    Reminds me of Sam Mitchell with his foot skills and his leadership is Paul Kelly like, fitting he wears 14

    He is taking the piss, but most will eat it up.

    He might be the best player I've ever seen

    Mills is easily the GOAT already. Open your eyes.

    Set for 50 games this week.

    Think he's only missed 3 possible games since being drafted which is a credit to him.

    Wow another 50th game milestone.

    Credit to Mills he's one of the toughest kids I've seen play so he's earned every single one of his fifty games thus far.

    Yeah I think when a player starts their career at such a high standard right out of the gate, people's expectations can be warped. We've seen this with Zak Jones, with Aliir Aliir and seems we're seeing it with Mills now. If it weren't for his Rising Star win which established how great he could potentially be, we wouldn't even bat an eye-lid if he played a sub-par game. Now whenever he plays one it's like he's on the downward slide. Truth is, very few players start on an upward gradient and continue it throughout their careers. Nothing unusual about him having some average games mixed in with his good ones. He's a 21 year old whose played 50 games. The emphasis should be on the amount of good ones he's actually had so far in his young career.

    Might not be a bad thing. Most of us want him in the middle anyway. This gives us a chance to arrange a defence without him and when he comes back he could potentially slot into the mids.

    Like 2016 when he was rushed into the GF

    Won’t be the difference weather we go all the way or not imo

    That’s not knocking him by the way as a player

    I don't think we'll notice Mills missing when Melican is back and Rampe plays Mills role
