Play in a simulated football league - find great movies and TV shows - play Werewolf - play video games (try our Minecraft server) - argue about politics - listen to music - keep up with science news - play board games - just gasbag - discuss true crime - and so much more.
Aaron Keating played in a premiership too.You think Tom Liberatore, premiership player and best n fairest winner is only playing AFL because of his father?
That’s not a clever opinion
Couldn't agree more.Look we are all into bashing the club currently but this is way off the mark.
For all we know the club said "right Jackson, you're on the very edge of our list. We will give you 12 months to show us you deserve a spot"
Guess what, he didn't. Again, we made the error, big deal. The hysterics on this are just that, hysterical.
Everyone passed on Pav in his first year? That doesn't mean no one thought he was any good. That meant, given the draft rules of the time related to 17 year olds, that he was not regarded as a top 16 pick.You cant trot out that "no one else drafted him so that proves he isnt any good" line.
Everyone passed on Pav in his first year. No one wanted Kelly until he was older and Geelong took a punt etc etc etc. I could write a hundred examples of where recruiters get it totally wrong.
Did you think the club said to Edwards "sorry Tyson, we'd love to keep your son on this list but Macca says no?" Or is it possible that Tyson has carried a massive chip on his shoulder for many years and views everything through a certain lens?Tyson was angry because Jackson was only given one year as rookie.
His issue with the club isnt just over Jackson, but over how the club pushed him aside to keep in good with Macca.
And Luke is a much better prospect than Jackson was.
To think anything other than this is a bulls up by the club is stupid.
Yes...very true. He looks after what goes into his body more than any other 18 yr old would. And is a meticulous preparer. I knew the boy well when he was younger. A super kid with a very measured head on his shoulders. He still believes he can make it, which is a credit to his tenacity.Think it is a sad situation, both with him and Jarman. As a club, we are keen to establish history and father son picks gives us another part of history, the sad part is they were both not quite good enough to play AFL. We saw some improvement in Jars and hoped he could build on that so he got his second year but any doubts we had on Jackson didn't dissipate through the year and worse for us, the kid probably busted a gut trying to get to the next level but he just doesn't have it in him.
Twice in 14 games according to the SANFL Macca's League stats site, Best players supplied by the clubs.Yes...very true. He looks after what goes into his body more than any other 18 yr old would. And is a meticulous preparer. I knew the boy well when he was younger. A super kid with a very measured head on his shoulders. He still believes he can make it, which is a credit to his tenacity.
If you look at his games in the SANFL early last year he was in the best players half a dozen or so times. He's a smooth mover and excellent disposer of the footy. Unfortunately, he's extremely light and not quick. Traits that will end an AFL career before they start. He copped an injury last year and never got back.
and yet Jake Kelly and Hartigan are in our best 22, and according to the coaches David Mackay is in the running for our Team of the Century.Half way towards the mid-season draft and 50 names have been suggested as potential pick ups for clubs with a spare list spot. Jackson's name no where in sight. Which isn't really much of a surprise. I think it's pretty easy to forget though how competitive it is just to get an opportunity at AFL level.
