Come on down to discuss all things Dustin Martin.

Seems like this conversation is going to keep coming up in every single ******* thread i go into, so we might as well at least have the discussion in it's own thread if it's going to be popping up each week.


SPP Round 1 vs Sydney
19 disposals, 3 marks, 2 tackles, 3 fend off's, 2 goals 1

Round 2 vs Fremantle
25 disposals, 4 marks, 1 tackle, 6 fend off's, 1 goal, made Fyfe cry twice :heavycheck:

Best thing you've done here for a while Dark Sharks. Was making me stay away a bit as I was sick of discussion heading down this path all the time. Probably the only post I'll make in this thread too.

I have a strong suspicion he'll turn out like Rhys Palmer. A couple of blinder years, then the flaws in his game start to get found out and feasted on.

I'm happy to back in our recruiting staff, DV has only played 4 limited games after missing nearly a year with a foot injury. I'm glad SPP is doing well, but its only 2 rounds in to what should be 10+ year careers. It's way too early to tell who the better pick will be.

First it was Mitch McGovern, and now this.

He was already in our system, his only flaw (kicking) would improve immensely once he was at an AFL club (as it already has), and he could have an impact from round 1.

Maybe I'm being unfair to DV, but ignoring the obvious choice in the draft is getting a bit ridiculous.

Two games in stouches with Fyfe stirring up S Hill and L Neale .

Enjoying his time at AFL level .

Maybe we can have both one day , Venables looks very handy at pick 13 .

Schoey, Butts and Shue were absolutely singing Venners' praises on their podcast last week. Reckon he's a dead ringer for Shuey, to the point that they were wondering if Shuey's dad might havedone a bit of wandering on his postman route 19 years ago.

If we've got another Shuey then I'll be pretty happy with the pick.
