Yeah I think Lobb put the writing on the wall during the off-season asking out, obviously you still play him if he’s clearly best 22 but not so sure that’s clear anymore

AFL stock market: Round 5

Yeah definitely more defensive than he is used to, Port’s smalls got them back in the game

AFL stock market: Round 5

Yeah so sad for Rory! Can’t catch a break

I think Kelly can still prove he is a very good player, but we just aren’t seeing it

He looked so underdone Aliir! Poor guy wasn’t ready for the twin towers

AFL stock market: Round 5

That’s a fair point!!
Always appreciate the interaction on the stock market piece Macca

AFL Stock Market: Round 4

Yeah it’s hard to criticise much that Horse does given his track record, but Kennedy at half back is a real head scratcher for me! And I think Parker is right in his prime so seeing him seemingly pushed out is interesting

AFL Stock Market: Round 4

I understand your criticism, but I’m curious as to why contested possessions are on such a pedestal? I feel like players like Tom Mitchell and Matt Crouch get criticised for only getting contested possessions and not being “damaging”

AFL Stock Market: Round 4

I did touch on Kennedy in a previous round and how him playing half back is not working! Didn’t want to have him falling again

AFL Stock Market: Round 4

Anytime a rookie gets these numbers there will be hype, it’s the nature of sport fandom
We did it with Rowell in 2020
Walsh in 2019
Rhys Palmer in 2008
Chris Judd in 2002
The list goes on and on

AFL Stock Market: Round 4

Which is 100% okay, every team needs balance and with Adams, De Goey, Lipinski and Crisp being very good on the inside, Daicos being an outside player is probably what’s required for the balance of the midfield

AFL Stock Market: Round 4

I think the Ryan call was due to the his individual numbers, the backline as a whole has been very good though

AFL Stock Market: Round 4

I think his decision making can be questionable, leading to some very ugly turnovers which caught him on the outer with Fagan
But he absolutely has the talent to be a good player

AFL Stock Market: Round 4

Yeah 100%, Lycett could use the chop out and the Marshall/Georgiades combination has not looked dangerous at all

AFL Stock Market: Round 4

He did, but he played out the game. Max will get the 3 votes and Jackson could get the 1. To let both ruckman dominate that much as a senior premiership ruckman isn’t up to his standard

AFL Stock Market: Round 4

Nah I don’t unfortunately, not sure where I could source those statistics

AFL stock market: Round 3

71% disposal efficiency which is above the AFL average! May have had some turnovers that stood out but overall looks good in the half back role

AFL stock market: Round 3

I like the call! Always happy for someone to dispute with an educated and respectful rebuttal
Appreciate the interaction Don

AFL stock market: Round 3

TDK had 14 Hit Outs and Nash had 8, not sure of % of time spent in the ruck

AFL stock market: Round 3

Good signs for Freo then when it’s so difficult to find a faller!

AFL stock market: Round 3

I’m happy to disagree, just think TDK’s mix of height and athleticism should mean he can win most contests against mids
Probably a good sign that it’s so difficult to find a faller for the Blues though!

AFL stock market: Round 3

More in terms of his size/strength combination and the way he kicks the footy! Looks a footballer but hasn’t played like an AFL standard footballer this season

AFL stock market: Round 3

I’m a huge fan of Narkle, I was praying for Hawthorn to give up one of our second round picks for him, so it’s definitely not a knock on him or his game! Probably more of a jab at Geelong who battled so hard to keep him but aren’t giving him a crack at it when it’s obvious they need pace and X-Factor

AFL stock market: Round 3

Could be harsh, but considering his past accolades it was just odd to see him omitted after one game, in a loss, where King kicked 4

AFL stock market: Round 3

“Got beaten in multiple ruck contests” was the wording, not beaten overall. But he shouldn’t be getting beaten at all considering Nash is an inside midfielder

AFL stock market: Round 3

Has all the attributes which is the most puzzling thing about it!!

AFL stock market: Round 3

Must be frustrating for Crows fans because he has shown glimpses but unfortunately they can’t keep him around forever
