This is hard. Wellman left us before he really had a chance to be anything really.

I was too young/not alive when either of these guys played for us. Klug is the cooler name, so he gets my vote.

The more salient question is why isn’t Klug pronounced the same way as plug?

The way it’s pronounced it should be spelled Kloog.

Bloke doesn’t even know how to pronounce his own name. I aint votin’ for that. Samcro24

ARE THERE ANY NOTABLE ABSENTEES WHO SHOULD BE IN THE RUNNING
It’s interesting. Matthew Connell won a gold jacket one year if I recall. Surely all best and fairest should be automatically added until eliminated.

We ignore his career away from the crows

Otherwise, Wayne Carey wins this
Well, actually if we want to get really esoteric about it, didn't Brad Moran start a tech company and sell it for like $10m?

Tony Armstrong is doing really well in the media too. :)

Im voting Lippa for his early years 1993 was extemely important in the Finals and the Collingwood game to get us there. Then had a couple of years cruelled by injury. 1996 came in as a midfielder and was our best player in a crap year. 1997-98 again injuries.

Vardy 1997 and 98 very good but pretty much it.

So based on your own logic, you’re going for a guy who had two good years and no contribution to premierships versus a guy who had two good years and significant contribution to premierships.

Sounds legit.
