    His 4 goals against the Hwaks in 2007 was very good. Since the 90's the Roos have not been any good in finals. I would not point the finger at 1 player. He gets the number 1 tag because he is the most dangerous.

    Daniher has the biggest hype out of any player drafted - even going past Watts. He has a lot to live up to. Lets hope he is not the next Gumby or Kosi.

    Because he's 30.

    How come Matthew Scarlett didn't dominate the competition last year? Overrated spud if you ask me. :rolleyes:

    That game versus Essendon was a game that our final chances stood on, and it was looking likely that it could slip away from us before Boomer stepped up. That was a big game for us at the moment.

    And as mufassa said, we haven't had great finals the past decade, and that is more to do with the team then anyone individual.

    But in 2012 alone, he was also one of our best vs Geelong in round 3, a big game for our club.
    And then against Collingwood he was very good again - again with finals on the line.

    There are a lot of big games for North that Harvey has played very well in over the years - he was our most important player for years and when he didn't fire, we didn't.

    Not that I'm saying his matchwinning abilities are anywhere near the likes of Bartel or Franklin or Pavlich - but I just disagree that he doesn't impact matches.

    Because he barely plays and his legend seems to grow with each season he misses - which is all but 1 since 2008.

    I also disagree with this.

    Why can't players be overrated, even after one year? If North fans were talking of Atley winning the Brownlow in 2013, and being in the top 20 players of 2012, are you saying it is nonsensical to rate him as overrated?

    Some young players are the most overrated - because the hype over their potential translates to believing every good game is an awesome game and shows he will be an awesome player etc

    but how can you even talk of consistency if you wish to base your assumptions of his ability from only one season?

    What happens if Atley has a terrific season in 2013 and you then say "I was wrong for calling him overrated" but at the start of 2014 he does his ACL and plays again 2015 but is nothing like the player he was the year before....can I then say he's overrated if we are only talking one year to judge players?

    Can't believe someone put Kade Simpson on their list. One of the most underrated players in the game.

    I would say Tippett but no fans overrate him only Longmire.

    Who else, hard to say, I think the critics tend to get it right most of the time.

    Gutsey going after a kid that has had 2 broken legs. Who is next Morabito? Zero class.

    When did Hurley break 2 legs? A couple of soft tissue injuries is nothing. You have proved who the coward is.

    I don't see what that has to do with Ziebell being overrated.

    I would love to sit next to you at the next Essendon vs North game. seeing your face when Watson, Hurley, Heppell, Daniher, Goddard destroy your club would be quiet something.

    I always feel like these threads just dissolve into Bay 13 name-calling matches.

    Lol - we play you in the 2nd half of the season when your season is in the toilet. Every team requested Essendon after round 12. But book the seats I am more than happy to sit next to you.

    You gotta love those Essendon supporters.... coming off losing their last 7 games, have you ever had to listen to such garbage.

    They are a bunch of scrubbers. The only time they are any good is in the preseason.

    If you have to mention a 0 game rookie in your post then you have some issues to address.

    Was probably worth it.

    My top 10:
    1. Rioli - commentators...
    2.Harry O & Maxwell. Couldn't separate these 2. One's in love with his own hype, the other is perhaps the worst premiership captain to play the game. Unfortunately the tag of premiership captain makes Maxwell talked up by the media as an absolute champion when in reality, without the captaincy, he would surely be hard pressed to get a game.
    3. Hurley - Love his aggression but still needs to find his spot and show his full potential. Teases with glimpses but needs to get the whole product together to become a true monster of the comp.
    4. Nic Nat - Human highlight reel but also capable of not doing much over 4 quarters. Love watching him play and in a few years time will be almost the best ruck going round I think. He's still young, just needs to find more consistency.
    5. Daw - I want to see this kid play AFL but for a guy yet to debut, he has so much hype about what he could become.
    6. Scully. Injuries have severely impacted him but his huge contract means he should be producing more. Still young.
    7. Judd. A champion and one of the best to play the game. Can't help but feel he has been on the decline in the last few seasons yet is still mentioned/rated as one of the best in the league. For mine, he would be outside the top 5 mids currently.
    8. Clark (and Dawes) - A lot of money and a lot of press coverage covering these moves. Clark did back up and show some talent before injury in 2012 but still not convinced he should be on that kind of money just yet. Dawes I reckon will be in the same boat but has less talent that Clark.
    9. Cloke - after this season, has shown he struggled. Remains to be seen if he can get back to his 2011 vintage. In 2011, he admittedly played out of his skin compared to anything else he has managed to produce. Contract settled, he may get back to those heights.
    10. Buddy - Went with a bit of a controversial selection here. Buddy is a flawed genius, capable of the impossible, susceptible to the seemingly straightforward (a bit like Richo). He's a superstar and in 2012 he had (by his standards) probably a relatively poor year. Iron out his wayward kicking and a few other deficiencies and he would be almost unplayable.

    Woosh.

    Missing the point as per usual, every one of the players named has been mentioned as being over rated.

    opps I also forgot Ryder, Stants and Monfries.
    I had to laugh when I read Monfries as overrated.
