Dusty for me. Prefer a mid that can kick 5 over one who can accumulate 40 touches.
And he wasn't even the best player that year either. Dangerfields 2017 was better..Idiot Richmond nuffie logic.
Which is why Castagna is better than Richo according to the Tiger nuffies.
Dusty had one season, 2017, where he played a season of footy at a level that Gaz Jnr was at for about 6/7 years.
Only a few Richmond nuffs try to cherry pick a few scenarios to make arguments for Dusty.
I was talking coaches award finishes....ya nong.
GAZjnr won it three times on the trot 07,08,09....and then 6th in his final year at the Cats. When was at GC he finished 5th, 3rd, 2nd and 5th.
If you want brownlow Gaz went
4th, 3rd, 1st, 2nd, 5th, 5th, 1st, 2nd
So across an 8 year period, Gaz was top 5 in brownlow and coaches basically every year...and the players gave him 5 MVP gongs during this span, and he won 5-6 club BnFs.
That is sustained brilliance that nobody else gets close to, 8 consecutive seasons where coaches, players, umpires ranked him in top handful in output and performance (not reputation).
Dusty only had two equivalent years 2017 (which was amazing) and 2016.
But yes, Dusty had a good game in a belting of the Giants so is better...Richmond nuff logic
The mvp is named after matthews labeled the best player of the last century.
Best finals player is named after Gary Ayer’s medal not the best player of the last century.
Multiple MVP list here the best of the best on it.
Poll looks like it could go either way at the moment...
Again GAJ got 2 MVPs at the Suns because he was the only player not 18 years old, people just don’t think so they. “bUt He DoMiNaTeD tHe CoMp FoR 7 YeArs” at a club that didn’t make finals, yeah would be shaking in my boots going up against GAJ at the Suns
Your whole logic on MVP is laughable. It has nothing to do with being the most valuable player in your team. It is simply the best player as voted by the players. Otherwise midfielders would never win it. Would be guys like Stewart and May.Brownlow 2, coaches award 3. Therefore it is closer to 3 than 7. GAJ playing at Gold Coast inflated his MVP record by default.
Nostalgia. People don’t remember a players bad games once somebody retires only good ones thus making them think they were better than they were. Case and point being GAS do you hear anybody talk about his bad games at the pub? I don’t just good ones. It’s like they forgot his other poor finals games which he had more off existed. Wait 5 years after Dusty retires to be fair at least.
That doesn't really make sense. The MVP is voted by all players from all clubs.
Luckily Jeremy Howes, Will Hoskin-Elliot, Jack Crisp, Darcy Cameron, Taylor Adams and Patrick Lapinski aren't playing for Collingwood this weekend.
