Former #32 Travis Colyer


#1542

Who wouldn’t, but no one will pay that for Trav.


#1543

It sure he is going to get many games next year. Going to be very tough for Trav in the midfield.


#1544

Trav needs to get a very firm grip on a 2018 list spot


#1545

And a firm grip on more of the footy, how to kick it properly and which direction he would like to zig-zag towards.


#1546

The first thing I want Colyer to work on over the off-season is being able to pick a ball up, at pace, without fumbling it completely or taking 3 attempts to pick it up. We’ll work from there.


#1547

There inlies the debatelable bit.
was it a purple patch or was it what you say ?

plently of players have said patches and never play like it again. yes he was banned. and so fourth.
Hepp played games similar to his best.
Ditto hurley, hooker well he played alright in a new possie, belly recaptured his form.

coyler (and others) didn’t, so it would come down to a do people believe he will re capture it, or not ?

It doesn’t look like it’d be needed now anyway, but if it did, I would have gladly traded him out.


#1548

It’s the thinking ahead before the skill execution. It’s why he duffs his kicks so often as well.

Pick up ball first. Then decide where to dispose of it.

Watch the ball & take care of drop onto your foot before looking up at the target again.

All rushed. No composure

Should really be no excuse on his kicking or picking ball up since he so short. Ball drop distance is fark all.


#1549

One thing to remember is that in the one final we played this year he didn’t actually fumble at all.


#1550

Nor did he before the compulsory holiday …


#1551

I reckon he has always been a serial fumbler.

Games where he is clean are the outlier, not the norm.


#1552

Agree, when it’s hot he fumbles…
Spends it before he has it…
Not in our best 22 anymore


#1553

Classic example of a confidence player.


#1554

He could be in the Antarctic and he would still fumble


#1555

Doesn’t lower his centre of gravity to collect, just bends downs which means he isn’t as balanced and snatches at. Good players get low early with soft hands and let the ball find theit hands if that makes sense


#1556

He missed a season and a half of footy and came back below his best, which is understandable. I’d back him to be cleaner off the deck next year and if he is, will easily be best 22. If he isn’t, we have plenty of players who’d be happy to grab his spot.


#1557

Do you want to end world peace too while he’s at it?


#1558

He could at least try to end the conflicts in the Middle East…


#1559

We have world peace?

He’s better than me at footy, and most of you I’ll wager. I’m backing the EFC coaching panel. Yess
