On the back page of News Limited newspapers on Tuesday morning, Blight, who it is said to be well-placed to judge the merit of the pair having coached Gary Sr and watched Gary Jr, made the statement that he felt the son had surpassed the father because of his two premierships, a Brownlow Medal, and apparently, his deeds so far for Gold Coast.

Leaving aside the fact that Blight - who has already been called out for his Gold Coast bias while in commentary this year - is a board member of the Suns with a vested interest in pumping up the fledgling club, the argument is a ridiculous one.
Perhaps the most insulting assertion from Blight is the fact that Ablett Jr stands above his father because of two premierships. There is little more Ablett Sr could have done to carry the Cats to victory in 1989, kicking nine goals and winning the Norm Smith Medal.
In 1992, he kicked three goals as the Cats lost to West Coast, and while he went missing in '94 and '95, he wasn't the only Geelong player to have bad days in those two thrashings to very good teams.
There was an argument to say that the reason Ablett Sr never won a premiership was Blight's own reluctance to change the 'downhill skier' mentality at the club and add some accountability to the group which could have yielded them the ultimate success.
Finally, Blight talks up the impression Gary Jr has made at Gold Coast. There is no doubt Gary Jr is a stronger leader than his father was, but isn't it a bit early to start talking up what he has done for the team considering he has played just seven games?

A bronze statue of South Australian football legend Malcolm Blight has been unveiled at Adelaide Ovaloutside the Victor Richardson gates.
Blight, who transitioned from prolific goal kicker to successful coach said he was surprised by the honour.
Much loved by South Australians for leading the Adelaide Crows to back-to-back premierships, Blight is the only player to kick 100 goals in a season in both the VFL and SANL.
"It's actually difficult to describe, to be honest," he said about the statue.
"The first emotion when I heard about the sculpture was surprise and the second was that my football life flashed before my eyes a little."

Blight played 163 games for Woodville and won the Magarey Medal in 1972 before moving to North Melbourne in 1972 where he went on to play 178 games and kick 444 goals.
He won two premierships with North Melbourne and won the 1978 Brownlow Medal before returning to Woodville to play and coach.
