Spit or Swallow?

It is an ageless question that has haunted coaches all preseason, but with lockout looming the time has come to make a call, spit or Swallow him up? Is David Swallow in your team? Or does the number one draft pick not get a guernsey? Let us know!

It is an ageless question that has haunted coaches all preseason, but with lockout looming the time has come to make a call, spit or Swallow him up? Let’s weigh up some positives and negatives:

Positives:

  • He is a brilliant footballer, in fact he is the most talented in the rookie priced group and deserves to be rewarded by going all the way and selecting him.
  • If you chose not to swallow it could be a massive slap in the face.
  • His job security is a good reason to jump out of your comfort zone and get him in.

Negatives:

  • If he turns out to be a flop and doesn’t produce, he will be a waste of money.
  • If rookies costing $60K less are producing the same, if not bigger scores it will leave a bitter taste in your mouth.
  • There are many alternative players I could mention for a similar price but it would be too much of a mouthful. I’m not here to dribble and regurgitate what you already know, so the time is almost here and the decision needs to made before lockout. You can’t afford to make a spur of the moment call that leaves your team looking unfinished and messy.

What are our thoughts? Swallow or go elsewhere?
