Lovely write up that one.
I love articles like this because they remind us that players aren’t stagnant. When I read comments like “if player X is still in the team by the end of the year then we haven’t improved” it seems to preclude that chance that player X can improve. I find it interesting that we expect improvement from some “just wait til Setters has played 50 games” or “TDK with 2 years growth ..”; we accept it in others (eg. Cripps getting a running coach, Levi working on goal kicking); but we sometimes deny it as a possibility in others. Why would Gibbons be the same player at the end of the year as at the start? Why wouldn’t Polson improve across a couple of years? Not all will make it or become what we had hoped but I can’t imagine many don’t change/improve.
