Only himself. May have kicked it, may have missed. We've missed a few in that range across 2 games.Sure, but he himself had no-one to beat. At all.
Funny thing... I had to rub my eyes and look again when I saw a couple of days ago that there were recent responses to that post. Don’t think I was being prescient in 2017... Billy was starting to find his previous form after missing 2016, and then we know what happened after that. Hopefully history doesn’t repeat again again. Funny how an ancient post could become relevant and true two years later.I assume you noticed that was a post from 2 years ago?
I don't get the point of the comparison. Theybplay completely different roles. One is a marking forward, brilliant at the one on one stuff, the other a crumber, very good at reading the ball off the big pack. They aren't in competition for the same spot IMOIt’s not just he plays well and kicks goals.
It’s the extra pressure he puts on the opposition defence. They know they have to watch him all the time.
And this is no dig at Thomas but the difference is palpable. Elliott operate at a higher level, he’s just better.
Thomas can be a good player but Elliott has it all for a small forward.
If he stays fit he’s A grade to elite. That good.
Magnificent having him back.
Just noting smaller forwards and a difference between a good one and a super one.I don't get the point of the comparison. Theybplay completely different roles.

If your point is that Elliot is a better player than JT, I don't think anyone is going to argue with that. Stephenson is too. Pendlebury is a better player than Mayne. Moore is better than Roughead.Just noting smaller forwards and a difference between a good one and a super one.
Whether they play the same role or position, they’re both smaller forwards.
No biggie, just noting one is on a different plane.
That said, if the squeeze comes for spots forward of centre, regardless of exact or different roles etc, if there is a player to miss out, it certainly won’t be Elliott.
Thomas would be the player worrying about his spot before Elliott.
(Hoskin-Elliott has to return, as an example.)
BT is the biggest flog. Bags out players then wants to do romaing BT and talk to them after the match. Surprised clubs let him do itDon’t take this the wrong way, but gee I was sick of BT going on about Moore’s hair last night. He really needs to take a look in the mirror.
