    Anyone know why his numbers dropped significantly in the second half of the year? Went from averaging 100 down to a little over 80.

    I think he started to wear out as the season got on but teams also took more notice in him and he started to receive more respect from the opposition due to that.

    Sort of feel he was a bit of a barometer for the Crows because when he was playing well, the side was smashing it and when he was struggling big time, the Crows seemed to be as well.

    He was sore in the second half of the year no doubt, he was rested in round 21 or 22 I think and that freshened him up for finals (he tore up Fremantle).

    But as Sloane drops off Danger almost senses this and raises his own performances. It's an interesting dilemma, but he was only youngish

    Re: Sloane, Rory

    Was meant to add after the North game but **** I love how Sloane plays. Was running into the goal square against two North guys (only knew about one) who he out muscled and was going for a mark until he was solidly met by another North player. He had no idea he was there and got crunched and bounced straight back up (would have bloody hurt). What I loved about it was how he didn't hesitate for a second to see what was around him and only had his eyes for the ball.

    Many (including myself) talk Dangerfield up as our future captain but I'd be just as happy if Sloane was to get that title instead as he hits the pack just as hard as Dangerfield, something that really lifts a team (see Selwood).

    Re: Sloane, Rory

    The reason I want Danger is the extra assurance that he stays in Adelaide.

    Free Agency moves will pretty accepted by 2015.

    He will be the biggest of the big ticket items (along with Tex tbh) for that year. He could genuinely be the best player in the comp by then and I think he demands the Captaincy.

    I don't expect van Berlo to be Captain longer than another 18 months (might only be 6).

    Re: Sloane, Rory

    Have to say Sloane's my favourite Crow by a fair distance, love watching him play, his game against Freo was amazing (his season has been as good), thought he was second best on ground behind Barlow. As you said his attack on the footy is brutal, but he has the foot skills and footy smarts as well. He's a no fuss player and you know he is going to give 100% at every contest. Haven't liked the fact how playing for frees has started to creep into Danger's game, but he's copping it from all angles in regards to taggers so I guess you can argue it can be effective.
