Ablett Snr is really 3 as Malthouse the fool didn't put him in his top 25. He also left Ablett Jnr out. The bloke is a twit.

Any other surprises? Who currently can push into the top 25?

I'd take Riewoldt over Goodes, but I doubt that's going to be a popular opinion.
Franklin is the other that will be considered at the end of his career.
Players like Fyfe, Dangerfield will need many years at the top level to be considered.
Up until about 2 years ago I would've said Pendlebury was on the way there as well.
Some may argue Dean Cox should be in there. I'm not too fussed that he was left out.

Malthouse's very cleverly created a controversial list to stay relevant in the media. One of the oldest tricks in the book. People always fall for that crap. David King is another master of it.

David King talks more unadulterated bullsh*t than anyone else in football.

That Gerbil-bottom bloke was some player....Especially when he remembered to catch the bus to the game on time....South Park was a fav of his.
