Port Melbourne - Team of the decade

I've been thinking of putting together a team of the decade over the past few weeks, however I'd love contributions/nominations of who you think deserves to be in the side.

I will go back over the playing list for those seasons and add the names and then trim the list down to a final 22.

There are a few automatic selections.. Port Melbourne and VFL Life member Ryan McMahon being the most obvious one. There are a few that will probably get a spot from both Sydney and North Melbourne's list.

Interesting.. From memory David Dunbar coached Port the GF in 2002. Then Fitzy did in 2004.

I'll try and work out win/loss ratios. I'd still say Ayres would get the job.

Port Melbourne listed players only.. I'll try and work that out.

Certainly I was thinking players like Amon Buchanon would have found a spot in the side.

There aren't too many that would be AFL-listed that I would have included.

their supported teams.
Go Borough!2010.

Sure Bobby,
I must admit I was being a little facetious when I mentioned Fitzy. However when you lose a grand final by a kick it must be said that you have had a fantastic year.
If Port had have won that grand final would Fitzy have got the nod then ??

A few of those I had listed in an earlier post.. Good nominations Bobby. Pleming for sure.

The rucks will be interesting to choose from.
