Not specifically
151 was best case
All we know is Kane doesnít rate him top 150

Poor old Timmy could be far lower that 151

Chuckster, that is the entire reason he does it. Itís his proof point that his style of media works.
I smile most of the time at what he writes about us and others.
Heís the Andrew Bolt of the AFL.
ďI find it nearly impossible to make those judgments, but he is certainly up there with the really important ones, he is certainly up there with the Francis Bourkes and the Royce Harts and the Kevin Bartlett and the Kevin Sheedys, there is no doubt about that,Ē Balme said.

7. CLANGER KING

Tim Taranto was instrumental in Richmondís win, with three goals to go with his 23 disposals. Unfortunately, his KFC SuperCoach score fell well short of where it could have been, with Taranto paying the price for a career-high 13 clangers. He leads the AFL in this stat for the season with 101, 15 more than Tim Kelly (86), with Stephen Coniglio and Christian Petracca next on 83. Taranto hit the target with five of his 14 kicks against Hawthorn for a kicking efficiency of 35.7 per cent, the fourth-worst on the field (ahead of Josh Weddle, Trent Cotchin and Jai Newcombe). Taranto lost a total of 38.8 points from negative acts, made up of clanger disposals, free kicks against and no-pressure errors. He remains the No.1 scoring forward in KFC SuperCoach this year with an average of 113.1, but his five-round average of 98.4 ranks ninth behind players including Sam Flanders (110.6), Charlie Curnow (109.4), Dustin Martin (110.4) and Ben Keays (99.4).

That is a hell of a lot of clangers in one game. Made up for it and then some with those 3 clutch goals.

Still something to work on and improve on for TT next season. I donít put too much weight on it given itís usually the inside mids who are winning the clearances in tight and getting it fwd under pressure. But +15 more then the next highest is a decent gap.

I think the early season clangers was when our midfield mix wasnít right and he was disposing under a lot of pressure off balance etc. hawthorn was a bad kicking game all round but I feel like on this side of the bye his kicking has improved a lot with cotchin and Martin going through there

TIM TARANTO (RICHMOND) - A

Taranto has delivered on everything Richmond knew he would - huge leadership, phenomenal gut running, relentless accumulator, the ability to get forward and kick goals.

And kicking efficiency that has hovered around between 45-60 per cent across his entire career.

So for the price of picks 12 and 19 he has been everything they hoped for, kicking a superb 18 goals.

He will never be a great kick but against Melbourne only four of his 12 kicks were effective so he has a clear RFI (room for improvement) given he is only 25 years of age.

His field kicking is average at best and he does have the habit of kicking forward blindly.
However, he's had a great year and were lucky to have him.

Most of his kicks are under huge pressure in contested battles . But at least he kicks pretty damn straight for goal

In 2016, Dimma and the coaches conceded that Shane edwards was always handballing to good spots but teammates werenít reacting fast enough

By no means does Taranto kick laser beams but his rushed kicks into f50, I feel half the time itís actually not a bad kick but our forward set up is woeful and our forward line arenít ready for the entry.

My intuition tells me if we had lynch eventually they would have gelled and he would have absolutely relished the dump kicks
