Yes.

His output this year has been good considering the guy just game off a massive surgery that sidelined him for the better part of a year and missed out on junior footy.

No, he wouldn't be delisted one year after we ******* drafted him, what are you, nuts?
Read the post.
I didn’t say we should delist him.
If he wasn’t a Crocker would he be using up a spot on the main list or be a Rookie.

Isn't it obvious?

The list is barebones as s**t, and we were riddled with injury before the season even began.
Luckily in the last 2 years Rookies have been allowed to play without being elevated, otherwise The Bull would have spent the year killing VFL players whilst Crocker takes up a spot on the list.

Didn’t think you could, but doesn’t that make the selection even more questionable.?
No...In under 16’s he was projected to be a top 20 draft pick for his year. The only reason why he slid so far was because of his injuries.

His talent alone well and truly justified his selection.

Agreed in under 16s.
The scouts didn’t rate him in the 2018 draft.
We picked him at #69, we could easily have taken him as a Rookie.

Nope, a respected player.
Doesn’t necessarily mean that the respected players opinion is correct . At the end of the day no draft pick is guaranteed success , it’s all open to interpretation and opinion of when & where they should or shouldn’t be selected .

The fact is that Crocker had not played in the last 2 years before being drafted but according to a couple of people that I speak to that are involved in the AFL junior pathways they believed that had he been able to play in that time and go to work on his strengths & weaknesses going on his under 16 performances at the championships he was projecting as a top 20 pick ( maybe their opinion is incorrect ) . Unfortunately that didn’t happen , maybe he gets drafted due to his name or maybe recruiters saw where his potential could take him and took a chance that they might find a diamond in the rough .

Just personal opinion here but he looks pretty decent from the VFL games that I’ve seen , yes there’s work to be done but why wouldn’t there be after no footy in 2 years .

I seriously hope he makes it, no reason not to.
Let’s just not put on a pedestal yet that he can fall off.

Heard he’s a nice kid and yep needs another 10 kegs.
Fitness will come, but he’s not streets ahead of anyone else as claimed.
If he needs another 10kg, then why did your original snipe relate to him being at the front of the lunch queue? Sound like dedication to me.
