Here are some facts in the argument as opposed to opinion.
GWS currently have 15 players on their list with 100+ games experience
Adelaide have 12.
Let’s look at other emerging teams like demons who have 10 and will all stay in their list next year. Saints have 13 now and I expect they will be at 9-10 next year.
If list mgmt goes how I expect it to go next year we will have 7. There is a massive experience gap. Say all you want and you can argue he is not the right guy. But saying we shouldn’t bring in ‘some’ experienced players who can deliver high quality AFL football when fit and firing is dare I say it wrong. And our list mgmt decision come end of year will show that. Because if we don’t pick those types up Howlett will get another year to fill this gap and Blitz will want to burn Tullamarine down.
Its the reality of our current squad situation.
