    Really hoping we look to trade him at the end of the year. Should have tried to Palm him off to the Weags when they were desperate for outside pace and precision kicking (not saying that he has those traits in spades, but we could've lied to the dumb campaigners).

    Yes the comments about his kicking in today's game were interesting (I was not able to watch). In the AFL under significantly more pressure his kicks looked pretty neat and tidy with plenty of power. How about we just go with an off game??

    Really seems to have now worked into his game, but by the sounds he may be a backman rather than forward.

    In the pre-season he kicked a 9 pointer off one step so he can roost it ok.

    Sean Darcy was awesome today. Those snaps of his were incredible for someone his size.

    Ryan must be getting very close to a debut - thought he was also in the mix for BOG as he just worked hard all day... as his stats also show:

    13 marks! 24 disposals including 19 kicks and I reckon almost all of those hit the target. 2 inside 50s, and unlucky to miss a goal from a massive roost from way outside 50. Only 1 tackle is a little surprising and something he needs to work on - was also a criticism pre draft.

    I though sean Darcy , Blair bell deserve to be best. Sherriden is pure vanilla would rather put Luke Ryan than him.

    Remember it well and it seemed as though he wasn't attempting to whack the leather off the pill;just controlled power that travelled easy 55 or whatever.
    Can't see the issues with his kicking,in fact as a first year player he's not as good as Silly but who else beats him in their first half year??

    I saw him in his draft year. My opinion hasn't changed: He's a project player, and not a natural footballer. I still would have drafted him, but pick 7 was too early for me.

    Amongst 7 News' leading stories is a claim that Harley Bennell is being investigated for something. The accompanying vision showed Harley talking to one of the indigenous lads at Peel during one of the breaks so not sure yet what they're referring to. Anyone down there today see anything at quarter or three quarter time?

    I think they will be alluding to Harley being under the influence of something.

    Fair call. Keep him at Peel for the remainder of the year though.

    Meh. Just saw it. Looks like he was giving advice to Traye Bennell. A bit dopey to interrupt a coach's address though.

    1) Development - WAFL will allow Logue to further develop his natural footballing instincts. He will be a better player for it.

    2) Hunger - Make him earn a spot. Gifting games to players can give them a false sense of security, they won't work on the things they need to.

    What is your relationship to Logue?

    All Shepperd's addresses are just inane ranting full of f**k bombs, deserves to be interrupted.

    I thought at one point one tv shot showed Bennell on the Peel bench talking to a player - presume he might not be allowed there?

    Thing is I wouldn't even call it that. Most of his kicking was fine and he got plenty of it, linked up well and mostly used it well.
    There aren't many players who can kick 50M easily, like effortlessly. He may well have Rich/Suckling type power as he develops. He's already shown he can take a contested mark. Looked to panic a bit at the top level but at the much slower pace of WAFL he looks unhurried and makes good decisions. If he can become that Heath Black half back type that kicks it 60 and hits targets . . . There is a lot to like

    Well I agree is better to allow him to play more game time in wafl that afl with limited minutes.

    He was upset with a 7 cameraman about something and confronted him , may have something to do with it.

    A right footer with a really unusual assessment of time and space.When you think he's likely to be hammered and claimed within a step or two he takes another step or two and delivers untroubled.
    I'd imagine he'd be something like Silly where it's unobtainable for mortals but our wrong peg's as good as everyone else's right peg.

    I think Cam's getting an education as well because he's improving.
    Maybe he's asked Harley and others to get amongst the blokes with advice and encouragement?
    Although salim's suggestion is he got the shits.
    If I was him I'd be having a fat relax now and again;be tempting to vent.
    Elite athletes are very determined beasts.
