Feel like Clarence is getting s**t-canned because his best is fantastic and he hasn't been close to it this year (but has still been decent). Petracca has relatively low expectations because he's never put together a consistent season and still hasn't been particularly good.30 touches a game isn't an impressive stat anymore mate especially when 22 of them are handballs that go 1m to a bloke that gets tackled. Petracca has done more that Oliver this year from 10 less disposals per game I'd guess.
Least of our worries is one way too look at it, but if he regresses back to a good player and doesn't become a star then we don't progress. It's all well and good to kick the bottom 5 players on the list as the reason we are s**t but facts are your best players need to play well for you to be good. There's more of a need for Oliver Tmac May Gawn Salem Viney etc to play well next year than ANB Stretch Hannan Hunt etc
Comparison for this year. The only areas Petracca comprehensively has Oliver beaten is in goals, contested marks and marks inside 50 (obviously). Oliver doesn't deserve the bricking he's getting at the moment. There are 30+ other names on the list who should be copping s**t before him.
