Sounds like when I go to my mates house and it looks like a crack den, he won't let me take photos because he doesn't want people to see how he lives. I get it.That is not happening with North's social media team and I'm not sure if we'd be willing to give you guys the ability to stream it on our grounds (even if you wanted to)
Disappointing. I guess if we are lucky, we might get a match report that says everyone was great within 3 days of the game being played.That is not happening with North's social media team and I'm not sure if we'd be willing to give you guys the ability to stream it on our grounds (even if you wanted to)
"knees dont make a difference"...Still a big fella, knees don't make a difference.
He absolutely was (and is) an outright liability. Least reliable player in the list with or without ball in hand.I actually wouldnt mind seeing DMac get another run at it.
After seeing the leap some players have taken under Ratts, it would be interesting to see if Dmac could do the same.
He has plenty of great attributes and I wonder if some of his perceived weaknesses were in part due to Cho (and Playfair) and his gameplan/ethos.
He strikes me as of a similar personality type to Billings; quiet, introverted, intelligent; the type that tend to overthink and be very much a 'confidence player'. There he was, already on the fringe, stuck playing a highly accountable (and typically low-posession) position that he didnt play as a junior, in a team who's coach is all about structures and playing not to lose.
Is it any wonder why he might have been low on confidence and composure?
I think if Ratts were to do his thing; build him up a bit, take some weight off his shoulders and let him utilise his skills, there might be potential for him to become a consistent, solid contributer.
I mean hes on the list for another two seasons and wasnt ever (/often) an ouright liability. Might as well make the most of it and see what he's got to offer after being un-Cho'd?
On the other hand, I have plenty of man-love for JWeb so maybe the D-Train can stop at another station....
Good point. He did a fair bit of forward 50 ruckwork last year even w ryder and roma in the team.I think Max King will shoulder a lot more ruckload this season especially with Marshall’s situation.
With a fit frawley in the mix I dunno about that.Not playing Carlisle will be to St.Kilda's detriment. Simply better with him in the team. If he's not playing at the start of the season then he'll be back in the team (barring injury) by round 4.
