Yeah agree with all of that, good analysis.

What’s your current take on his kicking? A lot of his strengths (marking, endurance, reading of the play) can be negated if he’s not hitting targets once he gets the ball.


#3485

He’s kicking like ■■■■ right now.

Deep, thoughtful analysis, huh?


#3486

He went to ground on a few occasions yesterday when he shouldn’t have and coughed up a few but otherwise he was pretty good


#3487

Yup.

He’s just… good!

The only stats that matter: number 2 (back and sides), number 4 on top


#3489

Dude sounds like he’s speaking from experience which is a bit weird


#3490

I think Hepp is still getting comfortable finding his level between on-field leader and pure player. Sometimes, when this is not 100% instinctive, the mind can go into little freezes. It needs to get to the stage when he can instinctively lead without looking inwards so that his mind will free up to play as he can play.


#3491

It’s funny how so many posters talk about our future best 4 or 5 mids and always leave out Hepp. He’ll be a gun for at least another 5 years. If we somehow end up with 4 or 5 better mids then him we’ll really be laughing


#3492

What’s his strength? He’s a f*cking competitor. That’s why he’s in and under contests, it’s why yesterday he had 5 clearances, it’s why he had 13 contested possessions, it’s why he’s a good intercept mark (often backing into a contest in doing so) and it’s why he’s the captain.

No doubt his kicking is a bit shonky right now but his confidence in it will come back.


#3493

Why is that?


#3494

Why will his kicking improve? Practice and games. He can appear laconic, but he is driven to succeed. Don’t let the hair style fool you.


#3495

If we achieve nothing else this year can we PLEASE stop using this word out of context!


#3496

Please


#3497

All these laconic comments are driving me crazy.


#3498

I got 3 years of laconic use built up after ryder left.


#3499

Wouldn’t “Laconic Comment” be an Oxymoron? @Alan_Noonan_10


#3500

How’s this -
All these commentuos laconities are driving me crazy.

#3502

Yes
