The ones where I'm correct? SANFL form doesnt matter.

Thilthorpe couldn't get a game on SANFL form when that supposedly mattered. How did was it relevant to his AFL capacity?
Correct ?? Ok yep.

Thilthorpe had shown enough in his SANFL games to warrant selection, and we all knew he'd be a better player at AFL level.

McAsey is playing well as the #1 KPD in a poor SANFL side. He's absolutely worth a contract extension.

If the best argument in favour of extension is to substantially overstate form in a second tier competition that does not meaningfully project AFL capacity so be it, let's just not pretend its a good argument.

Sounds like Fish still isn't training much and his fitness is still a work in progress.

Last year when he played he was always trailing his opponent or pushed off it easily. I'd be keen to see him once he has built this up more and got some more power in his body.

I don't watch SANFL but it's good to see him getting some conistency.

KPDs take time to develop. Talia spent bloody ages in the SANFL before getting to step up. I wouldn't be writing McAsey off just yet.
Correct. Talia spent almost two seasons in the SANFL before debuting in round 15, 2011. McAsey was thrown into the deep end last year, but is lining up for just his 5th SANFL game in 27 minutes time.
