Jones is making it.But you brought up Fogarty as an example of why you need to be patient, the difference is Fogarty is a KPF, who struggled for fitness, they always take longer but you could see he had AFL quality attributes.
Jones and McHenry are smalls who have been given more opportunities than Fog. Jones has shown he has some decent attributes but we rarely see them whereas McHenry has shown he’s a trier that’s it.
Both have been in the system for 3 years and should be showing more than they are, plenty of smalls with less experience have shown they are going to make it and are actually making it.
But curious, how long do you plan on giving them before you come to the realisation that they won’t make it?
It's just his 2020 was so deplorable and embarrassing, he became a whipping boy and people are blinded with him.
McHenry? I saw some feint signs in 2021, but they have dissapeared this year, while others have shown. But if he cant put it together next year. Cut him. He's close to being a servicable squad player (still a bust for 1st round draft pick) but 23 is make or break imo. If he doesn't make himself into that squad player, just cut him and throw in someone who has the potential to be more. Honestly feel McHerny's peak is Mackay. No where near good enough for a 1st round pick, but if you cut everyone who wont be a star, you end up with a team that has the top end talent to fluke a few good wins, but not enough depth to compete in all games.
