JC chose a good time to jump ship
Probably because he played as a forward mostly. His best games in the middle at the cats were basically on par with his performance at Carlton.If Fogarty continues his development and performances at CARLTON then we seriously need to look at why he didn't perform at the Cats... Something his off
Played many minutes forward and involved in a lot of score involvements. He was replaced with 33 yo Higgins. We didn’t rate him enough it seems.Not the same type of player, nor do they play the same type of role
To get the best of Fogarty he needs to be in the guts, meaning that at Geelong he'll face the same issues as Constable as too whom they keep out of the 22
He did perform. Go back to the game against North last year. He was played through the midfield and put in a similar performance to today.If Fogarty continues his development and performances at CARLTON then we seriously need to look at why he didn't perform at the Cats... Something his off
Like it or not, this is part of the "all in" strategy the coaches and committee are aiming for. If Higgins and Smith do their part (and their "part" should be considerably higher than a 2nd or 3rd-year player) and we somehow jag a flag this year or next, it's paid off. If not, well...He did perform. Go back to the game against North last year. He was played through the midfield and put in a similar performance to today.
But he wasn't kept in the side, and then in the off-season they needed to clear cap/list space to bring in old players like Smith and Higgins. It's a similar story to Constable. Next year he'll probably be averaging 30+ possessions playing as a pure midfielder somewhere and the same questions will arise about why he couldn't do it with us. And the answer is that he could, just like Fogarty, but a choice was made to play/bring in players near the end rather than give chances to younger guys.
One wonders what his end of game stats would have looked like, if DeBoer hadn't been injured.sign of a good player when you are copping the tag and only have 6 touches to halftime. Oliver didn't stop running and was able to accumulate 17 touches in the second half
Come on now, you have to trust them. They’re on a journey...Their recruitment doesn’t look like it
Not really. Selwood and Danger are the king dicks and will be until they decide to retire.Same-dopey letting him go.
