    But if you took out the 10 last game he was 59 from 21, so Hipwood was more than half of Buddy...until last week.

    Witherden is 5th for effective kicks in the defensive half of the ground for 2017. That is ******* nuts.

    thats since his debut compared to other players during that timeframe, not over the whole 2017 season. Still thats pretty bloody incredible for a first year player.

    Ah must have misread. As you said still bloody incredible especially given the bombardment our backs have been under.

    He tries to get a little cute some times for my liking (ala Suckling). But he is a beautiful kick.

    He acknowledged that in a recent interview which is awesome. Some of his kicks on the weekend were so well spotted.

    Actually...

    • In Buddy's first 2 years he played 34 games and registered 74 scoring shots.
    • Eric has played only 31 games yet registered 73 scoring shots.
    • Therefore ~ Eric was/IS 8% BETTER THAN BUDDY, simples! :D

    Come on... there's no such thing as an irrelevant statistic. All numbers are beautiful and bursting with deep meaning. Eg: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55... etc. I'm sure that's as perfectly clear to everyone as 42 is.

    So what you're saying is that we can look forward to 145 scoring shots from Eric next year? Woohoo!

    Amateur, a feeble supposition.

    Try using facts, rather than hypothesis, theories and/or opinion. I'd suggest you stick to YOUR big positive of the year, you suck less than me at supercoach. :$

    Can I say that ourcdelistings are a positive in the sense that in the past their have been quite a number of players that we would have delisted without a second thought. This year you can make a case for most if not all our delistings to get another year. So the fact that we are having to think about this is a positive.

    I have just listened to the club podcast where Fagan was interviewed. I was firmly of the opinion that Fagan is the great positive to come out of this year. Now I know he is the great positive.

    It will start getting harder over the next 4 years I believe. Apart from possibly Martin, and barring retirement due to injury, we have no players close to the end of their careers. There is going to be a lot of pressure on the bottom 10 players on the list, especially the younger kids and rookies in their final year.

    I'm also curious as to the thought processes behind the rule that clubs must delist a minimum of 3 players each year.

    Just some observations from watching the GF again.
    Hanley has very quick disposal with hand and foot. Developing well as a small defender with run. Just needs to improve his longer kicks.
    Hinge perhaps the best game I've seen him play. Kept Rose goalless and he kicked 6 on us last time. A great kick, looked the best of our boys when taking the kick-in.
    Keays's gut running was super impressive. Just needs to work on his ability to steady at pace, could have easily kicked 4 goals.

    Hipwood name at Full forward and Harris Andrews fullback for Under 22's team

    how bloody good looks like our two key pillars are fine for the future

    bit stiff on someone like Lewis Taylor missing out though

    also anyone notice guys like Will Hayward getting into the top 5 for best first year player, no mention of Witho or Mcluggage or Berry, don't know what it will take for our boys to get noticed

    On a player voted award I think you benefit a lot by being in a good side.

    Even with that being the case, I think Witherden would be right at the pointy end of a few awards if he had played 15-20 games.

    To be fair, I don't think McCluggage had a great year, plenty 1st years infront of him. Berry while being pretty good in the middle had a fair few statistically bad games (in relation to disposals). Witherden was fantastic, but l think he needed to play more games for him to be in.

    Let's not start doing sarcastic positives in this thread, yeah?
