You know those guys.

The Joel Bowden's of the world.

The dudes that are stars 'cause they always get the nut and their stats look awesome - but if you have a clue and are capable of assessing the game on what you see, rather than what the scrote commentators tell you, youbut realise that they actually don't do that much harm. They're actually pretty ineffective.

Seb Ross.
Andrew Gaff.

Who else?

Gaff is more effective the longer the match goes on. Second half time-on influence.

You bulldog people really need to give young Jake a break.
I've never seen a supporter base more negative to a former player than you gysy.
And he even helped get you a flag.

It's because we see him doing all the same things that used to frustrate us. The **** set shots, the refusing to crash a pack, the avoidance of strong body contact. All these things are holding him back from being one of the best if not the best player in the comp. I agree he shouldn't be criticised too much since he's been pretty good this year. But players will always cop criticism when they don't fulfil their potential.

I've just been praising him on another thread, but let's be real. He's incredibly inconsistent.

If he had the workrate of most AFL players he'd be one of the best player in the competition.
