Not really adding more to this conversation than adding weight, but I think Butler has lost his passion. At the end of 2016, the rumour was he was moving back to Ballarat as he'd been told he was being delisted, then had a last minute reprieve and was kept on the list for 12 months.
Maybe we'll get Ballarat Swan's 3rd rounder in a trade?

I reckon he'd kill it at the Dees. They are desperate for leg speed.

Could do well at the Blues. He'd be a typical Blues player from their successful era. Coiffed hair, bludge a bit, and then clinical when they need to be.

Mind you he is still on our list and I will back him in till he is not.

At the end of 2016, the rumour was he was moving back to Ballarat as he'd been told he was being delisted, then had a last minute reprieve and was kept on the list for 12 months. Then he turned it around and became a rock solid 22 player.

Come 2018, after such a surprising turnaround in 2017, he started to regress. This year he has gone backwards even further, to that player we had in 2016. Maybe he needs a rocket, and a trade to someone else will revive his career. In our club though, I think we have enough of his type to set him on his way and start the migration process to another draftee.
I think the injury took a lot out of him and he has struggled to regain his confidence.

That's what it looks like. When he tries to run with the ball he looks as though he's expecting to get caught. Needs to learn some new tricks for when he's unable to get goal side.

Will never forget the blazing goal against Port which kept us in the game in 2017. Epitomised his year.

If Butler moves I'd back our backline to make him totally ineffective when playing us. He doesn't have a lot of tricks.

They're saying pick 39. Meh... Last years draft that would have been great. Not so sure about this years but whatever. He was out the door anyway.

Given the state of the list and likely delistings, he is probably one of them and I suspect has the club's blessing.

Chris Yarran still leaves a nasty taste in my mouth. Apart from a tatoo on his arse Butler is a clean skin compared to Yarran. I'm ok with Dan going there, but we must play hardball with the cheats.

Grigg for Andy Collins offsets Yarran.

Not for me it doesn't, Carlton knew about Yarran's issues and tried to milk a 1 round pick out of us.
True. Since then they've been struggling to not win the Wooden Spoon and we're Premiers.
