Let him learn... learn how to endure, learn tenacity, learn to deal with pressure at this level...I'd rather nurse Blakey than drop him.
His potential is huge.
There is no neafl .
What have you got to lose?
Reality is. He can play.
Season is toast. Let him learn.
I have watched every scratch match and every neafl game for the last two years. The coaching staff at the swans have completely lost it. The era of the bloods is dead and buried. When they dumped Stuart maxfield and kept Steve Johnson it was out with the old and in with the new.Some posters are absolutely affronted that Foot and Wicks aren’t getting picked. “What else do they have to do?”
I love the arrogance of these posts. What have they done? Are people going to training sessions and scratch matches to see what the MC are seeing?
Never change people.
This would have been an ideal debut for Maibaum - Hawks are no world beaters - yet we aren't favourites either. Brand not back yet...Surely one of Gould, Melican, Maibaum, Brand or O'Connor is available to play? We are going to run Rampe and our other giant, the Silver Fox, into the ground.
Sorry but if you have one rule for Warner, McInnerney, Stephens, Gould (who can't even get a game) and others then blakey has to be trweated the same. don't give a sh*t how much talent you have, it is even worse that in this case he is not performing, if you don't perform you go. Simple.Let him learn... learn how to endure, learn tenacity, learn to deal with pressure at this level...
These are all things that he could learn at this level which would stand him in good stead later on in his career
He'll be rusty for sure but if he kicks a few they'll only be icing on the cake.In before Reid kicks a bag of 5 this week... then none in the next 3 weeks.
Do you ever not complain?How does Blakey get a game
Why back to duds in grey and Taylor and not wicks?
Thought Ling was on limited minutes and not getting a kick
How isn’t mcirey not in?
