Kind of puts to bed the theory about LDU being dropped because he needed a rocket about his not going hard enough

What's it been, four weeks?
I'm struggling to see the big difference between Jys output at VFL level compared to LDU's.

Jy spent what, a week down there?
 

Heaps of fun

Jy's first game was 27 touches and 2 goals.
LDU's was 16 touches, second game 23 touches, 5 tackles. Not exactly dominating like Jy did. I'd prefer him in the team though, driving a Ferrari through the mud atm.

Great.

LDU’s first 4 weeks at AFL level were far superior to Jy’s.

That side would be close to the oldest in the league this week.

True,but i see Jack as a short term fix. its not adding polish to our game like LDU & Ahern will in the future.
I reckon Jed has less of an influence when Jack is in the middle because they both attack the man.
I guess while finals are still an option we will stick with whats working now.
"In the future" being the operative context.

******* LOL at being 2-6 yet fielding one of the oldest teams in the league and three of our best young mids playing twos.

IRT to our medium- and long-term future this is downright negligent atm.
You really give this oldest team routine a going over
Cld you maybe Think About it!

We are 2-6
Plenty of chances to sneak into the 8 with the way the game is
We want our best team on the park now

You would think that the fact that the teams output significantly improved once a few youngsters were relegated would also be considered by any rational person.
