    I want to say Buddy but this is about opposition players so I’ll say Buddy up until 2014.

    Nathan Fyfe.
    Hope for his sake (and for us as spectators) he can get back to his best.

    When I think about AFL and what it stands for i don't want robotic PC players I want entertainment.
    Greene is the epitome of entertainment, can kick a match winning goal or belt someone. Love it

    I agree completely, I worry his reputation will get him suspended though. A couple of times people have been screaming for blood, so far the judiciary has been impartial.

    Gaff before the Brayshaw incident was near the top of my list. If he stays out of trouble from now on, and continues to deal with it well, that respect will come back
    Barlow (gone now)
    Josh Kennedy (both tbh, but especially WCE one) - met him IRL and he's such a friendly, down to Earth bloke. Willing to have conversation with pretty much anyone, very good public figure for West Coast
    Cunnington

    You could argue that Fev was better. But you'd be wrong.

    Franklin, 290 games, 917 golas

    Fevola 203 games, 623 goals. another 87 games he would have had more.

    He also played in far worse teams.


    Fevola all day long champ

    Underrated player but as smooth a user of the ball as any

    Fully deserved AA honours this year

    1.Isaac Heeney.
    Love the way he plays.
    Heard he is also a top young man.

    2.Ben Brown.
    Same reasons as above

    3. Kade Kolodjashnij.
    Again, love how he plays.
    Heard him interviewed on SEN, and came across really well.

    Toby Greene is entertaining if your tastes include unprovoked assault

    Dusty, Fyfe, Buddy- when they are on it is footy at its finest. Tipangwuti and Degoey are great in full flight too.

    In a previous era, Wayne Johnston (Carlton) was a dead set super star. Absolutely loved the bloke. Epitomized everything a footballer should stand for.
    These days I like the way Clayton Oliver (Melbourne) plays the in & under game, one of the best. Apart from getting knocked out by the passing air of a Will Schofield thumb a few years ago, the boy is a gun. Will win a Brownlow one day.
