The 99-Game Club

Crameri the latest addition?

If Stewart Crameri fails to earn a lifeline this post-season, he will join a select group of VFL/AFL players whose careers finished on 99 games. 

In 121 years of the league’s existence, only 20 players have fallen one game short of the century.

The most recent additions to the 99-game club were Carlton’s Brad Fisher and Geelong’s Mark Blake back in 2010.

Richmond ruckman Ray Hall is the only other player to finish up on 99 games since 2000.

Crameri was delisted by the Western Bulldogs on Wednesday. The 29-year-old played for Essendon for four seasons before joining the Doggies.
