Tom must be going well, foxsports need to have a headline from touk miller about the confrontation he had with lynch when he decided to leave, I assume he confronted brandon ellis too about going to gc under FA?

I'm just waiting for the moral arbiter to sit down and read the riot act to the next high draft pick that wants out of that career killing club.

Averages 2 goals a game I wouldn’t be paying anyone $1 mil for that

If you were the list manager we probably wouldn't have won our last 2 flags then. I guess we could pay half of that and have a Charlie-Dixon-quality key forward, but I'd much rather have Tom and 2 extra flags than be Preliminary finalists like Port.

Gotta pay a premium to get top line forwards out of other clubs under free agency and Lynch has been fantastic for our forward line structure.

He isn’t a top line forward, far from that in todays game. Again 2 good games with 6 goals doesn’t make you the best forward we could have.

How many goals a game would you pay $1m for?
How many Premierships?, i'd take 1 but we have 2 under Tom's watch.

2019 Prelim v Cats win in particular, Tom had 19 disposals, 10 marks and 5 goals 1 behind, we don't make the granny without him there.

Lynch is a different beast when allowed to run and launch at the ball. The better defenders don't allow him to do so, and he gets caught out trying to wrestle, or play from behind. But when given the freedom to roam, you can see his confidence rise. It's why I think he's a better CHF than FF because it gives him more licence to keep moving, which helps his overall game.

The faster ball movement into F50 is also helping out Tom. We've made some significant improvements in the ball movement the last two weeks, and he's reaping the benefits.
Always believed this. He's a CHF, not a FF

correct

2020 GF Q4. game is still in the balance as we only clawed our way back to parity in Q3.

i recommend anyone re-watch this last quarter if they have any lingering doubts about Tom's worth.

and no, it won't necessarily tell on the stat sheet either. physical, bullocking football at its best.

Yep. Kept us in the 2019 season off virtually no pre season when Jack was out injured.

He's playing with as much confidence as I've ever seen him, he's even looking better with the loose ball gets and weaving in traffic, where in the past he's looked slow and cumbersome in those situations.

Would be great to see him get the Coleman medal and shove it up his detractors. There's a lot of Lynch haters out there.

Best game I’ve seen him play. Not just the goals and marks, but how he brought others into the game.

If he doesn’t play, not sure we win that game such was the ordinary team performance.
