I'd go a step further than that, and theorise that his forward craft has gotten worse since his first season or two, because he's discovered that continually calling for the ball over the back, and looking to body up on a defender and get a free kick, rather than providing a lead, or crashing a pack is a much easier way to get goals ... work smarter, not harder.
Very possible, his method of scoring changed big time from the start till now.

Conspiracy theory, AFL is loving Chrisso suspending blokes and then them going to the tribunal. More controversy more anger and more air time.
Actually makes sense seeing how they got rid of penalties for failed appeals, means that more players are willing to challenge

Hilarious the people who jumped on the bombers. They won't win **** with that game style. They are playing our game style with faster players
Better transition but worse inside. Also have leadership issues (Like us). If you combined our strengths you’d have a good side at least...

Game style and list both deficient. I predicted them as maybe scraping into the eight but just as likely missing. And their game style will see them thumped in a final so it doesn’t really matter much either way.

Yeah, Shiel was never going to fix their midfield issues, where Essendon consistently plays soft footy we play dumb footy, I'm not sure what's more frustrating

David Kings won’t let go of hyping up the bombers. I wonder when he’ll just give it up. They need a Clarry type. And we need a Shiel but with better kicking skills

Eh David king has been on our bandwagon for the last two years. Obviously can't pick a good bandwagon, but he seems big on hyping the outside chances

Tom Boyd just retired, 23 years old.
Sounds about right, put himself under enormous pressure playing for such money. Don't care what anyone says, young players shouldn't be on such large coin, especially in this day and age when it can effect you mentally

I respect the guy. Made a boat load of money, won a GF and played a big role in it

I know it’s hard to appreciate money and **** when you have the black dog, but I reckon it was a good little career
