Disagree, feel like if he'd been drafted at the end of 2017, he'd have blazed a trail through the AFL.

It looks like someone got in his head during the 2018 pre-season about what healthy eating and training consists of, and basically undid all of his good work. Went from being a bonafide midfielder to looking like a career half-forward.

I know they've ousted Cordy up there, but whoever replaced him is equally as incompetent, and has only compounded the issue.
Jim, Rankine went from a lean Daniel Rioli/ McGrath type as a 17 year old, to being a lazy, conditional 10 KG overweight draftee. Has more Xfactor in pinky finger than both of those players, yet has no where near the work ethic

I hope it clicks for him soon or else he will end up a wasted talent

Smart move, running out in a guernsey that's all red on the back with white numbers......against Sydney.

:huh:

Commercialised bullshit. Any financial gain is going to be well and truly offset by the ill-will generated amongst their supporter base.

Better be a one-off from a debacle of a club. If we run out dressed like Captain America at some point I'm going to lose my shit.

Don't assume it's bad habits, half the first world is medically obese despite having access to government guidelines, so at some point you need to question some of the information being provided, not just their willpower.

At some stage, an individual needs to take ownership

Just sayin

It's not as simple as that, but an environment where they feel like they can speak up about an issue would certainly be welcomed.

I mean if you have genuine character concerns beyond this, just flag that without going into specifics, but you'd be surprised how and why dietary habits can be poor, with or without forceful guidelines and club directives.

Not sure what issue you might be implying and diet has nothing to do with a mindset of work ethics

Rankine is conditional, lazy and has gotten away with playing just on pure talent, which I flagged before the draft

Has nothing to do with anyone or anything else apart from his own lack of discipline.

Not only is it ugly its actually very phallic too. I'm not sure Id want to run out in a jumper that makes you look like you have genitalia hanging from your chin.
If it’s ok for a tv news presenter it’s ok for anyone
