No shame in that seeing you're looking at depth and options that could've possibly played this week and I made the call to cull depth guys and fast-track the rebuild that I wasn't in the position to do during the draft (should've picked up 1 extra kid though) - I knew Dunn was playing, Close I'm slightly surprised about but knew he'd make their 25 again - for guys that could serve my interests better after mid-season when Vince & Hurn depart.
Close could burn me as could preferencing White over someone else, and Dunn could've been sent to a finalist for a mid-to-low pick.
It is certainly the riskiest move I have made at FA in quite some time, as it shows my hand on guys that I may not be in a position to keep, and realistically I have my doubts whether I can carry 5 guys on top of the other 3-4 around the periphery. Whilst the strategy remains tenable I'll be sticking with it, but a lot will depend on forward injuries and Balic, Duggan, Kerridge, Stewart, Sinclair and Menadue.
Still looking for a delistee from @You_Shall_Be_Smoten as Myers has to come off LTI.
