Is this the biggest trophy cabinet in Australia????
Recently someone made a post of best VFA/VFL players who could of made it in the AFL. This got me thinking of some of the top players Ive seen at Port melbourne. Does anyone know of any current players at state level that can match the achievements of Jeremy Clayton??? 2x Best and fairests playing for Nth Ballarat Rebels TAC Cup 2x Best and fairests playing for Nth Ballarat Roosters VFL 2X Best and fairests playing for Port Melbourne VFL 3x Best and fairests playing for Port Adelaide Magpies SANFL 1x Magarey medal (Lead liston trophy in 2003 but was ineligible due to suspension) Hes also played AFL, represented 2 states, twice represented Vic Metro u18, won many tankards for best on ground in the VFL. Would have played many more AFL games had Dean Laidley not been coaching the Kangaroos.

It's hard to beat Burraburger.. I reckon he also should get a mention in the thread 'best player never to make it in the AFL'

Players to be drafted that year included Adam Goodes, Shane O'Bree, Shannon Watt, James Walker & Marcus Picken. A few of the name players in the Dandenong team were Brendan Fevola, Trent Croad, Kris Massie, Travis Johnstone, Stephen Milne etc.
