Agreed

Now that I am old and know so much more, I know that I know so much about so little, and so little about so much.

I'm a fan. A genuine play-bursting play maker who needs to tidy up his skills to become a fully fledged weapon.

Love him... brilliant one minute...
Where did he go... where is he... mmmm.....
Is he still out there....
Oh there he is....
He just seems to go missing for patches then crops up to do something.

Get a good feeling when you see him size up the approaching defender. He's an exciting player that's for sure.

Potentially the best of our 2013 draft. currently sitting 4th, but expect him to rise.

Love the kid. Makes the odd dopey decision but that's what you get from players who take the game on. Future star imo.

Billings has great potential, just lacking confidence.

Acres is getting better and better but still not quite there yet.

Was it just me, or did he kick more precisely than normal?
He was more composed than usual, exciting to watch
We need new assistant coaches.
The current ones are underperforming. "Player development" is a phrase that means nothing at Seaford.
Who has developed? Who has gone backwards this year?

Apart from that mark he dropped he did some really exciting things.
Even some of his taps showed he thinks creatively - one little attempted tap in the Lockett pocket didn't come off but the thinking was impressive
He is a natural.

Personally, I'm a huge fan

Want to see him stay in the 22 and IMO he'll improve out of sight quickly

Big fan. I really see a lot of Lenny in him.

I wonder if Lenny could mentor him this year to help him hit his full potential?

Watching the replay now. Acres dropped a mark then was pinged holding the ball in the first quarter when he should have had a close range shot at goal. Once he becomes more confident I don't think we will see this sorts of moments in his game.

Loved him from last year a line breaking tall strong mid fielder. Has inside and outside abilities.

Brilliant

And innovative

Showed from his introduction to AFL football that he will be a stand out player not only at St Kilda but in the competition

And he now has the support he has

The stereo comment re his disposal is way off the mark and always has been

He is a player who is 2 or 3 steps ahead

Has Jack Steven got a terminal illness that will soon see him gone?

Fair freakin dinkum!

Just needs to play senior games. Get another 30 games under his belt and will really flourish. Has real line breaking ability.
