Jack Viney the Forgotten Man

The best 25 AFL players under 25: Carlton’s Patrick Cripps ahead of GWS jet Josh Kelly

https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/the-best-25-afl-players-under-25-carltons-patrick-cripps-ahead-of-gws-jet-josh-kelly/news-story/93d9f6ae59654be8ff8e645ab1a586c0

...and Jack Viney doesn't even get a mention.

Criteria was " They have to be under 25 right now"  and " it is based on what they have produced this year and in recent seasons, not what they might produce in the future."

How Jack Viney doesn't make this list I can only think is an oversight.  My view is that he sits quite comfortably top five, if not top three. 

Whilst Jack hasn't yet again reached his pulsating best again in 2018, I've actually been impressed with the level of output and impact he has made in his handful of games to date off the back of an interrupted, injury plagued preseason.  Think he is building nicely and full expect him explode in comming weeks.  ...come on Jack - tear the Pies a new one!

You know the article is a joke when they've got Jordan De Goey, who is living off a couple of bags of goals this year, at #14.

Viney is clearly an oversight with him missing most of this year so far.  He is easily in the Top 25.

Edit - just realised they also have Tim Kelly in at #25.  The fact that he is there is even further proof that it's an oversight.  No self-respecting journalist could have him there deliberately ahead of Viney.

Probably done by the same person that didn’t list Gawn in the top 5 Ruckmen in the competition. 

Clearly an oversight, he’s taken one game to find his feet an he’s off and running again. Co-captain and out and out gun, he’s top 5 of that list for sure. 

Interesting thing I read from that article is Gus is out of contract, given he’s having an awesome season since returning to the seniors we’d want his signature sorted.

But guess what?  Very soon the tables will turn, and all of this will be fuel to my indignant (and perhaps partly alcohol fuelled) “go [censored] yourself” to all of these idiots.

Also have to remember that they need to fit in one idiot from each of the ‘big clubs’ to make readers of the Herald Sun feel OK about their team’s [censored] performance over their large cup of chino.

My “Go [censored] yourself” is going to be so loud when we finally get a flag...

Just now, Is Dom Is Good said:

What about Petracca??

What about McDonald??

What a joke this list is.

You're right, but at the end of the day you can't fit everyone in.

The only reason the Viney omission annoys me is that he has clearly been a gun player for years now.  He hasn't popped up this year, or only had one good season.  He's been excellent for a long period of time.  You could argue McDonald has as well.  Petracca has been less consistent so I could understand him missing out.

Regardless, we all know that we have some serious talent in the Under 25 bracket who are going to drive us forward to success for years to come!

I agree with this. But Petracca has been better than De Goey up until this point, yethe is listed at #14.

I don't know why I'm even getting worried about this, it is meaningless anyway haha.

Would you rather have the best crop of under 25 talent in the league, or a paragraph in the story about a young player going alright for you in an overall mediocre squad, in the story to add “balance”? 

Our footy does the talking now.

Nice little spur along for our boys.

I hope they get a bit p155ed off about it.

At least Bontempelli isn't in the top 3. How everyone rates him as a gun is beyond me. I'd take nearly every player on the list in front of him.

Our young players are so good we could probably have our own list of 10 under 25.

 

They won't see us coming because they aren't paying enough attention.

Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

    DEE ZEPHYR'S TRAINING REPORT Morning all. First time at Goschs for a while, there’s a scoreboard set up which I’ve never seen here before. Possible match sim? Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
