I’m hoping he becomes more like a Robbie Gray type.

That would be a great outcome! I hope you’re right. But Gray strikes me as a whole lot smarter that our Jordie and consequently more likely to get the most out of himself more often. Anyway, here’s hoping!

Gray was average until he did his ACL. That forced a level of professionalism onto him

Im sure the CFC board wont want to die wondering if a different coach could get the best of someone like DeGoey.

These players that might be dormant volcanoes just needing a different coaching environment and message along with different advice must give some leaning towards going for a different coach at the end of the year.

Martin could be a different player if not for people in the coaching ranks.

PieBeast you can laugh all you want. He had never won a BNF or been an All Australian and was 7 years into his career. He had only won Ports goal kicking once in 2011 a side that finished second bottom. Funny his first 3 full seasons post his knee reco he won 3 BNFs and was all Australian 4 times in a 6 year period.

He'll never be a Martin but he has attributes and skills that are sadly wasted, very frustrating player.
The very first statement he made after being drafted was public and direct to Bucks and I quote . . . "I will not let you down".
It's a criminal waste of talent.

Very hard to argue with the assessments of McLure and Matthews in particular. JDG lacks the tank and grit to play midfield. The further from goal he is played, the smaller his impact.

Yet another player being played out of position by our master coaches and over-paid by our list managers.

I'm not disputing that Degoey needs a rocket up his clacker. But these things should not be leaked and played out in the media. The person (s) who have leaked this info don't have the club's best interests at heart. Who in our club witnesses something sensitive like Degoey getting savaged by teammates and goes and tells all to the media???? Find out who leaked it and fire them!!
More generally, it's not really DeGoey's fault he was touted as the next Dusty Martyn.

Don’t wanna really defend Jordy as he has his deficiencies (inconsistency, stamina and 2-3 efforts etc).
However I will just say, he was put on a pedestal for his earlier unproven sheer potential and everybody within the afl fraternity went on a circle jerk.
As in life, we the supporters, the media and everybody in general are quick to cut people down to size.
Just hope he can find a way to maximise his obvious talent
