Best 22 2019 - Round 1


#623

Nah, he’s ok but he’s not known for his speed like Saad or McKenna.


#624

I think he’s taking the ■■■■ about Ambrose.
I don’t think Guelfi is super quick either. I’d guess he’s faster than Parish and Zaharakis but he’d be well behind the quick blokes on that list.
I’m not saying that Parish, Zaha or Guelfi are slow, they’re just average


#625

Anyone want to have a go at ranking all the players from fastest to slowest?


#626

Cue Chris and Champion data.


#627

Meh, give or take.
Say - over 50m

Saad
Fanta
Mozzie
Oirish
Walla
McGrath
Ham
Shiel
Smith
Ambrose
Guelfi
Zaka
JoeDan
Parish
Gleeson
Redman
Laverde
Merret
Francis
Langers
Begley
Baguley
Stringer
Houlahan
Stewart
Ridley
Dlarke
Mutch
Myers
Heppell
Zerk
Gown
Smack
Zlarke
Brown
Hooksey
Belly


#628

Now rank them by height using The Hangar lawn scale.


#629

Champion Data would use an algorithm that proved Heppell, Belly, and Hooker were the fastest players at the club, based on a “contextual modal synthesis that accounts for differentials in the 50 metres and relative speed over the last two years”


#630

I said I doubt it - is that really making judgement?

My doubt was simply based on the fact he only played a handful of games in 3 seasons, and the likes of Mutch and Ridley already went past him. Goddard was an elite kick. If Redman had an elite kick, why didn’t he get a game before the aforementioned players? Cos someone else already had occupied his role, just like Goddard and Hurley were keeping Francis from getting a game?


#631

Ridley is an elite kick :man_shrugging:


#632

But what was his role, didn’t he play on wing/HBF? Do you see him as one of our main distributors of the pill?


#633

He’s not Goddard and he’s never going to be Goddard but he’s comfortably got what it takes to be a good AFL player. Competitive, agressive, dynamic. Good size, reads it well, good kick, moves well.

He won’t be the main distributor (5 games…), but his role will be rebounding off half back. Along with Hurley Saad and others.


#634

Redman’s kicking against Brisbane and West Coast was outstanding.


#635

Exactly, while Francis and Heppell will probably be the main distributors.


#636

A better explanation.


#637

Heppell? Yeah nah.


#638

He is sorta, imo, even though he doesn’t have the best kick.


#639

On the first day of Tippamas, EFC game to me

A Parish in a Tayte Pears tree.


#640

Two contest shoves

And a Parish in a Pears tree.


#641

He’s our most used inside midfielder. How is he a half back rebounder, aside from the fact that he gets the ball everywhere on the ground?


#642

He ends up doing a bit of that because he just works himself so ■■■■■■ hard but yep. He’s not.
