He has no depth in his kicking and should not be in the team

He misses too may getable shots as well.

It was the exact same issue last year.

The fact that he knocked Mills out seems to have erased the serious shortcomings in his skills from our collective memories. He is full of endeavour, but seriously lacking in the skills to play senior football.

He is a small forward expected to kick goals. If he can't kick get rid of him.

Fumbles, crap disposal  (handpasses to team mates under more pressure than him) and of course his usual miss from 30 out kicks.

 

Optimizes our team.

 

Can rot at Casey.

Not just his kicking. No one in history makes more mistakes. Drops marks, fumbles, misses goals, overruns the ball... the works. Not going anywhere with Bugg in the side.

Yep - wholly his fault that we're playing like spuds

Not wholly his fault, but gee it can knock the wind out of you when a team mate turns the ball over every possession and I mean every possession. Even his poster from 20 out gave them possession and yes I know that was facetious, but I thought that was nothing but a terrible game by a skilless footballer who destroyed every thrust we had when he got involved. 

I would have delisted him at half time. 

We will go nowhere if we play guys like him. They just kill you.

I said to my better half he should enjoy the last free kick of the game because it will be the last one of his AFL career.  He should never play seniors again.  He is a complete liability.  Surely even guys like Spargo and Baker would be better options.

I don't think he's best 22, but I'm not convinced Wagner, Harmes and ANB are either

Not much said about him last week, was there? 'Coulda had six'...'pressure acts'....blah blah

These players were shown up today as were others

Goodwin has to adjust to Oliver, Petracca, et al copping heavy tags every week from now on

15 goals to one after quarter time

I blame the selectors who are picking him.

It's kind of telling that the Hawks slotted goals on the boundary at 50, nailed set shots from every angle, but a guy like Bugg can't kick a single goal from numerous bread and butter shots. A small forward should have been in his element today. Bugg, Garlett and others around our goals have glaring weaknesses

YEP, he's nothing but a liability.

He'll never be a premiership quality forward, let alone midfielder.

He's only supported when the team plays well around him. He just plods along.

From now on. It's the selectors fault if we pick him. He is a clear liability so why hate on him when he gets selected.

I’ve never disliked a player like I do Bugg, he has very little skill and poor decision making, he had a rare good outing last week, he is inconsistent and not up to the level required.

And people thaught I was mad for questioning his inclusion in the side this week.

Bugg's a spud but I would give him 1 more week, unfortunately we can't drop them all.

You're right in that we can't drop them all.

You're wrong to give him another week.

He's a momentum killer. @ProDee was right. His 4 goals last week was the worst thing that came out of that game. He can't kick, he can't handpass and he's fumbly. We simply cannot feature him in our forward line. Get him out.
