The reality of it is that if we have the ball we are the ones being tackled.Perhaps tackles on its own isn't generally an accurate statistic of pressure or performance (we can only dream of the statistics that clubs can access). Though today, probably helped by the conditions, it clearly was.
Similar reason as to why some coaches don't look at contested possessions as a critical indicator; there are so many aspects to the contest and facets to the stat itself that we don't see.
Quietly did a phenomenal job. Typical old school defender game - didn’t notice him which means he did his job. Himmelburg and Walker combined for 0.1. Schoey’s best game of the season.+ As I'm watching the replay, Schofield who seemed flat and out-of-form when we last saw him, was actually quite good I thought. Haven't seen him mentioned. Thoughts?
He was great but his opponent did assist by being an absolute squib.+ As I'm watching the replay, Schofield who seemed flat and out-of-form when we last saw him, was actually quite good I thought. Haven't seen him mentioned. Thoughts?
lol I'm guessing the correlation between those folks claiming this, and the ones saying Kelly/Ryans games won't translate to AFL is strong...Funny to think that 18 months ago most on here (Including myself) thought that Elliot Yeo didn't have what it takes to be a midfielder. Now he's one of the most complete midfielders in the comp. Turned him self into a bull.
