#1 Andy McGrath - has till the end of 2020 to exceed Gary Ablett the very Junior

So what you’re saying is, we’re going to win the next 8 flags back to back?
I concur.


#4118

And also looks like he could be his son.

I found a pic of tommy b when I was cleaning out car yesterday.

I put it under the visor. With pics of the kids. And the dog. And a Pokémon card.

Fk I got in trouble


#4120

Perhaps next time ask before cleaning out Tommy’s car.


#4121

Slightly concerned he had pics of kids and dog.


#4122

The saga cost us a possible period of success with the team at the time on the rise. But because the fallout was so well managed by Dodoro and co. we now have a chance at new period of success.


#4123

It wouldn’t surprise me if Merrett never got the chance to be captain because McGrath leapfrogged him, assuming Heppell holds onto it for a number of years to come


#4124

I’d be surprised.


#4125

Me too.

Unless Maca becomes a naturalised Aussie Citizen for a start, … he’s no hope.
As if we’d have a Canadian as Captain, … :smirk:


#4126

I think you’re right.
Makes me wonder what other players have missed because of this?


#4127

Yeah the team was on the verge of something special and then the saga exploded.


#4128

I remember in one of Zach’s first pre season sessions, Jobe walked away and said to his old man, “I don’t know who the top 25 kids were from this draft but they must be superstars, cause this kid has it and is a genuine star already”

Zach had it from day one.


#4129

Just saw the practice match footage.

He’s the midfield jet we’ve been longing for.


#4130

Yep. Interesting to hear in Shiel’s interview he was the one player he picked out as being a star performer as well


#4131

A proper Intra club??


#4132

Looks like it, and foggy called it as such in the training thread.


#4133

Hmmm, … sounds like the BBBBQ should have been today then??

@Soulnet Is there another on the Thursday then?


#4134

Anyone who saw my posts in the 18s thread before we drafted him would know why I’m not suprised to see him smashing it in the middle, remember it like it was yesterday watching a Sandringham game next to Dodoro with McGrath getting a lazy 40 touches.


#4135

Yeah, but, mcCluggage kicks gooaaals


#4136

McGrath’s development has been fantastic. His physical size now is outstanding.

As for the captaincy, I’m sure the club can handle expectations and allow for each to get their chance.

How many players have we had, who are an obvious choice to be captain, not made captain?
