I guarantee Jones plays 3 good years somewhere else when we desperately need exactly his type
It sounded like he pretty much had his pick of any team in the competition for 3 years on good money, with every team needing a KPD.

Maybe he just didn’t choose us.

I saw Graham punch the ball he should have marked completly uncontested about 5 times. It's just unacceptable. Is he being directed to do that?

He's done it his whole career

We need a ready made FFS he lives on the GC and played for Palm Beach FFS. We are going to regret this Lyons Brodie and passing on Jones.
He could go the other way and never get there but my gut tells me he will. Time will tell.

You know what though I reckon he becomes a gun all of a sudden potentially. He starts getting the confidence to mark and all of a sudden he's awesome cos he's getting to the positions to mark.

He's worth persisting with. Rance was a s**t truck like Graham for a few years.
Graham has got the capacity to be a decent aerial defender. Has certainly improved, although a long way to go.

He remains absolutely pathetic below his knees and haven’t seen any change with this over the past 2 years.

Weird rotations again.
Davies, Rosas and Sharp 50-605 TOG

Anderson 93% far in excess of any other midfielder out there

Hate to say it but we have been calling for hollands since about Rd 2. Maybe the time in the reserves has built him up to this level but I can't help but think if he was playing against Collingwood instead of Tsitas we win and the Port game.
Should have been playing since Round 1, 2021. He will be a top 2 player for your side.

He had a lot of ordinary games in VFL. IMO, it does not hurt to develop in VFL, learn several positions. I like Swans approach. McDonald and other Swans young guns spent a lot of time in VFL. I remember well e.g. Hayward, Lizard toiling there.

Was only ordinary when weller and Powell went down so they started playing him wing. Maybe the extra time in reserves is just what he needed though. Really disappointing that it seems we have ran out of gas at the end of the season again. The injuries in the middle part didn't help but something we need to fix. Doesn't help in trade period when you look average in the back end of the season either.

We run Hawks off their legs and increased pressure in contest in the last quarter. IMO, it was more mental, no dare, less pressure, safe footy, turnovers in the first half for whatever reason.

I’m glad people are telling me we have improved immensely as otherwise I would think we are still a slow off the mark poor skilled and drilled team that has a one trick pony game plan of bomb it down the line and onto the goal square

Totally agree has had more impact in his first 3 games than Davies has had in all his 15 games so far.

Don't get me started on Flanders. At least Davies has done something occasionally

Could Elijah get a rising star nomination? His stats are excellent. 2 goals, 18 kicks from 23 disposals, the best disposal efficiency of the team - 78%, 521 meters gained.

100%. Too bad he's not in Hawthorn colours. He would be the perfect piece to complete a very good young midfield that we've all of a sudden found ourselves with. A great steal at pick 7, like Josh Ward is proving to be.

This year we’re the 9th best attack (points for) 1698 points for with 2 games left.

Last year we were 18th best attack. 1430 points for the year.

We’re not Geelong, and yes, still make a lot of mistakes but scoring an extra 400+ points across the course of the year seems like pretty clear objective evidence of improvement to me.
