    He only got to play like a star because arguably the No. 1 defender in the comp was wearing Buddy like a winter coat.
    When "Melbourne's" No. 2 defender is on Tipoff (that defender not being the freak that Tom McDonald is, and still playing in one of the crapper teams in the comp), you'd expect Tipoff to kick more than 4.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    Isn't that the whole point of having both Tippo and Buddy

    The difference between insanity and genius is measured only in success.

    We recruited Tippett as a key forward. You can expect a decent goal output from a key forward.
    With Buddy in the side, Tippett is now a forward/ruck. You can expect goals & hit outs from a forward/ruckman. & goals from Buddy. Between them we expect goals but both don't have to dominate. So long as on does, or they do between them. Or, if neither of them are, it's because 3 or 4 opposition back men are the focused on Kurt & Buddy's, freeing up another 1-2 avenues to goal for us. & Tippett should, with Pyke, at least give us the opportunity for majority use of the ball from hit outs. They mostly seem to so far (albeit that neither are dominant big men around the ground.
    He doing he job IMO

    It was yet another case of...Nearly a dominant game...For 1 quarter anyway.....

    But alas no, it was just another 'pretty good game' from Tippo.

    Will Tippo ever kick 6, against a quality opposition, to pull us across the line in a big game....I live in hope.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect... MT

    There is more than kicking goals to judge a play by. Buddy did not kick any but more than did his 'job for the team' thus giving Kurt more chances. Well done both boys.

    Very true. Look at the highlights where Buddy put on a massive bump to enable Benny's goal. He does that sort of stuff all game but it's not counted as a stat unless you get onepercenters.
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    I know they're not the be-all and end-all but 143 Supercoach points from a big man says that he was pretty dominant. Thats the most aggressively I've ever seen him tackle and attack the contest.

    Saw him limping in the post game de-brief with Tom Mitchell.
    After his comments on how lucky he was compared to his ex-teammate Riley from the Crows I hope he hasn't put the moz on himself.

    Always fun to bump this thread

    anyway, Carey is now weighing in on Tippett's performance.

    Wayne Carey says Sydney could use Kurt Tippett as trade bait
