K Langdon and P Hasleby were discussing GC last night. They were struggling to work out how they managed to screw it up so badly. They had 1st dibs on the best young players for 1x draft + ongoing concessions in subsequent drafts but try to name a player, apart from S May who has developed into the player we all thought they would become? Jack Martin was supposed to be the best player for 5x drafts but several years down the track, would struggle to make the starting 22 of most other sides. Matera hasn’t come on. 2m Peter Wright is ok but really should be better. Caddy, Prestia + O’Meara are all elsewhere. They’ve got bugger all of any real value to trade out for picks and/or players. Most of the senior players they drafted have either, with the exception of G Abblett, stagnated or left. Now they’ve lost their 2nd coach. The Bears had an excuse for their early struggles on formation but GC can’t claim the same. They’ve benefited from the most extraordinary leg-up and have failed miserably. It’s actually hard to believe how they’ve done it.
