    Rance 6 coaches votes and 2 Norm Smith votes for the GF, and toweled Jenkins up so bad it was embarrassing for him.

    Rance is clearly ahead of Hurley but some posters on here are clearly underrating Hurley.

    Yeah you're right, Rance needs to rack up 30 touches in a 10 goal thumping like what Hurley did in the EF v Sydney. He just made such a big impact in that flogging. Thats what coaches love.

    Lol nah I reckon if you were a coach you'd take his 3rd best on ground in a GF. As judged by the coaches.

    It's all good.
    We're very happy for Essendon to have Hurley while we are stuck with Alex **4 time AA, AA Captain and Premiership Player** Rance.

    What about the 31.3% who are under the impression Hurley is the better player.

    Nah. There was no unseen meaning in your response. It was just plain shit.

    Let me summarise:

    - Rance concedes more as a percentage of opposition than Hurley - consistently
    - Rance was demolished this year more than Hurley
    - Hurley has better disposal and wins more ball
    - Rance played in a way better team this year
    - Hurley plays fair
    - Rance gets away with breaking the rules
    - Rance played in a finals series beyond week 1. Hurley did not. Hurley's home and away season was better.
    - Hurley was better in 2015, came back from a year off and still made AA

    Even if Rance was actually outperforming Hurley in the above points, he is still a consistent scragger and therefore his footballing performances are null. Sorry.

    Haha Hurley is a tall flanker.

    Leading possession getter on the field V Sydney.

    0 coaches votes. Totally ineffectual.

    As a stopper Rance
    Almost everything else I'd take Hurley

    However, if I was making a team from scratch I'd take the best defender in the comp in Rance ahead of Hurley.

    So you prefer cheap meaningless stats over the ability to dominate a game with 10 touches??

    You cant say hurley in everything but stopping then say youd take rance lol

    No one's underrating Hurley, he's either the 2nd best or 3rd best KPD in the game. That's not "clearly underrating"

    McGovern would be my #2 personally, leading towards Talia at 3 and Hurley at 4 with Lynden Dunn (Heath Grundy) rounding it out at five. Special mentions to May, Astbury based on this year, the Port Adelaide trio and the like. There are some seriously good key defenders going around at the moment.

    Hurley hasn't won a final and he's a drug cheat.
