Morton or Toumpas

Recommended Posts

The footage of after the game, you could tell this meant a lot to Jimmy, lot's of little fist pumps to himself, he was pumped up.

I know it sounds corny, but I just felt really good for him. He has had a bad time of it, and to be involved in a big win and play a major role in it, you could see the confidence growing. And his confidence had looked completely shot to pieces in previous games.

I agree with your sentiment here. Look at his reaction after his second kick was finally paid a goal. The game was long over by then but you could tell he was thrilled with a "Yes, I've finally done it!!" thought.

Long way to go for him, as he needs to play near this level on a consistent basis. But I'm happy for him.

Cale morton had blinders!??

Bahaha now i have heard it all

Morton most certainly had blinders. He had 22 touches and 2 goals in his 3rd game at Kardinia Park, 26 and 3 against the Bombers the same year. 37 against the Dogs in 2009. He fell away quickly after that but your memory must be pretty short mate. Morton looked very good early on.

He is a nice lad but simply does not have any mongrel in him. Will be moved on along with Grimes who just doesn't have the natural ability to fire up!

oh, just wait til he loses his virginity, & grows whiskers :)

Go to 1:14... Toump putting his body on the line in defensive 50 and getting flattened in the process. Great courage and more proof hat the fools that allude to him being timid are clowns.

Your being way too kind calling them clowns.

If it was up to me id say to them.... nah better not..

Not sure why people open a thread to say crap thread? Do these same people walk into stores they don't like to say 'crap store?' Or visit newspaper companies they don't like to say 'crap newspaper'?

Some people need to get a life

That said ToumpAs game yesterday was the first semi solid game he has played and he definitely showed a bit. I'm hopeful he can now string a couple more together and really cement himself in starting 22 and look dangerous to the opposition.

glad you recognise that.

The title of the thread may be interpreted that toumpas is doomed to follow the same path that morton took - which many disagree with.

More like if I'm reading a newspaper and there's a crap Damien Barrett article about the Dees then I will let everyone in the vicinity know this is a crap article. Or more likely post a stfu Barrett somewhere.

You are Damien Barrett in this analogy.

Was comparing the output of our past 2 #4 draft picks and progression/how they tracked when put side to side.

A lot of people compare Toumpas next to Wines though I think it makes more sense to compare him against a player taken at the same pick and then developed at the same club.

A lot of people just like trawling thread to thread having huge sooks about threads (not mentioning any names) then contributing to the actual conversation.

This thread is like the Kramer -" it is a loathesome, offensive post. Yet I can't look away."

I think players mature and develop at their own pace so I think it makes senses to compare him to no one except himself. Compare next weeks efforts to last weeks effort.

Don't take it out on me that you have dumb opinions.

Putting it very kindly there too.

I still have a sneaking suspicion there is more to it than that, though.

This thread was always bound for glory...

I just want to say that Toump was impressive on the weekend, and I truly hope he continues to produce the goods and prove the haterz wrong.

irrelevant now, as we don't have wines we have toumpas.

man, watching macrae and stringer running around for the dogs has me hoping he can become a very good player; he was rated as a top 2 player for a long time.

his form of late has been very good tho, so here's hoping he keeps coming on.

I think it stands as a warning to all others, that posts of rampant stupidity will be remembered for a long long time.

It's a stupid thread, Stu, but that's OK. I'll champion the rights of idiots to have a voice.

Look, I'm engaging you.

Yes, but shouldn't you allow others to determine who are the crass and clueless ? People do have the ability to think for themselves.

I'm sure any over the top post would be deleted.

image upload no limit

Eyes went straight to the player and didn't read the stuff above - couldn't work out why this player looked familiar...

Thank god Toump's mum and Morton dad never met!

Someone should be called to explain what has happened with ToumpAs. He was a solid junior and obviously his development has gone to [censored].

Right now I would have Morton ahead of Toumpas by a mile, was saw promise and good signs from Morton.

We havnt even had a glimpse of what Toumpas is supposedly meant to offer.

What's the go?

Morton or Toumpas ???

er', le` toumpa.... any week of the season
