As a fellow troll I appreciate good work when I see it. I have to admit I almost fell for this one.
I don’t live under a bridge and I don’t pass judgement on those who do.

That’s probably more of a byproduct due to being #1 for total disposals.

ie- H.McKay & Naughton are 1&2 for total marks inside 50. Is it a surprise they are in the top 7 for total goals?
So Macrae wins a lot of the footy but isn’t damaging

But

Macrae is impacting the scoreboard but only because he wins so much of the footy

Soooooo he is obviously overrated?

It took 25 pages before the OP admitted he hadn’t actually watched Macrae in person all year.

This thread is gold standard stuff!
I can only form an opinion on a player if I had seen this player’s performance live in person more once? Knowing I’m not a dogs supporter.

I’ve never been to the North Pole before but I know it’s full of ice and snow.

Right… so Macrae’s ball winning ability is actually the very reason why he’s so good?? Mind blowing!!!
Oddly enough, other than Parish none of the other top 10 possession getters also rank top 10 for goal assists, and only Parish and Oliver from that group also rank top 10 for score involvements. I'm starting to question whether Macrae's ratings for these categories are due to his disposal count alone, or maybe he is actually a decent player? :think:

Bont is number 1 for score involvements…. Macrae is equal with Oliver and only 2 behind Parish for score involvements….

Not a fan of overseas teams.....
Macrae would be half the player if the AFL had of stamped out flopping when Selwood started doing it all those years ago. Gets way too many high free kicks from collapsing to the ground at the slightest sense of contact.
As aposed to Oliver 🤣

Macrae is going to be AA for a 3rd straight season and is easily a top 10 midfielder, maybe even top 5, in the competition. If anyone doesn't rate Macrae by now, give up watching football.

What an embarrassing thread 😂 A+ for the trolling 👍

Just on the people saying the opposition don't pay him attention- he's been tagged in the past, it did not go well for them 😮
