Still don't mind it. Milburn extremely lucky to make it, Lingy a bit high, Jnr a bit low.
But a decent list.
But I might just be happy someone else rates Scarlett as high as I do.
This. Milburn was a good player, really integral part of a great defence but to make a list like that top 50 you’d want to be one of the first 1-2 players chosen in your area of the field, barring exceptions like when we had Ablett, Bartel, Corey, Ling, Selwood all on the ball.
Milburn would never ever be picked ahead of any of the main defenders he played alongside. Scarlett, Enright, Taylor, Egan if he got a run at it, probably Harley. He’d never be picked ahead of Stewart and a few others later on either. I wouldn’t have put him in a top 50
Edit: Bluey McGrath another one
