I don't care too much what they say unless they sound utterly cynical. I care what they do. And one thing you need to consider is that farting around and shifting towards wanting proven 24 year olds as opposed to up and coming 20 year olds, as a choice, may create the dynamic where they then say things and make choices you view as unprofessional. It becomes a self perpetuating cycle you can then posture behind. You're missing my Landon point. Landon was squeezed out of BL when they were good. BL when he was first there was top 2. By the year he was loaned out they were 15th. To me a team that thinks it is set can squeeze out its future. From my perspective it feels wasteful and dishonest to bring up people through U20 and then have lame excuses why they can't jump to senior ball. The investment stuff sounds vaguely like welfare talk. I have a friend on one of our other Olympic sport national teams. They invest as much for their benefit as hers. If she has a rotten season -- like she is this year -- they will drop her from the training and the team for the next season. It is not a charity. You are as valuable as you are useful.
