(OT) Opinion on Lions trade deal - Wood for 14th pick for Johnstone
A young ruckman who can barely get a look in for a senior game in the past three seasons and is traded for a first round pick is awesome not matter what the individuals potential is, potential is exactly that just potential nothing else. Example: Marty Clarke the Irishman who picked up an afl football for the first time in his life October last year has played more games this year than what Cameron Wood has since being drafted in 2004.In regards to Travis Johnstone he is a classy midfielder who will fit in nicely for Brisbane. You already have a decent stable of midfielders who can support Travis who will in turn create same amazing drive for you, which you currently need especially through the center. At Melbourne Travis was the main focus and was shut out of the game without any support from other demon players, when Travis broke free Melbourne would win. Seriously watch & enjoy Travis burn the grass through the corridor and wings, I’d say win for Brisbane.
It is better to trust the eyes rather than the ears.
