Explain that though, thats what im getting at. What is that based on? because so far its all hype and aggression. FWIW im not trying to argue that Webb and Klemmer are the same quality, just that both of them are massivly overhyped without really doing anything to warrant it.
People come out and say stuff like "OMG Klemmer is a beast" or "He'll be an automatic selection for Australia for 10 years". What makes people think this though? he's not a forward leader, he's not particularly skillful or talented and he isnt a workhorse or 80min starter. So what is he besides aggressive??
What makes Klemmer any better than Andrew Fafita?
Gus nailed it today when he said the media talked up these young kids as superstars when in reality they have barley taken their first steps in NRL. Funny as then Johns started talking up the winger and Gus jumped in with "yes just like that" lol.
Klemmer looks a good big young prop but lets discuss in three years if he is anything special. At the moment he looks the goods but as has been said so did Webb, Taylor, Williams and numerous other forwards for one or two years.
Klemmer is a great player. What does it matter if he isn't a great player in a few years time. He's a great player now. He deserves accolades now.
Just because guys like Webb and Williams have had a good year and gone shit we're supposed to hold back on praising young players because they may stop being good at some point in future? Great way to sell the game that.
