I mean Dusty is amazing, but I wouldn't really want him imo.
Maybe at this very moment, sure, but at 33-34, I mean we're all complaining about buddy's decline, but at least we had for some of his best footy. Would only get Dusty on the decline.
Maybe a Hodgesque deal, but I'm not really sure...
I understand that many are worried about Gould, myself included.
I do have to remind myself that there WILL be busts, but he won't be cut before being given some games to prove himself.
I hope he shows his worth, otherwise it may be a quick career at the swans for him.
It's a risk that a) Brisbane could take and b) We probably couldn't.
Especially since Brisbane didn't have to give anything up, whereas we would have lost Papley and McDonald.
I was on the side of getting him in, but 2019 would of been us getting royally screwed, and it was too late by 2020...
Fair enough, probably more of an issue of who's been put in charge. And I think someone already said it was an afl department than a swans department.
Also, I think you can agree that the amount of negativity surrounding Harley over very minor things is a little silly.
What do you mean no reason? it makes players more tired, which obviously makes the game better.
Not like skills are negatively affect from fatigue, that would be stupid.
Not like coaches pick athletes over players, that would be dumb.
LOL, one interaction between Hickey and Amartey and all of a sudden Hickey is a waste of time.
Talk about reading too much into one interaction, if I wanted to I could do the same for Dusty, take one interaction that makes him look bad.
Incredible how much negativity can foster from so little.
Ill extend an olive branch, in a perfect game you are 100% correct. Unfortunately the current meta is turnovers, and you want turnovers in your attacking 50 not your defensive 50. That's just the games meta.
Im 5 years time, maybe I'll be looking at this post like I'm an idiot. It could all be...
Richmond has shown that the kick inside 50 is relatively meaningless as long as it doesn't go directly to the opposition. Much more important not to have turnovers in the defensive half as well.
You can win games without marks inside 50, you can't if you aren't...
Yah, feels like we have this convo all the time.
IMO, heeney is not never going to be a full time mid. Not even mostly. Assuming he gets over his injuries, he's way too valuable in the forward line and half forward. Maybe gets in as an extra mid occasionally.
But even though he would be good...
Regarding the hack, yes ruck do matter, but I feel it more a mindset in some of our players. I may be wrong, but I don't remember seeing many hack kicks out of Richmond, and they're midfield as a similar ruck situation to us.
The difference is the mindset.
Space vs player. Richmond are...
