Every time I pick a favorite player they seem to get traded that. First it was jeff farmer in 01, then the next year was woewodin. Then I didn't choose until cale Morton in 2012 he then was traded......so now I pick dawes, hopefully the curse doesn't continue :wink:
For me that started when I was 10 years old and was trying to decide between Gerard Healy and Robert Flower as to who was my favourite player. The next thing I knew, Healy was playing for Sydney. At least I saved Melbourne from losing Flower as one of its legends.

I haven't done a tally, but it seems about a 50/50 split in this thread between people genuinely nominating their fave player and those trying to nominate a spud in order to jinx that spud into being delisted.

So Melbourne.

For the record, I'm totally on the Dawes bandwagon this year.

Watts was for mine for ages, but now everyone has stopped picking on him I'm not quite as horny for him as I used to be (Sorry Jack)

Matty Jones is probably the current fave because I like how red his cheeks are (if he was a cartoon I think he'd be perfect to sell donuts), other than that I really like Vanders and Dom Tyson.

Oh and I like Grimes too but he kind stopped playing for Melbourne so there's that.

Neville. I do like that name. Was almost gone from AFL. His fight and determination now sees him as one of the best small defenders in the game. Very underrated imo.
Probably another tick for roos there. Nev looked lost out there until roos came in and found the perfect role. I still won't forget that Adelaide match where he really kept Betts quite. Since then he really has become the most reliable player in our back 6. And as you said he hasn't had games handed to him, he's really worked hard for his spot.

Nicely complex.

It's funny how the question has to be asked for you to realise you've switched. I somehow have moved from heartthrob Bernie to almost going with Oliver. About 70 percent of that is due to Bigfooty flogs crapping on about him looking like mashed potato. Flogs. Clarry will show them, and I will get my tiny percentage of reflected glory as is just.

AVB and Clarry having taken the mantle from Viney - Look forward to a few years time when someone who is computer literate has enough footage of hits by these 3 set to "I came in like a wrecking ball"
