Then why bother stating it? If looking out of your depth after 2 games is common for almost all key forwards, then it means nothing. If they look out of their depth after 50 games, then it is a reason for concern and discussion.Two contradictory statements. You can say a player looks out of his depth in two games, it's factual. Does it mean they always will be? no.
It's funny, when I was saying how quickly Hogan would make an impact in the AFL, because he'd had 3 preseasons, was already a beast with speed and a great engine and that he rag-dolled men as an 18 year old on his way to a B&F at Casey, all I got was posters like MoC saying how premature I was and that "he hasn't even played AFL".And a whole extra year on an afl list, a much longer time with his team and gameplan...i'd say they are all fairly relevant, especially seeing that just two weeks ago Boyd kicked 3 goals, had 14 touches and 6 marks against the hawks.
But ultimately the issue is why is everyone obsessed with comparing young players? they are very different players and both have plenty of time to improve
