At worst it's 1 more year playing the junior role to Tex before getting a year as the primary in his contract year. Possibly Tex stays on to be a genuine half coach/half year player next year and Fog gets a year and a half at it. Term is probably spot on.Two good signings. Fogarty gets a shot to really cement himself as the number 2 key forward in our set up in the post Tex world. Murphy had a good year and at worse is good coverage if McHenry gets injured/or falls apart as a prospect.
Yep, this. Because we don't ever make list management mistakes. Cop that you dimwits that think we ever have. This is the AFC, we don't make mistakes. Fancy using a list management decision to have a crack at people's opinions on players. That said, I don't mind Murphy, low ceiling, but he has games under the belt, so gets 2 years to help keep us out of the bottom 4.Cop that those Murphy doubters, obviously highly valued within the the 4 walls of the AFC. Several of Smurph's takeaways from both centre bounces and stoppages have been the cleanest and highest quality of any of our mids this season....not just a small pressure forward!!!
I think you are being extremely unfair to Rowe. He’s only played 11 AFL games abd has come from an SANFL system that doesn’t rely on defensive pressure as much as the AFL system does.Murph actually brings some forward pressure. His recent cameos in the midfield weren't too shabby either. Rowe is more skilled than Murphy but offers nothing in the way of forward pressure. I don't like either of them that much tbh. Both limited players who are just placeholders until we find our next Cameron. I prefer Murph though. I'll take an honest but limited player over a downhill skier like Rowe any day.
Nah, Murphy can play down back and have spurts in the midfield, it's unlikely, but he clearly has a higher ceiling than a small forward with limited other areas of strength. Rowe has devoted himself to footy and getting on a list and all he's amounted to is a gun SANFL level small forward. His ceiling is severely limited.Absence certainly does make the heart grow fonder.
Jimmy Rowe has a significantly higher ceiling over Lachlan Murphy. Let’s not forget that Rowe is only 21.
Rowe's forward pressure was good in the SANFL because his lack of speed and strength wasn't exposed at that level.I think you are being extremely unfair to Rowe. He’s only played 11 AFL games abd has come from an SANFL system that doesn’t rely on defensive pressure as much as the AFL system does.
if Jimmy Rowe still has the same level as defensive pressure after 30 games as he does now, your criticism of him holds far more value. However, right now I think it’s an unfair criticism of him.
He is in the team as he has some very good offensive tricks and like any young player, he is inconsistent and his inconsistency are much more identifiable when we lose and play away.
He’s not a down hill skier. That’s unfair
Yep. Rowe's skill and nous combined with Murph's speed and defensive pressure would be a pretty handy small forward.Give Rowe Murphy's speed, and you have a player with a high ceiling.
D Jars as KevinWould have been funny if they got the players to not clap and just look around with that Office style awkwardness when Murphy appeared.
If only we could..Combine them and you get a veey good quality AFL small forward
Why? I'm happy for the kid. I certainly don't bear him any ill will.
