Will do some recalculations at season's end as I feel like I've stuffed up.​

To all the Graham denials at the start of the year: You can apologize to me in here or via PM. Happy to accept #IWasRight :)
Was always on your side. I found it incredible that this kid could play AFL footy with a busted shoulder. I couldn’t even raise my arm to get the fedora off the rack. He’s elite and showed a few boys out there how to hurt teams both way. An absolute complete game by an inside BBMF.
September is around the corner for Jack Graham










That Is! Of course it is.

51,039 was today's crowd.

2 weeks in a row his average crowd has dropped thanks to s**tty weather. :thumbsdown:
Well that’s a surprise and really an excellent turn up as it looked like 30k out there. Must have been lots of fans under the back cover of the stadium watching it in the warmth.

Gimme some of that action :) I’ve always been a defender of fridge. Lots of people looking pretty silly writing off a player who at the time had played 20 odd games. Has still only played about 30-40 games!

Am I imagining it or does he look fitter than ever. He no longer has the billiard table legs of his rookie year , is thriving as a contested ball winner and tackling machine. Well done jack
Grigga mentioned that he had slimmed down a little over the past off season. Club wanted him a little leaner so he could transition over the ground easier. Seems ro be working.

Fantastic game by Fridge today.

The 14 tackles is amazing.
The 4 goals are brilliant.
But the 8 inside 50's
36 pressure acts
594 meters gained
Are some serious stats and show his work rate and effort.

Best game for the club.

He’s without a doubt looking incredibly fit which is fantastic to see!

His form at the end of 2017 was absolutely fantastic, especially for such a young an inexperienced player. There was an element on catch twenty two that came with those performances though. Because he was so good, so early it was only natural for fans to expect his development to continue improving. However it can take a few seasons to really develop a tank and fitness base required to consistently perform at the top level.

It really appears he’s hitting his straps and man is that exciting!

Has developed his game , I was critical of him early on that he was caught standing still too often with the ball, has clearly taken my advice to watch how cotch plays and attack the ball at pace

Best pick 53 of all time?

Yes, without a doubt.

Interesting. I thought he'd be in the running - and he will be - but I have him at #6 at best. He's probably not even the best Richmond selection.

So here's who is ahead of him at this stage (no particular order)

Dan Jackson - B&F winner
Lindsay Thomas - yes, he's a cheating, diving flog, but he was good enough to be AA and play 200 games and kick lots of goals.
Michael Walters
Adam Selwood - 180 games and a flag
MIchael Braun 200 games and a flag

Then you have players like Tom McDonald who kicked 50 goals last year (and been terrible this year, but still fairly young), Simon Taylor (useful ruck) and a couple of other handy pick-ups.

Of course, Graham is still young and developing. He may get to the top of the pile.

What it means is Pick 53 is a good one to have! It's not a bad hit rate (better than most in the 50s). If you have to dump a list-clogger, and pick 53 is on the table, grab it.
