So true, I remember lamenting how we could never develop players and other teams could, tables turned now.

With Shai the one I most remember is him taking a speccy in the 2019 QF, not only did he not bask in the glory of such a great mark, he was immediately looking for options and quickly kicked to Lynch on the lead for a certain goal. Great maturity and team attitude right there. Throw in some of his magical evasive skills and we just have to sign this guy up before his contract ends.

That was a super highlight. We were down at that time as well

I was always quietly confident that Shai was going to make it, after the first quarter of the 2017 VFL Grand Final I was certain.

Crack open one of Grimesy's wines and put the feet up, it only goes for 12 minutes, enjoy.

Probably only the first couple of minutes worth watching though.

Remember saying the same.
Build the tank and he would be involved in games longer.
Should have won that GF.

That's power drinking there Tigerman.

12 minutes a bottle and you didn't say you shared either!

Bernie being the responsible guzzler of alcohol that I am, I was talking about the little 187ml bottles. They're fantastic, I find they are a very good substitute for milk on my Weeties.
Sorry for the confusion hangover.

No player can expect to hold forever Shai's form of the past two years. If he eats only deep-fried breaded mac, transfat and yellowcake then walks in front of a Custodian brand lobotimiser he may find himself back in the AFL best U22.

Pitfalls and disgrace.

But I'm thinking Shai is too talented to wind up there.

Clearly I'm an old curmudgeon but all I think seeing that is he is just asking to get injured.

Amazing. Wanna see him jump on Grundy's head and take the mark of the century
Actually I'd prefer it was Cox and then he can swagger back to his mark ...... giving the pies crowd the shoosh gesture on the way! :vomit

Dangerflog held the “record” until Isaac Cummings (GWS) beat it. Then Shai bettered that!
Dangerflog last seen heading dejectedly back into his cave for a cry and a sulk
At least Shai wasn't doing his under an industrial fan like Cummings. I'd like to see that injury report.

I knew he was a super star in the making, and now he can jump tall buildings in a single bound.
