They do seem to be fast tracking him.

I was actually thinking that during the game. Unfortunately Griffin is cooked and won't be able to repeat his 2013 efforts and Clarke/Apeness remain in the mysterious injury basket. I think we should definitely be getting in this blokes ear however I reckon his stocks will rise quite significantly as the #1 ruckman this year so we won't get him as cheap as he'd be right now.
One year too early for me. Ruck and key posts require a very mature body strength.
Spencer is an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season.
It doesn't just give us the shits, it would make most fans grumpy as the outcome is so variable and get's the "bloody umps" sorta comments. Maybe we need a change.org petition to the AwFuL basically quoting Masai to them directly as a litmus test for rule changes. Bags not organising, I can't organise a sausage at a barbeque.
The Demons will want to keep him as backup, but jeepers, that was a damned good effort for a 2nd fiddle ruckman. Hell, I'd be happy with him as a forward/ruck given his 2 goals and indomnitable presence up forward, but I suppose 1 swallow doesn't make a summer and I've only seen him in that 1 game.
The Melbourne board all rate him highly. A few times last year they wanted him to get games purely because of his potential. I reckon he'll do pretty well as a first string forward when the big guy is injured ala Clarke/Griffin in 2013.
I think he would be like a taller Mundy without the ground game if played as a forward, the key defenders can stand off him and still beat him to the ball.
What a great choice our players made for captain this year. Love the Fyfe and also how well Dave is playing without the pressure of Captaincy.
Yeah 100% correct and is a real testimony to the character of both those players. It has given Fyfe a wonderful on-field role model/mentor in self-less teamwork and leadership if he ever needed one. It is early days but seems like the perfect transition.
Fyfe put his body on the line a few times last game to rectify a mistake, you didn't have to know who the captain was before the game to know him by the end of the match.
you may well be right but how well did that work out for him...
So I've now re-watched our 8 goal to zip patch in that game for the fifth time. Not getting old.
Take your point but oddly enough the commentators were somewhat bemused and drew negative inferences. We lost 140 meters but his actions were highlighted. Too much of that would tend to make them much less liable to repeat that performance.
My 2c anyway
edit: I'll add to that, the inconsistent HTB decisions drew a l;ot of comment as did the stupid deliberate decision against Kersten in the final minutes. The umpiring in this game drew a lot of post game negative comments and you can be sure the AFL is getting in their ear about it. They do not like any negative commentary
Certainly some strange ones and not in our favour..
We play ripper in extended patches and that's got us the wins. Still drop away and can't stop the opposition gaining momentum extremely well when they get a run on but there's a lot to like. If they can keep it up and progress, we are definitely on a good path.
I want more enemies ...those who agree with me I cast you aside ...your visual weakness hurts my eyes.
In the spirit of Bushie .....bring it.
