While it's a meaningless list, when was the last time we had five Demon players in a Top 50? 

It's one of his worst lists yet, though.  Joe Daniher got a gig on there for a start.

When was the last time we had 2 in the Top 10?

Also Brayshaw deserves higher.

In fairness he is predicting where they will be at the end of the season.  If you asked me to do it and believed Daniher will stay healthy, then he would be in.

In addition Max was ranked Number 1 by Robbo at the end of 2018.

This is probably the first time ever going back to when Sheahan started doing the top 50.

So Robbo thinks Angus will go from 3rd best player as judged in the 2018 Brownlow to 43rd best as judged by him?  That totally discredits the whole thing!

As you know Luci, Robbo never lets logic get in the way of his drinking  thinking.

everyone knows the brownlow isnt a true representation of player ranking so not sure why you're using it to fit an argument. As good as brayshaw is he didnt even finish top 3 in our Bnf.

I would prefer Robbos view over an umpires view any day of the week.  Surely you’re not taking the Brownlow as your guide to the best players in the comp.

Not at all.  Just pointing that Robbo seems to be at the other extreme.  To put Angus at 43 is bizarre to me.  I would have him around #25.  Just my opinion.

Here are some alternative views:

Note:  'Roar' is a sports website where it's scribes are non-footballers who generally take an objective position - a refreshing read.  Their rankings above are based on a consensus of 3 or 4 of their writers - explains why there are some notable absences.  Roar's Top 10

Difficult to comment as no-one outlines their criteria: Club B&F would be a good start, 2019 upside would be another, AA selection.  However, the views seem fairly consistent.

I can't get behind the paywall so can't see all of Robbo's top 10.

1. Nat Fyfe

2. Dustin Martin

From a Dees perspective it looks about right to me.....The only other player that may be considered in the top 50 would be Harmesy as he probably had more influence on our games last year than Angus & T Mac.

Max, Clayton & Jack have proven over a number of years (or more than 2 anyway) that they are elite. I'm sure if Harmesy & Angus continued there great form this year then they would be elevated up the list.

B & F always a good indicator of a players year.

Not sure how many here have have Gus as the 3rd best Demon, let alone AFL player.

The best thing is we have quality players bobbing up in different situations all over as serious players/talent/contenders in different contexts.

All the Scum have, really, is the hope that Joe the Goose will amount to something, Anything

FWIW I reckon 4 may = more than 7, but more than happy we happy to have both.

Does anyone really believe that Alex Rance is a Top 10 player in the league?  Outside of Robbo, the other Top 10's above have him in there.

Alex Rance is one of the best defenders of all time. Not sure how you can argue against a 5 time all-australian and AA captain. Mind boggling. I'm glad you aren't on the recruiting team.

Not this year at least ( too soon ?).

I think Angus Brayshaw is one of those rare commodities that is more appreciated by their own supporters ( and Roos and umpires) than outside watchers.

I think he is an absolute gem and by seasons end will not be all that far behind Viney in value to our team ( big call, I know !)

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
