even if he was available to be selected would have to be in good form to stay in the best 22
This is true.

Jezza's their no.1, I daresay Lobb's almost got himself in as no.2 in the pecking order because he can play as the back-up ruck and Patton's no.3 because they invested so much into him through his knee injuries and obviously being the no.1 draft pick.

Plus then there's Tomlinson/Stewart as well.

It's their own fault! If the Giants had recruited better in the first place instead of hoarding draft picks, they would have a better culture and the young guys might have wanted to stick around!

Told you all that would happen!

Oh yeah, so when players leave the crows they're mummas boys, sooks and wimps, but any other club it's a culture issue.

Step off you hypocritical flog.


Got to love how this guy always misses what I actually meant, a few of you though tbh ;)

Adelaide recruited a team of mature footballers and all but missed the GF after just three years ........  yeah, totally the same ::)

Adelaide made the top 8 once in their first 6 years.

GWS tried to recruit star players when they started, but nobody wanted to come to sydney. They didn't want just rejects like the crows current team, so they decided to load up on talent so when they invariably lose players due to the go home factor, they still retained young talent. When they had the opportunity to get established and good players (Mumford, Shaw, Griffen, Stevie J) they went for it.

Their strategy was sound, and that's why they're currently sitting top 4.

haha

because the rest of freo has had to stay in good form?

:P

Look, if he does have genuine mental health problems, I feel bad for him. If he doesn't, he's a little dog and a flower wit. But I don't know which one's right so I'm not going to judge him and I'll give him benefit of the doubt. Best of luck to him.

i was talking about him getting games for GWS this year
