If people are stuck in the 80s/90s nostalgia then in theory one can be stuck in present day individual awards / preset day hype that everything must be better today.The problem is people are stuck in the 80s/90s nostalgia to see Abletts greatness. If being the record holder in all of the games greatest individual awards isn't an indicator to his greatness then nothing will change the mind of people who grew up with football in another era.
That said, to suggest Gary senior and his record is nostalgia, I’m sorry it is far more than nostalgia. Senior dominated with such a dynamic that few have ever possessed. His freakish acts, GAJ just has never ever done.
Not one person is saying GAJ isn’t a gun, elite, a great player but there is a counter argument that there are better players.
I respect your opinion.
