers turning 30, and not a lot of depth at essendon, i felt he'd have had a year or two to ease back from injury, and could have played when ready. Be it Rd1 2019, or a little later.

it is the ever so slightly bitter aftertaste of an otherwise sweet couple of years of trading where Shiel, Smith, Stringer and Saad came in.
I'd have been happy to offer our 2018 and 2019 1sts for Shiel and Setter with nothing in return.
I believe Poaching Health and Fitness guru from The Hawks (Andrew Russell) helped away Setterfield's decision. The kid has been very unlucky with injuries since being drafted, and just wants to play footy.

He might be the WHE for Carlton.

A high draft pick that has not lived up to Expectations and not had the best Injury Run.

Get Him Fit and he might get something close to what he showed why he was Rated to be Worth Pick 6
Not live up to expectations? Are you serious? He was without doubt- alongside Josh Kelly the best junior we have ever had come into the club, who did a good apprenticeship in the NEAFL (which we give all of our draftee's, we very rarely give them more than five games in their first year)- and then did his knee in the pre-season of his second year.

Absolutely ridiculous analogy. The only resemblance between the two is their christian name's. Honestly, get a grip mate.

Both were injury related though.

Our fans certainly rated WHE on his 2014 and early 2015 form before chronic shoulder problems. Delighted he's over them.

Setterfield to date has had worse luck, but he's young and I expect he can turn it around.

Who would he have been competing with at Essendon for an inside midfield role?

He’s got more competition at Carlton with Cripps, Dow and Kennedy at Carlton as young inside mids.
not much in terms of competition. My thoughts are he is coming from 2 years off injured. We would have given him time to find touch.
Had he been ready to go Rd1, he's straight in ahead of Laverde or Guelfi in the side. Game conditioning would be the only qualifier.

Setter doesnt strike me as the fig jam/look at me type.
you guys certainly lost out on this one.

When we had pick 1 in this draft, i was keen on either of McGrath, Taranto or Setterfield
Honestly thought we'd land Setter if/when he decided to leave.
I'd have happily forgone the return pick and added a little extra to the Shiel deal if Setter had been on the table.
He has admitted he was slow to get into his rehab, spent a long time in Albury before getting back to Sydney.

Do you have a reference for this?

I'm curious. I did see him put in an untended cameo on Sam Reid's Monday video sitting in front if an XBOX with a large empty chocolate wrapper.i swear it's been edited and kt's not in the video in the website anymore.

The club said nothing, but I'm fine with them protecting the privacy if a young guy who may have been struggling with his second consecutive stint in rehab after his concussion.

He also dropped 6kgs in his ore-season with the Blues indicating he may not have arrived in the best shape.

At the end if the day if it took a change of clubs to re-invigorate him I'm fine with him going. Just hope he now becomes the player he was meant to be.

there are no other teams worthy
We originally called his name out at the draft in 2016. You cheeky buggers matched the bid with the cheap matching points price the system had in place. Still do not think they fixed it. First 4 to 6 picks should be worth much more on Draft Value Index than they been showing since the systems inception. It should be harder for other clubs to match bids that early in the draft than it has been.

Nope. I don't thinks a big deal, plenty of players do the same. I never wrote anything about him being a figjam and agree that we isn't, not sure why that was replied, just said his rehab was slow.

That's a really wierd response. I made no judgement, simply asked for information. If you dint think that's ok, that really is troubling.
