I chose my best slightly different. I chose the player we’d be more afraid to break open a game (I excluded spuds like Taberner). If we couldn’t shut the player down or minimise their game, we were totally screwed.
I also only chose players since I’ve been watching (around 1988). Too tough to assess guys on highlight packages from the 70s.

Adelaide- Dangerfield
Brisbane- Voss
Carlton- Kernahan
Collingwood- Pendelbury
Essendon- Hird
Fremantle- Pavlich
Geelong- Gary Ablett snr
Gold Coast- Gary Ablett Jnr
GWS- Kelly
Hawthorn- Lance Franklin
Melbourne- Stynes
North- Wayne Carey
Port- Tredrea
Richmond- Dustin Martin
Stkilda- Tony Lockett
Sydney- Goodes
Western bulldogs- Chris Grant
West Coast - Chris Judd

I found it tough assessing Adelaide, Carlton, Collingwood, GWS, Melbourne and Port. They have great players but I think their most dominant teams were more of a ‘sum of all parts’ team than having a dominant player.

I’m normally too blind to notice who plays well live

but no amount of alcohol can let you forget how many times Dane Swan farked us on Anzac day, so I’ll go him for the pies

Yep, in terms of consistently pulling our pants down. No one comes close to Swan in the last twenty years. Every game he destroyed us and we never had an answer.

Weeeell, we did call him fat…

…are we excluding Pendlebury for a good reason, or just ‘cos…?

3 ANZAC medals & 21 BL votes (against us) to Swan’s 2 & 17.

I rate pendulbury over swan.

My comment was replying to wob.

But Pendlebury has killed us more often.
