It's irritating getting a snippet of information and not being able to access the details. Still it is the HUN and my expectations are none too high anyway, so I am not totally shattered at being denied the story. But there really is no point in providing a link to a paywall site.Hi Dave - are you able to post the full article please?
Pies stars "sad" to see Eddie depart the club

A good player has awareness enough of ground position and play flow to win the ball flowing onto their dominant side.Really scraping the bottom of the barrel when someone is criticised for not being able to use their opposite foot! I get it by hand because every player should be dual handed, but by foot the margin for error is too large. The assumption is either you enter those elite systems with that skill or you’re good enough to not need it.
You really are a glass half-full type of guy, aren't you?
You don't need to be damaging, but it's a disadvantage if you're not competent enough to get a bit of distance down the line to a contest - most players can do that on their opposite foot.Really scraping the bottom of the barrel when someone is criticised for not being able to use their opposite foot!

I’ll put it another way. For you to be genuinely dual sided at AFL level you need to be elite on both feet at all other levels. Except for the most seriously talented kids have too much going on to acquire that level of skill anymore. Some like C Brown find it hard enough to be damaging on their strong foot...
He's the only non midfielder or key forward who can actually turn a game on it's head in one quater in that draft. He is elite in marking and kicking, can p[lay defense just as good as he plays forward and there is the ability to go in the midfield. He will always be the third tall in our forward line which means he won't get the best defenders and his size and athletisim make him a nightmare to match up on. Hollands before his knee was absolute star and would have gone number one. Phillips in this years draft would not be top 10. Given time, there is no reason why Henrie can't be as good as DeGoey up forward.will say again, Gary Buckenara had him rated at 5 in the draft, ahead of Phillips & Hollands. Would love to know more re the reasons he had him so high, but we'll soon find out what he can do either way...
