That's actually damning for Clark lol and hurts your argument.
Zuthrie is seen by many as a waste of list spot while Clark seen as a budding young cats star in the making.
Zuthrie has had numerous stat less quarters. Plays a more dour role which prioritises getting the footy less yet most statistical categories don't see Clark winning them by heaps. Re-inforcing the argument that Clark is a little overhyped on here, and deserving of his spot outside our best side.
But this comes back to fan naivety. Fans seemingly have it in their heads that we can just on a whim change how we play, change our structures and nothing will be adversely affected. We saw that without Cameron as being a false premise, we had set ourselves up for a structure with Cameron and it looked disjointed in his absence. It is the same reason why guys screaming from their couches, and ultimately on here on game day for "Plan B" doesn't often happen. Clubs set up their sides, structures, list management around a nominal notion of how they want to play, and the players they need to execute that. Hard to turn around 5 minutes into the 3rd and ask them to disregard it for a completely foreign game plan.
As such, want to make it clear (CC: STPer18 ) that I have now got dwindling faith that Z.Guthrie will become a good AFL footballer, but alas, this is the structure we have adopted, so we should not be surprised or outraged that Zuthrie may be named in a couple hours time. 1 Def out. Possibly 1 Def in.
Kolo for Clark is not like for like, even if it becomes Kolo for Clark via Tuohy.
Zuthrie has been named in the VFL team.
At best he'll be in for a late change or medical sub.
At the moment it seems as though the changes will be
In Clark & Narkle
Out O'Connor & Kolo.
