He isn’t a natural trainer, battling niggles, personal mental challenges and running low on confidence.
Pro sports require pros. It’s a bit early for me to write him off now. I’ll give him to round four or five to show me if he will make it.
If he can get to 75% of his capacity and show the coaches on the training track and VFL give him a run of 5 + games in the 1s.
We may find that his issues are just too insumountable for him to play AFL at the highest level, but we don’t know that yet.
He deserves the opportunity to show us what he has and we deserve to know.
Give the guy a go and let him find his inner professional footballer.
