People should still be able to make coherent arguments. Otherwise I may as well put RoJo No.1 and expect everyone to take me seriously. What does that even mean? He still managed to finish second in the Brownlow in the year Cousins won it. Did someone forget to steal his thunder that year? Come on, this is bullshit. It's not like there's a limited quota of quality and Judd and Cousins were hogging it all. There was plenty of "opportunity to shine". In fact, it was easier for Kerr to shine because he didn't have to worry about a tag. When Cousins and Judd left, how did Kerr go? Geez, you're keen on buzzwords. Were Mainwaring, Heady and Lewis "blue collar"? Matera stood out because he was a champion. Hang on. So Matera, who got tagged, had an advantage, whereas Kerr, who wasn't tagged, was denied opportunity? Surely that's about as arse-backwards as it gets. The fact that Matera got tagged made his life harder. The fact that Kerr wasn't tagged made his life easier. Doesn't that make more sense than what you've said?
