    This for sure. Why not just nominate Essendon now? Unfortunately i reckon Jake may miss a bit of footy in next year or two from dealing with his issues.

    Connors mentioned he's not coping well with the whole process of moving clubs.

    And yeah if his ex is close to Bomber wags wouldn't that be worse for him?

    I beg to differ on pretty much everything you say here. The expectations of a developing 2nd year KPF need to be kept in context, and not be seduced by the 5% of Key Position players that can keep their heads above water in their early seasons.

    Compare him with the other first picked key forwards in the draft after two seasons:
    2011: Jonathon Patton 10 games, 9 goals, 10 score assists, 8 contested marks
    2012: Joe Daniher 26 games, 31 goals, 21 score assists, 33 contested marks
    2013: Tom Boyd 23 games, 24 goals, 12 score assists, 26 contested marks
    2014: Paddy McCartin 17 games, 17 goals, 8 score assists, 22 contested marks
    2015: Josh Schache 27 games, 25 goals, 16 score assists, 23 contested marks

    All similar standard, basic numbers. All had their external critics judging them harshly. Going by your logic, all of these players lowered their value because of their footy? I'm not buying it. Granted it's not always black and white just looking at the stats, but Schache has shown plenty for those that are brave enough to watch a Brisbane match over the last few years.

    He has great leading patterns and a natural thirst for the contest, mainly in his first year when he was in a better headspace than he was this year. I remember covering his second career game up at the Gabba where he was matched up against Tarrant and Hansen and he took 5 genuine contested marks on them. When a young player can show that type of dominance against some of the biggest bodies in the competition, you know you have plenty to work with.

    I mean if your Dusty maybe you feel a little bit silly. You achieved it all in one year, could've taken it easy the rest of your career for a huge payday.

    Richmond have looked after him from day one. Brendan Gale lived with him for a year to keep him on track and 1.1m isn't anything to scoff at.

    Glad he stayed - thought he and Fyfe would about mid year.

    He's a pretty consistent goal a game half forward flanker, if our assessment of him is that GWS have squeezed him out of his more natural midfield role then I'm backing us in. Runs hard, willing tackler, good kick.

    To be perfectly honest I prefer him to Saad as a secondary target to Stringer because I rate our young backs more than I rate our young mids.

    Begley/Laverde forward and McGrath into the middle.

    I always thought that Stewart was a great player for us to target.Not claiming that I thought things would turn out as well as they have but it was an easy target to understand.
