You’re right all but on everything (well except about being in a circle; on that I’ll pass).
That said, you’re right.
Tyler Brown IS Nat Fyfe.
His fame will last at least as long as his presidential (John Tyler*) namesake’s living grand children go.



* John Tyler the 10th US President (1841 - 1845).

** two of his grandchildren are still alive!!!!
Somehow l don’t think his grandchildren are still alive, they be what 150yrs old plus, maybe great, great grandchildren.

Indeed they are.
Two of them in their 90s.

John Tyler has many many children, I think something like 15.
He had children even late in life, in his 70s.
One of his children, that he had when he was old, likewise had a child very late in his life (70s or so too) and hence it really works out (70 plus 70 plus 90 gives you 230 years which takes you back to at least approximately circa 1761 when Tyler was born it was 1790 so we have years to spare so to speak).

For trivia buffs John Tyler was also the first President to ascend from the Vice Presidency after the death of a sitting President (Henry Harrison).

He (Tyler) ensured he was only referred to as Mr President and returned unopened any mail addressed as Mr Acting President.

I could see them debuting him later this season and i think he will probably be the more successful of the 2 brothers at afl level,he has some size and also some ability just needs experience.
He looks bigger than his dad and his dad went alright for a skinny kid.

Daicos will be a gun ..
He's got lovely skills, but I worry about his combination of a lack of size and strength and middle of the road pace. To me he has to work on his tank as I see outside midfielder as his most suitable role and that's a role for blokes with elite endurance. Either that or develop the strength to match it on the inside. Either way, I think he's a couple of years away from physically being able to cement himself in a role.

Interesting that they threw Tyler into the centre in the last quarter.
Must have huge faith in him to do that.
It was only a glorified practice game. Besides he was barely on before the final quarter, so he was a totally unknown quantity. But yes he did play out of the centre.

Strength (and to a degree power/explosiveness) takes less time to develop than endurance. There's enormous potential in him, and I don't believe that his lack of pace will hold him back. I agree about him needing another year or 2 to develop that strength and burst.

Nice mark. Getting better. But surely still 12 months away. Only 19 still, doesn't get enough ball yet and no room for him at present in the senior team as is.

Emergency for the seniors! I know we have some injuries but considering he has been one of those injuries it's a fair effort and even a little surprising, keep hearing he could be anything and obviously the club agrees

Yeah but odd got 13 kicks on the weekend and in-line to play seniors. The things he does he looks good and I believe he can become a very good AFL player but think he shouldn’t be in senior contention

We have 15 listed players in that squad and I’d be confident about 3 of them could play a role if called upon. I don’t know what to make of it.
