Sorry to go against the grain, but I thought he did a wonderful job of portraying the role of a classic St Kilda superstar. He bobbed up for a quarter, went missing, and even got the commentators to call him a tip rat... what more could you ask of him?!

Laughable during preseason that everyone (media included) thought he brought pace to the Saints. I tried telling some of my St. Kilda supporting mates that he wasn’t quick but they weren’t having a bar of it. Why do people think he’s fast when he’s clearly not?

Fast moving little legs with short steps, slow over the ground.

He was better than butler but that didn’t say much, he did ok without setting the world on fire
Butler at his best offered more than Higgins but as we came to learn Butler was invisible when the heat was on. One of his last games was against Port at AO. He was so scared it was laughable, Dimma lost all faith in him after that and he was done as a RFC player. Saints fans are now discovering what we all knew. He is a total CAT

Butler being one of their poster boys is a reflection of where they are at , its them to a tee

looks excellent when its going his way ,goes missing when the going gets tough .... a bit like the saints

Butler is a good footballer & forever a Richmond Premiership player. Still popular with our group too. Not his fault that he was moved on.

Dunno if moved on is the correct term. ... IIRC he, like Higgins asked to be traded. Heard Balmey say we helped him get where he wanted to go.
