Interesting Chester .
I want to substantiate the often heard opinion that we have a top 4 quality list.
I am most interested in your extrapolations for these players, because the official ratings for these players is totally wrong.
Heppell 23 477
Bellcham 14 428
Hurley 21 398
Hooker 20 351
Where does that put them in a more realistic assessment of their overall ranking: ?
Heppell 34th in the AFL, just above Nathan Jones
Bellcham 70th in the AFL around Joey.
Hurley 73rd in the AFL close to BJ
Hooker 160th inn the AFL around Josh Caddy
I feel TBell rating extrapolation is wrong, but I can believe Hurley, and Hepp is probably not around 34th, but he did finish 3rd in the Crichton, so maybe he is not far off that.
In any case, it seems like we can justifiably claim to have 7-8 players in the top 100 of the AFL which is above average and would support the contention our top end talent is good enough to get us to top 4.
Next question. How many times will Essington take the field in 2018 ?
