  1. If you take Williams, Buckley and Lockett, I donโ€™t see how you can be stopped โ€“ Williams is the best clearance player in the group, he gets it to Buckley whoโ€™s the best kick in the group and he puts it on the chest of Lockett, who was basically unstoppable with good delivery.

    If you had those three together in their primes, you could have had a team of nobodies around them and theyโ€™d still have won a lot of games.

    Kouta/Hird/Ablett would be the most entertaining trio to watch though.

  2. Carey, Voss, Silvagni.

    Most of the midfielders cancel each other out and I’d go with Voss for his leadership, hardness and courage. Carey and Silvagni to cover the whole ground as the three of them together would bolster any team right across the board.

  3. I’m not quite old enough to remember Williams at his best, so I’d probably go Voss because he was the hardest of hard nuts and a great leader, Ablett for the freakish things he could do at any spot on the footy field, and Plugger because he guaranteed you at least 5 goals a game and I don’t expect to see anyone do that in the future.

  4. Hird,Ablett,Voss
    Hird Brownlow medalist 5x All Australian 5x best and fairest Norm smith medalist 2 premierships 2000 premiership captain and 3 Anzac day medals to cap it off . Yes it’s true I had a man crush on Hirdy lol but he was amazing to watch could win a game off his own boot.
    Ablett just use to sit back and go WOW how did he do that I remember him going for a speccy didn’t take it the ball fell in his lap had his back facing goal side flat on his arse kicks over his head about 35 out GOAL!!!!!!
    Voss I would watch the Lions play just to watch Vossy his leadership his courage Was just phenomenal I was thrilled he won the Brownlow with Hirdy he deserved to win One. I also think a player that’s not on that list but deserves a mention is Paul Kelly also a Brownlow medalist and in my opinion one of the most courageous players to play the game.

  5. Carey – best player in the last 25 years, maybe ever. But them I am a North member.
    Ablett – best player in the last 25 years, maybe ever if I put aside my bias to Carey
    Voss – the bloke was a warrior who not only was a gun but made the players around him better players

  6. Of those 3. Williams. Carey. Lockett.

    of any 3? Maybe Carey. Maybe Williams. But if i did Carey would be about F4 and Williams about M6.

  7. All great players but my favourite player was Lockett, would of kicked a lot more in a good side. Carey and Silvagni.

  8. Where’s Chris Grant? At 17 he kicked 51 goals in his first season, the youngest player in VFL-AFL history to achieve this feat. Injury hampered his career. One of the most underrated VFL/AFL players of all-time.

  9. Ablett is remembered for his freakish occurences more than his usual performances.

    Sure he averaged 5 goals after being shifted from the wing, but that’s in an era when rules favoured forwards and a Dunstall and Lockett (among others) also starred and averaged similar goals per match. Lockett in an inferior side. Sheesh. So too was Fraser Gerig a multiple Coleman winner. ..

    The average coleman medal winner gets about half the goals now, so SC scoring would be way different.

    He wasn’t playing in a weak team either (hawthorn or geelong) despite the lack of gf’s.

    So. Rating him above a buddy? Lineball at best.

    And who would pick buddy in a greatest ever side, let alone for SC 2015?

  10. Diesel out of the guts to Carey at CHF turns his opponent inside out & hits Lockettttttt on the chest lace out!

    Best in & under I’ve ever seen to the best CHF that graced my eyes & Theres only one Tony Lockett ( best set shot from outside 50 I’ve ever seen )

  11. Hird- Carey- plugger

    Would’ve loved to have had the option to pick Robert Harvey, but maybe that’s my saints bias

    Hird was a star- brave, skilful and could turn a game off his own boot
    Carey was the perfect CHF and became almost like he was a one man team despite the quality in his team mates

    Plugger was, well, he was plugger. I remember watching him kick 12 or so one day at Moorabbin. It felt like every time it went near him he’d kick a goal. Won a Brownlow at FF in a poor team. I loved him, even when he went to Sydney.

  13. Lockett, because he was virtually unstoppable. Silvagni, because he could stop everybody other than Lockett (so makes sense to have them in same team) and Williams because he would not only get 40 possessions, but would kill you with every one of them.
