Opinion Hurn... is he the right guy for captain?

Discussion in 'West Coast Eagles' started by QS, Jul 30, 2016.

Put it out there
?

Is Hurn the right guy for captain?

  1. Yes, he is the best because he is a good guy and he has receding hair.

  2. No, let him back off the leash to be a beast like Brock Lesnar.

Results are only viewable after voting.

    I thought the same about Glass - but from all accounts he was outstanding as a leader and has since picked up 'leadership roles' at other clubs, namely Adelaide and now Hawthorn (?)

    Maybe there is something we cannot see.

    I do remember when Kennedy, Hurn and Priddis (?) were reportedly & supposedly auditioning for the role of Capt that Hurn seemed to be far more demonstrative on the field than the other candidates.

    As you can see, not just home games. I was a little disturbed when she wanted to film the shenanigans so you and your other relatives could watch ;)

    Surprised there hasn't been more on his contract extension. I for one think it's warranted. Should stay on for one more year to help guide Shuey through his first season as skipper.

    One thing about glass though is we didn’t feel this way after 3 years! After year 1-2 we were convinced he was out and out the best man for it.

    I can see Shuey going on as captain for 3-4 years easily.

    Fair enough.

    No way imo, if he gets the captaincy next season (with Bunga going on in 19 maybe not likely) he will be 29 mid year.

    I am hoping Duggan has an absolute break out year cements himself in the side with some genuine A grade games and then if not not year the year after make him skipper :).

    Talking about on field leadership, I couldn't help but notice Bunga fairly close to Boots as he went back.

    Nah i agree with Eaglespur, i think Shuey misses out now unless he's filling in.

    Hurn will get voted in next season ("because Bunga derrr derrrr the boiz love Bunga...") and by the time Hurn is ready to hang up the boots, Duggan would have had another 2 seasons of maturity in the AFL to be the young successor we originally wanted.
