All-time season stats record-holders

AFL 2003 Rd 18 - Brisbane v Kangaroos
Jason Akermanis still owns a number of season records

A QUICK look at the all-time home and away season leaders record-holders provides a reminder of Kangaroo Todd Goldstein's standing in the game.

The star ruckman racked up the most total hit-outs (937) and ball-up hit-outs (262) in his 2015 All Australian campaign, while also winning the most centre bounce hit-outs (350) two years earlier.

Among the other players with multiple all-time records are Dustin Martin, Patrick Dangerfield, Clayton Oliver, Sam Docherty, Andrew Gaff, Jason Akermanis and Nick Riewoldt.

Champion Data has been the AFL's official statistician since 1999.
