    End of next year Treloar will sit in behind Pendlebury DeGoey and Adams

    Not IMO, Treloar will become a top 5 mid in the comp IMO.

    Very different players but Danger has a bit on Pendles, better comparison would be Pendles v Selwood.

    Poll was made a couple years back, Pendles rightly ahead I believe.

    Anyways, Danger>Pendles ATM obviously, but career wise hard to split probably Pendles still but Danger would only have to have another season or two at the top for that to change.

    Pendles has never had a 'career' year, there have been times when he was clearly the best mid in the comp only to be slowed up by an injury (most of whom he has played through), so IMO he's been a bit unlucky, could've easily won a Brownlow or 2, but as it stands now he isn't going to get any better so the bird has probably flown on his Brownlow chances.

    Yeah but the consistency over such a long time needs to be taken into consideration, Danger has only been arguably a top 3 mid for roughly 3 years. Needs to continue to do what he does.

    Pendlebury will never dominate the competition

    And Danger will never win a premiership.

    Fun fact - Pendles has less clangers in his 17 finals (35) than Danger has in 10 (41).

    Not quite. Been a top 10 player however. Won't be remembered like Danger/Ablett

    The guy who spends time as the #1 player in the comp tends to win out against consistent top 10 players. Even if they aren't up the top for as long.
    Pendlebury will be remembered in the same vein as guys like Simon Black or Ben Cousins (minus off-field issues). Dangerfield is likely to be in the company of Judd and Goodes and those era defining players. Dangerfield is even still a chance to catch GAJ if he can keep up his current level for about 3-4 more years.

    No way will he be remembered as much as those players. Maybe as much as Garry Hocking.

    Ha, how?

    He can hardly "dominate the comp", considering he wasn't even Collingwoods best player.
    He still hasn't stepped out of Swannys shadow.

    I don't know
    when was these years pendles was clearly the best mid in the comp? have you heard of gary ablett? then came fyfe and mitchell. then came dangerfield and now martin. Pendle was never close to the best mid. There was hardly a stage where he was even better then selwood.

    Right now, it's Dangerfield.
    Over their whole careers, it's Pendlebury.

    Pendlebury is criminally underrated on bigfooty. He is an all time great of the Pies.

    Swan and Pendlebury were two of the top 5-10 midfielders in the league from 2010-2013. 2014 was when Swan declined and Pendles jumped into the top couple and didn't leave until arguably this year. Pendlebury is a generational midfielder and his consistency eclipses Swan.

    Pendlebury was the league's best player in 2011.

    Wonder how many who voted early 2016 for Pendles would change their minds. I suspect most would.

    Fun fact - Dangerfield has as many goals in his last 5 finals (7) as Pendles has in his 17 finals.
    Arbitrary facts are pointless facts is the take home message.
