    The fact they excluded their long term and respected club doctor from the supplements process should have been the biggest red flag imaginable.

    Intercept marking was something we weren't great at in 2021 and he's been brought in specifically to address this. If he slots in well that helps us.

    Even that's marginal now that the AFL changed the rules and 'mature aged' players can be given 1 year deals.
    Just scrap it, make 4th round+ pick draftee deals one year, and be done with it.

    He's not a ruckman at AFL level - and our cupboard was so bare we had to try and make him one.
