Thread: The Lizard

  1. #1

    The Lizard

    Was thinking about a young Buddy Franklin in his first year of footy 2005 and our comparing him to young Nick “Lizard” Blakey

    I was lucky enough to see Buddy play round 1 against Sydney in season 2005

    Buddy in his first 3 seasons had

    2005 - 21 goals from 20 games
    2006 - 31 goals from 14 games
    2007 - 73 goals from 22 games

    So what about our Lizard ?

    I wonder what his trajectory will be if injury free over his first 3 seasons ? At the moment he is tracking the same as Bud year 1

    2019 - 14 goals from 14 games

    Could be anything, especially of he puts on weight and becomes a goanna.

    I can’t wait to “monitor” that 😂 lol

    1 goal a game year 1
    2 goals a game year 2

    I must have missed the reason why ‘lizard’ nickname in days gone by on here....
    because he’s always ‘flat out’
    Or
    ??

    Because his team mates think his running style resembles slithering.

    @AG.....Do you think we could have a capital 'L' in the word 'lizard' in the heading of this thread? I think Nick's 'nick'name deserves a capital 'L'.

    I believe it was JPK who said Blakey has no shoulders.

    It's because he has no chin, his head and neck kind of join into one
