    Great article. I hope our fans understand the finer points of what Bevo is saying about Trav. I've already heard it's a bad trade unless he kicks 4 a week, and it does my head in already. If he's taking the best defender and has a zone defender near him, then guys like Stringer can get off the hook (see 20 touches, 4 goals last game) and Boyd, Crammers & Dicko. Not to mention he covers a lot of territory and is a big upgrade on the role Cordy played which in turn allows Zaine to go back into defence and hone his trade and learn from Wood, Morris, Boyd & Boyd and become a very, very player.
    Matty Boyd Career highlights:

    Captain: 2011-2013 - Night Premiership Side: 2010 - Premiership side: 2016 - Charles Sutton Medal: 2009, 2011, 2012 - All Australian team: 2009, 2011, 2016 - International Rules Series: 2008, 2010 - AFL Life Member - Western Bulldogs Life Member - Record Games Played by a Rookie - 8th Most Games Played for Footscray/Western Bulldogs - 66th Most Goals Kicked for Footscray Western Bulldogs - Most Finals Won by any Footscray/Western Bulldogs Player

    Spot on BT.
    It's not about how many goals he kicks each week that proves his worth to us picking him up.
    His contested marking,having the 2nd or 3rd best opp. defender taken away from one of Dicko,Stringer,Boyd and Crammers at various times.
    His massive tank endurance,pinch hitting in the ruck.
    We're not relying on Clokey to kick min 3 goals or more to get us over the line each week like the Filth were.
    He just has to play the role that Bevo wants him to do each week.
