People can dig up old posts if it makes them feel good. Fact is, Jayden was soft. He was panicky, he was poor defensively. He is no longer. All credit to him.

You can use my old words to try to bury me if you like. But as Dimma says, I choose to be planted. Cheers!

Well done Shorty, and well deserved. He’s a much improved player, and that’s something about the great sides, they win Premierships and continue to improve their players.

So many of us were wrong. Shorty has improved out of sight this season and has got the reward he richly deserved. I take some consolation in the fact post GF I did say he has come of age.

Fantastic season by Short! He has worked on his deficiencies that had some of us questioning his spot in the team. He has put all that to bed now.

What a great story. From rookie pick to B&F in a premiership year. Well done Shorty, all your hard work and perseverence has perfectly complimented your natural footy ability. Clearly second BOG in the granny, so this is thoroughly deserved. :cupgold

Well done Shorty. Unfairly maligned by shortsighted folks who focussed on your areas to improve instead of your skills, run and meters gained. Always saw the talent and justified to all now

Ditto from me, KK. I have always been on board. Posters need to stop expecting young players to be "everything possibly required" in an AFL footballer immediately.
What? His courage to win the ball, usually kick it superbly, and be one of the leading metres-gained players in the comp wasn't a promising enough start? For a young bloke who I am pretty sure, played wing or SF in his junior career; not as a defender so had to learn this trade.

Brilliant year and GF performance. Congratulations Jayden Short.

Correct. Too many people were blinded by his shortcomings.

Thankfully Dimma and co embrace our players and focus on their strengths instead.

We have such an even team it was hard to predict who would win.

A very deserved winner.

I think one aspect is his consistency. Doesn't sound sexy but what do you want in a half back if not consistency? You need players you can rely on: defend and rebound. He does it week after week but consistency also means you often get noticed less.

I've had my doubts at times, I think most of us have, but the ability to learn and improve is invaluable and now he gets his just reward, good to see.

Wrong, wrong, wrong.

Shorty has been a gun from day 1.

Some of the old posts calling him soft came AFTER he dislocated his elbow, AND THEN tried to slap away the ball to save a goal.

He's improved defensively, definitely. But it was obvious he would. Of course a young player improves. But has been an automatic selection for three years.

And is an absolute weapon with his cleanliness, creativity, skills and decision making. Which have always been A grade.

Is now a best and fairest in a premiership year.

And your 'old posts' had him dropped on at least three occasions this year.

Shorty is now a legend of the club. All the haters can stick that in their pipes!

Didn’t get to hear his speech last night.
Just heard it this morning and I got quite emotional. Teared up as it brought memories back for me.
I feel bad that I couldn’t remember him losing his bad.

Just makes his win more courageous.
