Collingwood recruit James Aish is living proof of why you shouldnt judge an AFL player too quickly.Aish finished fourth in the count for the 2014 Rising Star award but managed only 11 games in his second season at Brisbane.It was a combination of poor form, a finger injury, a broken jaw and near-constant speculation over his future.Nonetheless the midfielder arrived at the Magpies with great expectations last year, having been taken with pick No.7 in the 2013 draft.Aish struggled in the opening half of this season but since earning a recall for round 14 has been far more consistent, playing all eight games and showing plenty of class.He copped a lot of flak for it, were so quick to jump on guys, Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley said of criticism levelled at Aish earlier this year.Aishys only in his third year. Hes played 25 or 30 games of footy. He was learning about his new teammates, coming to a new city in Melbourne that hes never lived in before.There was plenty of settling in that he had to do.Clearly hes been able to stick at it, see the bigger picture and continue to work away. His form over the last six weeks has been pretty encouraging.Buckley suggested many judges showed a lack of restraint across the league.I know we get very impatient with recruits, even with young players, he said.An old wise head once told me that you cant expect a third grader to pass matriculation.Youve got to get through primary school before you get to high school.The hot form of Adam Treloar, who like Aish joined the club during last years trade period, has helped the Magpies deal with the season-long absence of Dane Swan.Buckley remains unsure whether 2011 Brownlow medallist Swan will retire, having suffered a serious foot injury in round one.Hes in limbo a little bit. Hes still trying to work out what his bodys capable of and how his foot is healing, Buckley said.The next surgical opinion isnt going to be until late September, so hes working away now to make sure hes in shape to keep next year on the radar.

It gave him great upper-body strength and quickness. He could really run. He was a tenacious player and a competitor. He was really good and he was a member of a great group at Oklahoma.Elrod played three years in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs and one with the Houston Oilers.In his younger days, he left quite an impression when he walked into the room.Jimbo has always been an 18-year-old guy to me because thats what he was when I signed him, Switzer said. He always had movie-star looks and a lot of hair. I was always jealous of his hair. Everybody was.Its the second fatal crash this year in Oklahoma involving a football standout.
