he turned it on a bit last week against that other team, almost as if he had some deep seated hatred for them...

Yeah, can't remember his name either - but he just didn't want to be there playing football tonight. He was unbelievably bad, he avoided any involvement. I don't get it, he can be a fantastic footballer.

Even though I forget his name, I do wish him all the best - I hope he finds that spark again.

You can look at him though, so he's going better than his brother.

Stephen's brother's decline in form seems to coincide with his change in coach. I wonder if St Kilda would consider taking on Ross Lyon. I believe he is currently available.

So, the deaf cheats were rubbish and mad mick reckons dropping Stephen's brother will fix the problem?

I think the football world would benefit more from somebody dropping mad mick.

Hill went from 18 touches a game with Hawthorn, to 23 touches a game at Freo, then down to 15 touches a game at the Saints.

He has his flaws, but he’s a weapon to be used, and either the St Kilda coaches or players aren’t using him correctly.

The common refrain by commentators when an ‘outside’ player isn’t getting the ball is that he needs to go get it himself. It’s lazy analysis and largely garbage. Hill has one elite skill you can’t teach, which is running hard and finding space. Asking him to give that up to fight with bigger, specialist ball winners is like entering a Ferrari into a demolition derby.

His role is to be near the end of another chain of events. So long as he’s where he needs to be in that chain, it’s not his fault if it falls down before the ball gets to him. Mick is basically yelling at the delivery driver for his package being stuck in the port.

It's rare that you can so easily spot a player that doesn't want to get involved as Stephen's brother last night. At one stage the Deaf Cheats were trying to handball their way up the field just outside their back 50. Stephen's brother was about 10m in from the boundary - Crouch, Steele and some others were back and forthing it between them to create a pocket of space for Stephen's brother to move into. He actually stepped back inside the 50 and kept backtracking to put himself out of the play. They stuffed it - of course - and eventually the ball was knocked out of bounds for another stoppage. It was the third quarter, no one was willing to try and use him after that.

I really like the kid - a lot - but that stood out for me. In my view he deserves the criticism. Sorry.
