    Yep, he had a point too, I guess in the same way Trevor Chappell did. Nowhere in the rules did it say you have to wait for the ball to start its descent before tapping it, it was simply "after it's bounced".

    Nailed it. Which is what’s so ******* frustrating.

    He’s talented. Hugely fit. Fairly mobile. Can roost a goal. But he’s got no tough footballer instincts. He should write “don’t be soft” on his wrists to remind himself.

    It's almost like he watches too much American sport. I love the NFL and the MLB (and somewhat enjoy the NBA), but to me it's more "spectacle" than heart-and-soul like footy.

    Those other sports have a smaller number of important players on the field. To do well you need to have the physical attributes, be fit enough, and be well trained. But then it's more about "executing" your skills.

    You can't just do that in our sport. Effort (eventually) beats execution. Repeated and consistent effort is something that he still hasn't worked out or is perhaps simply unable to do.

    An additional one maybe, I'd be very happy to ship Mackay off for a 3rd rounder.

    Perish the thought that criticism could be merited; heaven forbid making a substantive defence of him either

    If you force your employer into a lucrative 6 year deal with threat to leave, you are probably going to attract some scrutiny when you under perform.

    No need for all the personal vitriol but jeez, people are entitled to be pissed off.

    JJ just finished up on Fiveaa

    Gave a pretty honest account of the last week I thought. Didn't really elaborate on his GF performance but I guess its too raw still.

    Said he knows nothing about the senior leadership group asking Don not to play Lever but admits the players are collectively 'spewing' that he is leaving (I get the impression he and Lever aren't mates either). He did say however that he and Charlie are really close and he knows nothing about him wanting to leave.

    Finished up by saying he has only seen the social media comments about him in the last day or so and 'sees it for what it is'

    What do you mean scrambling. After Saturdays game we now have plenty of whipping boys to choose from.

    Big Jenko sounded quite upbeat but I suppose it helps when you know you are going to be gifted $2 mill to do bugger all. Lucky his massive ego prevents him from seeing that 99% of the football world think he's a hack.

    Jenkins had a poor game, he acknowledged that on 5AA. He made a pretty honest assessment of the GF game and the situation regarding Lever and Cameron. I don't mind listening to him talk to be honest. Seems like a pretty laid back kind of guy.
    If only he can use his big frame and start hurting a few opposition defenders next year, all will be forgiven!

    Watch a YouTube of one of the grand finals with Norwood in it ‘78 maybe early eighties can’t remember. I recon Greg Turnbull?? was doing this a lot, virtually taking the ball out of the umpires hands.

    The 'smothering' of bounces was outlawed way back about then.

    Coaches just need to get him to act a bit more like Tarzan and do more crashing and bashing. In fact the coaches need to instill more mongrel into the whole team.

    Don't care if he plays like Jane and Kick 50- 60 plus goals, its better than playing Tarzan and Kicking 30 to 40 goals,

    True, but what if playing like Tarzan helped him kick 60-70 plus goals?

    For me next season is all about how he plays. If he bashes and crashes and kicks 35 goals, with Gov picking up the other 15-20 then we will be a better side.

    Got my doubts though.

    Strongly disagree.

    I'll take Tarzan kicking 40 goals because he's likely creating another 40 with his toughness.

    As opposed to Jane who might kick 60 but lets the opposition rebound for 20 against us because of his softness.

    Jenkins needs to get himself super fit. He is not going to be a marking KPF as long as his arse points to tbe ground What he could do though is play a role similar to Tom Lynch if he was fit enough.
