Definitely against it being brought in to the AFL...However, I actually think this is a good thing at VFL level. Gives more kids exposure to finals football (pressure). Really the VFL is now a development league for AFL teams so the more players get to show their skills and abilities the better.

The AFL Prospectus used to do this list analysis. It needs to make a comeback.

Ross was picked over him. If a mid was a late out, Graham would have played.

Ross was picked over him because he was fully fit and not a risk

Dimma said he could not risk playing both an 80% fit Martin and Graham who was carrying and had carried a pretty serious injury into a final

I think you’re both right. Ross was picked ahead of him but Graham not being 100% right would have atleast had some bearing on the choice. Butttttt if Dimma couldn’t risk playing both dusty and graham then graham wouldn’t have even been named an emergency. I  bet he would have been next man should someone have pulled out late. In saying that I also think that if graham was in any sort of form he would have picked him regardless but the combination of not being 100% + being in poor/avg form previously meant he didn’t make the cut.

Personally I would pick graham ahead of Ross if both 100% fit. Neither are in my 22 though.

I’d have Graham in my team.

Graham is ahead of Ross by a country mile.
Must be why Ross was picked over him in the final last year...played well too  ;D

Neither of them are in the best 22, both are in the best 25

Ross was fit

Graham was carrying an injury. You know the injury that required surgery that he is still recovering from. Might have something to do with why he didn't play the final

I’ve got no problem with Graham
More the overstating of his position

I would suggest he’s right on the fringe of best 22 and would be best 22 in nearly every other team

Good player who will play a lot of games this year

Richmond Rant / Re: What is Richmond's pass mark for 2023?
« Last post by Fluffy Tiger on Yesterday at 09:06:57 PM »
for me its a flag or bust with the path we have taken.

Agree

Flags are tough. If we get to place where we give it a fair shot then that would be a pass. Top 4 is a pass for me. Flag would be amazing  but is above a "Pass" mark
