Team of the Century
B: Dwayne Lamb Brian Sarre Lou Daily
HB: Laurie Kettlewell Brighton Diggins Bill Faul
C: Snowy Hamilton Peter Featherby Dean Kemp
HF: George Young Phillip Matson Gary Buckenara
F: Allistair Pickett Austin Robertson Tom Outridge
Foll: Mike Fitzpatrick (c) Haydn Bunton Johnny Leonard
Int: Laurie Keene Fred Williams Drew Banfield
Brett Heady
Coach: Haydn Bunton, Jr.

That is a pretty good side. I would make the following changes:

Brad Smith for Pickett
Keith Watt for the great Tommy Outridge, especially as we have Keene on the bench.

On the whole those responsible for picking the side did a good job indeed.

Bloody good side - but as much as I admire Featherby, I would have Cammy Blakemore in the middle.

I am sure sure Okker would agree with me. Pete could rack them up, but could he hit the supreme forward on the chest?

Look forward to the discussion.

Jack: naturally, I never saw Cammie play, but I had a work colleague whom did see him play. Let us, just say that the chap regarded Blackmore as the most magnificent player, even as an EF supporter. In fact, come to think of it, I have an Uncle whom also spoke about his greatness. It is pity he got sick.

I agree with you on Featherby's kicking to position.

Yes saw plenty of Cam Blakemore, very lightly framed bloke but incredibly brave and superbly skilled, his long droppies and blistering stab passes gave Ocker plenty of laces out supply. The classic format was a 70+m Sarre droppy out from goal to a fast moving Blakemore who looked up to see Ockers lightening fast lead and hit him on the chest with a 40m stab pass that never got more than 2m off the ground. Couple of other handy players who gave ocker great supply were Wally Martin and the great Reggie Hampson and of course one H. Bunton Jnr.
Feathers would be just a bee's dick behind Cam, his ability to run all day and rack up possessions was way ahead of his time, to regularly get 30/40 disposals a game back in the 70's and 80's was almost unheard of, that equates to 60-70 in the current chip it everywhere style. Very few could go with Feathers the whole game, the only one I remember getting close to doing that was WP great Mel Whinnen, those two have some epic battles.

Toss of the coin for mine between the two...one question...is the Haydn Bunton in the followers Senior or Junior? If it's Senior then he'd have to captain the side with 3 Brownlows and 3 Sandovers .... if it's Junior where is Senior?

AR if you're gonna swap Ali Pickett with Brad Smith, surely Ali takes Banfields spot.

BC Bunton snr is the ruck rover
PN Good one. I am with you on Pickett versus Banfield. We don't need another back pocket player

My memory of Banfield is primarily as a tagger, particularly later in his career.

He did kick 76 goals as an Eagle, and 11 during his 32 games with Subi.
