    What!!! No Jude Bolton????


    I'm going with McVeigh ... just to piss me off.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.

    Definitely some misleading stats with Jude there.

    Of those listed, I'd be pretty confident that Kirk would drill it. His kicking looks unattractive, but generally speaking he finds the mark and he is a pretty reliable set shot.

    As long as he's within 30m!

    Tony Lockett!

    Well he's just as relevant to a future grand final as Ball Up Benny is!

    No crap. Even though I've gone the Cheese with the question asked, if it was 40 metres or less out, and less than a 45 degree angle, I really would pick Mathews.

    I can't remember ever seeing him miss one of those 'a professional footballer should really kick this' shots. Whereas I've seen MOL, BBBH, ROK, McVeigh, Davis et al miss plenty. I might have seen Benny nail about 10 of 'em. Being generous. Even though 44.23 as career stats is decent but not outstanding kicking, I reckon a pretty high proportion of those 23 points would've been from field play.

    McVeigh in terms of kicking action is potentially as good as Cheese. Just needs to get his head right. Davis kicks the ball too high and so unnecessarily reduces his margin of error, esp if there's a zephyr of breeze up in the gods. BBBH could be the best, but isn't. Just one of those mysteries that only the boxer's psychologist could answer.

    Kirk will generally put the ball in the right spot when doing 30 metre field kicks, but he strains for distance too much (because he naturally has none) on the set shot and is liable to skew 'em as a result.

    If I was Jude Bolton I would be severely pissed off at not being on that list. But then again I'm not Jude Bolton because I can kick further and more accurately than him.
