It's actually pretty decent from what I have seen.What is DGB's kicking like?
Yeah, looked very much like nerves got the better of him.Not a natural strength, from my observation. Couple of munted kicks versus Bulldogs seconds.
But these could've been nerves, let's give him time to develop.
Cheers D123. I like your post. Your optimism gives me optimism.You're overthinking it , if you don't expect him to set the world on fire in his first couple years its probably best because as a key defender he has a lot of filling out to do . But at the same time you're completely underselling what he has accomplished as a footballer so far and how athletic he is , once he builds his endurance and strength he is going to be a scary prospect.
If you haven't actually seen him play a full game as a junior try get hold of game 2 of the WA all star game from last season, it might change your opinion.
I think his elite/weapon is supposed to be his aerial work & his intercept marking.Cheers D123. I like your post. Your optimism gives me optimism.
i did watch DGB in 2 full WAFL games last year (that is all i have seen, plus his highlights, and his recent game v WB). Obviously i didn't see enough positives in those 2 games to move me from a position of pessimistic worry to a position of excitement, but I am reassured that you did. I did see positives, but pick 6 is a hard benchmark.
I think i would feel much better if he had a weapon; like elite foot skills, or was a dasher, or height, or endurance.
We haven’t even played a game yet this season so hard to judge his first year impact!I think we're spoiled with how advanced Downie and Brockman look.
If our pick 35 and 46 look like they can step in for round 1, why can't our pick 6? Something must be wrong with him!
Pretty sure Bardo State was being sarcastic about something being wrong with DGBWe haven’t even played a game yet this season so hard to judge his first year impact!
people need to shelve their anxiety and be patient. Not all players develop at the same rate and not all players are ready to go from round 1. It is a bit easier as an outside player because mostly you run and kick and that is about it. Kkd have to battle very very strong men in physical contests. Much tougher ask.
