Exactly, so wouldn't you value his AA this year as a better indication of his achievements because he was selected against the best in the comp?
So Marc Murphy - also had a great year didn't get in the 40 man squad yet Doc makes the team. Who had the better year? Murphy for me.

Hurley is a 2 time AA backmen. He is 1 or 2 from this draft. He is much better than JZ, Hill, Sidebottom, Rockcliff & Shuey.

I get the feeling there is no point arguing with you on Hurley .

But not sure Wright and to a lesser extent Robinson have claims to top 20 considering you've left out T.Lynch and N.Jetta.

Don't get me wrong, he has been a great player, but the last half of his career has dropped away due to various circumstances.

Lynch, yes (amended). Jetta, no.

The glaring one to me, is Natanui. He has only cracked 20 touches twice and never taken more than 6 marks (twice) in 147 games.

The hype over here on him shits me no end (was on the front page of The West recently just completing training, lol) but this underrating of him displays massive ignorance.

I get that he has an excitement factor about his game and he is from an exotic background, but when you do the hard numbers, it's not hard to conclude that the bloke has been massively over-hyped up until this point.

How many matches has he won for the Eagles? Two? Three?

If he's worth a million bucks a year, the Josh Kennedy is worth $2 million.

If you watch him play, rather than just looking at the numbers you will see he is the most influential player in the league.

Where on the stats sheet does it show him pressuring 3 players at once and forcing a turnover?

He’s been AA in the last two seasons he’s played. He’s comfortably a top 5 KPD in the comp, generally regarded number 2 behind Rance. Not sure how that equates to his career dropping away but ok.
