Pittard probably would.

It's not as bad as it looks - I mean, there are 18 teams, so the naive expectation is that most teams have one in the top 25, with the better teams having two.
Well no, it's no surprise the two grand finalists have 3 x players in that list.

I was probably doing a bit of a disservice to Witherden, Howe and Maynard.

Who should all be in there and it's a trend that the top teams entire medium defensive stocks are better than our best.

I always copped blowback for it but that's why I liked Mullett. He was far from a complete player but at least in his run and long kicking/goals he had WEAPONS.
I know he didn't do anything at Carlton but I honestly don't think we handled his development well (like quite a few others) - then he lost some pace due to injury and done. Was always a fan and in fact I think his best was quite impressive.

He was very handy in 2013-14 and pretty much the only player I can recall since Turtle who could burst out of defence and score against the play.
