Not just a bit harsh, but lacking in the same rigour of analysis that you've attempted with your own team I'd say.I am a bit harsh on North. I dont see any A-grade mids. I see a few solid mids. they were extreme on both ends. One week they kick 1 goal vs Geelong, the next week they kick 23 goals vs Port. They finished above freo in 2019 but thats due to their shinboner spirit of guts and determinaton.
Higgins and Cunnington are A grade mids in my opinion. Higgins has been AA, Cunnington features in the top 3-5 statistically in the contested ball/clearance type statistics, with many neutrals acknowledging his underrated status. Goldstein too, has been in the top 3 rucks for many years.
"A grade" is, of course, subjective not just in terms of who qualifies, but in what we think 'A grade' means.
