    Every now and then Carey has to say something stupid to remind us how much of a mug he can be.

    The real question is is Jack better than Leigh Matthews?

    Read the first bit of my post, actually Ill quote it for you.
    "of course Buddy is a better player than Riewoldt "
    The rest of my post was highlighting the fact that although Buddie is a better player Jack is pretty good himself, the role he played this year helped in a big way to win a flag, Jack had a pretty good GF, better than Buddies last, but yes overall Buddie is a better player, just dont underrate Jack.

    Buddys played 5 gfs, pretty harsh to judge him on one.
    Especially since he hurt his ankle in the opening minutes and need shoulder surgery straight after.

    That wasnt my intention this is a silly comparison I mentioned because I think that was the point Carey was trying to make, Jacks game helped us in a big way to win a flag whereas Buddie only managed 1 goal last year himself, Jack is a great player hes won Colemans AA etc but Buddie is a once in a generation player.

    You might want to re read my post before ya get all high and mighty. I didn't compare Franklin with Riewoldt, I did with other forwards. I also said Franklin was being underrated in this thread, and that he was the most marked forward in the comp. i.e. the best. I know Franklin is the best forward in the league, has been for a decade, but I'd have Riewoldt before many others.

    Everyone has an an opinion- it's our democratic right. Most people will think Buddy is rated better, a small amount Riewoldt. I think Carey just likes Riewoldt's style and defensive pressure.

    Buddy's defensive pressure never gets a mention.

    Jack is a very smart footballer with an excellent football brain. He reads it expertly.

    Same argument goes comparing JR with his cousin Nick.
    Jack played a team oriented game, and year; sacrificing his own. Arguably he’s the most skilful player on Richmond’s list.
    If we had Buddy, I doubt we would have even played off for the GF.
    Carey is smart enough to recognise what Jack does where others don’t.

    Buddy’s played in 5 cause he’s played in fantastic teams
    That’s the point; best team versus best individual s.
    So satisfying that best team prevailed over individual talent ( eg GWS, Geelong)

    What GWS would now do for a Townsend who they delisted because he wasn’t skilful enough.

    Carey's just trying to survive in an industry that thrives on the ridiculous. To remain relevant, the media have to make these shit calls from time to time so they can survive. The problem for Carey is he just isn't that bright.
