I'm kind of a big deal on the east side

Not really. In the end of the day, whilst Walker limped over the line, he had enough quality and longevity to get there, if he does.I'm kind of with you, but maybe from a different angle. If Tex goes on to play meaningfully next year and kicks 40 goals, then good on him, he deserves the record. But if he gets the record, retires or turns up next year and can't get in the 22 then his record may look manufactured. That's not on Modra, but it's not how you want records broken. Carried to 200 games, carried to goal kicking record, gave not a yelp afterwards.
The idea of "oh that record shouldn't be broken by a lesser player" is such an odd and pointless take. If it can be broken, break it. Push the bar higher.
