Obviously I agree. If he can hit the ball (and the man contesting the ball ) hard he will make it. His skills are a bonus but winning contested footy is non negotiable at AFL level and he has been guilty of trying the finesse a few times too many. He would make a nice inside /outside mid or HBFlanker if he gets the body work organised.Agree with this. I backed Parson's upgrade from Rookie to main list on the back of his skills and play to that point. Vdubs was on him when he came from ER i think.
Then he got that 3 year deal and the pull outs started. I could accept the few odd bounces of the ball, but there were multiple times where h needed to go and didnt. Then the skill errors increased and the play that had got me excited about his upgrade left and I was left very disppointed.
Last year his form was up and down but it began to come back nut I still saw the pulling out. If as you say he can get the GRUNT back.... he has a good chance.
