Your argument is so outdated and suited to a discussion on football in the 1980s. Football these days is about entries and retaining the ball inside 50 because teams zone back providing limited opportunities for one on ones. With your logic a forward line of six Dan menzels should do the trick. Whether you like to accept it or not, football is a system based game now. There a very few traditional positions on the ground. Geelong’s gameplan is based on possession from back half, and forward half turnovers. A prelim and a GF since we acquired Dalhaus and Rohan would suggest we got it right.am i in topsy turvey world. A forwards main job is to create goals From foward entries. Its not to tackle players who have got the ball from a failed foward entry. a foward has to fail his main goal first in order to be in a position to get a foward defensive tackle.
It is not a success replacing a player who kicks 2 goals a game with 2 tackles and replacing them with someone who has 4 tackles a game and 0.5 goals. Its goal scoreboard that determines winners of football games. Not tackle leaderboards.
