    Surely youíre at home bored on a Friday night on a wind up?

    You really saying we have a record of letting players go who dominate at other clubs?

    Mitchell is going gangbusters but that topic is well covered here. Nankervis? He did well but itís really injuries that have us missing him. Membrey? Get off the grass. Biggs? Really?

    The reality is we rarely we rarely let players go who hurt us.

    Still it's time to move on I suppose.
    We didnít pay him what he was worth because we couldnít do so without risking losing Heeney or Mills. Quite simple and I just canít understand why people here canít work that out

    Aymen to that.

    Late 1977 after we lost the elimination final to the Tigers we traded a player with 19 games experience and his sight unseen brother to Essendon in exchange for centreman Neville Fields.

    Not only did our 19 game player proceed to play almost 300 games for his new club, captain it, represent his state and country etc etc, the unseen brother was considered a better player until his career was ravaged by injuries.

    But after this deal, and just a few seasons with us, Neville Fields eventually returned to the Bombers. And to rub salt into the wound, a third brother and important defender in our back 6 left us to join his brothers (subsequently winning State and All Australian honours) and which ultimately enticed a recruitment of a fourth brother by the Bombers.

    Hindsight is 20:20. What if we never traded out Terry Daniher ...

    Itís as pointless to speculate on that as to lament Tom Mitchellís departure. Like father. Like son.

    They don't want to be logical. They are alert to any opportunity to find fault. Good luck to Murray because he will get more of an opportunity at the Pies. Swans will be happy for him and his development. Same with Nankervis and probably Mitchell. Heeney and Mills tracking nicely to be long term guns. Did the best we could within financial reality.

    It's a great advertisement for our development of players with Mitchell, Nanka and Murray doing well. It will only help to increase the price for players other clubs want from our list. We should get a 1st rounder for Jordan Foote.

    At least one Iíd say!!

    The fact we got what looks like being about 600 points for a guy that would have struggled to get a game for us this year is a great complyto our development program but also points to how desperate the Pies list management strategy is, not that we really need any more evidence.

    Any gnashing if teeth on here re that deal is beyond ridiculous

    I'd trade Mitch for Mills in a heartbeat.
