Triple Brownlow medallist, number 1 in the all time Essendon list
His ability to take Intercept marks in 4 week patches is amazingV 1 Comment
He had extremely great skills and was fast. He is considered the greatest wingman ever. He could run then balk then run and kick a perfect 50 metre kick to a leading forward. He also could play half back flank.
Amazing this guy is 121. Brent Crosswell said that if you could beat Flower you could then retire. Wayne Schimmelbusch said he had to prepare the hardest to play against Flower as opposed to any other player. A best and fairest a captain and also captain of Victoria.
I agree 100% an under rated great. If he had been in the media or even an extrovert we would have him as a true great! He controlled CHF and ruck. All the stats will point to a true great.
His stats will stack up against the best, games, goals, brownlow votes, finals, premierships, marks, and to this day he remains underrated.
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 generationsV 1 Comment
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.
That is terrible he should be higher than Fyfe and buddy and Modra
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...
Greatest Carlton Captain. Tall and strong forward who won many games for the Blues.
Greatest captain ever. Given everything to football and Carlton
Stood up and won more games off his actions
Han another player from his era
A great giant as he does anything. He should be named in a higher position. Go willV 1 Comment
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 20V 1 Comment
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.V 1 Comment
One of the greatest centre half backs of all time.
Was lucky to be. Claremont supporter in the late 70's and 80's. Hunters marks on the hard Claremont track were more spectacular and repetitive than anything I have seen since - including G Ablett Snr.V 1 Comment
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.V 2 Comments
