Not when he's that young. If he kicks 20 goals next year it would be insane. If he surprised if he plays much for us at all next year
Don't recall one key forward who kicked 30 in their first season at an AFL club.

His ability to play around the ground compliments Gawn. Gawn was constantly knackered last year from all the ground coverage. I also see Jackson being handy in defence near the end of quarters when we want to lock it up.

Just comes down to how many senior games he gets in the first couple of years.

Hogan 44 didn’t he?
Hoges had already done 3 pre seasons before that year and was much stronger physically than Jackson will be.

Not only that but we stuck Hogan in the square and probably kicked about 80% of our entries through him. Even if he plays the whole year Jackson would be lucky to get 1 in 4 kicked to him

Then that 1 in 4 that were kicked towards him only 1 in 5 will actually land near him or to his advantage

Ok so 60 insides 50s a game
Of which 15 (1/4) are targeted to jackson
Of which 3 (1/5) are on target
Of which 2 (2/3) he marks
With 50% accuracy he will kick 1.1 a game

BOOKMARK IT MUTHA f***erS

He absolutely was. I used to say this to fellow Demons supporters who mostly wouldn't listen. Hogan liked to beat up on the minnows but consistently went missing against top opponents. I was never fully sold on his ability.

Hot take but I can't imagine this being much of a talking point on here.

Shout yourself a look at the Hogan thread if you've got a few hours to kill ... your point might come up in the last 10-20 pages or so ...

Find the posts where I make the call he isn’t in the top 40 players 23 and under then get told I’m bizarre by Schmutt

He has come around now though. Come around big time! Onya Schmutti

At that stage he was in it and you were being polarising for the sake of it.

Nah I actually had about 80% confidence/belief in what I wrote and stand by it! Although I agree that the opinion was a little provocative back then.

It’s ok I know you love me. I set you free!
