'matth' I'm not 'discriminating against Dally Messenger, Joe Busch, Frank Burge, Duncan Hall, Duncan Thomson, Harold Horder, Brian Bevan, Dave Brown etc' all I was saying and comparing the NRL to, are with the players that I've seen play in that era. I did mention 'the list goes on and on'. I'm in my mid 60's so I've seen some of the greats of RL. The previous and rest of the greats, is for time to be the judge. I'm just giving my opinion.
Btw 'Gonzo' the NRL was instituted in 1997 and the inaugural first season was in 1998 not 1980.
'Gonzo' your guidelines (in your first post) was 'It’s a player rating on NRL players' where did this 1980 come from??? Don't change the rules to suit your comments. All I'm saying is that this list 'does not reflect' probably the most evolutionary era in RL that lead to the 4 tackle rule and in 1971 the 6 tackle rule. The players that I've mentioned were evolutionary and revolutionary in producing the NRL and the level of RL we see today. And you don't have to be so abusive as I'm definitely not and don't bring 'my lord' into it, with abusive comment like 'some people are stupid'. 'Gonzo' I've seen more greats and legends of RL, than you ever have and that is my objection to this list.
