    Dangerfield gets all the media love. And rightfully so because he's a gun. But in my opinion Dusty is just as good. If it wasn't for his tattoos and his father who has bikie connections would he would be getting more love from the media ? An absolute champion. And deserves as much hype as Patty.

    Dangerfield in a canter. Not even close. He's also somebody you actually want around your club.

    Underrating him a bit here because really he should be up there for GOAT contention.

    Martin isn't as damaging with his touches, last week he got a ton of it and was t overly effective. Was very good today though.

    Has Martin figured out how to play a whole game not just a half yet ?

    ... but is he as good as Cyril???

    Media would lead you to believe that he is some out of this world supernatural being or something based on their carry-on

    To clarify, Dusty is nowhere near Dangerfield as a player.
    But he is very, very good nonetheless. Won't get much love on here though.

    Nothing warrants a shit thread more than after a win against Essendon.

    Honestly, only see 2 teams out of the current Top 8 where Martin "may" be a Top 5 player for if he joined them.

    Almost - he is a contested possession beast like Dangerfield. If he was playing with Geelong instead of the Tigers he would attract similar numbers. Would still have Paddy - Martin is a headcase.
