Now that's a stretch. Dropped in 2017 before the finals. One top ten finish in the B&F before this year. An average previous finals performance history, including some notably poor efforts in the 2018 prelim. But, he turned it around. He worked hard on his game. Its a great achievement but lets not have a history re-write. Its a super story of improvement and persistence in the face of adversity. To perform like he has after what he has gone through shows great courage.

He was a kid in 2017, and we had a premiership team. Hard to get a guernsey, even if you're a gun kid.

He hasn't turned anything around, he's just improved from good to very good as he's matured. Still only 24.

Dusty was a gun from day 1, but still had deficiencies and gaps early which he's steadily improved on.

Just didn't have the same level of hate levelled at him.

I really miss people saying "season over" when we are ten points down in the second quarter of a H&A game in round 4

I'll try and remember that so I can oblige with the pessimistic post before we power away and win the first 4 games of the season.

What an amazing accomplishment.
I remember watching him live in a particular game sometime over the past 2 years and fell in love with his kicking. It looked more skilful and impactful at the ground than it did on TV. I came on here after the game and saw agreement about his poor kicking that day. I still don’t know what it is, but once you see it you can’t un-see it. Gun.

I remember being on the fence at Port Melbourne in the 2017 VFL prelim and Short hit a 55M missile to a player standing less than 10 meters from me. It was an astonishingly sweet hit and the player, Conca I think, didn't have to move an inch. Very impressive.

he has vastly improved each year he has been at the club. Congratulations!

Not the “lost it at the selection table” mob on a Thursday night?

Geelong supporters didn't think much of Corey Enright early. He made the AA squad seven times, first as a 26yo. Short is only 24. Would be good if...

Hate?

And are you suggesting dusty has some level of hate directed at him?

We all get passionate about the club/team etc but not sure hate is the right word to describe the criticism that almost all of us level at various players. I mean I would never suggest that you level hate at george despite the constant negativity of your posts towards him.

Yeh, it was great. And an example of his improvement in this area - in the past he was more like a turnstile with his tackling. And Bl;cavs is a big man and it was a big moment that kept the momentum our way.

Standing at the G, at the 2017 Prelim and a Cats supporter makes some wise crack about we'd be nothing without Houli, or something similar. I turn to him and say, we'll be right, Jayden Short's a good player, he'll be good cover for Houli when he retires. He says "Short.........Short, who the *smile* is he? Jayden Short..............get *smiled*" I replied, don't worry mate, you will! Now, I'm sure that knob doesn't remember the conversation, but I do, and only if I could say "Told ya, *smile* stick!"

There was a real level of personal insult delivered at Shorty.
