Maybe a misprint by The Age?

Well he’s admitted his mistake, I guess that’s better than some of his colleagues. But really, c’mon mate. Proof read your story and get a second pair of eyes over it.

Proof reading doesn’t exist anymore mate. 

Cut backs so the management and share holders get their dividends

15.28

Maybe he’s telling porkies, there’s a clear 3 under the 2 next to Grundy.

Nic Nat was clearly a 2 before a 3.

Max now has a weekly column for the competition to the Fairfax rag?  That may explain his omission. His 2016 form from a limited sample from afar at the 'G'  v woods and tigers Anzac Eve in succeeding  weeks. Gawn absolutely monstered the opposing rucks and dominated the midfieldbattle like a colossus. Best individual ruck performance I can recall from an AFL ruckman. May his star status be re-ascendant 2018.

Moments before submitting the article. “Sorta feels like the article is missing something...hmmm...nope there’s Kreuzer, it’s not him. There’s Grundy and Martin as well. Hang on a minute...what is 382 divided by 25?”

What a load of dribble.

Now that Maxys beard is at full length again he is back to full power and one of the best going around. 

Just watch the norf game and fast fwd the bits where the umps st3ewed him over.

Ben has assured me that his next article, 'AFL's best forwards' will not name Buddy Franklin in any capacity. It will be followed by 'Best Stadiums' in which Blundstone Arena gets the top gong ahead of Carrara Stadium.

The article on the Age website has been amended to say ...

"By my reckoning, there are currently nine A-grade ruckmen in the competition – Paddy Ryder (reigning All-Australian), Brodie Grundy (coming quickly), Nic Naitanui, Stefan Martin, Aaron Sandilands, Sam Jacobs, Matthew Kreuzer, Max Gawn and Ben McEvoy. "

Ha ha, so Max Gawn not in the top 8 ruckmen in AFL. Now you have got that published why not move onto other sports and see what other insights you can share.

Re-read the article.  Its not overly analytical  and doesnt' rate the ruckmen.  Discusses a few but very superficially and lists the best 9

Which includes Max.

 

Year 10 English Comprehension needed for this post. IMO

Made me laugh, bit like Chris Judd claiming Kreuzer is the third best ruckman in the league...

 

 

Kreuzer is the 3rd best ruckman in the league. He was the dominant ruckman of 2017. He has two bad games due to injury and limited prep and all the sudden Judd is out of line for calling him a top 3 ruck man. Matthew Kreuzer is no joke as a ruckman.

The author edited his original article after it was brought to his attention that Gawn was left out.

Don’t consider Kreuzer to be a joke, but I would not have him in the top 7
