Alex Jezzas mark
John Colemans mark
Ken Farmers mark

Dont ask me why marks feature so prominently in my mind but I guess it captures the great moment in time rather than a kick, tackle, rib clutch (Dermie) or ball slap (Harmes)

Edit to add - Yes thats a beauty that should be in the top 10..even Buddahs saying WTF

Could nominate pics of the 97 and 98 GF final sirens but I think marks are the great leveller

+1 Jezzas mark
Roach's mark in 1979

Also Ian McKay's mark in the 1952 SANFL GF

He must have kept the photographers on permanent standby:

He was full-back for North Adelaide in the late 40s-early 50s so I'm sure he and Coleman must have stood each other in a state game or two ... that would have been worth seeing

Good batch.

You could add Johnny Dugdales screamer to that lot.





The Merv Hobbs grab is also very iconic.
