If ifs and buts were....

If we’d taken Cyril, would he have become the player he became at the hawks? Would a Minson have made a difference? Etc, etc, etc...

Maybe they would have, but then the systems and players around them would be different and results may have been vastly different...

True,but having Riolli in our side was preferable to him not being in our side.Why did Didoro doubt the word of Longy and Kickett?

You'd have to ask him, but it was the year that Sheedy got "sacked". And Sheeds was keen on him.

Then along came Matty Knights and Ashley Prescott who had some hair brained ideas about Davey Myers.

Sheeds should have given those 3(Didoro,Knights and Prescott))the Jack Dyer treatment on not Stuffing up his Football Club.

And made Didoro promise to get Riolli Drafted by Essendon.

Awww come on.... Everyone knows that Matty was correct in his call that Jay Neagle was >>> Matty Lloyd as a Full Forward.

Though I do tend to side with Mark McVeigh on this one (and for what he said in response to Knights knob polishing Boots Reimers)
