The bottom line is really who cares now? The point has been driven home. How many different ways can Richmond supporters like you articulate that Dusty is better? Nobody is arguing against Dusty being the better footballer
Another way it can be argued that Dusty is better is footy IQ. He's in the 120s, poor old Danger is in the 70s.

I wouldn't argue it that way! Danger is still dangerous and unrivalled with his explosiveness. He can't do it all on his own, but he can still tear a team apart. Sadly we are yet to see what he can do in a GF

Its a bloody tough call...

I would prefer to hang out with Danger than I would Dusty though

Danger is an odd dude but he is clearly self effacing and seems good fun.

Dusty comes across as a grade A dick.

Though I doubt dusty would have a drink with a rando like me anyway, but I reckon Danger would.

Not sure why they should get upset about my little opinion.

I prefer the company of oddballs than dickheads.

As for the topic of the thread, I honestly can't choose. Danger seems the better player week by week but you cant argue that Dusty doesn't do it when it counts. Both are explosive as all fu**, good to watch.

Interesting observation. The general consensus re Dusty is that he is a very quiet introverted bloke who does meditation, mindfulness (whatever that is) etc. Very popular at the club, great mates with Cotchin who is the model AFL boring/player. Even on the field he is pretty quiet.

The only thing I've learned about him from the last three years of doing interviews, is that he doesn't really look comfortable doing interviews.*

(* - Especially when McAvaney had him in a bear hug at the Brownlow a couple of years ago. Even for McAvaney that was unbelievably creepy.)

Ablett and Scarlett are the only 2 that are equals or better then him.
Martin is famous for his Septembers (rather quiet during the season). But even in September he's no Chapman, SJ. or Jimmy Bartel. Those guys dominated finals more in one game than Martins finals combined (and the season). Martin hides behind defenders and sneaks a goal or doesn't argue. He's a star but his current fame is getting ridiculous

To be fair, Paul Chapman's finals statistics are almost identical to Martin.

1.7 goals v 1.6 goals.
23 disposals v 19 disposals.
2 Premierships v 3 Premierships.
2 Norm Smith's v 1 Norm Smith.

And Chapman faced much stronger opposition such as Collingwood 09-11, St Kilda 08-11, Hawthorn 11-15 so it's reasonable to compare the two.
Of course, when it comes to respective careers in their entirety, Martin is head and shoulders above Chapman but when it comes to September . . . Chappy is highly regarded by many as a big game performer.

No denying Chapman went alright and played up in finals with that bald nut being prominent.
