Jenkins would have been a better option than Rohan, but that also says more about Rohan being a witches hat last night than anything else.

JJ would have seagulled a goal or two. Runs damn hard to get the easy goals in the goal square.
And Rohan runs hard round in circles so he gets to hit the rub down table

Rohan was pretty good v Lions so not surprised he kept his spot. Plus he’s their missing piece up forward

But then they were all pretty good v Lions then went missing last night

As a missing piece he fits their profile: too old too slow

Rohan should just retire now, he should never be picked in any finals side again

That draft couldn't have gone worse for us.

James Fantasia was a woeful recruiter for us. That legitimately may have been his best haul.

Danger is actually a great kick around the ground and also at goal when there is little weighing on the result. Kicked a massive bomb from outside 50m during the season and great goal on the boundary vs the Lions last week, but not much was resting on those kicks.

Unfortunately for him the pressure of the situation hits him hard, its a massive flaw and makes it hard for him to be positioned as a reliable key forward.

You are correct, he can clunk a big mark and can crash packs. Its purely his mental side of the game that hurts his goal kicking, as he has the weapons to kick long and straight.
I noted Danger having a few puffs on an asthma puffer / inhaler before the game and I can't help but wonder if this was why he wasn't used more in the midfield. High humidity from the storms during the day wouldn't have helped if he is asthmatic. That said - start of the 3rd, when everyone knew Richmond would up the ante, he should've at least started there.

Tex speech wasn’t great, but we lost what do you want?
I still feel James Hird speech in 2001 after they lost to Brisbane was worst and they won the previous year he even got the Norm Smith in 2000 as well.
