I think a lot is still up in the air for the Giants in terms of roles including the superstars.Well, Keeffe is clearly not best 22 - well, at least I don't believe so - the best KPDs are Davis, Taylor & Haynes providing we don't decide to play 4 including Keeffe!
But he is the first KPD off the bench when anyone's injured, until we can develop a better backup. I'm on record as not being keen on him, but I will admit he's been solid enough this year when used. You can't have a star player sitting on the bench, apart from a young developing KPD, and he's been fine in that role in my view. Buntine is too small, old and limited now to be first or second KPD IMHO. Maybe Stein IMHO, although I'm not convinced. Not Idun IMHO, too small for the No 1 or 2 KPD jobs.
Heres a few.
What is Cameron's best role?
What is Greene's best role?
What is Williams best role?
What is Taranto's best role?
What is Riccardi's best role?
What is Coniglio's best role?
What is Whitfields best role?
What is Davis's best role?
What is Himmelberg's best role?
Do you have players that play a role depending on opposition match ups?? Do you have effective swingman on certain matchups?
Then you have youngsters to find their best roles and ways to contribute?
Some of the players to me are effective individually but possibly counter productive in terms of team cohesion and effectiveness especially regarding development and overall team out put.
When I am stated roles I am stated roles in the context of the team members playing with them on the day as well as the make up of your opposition on the day. I also am talking about roles in the sense sometimes Greene is in the guts, sometimes he is up forward etc..
I look at GWS and I know a lot of high draft picks were recruited. I think a lot of recruits have been stereotyped into certain positions and made to play certain roles and a set play has developed. Not enough insight into the strengths and weaknesses of each player individually have been made to empower them to adapt to forge their own roles within the context of an evolved GWS way that suits the strengths and weaknesses of the players the team has. Too many players are playing in a way based on when they were drafted to me. Part of that is because GWS is a new team and never had a forged team to start with such as how their team operated and so the youngsters where not really shaped when drafted compared to a already refined team. I am not blaming anyone, its just an observation and I think GWS now has the opportunity to shape the teams own identity based on the players that make up your list now and into the future rather than past exploits in different set-ups from different teams including pre-draft
