Graham is still in and out of Richmond’s side

He’s better than poholke but he’s no star, just a good ordinary player

And def not someone to give a crap about missing out on
Wow something we agree on. Graham is a textbook example of a player who is overrated on account of him playing in a successful, flag winning side.

DM is still on the main list and not eligible for captain of the 2s.
I think Matty Wright is playing on or we would have heard that he's not.
Mackay can be SANFL captain, can’t be? Or were Keath and Greenwood still technically Cat B rookies when they were co-captains?

Is he overrated?

He completely turned the tide of a GF. Went to the player who, up until then, was the most influential player on the ground - instrumental in getting us away to a flier.

Graham not only cut Sloane out of the game but kicked 3 goals himself.

He may not have risen to those heights again ..yet. But he’s still young. Bit to play out yet.

Not overrated I wouldn’t have thought

We have very different ideas about what "getting off to a flier" actually means.

Originally rules were had to be someone straight off list. Hence Callinan. After he retired we had no one eligible so gave it top up Carey. Following year Keath and Hugh. Then last year they loosened the rules to allow us to recruit a captain over 25. No rules on who. We got Wright and Port got Sutcliffe.

This may be the wrong thread, sorry if it is but I am responding to a comment above.
Why all the hate for David Mackay on this board? I don't understand it. He is a Crows player so should be supported by the "supporters" on this board.
He has played 206 AFL games and kicked 59 goals and been on an AFL list since 2008. I think the term used is that he is a spud, but spuds do not play over 200 AFL games.

To play even 1 AFL game you need to be a fairly decent footballer. I don't think there would be many posters on this board who have played even 1 AFL or SANFL game even.

Ease up on the lad.

31 - Andy Otten (Adelaide)

The much-admired Crows veteran called an end to his career at West Lakes but not before posting an extremely consistent SANFL season. An invaluable leader on and off the field, the 30-year-old averaged more than 19 disposals at 87 per cent disposal efficiency across 17 matches. Will be interesting to see whether Otten lands at another SANFL club in a playing-coaching capacity for 2020.

40 - Myles Poholke (Adelaide)

The strong-bodied midfielder threatened to tear the competition apart in some matches this season, evidenced by his performance against South in Round 4 when he booted four goals from 30 disposals, eight marks and five clearances. Ranked fourth in the Crows Best and Fairest, the 21-year-old averaged 21 possessions while also ticking the scoreboard over with 20 majors for the season.

Decent pick up by the Panthers, probably offers enough to still be on an AFL list somewhere, decent up forward and goes alright on ball.
