Reminiscing about football’s past has been a key coping mechanism for many Australians as we navigate through this baron, game-less period due to the coronavirus.

You don’t need to look much further than the Bulldogs’ Twitter account for evidence of this – every single day while there are no matches being played, Shane Biggs’ glorious Grand Final passage of play is replayed for the fans

Momentous Moments, Fixture Throwbacks, moments from ‘On this Day’ – it’s a smorgasbord of footy nostalgia. 

The Herald Sun has done their bit too, ranking the top 20 players from each club, from the modern era.

Today was the Bulldogs’ turn, and it was 341-game Club Legend Chris Grant who came out on top in journalist Sam Landsberger’s eyes.
