Two full of talent NTNews football writer GREYMORRIS continues his series on the top 25 footballers to playVFL/ AFL. Today at No. 14, he couldnt split Daniel Motlop andAdrianMcAdam Daniel Motlop, left, and Adrian McAdam, right, both had amazing football talent, but it could be argued neither reached their full potential in the AFL 14. THE AFL journeys ofDaniel Motlop and Adrian McAdam can be embraced in just one word unfulfilled. Motlops 130 games and 208 goals with North Melbourne and Port Adelaide were almost double McAdams 36 matches and 92 goals with North. But a close analysis of both of their careers reveals a number of similarities their enormous talent only occasionally revealed. McAdams 36 games in two and a bit seasons were filled with highlights in the same manner Motlop kept Australias print and electronic media alive with his heroics on the playing arena. But was it enough from two players who could have easily reached the 250-game mark? Motlop went to North Melbourne via the No. 8 pick at the 2000 draft and made an immediate impression by getting reported in his first game against Richmond. After the 2005 season he was traded to Port Adelaide where his career really took off. A six-goal haul against Brisbane in the 2007 season including a goal of the year nomination and a grand final appearance offset ankle and collarbone injuries. A year later, Motlop ranked 10th on the list of most goals kicked in the AFL, including a career-best seven against Essendon and five against Fremantle including another candidate for goal of the year. But more ankle and shoulder problems robbed him of consistency, and forced the Power to delist him at the end of the 2011 season. He thrilled footy fans around Australia with his extraordinary skills, but Motlop is not sure if he would do it all again. Im not sure why I played AFL ... didnt win a premiership, cant walk that well, cant put my hands over my head and loving footy now, he later tweeted. North Melbourne recruited McAdam at No. 98 on the draft list on the basis of his brilliant form for Souths in the Alice Springs competition, and six goals for the CAFL rep side against SANFL club Port Adelaide in 1992. The younger brother of former St Kilda and Brisbane champion Gilbert, McAdam linked up with John Longmire and Wayne Carey in front of goals in 1993 and promptly kicked seven majors in his debut game against Richmond. That total was the best by a North Melbourne player on debut. Another 10 goals against Sydney the following week and six against Footscray took McAdam to 23 in his first three games an AFL record that still stands. He reached 50 goals in 10 games, one less than the record holder Allen Jakovich in his time at Melbourne a year earlier. His 68 goals in 17 games were followed by 22 from 12 matches in 1994 and two from his solitary appearance against the Western Bulldogs in 1995. By 1996, McAdam was gone back to Central Australia and the bush he knew so well.
