Thing with DCE is if it was only one game and a few poor kicks no one would be grumbling. It's been poor without any signs of consistent improvement for years.Fact: Footy teams must have 3-4 playmakers (9, 7, 6 &/1). They must all be a threat in their own right, each offering a point of difference.
Fact: If only 1 of these is truly creating over the 80mins week in week out, it doesn't take long for all other teams to effectively put all their attention, and tremendous pressure on him.
To say the team will always be average due of DCE, because you happened to see him kick a few bad kicks on Friday night is almost laughable if it weren't so insulting
Last few months it's apparent he is working on his bombs. Spirals have emerged. Pretty sure I seen a couple inside foots ones as well.
In goal repeat sets. Nada. It's like DES has given up and just said get tackled on the fifth.
It's blood near on impossible to win a comp if building pressure and keeping possession is made that hard.
I'll hope and pray that this coming off season MAN and DCE can find the answer.
