#45 Conor McKenna - ELITE

Smack was given 1 year when elevated too

DON’T YOU DARE


#1183

Really happy with the elevation and it’s well deserved. Would have liked him to be given 2 years as I think he may need it given his experience.

I think with Tippa, it gives us real run and pace off the hbf. We can also have Dea there and Baguley there for stability.

Number upgrade surely? He can take Parish's #3 next season when he asks for a trade.

I’m guessing he’ll be offered 14, 15, 16, 17 or 19. On the other hand he wore number 11 for Tyrone Minors so maybe we could elevate Zacka to #1 and give Conor his old number back?

you can’t take a senior players number off him, doesn’t matter what number you give him if you take his number and give it to some 3rd year player that would be really poor form. Would you take Lloyd’s 18 off him to give him #1 or Fletcher’s #31?

■■■■ says Hi. Not that I begrudge that 3rd year player Fanta the number 13.


#1186

While I’m happy for the kid doesn’t this mean we have 1 less draft pick or list spot?

I would of preferred if he stayed on the Category B rookie while giving us more flexibility with our drafting and DFA choice’s.

Correct me if I’m wrong

With the new indigenous and non-traditional rookies this year we may have 3 B-list rookies by the end of the draft. Plus this is reward for effort, which is a good signal to give young players.

Cooney had only been with us for one season and wanted to change to the number he wore at the Bulldogs when it became available, so not really the same.

Stupid idea! We can now play him whenever we want…no restrictions unlike other rookies.

I thought there isn’t any restrictions on him anyway? didn’t realize the same rules applied. Still I find it weird he only got the 1 year figured if you are gonna promote him then at least 2 years is what he deserves on form and improvement.

Reason why I figured it was a waste was because I thought we could play him whenever. I had no idea he can only play because of Long term injuries or getting promoted half way through season( as per normal rookies)

So you’re telling me we can have a triple benfti special?

Very possible…

I don’t think we nominated any Tiwi players for the category B rookies. Pretty sure they were all multicultural Melbourne players.

But… dammit!

We nominated one indigenous guy, Aaron Tachell, but he is from Victoria


#1196

Not that I’m too fussed, but the kid looks like a #15 to me.

If you insist.

I understand he hasn’t returned from Ireland yet. How come he get’s away with a late commencement of training when everone else has to be back? For god’s sake he is not elite.


#1199

Cause his family lives in Ireland?

I believe there is a valid reason. In any case even if there was not, who is to say that he has "gotten away with it " at this point in time?
