Rancey and Dusty will be right up there. How exciting is it, that we are currently watching 2 players, that at the end of their careers could be in the top 3-5 players Richmond has ever had! Savour it!!
And seriously not too far behind them both...Cotch, Grimes and JR! What a time to be alive!

I challenge anyone to watch this and tell me Dusty isn't already number 1.


I'm 45 and have seen the best of KB, Rioli, Weightman, Richo. Never saw Hart play, nor Stewart, Clay or Barrot. Only saw Francis Bourke in the final years of his career.

Dusty beats all of them IMHO.

^ Im in my 50s and would have Royce as no. 1. He was CHF in the team of the century, that counts for a lot in my book.

KB would be 2nd and Dusty 3rd.

I don't know why they have Raines in the top 10. I was a fan of his but no way is he one of our GOATs

KB the greatest tiger player of all for me...because for 403 games he was HUNGRY
Watching that Martin highlight reel of just 1 season...GEEZ...

Dusty amazing , as good as any player ever but not better than Royce Hart. Both elite . IMO When you get to the top there are just those players who reach the pinnacle and that's as good as it gets. Hart and Martin are both in that class.

Paddy Guinane - Kicked 4 in the first ever game I saw. Big and strong with great hands... iffy kick at best!
:thumbsu: As an 11 year old this giant of a man came out to school in Perth with a couple of other VFL team footballers, I remember how big Paddy Guinane was, blazer & tie, slicked 50s style hair - he went OK v WA on Subi the next weekend..

28. Neil Balme - Could play and did terrorise!
Balmey was 16 when he debuted for Subi (1968), rucked against Polly who suggested he had a promising career ahead - debuted for the Tiges in 1970.

He was on the verge but decided to leave and Collingwood,Essendon and Brisbane sunk him to mediocrity. So I also dont know why is up there.

Almost none of us including old pricks like me didnt see Hart but the way people talk about him has me thinking that anything Dusty does then Hart was doing the same back in his day.

Just a reminder about Royce Hart...

74 Grand Final I was there watching...I have vague memories of that match!
All I can remember was Sheedy, KB and Hart!
Hart was just a beautiful mover over the ground around CHF and when he kicked for goal, his ball drop and kick was a thing of beauty to watch!
Royce Hart was the best CHF back then full stop! 74 was not at his peak but still good enough to play in the GF...
