Still can't believe 17 clubs completely overlooked a super talent like this.

Hmmm Syd has the highest player rating ................................ geez the circle jerkers are fast having their work cut out justifying awarding Sammy Walsh with the medal still.

But they probably will anyway as a feelgood act for the Blues.

How good would it be if Syd became the first to win the RS, Norm Smith Medal, Premiership Medal and get AA in his first season LOL.

Imagine the melts in the media and the forums it would be sooooo sweeet

Its outrageous isnt it, and how sweet would it be if Marlion bursts onto the scene come the last weeks Jacky G style or Towner style to be highly influential in a charge at September.

I have just listened to a podcast about RFC and our Sydney. It certainly made it clear how all the clubs rated Syd's skill but were wary of his commitment and why RFC took a chance on him thanks to the rule changes. Mrs H as usual worked her magic on Sydney and thanks to our clubs inclusiveness, understanding and care of its players he has started to mature in the right way and that shows in spades when he is playing. The club is lucky to have Sydney and Sydney is lucky to have our club.

I understood to Clarke to say that they would have taken him as a rookie if the new rules were were not on place.

Amazing intel that they were tracking him and knew that Stack wouldn't be taken in either the main or the PS draft.

Sorry. No one will match the ‘Miracle Man’ Townsend.
That tackle on Crouch basically turned the GF.
There should be a Statue of Townsend on Swan st.

A statue on Swan st and another at Punt rd is the least we can do Zips.
Towner was awesome in the GF, especially the 2nd quarter.
As well the hit on M Crouch on the boundary line, he rattled, I think it was the other Crouch with a bone crusher in the middle of the ground.
Towner will forever be my hero.

I’ve spoke to the Wangaratta city council about getting one of the grain towers turned into a Sydney Stack ;)

In all seriousness has there been a better first year ? especially considering his played back, forward and midfield and delivered in each zone, has a player ever been named in 2 spots in the All Australian team ?

Even if Stackman isn't BOG or doing the absolutely amazing thing he continues to impress me with his endeavour, his skills and his ability to read the game. A couple of things he did today against Port just made me clap my hands spontaneously in both joy and wonderment.
Great talent to have on the list.
