Ha, yes. Absolutely.

But tbh my concern was not so much about anyone's penchant for hyperbole, as it was about leviathan's new-found status as an adjective. :stern look
We're looking for good people.

Would you like to head up the nouns to adjectives department? I have my hands full with nouns to verbs.

As long as it doesn't effect my ability to keep on top of the 'Of/Have' department, I'm up for it.

If he does play (90% chance for mine), it will be interesting to see him battle Cerra and Brayshaw.
According tone Freo genius all LDU has done so far is "spud it up".

I would like very much for him to go over there and show them what they missed out on.

LDU is the best young talent I've seen since Carey.

Stephenson was always going to play more games earlier on but it's like being happy with recruiting Daniel Rich. Whereas we got the Sloane/Sidebottom.

Stephenson might get 40 joe the gooses but LDU will win 3 brownlows.

Both massive calls.

I agree he'll be a gun - you can see it. But comparing him to the GOAT and saying he'll win 3 Brownlow Medals is BIG (I hope you're right on that one fwiw!)

What has you making the comparison?

Also fwiw - at this point, he's the best young talent I've seen since Wells. Wellsy's body let him down as did his work ethic early on, which meant when he did show what he was capable of, it was only for a short period. I hope LDU can just stay fit and pump out games - then we'll see what he's capable of :)

I’m just waiting for the day we’re ten goals down at halftime and he single handedly brings us back, to win the game.
The boy is the truth.

Daniel Wells did not have a work ethic problem early on. That's utter nonsense. If anything, he was asked to work too hard in roles that were not suited to his body, but were intended to fast track his development.

You normally post the bait using your JeanLucGoddard account.

Probably should've explained that better - his work ethic is something that grew with playing those roles. It wasn't bad, it just needed improvement.

I remember that time I said Daw, Jacobs, and Anderson would be integral to our side. LDU is just another trophy in my 'times I was correct' trophy case. Currently the shelves are bending with the weight.

Nearly breaks the blokes ankles with that change of direction during the gather.

That kicking action is perfection too
Damn. I'm going to need to do a LDU version. This was a re-enactment of what Jy did to old man Boyd's ankles.

Personally I can't compare him to Carey or Wells, as he is a very different player. Let's just be cautious and say he is the next Cunnington with some more tools, which means if he develops to his full potential, he can be a better player than Cunnington.
