Because you are obsessed with him.

Let the Mods do their job.
Spot on. I can picture tZb getting all hot under the collar when Jamie applies the liniment at training.....or fogging up the outside of his lounge room window on a Monday in July while Jamie reclines on the couch reviewing running patterns on his laptop....

Couldn't agree more Horizons....not a leaders A...hole..... at least he makes up for it on the eye candy front.... you've got contribute where you can......
I'm no JMac fan but lets watch a real game first.

He is infuriating at times but voted into leadership group.

Again, i have no allegance to players.......North win I do not care who plays.

Exactly right GS... this is a PRACTICE match FFS.... Everyone is rusty (except Bont maybe)....The whole idea is to run our players into form....I fully expect Jamie to be better for the hit out and carve it up in Marsh2....

MacMillan has always had his issues.

Christ our Captain is probably worse.

I just want to see real games first that's all.

“Overreaction” “It’s just a preseason game” “‘Other’ excuse”...

No one can justify the lack of game plan.

I can excuse the skills for maybe 1 more week but that excuse is gone by round 1. Ditto with our midfield setup, which was a complete mess, once again the opposition outnumber us at every contest (or we are just slow). Mind you both these have been issues for a very long time, and should have been one of the biggest priorities when Rhys took over. Must be addressed.

The injuries may excuse Turner, Macmillan & MacDonalds positions, that also goes by round 1. If Rhys plays them all based on output over last 5 years and this preseason, then we may as well still have Brad.

Dunno what the f*** they’re gonna do with the backline tbh, Tarrant helps a lot obviously but the lack of composure out of our backline has been a problem for over a decade.
Great vision. He can separate over the first few steps and is a ball magnet. He's way back in the guillotine queue.
[/QUOTE]
He's an accumulator that's for sure, knows how to find it.... However I feel he has way too many deficiencies to make it as a midfielder and he can't play anywhere else. I hope I'm proven wrong but I reckon he's a bust....Bonar already ahead in his first year.

I don’t think I’m overacting at all

I don’t care whether it’s a practice match or not, Jmac has to show leadership no matter what and be consistent in his message

He started to lift under Shaw at the back end of last season and had some ripping games. I am confident he will lift in 2020 and hopefully silence some people that are obsessed with his downfall

I agree Horizons.... If anyone can get the best out of Jamie its SuperCoach Shaw. Expecting a rebooted JMac v 2.0 when round 1 arrives

I didn’t think his early season form was too bad and he seemed somewhat of a scapegoat with how we were going at the time.

Their trade currency is pretty irrelevant given Hall is nearing 30. If they were the same age I would give up more for Hall all day long. Even now I don’t think anyone would give up much for either. Libba has done his knee twice and hasn’t played well for years.

Well when we started winning again, Shaw still didn't think he was worthy of a recall.

Because he was out with mental health or injured. Probably a fair call on Shaw’s behalf.

He played 2 VFL games under Shaw (only 5 for the year) and the last one he got injured and was out for the year.
