I posted this in the Autopsy thread but I think it bears repeating here:He's getting murdered in particular for "that kick" but that kick was exactly what Noble has been spruiking, trying to make things happen and learning the hard way when failing. He can be blamed for the goal going the other way to a degree but he can't be blamed for the next five, our guys should collectively be better.
He tried his guts out all day and he's only going to get better. Feels like he cops more from some people here because they didn't like where we drafted him but gee, don't know if I've seen a 19 year old ten gamer cop it like this from some.
Just on that Mahony kick into the middle. I noticed that Jy (I think it was) who was about 25m away near our HFF actually called for him to centre it so it's not 100% Mahony's fault. With the new game plan it will be a learning curve of knowing when to slice through the middle on the 45's and when to go down the line, so I reckon in 10 games time this mistake doesn't happen.
