Too many drinks, meant Dusty was Bucks lite.Dusty doesn't burst from center and bang them home on the run from 65m on the full as consistently as Buckley did.
Also imo Bucks more versatile, finds more of it and better field kick. Didnt see Martin manning up at CHB on T.Cloke like Bucka did on Carey!
People also forget in the later 90s Bucks had a few games where he kicked 4 or 5 goals as a midfielder from midfield (not resting fwd).
Him and Willo had a few games there that stand out.
the best and fairest should be named after bucks without a doubt, no one cares what Copeland did in the 1890sNo worries mate, its heartfelt and genuine. Buckley has done so much for our club and all of us supporters over the journey, sometimes, we all lose sight of the brilliance and joy he gave us over the years.
Would love to see a savvy person with old pies games make a new "highlights" showing different goals, midfield breaks and hitting fwds on the title, some of his tougher work inside, etc
He wasn't just a once in a generation player he was a once in a lifetime!
I was there, and he gave Carey a bath.
Can't comment on Thompson as I'm only going by his stats, however I think Buckley shades Daicos mainly due to his consistently higher level.Buckley was a champion, but jeez Len Thompson and Peter Daicos were a fraction better, and i didn't have the pleasure of seeing Bob Rose or Gordon Coventry.
Its going to be pretty emotional today for Bucks and the players. l'm sure after that final siren blows, all that emotion will come out....I can’t believe how sad it’s been, I can’t imagine how Buckley feels.
Hopefully ends up in some sort of role at the club in years to come
Not sure the club would steer away from the name Copeland. Maybe the club could have the best first year player win the Nathan Buckley award. I know we currently have the best young player award, but maybe make an award for just those in their first year.the best and fairest should be named after bucks without a doubt, no one cares what Copeland did in the 1890s
