    Not to me....Cost us the 2012 flag & then pissed off to the mob he lost it to, after 'getting suspended' for the qualifying final against them in 2013!.....Dog-acts.....And then, to cap it all off, we get pick 19 as compo for him.....Pffft.

    Aside from that, he'll always be a unique player....A 197cm half forward flanker, with pace to burn, phenomenal agility & a 65 meter hook-kick.

    You're behind the times - Kennedy has corrected this routine from his game a couple of years ago! It must have been a long time since you've watched an Eagles game.

    Thread is a disappointment, I thought the OP was talking about Stefan Carey.

    Josh Kennedy has two colemans and nearly got a third even after missing a lot of the season

    I looked at players that started playing from 1995 onward (Carey's last 'solid' year being in 2000). The intention is to discount players whose careers largely overlapped with Carey's, it already being established that Carey was the best forward of his time (for example, Matthew Richardson and Alastair Lynch - both deserving of praise, nonetheless Carey was at the time considered better).

    Using this metric, Lance Franklin and Matthew Lloyd are the clear standouts IMO.

    Matthew Pavlich, Nick Riewoldt, and Barry Hall should get honourable mentions.

    Brendan Fevola could've been part of the Franklin & Lloyd level if his career didn't fizzle. Bit sad.

    Lance Franklin has the chance to break the 1,000 career goal threshold, though. That's notable. So much so, I'd rate him as the best key forward since Carey if he manages to do it.

    Buddy, J Brown or N Riewoldt. These 3 were a level above the other forwards.

    Buddy is the best ever, so the answer is Lance Franklin!


    Jon Brown isnt even in the top 10 since Carey!
