Greatest AFL Players Ever

The Contenders: Page 6XW

101Shane Tuck

Arguably the greatest midfielder of the all time - certainly his generation. Can push forward and kick multiple goals with several defenders hanging off him while also possessing the football nous to go back and take crucial, game saving marks. Single-handedly brought Richmond back from the brink of folding with his heart and soul.

The man can play, an absolute superstar of the game. His legacy will continue to wow the younger generations

102Maurice Rioli

Maurice Rioli spent a lot of time dominating the WAFL, so the awareness of his greatness is perhaps not as great in states other than WA.

103Keith Greig

That is terrible he should be higher than Fyfe and buddy and Modra

104Tim Watson

I think he was better than his son and son would make top ten easy. top five for him

Tim Watson was briliant wouldn't say better than his son little different in playing style maybe a little tougher
Most disappointing that one season was favourite to grab the brownlow but could only manage one single vote at the count... played for the wrong team...

107Barry Cable

If Polly Farmer was the father of handball, Cable was the prodigal son. Great vision and hands, how many times did he win the the world of sport handball comp. instrumental in Norths first premierships.

Pure genius. A ball magnet and inspiration to anyone that saw him play. Should be in top 20

I have seen Darren played brilliant, he was very good ball getter better than everyone how St Kildare won premiership, he was captain. Yet I am not Saint supporter.

109Dermott Brereton

Dirty player that loved himself, David Rhys Jones ran rings around Brereton in many games and he's not even mentioned in the list...

Probably in top 5 players of all time. Tough as nails, arrogant, dangerous and another who could win the game off his own boot. Certainly up there with Cary, Blight, and Ablett snr as best ever.

Freakish talent that not many AFL players have. Such a star and has still got so long to go. One of my favourite players.

111Robbie Gray

Has always had rare and freakish talent. Since his injury however he has become a better all round player and is now one of the best and most consistent in the AFL.

I think he should be at least in the top 50
