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.

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

3. Patrick Dangerfield

4. Patrick Cripps

5. Lance Franklin

6. Max Gawn

7. Josh Kennedy (WCE)

8. Brodie Grundy

9. Josh Kelly

10. Clayton Oliver

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.  

Most overrated footballer in my lifetime.

I wanted to disagree with you, but I have got nothing.

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 !)

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
