I have learned over the years not to throw the 200 game tag around lightly.
When David Zaharakis joined Essendon his first game of VFL was so far above the grade they were forced to bring him in. Seven goals from memory and 30 odd touches.
Zaharakis will play 200 for the club but he is not without his critics.
McVeigh didn’t make 200. Rama didn’t. Peverill (remember his first season?) didn’t. Ken Fraser, Michael Long, Sean Wellman, Alec Epis, Alan Noonan… all under 200. There’s actually only ~30 in history that have.
200 games is a massive achievement at AFL level. Let’s wait for Kobe to make his debut.
