Looking forward to the "but's" tonight.

This is going to require some extraordinary imagination, even for this thread.
There is no buts, nobody should say s**t. Him & Thompson were clearly the BOG by daylight.

The backline could only do so much, and that area of the field was arguably the best.

Someone needs to ask Higgins where his head is at.

He was one of our best but overall he’s part of the problem
I kind of agree but it's not on him per se. There are too many the same though. He had a solid game tonight, but next week one of the other average blokes will also have a solid game. He's a good foot soldier to round out your 22 - but we need more than that to improve.

I’ll be straight down the line, Jmac was Okay again tonight.. he wasnt magnificent, he wasnt stellar he wasnt a passenger.. he is a half back, half backs are there to arrest play and also be creative.. he turned the ball over, early in the third gave away a silly holding to GAJ and also dragged it in,. He didnt put his body on the line and he did absolutely fu** all to run the ball off the half back line.. so he gets a honorable mention for tagging GAJ in the D50? Have a spell! He played OK, thats it and he wasnt the worst out there by a long shot,. He still doesn’t cut the mustard

Well done JMac!
Great game.
Hopefully that’s improved what we can trade you for.
Gone from nothing to a Rookie pick.🤣
Like I said earlier, if he can bring his value up from a box of vics to a box of stone n wood then im happy! .. there is bugger all chance this guy is on our list next year if there is any club interested

Jmac shouldnt be lit up tonight, theres an entire midfield to torch instead of Jmac tonight! Jmac tried his best, he gave his all, he was not the reason we stunk it up tonight...

HOWEVER:

He hasnt got the ticker to put his body on the line, he hasnt got the ability to be creative off half back (unless he’s on an immature spud), he hasnt got the vision, awareness or peripherals.. what he does have is the ability to surprise himself when taking a contested mark because his eyes are usually closed.. oh, and he tagged gaz a beauty without tackling the bloke.. actually gax pinned him for holding the ball, believe it or not..

Ah well, lets hope someone gives us something for him

Was great tonight. I was there at the game and he was a rock down back

The criticism is unwarranted
Don’t get me wrong Mrs MacMillan your son played a great game tonight, you should be proud. It’s just that it’s very rare for him to do so and he only stood out because everyone else was s**t.

Mate he cannot do anything right under your eyes

/we play well including JMac

“Oh JMac wasn’t as good as everyone else, didn’t stand out”

/we play like s**t but JMac plays well

“Oh he only stood out to have a good game because everyone else was s**t”

Nah nah nah nah nah, hold up bloke, imagine if rory laird or brodie smith played in his spot.. those two have kept the crows in the 8.. all positions on the ground are valuable, some more so than others.. a very good spine, decent mids and classy half backs will a flag, im not convinced our half backs are good enough.. drive and run comes from half back plus mids, lol we scored 1 goal tonight.. how much drive was coming from the half backs (and mids)?

You can dress it up all you like, we had ZERO drive and run from half back
