Kicked a sweet, sweet goal. But was very, very poor for most of the night. 11 disposals, 50% efficiency, 4 clangers. 5 disposals at half-time and 3 frees against up to 3 qtr time. AFL Player Ratings makes no sense. It rates his 2nd quarter among the best, but he picked up 2 disposals and did absolutely nothing, didn't lay a single tackle, but had 3 inside 50s from 2 disposals (wtf?)

AFL App:
11 disposals, 6 contested, 6 turnovers, 2 intercept possessions, 1 goal, 4 score involvements, 1 mark, 11 pressure acts, 2 tackles, 265 metres gained, 4 inside 50s, 1 rebound 50, 1 1%'r, 3 frees against, 2 clearances.

More than half his disposals were turnovers. Terrible.

Sad to see him on the way out one of my favourite players in his hayday.

Looking back he has been a sneaky bad finals performer though. Was never the same after Crowley got him in 13.

He never developed the foot skills to cover his fading midfield abilities, cant tag etc anymore either

Not so sure about him being a finals disappointment, just had a look through his finals stats and they look pretty competitive. He was our best against Geelong last year, just to be fair. Just about the only one who tried his heart out for 4 quarters. His grand finalsare questionable certainly.

But yes, he looks destined for the NEAFL unfortunately. His skills are fading and his body type isn't conducive to modern day footy if you don't have real pace. Swans Hall of Fame beckons but I think he could be replaced very soon.

Still sorry to say but he is cooked. Can't buy a goal any more. Pressure is still decent but a small pressure forward who is slow, has no impact on the scoreboard and can't really kick anymore should not be getting a game.

Deserves to be dropped for his goal kicking or lack thereof last night.. pathetic for a veteran player. They are not even goals he missed because hes cooked.. should have kicked them last night and didnt. Simply unacceptable

His disposal efficiency is awful. He was at about 45% yesterday. Doesn't matter how much he gets the ball if he is disposing of it that badly.

This will probably be his last season I think he knows it. When he's on he's still one of our better players. Diffference between his best and worst this season is far too much, leading to inconsistent performances.
