#5 Devon Smith - Best and Fairest


#1604

Trade him for his own good


#1605

Can he coach?


#1606

I know it’s been said many times but i can’t help but laugh about the fact that this guy COULDN’T GET A GAME IN THE GIANTS MIDFIELD and yet he is the BEST MIDFIELDER at Essendon


#1607

That’s got nothing to do with the GWS coach’s sand everything to do with how ■■■■ out midfield is.


#1608

Yea, that’s the point i’m trying to make…


#1609

make him the captain. And our soft you know whats who were upset by him trying to hard during pre-season can head for the door.

Let’s get a standard in the joint. Just 1!


#1610

I like the idea of him being Vice Captain or highly ranked in the leadership group next year then potentially taking over a year or two later, gives him time to earn the respect from the playing group, lead the way in a preseason and show the guys what it takes to be apart of the club. Essentially everything Heppell seems to be lacking at the moment. He will be a best and fairest player by then too.


#1611

I genuinely feel sorry for him playing in this crappola.


#1612

This guy is the only player earning the respect of the fans at the moment and he backs it up week after week.


#1613

This guy is a classic example of the sort of effort you can give even when surrounded by garbage.

Would happily give this guy the captaincy right now


#1614

Having an absolute crack but we recruited him and he came here because he wants to be a top line mid. He’s averaging slightly more disposals than he did at gws. For us to improve this year we needed him to turn into a player that impacted the game with 25-30 disposal, not 20 with 15 tackles. Whist some players can impact with 20, l don’t think he has. He has been the most solid and consistent of our mids, has put in the most effort of all of them but l’m not as bullish on his performances as everyone else on here.


#1615

poor ■■■■■■■


#1616

would happily drop everyone and have Devon play by himself each week for the rest of the year


#1617

Yeah I don’t know if this is typical angry Blitzin’ but right now if they announced that he’d be captain next year I’d be thrilled.


#1618

if it said next week i’d buy a Guernsey with the 5 on the back right now.

he and conor are basically my only reasons for watching right now.


#1619

You’re obviously unaware of ORAZIO


#1620

why? hes just gonna ping a hammy any minute now.


#1621

He can’t rack up 25 because he’s too busy chasing everyone else’s opponents for them!

Legit carrying this side atm.


#1622

Same same carrying for 15 years
Hird, Jobe, Zerrett


#1623

If he didn’t bother tackling like the rest of the midfield then he would probably rack up a few more. Or maybe he can sit at half back and chip it back to Hurley a few times.
If the rest of the team showed his fkn spirit and we still lost no one would give a FK.
I don’t understand this club.
