    Yes it is too early to say. Ablett is clearly at his peak but how long will he remain there? We may have already seen the best of Ablett Jnr - Its possible that next season he may suffer a major injury or an enormous form slump - we have seen this happen to quite a number of the games most promising players over the years.

    But what you ask IS very interesting so a star goes out to you.

    Unfortunatly only time can really answer your question .

    I am a huge fan of Hird, have followed his career right through and think he is the finest player of my lifetime - and I saw Coleman, Jack Clarke and several other real stars for the Dons.

    Buckley isn't far behind Hird, and Voss not far behind him. Robert Harvey would be the next I'd rate in 2008 players.They are all in an elite group of versatile and determined players who'll be remembered, and compared, forever.

    I think Ablett the Kitten has that quality as well. He's a mighty player, but isn't over-impressed with his own importance. He was one of the few Geelong players in the GF who kept on despite knowing all was lost.

    Would also predict that Franklin may reach that rank - too early to be sure for him, at 21 - Riewoldt, Jon Brown of the Liars, Cooney. There are half a dozen very young and very good players who may also get there.

    Yes, Ablett Jr is fit to mix with H B and V.

    I rate Gary Ablett very highly. In fact, I rank him in a list of the best players I have seen. I think putting Hird, Buckley and Voss as the 'Big 3' superstars of the league. I rank them in a long list of 'Superstars' that I have seen play in my short lifetime. This list includes (in no particular order):

    J. Hird

    N. Buckley

    M. Voss

    M. Ricciuto

    G. Archer

    W. Carey

    T. Lockett

    G. Ablett (snr)

    G. Ablett (jnr)

    C. Judd

    So, in answer to your question, Ablett, along with a heap of other players, is as good as those three players.

  • he is definately gonna be better than Buckley and Hird if he keeps this form up. but it'd be hard to top Voss though (captained his team to 4 grandfinals, winning 3 of them)

    On his current form he is outstanding.

    His speed and strength are remarkable, its very rare that he gets caught holding the ball or even tackled one on one for that matter. His ability to push forward and kick goals is also a valuble asset. Also coming from good genes wouldnt hurt his chances.
