[quote=“jonovdp, post:4872, topic:2931, full:true”] You just need to go back and have a look at the people that were celebrating when Francis’ manager announced that he wanted a trade, many people in this forum were celebrating because they wanted him gone.
So because people were happy he’d be up for a trade they wanted him to fail? Ridiculous.
As much as we’d like him to reach his obvious potential, there are many who think that he wont. If we wait too long to find that out, he’ll be worth nothing. May have done so already. If we can trade him before its too late, we may get something for him.
Obviously since he’s contracted, he needs to agree to move. I was hoping we might get something for him that the bulldogs would accept for Stringer instead of pick 11.
I’d prefer some of the options that should be available at that pick than Francis at this point. But would be very happy to be proven wrong, if he stays. Which I hope he does if we’re going to get nothing for him already anyway.
Some people need to accept he just might not make it. It’s not like just waiting for the right set of tires to arrive and he’ll be good.
