We're talking about Shannon Grant here and not Jarrod Grant right? Cause I'm thinking a few of you have them mixed up.

Grant was a gun. Schwass was better, but Grant was still a gun.

I don't think you watched Schwass enough then I assume.

Nothing to do with Schwass, he's an all time great of the club. I watched him plenty and agree he was a better player than Grant.

But suggestions Grant was scared on the field and not a real North person are preposterous. He was a top player in his own right.

Who said Grant wasn't a North person?

That claim is preposterous.

He certainly became a campaigner off the field. But that really has nothing to do with rating his footballing ability. He was a star.
Not sure I'd say star.

I'm not even sure I'd have him above Cunnington, or even Wells at his best.

No thanks. I'd take Cunnington instead.

And Ben is no star.
What has Cunnington got to do with Shannon Grant’s football career?

Because you are claiming Grant was a star.

He wasn't. Massive exaggeration.

Wasn't you. Someone else said that. I apologise I pinned that on you.

Passmore has summed it up with those stats, there's no denying how good he was. If a 20 year old Shannon Grant was on the market this trade period, every club would have been clamouring for his signature.

Carey was a star.

McKernan (at best) a star.

Schwass a star.

Boomer a star.

Grant has nothing on those guys.

I'd prefer Carey.

Everyone would prefer Carey, that has nothing to do with the conversation. He didn't con his way through 300 AFL games, he was a legitimate star player.
Atley's played over 200 so I wouldn't use games played as a guide to ability.

Grant was a very handy footballer. Josh Kennedy for Sydney might get to 300 too.
