#21 Dyson "Good Onya Guys" Heppell

I’m sure the coaches would find somewhere, even if he wasn’t captain, he’d be damn near first picked every week.

The guy is an absolute jet of a footballer.


#4769

Well that’s interesting.

I’ve thought that he wouldn’t be suited to a wing because he lacks pace, and doesn’t have the elite footskills.

I like him in the centre because he can win his fair share of clearances, and has assets that kill most other inside mids around the ground.


#4770

Not all wingman need to be brad Hill. Hepp knows how to find the ball. And he’s an amazing one on one player. I’m not saying play him exclusively on the wing but if he gets more minutes there as part of the rotation it does suit his strengths even if he has an unusual athletic profile for a traditional wingmen


#4771

His strength is in the contest and in traffic. He’s our best player at that.


#4772

for mine that is his biggest weakness. If he can fix that up he could very well become one of the best players in the comp. He has everything else imo


#4773

agree 100%. His marking is a massive strength, has vice like hands. Very courageous too, stands under the high ball and never flinches


#4774

I think so, in the short term, anyway.

Long term, I think he’ll be real good, but I don’t expect him to be one of our best mids in 2019.
Has too many to overtake (Hepp shiel smith Zerrett Zaha). I could see him overtaking Langford, Myers & Parish.


#4775

I don’t think this can be true because there’s just not anyone on our list who works as hard as he does.
He gets the ball not because of selfishness, or seniority, but because he presents, and presents, and presents.


#4776

he can be in the contest and traffic WHEN HE BRINGS HIS ■■■■■■■ SIDE STEP BACK.


#4777

The comment you quoted was a seriously poor comment.


#4778

Got a call from Hepp yesterday. I said hi Dois, but he just talked over the top of me.


#4779

If only he was on the phone I’d have said to him to worry about winning a final for the first time in 15 years before you start trying to flog off guaranteed grand final tickets


#4780

Yeah you tell that slacker


#4781

He’ll be an even better leader this year.
He’s just doing his job. That thank you for the membership was nice but don’t so much appreciate the club using him to squeeze more cash out of us.


#4782

Less time spruiking memberships, more time practicing kicking Dyson.


#4783

And why would we be Kicking Dois?? Is this that thing about the hair again?? :smirk:


#4784

I think that’s Hird’s influence as a player and a captain.

Hepp still hasn’t peaked imo, still think he’ll shake the brownlow one year.


#4785

Im sure he was pulled straight out of training to man the phones


#4786

Could work on his marking a little also


#4787

Needs to trim his hair too, make it a little more conservative.
