Mitchell v Jude might be a debate.

Jude played 4 seasons that were very good for a player at the end of his career and played in the flag.

Mitchell played only 3 full seasons but was arguably a better player during his brief time.
Mitchell was only selected consistently in 2015 and 2016 so it's 2 seasons. Although he was really good I don't think anyone's getting into a team of the decade on the back of two years.

I reckon Jude was still playing really solid football as an inside mid from 2010 until late 2012 when he did his knee against Carlton. Then adapted well as a small forward in his last year.

What an insanely great team!!! Love it, balanced, ball winning, speed and run, heaps of rotations, impacts from the bench and a super sub.

If contribution to Sydney is the only thing in the criteria then Jetta needs to make everyones team.

No flag in 2012 without his season imo
On a similar note Mummy shouldn't be in anyone's team. No doubt he's a better ruck but he fell down the pecking order behind Pyke overtime

I went through these stats in morbid curiosity.

Hitouts 2010-2019

Mike Pyke - 2293
Shane Mumford - 2237
Callum Sinclair - 1576
Kurt Tippett - 1010
Sam Naismith - 712
Mark Seaby - 388

Besides Pyke, a pretty weak decade for ruckmen. I'd pick Tippett as 2nd ruck in this squad over Mumford due to his better ability up forward
