    Give reasons why please, not supporters, more so clubs that are guilty of really overrating their players whether at the trade table, through promotion or even historically reflecting.

    Essendon. Just look at the threads about Joe ‘barndoor’ Daniher on the main board.

    How would any of us armchair critics know what any club thinks internally?

    Essendon.
    Adrian Dodoro is the most overrated person in football.

    I quite like him, he kindly gave us an AA defender for a second round pick.

    I dunno... seems like there’s a reasonable suggestion that Richo really rates Newnes and Billing’s above the untouchable line

    It has to be Essendon. Just has to be. Why else top up with Stringer?

    Imagine being as incompetent at your job as he is and not only do you continue in your role for years but get promotions.

    Carlton has a long history of this given their recent levels of success in that time, they win this.

    First thing that comes to mind is Mick Malthouse and Daisy Thomas.

    Subtle thread.

    Hurley is better than Rance.
    JD is the best key fwd
    Merrett is better than the rest.

    Add Saad, Stringer and Smith - instant flag.

    This is our first. Being down the bottom and getting number one draft picks doesn't mean you are rebuilding. We took those picks and still kept trading picks to get back up there quickly. Half arsed all the way.
