Though I don't disagree with you, surely it's been said enough....

Die-hards would struggle to defend him now.

The photo Kornes stirred him about comparing to Dixon should be enough to immediately delist him. He's getting paid as much as any of them and you simply cannot rock up like that. That's unforgiveable at his age.

yep, he seems to drag a few others down with him. Absolutely terrible again today. Played so poorly he should be dropped for multiple weeks no matter how his scratch match form or training is.
Maybe he should try the power stance while looking into a mirror And realize he‘s not up to it and soft.

Jumped the shark with the power stance never been the same since.
Yeah that’s definitely it...

Or it could be that his wife had a miscarriage last year? Or now has different priorities with his newborn son? Or the constant bashing of his character since 2017 has finally taken its toll?

His time is done at AFL level, but I hope there are really good people around him as his mental health would’ve taken a huge hit over the last 3 years.

I hope anyone “looking at the numbers” this year is allowing for the 20% reduced game time.

But yes, he is a turd
He’s a turd? What has he done to you exactly for you to bash his character? Feel free to critique his form this season because it’s definitely warranted, but there’s no reason to personally abuse someone you don’t actually know.

Is there a player in the AFL that plays/looks more lackadaisical then this bloke? Had a look at his numbers this year compared to other seasons and there is an alarming drop off. Would hate to have his attitude infest my own club if he were on the list.
Disagree. He's struggling, but its not an attitude problem. He's been a good leader for the club and works hard. Key forwards are finding this year very hard. Numbers are getting back, the space is cramped because players are less tired

Ben Brown and Jack Reiwoldt have been just as bad and their not playing for the leagues worst team. Like Tex, they also have poor body language at times. Cameron hasn't done much more either, or the West Coast key forwards

Tex Walker 8.0 disposals, 1 goal per game
Ben Brown 7.8 disposals, 1.2 goals per game
Jack Reiwoldt 7.5 disposals, 1 goal per game
Jeremy Cameron 8.25 disposals, 1.75 goals per game
Jack Darling 7.6 disposals, 1 goal per game
Josh Kennedy 6.4 disposals, 1.2 goals per game

no normal person would wish those issues on anyone - but in footballing terms he’s always been happy to publicly speak his mind and criticise others

I was referring to his playing performance but thanks for getting triggered.

Care to provide examples of this? He barely posts on Twitter anymore because he just cops abuse regardless of what he posts. He does one radio gig a week in Adelaide that no one in Melbourne would listen to.

He will always defend the Crows because he’s passionate about the club, not sure why that means he deserves character abuse that has consistently happened since 2017.

What did you think about his pathetic excuse of a speech after they got thumped in the 2017 decider? He lost a lot of respect that day for being a sore loser.
