Nice post. This should keep us going through summer. Need to find a spot for Shane Woewodin,  2000 Brownlow medallist.

I'll take Sean Wight instead of Hughes, Wilson for Grinter,  Woewodin for Healey and the way things are going, Oliver for Robertson - the latter two because there is already enough fire power to sink any defence in the history of the AFL. Leg speed and ball movement makes me lean towards Woe and Olllie.

It's a good team.

I'd want Tingay, Jeff White and Shaun White in there.

I agree Stinga and Jeff White need to be in the team. Otherwise its looks pretty good.

Good effort, although Grinter wouldn't make my second side let alone the first.

I'd concur, he came good at Carlton - I'd love Stinga, and he got too injured too frequently to really be consistent unfortunately, (does anyone else remember the time in WA where he side stepped to eagles players (one ready to shirt front) and they collected one another...could have been the same game as a chris lewis bite...but hey I'm sure its not and I'm throwing all my WA memories into one basket...

About 3 of them would have made the best team prior to that.

JohnsonT, Johnson R, Adams, Barassi, Williams, Mithen, Lord, Roet, Bourke, Dixon, Townsend, Ridley, Case, Tunbridge, Groom.

Probably missed a few.

Laurie Fowler (3 Blueys) in for Yeats, and Sean Wight in for Hughes. Tingay ahead of all those listed on interchange and emergencies. And Garry Baker on the bench as 2nd ruckman.

Good team Big Carl just a couple of changes to the 22 in bold. I loved Connolly when I was a kid before he was cut down by injury

I think Clayton Oliver is better than Greg Healy should be in that team along with Michael Hibberd who is much better than Graeme Yeats

Agree Red and Blue.

Big oversight!

Big fan of Tingay, Sean Wight and Jeff White.

What about Diamond Jim.   The Great John Tilbrook. I think  his salary in the 70s was more than Clarry and Sugar put together.

Do you know what l mean?
