Correct

Tex leads to spots where it would be easy for him to mark the ball rather than where the player can kick it / will kick it

He actively avoids going where an under pressure dump kick is likely to go.

It's why Murphy and Betts so often end up under high balls. They read the play, know where it's going and are prepared to compete.

It would be nice to have more skillful mids who can create their own time and space plus find a leading forward in a congested F50 in a tight pocket of space. But these Pendlebury, Josh Kelly types are a rare breed.
This is one of the dumbest things youve ever said.

Wish we had Charlie Cameron to line up next to him. Massive stuff up by our club over paying preferring to have bog average players like Douglas, Otten, Mackay, Knight, Gibson instead cost us going forward.
As others pointed out, this makes no sense. We used pick 12 on Fogarty.

Your post reads like somebody really wanted to have a go at a bunch of players without any regard to the context of the thread. (not saying I disagree with you though)

Yep, the mistake was not replacing Cameron in the draft. Willie Rioli would have been perfect.

It's absolutely bang on correct

There's a reason Murphy and Betts stand under the high balls.

It's because Walker and Jenkins have vacated the premesis.
1) We often structure up so Murphy is the deepest forward so he’s there for the bomb, thank Hart for that brainwave
2) We often ignore Tex’s leads to bomb over his head to Murphy, that’s on our dumb players
3) Tex plays as a CHF so he’s often up the ground

I think this pre-supposes that our forwards are in our forward 50 when movements begin, which is not always the case.

Betts and Murphy get caught under the high balls because all of our entries are high balls, and because they're the first ones back into the 50 after we've cleared our forward line to get numbers up to the contest up the ground.

They move hard to get back, end up being the target, and because we've had no forwards or structure in place for so long whilst we've scrambled we end up bombing hurriedly to them often in 2 on 1 situations.

They're not under the entries when we've trapped the ball for repeat bomb entries.

*Tex makes a lead and gets separation on his opponent... midfielders proceed to bomb the ball over his head.

Drugs are bad Mackay: "Why is Tex out of position?".

Just on Fog making the Team of the Week and missing out on Rising Star nomination, are the judges of these awards different people or are they the same clowns?

I thought Kane Cornea did the team of the week on AFL.com.

The rising star I don’t know, but I noticed none of the commentators went on about his game too much when announcing his nomination.

We would've lost Cameron regardless sadly, but we would've had picks.

Just on Charlie though, where would we be if we had him ?? Last year he had injury issues of his own but this year hes on fire. Brisbane game aside, how many would we have won with him.... given our poor forward structure and delivery.

Was so inconsistent for us. Don’t know if its natural maturing process, or our poor development.

Given his obvious disdain for the club I imagine it’s the latter.

Disdain? Wasn't there a few interview that he mention about his fondness of the club? From all reports, his girlfriend wanted to move back to Brisbane, wasn't it.

No I’m pretty sure his interview just before our game up there this year left little doubt about his feelings towards AFC and / or Pyke.

Are you talking about these comments about his feeling towards the coaches, and not the club.
