He's a gun, but he ain't Leigh Matthews.

Leigh Matthews says Dusty is better than him. Said Dusty had the best season of any player ever.
Leigh says all sorts of silly things these days.
Geez the richmond win has been traumatic for some.
Thank you and goodnight.
It's been an honour and a privilege to correspond with (comfortably) one of the top two dozen footy intellects on BF.
You are indeed fortunate.
They seem to spend more of their time defending it rather than celebrating it, and it's an argument they can't win.
I know North weren't the best side in 99, but that fact didn't stop my enjoyment. The fact we pinched it off our historical nemesis only heightened the experience for me.
Hawks beaten twice in the finals, didn't make the GF. That evens it up a bit. Also, the same logic that applies to possessions being worth more back in the day goes the other way with goals. Lethal wasn't even the Hawks leading goalkicker that year. He also didn't finish top three in the Brownlow. Didn't take out the main media award either.
It's an incredible season statistically, but it wasn't even regarded as the best individual season of 1977.
But Danger did get suspended and the Cats really weren't up to it this year. When Geelong played Richmond in the first final Martin stood up and took control and Dangerfield got swallowed up in the mayhem of the second half of that match.
If you were half as intelligent as you claim to be snake you would have understood what he was getting at and not replied in the way you did
It was in reference to people like you who have melted hard over us dominating the finals and never looking like losing, not what you thought.
Yep, it's a bit of a conundrum isn't it Helen? Whose opinion carries more weight, Snake's or Leigh Matthew's?
He's a cut Snake.
I noticed Dusty failed to win even one Nobel Prize - I thought him a strong chance for the physics, literature and peace prize trifecta. On the other hand, his horse is looking the goods.
no i wasnt
but like i said previously i saw Lockett, Dunstall, Ablett (all kick a shit load of goals vs my club), Ablett. If they had a 'better' season it was not by much.
Won his team the flag and won every individual award that exists.
And dealt with the pressure and media craziness of his contract throughout the year.
like a boss, too
previous players may have spun out with such speculation and 12 million dollar offers
Agreed. Bobby Skilton was a two bit hack. All three of his Brownlows have an asterisk as far as im concerned.
It certainly gets about 30 of you lot up and about on a daily basis.
Hes also a North player. Thats if we listen to your comments.
Fancy anyone thinking Lethal Leigh's opinion as having more relevance the snakey.
Shame on them.
Snake_Baker is more deadly than a brown snake. If he bites you you die of a salt overdose.
He had a amazing season, as good or better than even the great Gary Ablett Jnr in his peak seasons, but I still rank Buddy's 2008 as the best I've seen.
I didn't watch enough of Buddy that year to really judge, but I would understand if someone thought that way. Buddy's best was special.
In hindsight, I think Gary Ablett Jnr impressed me mostly because of his consistently very big statistical output and class more than his absolute intangible impact on games.
I remember him kicking multiple goals and being everywhere... but not like Dusty.
Let's be honest, he should've been suspended for deliberately punching Nick Robertson in the head. Otherwise great season.
The fact that he did that to a guy who had been sniping him all day and got away with it makes his eason greater I would have thought.
