    Lance "Buddy" Franklin is like the LeBron of AFL. He's probably the safest answer. One of the best forwards of all-time.

    Current best player would have to be either Buddy Franklin, Dusty Martin, Nat Fyfe, Brodie Grundy or Paddy Dangerfield

    NFL punters get no respect. AFL punters are f---in' superstars.

    Is what he does similar to what punters do in NFL? I'm not overly familiar with them. I know the position as a few AFL players have gone on to play there as punters - Ben Graham played in a SuperBowl for the Jets I think. He's been our most successful there. I remember there was one SuperBowl where both teams had an Aussie on their team as well. The majority of Aussies over there have been punters due to big kicks being a huge part of our game. Jarryd Hayne played a few games for San Fran a couple of years ago too, he was a rugby player though so was one of the few that wasn't a punter as rugby's quite similar to NFL - in simple terms it's essentially NFL but you can't throw forward.

    Punters only come out when the offense fails. They have to get the ball closest to the end zone so the other time has a longer way to go for their own touchdown. It's a really specialized position and one known for having less physically imposing guys in it. Seeing an athlete of Buddy's caliber do it and have it be an integral part of the game is humorous by comparison.

    Yeah, I realised after writing that I actually knew what a punter was I wasn't thinking ha - that sort of kicking is literally a basic skill to be honest. It's literally like the core of the game in AFL.

    If you can't kick it 50 metres and not hit your teammate on the chest you're pretty much considered a dud.

    I literally just picked this vid at random but check out even just the first two players, they're tiny and one kicks it over 50 metres on the run
