I'm really starting to wonder if he's a big part of our problem.Ahhh Tabs.
Anyone else get frustrated with his constant “kick it long” hand gestures? player-with-ball bombs it long inside 50 only for it to get intercept marked.
Then everyone on bigfooty is like “Why do we always kick it long?! Lower the eyes and sack David Hale! Fuccccccckkk!
He's obviously turned into a pretty decent player who consistently kicks goals, but as our main target up forward he either does what you were saying or consistently leads out to the pocket. Seriously, how many times do you see him lead wide compared to straight up the middle?
And watching Daniher today I suddenly had an epiphany why Tabs standing behind his man gesturing to kick it over the top is so frustrating... he can't jump! Have you ever seen Tabs get more than 30cm off the ground or launch off someone's back like Daniher did to Cox today? Why consistently motion for it over the back when you can't jump over the top of the defender pushing back into you?
I'm not saying get rid of Tabs or anything stupid like that, but we really need a lead at the boot forward to straighten us back up and make us less Tab conscious. Get Treacy back in the team!
