He hasn't shown the same ability to accumulate possessions at will, and isn't as physically developed as Rowell is (and was this time last year). Rowell was through directly into the Suns' on-ball brigade, and accumulated nine Brownlow votes in four games. The fact that the Swans plan to play Campbell off half-back to start with indicates he is nothing like as physically ready for the really tough stuff around the ball.

    The thing I worry about is that with so many good kicks on the team, like Campbell, Ling, Dawson and Stephens, they'll be calling us the New Hawthorn.

    That's a pretty good wrap too.
    But I thought Rowell's start last year was the most impressive I've ever seen; and I was around for Carl Ditterich's first year , too.
    Anyway, I'll be watching Braeden Campbell with a fair degree of excitement.
    2121 could be a fun year, let's hope so.
    2121 could well be a fun year but unfortunately I doubt whether any of us will be here to enjoy it

    You don't want your consciousness downloaded into RWO posthumously?
    We'll probably need Agent Smith as a moderator though
    The Tom Papley Backpack $39.99 from the RWO merchandise tab - if only!

    If Rowell had played out the season, I reckon he would have given the Brownlow a shake. Phenomenal debut....I was pretty disappointed when he got injured.

    Rowell has the best first season since Judd; so unlikely, but if it happens great.

    What we do know is he’s an elite kick. I remember listening to (from memory, but can’t be certain) Dunstall saying he’s the best field kick to enter the AFL in a decade.

    If that’s the case and he learns to play AFL standard football, then him running around alongside McInerney, Blakey, Stephens, Dawson and if they get there Ling and Gould, offers the prospect of a good time better than what was on offer at the corner tables at Jackson’s on George in the 1990s.

    The source is clearly Kevin Sheehan.

    I’d have no problems if Campbell only got 6 Brownlow votes across his first 4 games.

    A lot to be excited about in 2021

    I’ve done that half a dozen times this year. Sorry, guys.
