    Reckon if was just a sublax based on a pre-existing injurty, which if not too severe if managable. He will most likely have an operation on his shoulder at the end of the season

    Reminds me of a hungry, tenacious young Matt deBoer.

    Maybe it was a combination of wishful thinking and too much mid strength but I swear last week that some of the Essendon players were jibing at hitting contests full on when he was in front of him. Reputation has got around already.

    I've been thinking about the De Boer comparison and it doesn't really go that far. Both really hard at the body and immovable in a contest, otherwise:
    Brady: Much better ball carrier and a longer kick both in the field and for goal.
    De Boer: Gets a lot more of it and much better in the air.

    Also I reckon Brady kind of likes hurting people (a bit), whereas it was 100% incidental with Da Pig.

    Anyway been surprised by just how good Grey's decision making has been by hand and foot, and particularly his agility + some of the little shimmies and dummies he is capable of (the sort thing you associate with class imo). If he can learn to get a bit more of it and / or a few crumbing tricks (and hence kick a few more goals) we'll have a seriously damaging player.

    Not until later into his career re: being an accumulator. In fact, he never really was a consistent ball winner in the AFL level tbh. Early days he used to play purely as a pressure forward and make people crap themselves with his footsteps, hence the comparison. The kicking comparison is probably warranted though. deBoer came to terms with his kicking limitations, eventually.

    Love how tough Brady is. Him, Walters and Ballas are going to be an awesome compo.

    Ballas can ster up the opposition, Brady brings the pain and Walters kicks the goal.

    His repeated chase and pressure of three (or was it four) Richmond players before getting Cotchin HTB was brilliant. Had to bring in my footy loving 11 year old to show him a replay of what sort of pressure can be applied if you are desperate enough.
