lol so many eating humble pie over this one (including some in my own fam). I used to argue with the flogs that sat behind me at Subi when we first made this trade when....my argument...guys like Jetta win u a flag. His kicking is next level, opens up the whole ground and means teams can't just sit in Hurn.

Love that he is now a fan fave. Legend.

Always loved him and glad the haters have to eat humble pie over this.

Stands up for his team mates, educates the young guys, seems like a great person to have around a club. WC like Hawthorn, play well drilled footy that relies heavily on role playing. It sometimes takes guys a bit to adjust, either draftees or players that have been traded for, be that Redden, Jetta, Ah Chee or whoever. But he has worked hard, like Redden and it has clicked for him. He also often stands up in big matches. Great example for why we should be patient with players.

One of my favourites. He's like the anti-Darling when it comes to big games :thumbsu:
Darling hasn't really gone missing that much. He turned our GF around, kicked 6 against a full strength Tigers outfit including Rance and Grimes, the week before kicked 4 against the giants and then kicked 3 at the G against the Pies for our first win there in 12 years or whatever it was.

He was quiet last night though.

The flog can **** off seriously stupid trade

West coast are weak as piss never pull of exceptional trades
No mate pretty sure you won.

We had a contracted player in demand at our club and many others who tries his ass off week in week out. Can play ruck forward takes marks all over the ground and is always a great contributor

Instead we now have a campaigning front running flog who falters when the going gets tough and thinks and acts like he's a class above everybody
lol

If your inside midfielders can feed the ball to Jetta, or kick the ball in front of him and allow him to run onto it you will find Jetta is an extremely damaging weapon. If you are losing the contested possessions and the inside midfielders are not winning the ball then Jetta will look very ordinary.
Amazing how spot on this guy was

Not sure who it was playing on Darling but whoever it was didn't give Darling the freedom that he sometimes gets and likes so probably kudos to whoever that Collingwood player was. But at the end of the day it didn't matter as shut somebody down then somebody else bobs up. It's a team effort. And he did get his couple of goals I think in the 2nd quarter?

We had a couple of old farts in front of us at Subi who started abusing him as soon as he got here, eventually got too much for the missus who let them know the error of their ways in no uncertain terms, haha, they didn't go there again.

Looking at Jetta play over the last couple years, the only thing that pops into my mind is "adapt or perish"

Thought he was cooked a couple years ago when his pace was diminishing. While his disposal was always elite, his pace and ability to break the lines was his biggest weapon.

Usually players blessed with pace tend to fade away once their speed starts waring off, Jetta on the other hand has been able to adapt and has changed his game. We rarely seeing Jetts running out of defence, instead he breaks the oppo zone's with his precise kicking.

Kicking 50m is a lot easier then running 50m too.

Can’t underestimate the fact he is such a weapon by foot and the emergence of shep and McGovern as passable disposers of the ball means teams are screwed trying to shut us down out of the backline. Can’t just sit on hurn and trust no one else will hurt them.
