2 James Hird (Essendon)

The best player to ever play the game with out a doubt

The greatest of all time

He's a good player

3 Chris Judd (West Coast/Carlton)

Runs and plays the ball perfect

Greatest player ever.

At West Coast easily better than Gaz or Hird. Dropped a bit at carlton but still up there

4 Michael Voss (Brisbane)

Clearly voss has to be top 5

5 Matthew Lloyd (Essendon)
6 Nathan Buckley (Brisbane/Collingwood)
7 Dane Swan (Collingwood)

Shouldn't be this high up


8 Adam Goodes (Sydney)
9 Simon Black (Brisbane)
10 Robert Havey (St. Kilda)

Robert Harvey is the best player in the history of players

The Contenders

11 Matthew Richardson (Richmond)

You're the best player in the world

You are the best matthew I am a fan
Of richmond from cy evans

12 Mark Ricciuto (Adelaide)
13 Gavin Wanganeen (Port Adelaide/Essendon)
14 Scott Pendlebury (Collingwood) Scott Pendlebury (Collingwood) Scott Pendlebury is a professional Australian rules football player and current captain of the Collingwood Football Club in the Australian Football League.
15 Nick Riewoldt (St. Kilda)

Yep bloody good. Changed the way key forwards play the game!

16 Cyril Rioli (Hawthorn)

He has a very skilful way of manipulating play. Some of his goals seem so flukey!

The most skill full player ever


17 Brent Harvey

He runs and runs and runs and deserves a brownlow

18 Josh P. Kennedy (Sydney)

Very underrated played the best contested ball winner the games ever seen

te best

19 Ben Cousins

Won a brownlow while high, when I am high I can't even spell brownlow. Fair dinkum

20 Luke Hodge (Hawthorn)

Easily top 10. I'm not a Hawthorn fan by any stretch but Hodge is top flight.

Should be top 15 pushing top ten

Wow! How is he not on this list what a joke! Him a roughhead are an amazing duo only getting better with she and I support west coast

21 Brad Johnson (Western Bulldogs)
22 Gary Moorcroft (Essendon)
23 Matthew Pavlich (Fremantle)

This bloke has better career averages than Wayne Carey and is a 6 time best & fairest, 6 time All-Australian. He is one of the most diverse AFL players ever seen. He is the only All-Australian Full Back that has also averaged 2 goals a game throughout his career If he wins an AFL premiership, he can legitimately stake a claim to being right up there with Wayne Carey as a Hall of Famer and may one day reach legend status.

Should be number 1

24 Corey Enright (Geelong)

You're the best because your team is GEELONG!

I hate Geelong there just so stupid

25 Dean Cox (West Coast)
26 Dylan Shiel (Greater Western Sydney)
27 Norm Smith (Fitzroy/Melbourne/South Melbourne)
