    Hi Bay,

    Now that we have established that 2016 was the greatest season of VFL/AFL/sub-standard state league football of all time and the game has been in a steady decline ever since, it's time to reflect on the players which once again served to make us, the viewing public, feel better about ourselves.

    In an era of increased professionalism and financial reward so increases the level of public scrutiny. With this in mind we, as the Bay brethren, have a duty to AFL, sport in general and the wider society, to ensure that scrutiny is well directed. Let's direct.

    The rules
    - My listings are final. If you disagree with me, you are wrong.
    - The order is roughly sorted in some fluid manner.
    - Players with less than 20 games in total are excluded, although there is some small allowances given for extraordinary spudness in the face of battle - especially for players who have spent extra time in the AFL environment and/or were first round picks.
    - Players who have not played a senior game this year are excluded, and only in extraordinary spudness in the face of battle can this rule be broken (the "Colin Sylvia" rule).
    - Weightings have been granted for those who are over-rated, over paid, divers, are noted squibs and/or who are overtly Gen Z/Hipster.

    The list
    50 - Tom Liberatore
    49 - Cyril Rioli
    48 - Tomas Bugg
    47 - Mark Lecras
    46 - Shane Mumford
    45 - Fletcher Roberts
    44 - Mark Blicavs
    43 - Shane Kersten
    42 - Daniel Menzel
    41 - Travis Colyer
    40 - Tory Dickson
    39 - Trent McKenzie
    38 - Cameron "Cam" McCarthy
    37 - Craig Bird
    36 - Billy Hartung
    35 - Jack Watts
    34 - Shaun Atley
    33 - Tendai Mzungu
    32 - Todd Goldstein
    31 - Jarrad Grant
    30 - Mitch Honeychurch
    29 - Dean Kent
    28 - Billie Smedts
    27 - Aaron Black
    26 - Travis Cloke
    25 - Jesse White
    24 - Nick Suban
    23 - Clay Smith
    22 - Tom Hickey
    21 - Brent Stanton
    20 - Blaine Boekhorst
    19 - Paddy McCartin

    Vickery will be the first time I won't be disappointed when a Hawthorn player makes it.

    I'm feeling a Vickery/Mayne quinella.

    Expecting Boyd and Stringer to finish around 30 and cause some melts for not finishing higher.

    Tippett to be Top 5/10 too.

    And y'know I don't think it's undeserving either.
