    AFLW Premiers 2018




    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.

    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed. And I said "Obie, I don't think I
    Can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. " He said, "Shut up, kid.
    Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    I thought Cordy was very average this year, although he was pushed into playing a kPP role which didn't suit him. He is more a 3rd tall in the backline.

    Overall, I totally agree with Buckenera, they have been my thoughts throughout the last two years.

    What part of Cordy's game weren't you happy with?

    His contested defence loss percentage was 25% in 2018, exactly the same as Alex Rance.

    He's never going to be an elite intercept marker or high possession winner, he just needs to defend. Like you say he should be playing on the third tall as much as possible as he doesn't have the size for the gorillas.

    I wonder if he just isnt tall or heavy enough to just be the brute defensively.

    I view him as needing to continue to develop his intercept ability and his kicking - it may never be classical but it can be highly effective at distributing and getting us going again.

    Just looking at his games overall for the year, he wasn't outstanding, that is why I used the term average. The reason I put forward is also in my post. I have my opinion, and others have theirs.

    If that one on one stat is true that is amazingly good, especially considering Cordy would spend a truck load more time on forwards than Rance would’ve!

    I was asking your opinion, not questioning it. I still am unclear what aspect of Cordys game you think was very average?

    To me very average = poor, take out the very and the meaning changes somewhat.

    I thought he did his job, but was nothing outstanding. Hope that is clear.

    He is not a KPP, but we had to play him as one due to circumstances. I don't believe he and Morris can play in the same team, but he is the ready replacement.

    As clear as mud!

    What part of his game was average? Some examples might include his ability to defend, ability to get off his man, etc.

    Bevo can come up with a good game plan for us so it's all about getting this list fit and focused.
    Actually think there are a few positives not mentioned. Bevo is still a very young coach and we got another year of experience into him. He will continue to get better. Pretty excited about our list, especially Billy Gowers. If he keeps improving, going to be an absolute boss up in the forward line. I'm glad the article didn't delve too much into the 'party boy' issue.
    Kicking accuracy continues to haunt us. Will 2019 be the year we try to end this hoodoo?
