Just on the attached - focus on Bolton - great knock on, on the back flank/wing and then the run as he follows the play all the way to the forward flank and is the guy that dishes off to Chaos George for the goal.

Hope the leader and coaches got all over Bolton after that and he was duly recognised.

Almost more excited about what Bolton will do in the coming years than anyone else. :hearts:

No. 1 for tackles inside 50

No. 2 for marks inside 50

No 2 for marks inside 50!!! - yes he was our number two marking forward inside 50 across the year. Unbelievable.

Very impressive stats.

And they should also be tracking stats for bamboozles, he'd be miles in front of anyone.

I like that, "bamboozles".....He doesn't know what he's going to do, so how the feck is an oppo going to know.

This is what oppos don't get, he is very good overhead, he is very good defensively, he is very good at playing high HF and delivering inside 50, he is very good in scoring chains, he's very quick. I can't remember the word Dimma used to describe him, but he upsets oppo teams movement out of defence and get's invlolved in the turnover game.

He's one of my favourite players to watch.

Just needs to settle the fu** down and nail a few more shots on goal.....27.28 for 2019 can be improved on.

Hope he kicks 40+ next year and makes AA. MB will explode with salt.

Anybody know where the "GOAT" moniker came from for this bloke? It's not mentioned in this thread as to where it came from, as I just read through it the yesterday...

Logically he's not the Greatest Of All Time at anything other than chaos (maybe not even that), so surely that should be mentioned in the title instead...

He doesn't look like a goat, doesn't sound like a goat, doesn't do anything resembling the animal at all, so I don't get it from that standpoint, either.

Simples...
Original thread Title was miss-typed...it should have been...#11: Jason Castagna - all bow down to the GNAT...
JC reference to a gnat is cos they are small, fast, annoying and bite! Just like JC in the GF's... πŸ‘;)πŸ‘

GOAT at throwing away a norm by kicking 0.5 and one on the full
