The battle !!

The best midfield ?

Carlton with Ratten, Camporale, Beaumont, etc.
Essendon with Misiti, Hird, Mercuri, Johnsons etc.

And why ?

PS: Tigertuff, have you open the moderating subject with Jan ? Because I was waiting all day for you to be active so I can send you a PM. I was gonna make this a poll, so please hurry up.

The Battle of the midfields

Essendon, Carlton, Brisbane, no offence to any other supporters but we aint got sh!t on these powerful sides unless maybe Port power but they need more than half a season to convince me

I picked Brisbane:

Carltons key running brigade(i almost picked them)---- Ratten, Camporeale, McKay, Bradley, Hulme, Kouta, Christou, Beaumont

Essendons key running brigade---- J. Johnson, M. Johnson, Caracella, Misiti, Hird, Barnard, Ramanauskas, Blumfield, Hardwick, Solomon, Rioli.....clearly more options than Carlton, but without seeming idiotic I would take the carlton trio of Ratten, Camporeale, Kouta over whatever essendon can dish out.

Brisbane------Voss, Black, Lappin, Notting, Power, Hart, Ashcroft, Johnson, Akermanis....

Carlton have 3 of the best, Essendon you could throw a blanket over 8 or 9, Brisbane similar to Essendon but Voss is a standout.......really hard to pick

Kouta, Ratten, Campo, Hulme and Bradley are just to good. not to mention Fletcher, Freeborn etc....on the wings...the midfield of the blues are very good. Just imagine if we kept Murphy....it would be all over red rover!!!!!!!

There you hate it, our biggest weapon is how our midfield is underrated.
Misiti would get 30+ possesions if he were to play with carlton as Carlton have a possesion short kicking game.

Campo has very good vision, Lucas, Hirdy, Merc's, Rioli and Long are just as good.

Kouta and Hird are equal. Beaumont and Peverill are arguably the best taggers in the game thinking about their age.

McKay and Hardwick are equal though McKa has an extra run here and there.

Bradley aint better than Caracella and Blumfield

But Brisbane are the very deep, good midfield.

Voss, Black, Lappin, Notting, Power, Hart, Ashcroft, Johnson, Akermanis....

J. Johnson, M. Johnson, Caracella, Misiti, Hird, Barnard, Ramanauskas, Blumfield, Hardwick, Solomon, Rioli, Peverill, Wellman, McVeigh.................

Rating (Out of 10)
Essendon 10 !!
Brisbane 9.5
Carlton 9

3 phenomenal Midfields.

I looked in this thread thinking what a bunch of idiots you people are? You consider Carlton and Essendon's midfield the bets in the league...

Then I realised this was from 2001...

Yeah

What a blast from the past

I was so gonna write a post breathing fire until I hit on the date

"They picked on the wrong man - and the wrong country. It was like pouring petrol onto a fire as far as I was concerned.

There's an old saying that the dog that barks loudest never bites. They did a lot of barking but we bit them pretty hard. Uruguay's attitude just showed how scared they were of us - it was their last resort."
