I see what you’re saying regarding flexibility with Fyfe, and I don’t disagree. Short stints up forward to rest - 100%. But IMVHO he’s primarily a mid - and the best in the comp in the middle - so I think that should be his position first and foremost. Playing him as a forward with short stints in the middle is scamming Peter to throw a few bucks to Paul.He's a weapon up forward. So strong one on one, going to often draw the opposition's best defender, will create head aches for other teams. People knock his goal kicking but it's improved greatly from that 2013 grand final.
We can afford to play Fyfe forward courtesy of the exciting development we have seen from our young mids. No matter where Fyfe plays he'll be a joy to watch and he's still going to be rotating through the middle.
We may have the best midfielder in the game but we also have one of the best (admittedly still developing) young midfield groups. Don't know how anyone could be disappointed by having the flexibility to send Fyfe forward.
