This will be one of the worst pickups in the history of the saints if we decide to trade for this guy..
Poor attitude
Crap field kick
Selfish
38% on front of goal
Not a great mark
No work rate
Undersized
One trick pony

The mere thought that we are after this clown is sickening to me.. he fact we would have to trade something for him is just outrageous... I couldn't watch a guy like this in saints colours, would do me from attending games until the inevitable that he is dropped mid year...

Bevo is an amazing coach and he can't stand the sight of this guy..he was coutnlessly dropped when they had no forqard should be enough to suggest he is rubbish

Anyone who thinks he would improve us has no idea what kind of attitude he has, his negative and brainlessness will only corrupt the younger players.

Saints better not go near this guy or we will inevitably imo ruin our next 5 years

Being sacked from your club would certainly be a wake up call to improve your ethics. You would think. Therefore worth a punt.

A caller to SEN seemed to be inferring some issues way beyond his relationship breakdown. And a very cagey SEN morning crew were reluctant to engage with it...even though they all seemed to know something about it.
We need to be smart....it has a wiff of Andrew Lovett about it.
We were the only club that didn't know about his issues before we coughed up our first round pick that year.
Due diligence!

Swap McCartin for Stringer.
One of them has a premiership medallion, has issues that might be fixable, physically able to get 50+ goals in a season.

McCartin for Stringer? One is talented, inconsistent, injury prone and after generating huge expectations has been a disappointment. The other one is Jake Stringer.

Lonie for Stringer - straight nil-all-draw swap.

One trick pony for Lonie :?

No, you have misunderstood what I have written. What I have written is that it is the Club's long avowed strategy to land a Big Fish now.

Their plan not mine.


What I have said is that Bains has this draft/trade period to deliver on that declared plan, and if not then the plan that Bains was entrusted to have delivered will not have been realised.

Over several seasons I have actually been very skeptical, and have written such, of the plan's reliance to land a BigFish, and in particular a BigFish FA as it boiled done into having heaps $$$ and in being seen as a Destination Club. Players rarely swap for $$$$ alone unless the offer is ridiculous (think Gablett) and as for being a Destination Club, well that will not be until we are actually already a very good team, and so will not be a carrot while we are building.

North's mega-$$$$ offers have just reinforced the fallacy on relying on $$$ as the main bait, and as for us being a Destination Club as bait. That is a pipe dream.

Players if gained from other clubs by us will the disaffected, the out of favours, or the flawed or those not getting a go or those hearing the come home call strongly. The rough diamonds rather than the diamonds.

Just imagine we miss out on getting Kelly and pick up this bum instead. Not a good outcome.



All-Australian, Premiership bum!!!!!


That All-Australian accolade went straight to his and he went downhill skiing after it (possibly nose first). Either way he has drowned in his own bathwater. We don't need these types. Carlisle was enough of a risk, which has seemingly seemed to pan out. I just get the impression we'd get absolutely fleeced by Footscray for a basket-case. No good!



Agree with this. Dogs aren't going to relerase a bloke of this caliber unless there's some serious issues.


Absolutely! This has the word "AVOID" written all over it.

The writing I'm seeing reads "CERVI".

Ah, okay. You'll be happy with the way it's gone then with us unable to land one.

Problem is that our list management team have a better record of late of assessing players from other clubs, than of kids in the draft.

Overall the club has done a reasonable job of rebuilding the list and team. Problem is though that they have not been turning up enough elite/very good players and that to make the next step we need some absolute quality. Just getting more average to good players will achieve little as it will just squeeze out another average to good player.

So they need to NAIL our first two picks.

Nicky Dal was saying that he had to endure a ton of off-field issues.

OK there was a woman dating two guys but what else? Anyone know or able to surmise?

C'mon everybody thinks they know what's going on, so what was it that Stringer did that made the Bulldogs kick him out? He may be a selfish tosser but he is an All Australian and has a ton of ability. Put it this way we would all accept a straight swap between Lonie and Stringer.

Ive only read rumours. I have no idea whats true and whats not. Im not sure i really care. I dont know anyone personally.

However I can be sure of this.

If the saints take him and IF there is a story to be had.. you can bet your bloody house it will break when he signs with the Saints.

"Saints star (insert rumour)"

However - my personal opinions aside - and they are opinions aplenty because there is that many version or events - im not sure its a solid no from me.
I could be very tempted with a very well written contract and expectations.
Not that his keen on us anyway - apparently.

Had a very interesting conversation with a close family friend of the Stringer's while doing a speaking gig in Bendigo, his home town today. The place is a buzz with what his next move might be. Seems he once played a couple of games for the Bendigo Bombers. Anyhow, the nice lady I spoke to assured me his problems were due to his relationship break up and that it had affected him very badly. She blamed his partner and accused her of being a "nut job" who was making his life very difficult with her erratic behaviour. She told me her experience was that he came from a good, well respected family and that he was basically a decent guy. She rubbished claims he was on the drugs, but then again, how could she know for sure?

On a positive note, his family is very supportive amd his parents have moved to Melbourne to be with him, help out with the kids and get him back on track. That is encouraging news, no matter where he ends up. Those of us who have been through divorce, or relationship break ups where young kids are involved will know how traumatic that can be. It's enough to drive anyone down, especially one so young. This has been aggravated by the fact his partner is determined to play the whole mess out in public. The young man is just 23. Plenty on here have judged him without knowing anything about him or his circumstances. I don't know that what this lady said about him is true, but she seemed genuine and it seems that the folk at the talk were behind him, as was the town of Bendigo. Support is so important at these times.

I know Luke Beveridge punting him is a very big red flag as Luke is renowned for his man management skills, but he could end up the bargain of the century if he can be secured at the right price. Today's Dusty of yesteryear. All Australian and premiership player. Get him if we can. It seems Geelong is his first preference, with his connection to Hayden Skipworth giving the dopers an inside run. You never know what might happen. We might still be able to pinch him.
