#17 James Stewart


#2589

Brown and Smack are making him work very hard for it.

It’s nice to have genuine depth in the team for a change.


#2590

Anyone know why he didn’t play?


#2591

Not selected?


#2592

You’d have to think he’s a fair chance of moving on. If he can’t get a game with Smack & JD out & when we were obviously crying out for a forward target then he has to be thinking his future is elsewhere. I seem to remember a rumour earlier in the year that he was wanting out & it seemed to coincide with his form slump & dropping from the team.


#2593

Didn’t play VFL


#2594

Nope


#2595

I’m worried that you’re right. Disappointing because key forwards with his size and attributes don’t come along very often. Could have used him yesterday.


#2596

Stewart does have to work his game big time of hes going to into the seniors again next year.

Not agressive enough,and not overly strong over head.


#2597

Wanting out after 2 seasons? Can’t imagine anyone is that soft


#2598

What about of “didn’t play VFL this weekend either” did you miss in the last 24 hours?


#2599

Has all the tools to make it…

as a defender


#2600

After what he has gone through and his praise for Essendon giving him his chance I very much doubt he is planning on going anywhere, and the rumours would be bullcrap imo. Players are not like supporters, they don’t mope around much, they focus on what is required and work towards it.


#2601

Has his position in the seniors been taken by Brown or Stringer?

He’s definitely not a contested KP forward like McKernan or Joe, he does his best work leading abit further away from the goal square.

Honestly dont know with him, all things equal I probably prefer him over Brown but the form isn’t there.


#2602

Does his best work as 3rd tall with JD and (Hooker Brown Smack??) @ CHF.

I can see him coming back in when Joey does, … or o/wise, … after he’s done a fair bit of work on his game.

If he does, … and with another pre season into those shoulders, … he may well wind up holding down CHF himself.


#2603

Stewart’s worse games are almost the equal to Brown’s best games when you look at stat’s.


#2604

Worsfold disagrees


#2605

Hes got the frame and size for it that’s for sure, would have to have the most physically imposing physique of anyone at the club.

Wish he played like it.


#2606

Agreed. He put on a shitload of size over the last off season across the chest and shoulders, … if he does similarly this one, he’ll be a fkn Ape!!


#2607

Which just strengthens the argument that quite often stats mean fark all. They have pretty much bugga all to do with why he’s playing magoos rather than ones.


#2608

If you could teach him to play more like Guelfi, he’d be a champion.

Does anyone think there is any chance Stewart can bridge the Guelf?
