Rising Star Nomination for The Duke?



Recommended Posts

A couple of times when he has accelerated into a ground ball, grabbed it cleanly, and exited a pack before anyone can touch him (as though time has stopped) reminds me of one of our greatest players.

Love this comment in the guardian in the crows game review.  

“Harley Reid’s had more column inches devoted to him than Bruce Lehrmann but Windsor may end up being the steal of that draft at pick seven”

Windsor is already special. He's going to be VERY special. I too, am very excited at what he could become.

But I get very nervous when certain comparisons and labels are given to young players in their first year. Nick Watson being called 'The Wizard' EVERY time, for example. It puts unnecessary pressure on him. 

The Flower comparison has been whispered in media and in forums. I get it, believe me, but we (me included) must pull ourselves up.

Watching Robbie play was like seeing Nureyev at a barn dance. He just made the other players on the field look clumsy and cumbersome. 

As Sinead O'Connor once said to him, "Nothing compares 2 U". 

Let's watch this kid build his own legacy and just enjoy the ride.

I'm one of those who have made comparisons, and yeah…you rewatch Flower and you just see a man amongst men, taking the pizz on the regular. Long way to go yet.

Why is it interesting? If he won Goal of the Round with his first career goal then he deserves to be on the list.

Not that he is on the list for that reason, just that he doesn't kick many and not too many I remember being spectacular.

That's because he has only kicked 4 goals in his career. 3 for the Crows and 1 for the Dees.

Not disputing his place on the list, just surprised by it.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
