As a passionate North Melbourne supporter and footy fan, I love a bit of analysis! Also love my soccer.

Thanks! Gray is certainly a top 10-15 player at his best, but had too many quiet games this season.

I tried to get a good range of positions in, which meant some mids who missed games had to be left out.

“Though a tackling machine, Cripps struggles defensively when the ball leaves the stoppage, without having the speed to chase”.

There is no doubt Cripps is very good defensively when the ball is at the stoppage, but when it leaves the stoppage he really struggles. The other mids in the top 10 have the pace to run down opponents with the ball.

Thanks for the support! Hopefully Melbourne will follow suit soon enough!

New to AFL? Why you should support North Melbourne

My theory is that on-field stuff changes dramatically from decade to decade. For example, Hawthorn have been the best side to support over the last decade, and in the 1990s, but in the 2030s they could be bottom. Who knows.

However, no team can ever get the credit that North has off-field, simply because they were the trailblazers in these areas. For a supporter new to AFL, potentially unaware of the very best players or game styles, off-field stuff can be a distinguishing factor.
