    The Busta Beazer Goalkicking Leaderboard 2024

    Welcome to the 2024 Busta Beazer Leaderboard. This is the weekly goalkicking thread named after all time and 7 time leading goalkicker and Team of the Century superstar Simon Beasley.

    Each week we will honour a goal kicking great as we update the leaderboard throughout the season. The inaugural winner of the Buster Beazer Award in 2023 was Astro Naughton with 44 goals. In 2nd place was Jamarra with 35. 3rd place went to Flea with 34. In 4th place was the Lobbster with 24 and the Bont with 19 rounded out the top 5

    For further details on last year?s leaderboard and the honoured greats here is the thread started by eminent poster Go Dogs

    https://www.woof.net.au/forum/showth...-in-2023/page9

    So everyone,

    Who will be our leading goalkicker in 2024 and take out the Busta Beazer Award?

    Who will break into the top 5?

    Who will surprise us all and kick a bag of 5+?

    Feel free to make a fearless prediction!

    I think Jamarra with 57 will win it. Flea 2nd with 46 and Astro in 3rd with 40.

    Sam Darcy to break into the top 5 with 21 and he will kick a bag against lolNorf

    Vandermeer to do an Anthony Scott and kick 3 in a game!!

    I voted Marra. I want to see what Johno’s influence on goal kicking is before fearless predictions. I hope Sanders plays right away as it reads/seems like his entry kicking is top shelf.

    Marra has the potential to be a highly skilled goal kicker. His field kicking over summer has been impressive and if Johnson can add something to his technique or approach then he could easily be our most potent forward.

    I think if he hits his ceiling, he’s comfortably our best player after Bont soon. A long contract would make me very happy.

    Going with Marra. He knows where, when and how to lead, is a beautiful mark, and is fitter and stronger this year.

    If he fixes his accuracy he will win the Coleman!

    I am sticking with Astro, I think he still has a big presences in the forward line and will be hard not to spot him out.

    I know we lost the Pies game last year and he suffered from inaccuracy in front of goal, but it was incredible watching him absolutely towel up Moore. And not because Moore didn?t defend well, I actually thought he played his role brilliantly, it?s just JUH was too much to handle. I expect more of that this year

    What's a presentences?
    They say Burt Lancaster has one, but I don't believe them.

    I'm just going off the training reports but Cody has to be a chance to go berserk in a game and kick 7 this year.
    I went with Naughton but it's guess. Have we every had a potentially more potent forward line?

    I’ve voted for JUH too.

    I think he’s primed to get more shots on goal than the others with his increased workrate and my expectation Naughton will drift further afield. If the accuracy is addressed too, he’s a shoe in.

    I’m all in on Weightman this season.

    He will kick some bags but also consistently hit the scoreboard and is our most reliable in front of goal.
    More of an In Bruges guy?

    That proposes another interesting question - who will kick the biggest individual bag in a game this year? Maybe Cody will go newer as you say, but Marra I think will be leading goalkicker.
