I have this feeling no one would care about Etem if he was from say New York...
My point exactly. Forbort is doing fine of course, this year I was spoiled enough to spend a whole month in ND MN and NE (NE for the great outdoor series) and saw a ton of Forbort. Spoke to him a few times and I really like the kids personality.

He is a big guy who due to his size will take longer to develop but he is on track. The thing with Etem is that the kid has game and is going to be a good player but then so is Forbort and so is Toffi and the list goes on and on.

That's why I can't see having passed on Etem and taken Forbort or Toffoli etc makes anyone a disappointment. Horses for courses.
