It sounds like 2MP's performances do not warrant selection.I'd be optimistically just hoping for nett more goals, which is surely the only reason you'd drop Day
You can make cases for and against Sam but can you be a KPF and kick 13 goals in your last 13 games- all of them consecutive btw since Rnd 15 last year?
A goal a game -23 goals a year for a KPF ruckman is "probably" just ok if you're doing other stuff
Sam averages 0.7 goals a game over his career
I tried to think of a player from another Club who is similar.
It's actually hard.
Maybe Carlton's McGovern(1.4 goals a game career), maybe Justin Westhoff(1.1 goals avg)
There's no doubt in my mind Sam is underperforming but we have to remember he's been playing for the easybeat team of the decade-not easy being a forward
Just as a side stat 2MP averages 1.3 goals per game career average and can do everything Sam does
2MP has kicked 24 goals from last 22 games
Nothing shits me more than the when the opposition was streaming out of defence and 2MP would be putting in a piss poor half hearted trailing chase (next worse was his 1 handed marking attempts).
