In regards to SOS, he is a master of getting players into our club. The deals he struck in his 1st year with us to get 5 players in the draft was extraordinary. Our swap with the Crows' 1st pick this year was brilliant in my opinion. Gave Bolton and the rest of the coaches warning that we are ready to move up the ladder. Unfortunately for Bolton he didn't read that memo and he is gone. 1st pick this year won't be used in this draft anyway, it's going to go to another club for more senior players. I'm quite confident in saying that we have enough top end talent at our club, they are just on the wrong side of 25 at the moment.
As for Betts and Waite, Waite was great at the Blues. Just continuously injured/suspended, but he was much loved. Betts was a star at the club, but tended to fade out in games too often. Still, he was incredible for us and I think it's debatable whether he has improved all that much. His game for us against the bombers* where he kicked 8 goals was genius!
