Surely look to give them as much opportunity as possible next year. All well and good to make them ‘earn’ it but i’d say Langford has done his time in the VFL and if he is going to make it as a midfielder, 2018 is it. Otherwise i’d say as both are out of contract at the years end, they would go look for opportunity elsewhere.
Myers and Bird are contracted until end of 2019 (according to Footywire) so while Miles is a better prospect than both of them as a depth player (slim hope that Myers pulls the finger out), don’t think we can fit another bloke that is not that far away from them in terms of potential upside.
Much rather we back in the youth to come through - Parish, Begley, Mutch, Lang, Lav,
