Jen, didn't know you were that new to football!

Played CHF for Melbourne in the 2000's decade.
Mainly lead up - providing a target and link up further up the ground.
Not a big goal kicker but a good mark.

157 games, 120 goals.
Averaged 5 marks / game across his career.


Also a Queenslander.
He was with Pia Miller too.
I think that’s where he did his best work!

I was in and out of footy when I was a teenager. Really only got back into it fully 2009/2010 (minus some games I went to when I lived in Adelaide for a bit), and in the past I never really thought about opposition players too much lol

Brad Miller was rated highly as a development coach when he took the GWS reserves to a NEAFL premiership in 2016 and that team included future AFL players like Harrison Himmelberg, Jeremy Finlayson, Matt Flynn, James Stewart and Matt Kennedy. So I think Miller could be a really great acquisition for us and it's always nice to bring in another Queenslander but we sure do seem to be going after a lot of ex-GWS people:

GWS tenures
Brad Miller (NEAFL coach/assistant coach - forwards): 2016-2020
Wayne Campbell (general manager of football): 2016-2019
Craig Cameron (list manager): 2016-2017

Look at the Giants' results in those years:

2016: 16-6/4th/prelim final
2017: 14-6-2/4th/prelim final
2018: 13-8-1/7th/qualifying final
2019: 13-9/6th/grand final
2020: 8-9/10th

Undoubtedly their most successful period between 2016-2019 and our three guys were there in important roles for most of those years. Home and away - 64 wins, 3 draws and 38 losses. Finals - 6 wins and 5 losses. That's an impressive run of home and away results and I know a 6-5 finals record doesn't sound great but it's very difficult to put together a winning finals record over multiple years unless you're winning flags. Just look at Brisbane's 1-5 finals record over the last three years and they've finished 2nd, 2nd and 4th in those seasons. So a run of finals appearances with 6 wins and 5 losses including a grand final, two prelim finals and a qualifying final is actually really good.

Let's just hope for our sake that we've found the winning formula and 2022 is the year we finally realise our potential!

Really hope Miller gets the forward line playing to its strengths and keeping it open.
If u leave King or Rankine one out with there opponents 90% of the time will be a goal.

our forward line is always a kamikaze hot contested mess.
Not often I agree with you Ben, but you have nailed it.....couldn't agree more...."kamikaze hot contested mess"....
