Sometimes stats are fine. But you don't understand the sport if you can't see that Hill is a shitload better a kick than Langdon.
At least he’ll bring us some of that desperately needed outside running both ways. He’s a super strong runner and will work defensively.

He’s also 3 or 4 years younger than Hill so hopefully still some improvement to come.

But yes, would have rather taken Hill if he wasn’t double the price.

Langdon has a role to play for us. No one is disputing that. But it should be in a largely defensive capacity.
Needs to go both ways. Yes, we need defensive runners but we also need guys to bust a gut and get into space to provide an option. I'm presuming that's what he does to get that 6 odd marks per game average, so we need that just as much as someone who'll track their man back.

We need guys on the outside for when we win contested ball - and we also need wide runners so that we can actually switch the play and not get smashed on the rebound when the opposition switch the play.
