    I don't know if he's got a nickname yet...But as far as I'm concerned...

    He's 'The Honey Badger'.

    For those unfamiliar, the Honey Badger is regarded as one of the worlds most tenacious animals, tireless in combat and rarely beaten.

    I always regarded Paul Kelly to be a worthy Honey Badger...Mitchell has the makings of one.

    Good grief. All that after only 2 games? He really wants to play, doesn't he?

    Incredible.
    Against Essendon and Adelaide, Mitchell has averaged a disposal every three minutes - ranked number one in the competition.

    He churns out 1.42 SuperCoach points a minute, also a clear top-ranking in the AFL.

    How long ago did I say from watching the Twos that his hands reminded me of Sam. But his feet are a different matter. He can kick either foot as he can handball either hand but he gets a great deal of penetration by foot. DIESEL, that is the word by foot. Deisel was great by hand but lethal by foot because he was so penetrating. This kid is better than Deisel.

    they played him as Sub last week don't get that. I don't know where Sheedy's head is at. Whitfield had a blinder the week before and was BOG and gets to be Sub this week. What are you on Sheeds?

    I always liked John Eales' nickname because it certainly applied to him. It may be time to bestow it once again on a suitable recipient.

    The nickname for John Eales was "Nobody" (as in, Nobody's perfect).

    Tommy is very good, and I can see these three being the best 3 in the comp in 5-8 years time.

    It's a shame only one will win this year, and our Tommy is disadvantaged by not playing as many games as those guys.

    In the 20 year history of the Award, no player has ever won it after coming off a first game as late as Round 10. Indeed, in light of Tommy's Round 11 nomination, only three players (Ben Cousins 1996- Round 12, Justin Koschitzke 2001-Round 14, Daniel Talia 2012-Round 12), won the Rising Star after being nominated that late in a season.

    Thank God for that. So now Big Al won't be doing his nudie run. Really didn't want to see your rising star Big Al.
