I can't believe those complaining. This is a brilliant move by EFC.
By placing delisting McKernan it allows three things:
1) Frees up a permanent spot on the list to recruit a DFA or kid in the ND
2) Gives us ruck cover if we don't find a ruck in the ND
3) Stick a rocket up McKernan to work on the "things" he's been asked to work on until the rookie draft
If we somehow got English at our rd 2 pick and still had picks 29, 41 and possibly another in the ND, then we wouldn't bother with McKernan at all. If we don't get a ruck in the ND, then we will need McKernan as cover which a rookie pick (our very last selection) would make it worthwhile.
Was anyone shattered we took Gach Nyoun in the rookie draft or did they complain about missing out on anyone?
And I am shattered we took Gach in the rookie draft because it seems apparent we don't have the capacity to develop a raw ruckman still learning the game, so I don't know why we bothered trying to.
I'm shattered if someone in my family dies, no where near shattered if my club picks a player that doesn't work out.
Get some perspective in your life
Get some perspective yourself, and leave some room for artistic licence.
Just reflecting Fog's term used in his post which was basically asking if anyone was disappointed in taking Gach in the rookie draft.
I did invest in Gach's journey and what it meant to him, his family and his community, having talked to him and read up on him.
Without any major evidence besides the Uber incident regarding his not following expected discipline, my take is we didn't have the right support and opportunities available to make it reasonably possible for him to succeed. This is going by what Ego said at the end of the year, and the reality of having up to 3 rucks ahead of him in the VFL side.
If you can't indulge in a little hyperbole on Blitz I would think most of us shouldn't be here.
