hope this doesnt mean our chances this year are down the toilet
Don't think Ben get's called Feathers if that's what you mean.I wonder how his brother’s developing physically. If Harry’s ahead of him that’d be testament to AR and our system.
The parts of that I like are the Matt Owies and Mitch McGovern writeups. If Owies can come in as a threatening forward pocket and kick 1-2 goals a game whilst laying 3-5 tackles, that's almost enough to unseat Eddie by himself.
"With Martin set to tag-team through the midfield and forward line this year alongside high-priced off-season recruit Zac Williams"
"Martin is keen to push more into the midfield this year, looking at a 50-50 split along with former Giants defender, Williams, who will have a different role at Carlton."
Only the 2 arcs I see. Might be different to the 2 I was suggesting, but that's beside the point .The poster boy for the AFL’s colossal pay cuts last year says the Blues are “desperate” to end their eight-year finals drought, having learned plenty from a string of near-misses in 2020.www.theage.com.au
Think you are still missing the point. As suggested some time ago, Williams has been dangerous when resting forward, despite not spending much time there.Only the 2 arcs I see. Might be different to the 2 I was suggesting, but that's beside the point .
The following (I know it's only Champion Data) suggests we have got a player who is elite in defence (and midfield, albeit from a smaller sample). Why would we have him play a significant chunk (50% according to Martin) of his TOG where he has shown he is only average? With the rule changes he is way better off IMO delivering the ball inside 50, rather than being on the receiving end.

The shared arrangement makes perfect sense from Martin's perspective, but doesn't utilise William's assets to our best advantage IMO.
Charlie in DT’s line-up is the FF. Played better footy closer to goal & commented as such from the coach.Even if he does somehow make it back onto the field, will he have the same mobility as before? Doubtful I would say, but maybe he will just play out of the goal square and use his big body to push opposition guys out the way like he did against the W.B. when he kicked 7. I just hope his banged up knee won`t stop him showing off his talent, and I would imagine Carlton would be happier for him to just hang around inside the 50 metre arc anyway, as he copped a few injuries roaming further up the ground!!! It would be really great to see him playing again even though he may have to adjust his playing style somehow, but Russell should be a big help with that!!!
