Yep and, tbh, I feared Buddha Hocking more than Ablett Snr throughout the 90’s. Like Ablett Jnr v North, there was little we could do to quell Hocking’s dominance whereas we COULD stymie Ablett Snr.

Buddha Hocking, Gary Ablett, Bill Brownless 0 / 4
Shane Clayton, Shannon Motlop - 1 / 1

Gotta love footy.

Hocking was a gun and was a very underrated player. He isn’t spoken about as much as others during that era.

I think Ablett during the late 80’s was incredible and he had some great H&A seasons during the 90’s(particularly 93). His finals however during the 90’s were nothing compared to Carey. Particularly in the 94 Prelim against us and the GF the following week against WC were horrible. His GF against Carlton the following year wasn’t any better.

Finals is where you make your mark and Ablett was flakey over his career during finals. To me that’s what sets them both apart.
