His determination excites me.

Players who have talent, which he does, who also want to work as hard as they can, generally make it.
I can remember another full forward who had talent, and he had to work as hard as he could to show us what he had to offer. From memory, and records, he went OK, Could ML be the new JD?:think:

Has been said somewhere on here but I think it was some clever marketing thing, a play on names and numbers at the time of his recruitment Sam Mitchell (5) plus Taz Lewis (3) equals Mitchell-Lewis (8).
Waiting for him to become a star then Mitchell (Hodge) Lewis can claim the 15. Just joking.;)
Maybe instead of giving him 15, they just add that to his number 8.

8 + 15 = ...??

This. Exactly this. The lad wants it bad and is working incredibly hard to make it happen. Will surprise some this year but you would have to be incredibly optimistic to think he will lead the forward line this year. A year or two away from that which sort of works well given this is the last year for roughy you would think.

Agreed, but would not mind us resting the rucks as FF and seeing Rough pinch hit in the middle and this up forward:

FF: Lewis - McEvoy - Puopolo
HF: Breust - Gunston - Wingard

He's a player I'm trying not to think about too much when thinking about the future of our forward line. Not because I don't rate him or anything like that. I just think with the shoes he's going to be trying to fill it's easy for us to get carried away expecting a key forward who can rival what we've had in Buddy and Roughy. If he bursts onto the scene at some point I can be pleasantly surprised, but otherwise I don't want to find myself getting frustrated that a pick 76 didn't make it as the number 1 KPF at Hawthorn.
