    Rating our list 2021: Alex Keath 42

    Hi All,

    During the off season I thought I would start our list rating again. I won't included the new recruits as there is nothing to go on and I'll leave out desisted and retired players as there is no point.

    Like last time I'll count down from the highest number to the lowest but I thought the poll rating this time will go on a different tack and get Woofers thoughts on how they rank from Elite to Below Average.

    The Bulldogs traded for Keath from Adelaide to help fill their key defensive void and he did just that, playing 18 games and proving a reliable stopper. The former first-class cricketer’s transition to footy has proven a great success and his 2020 season was rewarded with sixth place in the best and fairest award. Contracted until the end of 2022.

    Keath has made a huge impression on the team since his arrival and from a structure perspective you could argue that he is the most important player for us.

    When we played Essendon late in the season without Keath Peter Wright toweled us up with a 7 goal haul and we lost the game against them. Then a few weeks later with Keathy back we beat them easily and it was Peter who.
    He also kept Dixon not only goalless but scoreless.

    His kicking skills are also impressive and he organises the other defenders. We grabbed a great player for us given we are a genuine finals standard side.

    Is he elite? I'm not so sure but he's very close to it and I wouldn't argue against anyone rating him that highly.
    He's better than above average so for me he sits somewhere in between elite and above average...I went with elite.

    The fact we're pretty much stuffed without him says all you need to know.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    He has been a great pick up. We do play better when his in the team. I remember the commentators saying he had a patch going into finals that his man hadn't kicked any goals on him over a few weeks.
    Agree with GVGjr and he's between the elite and above average but I'll lean closer to above average.

    I went above average but is on the verge of elite. Really under rated by commentators, but then again other that Bont, our players are not rated by the so called experts.

    Keath is one of the best KPP that we have ever brought in from another club and is vital to our chances for top 4 this year.

    Great player who's so much more than advertised.

    Crucial to our success.

    I'd say he is elite. Who would be better than him as a full-back? May, Andrews, Grimes? Moore and Weitering are more CHB...I'm sure I'm missing some.

    I think if you're in the top 4 or 5 in your position you're elite.

    Elite. He's severely underrated by the AFL world.

    Love his game, unfortunately thought he was poor in the GF but he wasn't alone.

    The great part is how he transitioned from a highly rated intercept to an excellent 1v1 defender.
    Perhaps with a fit Gardner or Schache and an energized O'Brien we might be able to offer him some more support to cover the long bombs.

    I have an irrational love for Chief. The glue that holds it all together, can peel off or play lockdown, uses it well enough and gives an elite death stare to those who aren’t where they need to be. I’d rank him as elite, although I imagine league consensus would lean closer to above average.

    Elite. One of the best trades we've made in recent memory, I don't care if his legs are about to fall off, his basically Moz 2.0 for me.

    Also his death-stare is just the best.

    I'd have to rate his as being one the best trades as well. Has really settled in and made a huge difference to our back line.
