Here you go!Someone posted an epic collection of posts about Buss in the draft thread (buried and can't find it). Should repost it here
He would be good in any draft, maybe not as high as I've got him now but I imagine he'd be easily top 10 over the past 2-3 years as wellIs Busslinger good because he’s the best kpd prospect in this draft or would he be a good kpd prospect in any draft?
Yes to both, Busslinger is better with some freedom obviously but has shown he's more than capable one-on-one.Can Busslinger play a contested lockdown role?
Do you rate Blake Drury as a contested pressure forward?
On Busslinger, I have some queries about him as a KPD, very good footballer, but I am not sure he will be able to hold down the gorilla type KPF in the AFL, in many ways he plays like a tall attacking HBF.
He may prove me wrong BUT that’s the concern that I have with him.
And we have Bazzo who can already play that role, plus Bazzo can play either end of the ground, if needed.
He played with a dodgy shoulder for the first half of the season (still made All Australian off only two champs games, played a few games against men and went alright) and had to sit out the later half of the season to fix it post surgery. Wont see much of him at AFL land next year but a great one to be beefing up in the stables. Love that he is has elite footy IQ and elite kick. Takes the game on, could be a better Jake Lever (also picked top 10) if it reaches near his ceiling. Still confident he is our best defender in a few years, so long as we keep him happy in Melbourne. We have had a very good record at that ever since Bevo got here
Gun-slinger. Hopefully.Why two 'd's? It's a one 'd' name. Can see it holding him back. Needs a nickname, like 'Buddy' is to 'Lance'. And 2 's's in 'Buss'?! He's up against it already.
Linga-longa? (One for the oldies whose parents had names on holiday shacks!)
