I see a parallel between Hird in the late 90s when he was injury ravaged.and Fyfe right now.
At the time, I wouldn't have traded Hird for anything. A Brownlow Medalist who could turn a game at will doesn't come along often. I know we've had Simon Madden, Terry Daniher, Jobe Watson, Time Watson, Lloyd, Lucas and Fletcher since the mid 80s but Hird was on another level to those guys when you sit back and think of what he was able to achieve. And if Hird ever wanted to leave, I'd want multiple draft picks and a reliable player. He was seriously that valuable.
That's what it'll take to get Fyfe.
And considering that Hird (in my opinion) was better from 1999 onwards than he was before that period I think we could get a great deal out of Fyfe without him necessarily winning anything of significance.
I doubt we'd have the balls to seriously get him though. After all, it is a massive investment on someone who has struggled to get on the field consistently since late in his Brownlow year.
