    "He's playing one season too many" 2017 edition

    Thread inspired by discussion of Bourgoyne in the Rd 4 thread.

    Who else?

    Matt Boyd may be heading this way.

    Josh Gibson looks completely cooked.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Not much of an achievement I'm afraid. But anyway, he's often getting caught when once he wouldn't. He's no longer a one touch player. He fumbles, takes too long to make decisions, and does a lot of grunt in and under work making up for his own errors. It was apparent when Bont ran rings around him last year. Watch hodge closely and you'll see what I mean.

    Stevie J looks slower than ever.

    Thats very different from he is a useless player now which seems to be the call for Burgoyne and Gibson.

    A few weeks ago when he was chasing his 500th career goal he was making plenty of ground. The weird thing was the GWS burned him every time. He'd be in acres of space on the lead and the ball carrier would go for someone else. Stevie was not happy.

    I don't think it is ideal for Hodge to be having to play inside mid at his age. Ideally he'd be on a back flank patrolling - but he seems to be on ball a lot due to necessity. But I think he's playing a fair way above the 'played one too many seasons' category. If anything, I think Hawthorn will need him to consider playing on again next year to help bring through the younger players, and soften the landing a bit on their massive fall.

    He's had 80 possessions in 3 matches. Plenty of players would loved to be cooked like that!
