Absolutely crazy. No offence to Conor but him being elevated at the same time Will Hams is delisted is an insult to Will. "Not happy Jan." :s
Yeah... well we were all fans of Will. But Will had 4 seasons, and a once in forever opportunity to cement a spot in the side this year, and couldn't do it. He had 8 straight games mid season, and was then dropped for the last few games. His career had him drafted, then dropped from the senior list to the rookie list, and now delisted.
Conor has had 2 seasons of football... ever... at any level, and has already played one more senior game than Will managed. He had a couple of patches of 2 games early on in the season, and then got an extended run of 8 games holding his spot in the side through to the end of the season. He has an elite skillset, albeit with some deficiencies born of not having grown up with the game.
I don't think anyone should be surprised at the decision making, and it is certainly not absolutely crazy. Will might forever be the better footballer, but Conor surely has a higher potential ceiling. Whether he gets there or not, well here is hoping he does.
