Using the team of the century (20th century) as a base, who from the last 20ish years would make their way into the all time Tigers team, considering we've won 3 premierships in 4 years.

The original team of the century was:

B: Kevin Sheedy - Vic Thorp - Michael Green

HB: Basil McCormack - Gordon Strang - Mervyn Keane

C: Francis Bourke - Bill Barrott - Dick Clay

HF: Matthew Richardson - Royce Hart - Roger Dean

F: Dale Weightman - Jack Titus - Bill Morris

Ruck: Roy Wright - Jack Dyer - Kevin Bartlett

I/C: Matthew Knights - Ian Stewart - Des Rowe - Geoff Raines



IMO the strongest contenders are Grimes, Rance and Cotchin. Dusty is obviously a lock to come in somewhere. Then there's guys like Vlaustin who I rate incredibly highly. Also Jack?

Thoughts?

Jack would have a spot, even if it's only on the bench. Dusty is a lock. Rance is one of the best modern defenders and Cotch is our most successful captain of all time (not that means he would be in the team) Im not gonna make a team as i wouldnt have a clue being a young tiger fan born in 2003

Michael Green is a great inclusion. If you don't know his story then it's worth reading up on.

Yeah it was a toss up between him and Cotchin and while it could be said that they are pretty even with Martin in front of Cotchin, Cotchin is the ever impressive Captain who has led his team to three fantastic premierships.
If it was on individual brilliance i would of bought in Martin for Bill Barrott.

Nobody, I repeat nobody pushes KB out from the first rover spot. Love Cotch, but I can't have that one.

I have reported this post. I do not want to see another team without Vic Thorp in it.

Not better, just from a different era. The defenders from those times were purely there to stop the forwards. He was a great of the game in his time & should be identified as such. Let’s remember that the players had to earn a living outside of football right up to the 80’s & even some into the 90’s.
