    Mumble or not he seems humble, focused and articulate....no doubt it's hard to stand in front of a camera and appear polished. I like him and his attitude.

    Is he the guy who was quoted as saying he didn't like Freo? If so it must have come from Crumpet Face because he says exactly the opposite in that clip.

    Apparently he was happy that Freo didn't pick him in the draft.

    Ball delivery into the forward line from the press gallery was extremely average...:huh:

    Heard a radio interview with him on SEN, two things of note to come out of it.
    1. He and hamling are very close mates, both are pumped to run out for FFC together
    2.it seemed he was a square peg in a round forward position hole at Geelong. He was their defensive forward and it didn't sit well with him. Anyone thinking of handing over Mayne's role to Kerstan may want to reconsider. He's looking forward to playing attacking football.
    In saying that, he did pre-qualify the statement by saying he hadn't spoken to Ross Lyon yet.....he might be in for a shock !!
    I also got the impression he wanted to be drafted by FFC originally and was disappointed that we didn't pick him up first. Said he was happy to finally be back where he belonged, or something to that effect

    I so hope not. I hope our first priority is for him to hit the scoreboard. I like that he was not happy with his role. Suggests he might have a few more gears to go up as an attacking player.

    Maybe the term understanding is more appropriate, for his attitude.

    Disagree. I find them talking about freo more than eagles with the least bias that I can find on Perth radio. Besides their segment with Scotty Cummings who openly dislikes freo :p at least he's open about it

    Yep and the tosser that's on with Cummings is all Eagles too. Saying they have the least bias on Perth radio isn't really saying much.

    With all due respect to Shane Kersten. Our whole forward line suffered from lack of defensive pressure. He applied little defensive pressure so if that was his role, he failed miserably. Shane Kersten has no capacity to play the Mayne role.

    The interesting thing with Kersten is that he isn't a great mark, I think Caddy and Cockatoo played the marking role better than him when he was out/on the bench and that to me spelled the end of Shane Kersten. Don't get me wrong, he is a nice mark but as a forward you need to be a better mark if you are going to be effective at AFL level. I also don't think he is mobile enough to play the smaller role in the forward line. He got 17 games to prove himself but in the end guys like Caddy and Cockatoo were preferred as their marking was just as effective and they were far better on the ground and providing pressure. He is your typical inbetweener. Good at everything but not good enough at anything to have that stand out attribute that make him a player.

    Its possible that the open spaces of WA, allow him more room to lead but I just don't think he has it. He is the type of guy who could kick 100 in the VFL and is too good for that level but just doesn't have the tools to be a top-11 player at AFL level. His kicking is beautiful but you need to get the ball to kick it.
