Didnt understand half of that, but I'm pretty sure I agreeRowbottom's goal doesn't happen without the Lizard. Struggling for sure but everyone so under the pump with this year's mindfu**. Should have gone for that final quarter 50m goal. Playing a position he wouldn't be if we had half the injuries. Has more upside than most, toys out the cot in this place is getting very old.
100%...He doesn't look the type to put on weight easily either. He is about 2 more pre seasons away from getting the body he needs. He needs time.In the first half Blakey was non existent, in the second half he had a real go. Kid's in his second season, really needs to bulk up but honestly I think he's doing fine.
I understand what you are saying, but we really needed those 4 meters. Some extra size might build the confidence he needed to be able to settle a little more before blasting away as he thought the contact was coming. Thats why he simply needs the time to build his body. He is going to be a jet, I dont know why people are overly concerned about him right now. He needs the time. Expectations for immediate performance on this kid are way overs. I would give him a spell this week to re group a bit. Doubt it will happen though.you know he was about 4 metres in total from having a 3 goal game.
its never as bad as you think and its never as great as you think.
we and he are struggling but things can turn around with just a little luck. He's a developing player not a tony lockett who has already won a brownlow. there just needs to be an adjustment of expectations. personally i dont think he is too far off. but this website is prone to overreactions in every direction.
i'm still not quite sure what his position is. i think we've had to put a lot of square pegs in round holes over the last few years whereas if he'd come into the team in 2012 he'd be a great fifth wheel as he develops. instead we are in such desperate need to kick goals that its just putting too much pressure on him - let him play and see what he is like in 2022 (along with the rest of the team)
Needs to be dropped. It's a 17 round season and we are now up to round 9. This "give him time" approach is good and all but by the time he's found form again it'll be round 16 at this ratewas still mostly uninvolved for someone rated so highly, yesterday needs to be his version of a bad to average game

Yes it could be a better plan. Or he just goes the whole season struggling. I'm really not sure how that would be productive at all.This makes sense if we had an experienced replacement and a win or two would be the difference between making finals or not. But it's not that sort of season. I think learning how to turn his own form around, learning how to keep going deep into a season etc is a better plan.

Doubt he’s been carried because he’s guaranteed of being a future star. Perhaps the harsh reality that we’ve had a lot of injuries to our forward line. At times we’ve had no Franklin, Reid, McCartin and Sinclair. Hayward was struggling also prior to being injured.whys blakey carried like its guaranteed he is a future star,

The list only runs so deep.
