I wouldn't care if we traded him and got nothing for him. He's trash.
Another quality contribution.

Yet another season when the opposition coaches (AFL Coaches Award), the umpires (Brownlow) and our coaches all get it wrong but the Great Brett Cummings Bearded Clam and a few of the usual suspects are of course right.

He’s Rubbish!

McAdam did very well considering games played.

Do you want to work your magic and do the top 10 based on average score per game?

Keays too high, Smith way too high.

Other than that, pretty well right.

Great to see Berry and Soligo in the top 10, McAdam the quiet achiever.

It won't happen

We don't know how to utilise skill players at all, Sholl or anyone else. We don't hold any structure around stoppages or around the ball at any time

It's why Hately ends up on the wing and Murphy is our dream hff. Crash in, numbers to the contest, hack it forward, try to repeat the process

For us the wing/hff positions end up just crash n bash mids that we can't fit into the midfield at the present time
We utilised Seedsman just fine last year in this role.

I'm not saying coaching doesn't have some fault, but I agree with Bicks on Sholl. He fell off completely especially with his decision making and kicking (from what he showed early in his career) and when exposed to any physical contests he lacks strength and athleticism (knocked off the ball with slow recovery).

I really liked him early on so I'm not writing him off. He seems to have lost of lot of confidence in his strengths and his weaknesses are easy to expose.

Fog really came home with a wet sail.

ROB should be embarrassed he couldn't crack the top ten.

Congratulations to Rory Laird, a worthy winner and very underrated by some “Crows Supporters”.

Jordan Dawson also had a superb season despite having to plug many holes in our team.

Tex superb (lucky he didn’t just ****off and retire two years ago as suggested by certain BF posters).

Brodie Smith and Tom Doedee had much better seasons than you would think if you read BF.

Great effort by Fogarty, Soligo and Berry!

Nah, season long I'd only have Walker ahead of Keays, maybe Fogarty. Agree re: Smithers

ROB not being top 10 should be a wake up call for him
