Not really....Not in football terms, No.

Really? It's not like he's some wild outlier - there are four players on six.

There's half a dozen current players who have played finals in ten years or more, and with player management and sports science getting better (not to mention the financial incentive) it's quite conceivable that 15 - 20 year careers could be increasingly common, which would put this record under threat.
Yes, really.....Those 4 other players on 6 played in eras where there were only 10 & 12 sides respectively; And where dynasty's were far more common than in the modern era, where equalisation of the playing field is the norm.

You don't seem to have made a single point of any significance - so far as a counter goes - here at all.

For a start, it doesn't have to be a dynasty - players can change clubs, you know?

The competition has been around for 120+ years, and could easily go for another 120. You think that in that time, there will never be another player to win seven premierships?

There's only been 1 in 120 years of football & there are now far more teams than there ever has been prior.....Tuck is also only 1 of 4 to have played in over 400 games, so longevity is also another key to it.....I suggest you do the math.
