Jordan Lewis Out with Broken Hand

Recommended Posts

A bit of unecessary vitriol from some.

Grow up.

I wish him all the best for a speedy 6-8 week recovery, when it's all mended and he's ready to go, he's not amune from a month in the magoo's. Recover your touch son and work your butt off to get back in the side.

So many sh.t supporters potting a bloke who broke his hand and still played over a half of football with it. 

I assume most who are potting would miss a day of work with a paper cut.  

Poor form.

Blessing in disguise Bee. Let's not hide away from that.

How is he out of form? He Was the highest possession winner against North and one of the main reasons we beat Brisbane. 

Are you basing his drop in form from Sunday when he played with a broken hand?

Timely for selection purposes.

Three year deal if I remember correctly. However I think it was always understood that the third year would see him ease into coaching. That now looks more likely to be sooner. He is far too slow now, broken hand or not. Don't expect to see a lot of him on field in the second half of this year.

Trading lesson 101: the Hawks never give much away unless there is much to be gained (such as a rare commodity like a good ruck man).

Played terribly v Hawks, so did 90% of the team. Played very well v North and from what the club said they were happy with his role v Brissy. He's an important player but for me he's not doing enough. Maybe this time off gives him a chance to get a few other niggles right, and he can maybe lend his experience in the coaching box.

That might be a balanced perspective .

Probably means that one of the serial 2018 under performers like Harmes, Melksham, ANB, Bugg or even Fritsch will be spared the axe.

Tough on Fritsch who was still trying to make things happen in the final quarter against Hawthorn and who has contributed every other week. No argument otherwise.

I have no issues at all that Jordans form has been down. He may have warranted a 'freshener' in the Magoos , but the sheer nastiness from some is not welcome for mine.

Yes I was extremely tough and unfair on Fritsch as he was trying in the last qtr compared to about 18 others.

However, he's having little influence on games apart from the odd nice cameo and may have to make way for Hannan to mix things up. Such is the tough position that is the forward pocket.

Some have Garlett on the chopping block, but he survives purely because he has a proven track record of responding after a horrid performance....and that was horrid V's Hawks.

This is a blow to me.

Yep he had a shocker last week but he's been one our more consistent players at impacting the game early in the season. His ball use is still so much better then a lot of our young players. He more often then not at least makes the right decision by foot even if he misqueues occasionally. 

On the big stage in a heated game its always useful to have cool calm heads who use the ball effectively off half back. A steadier down back that will miss a chance next Wednesday to bounce back after a terrible game.

Perhaps sadly Ernest I have got to the point with the MFC that I don't care about the individual anymore. Over the last 50 years numerous playing groups have completely worn away my " care factor for the individual" we have paid top ups to so many end of their time players over the years that my attitude is close to " if you cannot cut it get out of the road and let someone else have a go" 

I am only interested in winners over hill players can nick off.

Brutal ? Yes.

Brutally fair OD.

Bit hard on Bailey. I agree on the other 3 they  need a rocket.

Broke his hand playing footy for our club, all the best for his recovery. 

Agreed.

While I don't want him playing senior footy at the moment, it certainly was not my hope that he is forced out of the team with injury.

Wishing him a speedy recovery.

Perhaps not. 

Perhaps a retirement trip to Paris, a nice little bar and a glass of Ricard/water and ice.
