    In one game he's already done more than Kent.

    Hand to foot speed is like a bullet. Jumps at at packs too... he's a jet in the making

    Impressive debut, he's taller than I thought he was. Couple of goals and his goal assists were great too.

    Feel good story of the year already, what a gun. Great first game, good job stepping up so quickly from the VFL

    If he keeps putting up those sort of 15 and 2 performances we'll be very happy, but I suspect he's capable of a lot more, can certainly see why the coaches felt that he had to be picked

    Was he drafted to be a high half forward / winger type? Think he'll be playing much closer to the sticks with that speed of disposal and goal sense. The way he was playing yesterday was more a direct competitor for Garlett's role than Kent's.

    Yeah Kents job is to get the ball around the wing and move it forward sometimes getting on the end, I'd say Hannan is going to be an inside 50 player

    Great to see him do well.
    Well done on taking the punt. Many dogs fans were happy to see him picked up, yet disappointed it wasn't us!

    I was pretty happy with yesterdays game. Does not look out of place at AFL level

    It finally came to me today who he reminded me of after knowing he reminded me of someone all weekend.... Chad Wingard

    He's really taken his game up another level. Such a versatile and difficult player to match up on.

    How many games does one have to play before the MFC player dental plan kicks in?

    Gives us a versatile and mobile marking option up forward, he's also come in at the most ideal time

    Been feeling a vital role in Hogan's absence that Weed wasn't ready for yet. Has done very well playing as the key forward.

    looked good round 1, lingered for a bit than got dropped. But since returning he's played outstanding alone in a key position

    I'm really looking forward to seeing what he can do when we've got an actual forward set up. He's got some real tools that he'll be a nightmare for whichever sort of defender is left to man him.

    A bit of Luke Breust about him. Difficult to match up on and just seems to bob up for little snap goals every week, especially when we're winning. Like.

    A couple of weeks ago I wasn't sure what he offered, but his last two games have been excellent. Dangerous type with plenty of tricks and talents.

    Same. He's given me something to like over the last 2 weeks.

    Nice rate of improvement from Hannan, which is the most promising thing for me.
