Jimmy Bartel; possibly the Cats best in season 2012 so far

Jimmy Bartel has nearly done it all.  So it begs the question; is he ‘the’ Cats best ever player?  Look at his achievements below and see his resume is just about complete.

  • AFL premiership medallion (2007, 2009, 2011)
  • 2-time NAB Cup premiership winner (2006, 2009)
  • Brownlow Medal (2007)
  • 2-time All-Australian (2007, 2008)
  • AFL Rising Star Nomination (2002)
  • Norm Smith Medal (2011)

The only thing missing is a Carji Greeves medal for Geelong Cats’ Best and Fairest.  Find out what drives him to succeed, it’s all revealed in the two following videos.  The way he is tracking this season just might see him winning that elusive best and fairest.

Establishing himself as an elite mid-fielder and winning the Brownlow Medal in that position, in recent years he has transformed in to one of the games most versatile and accomplished players.  He can play tall, he can ‘run-with’, he can take a great mark and he’s ever so reliable kicking in front of goal.  Pound for pound, definitely up there amongst the best.  Above all, he’s humble, likeable and approachable.
