Jackson will be better than Gawn and Grundy
Big call.

I think he projects to be Naitanui like if all goes well but not as explosive or powerful, but much better game sense

A long way to go though.

Hopefully he doesn’t end up back in Perth to replace Naitanui in a few years’ time.

I got sledged through the week for saying Oliver was untradable. That’s why. Yes, he’s gone back a step this year trying to take the game on more, but when it clicks, like it did tonight, he is a game winner. Every bit as much as Petracca imo. Only difference is Oliver has been a better player over the course of his career so far.

Reminded me of the Mothers Day game in 2010 - Richmond and Adelaide both 0-6, scores close at 3/4 time, Richmond lose by 50.

Soul-destroying, but the sun will rise tomorrow. Crows supporters need to buy in for the long haul.

Check our experience profile and our injuries.

Like yeah, worst team in the comp but no Brad Crouch, Sloane, Smith and lost Hamill early by a coward dog act so down a rotation.

Have a spell.
Coward dog act ? Bit over the t
Was a good tackle Years gone past, a Sling tackle now, and yes he probably will get suspended.

Ed’s fawning over Crocker, Weideman, Seedman, Jock McHale, or anything else ex-Collingwood tonight wasn’t exactly top shelf commentary. They could do no wrong.

I'm going extraordinarily early, but I haven't seen an 18 year old ruckman (who for the most part, is playing out of position) with that combination of athleticism, follow up work and game sense in a long time.

Nailed that pick.

Pickett a very astute pick too. Might take a bit longer but he has something special

Opposition was poor so hard to tell, but the penny seems to have dropped with Oliver on how to be more damaging. But this is the first time his kicking has been AFL standard for a while.

Petracca hurt factor has always been there, consistency and confidence are now through the roof though.

I’m confident Trac can do it against anyone. Oliver I’m yet to be convinced on just yet.

By my quick count (happy to accept corrections):

Players with 30 AFL games or less in round 10:
Adel (18th) 9
PA (1st) 6

Players 22 yrs or younger in round 10:
Adel: 10
PA: 8

Not a huge amount of difference.

Might have to accept you guys just didn't recruit that well or at least haven't blooded enough young players incrementally.
