    Re: Who is the best Bulldog of the modern era?

    I can remember watching Andrejs in his first preseason and thinking we had gotten a star. That raking left boot always seemed to swallow meterage along the ground up. A bit more confidence in his ability wouldn't have gone astray.

    Fossie had a couple of really good years after 1990 until 1992 when Greg Dear broke his leg.

    Herald Sun footy writer Sam Landsberger runs the rule of the Bulldogs best since 1987.

    He's a seriously underrated player in the broader league conversation, a flag in 1997 would have made a huge difference to how he was perceived.
    Agreed - he's stiff not to be a dual Brownlow medalist. He'd be thought of very differently throughout the footy world if 2-3 things went slightly differently (Mercuri goal round 22 1996, and 97 (Ian Collins + that other September stuff))
