Criminally underrated.

He is a far superior footballer especially when compared to media love child’s like Talia, Blicavs or Hurley (disregard Rance because he is actually a good footballer).

If Robbie plays another 50-60 games to the standard he has set over the past 4 years then I’d happily argue he has had a better career than his brother.

Friday two weeks back.
There was a segment on SEN about footballers or sportspeople that needed to lift.
Some muppet nominated Robbie Tarrant most likely a pisstake and then Gossage not only agreed but justified it by quoting contested marking stats for 2019.
He was challenged by North listeners and then went even further and blamed Tarrant as the reason we are mid table.

Like most people in the media, they probably don’t watch the games. All they can do is point to irrelevant stats, rather than use the eye test like most people. I’m sure people in the media will soon make the argument that Jack Riewoldt is better than Tony Lockett because he runs more Km’s than him 🤦‍♂️

Robbie turning 32 but the viral outbreak gave body a much needed rest, could play until 34 and top key position backman are not abundant at the best of times.
