    Player #20 - Will Langford

    Pictured: Um, is that... hairgel?

    Will Langford played one good game (a Grand Final) which covers a multitude of sins for a while, but not forever.

    Described as a weirdo by his teammates, I'll just leave this here (courtesy of Sam Mitchell):
    Will is the son of Chris who had a career so long and decorated it could be triple-Brownlow medalist Ian Stewart's Saturday dinner dress (look it up if you're not sure what I'm talking about). His dad had an amazing career and a very poor 89 Grand Final in which Gazza Snr (the 'slightly killy' one, not the mercenary one) kicked nine goals on Langford but still lost. Football is a weird sport.

    Anyway on to Will. Not sure where the hell his best position is but it seems to be 'overseas' given he isn't a threat rebounding from defence, doesn't kick goals regularly and as a run with player he doesn't really stop the opposition. He does however have beautiful, beautiful hair so has been a fan favourite over the years NTTAWWT.

    He averaged 11 touches this year and 2 and a half clangers, kicked no goals from his 6 games and was largely left out of the side as Hawthorn preferred "anyone traded in from another club, ever" as Hawthorn stick to their strategy of 'not developing anyone'. Actually that's not true, they do have one promising youngster on their list they are developing, Ryan Burton. I suspect he'll have a long career.

    Anyway back to Will. He...um... has nice hair. And he once described himself as a "one-man wolf pack" which displays a stunning misunderstanding of the concept of social order in migratory predators.

    Anyway Will, good luck with whatever you decide to do next year. Welcome to the Bottom 50 for 2018.

    all us Hawfs can accept this thanks to his 2014 season, including his 3 goals in the GF against $hitney.

    This will not be forgotten, and expectations have now been set. For what it's worth he was excellent throughout the whole finals series and kept Brad Sewell out of the GF team.

    Like casting Sean Bean as a character in a movie or TV show, but more subtle.....

    A cheap and easy movie twist would be to cast Sean Bean and not kill him off.

    Player #19 - Levi Casboult

    [​IMG]
    Pictured: Levi won the 'monkey-see, monkey-do' competition by mimicking fans who watch him play

    Levi Casboult is a Carlton forward which means he is almost a part-time footballer. Except of course he occasionally goes into the ruck to remind us he's slow and uncoordinated there too.

    Levi played 10 games this year (for 10 losses) and performed about as well as you'd expect the 4th forward option for the wooden spoon team to perform. He had one outlyer game against Collingwood where he kicked four goals, managed 14 disposals and had 11 hit-outs. Outside of this game he had a disposal count so low it could double for Shaun Marsh's recent test totals, applied about as much defensive pressure as a Menzel on Valium and after the first four rounds he averaged one hit-out per game while maintaining his goal per game output and of course he averaged less than one tackle per game.

    Put simply he's good overhead but if he doesn't mark it he's about as useful as a fairy floss lifeboat, and in the modern AFL era you need to be good at more than one thing. At least he is a lot more accurate for goal this year, going at 54% which is at least a pass at high school (no wait come back Pies fans).

    To put it another way he signed a two year contract extension with Carlton at the end of 2017 after being shopped around and he was again shopped around this year, yielding less interest than a Whoopi Goldberg sex tape. Like her eyebrows, opposition list managers just disappeared (seriously, she has no eyebrows. Google it. It's weird).

    Good, You're back.

    Anyway Levi will be on Carlton's list one more year as back-up to their non-performers so there is a chance he snags a game or two so I get to write a little more about him next year.
    Levi, mate. Good luck over the pre-season, welcome back to the Bottom 50.
