#25 Jake Stringer

You are a massive flog. I was referring to last year he gained weight from his bulldogs days and the written reports this year that he hadn’t trimmed down or improved his fitness. That’s the first photo I’ve seen of him this pre season so looks to have trimmed down from last year which is good and what you would expect if trying to increase cardio fitness.


#3679

You kept saying “does” - present tense. And never mentioned 2017.

Apology accepted.


#3680

I am Stringer. No, l am Stringer. I am Stringer. And so am l, etc.


#3681

This is your James hird dressed up as Ozzie Osborne moment.


#3682

And I’m Stringer’s wife!

no…wait…


#3683

… are there photos of this?


#3684

Yes


#3685

What made that was the “look again” for about 3 pages after it was pointed out.

Stole Stringer-Guelfi kerfuffle to start today’s training thread.


#3688

As there has been a little discussion around Stringer and his performance I thought I would compare his career against our budding young superstar considering they are of the same age and draft year.

I am a huge fan of both players but I was a little surprised to see that Jake has arguably got the chocolates to this stage of their careers. Slightly different players though of course.

Glad we have both players.


#3689

Not sure that’s the case. I’d call it pretty much dead square myself, all tolled.


#3690

It’s pretty close I would say.

Stringer has a flag so ultimately history will hold him in higher regard even though it is a team award and not an individual accomplishment.


#3691

And, without wanting to state the obvious, played in a much better team/system than JoeDan has had the opportunity to. Both guns, one temporarily holstered, the other still getting used to a new slinger.


#3692

Personally I rate Stringers best individual year higher because it came in a flag year.

He was incredible that year and Dogs would not have won it without him.


#3693

didnt he get dropped that year?


#3694

Not comparable. Totally different players. That’s like comparing Saad and Gleeson. Play in the same part of the ground, have the same general aims, but use different methods of achieving them.


#3695

Yeah, my memory is fading already.

He was indeed dropped.


#3696

He was good the year before he won the flag


#3697

He was good in the flag year too.
