    This needs a good ol bump :)

    Taller than Lockett and Dunstall?

    Still just a kid?

    Humble and loyal?

    Everything in my brain says he will be worth the wait.... and that's ova!

    Good luck out there fella!


    And how's this photo!

    Can't knock that Vic fella for effort, but holy smokes! Apparently this mark won the West Aussie boys the game after slotting the goal?

    Think so but he's upped the meth and Bundy intake.
    Lyon said he's not overly concerned cos the bloke's a natural athlete.

    It scares me when the word athlete is used when discussing a footballer.

    To me, the best way to describe Cam, is that he is a natural footballer.

    "it’s definitely not a one-man team at all"

    Hopefully this means they're scrapping the 'kick to to x' forward attack strategy.

    However it does sound like a lot of posters are worried they might change it to the 'kick it as far into the 50 as possible' strategy, which isn't much better.

    Cam is showing strong signs he will be a very good footballer. Moves and leads well, great with the ground ball. I hope he starts clunking his marks with regularity soon though.

    He is definitely the chosen one. Born on the day Freo played their first ever game. Grew up idolising players like Pav. Now plays for us and you can tell he absolutely loves it. Will be a star for us. He's home now.

    Imagine how slotting the winning goal for us felt to a guy like Cam.

    He's going to string it all together in the very near future and tear a team apart. He just leads so well and knows what to do. This kid has some 8 goal games in him for sure.

    It was hard to know what to expect with CMac. We know he's got talent, but to be out of the top level for so long, it's almost like he's starting again which is something that I forget.

    With that in mind you've got to be stoked with his start. There's lots that he can work on, but you can see he knows how to play the game. A few weeks in and I reckon we'll really see it come together even more.

    The most exciting thing about Cam growing in stature is Apeness can eventually come in (or Tabs) and focus on being the second tall. Cam has so much more room to improve and each game you just see his hunger and desire grow. His confidence is lifting and that goal that got us the win may just be the moment that really gets him going.

    On that last goal, I'm just glad he wore his size 12s not his regular 11's - there wasn't a lot of leather on that kick from my view of it.

    Absolute smarts to be available for that goal too. Could've easily had a fly at it, but summed it up that there were enough flying.

    My new fav player. So many cult figure qualities. We look deadly when he is in the action at CHF.

    If there is a pack, his best work is outside of the pack chasing the loose ball, not contesting. Does it repeatedly to great effect.

    But if we play no monster tall forward or 2nd ruck, the chance that ball can give us is probably marked by the other teams gorilla sized defender.

    I use to think that but Crozier, Mundy, Fyfe, Kersten have all crashed packs. We are unpredictable.

    Got off to a good start, but will have to put together a fair number of "spectator woowee" games before he gets to Clive status.

    Cam is going ok.
