Tinks

The Harley Bennell Thread

Recommended Posts

Sam McClure is reporting on trade radio that Freo are looking to trade him if possible. Obviously has had some troubles but has insanely good talent and would come super cheap. Worth a look for the right price?

Absolutely NO. The positive is, Freo are clearing up cap space.

Sam probably read that on a fake Twitter account.  Much like what he reports.  He was caught out last week. 

 

Take no notice of that peanut

Absolutely not.

It would be an absolute circus having him at the club. All he'd bring to the table is injuries, night club incidents etc....

No.

After further thought... absolutely no.

I honestly believed he would become one of the best players in the comp. He looked every bit a star in the making. There wouldn’t be many takers now if any.

Slow news morning. They've been talking about this for a very long time.

One of the biggest wastes of talent in the last decade.  Probably part of the great legacy that Karmichael Hunt left at the Suns.

Colin Sylvia would give him a good run for that title, maybe he was the decade before Bennell

I'd eat a Sylvia Bennell [censored] sandwich for pick 5 & 6 though. Party in Bali on minimum afl wage for 3 years.

Brilliant idea.  Sign up Bennell & Re rookie Sylvia.

We have the culture to take on someone like this... but Bennell is too far gone for mine.  I don't think the best culture in the world could keep him under wraps.

No from me too.

Yeah he has had 7 seasons to get his body and professionalism right... no chance he makes it. Hopefully he goes to Carlton and makes them implode so they can dive deeper into illrelvance.

I'd take him. Sure he has been a fruit loop and has had his fair share of injuries but he'd come for free so what's there to lose. I think our club is strong enough to handle him if he goes awol. He was one of the best players in the comp at his best so he'd be in our top 5 players if he got healthy.

We’d have plenty to lose. You don’t want this guy and what he gets up to off the field anywhere near the club.

Not sure he would necessarily clear up cap space, having signed a new contract a month ago.

it would be a breach of the no richard cranium policy

It certainly would ....... May may be stretching that already.

mutual agreement, he'll ask for match payments for 2019 season ie: 22 x $4,000 per game and move on.
