#36 Michael Hartley


#1801

He will learn and build more core strength. 37 games bro


#1802

His best is pretty friggin good, he hasn’t played his best in over 12 months though.

I actually rate Hooker back him forward, booming kick on him, much more accurate and is a fair clunker of the footeyball


#1803

The problem is we’ve been spoiled by Hurley, Hooker and Fletch.

KPD are quite often pretty average, you have 1 decent and a couple of at best bit players. Hartley is on par with a lot of other key backs in the league.


#1804

And what were Blitzers saying about these three champions when they’d each played only 37 games ?


#1805

Well, considering my age:

Hooker at 37 games: Trade him for Caddy I think. Glad I got that wrong.
Hurley at 37 games: Kids a gun, future of the club. Got that one right.
Fletcher at 37 games: Maybe a simple go bombers, but at 18 months-2 years old hard to recall.

You are also a BabyBomber I see!

Great game by Harts. He and Brown were excellent.


#1809

Hello 2016’s Michael Hartley.


#1810

Yeah, best game he’s played in a long time. More of that, less panicked jumper holding.

Well done Harts.


#1811

Played well. Took some grabs, spoiled when he needed too and was prepared to peel off his man required.

More of that please.


#1812

It was very much a continuation of his upward swing during last week’s VFL game.

Easily responsible for the 12 points we won by.


#1813

Love how he got stuck into that Adelaide player who collected Brown. Angry.


#1814

Round 1 : C+ Encouraging signs. Will be watching closely to see if he can consistently maintain that level of performance.

Honestly… how significant would Hartley be for us f he could play to the level we all hope and dream that he could.


#1815

first year player tho, essendon bullying…


#1816

Hang on, yaco was just saying that Harts was the luckiest player ever cause he only gets games because of injuries??


#1817

Was shocked at how well he played.

More of that please Michael!


#1818

I don’t know where that Michael Hartley has been, but I’m glad he turned up tonight. Was absolutely fantastic. Looked like the Hartley of 2016 but with much better marking


#1819

His field kicking is awesome and the bit of agro he’s showing is what’s needed.
