Has very impressive stats already at the Dees; zero clangers, zero turnovers, zero fumbles.
He looks to me as if he may well be a good buddy for TMac wherein they will discuss such things as astrophysics, the political situation in East Timor and how unusual it would be to spell Adam as Adem

An underrated recruit for mine, I think Tomlinson will prove to be an important addition on the wing for us. Quality runner who will help us defensively and offensively, has a height advantage and it's been mentioned on here before, but I feel he will help us with his lead-up work around the ground.
Anyone with something resembling lead up work anywhere around the ground will help at this point. I’m warming to the bloke.

Foolish. Everybody knows that leading is old hat. Modern tactics dictate that you should always run 45 degrees away from the guy with the ball, toward the boundary line and/or 17 opponents. Preferably doing so with the urgency of a drunk cat with some token finger pointing to boot. #journey #brand #DNA

Interesting snippet from the Gus Brayshaw article on AFL website. I must admit I hadn’t noticed Tomlinson much in last few games. But seems to be doing his job.

I think that's how he's always been. He's not an eye catching winger like Isaac Smith or Langdon etc, even when at GWS. Gets 15 odd touches and helps with the structure a lot. Can plug a hole almost anywhere if needed. Epitome of a role player and very consistent which I like, rather than a Hunt/ANB/Smith etc who have one good game in 5.

Has still had his wtf moments over the past few weeks, but he is far less offensive to my eyes than Oscar is playing the same role.

Was easily his best game for the club yesterday imo, thought he was really solid defensively and by foot.

Played well defensively and his decision making out of defense was top notch

It’s great that he’s playing well down back but it’s so ironic we grabbed him as a wingman cos we had none and now he’s playing KPD despite us having a handful more not getting a game.

I like to perceive him as a winger that pushes back into a key defensive role and it soothes my mind

He's becoming an important role-player in this team, but i must say we paid a lot of money for an average role-player. At the very least he is stopping all the young trash key forwards from having their breakout game against us and making us look bad.

My guess is Sportsbet is covering his salary for this reason

Funnily enough, I think his contract was similar to that of Frosty's , the man he has now replaced in our backline. xD

On a related note, have you considered changing your username to something more David King friendly instead? ImissPremiershipKryptonite perhaps?
