  1. Mottsy, How did Buddy not make your list? You said over-rated right… I didn’t rate half the guys on your list in the first place 🙂

    1. Hard to include a guy that’s averaging almost a ton.

      Daniel Wells would’ve been a walk-up start otherwise.

      1. My Bad Motts, I was just thinking overrated player, not just overrated SC player… in which case I put the name J Ziebell forward… not that I have him or want him.

        1. Agree with you Big Sexy. There’s a number in this list that i don’t rate (McPhee, Tambling, Tomahawk), a number past there prime (Aker, BBBBBBBBBBBH, Goodwin) and Watts has only played a fistful of games. I like the concept but i disagree with some of the names.

          Overrated:
          Lindsay Thomas and Matthew Campbell
          Travis Johnstone
          Josh Fraser

  2. Robbie Warnock!!!!

    He is supposed to be making me money, yet, bloody Caaaarlton wont pick him. C’mon Rats, get him in team.

    1. I’ll have a chat to him about that this week if you like, HGL. Its going to be hard to change his mind thought – big Sauce played pretty well the other night.

  3. This list is pathetic. Most of the players are not really rated that highly by anyone, so how can they be considered “overrated”? I mean, nobody in their right mind thinks Tambling, Tomahawk or Tippett are any good. They may each have some form of ‘promise’, but rated, letalone overrated, I think not.

    1. Thanks for the feedback Nathan. I would argue that every one of these players is highly regarded within their club and amongst their own club supporters. The funny thing about a poll is that it simply asks for an opinion. Do you believe that one of the above players is over rated? If so click a box and vote. Nobody is saying they are the cream of the crop but instead they all may be taking someone else’s place in the side.

      That being said can you point me to your website where I can take a vote on your improved list of over rated players?

      1. i believe tippett is rated pretty highly. he’s was a gc17 target, for example.

        i don’t believe hawkins is overrated though (geelong supporter here). he’s certainly given a greater opportunity than his record has earned him, but i don’t think anyone rates him as a great player yet. more a work in progress.

        1. The tomahawk will get there and be a bloody good footballer imo. Reckon he’ll learn plenty off jPOD too.

  4. Anyone want to throw a thought or two on which of these two i should bring into my side this week: jPod or Waite?

  5. Can’t believe you put a bloke in the list who was the youngest in his draft and has played only 3 games. How can he be overrated before he is even rated. Disappointed in you Mottsy. You’re footy intellect is respected however questions must be asked here. You use that theory then lets throw in Scully, Trengove, Bastinac, Martin, Cunnington, Melksham…………………..

    1. Ease up SS –
      firstly I think Shiels was the youngest in that draft and Watts was No.1 which obviously attracts max. scrutiny.
      Difference between him and others you’ve mentioned is that they are all widely rated as done something (even in small doses) to justify top 10 status. Watts by his own club’s (and GrryLyon’s) overt acknowledgement has got above himself which has directly affected his on field outcomes.
      In context I think he’s a great candidate as long as we all put aside our man-loving attributes.

      1. Understand your point Deano. Cheers. Had my Demons hat on there. Just sick of the Watts bashers but i understand where you are coming from.

        1. Not bashing, SS, just simply providing him as an option in a poll. Personally I didn’t even vote for him, but the fact he’s garnered so many votes justifies his inclusion.
