This list shows where he sits of Essendon greats well IMV:
Leading Essendon W.S.Crichton Medal Winners
Bill Hutchison, King Richard Reynolds (7)
_ James Hird (5)_
_ Simon Madden, Tim Watson (4)_
_ Jobe Watson, Graham Moss, Tom Fitzmaurice, Barry Davis, Wally Buttsworth, John Birt, (3)_
He would’ve undoubtedly won more in different circumstances too.
All great players in their own ways, and almost all with more EFC success than Jobe (Graham Moss the exception). Tom Fitzmaurice was also involved in controversy and decided to leave. But none have had to endure, as a player, the ongoing derision of the mob. Not only did Jobe cop it, with his AOD comments he stood up as captain and drew the fire to him. Anzac analogies are dangerous, but if footy had a VC, he deserves it.
