I’m sorry to say this

Mason Cox has been found out and he’s hit the roof with his potential. He’s currently 29 which aren’t young.
He‘s best form was 2018 and yet Cox only averaged 1 goal per game
He’s aggression towards the ball is pathetic
He can’t take a mark to save his life. Grundy is 204cm and he clunks them 60% of the time.
Cox has taken an opportunity from a young lad to achieve his dream of becoming an AFL player to become the first American to play footy which people will remember him for his one trick pony game

Solution?
1. Pump games into Will Kelly or Cameron. This years flag is tainted anyways
2. Get a full forward such as Mitch Lewis or Nick Larkey
3. Go for a smallish forward line or bring in Ben Reid who will at least make a contest

Whats your opinion about Mason Cox

Had a handful of good games, heavily outweighed by the number of games that he doesn’t compete in.

To all the fanboys - we don’t expect 3 goals a week. We expect him to compete. And he doesn’t do it 90% of the time. And defenders walk the ball out of our forward line as a result.

Our forward line is the worst in the comp, and I wish that was just me overreacting. It’s a special sort of pain seeing this average list make a GF and expect them to maybe improve and get there again.

I don’t agree with our forward line being the worst of the Como, however we were a lot more unpredictable with Cameron in

Became the most overrated player in the league because of 3 uncontested marks and 3 goals.
In fairness... He tools 11 or 12 contested marks that night. He was brilliant.

He has done nothing since, and even though he seems like a great bloke, we cannot play him anymore.

It's so deflating watching drop so many marks when he's managed to get two hands onto the ball.

I can't imagine how his teammates would feel.

One trick pony. Lead, mark, kick. Teams have him figured out. Push him under the ball or put someone in front him and he's useless. Time to start putting some time into some actual footballers, the era of trying to turn big athletic dumbarses has passed. Play Will Kelly ffs

I think it is, if we'd landed Tom Lynch a year ago it would of ended then....no way Pies extend him beyond this year, unless a miracle occurs, which it won't.

I've loved the guy from day 1.
Every week I've watched him with the hope that the change is about to come.
It is with a very heavy heart that I have to admit that he will only ever be depth.

Having said that he doesn't deserve some of the hate he gets. He has achieved a lot.
He’s a good bloke no doubt, however he’s affecting our chances of achieving success

I come in peace, if you don’t want opposition posters I will gladly fu** off.

90% TOG today for a return of two handballs and four hitouts. I don’t understand his continued selection and I genuinely would like insight on it. He’s not a forward and he’s not a ruckman - he’s just a tall person.

What are your KPF stocks behind him - is there a kid that is expected to take over when he develops? Is there not a VFL player in the supplementary draft worth a punt? Even a speculative teenager from late in the national draft?

How does he get games with relative consistency?

I think its time to pull the pin, but who give Grundy a chop out? I dont think Cameron is any better.
Cameron probably isn't any better at this stage, but has more potential and is younger. I'd be getting games into him as I believe he'll at least offer the same as Cox, and might still be something.
