Ablett Jnr but its 2022 so the answer is Christian Petracca

Different players.
Ablett jnr was a dominant midfeider who accumulated possessions at will.
Dustin is the ultimate big game player and probably the greatest finals player of all time.
I prefer Dustin.
More of a team man.

GAJ was bloody selfish with his running patterns.
Lots of loopy hanballs then run around for the one two so he can double his stats.

Dusty is always looking to move the ball fwd or to somebody in a better position.

All things being equal, the chances of one player winning 3 Norm Smiths in his 3 grand finals is 44 to the power of three which equals 85,184 to 1.

You forgot to add only player ever to win all 3 major medals in the same season and 3 Garey Ayes Medals. One of a kind and will never be beaten

Ablett, but it's close. Seems to be forgotten that he can hold his head high after a one-that-got-away loss of 2008.

Can't really say the same for Martin re 2018, which is worth bringing up if we're saying finals performances are supposedly in his favour.

AP gets upset with the Hawkins v Riewoldt poll results.

Decides to start another poll.

Indications are that this poll result will also upset AP.
