Top 10 Most Overrated AFL Players

The Top Ten

1 Dale Thomas

Dale Thomas Is So Overrated Everyone Thinks His A Champion, HIS ok but his not a champion.

Yeah, everyone at school says that he is the best player, he is not even that good.

He is so bloody bad at footy he kicks goals by flukes

Got to agree because he (was) a magpie dirty club :(

2 Cyril Rioli

If commentators didn't rave about his one cheap goal he would be another player, god knows how he is number 9

The umpires clearly have white guilt when cyril has the ball.

Most overrated player in AFL/VFL History.

Not even that good bruzz

3 Lance "Buddy" Franklin

Has annoying periods of playing really badly, and just before everyone starts thinking of skinning him, he starts playing good footy. Glad to see him go, as a hawthorn supporter.

Yeah he pops up and takes a good mark every now and again, but for all the hype, he did have figures of 3.4 at the end of the 2012 Grand Final, which Hawthorn lost.

He will never kick 100 goals in a season again - can't KICK WITH HIS RIGHT FOOT

Has tiny spurts of brilliance, but overall lazy and a pretty poor mark

4 Luke Hodge

Absolute FLOG. One of the most hated players in the AFL and gets boo'd every game he plays.
Why? Well try being the captain of the most hated club, getting caught drink driving right after his assistant coach's son was killed by a drink driver, being suspended dozens of times, taking cheapshots at players heads all the time, trying to kill chad wingard while on the field, getting protected by umpires all the time, and getting useless kicks at full back that don't impact the game at all. His consequence of these is being hailed by Channel 7 and Fox Footy as the 'most courageous and best captain they've ever seen'.

Him along with Cereal Ravioli are the 2 most overrated players of all time.

Easily the most overrated player in the game today.
Cheap disposals in junk time and cheap shots on smaller opponents with their heads over the ball.
Worst captain in the game. Also, fights like a girl. Wouldn't go near a similar sized opponent and couldn't fight his way out of a paper bag.
Luke Hodge you are a flog.

Dirtiest and cheapest player running around in the game today, even dirtier than Adam Goodes, that's not a racial slur, that's a human being slur.

Dirtiest player ever always plays dirty when things don't go his way. Can't see how anyone can rate this guy.

5 Gary Ablett Jr. Gary Ablett Jr. is a professional Australian rules footballer playing for the Geelong Football Club in the Australian Football League. The eldest son of Australian Football Hall of Fame member and former Geelong player Gary Ablett Sr., Ablett was drafted to Geelong under the father-son rule in the 2001 more.

Garry is over rated!

Yes he actually looks like a thumb

He was good he's not anymore

I can't believe I had to add this guy to the list, I mean he is so overrated. And you thing Dale Thomas is overrated but get a load of thig guy.

6 Adam Goodes

Goodes is a flog

7 Josh Fraser

Worst player ever can't find the bloody footy, gets cheap kicks and

8 Craig Bolton
9 Daniel Wells

Shame he has showed climpses of brilliance but never really got it together

10 Chris Tarrant

The Contenders

11 Barry Hall

I'm a huge Sydney Swan supporter, but Barry Hall leaving was the best thing that ever happened to the team

All he does is punch people

he can't kick well, run and he gives away penalties, I mean come on!

12 Richard Tambling

Wow what a flogger


13 Travis Cloke

Can't kick, likes to whinge to umpires all the time. Never kicks goals in big matches and is lucky to kick 30 to 40 goals as a key forward... Absolute joke.

Collingwood needs to cut its' losses and get rid of Cloke, Buckley and Maguire

He, Buckley & Eddie have ruined Collingwood


14 Andrew Carrazzo

Plenty of easy possessions in the back line

15 Dane Swan

He cannot even tackle and is the biggest seagull in the game. All he is good at is running with ball and getting easy possesions.

Gets cheap 1 2 handballs in the backline and his majority of his possessions have no impact on the scoreboard or help his team in any way.

16 Chad Wingard

Amazing amount of hype. Front running player he gets goals and goal assists when the team plays well. Not good enough to play as a midfielder, fitness and strength inadequate.


17 Tom Boyd
18 James Hird

Overrated player, arrogant and self-centered.
Has all but destroyed Essendon.

PR machines tend to talk up big club players... but Hird good, but not as great as many think.

19 Josh Kennedy
20 Chris Judd

Used to be a great player but an aged dudd ATM and relying on his dirty tactics.

21 Bryce Gibbs

Will not go hard at the footy and is always looking for easy possessions.

22 Nick Maxwell

Clearly not over rated because nobody rates him!

23 Matt Priddis

Such a flog gets easy touches from nic Nat

Should never have won brownlow, biggest hack

24 Zac Dawson

Easily the worst player of all time

Average & stupid

Wanna root sooo hard
