Yep completely agree, Cripps is a beast, but the Dogs have a few that can do a similar (albeit not as bull-like) job. Bont is unique and very hard (if not impossible) to cover with the remaining players on our list. Inside/outside/link man/forward/leadership etc etc.I get what you're saying, but I actually do think both clubs would be weaker by swapping. Carlton need the big, unstoppable body from Cripps, while Dogs need the class and composure that Bont offers. At least for the Dogs, we have guys like Dunkley and Macrae who would be too similar to someone like Cripps, while I don't think Bont would be as good as he is if he were at Carlton where there's less midfield support around him.
Absolutely love watching the Dogs/Carlton games and seeing them go head to head. Even if they don't play on each other, seeing them both trying to drag their side across the line and being an obvious tier above the rest is such a spectacle
