JS: So coach, how am I going?

JW: Excellent question! I guess you’ve got to figure out what level you want to be at.

JS: Well, I’d like to be at a level where I win a Brownlow without putting in any effort…

JW: Ummm… as long you’re playing at the level that you expect. The positive is that you’ve identified a great opportunity to make something your trademark.

JS: Sweet!


#2355

Just wait til he breaks from the centre and slams through his 5th on ANZAC Day!!!


#2356

Ooops… old draft post from Feb


#2357

LOL HOW DO WE FIX JAKE STRINGER?

GET A DECENT TEAM AROUND HIM YOU ■■■■■■■ IDIOTS

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH JAKE STRINGER EXCEPT THAT HE IS SURROUNDED BY HEARTLESS PEA EFFORT FUCKSTICKS


#2358

How he is in the firing line when our captain can’t kick, our dual AA key defender hasn’t won a contest all year, Myers is Myers, Zaharakis still turns the ball over as much as he has for the past decade?

Easy soft target.


#2359

agree, the focus on stringer is astounding. heaps are putting in equally, if not moreso uninspired, poor performances.


#2360

At least he’s mad multiple games with multiple goals. Can he play better? Of course. But for ■■■■■ sake, focus on the root causes


#2361

Dane Swan always looked like he should have shed a few kilos ,Stringer the same body shape?


#2362

We are good at scapegoating. AFL 101 scapegoating - blaming, turn a blind eye and nfi.


#2363

Swan could run for days and then some. Big difference.


#2364

Vague report on CH10 news that Jake has been sent for scans. No other details.


#2365

Agree 100%


#2366

Was mentioned in Crows injury update video has back sorness so went for scans


#2367

I hate this project player tag

He’s a very, very talented AA player who is a very, very good player. At worst, he should be producing reasonably solid footy no matter his role. He’s not a 18 year old skinny kid from the draft, he’s a AA premiership player


#2368

This is exactly what I said to @Reboot and he called me an angry man.


#2369

All the underperforming players are slowly being weeded out of the side under the guise of an injury.


#2370

If he was a 24 year old AA premiership player producing reasonably solid football he wouldn’t have “left” his club. He is very, very talented and he was a very, very good player.

Of all the things to expect given the situation, I would think that grinding out solid performances even if he’s out of form would be among the least likely options.


#2371

At his worst he’s atrocious, he’s always been like that, it won’t change over 1 pre-season.


#2372

If getting him back to his best form wasn’t a long term project, then he might be still at the dogs.


#2373

I reckon that was about 10% of the reason he was walked out of that joint
