I thought he was good, and used the ball better than his numbers would have suggested. He was often kicking low to a leading player that simply didn't read the ball well enough and it got cut off.

We need to start presenting at the ball carrier a hell of a lot better.

There is nothing wrong with his kicking skills.
There is no evidence that he has ever had anything wrong with his kicking technique since being drafted.
Completely agree, I have no idea where this butcher tag has come from. I actually love having the ball in his hands.

Does butcher the ball in strange ways with poor decision making though. Obviously that will improve over time. We have a real player.
I agree. His kicking us actually quite good, i just feel he rushes his disposal at times leading to poor outcomes.
But to average 26 disposals as a 20 year old in a mediocre midfield is a hell of an achievement and we really couldn't ask any more of him. Amazing we got him at pick 43!

Warps is already awesome and only going to get better. If there will be a bigfooty fight, leave him out of it.

Not sure why he isn't getting bigger notice from the media. The kids is a jet in his second year. Imagine the gushing if he was at Sydney or Collingwood
If he was a top 5 pick they’d be announcing him as having one of the best starts to a career ever....

Instead you’ve got mouth-breathers like Goddard writing articles about how his development has stalled.

What a halfwit.
