Mitch McGovern?

Claims he came very close to signing with Westcoast (and the Muppets)

Whilst I think he would have been a good pickup, and like the idea of reuniting the brothers, I don't think we would have had much to offer him?
He'd be waiting for injuries or JK's retirement to get a game surely?

Says he got quite jealous of Jeremy for playing in and winning a flag, but he has gotten past it now, clearly because moving to Carlton shows he has no interest in winning one, at least not until his contract runs out.

He seems like a talented individual, but honestly I think the key part of that is "individual". Seems to be very self serving at the moment and if he is in fact that way then I wouldn't want him at the club. But he could just be putting up a media front and he could be a humble clubman. At the moment he would be purely depth at our team anyways and considering his injury history, not exactly what you would like as depth.

He alluded to their being other personal issues in the mix as well. He's not talking about it, but clearly it had an impact on him.
