    He was at the height of his game before his knee injury, who knows how he'd have gone further into the 80s if not for that injury in 81.

    Re: Kelvin Templeton - Hall of Fame Bulldog!

    I never had the pleasure to see him play for the red, white and blue. I would love to hear from anyone who saw him play? His resume speaks for itself and I have watched the highlights, in particular the day where he kicked 15 goals. But would love to see hear some insights about KT and some of the nuances that made him such a special player.

    Great contested mark, lead well and a booming kick. Kicked 118 goals one year in a side that finished 11th of 12th. Moved to CHF in 1980 and kicked 75 goals in a season where we only won 5 games.

    As an aside from the evening, how cooked is the mirth and merrymaking over Dane Swan regaling the time he was arrested and Whateley lapping it up.

    The cleaner involved received a permanent brain injury. Swan apparently didn't pay up years later after litigation resulted in a settlement.

    Whateley and Robbo called it out as the best moment of the night. ****en cooked.

    This is an industry struggling with how to deal with concussion, and an entire ballroom of industry people thought it was hilarious that Dane Swan righted his career after giving someone an injury that left them permanently impaired.

    What a pack of ****s. Could you imagine being at home, watching on TV that unfold and it was you who was bashed by a pack of shithead footy players and the entire industry thinks it's funny?

    Great player, for 2 or 3 years his marking was right up there with the best we have ever seen.

    Totally ****ed.

    How does Swan get into the Hall of fame? He wasn't that good as a player. Took Kelvin over 40 years to get in and he has achieved much more than Swan did in his playing career.

    On Twitter Swan is the biggest nut case, plus I thought they take into consideration the ex players personal life and whether they pass the good citizen test. Ben Cousins, Gary Ablett are not in the hall due to this.

    Agree with you commentary on his personal life. Don't like his overall persona either. But Swan was a great player, to say anything lese is disingenuous.

    In four consecutive seasons. His Brownlow votes.

    2010 - 24 (third)
    2011 - 34 (won)
    2012 - 25 (third)
    2013 - 26 (thid)

    Premiership Player
    B&F in Premiership year
    Brownlow Medalist
    Leigh Mathews Trophy
    5 x All Australian
    3 x Copeland Trophys
    3 x second B&F
    1 x third B&F
    7 x top three finish in B&F

    In the entire history of the AFL, he ranks 15th for Brownlow votes average per game at 0.78. For context, Bont averages 0.83 and Gary Ablett Jnr 0.79. He also averaged the same as Dustin Martin, Patrick Cripps and Bob Skilton.

    You may not have liked him. But Dane Swan was a star. (This comes from someone who HATES COLLINGWOOD)

    How many others with that record? Ok, that record looks good, but How does he get in the same year as Kelvin who has been ignored for 40 years.

    Hall of fame is a joke.

    KT being ingored was a joke. Agree. It doesn't mean that Swan is not deserving.

    I was listening to SEN and they mentioned Templeton's performances in State of Origin as what might have got him over the line.
    Playing well under 200 games worked against him just a bit

    Fascinating revelation in today's Age that KT was told by an official as he walked into the 1980 brownlow function, that he was the winner and to think about his speech.

    That was a great segment wasn’t it?

    I was too young to see KT and didn’t actually believe TwoDogs when he kept banning on about him.

    I actually got shivers listening to the commentary on one of the state games.
    More of an In Bruges guy?
