I don't think you can get a whole season out of smytty these days, but he might ease our top 6 woes for a few games while we await RNH. Let him be.
You're right than Smyth probably deserves a break. But fans are so sick of the past nepotism, giving breaks to so many players who didn't deserve it. Anymore breaks just sickens the fan base.
Also, it wasn't the lack of talent that bothered the fans (or maybe just me?) last season, with the vets, or the season before that even, it was the lack of effort.
Smyth didn't try last year.
