    Best jumpers in the AFL: Ranked.

    Bontempelli runs in, lines em' up and kicks a goal...Listen to this. Listen to the fans. This is why we come to the football. Neither side gives or takes and inch and the Bulldogs are back in front. Woof Woof.

    Amazing how a premiership changes perception or rather, changes the perception of those in the business of shaping perception.. the media.
    I have no doubt that minus a premiership there would be absolutely zero chance of a reporter (outside of a Dogs' fan)proffering that our jumper is the best.

    Fair call although I can believe that others can believe we have the best colours. An old Essendon supporter and teacher at that great football school St Pat’s Ballarat told my namesake in the 1960’s that he thought our jumper was more like an athletics singlet.
    It could be that other teams think our jumper is powerful but weren’t inclined to voice it until now the team is powerful too.
    I wept from seeing greatness. Bontempelli was Royce Hart at his best, full of grace, intertwining his ballet seamlessly into a game of football.

    A bit of a disclaimer needed as well. That sportingnews site is effectively a couple of high school kids ripping off content from BigFooty, other media, childish opinion pieces, and posting it as fact.

    Only difference is the big boys in the real press rip off the more credible 'Woof' instead.
    Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them: a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.”- Muhammad Ali
