if only things worked out so neatly in real life, not the essendon bubble that magic fairyland exists in in the above.
Yeah hooker can just stay forward til he’s past it, then can just move back to probably an even harder position, just cos he’s passed it as a forward.
schache having spent 2 years in the vfl magically ends up a powerhouse forward in the afl, and we come off wining our 5th premiership in a row, just cos.
I get that you’re being optimistic however if they get this kid, surely surely hooker goes back straight away and he comes in for rd 1, all things being equal.
Daniher didn’t get to the point he is by sticking him in the vfl til he was ready.
theoretically with a better list the brisbane, the kids talents of aletheticism and accurate goal kicking would be better ultilised in the afl.
I’m not for getting him, i’m guessing the fact fog keeps hinting at it, it’s a big possibility he’ll land at efc.
but imo would be a waste to sit him in the vfl for 2 years, just like when they play under 18, they won’t learn to outbody afl men playing in lesser leagues.
you stick em in the deep end and hope they swim.
getting a tall, and maybe stringer, you simply can’t afford to leave hooker forward. it becomes pointless and less efficient.
