Or the little cheap ones where they share it around in the backline for 2 minutes .Go back & ask your Brother in law how many kicks did Hurn actually have, if they didn’t include him running out of the goal square on kick outs?
That should keep him busy for a while.
How ironic the Eagles talking about staging for free kicks they were the masters at it even won them a final in Adelaide. Someone even told me they trained for it don't know how true it was but he was an Eagle. So not a opposition supporter making wild accusations (but how in the know he was i don't know)Can someone help me with some stats relating to Walters? My eagles supporting brother in law is salty about sonny getting an AA gig and reckons ‘he wouldn’t have got nearly as many goals if he didn’t,t stage.’ Anyone know how many of his goals were from free kicks?
I think everyone on here would agree Sonny plays for the frees, the only difference is that he doesn't get looked after.any way to find out how many of his 40 goals were the direct result of free kicks?
Captain is the most overrated role in afl in general. 99% of teams just pick their best player because it is little more than a feather in their cap and a few speeches.I'm super perplexed at why King and the media are crying outrage that the AA C award was treated as a best player reward, when that's what I thought it was this entire time. How else do you measure on field leadership other than leading by example.
It’s a fact they trained the technique of getting a tackle and raising your arm to make it slip high.Someone even told me they trained for it don't know how true it was but he was an Eagle. So not a opposition supporter making wild accusations (but how in the know he was i don't know)
Didn't he what! He reckons that when they found out that Hurn wasn't travelling due to an injury, the AFL then gave the captaincy to Nat Fyfe instead. Yet when Basil and Millsy questioned this with him, he tried to deflect the attention onto them for making him out to be the bad guy for revealing this information.
Did he count the votes? Why can't he ever just congratulate a worthy announcement rather than always trying to see the negative in it. The guy is a dead set tool.
Almost better if it’s true tbh. Adds another bucketful of salt to the current extreme saltiness of all their sycophantic supporters. Cry me a river bluenyellas
I claim that a Freo’s 3rd representative anyway. Practically developed him and made him the player he is. Neale just fortunate enough Brisbane have had a charmed run with injuries and form. Slotted right in and did what he was doing for Freo anyway. Not sure why he got more recognition from media at Brisbane then at Fremantle. He played a blinder year in 2016/2017 even last year tooI don't think Lachie Neale wins All Australian if he is at Fremantle this season, not because he didn't deserve it but because they knew who he was now.
Plus they finished outside the top 4 so why was Hurn snubbed? If anything Pendles should be the one that was unluckiest.I like Hurn, reckon he is just about the Eagles most important player, but think he was a bit down this year compared to last year, also missed a few games, and lucky to get in (as mentioned above Shepard probably had a better year, and Sicily stiff too). So giving the captain to a borderline player seems wrong.
Also, how the hell would anyone know if he is a good captain?
Just like being a premiership player doesn't mean you are a better player, being a premiership captain doesn't mean you are a better captain either. Only someone that has played under all of Fyfe, Pendles, Hurn etc would know, so it seems right to give it to the player that had the best year but also is a captain.
