I don’t know how many Blitzers have ever made it to the top level of football - or even the top 5 levels - but I’d say most have had a go at playing the game, or at least imagined themselves doing so.
So, if you were an AFL player, what type would you be? Who specifically would you be like?
The key here is honesty. I’ll start.
I can kick set shots really friggin well, even now I kick 9 out of 10 from anywhere inside 40. Problem is, Im not tall, I can’t mark and I’m not quick. So forward line is out.
I can do all 1%ers, spoil, tackle, sheppard, and I’m strong enough to tag. But by strong I mean I can tackle well, not that I’m, well, brave. So midfield is out.
This leaves me as a half back. A slow, short stepping half back who can kick well.
Essentially, I’d be Andrew Welsh with Bachar Houli’s kicking skills and bravery.
