    I was thinking last night about the value of really Tall players eg Sandilands. That got me thinking that somewhere in some league their must be some huge giant playing. So who would be the Tallest man playing outside the AFL any level?

    Ex-Saints rookie lister (2009-2010) Blake McGrath would still be playing somewhere, wouldn't he? He was 208cm IIRC.

    It's not unrealistic to think he could end up growing to 213-214cm, and becoming the AFL's first true 7-footer.

    not footy related but here is another picture of big toddy that shows his size... he is standing next to other BASKETBALL players. each around 6ft or more.

    im good mates with the big fella. he is incredibly big. but a gentle giant. and has returned to basketball nowadays more than footy. back in the two's where he played though, no one could touch it in the ruck against him. lol.

    The ground would need fixing after every game! He's a huge unit!
