In some respects you look at this and think adding another 190 cm half forward that might impact the midfield to our list of 190 cm half forwards that might impact the midfield, doesn’t make a whole heap of sense. But, the guy is insanely talented, top 10 in the league type talent, 23 years old, AA and had a very reasonable offfield excuse not to have performed that well this year. Obviously you would hope he could impact in the midfield but even if he was an 80/20 forward/mid he makes us significantly better. It also makes us significantly more attractive to other players, coaches etc… the hardest part to getting a gun player to your club is them wanting to come and if Jake Stringer wants to come to Essendon well, we need to do what we can to make that work and if that requires further shuffling of other 190cm half forwards, then so bit.
BRING HIM IN.
