When you see quality AFL standard ruckmen changing clubs for a third round pick or less, you wonder we keep persisting with highly speculative young ruckmen.

Sure we've had one elite season from Gawn, but also seven that were largely underwhelming. 

I'm happy to have one of King or Filopovic on the rookie list, but we don't need both and certainly I can't justify a spot on the senior list. Far better to look for the next Nankervis / Jacobs / Martin (whoops, we already had him).
