All your basketball talk is on our huge basketball forum.
you mentioning that lead me to discover that Tabs, Tucker, Langdon and AP are in the top 10 for games played for freo on the list currently, which is bloody weirdIts weird to think most people there have only been around for the tail end of Mundy's career. I like Ballas picking an older moment.
Good get that. Was looking for that myself and another he took deep on defence in his 3rd year or so.I've mentioned a highlight from recent times, so here is one from earlier days.
Mundy's hanger the play begins at about 6:45.
such a ripper mark by a ripper player.
some great highlight there
That's a fair call. There's always lots of ambiguity when you start talking 'best player' in a team sport. I mean, if I was starting a team from scratch, McPharlin would be a very early pick because he was THE best key position back we've ever had. But given the importance of the midfield and Mundy's versatility, you can certainly make a good case that Mundy is right up there.Name a better player to have played for Freo?
Not many if any. Pav probably. Fyfe a brownlow and dominant but doesn't have the skill levels as Mundy. His kicking is sublime. I'd personally have Mundy as Freo's second best with Fyfe third.
Always wondered this too. Cox should’ve gone on for one more season to get 300. Only 10 games from that milestone. Jakovich 2nd on 276. So rather interesting WCE don’t have one at all.Congrats to Mundy on his 3Hundy. An exceptional player by any measure.
It is interesting that despite being around for longer than Freo, West Coast is yet to a produce a 300 game player. I wonder why that is? Did the early 00's persian rug use affect player longevity perhaps?
I reckon Alex Pearce could end up better than McPharlin.That's a fair call. There's always lots of ambiguity when you start talking 'best player' in a team sport.

That all said, I'd still have Pav first - his on field leadership was supreme and at his peak (which ran for a pretty long time) he was also very versatile ... but yes, after that, Mundy and Fyfe would be a near tie for mine with both being quite complementary super-stars.
Same with AP. McPharlin spent a bit too much time up forward though. I’d back AP just as much now too. His work against Cameron was elite. Him and Hamling just as good as McPharlin/DawsonThat is a big call. AP is good but when McPharlin was at his best, you always felt confident when he was down back.
