Lifted in finals, solid player. Needs to work on his set shots, can be very wasteful

Agree.
x2.

Was just about best on in the first half of the Geel final. Strong bodies that crash packs are like offensive linesmen - they win you premierships/super bowls.

Yes because as Australians posting on an Australian Football forum we needed an American Gridiron analogy to better understand what you were talking about...

Im chiming in here.
I'm very critical on this bloke game day.
I find him very wasteful in front of goals and at times very slow.
Since the GF I have watched a number of replays of games this year and I have to say I need to stop being so critical, this bloke is one of the most unselfish smartest players.
His work inside is never seen, but the blocks he puts on opposition when there is a contested ball to be won for his mate to win it very easily is 1st rate.

By no means is he a superstar, but he definitely does the job and plays the role he needs too.

KICK THE FREAKIN GOAL THOUGH!!! Many games that were close this year could have been over or won if he kicked straight (he isn't on his own)

Would you say he blocks, kinda like one of those big guys that protects the QB?  :shh

Yes because no-one here understands the basic concept of "shepherding" that's always been in our game unless it'a translated into Seppo terms for us....

Gave him a 7 because his finals series performance was good. He kicks many goals in junk time and sprays the most getable shots when the game is in the balance and we need to apply scoreboard pressure on the opponent. His disposal is waaaaaaaay below Miles but his big body has meant he could stretch the opposition defence. I also agree that he is very unselfish and shepherds for his team and does the physical stuff to keep the ball moving into our f50

It's worth watching purely because it is the most professionally administered  sport in the world. The rules, the umpiring the analysis the TV rights everything.  We copy it slavishly because it isn't hide bound like golf or soccer to bizarre traditions and as such evolves constantly. As VFL AFL has since the 80's.  Seppo footy is our bigger brother these days for good or ill.

Things we've borrowed or been influenced from Seppo Ball
Multiple umpires
TV replays
Night time footy
Protecting the Head rules
Larger stadium's paid for by the local government
The draft
Free agency
Salary cap

It's a long list and that's 5 minutes of thinking about it.
