Just wondering if you had to pick two players, the most under rated and most over rated player in the comp, who would you choose?

Under: Lyons
Honourable mention: Jamie Cripps

Over: Mr. Dustin '2020 Brownlow' Martin
Like the Lyons selection.

A few others from either this season or the past couple-
T Lynch (Adel), M Duncan and N Haynes

Probably not so much this season based on performance , but definitely over the last few seasons

Under: Robbie Gray

Mentioned it many times before but his work as a mid in traffic is as good as any going around including Danger & Fyfe

Over: JDG

Judge someone on what he does do , not on what he might do

Andrews & Haynes are definitely two others that the Victorian media took ages to recognise how good they were , probably going gah gah over Rance all the time.

Speaking of which Astbury & Grimes are/were probably very under rated outside of the Richmond circle.

Lynch is interesting because it was he that Clarko and the Geelong Scott first started to tag all those seasons ago , Lynch , Smith & Laird.

Not known as The Connector for nothing.

Good call

Toss up between Bontempelli and Darcy Moore for overrated.

Can’t split Hopper and Shepherd for under.

Under: Brad Sheppard - Hands down one of the best if not the best medium defender in the league. Never gets any credit over East. Should be a multiple All-Australian by now yet somehow still to get a nod. Takes the most dangerous mid sized forward each week and rarely gets beaten. Think your Toby Greene's, Heeney, De Goey, Wingard, Charlie Cameron's. Shutting those guys down each week goes a long way to the Eagles success.

Honourable mention: Mitch Duncan - Playing in the shawdow of Danger, Ablett & Selwood... Duncan goes way under the radar. Very dependable, rarely plays a bad game and important to the way Geelong play.

Over: Dustin Martin - Easy decision here. The way the media carry on about this bloke is sickening, lol

Overs: Bontempelli with daylight second from a disgruntled SC owner.
Unders: Would have said Brayden Maynard at beginning of year however he is getting some recognition now.
