I'd have Buddy at number 3. Dunstall and Hudson at 1 and 2. Brereton has a case for 3 or 4. I'd have Ablett Snr at 5 - I guess that's why we let him go :p

Dunstall, Matthews, Brereton, Buckenara, Ablett ...... that would have been the greatest forward line in history.
The other Hawthorn forward who often gets overlooked, and only played till 83 was Moncrieff. Terrific player.

Think I'll that forward line without Ablett.

Phenomenal highlights package (best ever), but p1ss poor team player.

Yeh' same crap most Ablett haters sprout aloud!
Was a very good team player if you are talking goal assists (80's Ablett) and sticking up for teammates but off the field, perhaps he let his teammates down but you and I never knew the man so can't give opinions on that but as for games, we have that on film to study and analyze.

Wouldn't consider myself an 'Ablett-hater'- I consider him the #3 GOAT behind only Lethal and The King.

As counter-intuitive as it seems, I know it was a good thing for my club when he left post-1982. What made us great throughout that era is at odds with what he possesses, despite his unparalleled talent. And I base that on conversations and relationships I've had with people in AFL circles better placed than most to judge.

Each to their own though.

Your saying his absence was better for Hawthorn.
I think he would have pushed out someone like Curran or Morrissey and averaged 70 goals per year on a half forward flank.

I am saying his absence was better for Hawthorn.

Of course on pure ability he'd get a game. He'd probably be the first picked. But building a premiership team and culture involves more than just talent. The Hawks of the 80's / early 90's was built on discipline and a team-first ethos, he would've been a cancer amongst the likes of the likes of Lethal, Dermie, Dipper, Dunstall etc.
