Shiel’s kicking inside 50 makes me cry a little. That and his inability to kick goals. That stops him from being a genuine A-grader.
How often does a side win an inside 50 count but lose a match?
He is a massive disappointment so far.
It’s embarrassing to think we wasted those picks and pay him that astronomical salary.
But that’s footy sometimes
I’m not surprised.I thought he was in the conversation as a top 10 mid in the competition. That's why I didn't really bat an eyelid when we used two first round picks on him.
We're not "winning" this trade, which was really the first monster fish we traded for, we're not even close. I agree that's a massive disappointment.
It's weird to look at it in isolation, and I think I'm really responding to DapperJong's post, but when I break it down I'm much closer to massively disappointed than not. He's played 1 game at the standard I thought would be regular and it was still littered with skill errors (i.e. Good Friday).
I’m not surprised.
It may also be symptomatic of having a forward line that is bush league.When he took a couple of steps to compose himself he drilled the ball into the post half way up from 60 yesterday, that’s a clear illustration that he just needs to take a step to balance himself.
It’s not as if he can’t kick, the execution is just lacking at the moment.
This is Big Footy's only comeback to the certitude of armchair opinion. I think we should all cop "this post has aged well" every now and then. May keep us from getting too het up in the moment.Admittedly it's early days and there is a good chance this time next year he is playing well and someone would think it would be insightful to quote these negative posts and say something creative like "this post has aged well".
