very harsh....

Wines has been averaging 25 disposals a game since 2014
what’s he doing with those 25 disposals?

it’s all good to look at the stat sheet but in the end if you watch him he’s a poor user of the ball and IMO seriously unfit that gets exposed on the field. He simply doesn’t move well. Averages less than three quarters of the game on the ground.

His own club sacked him as captain after one season too.

Wines has been very, very good. Unfortunately he set the bar for himself in 2014-15 as a very young player and didn’t really make any improvement after.

Gonna put it out there.

I'm taking Macrae before Whitfiled in a redraft. Not by much, but still doing it. Was a good player as soon as he debuted and finds himself as a elite player with plenty of time left to win a Brownlow and another premiership medal.

Whitfiled is fantastic but couldn't match Macraes output if you compare their first 5 seasons.
