Picking on Butler out of all our midgets is a bit rich.  Bolton was like a kid bouncing off of adults all night.  We were one player down with him.

No doubt has talent to burn but needs to get the fundamentals right firstly and that is run and chase. Still ahead of Castagna though

Funny thing is that Bolton's efforts would have placed him among our better defensive runners had he played in some past Richmond sides....standards are thankfully so much higher now.... :shh

It’s probably because you have a habit of bagging the poo out of our young players who barely have pubes

Against Adelaide Bolton was one of the top 3 forwards for contested possession (5). Also in the top 3 forwards for tackles (3) and in the top 3 players in the team for pressure acts (23).


.... but let’s drop him because he’s lazy.  :lol :rollin

There you go using stats again to tell a story

You can quote as many stats as you like but I won't be changing, my  mind he was terrible Thursday night; the worst of the 3. His inability to for whatever to give 2nd efforts is a major issue.

 On number of occasions Adelaide switched play through his direct opponent because they worked out very early on it was very easy out for them to make the switch

Watch the game, in spite of the stats his influence on the game was slight.

Bolton has played how many games WP? How many preseasons?

But Castagna can have 20 poor games and still has grace because he’s really really fast :lol
Doesn’t matter if he can’t kick or constantly makes poor decisions time after time.   :rollin

Until Rioli is fit to play we need someone to fill his role. But let’s not give notice to any premiership players no matter how bad they play.  :shh
