#18 Michael Hurley


#9863

There was a sense that he was really battling to hold one grab marks. Towards the end of the game they were beginning to stick. Hope that builds confidence for him.


#9864

Does his best work in greasy or wet conditions.


#9865

Theres a joke about Hungry Jacks here somewhere but i just cant make it.


#9866

At half time I was ready to trade hurls. His game was uncontested rubbish. Second half turnaround was impressive but that’s the std he should be at.


#9867

The last time Mick experienced something as wet and greasy, he was ankle deep in a taxi driver


#9868

Can he PLEASE stop asking for the handball from a player having a set shot from 50, because he is forced to kick under pressure from 55 out, and I am almost certain he has failed on the last dozen attempts with that play.

The fact that it was Raz this time who is nailing the majority of his shots from 50, makes it worse.

It’s low percentage, and infuriating that he isn’t learning the lesson !


#9869

They could always just not give it to him.
In reality all he is doing is offering an option.


#9870

He’s a senior player, and younger players will always give him the ball in that instance if they have a kick from distance.

Therefore, I want him to realise after the last 10 or so failed attempts (most of which were not even close), that he isn’t doing the team any favours calling for them.

Raz would have been 50/50 from that set shot.
Hurley is 10/90 from a running shot from 55 with the man on the mark, plus other chasing players applying pressure.


#9871

I said this the other day, has he ever actually kicked one of these? I’m amazed he is still asking for the ball in this situation. Must be something like 0 - 20 when he does this.


#9872

He’s living off this one.


#9873

Yep, and the left foot one against Adelaide 2014 at Etihad.


#9874

Damn i love that goal.


#9875

round 22 2009, AKA the game that turned the next 4 years of hurleys career into a complete and utter waste.


#9876

Trade Hurley?

Drop him for Franga?

Pls blitz.


#9877

THE BEAR IS BACK


#9878

He’s back. All credit to him, he showed me, he showed the doubters.


#9879

12 disposals and probably in top 3 best on ground. Shows that disposals don’t mean everything


#9880

Gun.


#9881

Sweet damn it was great to see the real Michael Hurley tonight!


#9882

There he is
