If I was nit-picking, I’d have Shill a bit higher, probably on the 3rd line with Walters etc. I’d also throw in Ibbotson & Clive on the 5th row. Clive is a dead set rock star.Pavlich, Fyfe
Mundy, Sandilands, McPharlin
Walters, Bell, Johnson, Ballas
Parker, Kickett, Cook, Grover, Crowley, Barlow
Duffield, McManus, Haselby, Mayne, Hayden, Farmer, J.Carr, S.Hill
That's my top list. Each level can be argued RE: order. That's how I remember them (was only 5/6 in 1995 so my memory of the early days was shaky at best). I probably forgot a few but skimming over games played for us, that's how I'd see it. Heart and Pride in the jumper also helped me elevate guys like Kickett, Cook, Crowley, McManus; just pure guts
For that goal against Geelong alone, he could/should definitely be in the next rungIf I was nit-picking, I’d have Shill a bit higher, probably on the 3rd line with Walters etc. I’d also throw in Ibbotson & Clive on the 5th row. Clive is a dead set rock star.
Agree to all this except fyfe needs to kick those clinch goals from 50m out to drag his side through for the win.I have Mundy in the top 5, in the rung below Fyfe, Pav & Sandi. I have him number 1 for consistency and durability. He's an absolute champion.
The Pav vs. Fyfe debate is one that will never be settled, frankly. Pav will always be the spiritual centre of our club given how he stuck by us through some of our most difficult periods, but that's why I think it's unfair to bring this up when comparing the two because it's something that Fyfe won't ever be able to emulate. The only way you can compare the two fairly is on statistical outputs and/or individual accolades.
- Both have won multiple Doig's, All Australian's etc..
- We can all agree that the Brownlow is pretty much a midfielder's award, but Fyfe does have two of them.
- Pav never won a Coleman, which in my eyes is the highest individual honour a forward in the modern-era can hope to achieve - the position he spent most of his career in and had the most output from.
I love Pav, we all love Pav and we can agree that he's the greatest "Docker". Based on achievements though, Fyfe has edged Pav as our best ever footballer, and remarkably, he still has time ahead of him to add to his legacy.
Didnt des headland kick 6?To think that my high school graduation present was premium seats for the Freo vs Collingwood game of 2005 (112pt win).
6 goals for Pavlich
5 goals for McPharlin.
On that night it felt like I was watching the 3 greatest dockers of all time.
good thoughts.For what it's worth, I think the Great Man (Mr Pavlich) is still the Greatest Docker of All Time. Fyfe is the best player to have ever played for the club and is close second behind Pav.
Mmmmm, so it appears you have Pav along way ahead of Fyfe.David Mundy what a footballers footballer, tied for third place with Sandi and McPharlin, the day Fyfe passes Pav for number one is the day Fyfe learns to kick a captains goal. Until then Pav by a nose.
Please keep Desmond's name out of this discussion, he isn't fit to be in the same room as Seany Mac & Shane Parker.
