I thought the best we played all year was in Round 3 vs GWS, Reid’s only game.
Reid kicked 2.2 and had 12 touches 6 Marks.
Buddy kicked 2 goals and had:
19 kicks (season high)
22 disposals (season high)
10 Marks (equal 2nd best)
9 inside 50s (season high)
Thanks. But I'm still not encouragedDidn’t really get a chance at NEAFL level to show anything as was injured. I will say I wasn’t impressed before I found out he was trying to play through his injury.
I did rewatch his u18 video the other day though, and I really liked what I saw from him.
He was good enough preinjury for the club to quickly offer him an extended deal, so I am pretty excited to see him next season.
His season review video the other day said he played a role this year as a line coach in the NEAFL, which I thought was an excellent piece of development from the club.
Nope, those vegans give us a bad name. It's what I eat and I like animals. Those that advertise it consistently are probably the same types that go to work with a hole in their pants and then say "I know I have a hole in my pants" every five seconds.Do you go a day without telling everyone you are vegan ? Like the ones i know cant
My idea of Reid is that he is supposed to be our main link between half back and half-forward line. His endurance and running ability allows him to work across the field, get possessions to feed to the midfielders going forward, and force a defender to go with him or switch off him.I love how the most common argument people make in favour of Reid is how his presence in the team helps Buddy.
Not what Reid himself does, but how his physical existence in the forward line helps our team.
Why not just play a mannequin instead? More chance of making it onto the park every week and a lot cheaper.
Looking back at his GFsBuddy won’t see a flag here and won’t get another chance to imo.
Won’t play in another GF
Reid is a couple of inches taller than Mcartin and is an amazing overhead mark. If he can get on the park, we'll get more out of him than we will from Mcartin, but the "getting on the park" bit is the trick for Sam.Reid- it’s more he just wont get out there consistently. I thought he wasn’t bad in 2017, but geez 1 year in 3 he has played, so it’s almost getting beyond a joke, and he can go missing for large patches of footy. I’d almost rather just develop mccartin, but if he does get cherry ripe I agree can impact, but not as much as some think imo
Naismith was taking the piss a bit, he is promising, but he hasn’t really started his career, I’m confident he will be good, but not sure he elevates us greatly in 2019 beyond what sinclair was giving us, but maybe he and sinclair in the same side helps, I think what Naismith adds we might lose from stinkers, he thrived as a sole ruck, will he go backwards?
That's a great call , nice to have some footy nous on here for a change.Reid is a couple of inches taller than Mcartin and is an amazing overhead mark. If he can get on the park, we'll get more out of him than we will from Mcartin, but the "getting on the park" bit is the trick for Sam.
