My thoughts exactly. Howard is a bit of an in between key forward/ defender but Frampton is a dead set talent as far as a key forward goes. Billy really must become Charlie Dixon's apprentice up forward.
Good question but Dixon is an expensive unit so Hinkley and co probably want to give him every chance to get back into the groove. I know where you are coming from as Charlie did not get a lot of the ball last week. His body work and attack on the ball were good and he made his presence felt physically but he didn't do a lot possession wise. I think Charlie has to take some marks and kick some goals as well as provide the physical stuff. If he cannot do that over the next few weeks then I would not object to him finding more of the ball in the SANFL while Frampton and Howard get a chance to work up forward.Why is Howard feeling pressure and not Dixon?
Nothing against Howard. Love Howard.Why is Howard feeling pressure and not Dixon?
But, but, but ... some would have it that players can only develop if played in the AFL team!I know lots of us have wanted Billy in before now but I’m starting to think he’s actually developing and coming along beautifully.
As long as we don’t lose him in the meantime he’s very close to making a real impact and any time now he’ll make his way back in and maybe stay there this time
Dixon was putrid that first quarterNothing against Howard. Love Howard.
But if dixon or Howard are going to be dropped we all know it will be Howard inless dixon falls off a cliff.
All 3 have enough speed ect to be able to play together and not be to tall and cause the opposition headaches.
Off topic, but I was there the night that Jimmy joined the Boss at Hanging Rock and sang Tougher Than The Rest in that video, although he also sung it the night before there, (drove there straight after we beat Melbourne Rd 1 2013 at the MCG) and though it was a bloody strange choice of song to sing the part that Patti would sing. Bruce even had a laugh about it. But I saw Jimmy tell the story why he chose it in the video below, despite knowing a lot of other of Bruce's song and what its meant to him over the last 30 years.
