We haven't developed a high quality KPF since Warren or a quality ruck since Lade, Primus & Brogan you can spin it anyway you like but no damned lies there.Teekray! You prove my point! This is exactly the sort of rubbish statistic that gets wheeled out ad nauseam here on Bigfooty.
Come back with figures on how many "top line key forwards" have premiership clubs like Hawthorn, Richmond, Collingwood, and the Swans, developed since Warren's time. Never mind the likes of Fremantle, Carlton, Essendon, St Kilda etc.
The figures for ruckmen are even worse with many of these clubs! VERY few clubs develop ruckmen from draft to stars. The very few exceptions are the Grundy-type first round picks, and quality talent that falls though the cracks. We have one of those in Hayes, who will be a superstar IMO ... But hey, statistically Port cant develop players! So sorry Hayes, statistics say you are doomed!
I get it that people are angry, but if you are going to use statistics to back up arguments that are flawed, then do it properly! Otherwise they remain "Lies, damned lies, and statistics."
