As a footballer id go Hogan, on potential Boyd.

Daniher is weird. He's just so narrow through the hips that his agility and lateral strength might not ever be there. Looks good in straight lines and on the lead. I think he'll have to be a second ruck, rather than a dedicated KPF. :confused:

Be honest. How many times have you seen McBean play?

VFL stats are known for being no where near accurate. They've gotten the goal kickers wrong on occasion so I'm not sure how you can quote a statistic like goal assists. McBean is a nice prospect but he won't be included in these polls until he shows something at AFL level because he didn't show a lot as a junior.

Hurley's overpaid because both GWS and GC offered him a truck load of money so Essendon had to come to the party or lose him
I've gone to watch the Coburg Tigers play 6 times this year, one game where he kicked 4 goals in a half and dominated (might I add the Coburg Tigers are an absolute disgrace, so that says something).

McBean hasn't played an AFL game to show anything yet, just saying he's developing rather nicely and we'll be comparing McBean with Daniher for years to come.

Hurley's overpaid because your supporter base can be a poison. The overkill of his abilities got to his head and his manager capitalised on his hype. Keep it on the low down next time, if you're going to shout from the rooftops someone is amazing, guess what? Your rivals aren't going to applaud you, they'll find a way to rape you up the bunghole. Should have just lost him honestly.

Joe Daniher has better AFL first year possession and mark stats than the following list of players:

Lance Franklin
Jarryd Roughead
Nick Riewoldt
Jack Riewoldt
Jeremy Cameron
Travis Cloke
Josh Kennedy
Drew Petrie
Matthey Pavlich
Jonathon Brown
Tom Hawkins
Kurt Tippet
I'm sure Rhys Palmer had a better first year than most of these players:

Scott Pendlebury
Dane Swan
Kieren Jack
Ryan Griffen
Gary Ablett
Nathan Fyfe
Patrick Dangerfield
Trent Cotchin

This point is bullshit and hypocritical. Hurley was pumped up by the whole AFL community not just Essendon supporters and every thread about Patton/Boyd/Daniher is filled with Richmond supporters like yourselves talking up McBean who fell to pick 36 for a reason.

What do narrow hips have to do with agility? Buddy has narrow hips and is one of if not the most agile key forward in the AFL.

What happened with him tho? Why'd he play so few games? I remember when he finally debuted he play 2/3 in a row and then vanished for weeks
Had some niggles and TRB decided to give Gumby a go for a few weeks. Then Hurley, Ryder and TBell all came into the side at once, which pushed him out.

Liam McBean out performed Joe Danniher in the VFL.

McBean kicked 37 goals in 14 games and gained 10kgs in one year, 202cms tall.

Watch this space...
Funny that, Daniher out performed McBean at AFL level:p

When McBean learns how to mark a footy we will talk.

Hogan
15 games
63 marks
36 contested marks

Daniher
12 games
85 marks
35 contested marks

Mcbean
14 games
59 marks
14 contested

clearly anyone who watched the VFL games this season could see Daniher and Hogan often being doubled and tripled teamed.
hence why Daniher and Hogan had to take so many contested marks.

Matthey Pavlich 18
Jonathon Brown 13
Tom Hawkins 9
Kurt Tippet 19 (well, didn't play in his real first year)

I can't be bothered looking it up. How many games did they play year 1. That certainly be a factor as young players can fade easily in year 1.
Here you go. But generally first years don't mean much for key forwards..

Jeremy Cameron would be the clear no.1 of any young key forward.

Who would I take of this group? Nothing in it. Such an even group. You could argue these young fellas in any order.

1. Thomas Boyd (By process of elimination has the least questionmarks and as such is my no.1 by default)
2. Jesse Hogan (Ready to go and will have the most immediate impact of the group. Only rate him beyond Boyd due to below average set shot goalkicking and being smaller)
3. Jonathon Patton (Coming off an ACL. Would be higher if not for this)
4. Joe Daniher (Lowest only due to poor set shot goalkicking)

You'd happily build with any of these though. If things go right they can all be franchise key forward you can build around.

Daniher needs to go to the GYM, but could be anything

Did you go to the W33 school for defending over rated scrawny KPF??

Seems like every position players are just getting taller and taller, hell Jobe Watson would have been a ruck in Pratts days, Kpp in the late 80s early 90s, now just a midfielder.

He came in as a scrawny 83k 202cm ruck prospect. His work ethic is brilliant, he weighs in at 95kgs after one year and dominated at VFL level.

Kicked more goals, took more marks, had more goal assists than Joe Danniher and he is at the same age as Joe, so to me, McBean (who was when first drafted called McBeanPole) will be the player that people are expecting Danniher will be.
Nice stats. I guess McBean would beat Daniher in most total statistical areas, considering he played an extra two VFL games and all... because Daniher actually played AFL football this season.

I don't know where you got your stats but according to SportingPulse, Daniher blew McBean out of the water with 85 total marks (seven per game) to 59 (four per game). But yes, those extra 0.2 goals per game that McBean kicks shows he deserves to rated as good or better than one of the best kids to come through the TAC Cup system.

Speaking of overrated, a 2nd rounder for Shaun Hampson...
