    Your first point on Gibson/Lake is just crap, given I stipulated Lake's dominance as a Doggie Full Back....So your equivocation there just serves to highlight & expose your sleight-of-hand motive & agenda.

    Rance has only come to the fore in the past few years....When he has 3 premierships under his belt, then come & see me.....He would be in the convo for the decade of 2015-2024 most likely.

    If I was one-eyed, then the entire side would be chock full of Hawk players & not just the 7, which Geelong shares the equal rep count for....We have the most Premierships in the era, the most Grand Final appearances & along with the Cats, the most finals played & best finals win/loss ratio.

    As I stated earlier....Harvey was unlucky & would be the next one included....A premiership would have helped.

    hahaha. My agenda in this situation is to hold you accountable for straight up ignorance.

    You stated that Gibson was the best defender in the team. I would argue that the Full-Back position is generally regarded as a defender's position.

    Secondly, I don't remember mentioning Harvey but while we are on the topic, he HAS a premiership (You know your football, clearly).

    Thirdly, The idea of picking players based on premiership numbers is absurd. Premierships are won as a unit.
    Better chuck Liam Shiels in for Ablett cause Ablett only has 2 premierships. Screw the brownlows and countless AA's.

    Rance coming to the fore in the last 2 years?? He was AA in 2014.

    You have a very average knowledge of the game.

    If your agenda entails exposing your own ignorance for the delineated era up for discussion then congrats, you've succeeded were most others couldn't.

    I love how you try to use the most unnecessary words in your vocabulary because you know you've had a shocker here but you don't even know the difference between 'were' and 'where'.

    That's a good side....It's not a mega-multi premiership winning one.....But a fair side none the less.

    I'd have Chapman in ahead of Tip-Rat everyday of the week....What was Milne's finals record like?.....Not terribly good.

    2x pre-season premierships got him over the line. ;)
