Typical Robbo, didn't know Luke had re-signed earlier this year, the Chief football writer for the Herald Sun is a confirmed buffoon.
Still doesn't hurt to have him say it on air, he took the opportunity to hammer home how much he loves the club and he's committed. Robbo asked the question with an eye to North supporters who were watching at home, and not all of us keep up with contract news.

The media grab of him warning sides about playing Richmond on the run home was cringe worthy.

Arrogant flog.
Put a fork in the Tigers now, have played interstate twice this year, after 16 rounds!

How do you have a 7-8 record when you’ve had the advantage of playing in Melbourne almost the entire year!

if you take into account longer quarters plus more TOG he's actually gone down in disposal numbers this year.
Think that's a pretty simplistic take.

He's playing far more minutes up forward vs midfield, then he was last year (likely due to tank/longer quarters).

Personally, I actually think the shorter quarters suited a burst player like LDU.

LDU is one of those guys that instinctively draws players which opens up space for teammates. Much like with Cunnners, who in his early days was pinged more often taking on the play. LDU seems on a similar path in that regard, 25 from him will be more value than 25 from many others.
