Fyfe the best in the AFL: Robinson

Nathan Fyfe kicks a nine-pointer against the Carlton Blues in the JLT Community Series.

Nat Fyfe has assumed the mantle of the AFL’s best player, according to the Herald Sun’s Mark Robinson.

In his annual assessment of the AFL’s top 50 players, Robinson ranked the 2015 Brownlow Medallist at number one, followed by Geelong’s reigning Brownlow Medallist in Patrick Dangerfield.

“Nathan Fyfe returns this year after a season on the sidelines and, in my opinion, assumes the mantle of the game’s best player ahead of Patrick Dangerfield who ended last year as the game’s best player,” Robinson wrote on heraldsun.com.au.

Fremantle fans can see both players going head to head, with Freo and the Cats clashing in Sunday’s Starlight Purple Haze game at Domain Stadium, proudly presented by Fremantle Ports.

“The best of Fyfe v the best of Dangerfield could be (film maker) Peter Dickson’s next documentary,” continued Robinson.

“Imagine that. They are both furious at the ball, powerful and explosive breaking away with it, and win the footy in tight, in space, on the burst or in the air. Dickson would nail it. 

“Fyfe is No. 1 by the narrowest of judgments. Very little else separates them, if anything but Fyfe’s superior marking as a resting forward — yes, I know Danger can mark as a forward — got him the nod."
