also on long he IMO he like a few rare players will always never shine in the VFL to varying degrees.
He like tippa, like Rioli from richmond are moreso impact players who should be there to apply pressure.
Tippa had had more impact in the vfl sure, but lets not forget he was going to walk away 2 years ago cos he wasn’t progressing to where he wanted to, and probably without the 12 being suspended, we be lost to our side for good.
Now ?? would anyone want him out of the side ?
Similar to rioli from richmond you hear how the players were happy for him after saturdays game cos he finally got reward for the effort that know and acknowledge he puts in, despite the outside noise about not doing enough or getting the ball enough.
You get long into the seniors and just play him (providing he is doing all that pressure stuff) and just leave him there, he could turn into a player IMO.
But if people are expecting him to get 30 odd disposals a week for 10 weeks before they even remotely think about picking him from the vfl level, then you’re dreaming cos it’ll never happen.
He is an impact player who gets lost in transition of a inferior comeptition with less skilled players and less structure, and less predictable team mates and outputs etc etc.
