#13 Orazio "Call me Razzle Dazzle for 1+2 more years" Fantasia


#3306
  1. Players aren’t restricted in there goal kicking practice by sports science staff
  2. We have recruited a “skills acquisition coach” (I kid you not)
  3. Apparently we are a young team still learning to play together
  4. He has seen form change quickly, a-la Richmond

He didn’t sound very convincing.


#3307

How many goals Orazio kick in the twos?

VFL: Team Selection Rd 5


#3308

That has come straight out of the Xav Campbell dictionary of corporate speak.


#3309

Very interesting considering it looks like the exact opposite has happened. Our team currently looks like they have all been Space Jam’d.


#3310

They made sure not to mention Raz’s return in that short piece…


#3311

They have in the AFL article


#3312

I thought it sounded like a very recent appointment so probably hasn’t had time to have an impact yet


#3313

Can’t wait to see this thread explode if he goes down in the second quarter with “soreness” in the VFL


#3314

Will we see him back in the seniors at all this year?


#3315

This is certainly not what I was expecting when I was told he was sore a few weeks ago.


#3316

The last time he was fit was the 30th of July 2017 verses the WB.
18 disp. 2 goal game, which followed a 4 goal game against North.

Fast approaching 10 months since we have seen him run with freedom.


#3317

the team doesn’t feel the same without Raz.
Really miss him


#3318

Just stay in the VFL mate!

You are too silky to play for Essendon.


#3319

Hang with his good mate kyle.


#3320

I like Fanta.

He was giving instructions and encouragement to the players from the dugout throughout the first half and was actually showing a lot of leadership.

He comes across as a bit of a jokester but he’s a real pro.

I see him and a few other players at most VFL games which is more than I can say for some other high profile players.


#3321

Fantasia was either ruled unfit or he plays AFL - A baffling decision.


#3322

In that case, your position is that any 1-22 player on an AFL list returning from a 4 week groin injury should never play VFL.
I would have thought the fact he only played the second half was quite revealing.


#3323

Golf is alluring.


#3324

He will make a huge difference to our AFL forward line: pace, pressure, class and arsse.


#3325

Groin injury.
4 weeks out.
Half a game in the twos.
Wet and cold and windy.
The Joe fiasco.
You could mount a case for a no show.
