David Myers breakout year.


#2652

And I was one of them. Good on you David, I hope it is a break out year for you.


#2653

its one game. he needs to back it up next week, and the week after that, and the week after that, etc etc etc.


#2654

David Myers just casually pulls out another fork, and continues his AFL career.

If he can keep getting under the packs, he gets to keep his spot. Goals were a pleasant bonus, but obviously not going to be commonplace.


#2655

Most of us knew he could play and particularly fill a gap for us, but the speed and degree of the turnaround in form was surprising. If only he could get a season free of injury.


#2656

I think the more important “if” is, “if he can do this for 5 rounds in a row without becoming a complete non-entity”


#2657

Or getting injured


#2658

Champion Data says that was Myers career best game. Best player in the team according to them.
Well done.


#2659

If you think this will be a standard for the rest of the year, you’re setting yourself, and Myers, up for a fall. He will have good games, and some not so good ones. Whether averaged out he’s worth the inclusion over others, everything considered, is the decision to be made. Don’t put him on a pedestal after yesterday, or spit on him when he has a bad game.


#2660

It’s his breakout game


#2661

but how well did he protect the kids!?


#2662

Well isn’t that the summary of Myers’ career, right there.


#2663

I mean really what can we expect he’s just a kid. He’ll be prone to fluctuating in and out of games.


#2664

Happy with that, or do you want to expand on it a little?


#2665

■■■■ take alert.


#2666

he has to be pushing 25 disposals a week for the rest of the year. we can’t afford him to regress to 15-20, not after all this time and his age. other wise we’re better giving the recent draftees a shot to do the same.


#2667

Only kicked multiple goals once in his career before yesterday


#2668

Well, he has been played a lot of a HBF.
