Greatest AFL Players Ever

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Dane Swan

How the hell is Dane Swan not in top ten I mean Gary Ablett is not getting high 30 disposals any more if you have a look he's getting low thirty high twenties and swan is still doing what he does best he's a brown low winner I mean come on nick maxwell isn't as good he should be in the fifty mark. Swan has skill, amazing at getting the clearances 30 or 40 disposals and KICKS GOALS! Give him a break would ya, he easily deserves top 10 a 6 year old could put him top5! You can't get much better then a guy who gets 35 disposals gets at least 5 clearances and kicks a goal or two that's WHAT ABLETT DOES! That's why I give my vote to Swan

Dane Swan is an amazing footballer he can almost close is eyes and get 35 Disposals and doesn't need to think about 30 of them I reckon he could get to the top ten, and also he kicks goals while having 30 or 40 disposals he is very fast and picks the right timing to get the ball, wins clearances and just dominates

Freakish player. Racks up possession like nobody else. Be game player as well, kicks goals regularly and loses the tag.

Dane Swan a great AFL player!

Has stood the test of time. His grey hair while still playing shows it.

Top Dog. Goes hard and never gives up.

44 Sam Mitchell

I think Mitchell's a great player sets up goals in the forward line and can be great in the centre.


He's a Gun

He's amazing. He doesn't have a preferred foot. When lining up for goal, he must be deciding which foot to kick with. He's also great with his clearances.

He plays like a real AFL player, inventive tough and he fights to the end. A true hero in my books

One of the greatest midfielders

Agree that he was a jet footballer of the highest order. Could play every position on the ground and was a constant match winner. Clearly better than most players rated abovehim on this list.

He was ok when he was a player but if he coached he would be the best of all time.

Brownlow, sandover, 80 meter goals after the siren, Spectacular mark, Could turn game with his own efforts. Genius only headed by Cary, Ablett junior, and Dermott Brereton and leigh Mathews as best player ever.

46 Ryan Griffen

You give Ryan 45 a lot of players are better then him!

He is far the best in the Western Bulldogs and defintly is in the top ten players of 2013 he might have a chance to sneak in to getting the brownlow medal this year. He is a Star of the AFL because of his Kicking, marking, tackling and basically every thing You Beauty Ryan Griffin!

47 Nathan Fyfe

Depending on fitness, will likely become one of the all time greats. However, his courage might see him forced into an early retirement. One of the very best current players who we are happy to pay our money to see.

Has changed what a midfielder looks like. He is stronger, taller and more agile than any other afl player. Already is a star, but could be one of the games best ever players.

He should be at least top 25 he has played on a broken leg.

He's been named twice.

48 Albert Collier

Great player no one better

49 Dustin Fletcher

He's been around for 19 years and still plays the game to an excellent level.

He deserves a lot of attention, for starters he plays for Essendon getting tough already and he's like 40

I do not agree with this he should be way in the top ten, best defender ever

Best Essendon back man I've ever seen

50 Mark LeCras

Absolute gun of a footy player and is the greatest set shot to ever live! He is a versatile player that can play anywhere on the ground and should at least be in the top 5

He is not the best player of all time but he shows incredible speed and is a great kick at goal

52 Nick Riewoldt

Hard working and my opinion is that he is either the BEST footy player of all time or the best for saint kilda..

He's been playing for years as the captain and he's still having a go!

Honest, hard working, never give up attitude... Plays for the team every game. Demands the most & the best from himself... And his team mates. A good leader/teacher for the kids.

Dealing with the loss of his sister, he still is one of the best players to ever play AFL

He is champion

Brave and courageous. One of the best North Melbourne players ever who was a true Roo.

Hard and brave, one of the best on field leaders.

Strong and brave with lots of courage

54 Jack Regan
55 Jack Dyer

He was an allstar footy player he couched and played for richmond

It is because the footy show logo is him

56 Ian Stewart

Very few here would be able to assess Hadyn Bunton. Stewart was a sensational player and nobody really knew whether he was a left or right footer. Huge mark for his size and great vision. No way does he deserve to be as low as 56 in the rating.

Probably the player with the purest football skills except for Hayden Bunton

One of the purest footballers to play the game

2 brown lows a premiership one of the grates

57 Brent Harvey

His a fast guy who can out run other players and doesn't take free shots instead he plays on

He is the smallest player in afl!

He is a legend for North and the games record holder.

What a legend

Matthew scarlett is so good at being a defender. he could probably do it with his eyes closed!

Great artist to the club with lots of goals

Very smart defender with loads of talent.

David is the best player in the AFL season he knows how to mark and kick goals

Great player, plays back and forward. He's so calm on the field and always seems to know what to do. - THEMASTER
