Comparison seems to show that Ablett was an elite scorer while still beating Florent in almost every other area, while Florent was just getting mediocre numbers in the middle as his full-time role.
Seems like a great comparison, I'm leaving it up
Franklin is a better player than Goodes. I will die on this hill (and 90% of neutrals will agree with me)
No player has ever had more All-Australian selections which speaks to his incredible consistency, which is often overlooked because of his match-winning moments of brilliance
EDIT: My 3...
My annual repost of Hannebery going head-to-head against O'Keefe and collapsing like there was a sniper in the building, while O'Keefe charges on
ROK clearly wasn't flashy enough and doesn't get enough respect for his incredible consistency and output in the middle that year
That's a great question, I assume you mean in the top 10 of the National Draft twice (not PSD etc)? I can't think of anyone, its so rare to be drafted twice, Luke Ball was a high profile one.
I can't think of the answer without checking the research room
I don't see him ever being capable of being a dominant key forward target (although a handy 2nd / 3rd target). I'd actually really like him to be able to fill multiple roles around the ground, there is always a spot for a 197cm player who can take strong marks and contest well. If he could...
I can't see why we would get rid of Sam. Lack of talent or output hasn't seen him moved on in the past, so I don't see why it would now when he is into his 12th season in 2022 and surely on the verge of reaching his potential.
For a foundation club born in Victoria and existing there for the vast majority of our history, with the majority of our premierships won as a Victorian club, a lot of our supporters really seem to hate Victorians.
