Ok yes, not at butcher level. More like deli. Needs to lift the 60 odd % disposal efficiency. The only part of his game that's letting him down.

Shiel’s disposal is elite, not sure anyone has actually watched enough of him instead of looking at stats
He’s pretty good when settled but at pace he shanks it often. Certainly not in the calibre of a Lovett who used the ball exceptional well at pace.

Anybody who quotes DE% as a statistic should be shot. Second worst stat in the AFL behind those absolutely useless "pressure acts".

I want you to look at the top 5 this year for pressure acts and make a case for how those players shouldn’t be there, if you can’t then you can’t possibly have it as the worst, kicking efficiency always favours defenders which everyone should know by now.

Mate, Champion Data themselves want to boot pressure acts as a stat because it means nothing. A broken tackle counts as a pressure act. Anybody who quotes it deserves to be ridiculed.
