ill have a think later and put together what I think would be my best.
I couldn't have Giles, and can't imagine Finlayson makes it either.
Some names I think would come into consideration not currently named by you would be Griffen, Patful, Wilson, Stevie J (prob not 50 games) and Lobb.

I know Cornes didn't get 50 games but he was great for us early days, really showed the kids at the time what it took to be an AFL player.

Griffen and Patful (along with Shaw and Mumford) were the pieces that said we no longer a development team.

Think I'd pick Stevie J over Finlayson.

Scully was only good for 2-3 years - but they were very, very good years - but who do you swap him with, Griffen maybe (who was a total flop IMO)

Well, knowing the guidelines (50 games+) and taking in the recent memory bias. I think the OP has done a great job, period.

Personally, I'd love to fit in Griffen because I genuinely feel that those early days were much harder than so many people (maybe not on here) realise. I really rate him.

Otherwise, future looks good.

Think I'd pick Stevie J over Finlayson.

Stevie J only played 40 games for us

and while he in an infinitely better player than TOJ… most of that was for another team first

he would certainly rank in the “best players to have played for GWS” category, but not necessarily “Best GWS players” if you get my drift. That said, he did give us very good service during his time with us (unlike some others who treated it like an early retirement home)

Just wishe he didn’t do what he did in the Qualifying final. Not having him for the prelim and not having Ward for most of it also, rewrote history.

Agree Griffen was super important for us, so was Patfull. (The other 3 get plenty of credit Mumford,Shaw and Stevie J)
They were the signings that took us from development team to winners

He is the hardest player to rate for me.
He was good for us, but clearly his best days behind him.
But he was important in giving us belief and kind of as the old saying goes made us walk taller.
All the intangibles that are hard to quantify apply to Stevie J
It was also as above.part of where ready to win moves.
I'd have him in before ToJ, but not sure where he sits.

Smith gets an automatic ban based off his Graveyard comments.
Shiel wouldn’t get a spot in the interchange, Green already so far ahead of him to warrant a spot.
