When Mahony got the free yesterday, my daughter got excited and said we can still win. I replied that unfortunately, the kid can't kick that far. Then, the quick handball and I said "oh, but this bloke can" and boom!fu** can this bloke roost a footy.
I agree, his kick in the first quarter on the nearside wing to give a leading target no chance from 30 metres was really poor when we were swimming against the tide; I think it's the third year of the contract in 2021 (along with Tyson)? The bell is tollingAaron's disposal & decision making this season has had some incredibly poor outcomes for an AFL player.
He needs to correct things quickly or it will all end very quickly once the list is back near full strength.
This is his second year at North. Is he on a 3 or 4 year deal? His lace out forward 50 entry to Scott was great ball use.I agree, his kick in the first quarter on the nearside wing to give a leading target no chance from 30 metres was really poor when we were swimming against the tide; I think it's the third year of the contract in 2021 (along with Tyson)?

I thought he was appalling against Essendon but the last two games have been more like it.Yep.
But as I've said before, sadly his detractors only need to witness one or two errors that play to the pre-conceived notions for the endorphin hit of confirmation bias to kick in (and completely cloud their opinion).
Well said, ferbs.
I thought it was very noticeable against the Tigers that he did exactly as you say, but you jump on here and just see the same cliched criticisms regardless. So we appear to be at the point now where it really doesn't matter how he plays, or how many targets he hits by foot, his more vocal (read: blinkered) critics are just going to trot out the same lines week in and week out.
Was more of a sidestep, then a look of contempt at Crouch, loved itHis execution in that brilliant coast to coast was sensational. The mark, evasion and kick - all superb.
Edit - actually the mark was standard, the evasion of Matt Crouch was good but it was Matt Crouch. What made it brilliant was the quick decision to take off with Crouch right there, the awareness of options and the 55m pass that hit Zurhaar without him breaking stride.
