Remarkable stat - we have 3 of the top 20 tacklers and yet we'd probably be the lowest tackling team (certainly feels that way)

Everyone else must be sitting on their hands.
Probably by design, let those three do the tackling while the others dothe kick mark which WCE specialise in.

A tackler is usually not available to recieve the next pass so having too many tacklers in your team wouldn't work.

Reckon individual tackle numbers are only relevant to the individual. So don't mean much.

Team pressure ratings and team tackle numbers seems to be the stat that influences games of football.

If Jack Steele was still playing for the Giants everyone would be frothing over him but he barely gets mentioned these days even though in my opinion he is the best tackler in the league. In saying that Yeo is the 2nd best and you take him over Steele every day of the week.

It is a bit that way. After 20 rounds the next best after your top 3 is Oscar Allen on 55. Most other teams quite a few around the 60-80...

would be interesting to see a "most terror, fear and pain inflicted per tackle" statistic because Jed Anderson would have to be at the top of that list
You've clearly never seen Nic Nat or Mumford lay a tackle. Soon as they get hold of you, last thing you'll be wondering is what food they'll be serving for breakfast in the hospital tomorrow morning

I know he doesn’t have any tackle numbers worth mentioning but Mabior Chol tackles like he wants to kill the oppo player. I think the oppo players are aware of that too!

Nn out injured - seeing as the mrp pretty much invented a rule midseason for him if he werent injured that would be his crown
Yeo's been pretty terrifying this season. Has buried so many bodies into the ground this season. Feel sorry for the Carlton kid on debut trying to take him on.

Richmond supporters upset none of their players were mentioned in a thread, and try make it about their players and/or mention the 2017 Grand Final.

I’m shocked.
Stop being childish. The poster was simply pointing out that using averages, there is another player from another team whose numbers stack up with the leaders.

God forbid we have a facts based discussion on BF without some young child turning this into a s**tfest.
