I was listening to 774 and the clowns commentating were saying that Bonar was a midfielder and completely out of his depth on JDG. Morons had no idea the work he'd done in defence and the fact he copped the mother of all corkies from Ziebell six days earlier.
Ro$$ the Bo$$ trotted out similar garbage on MMM.

Any other white players? Because as discussed on this thread Wells used to get the same.
De Goey actually. The worst thing I've seen is him jogging metres from the ball carrier who ran away with it.

Jy, Bailey Scott, LDU for us this year - all jogging after a contest or opposition player at times, or at least once. Cunners does it, Jack too. There are a few others that escape my memory now.

Tarryn needs more intensity. Like Turner or Jed.

Petracca took the ball off him at one point early in that game. Its been commented on. And then late, maybe the last quarter, Petracca had hands on the ball and Tarryn reefed it off him with shedloads of intent. It was the most fired up thing I've ever seen him do. He needs to bring that attitude more, like all the time, if he really wants to make the most of his talent.

I think you're about right on this one Ferbs. Lazy isn't the word to describe it. He works hard generally and is very quick despite how easy he makes it look.

At times he kind of looks like a boxer who is uncertain of his range. Compared to someone like Jed who is acutely aware of when he is within homing missile distance.

Tarryn seems like an easy going, nice guy most of the time. He needs a bit more mongrel onfield I reckon. A bit more anger to really drive him that extra mile.

He just doesn’t look like that kinda guy.....remember him making a joke with Cunners on the bench last year and getting the stern look. Seems like a cruisey kid, they can’t all be maniacs at the man. I think we will love how easy he will make things look in the future. Pendlebury never looks manic, but he’s one of the more special players to watch with the footy.

Yeah, I'm reserving judgement. I can see where he's going and he showed frustration tonight we previously hadn't witnessed. We've got a squad that has lacked positivity at times and when they have, they have a propensity to go into their shell when it doesn't come off. We're another draft or two away from getting the quality from being a serious threat. With another 3 or 4 quality guys that can run through the midfield and provide the decision-making and ball use we currently lack, we can then be taken seriously. That's what it will take.
To be fair to him, he's coming into a club with one of the poorest squads in recent time handed to him. No offence by that either, ours was a rubble pre Fagan too. He was a huge part of turning it around up here and a great pick up for you.
