Dunno, if you can't control the ball with a one paced and inaccurate midfield - what good are you? It's been your achilles heel all year.
it's not necessarily his job. he should be getting out to guys with better disposal. problem is our best kicks dont play midfield.

i dont have concerns about either crouches as talents. plenty older and worse who need to be moved on though.

Because Fogarty was doing nothing in the SANFL to be worthy of a recall to a team expected to play finals. You don't just hand out games for the sake of it, he has to earn it. One game does not make a career either.
Shouldn't have been in the SANFL to begin with

Here we go. Now Matt Crouch isn't much chop lol.
43 touches. 18 contested. 10 clearances today.

Your assessments of who is good and who isn't is just a bit flawed.
It's a badge of honour to not be rated by Brades. Next it'll be Steve Smith isn't that good

When will you look past the basic stats and actually watch a game for what it is? You're so basic, like your personality.

Sorry football guru, I'll bow when you enter the room next time.
Doesn't rate brownlow medallists or gun small forwards though.
At least I'm not basic and unable to understand football. If we based it on stats Liam Anthony would still be playing. You probably thought he was a gun when he came in too. What about Anthony Miles? Remember the fawning over him by commentators? now at Gold Coast.

Shane Woewodin won a Brownlow and let's be honest, he wasn't that good of a footballer.



Don't you dare say a bad word about Cookie.
Woewoedin, Dangerfield, Priddis, Cooney.. I mean seriously. Umpires only pick based on possessions rather than game influence.

Cooney was great in his brownlow year and won a few games off his own boot. To bad he smashed his knee in the qualifying final and was never the same footballer.

Not at the start of the season though right? I mean you said - start of the season. Not me.
Massive question marks on walker going into the season. And Jenkins got dropped a few times last year so he's the one they should have started without and made him bang down the door to take the spot of Walker or Fogarty

Huh? Jenkins didn't miss a game last year.
