Opulentus Tigris said:This thread highlights the naivety of a lot of posters. Not sure what Richo and Blair can do about players nominating other clubs, other than look to elsewhere. GWS have a ridiculous amount of under utilised talent playing in the NEAFL. Our list is in pretty good shape. A big name alone isn't going to elevate us to a granny automatically. We've got to be pragmatic and strategic. Which, thank goodness we look like we are.
I think it has been a bungled approach by the club. Firstly they mention a 'war chest' and the pursuit of a big fish. Then on the eve of the trade period we are admitting defeat in an interview and saying we are unlikley to land the big fish.
I dont mind grabbing a guy like Townsend and trust Choco and Miles input about him. I also think Yarran is exactly what we need. A good kid at 12 and it isnt overly terrible but it is a little underwhelming.
We are not that far away. Hopefully it is enough to tip the scales our way in 2016.
