I agree, but that is not what the chorus on that show said.To be fair, Cripps has shown himself to be a much better player than Cotchin, and previously a good leader too. But he has gone away from what made him great, and what helped the team the most. He should go back to it.
Look, here's the thing: I do not disagree with the idea that Cripps should try to become a better captain, to start playing with the goal of bringing his teammates into the game. What I object to is the idea that Cripps plays like Cotchin, at all. They're different players. Cotchin is closer to Walsh than he is to Cripps. Cripps is closer to Priddis or JPK than he is to Cotchin.
It's a false equivalence.
