He's also 24 early next year. He's had at least three AFL preseasons incl at St Kilda so it's not as if he's Malcolm Karpany.
I don't really get your style v no-style point. Swan was a hugely hyped marquee player in the late 00s despite having a weird running style. What's that got to do with Hutch?
The Masten preseason threads are a joke more than anything else. Maybe I don't pay attention to the fan boy stuff as much as you.
I don't think it's got anything to do with style, it's just that Hutchings doesn't do anything extraordinarily well, either at AFL or WAFL level. He's consistent, predictable and vanilla. That's what people find unappealing - it's more fun to latch on to players with a weapon or two with the hope they'll eventually correct their weaknesses and turn into guns.
I think most people have decided now that Masten and Selwood won't, and so I don't think you'll see too many fanbois over those two from now on.

So I guess this wasn't you saying he doesn't do anything well at AFL or WAFL level? If he can't do anything well at WAFL level, how the hell did he win the medal for BOG in the WAFL a Grand Final? How did he he poll so well in the Sandover last year despite missing quite a few games in the AFL?
