Shouldn't be in doubt at this point. Clearly had a better year than any KPF in the comp bar Hawkins. Those two are a pretty obvious FF and CHF.
I think he's had at least as good a year as Hawkins as well. I mean, that night Hawkins kicked 6 isolated against Clurey in the goal square, our man probably would've kicked 12 in that situation.

No he probably would have kicked 6.6. Love the big guy and what he does week in week out against multiple defenders is amazing but I cringe at how much he leans back when he kicks at goal. Can't they fit him with a back brace or something? He does so much right and lets himself down by missing those gettable shots.

Still, another good story like McKenzie of a player who got their body right and smashed it all year and is now in the AA squad and likely the AA team. Hope he can stay in that condition for a couple of more good years yet.

Congrats on becoming an All Australian King Charlie! I've been a little critical of him in recent years, but only because I knew he was capable of reaching the level he's reached this year. He just needed to get his body right and maybe even more importantly get his mind right - now that he's done that, he's close to unstoppable.

One of these things is not like the other...
Disclaimer:
I love Dicko, and was in his corner from day 1 ... repaying the club & supporters in spades now
Same with Rocky, needs to bring the same next year tho
Glad to trade on the three Port boys, wish them well, but they werent fitting in. We nailed the timing on this trade - finally!
On Hinkley - Happy if he moves on. Has had a great year, & I think he is the best player-connected coach in the league ATM, but his flaws are stark, & needs the quality of assistants we currently have to compensate.
