He can play a Dusty role if he puts in a solid preseason.
He has the tools especially up forward.
The ball is in his court.
It would *smile* me off if he comes back overweight and behind the rest

I’m going a slightly different line... for his personality and focus he needs to play back... be accountable and do your job. He’d be flashy and interesting forward, but I don’t think that would then lock him down to a firm “this is what you need to do”.... and then he may become wayward... plenty of flashy forwards over the years... only true pundits see the value backs deliver.

Syd can play anywhere, I still believe he could be our best small defender or forward .

I’d have him train with the midfield group over the pre season as I think that’s where he would be most benefit to us , incredibley clean hands and if not our best field kick , very bloody close too, in saying that half back is where his played his best footy

Been an excellent step forward this year for Stack.
He could be a superstar if he gets himself super fit.
Come on Syd roll up the sleeves, it's all in front of you.

At least half of the players in that Hawthorn 22 are VFA players. That's the class we were racing in.

I'm trying to get my head around Sydders. If the coaches are to address one area of his game, if there's on weakness he works on, what is it? A root cause.

His ground game disappeared. Vanished after two much improved weeks. He did not form up for tackles. And was aerially absent.

Wanganeen used to have form problems even into his twenties. When he was a dashing backman. (And swingman.) And Sheedy used the same treatment every time. He'd feed him a goal. Eventually Wanganeen flourished as a forward but those goals he kicked early in his career were confidence pills administered by the coach. (You gotta be able to kick em.)

Hardwick is often clearly a Sheedy disciple. And never more so than when he feeds Sydney Stack a goal.

The root cause is confidence.

One decent preseason. Not even a monster extra sessions preseason. Just solid and consistent.

Turn up day one in good, not great but good condition. One injury free, drama free solid four months. November to March.

And then I truly don't know how good he can be.

This is the key. If he can have a good, solid uninterrupted pre season, we could be set for an outstanding home and away season from him.

Agree but I also want to see a good pre-preseason

I just want to think that just he’s taken good care of himself over the break - so that he fronts up for the first day of the official preseason - he’s ready to get stuck right in

In my younger sporting days, my coach said the off season just needed to be consistent and working to a plan, nothing crazy just get the work done.

Sydney needs consistency in his life.
Something his childhood lacked.
Consistency in effort and consistency in position is the key.
In 2019 we shifted him around after a promising start and think that although he showed some great cameo signs, it ultimately contributed to his season demise.
Backman until he dominates for a couple of seasons but more importantly shows consistency and maturity in his life.
Then you loosen the chains.

Was hoping to see an announcement last week that Syd has re-signed. Hopefully he puts pen to paper soon...
Was thinking the same thing. Surely if the club tabled him an offer he would jump at it. Or maybe he has interest from one of the WA clubs?
