Parkin finished coaching in 2000, so not really a 21st century selection. Ratten has the best record out of the recent coaches.

As mentioned a few times earlier in this thread, ratten is in the team himself. Unfortunately we have had such a shocking 20 years theres no other worthy option.

Okay, fair enough. You could always have Ratts as a playing coach. You could also probably squeeze SOS into the backline as well, with 2 years of playing in this century.

Craig Bradley would start wing/hff/rover above most players in the squad. Kouta would be in the guts with Judd and cripps with Ratten interchange swapping out in guts.

Definitely 80s and 90s braddles would be in the top 3 picked. But this is 21st century team where he played 3 seasons post 37 years of age.
Braddles was still absolutely elite until the end. He was in AA contention up until his final year.

Tied for 14th in the 2000 Brownlow. Tied for 21st the following year.

if were going by brownlow placings, check gibbs, cripps, murphy, ratten, kouta, judd and campo who are all the starting mids in this team. I think youll find all of them have finished top 10 :)

Craig Bradley is one of my very favourite all-time Carlton players. It used to drive me insane when people would rubbish him because he was an outside player. He was a star from the start and simply a brilliant player. His performance in the last quarter of the 87 second semi was unbelievable. Easy selection in the team of the 20th century.

But your memory of the end of his career is very clouded. He finished 10th in the B&F in both 2000 and 2001 and the Brownlow voting is very misleading. I am not sure 2 tenth places gets him in the team of this century.

Fair enough I just thought the criteria was to have played 50 games in the 2000's not how they played in those games if it is on performance during then I agree.
But if it's on career plus playing 50 in that era he is a walk up start.
