#20 Jackson “Jerrett” Merrett


#1602

I reckon you have no idea what you’re talking about and that he is as good as gone.


#1603

I have no idea why they offered him 2 year last contract.


#1604

His name’s Zach


#1605

Definitely on thin ice I’d say.
I reckon it will come down to how hard we cut this time.


#1606

He’s the most obvious delisting right now. No chance he’s around next year


#1607

I reckon Bird, Hocking, Howlett and Stanton are all more obvious. But barring a miracle I’d be delisting Jerrett as well.
If they want to keep someone for depth, I’d rather him than any of the other 4.


#1608

If Zerrett came to the club and said “give him 3 years or I leave next contract” then I’d sign Jerrett up for 5 years.


#1609

Reckon there’s more than a few blokes in front of him. Definitely not in the best 22 at the moment, but has age a bit of versatility on his side.


#1610

Barely managed a game last year for probably the worst Essendon side for 80 years, and can’t get a game this season.

Pretty sure that he doesn’t have much to offer.


#1611

Life is full of choices.


#1612

Often players just aren’t good enough. He’s fits that category.


#1613

Stantong and Hocking have played this year and Howlett has a spot in the 22 atm.

You’d say if Craig Bird gets offered $100 a game to play the rest of the season at Aberfeldie and wanted to do it the club would probably happily release him right now, such is his prominence in Woosha’s plans evidently.


#1614

AFL site saying suspected broken leg. Anyone heard anything?


Changes for the Blues
#1615

Really?

Would be a very harsh way to go out.


#1616

Thanks for your service Jerrett.


#1617

That’s ■■■■■■. I mean not so much from a senior term perspective but from a VFL and depth sense that’s terrible news.

Well, I guess we’re done here then. Disappointing way for him to bow out.


#1620

:anguished:


#1621

why does he have to bow out. What is he 23. Surely got some good footy left in him.
If Watson, Kelly, Stanton, Hocking, Howlett, Morgan go, that’s 5 changes to the list. Does he need to go?
Does Bird stay on the list?
If he has trade value, and we get something decent then sure, but don’t think we need to dump a guy who is still young and can improve
