There are definitely not better or more talented footballers playing right now than Dustin Martin. He’s an unbelievable footballer, certainly top 5 of all time and by the end of his career might be comfortably number 1.

It's too hard declare a GOAT in AFL. There are too many players on the field, too many different positions, and the game has changed significantly over the years.

Lance Franklin could finish his career with more than 1000 goals and in the top 5 all-time for goals kicked. This was done while playing in an era where key forwards just don't kick bags any more. He was an absolute freak in his prime. He's one of very players I've seen that you simply can't stop when they are "on".

Yep. Forced into early retirement, could have played until he was 45. Also played 90 games before coming to the VFL.

Played top leve first classl state cricket during the footy offseason just for fun.

Who would win in a fight? Taylor Swift or Daryl Somers?

I agree it’s harder to tell with AFL it’s not like basketball or like cricket where you can have less people on the court or nice beat statistics with only a certain amount of things going on at any given time.


That said I love how people will simultaneously say Richmond are a terrible side without dusty but also that dusty is overrated and not that good but dont reconcile that with Richmond dominated the last few years.

On that note it's kind of telling that Richmond recovered easily after losing Rance. Martin would be a much greater loss.

Rance had the same issue. “Rance is the most overrated defender ever and is bad” “Richmond is nothing without Rance” like both statements can’t really be true together

The man was stunningly well dressed. He had a smart looking jacket, and a really neat looking cape, the lining of which was shimmering and sparkling in more than Oriental splendour, which is a great deal of splendour indeed, just ask Kipling.

Clearly Rance is overrated because Richmond are just fine without him.


Richmond I think are still overrated. They win, but they don’t have this dominant aura about them like Hawthorn, Geelong or Brisbane has in their peaks. They were scary. Richmond just, get the job done. Clearly they’re a very good team and more than anything I’m impressed with the Richmond org as a whole rather than just the team.

I missed that Bowers got her suspension overturned. The current B&F favourite will have been charged in at least 1/3rd of the matches she’s played in for the season assuming she goes clean this week.
