• Dangerfield wants out: Crow confirms he's leaving

1.v Greater Western Sydney, round five, 2014
Dangerfield's most dominant display was a manhandling of the modern game. He amassed 33 disposals, nine clearances and an incredible five goals against a hapless Giants outfit, who simply couldn't match anything he brought. He booted the Crows' first goal and brought up his fifth by roving a hit-out, shaking off a would-be tackler and slotting it from just outside 50m. 

2. v Carlton, round eight, 2012
The force of the collision between Dangerfield and Carlton skipper Marc Murphy was sickening. The pair threw themselves at a loose, 50/50 ball and cannoned into each other like a head-on between two semis. Both were clearly hurt, but Dangerfield managed to pick himself up and guide the Crows to a 69-point win with 35 possessions, eight clearances, eight inside 50s, six tackles, two goals and two goal assists. Murphy couldn't recover from the hit and hobbled from the field nursing a fractured shoulder.

3. v Fremantle, round three, 2011
Few players escape the clutches of Docker Stephen Hill when he decides to run someone down. Then again, few people possess the raw speed of Patrick Dangerfield. Early in his career Dangerfield played on from a free kick at half-back and Hill gave chase. But that's all he did; Danger took three bounces straight through the middle of AAMI Stadium and drilled the goal from outside 50m without Hill laying a finger on him.

4. v Brisbane Lions, round two, 2013
Adelaide trailed by eight points at the final change but Dangerfield stood up in the final quarter and booted two miraculous goals to see his side home. The first highlighted all that makes him so good – explosive speed and strength. He gathered a loose ball in the centre square, ran his full distance and from 55m he blasted a thundering left-foot goal. Minutes later he again roved superbly and snapped truly off his preferred right foot to offer the Crows some breathing space. 

5. v Fremantle, round nine, 2015
This was one of the most memorable battles of the 2015 season: Dangerfield v Nat Fyfe. The competition's two contested kings went head-to-head at Adelaide Oval and although the Dockers won, Dangerfield's ability to win contested possessions was just extraordinary. He and Fyfe both found plenty of the footy, but Dangerfield's 29 contested possessions equaled the AFL record set by Sydney Swan Josh Kennedy.

6. v Port Adelaide, round five, 2012
He's a player that loves the big stage and games don't get bigger in South Australian than Showdowns. The Power took the lead in the final term in 2012, but Dangerfield was brilliant all night to score the Crows a 19-point win. Included in his 39 possessions were seven clearances and 14 inside 50s. The performance saw him awarded the Showdown Medal as best afield. 

7. v Fremantle, round 20, 2012
The Dockers certainly seem to have brought the best out of Adelaide's 'Raging bull'. Having just bombed a 50m set shot from a 45 degree angle, Dangerfield swooped on a miskick from Josh Jenkins, split two Fremantle players and launched another from almost 60m. His 34 possessions, two goals and eight tackles earned him three Brownlow Medal votes.

8. v West Coast, round 15, 2015
The courage required of every Adelaide player to take to the field for the first time after the death of coach Phil Walsh will be remembered forever, but that of Dangerfield to perform to the level he did was heroic. His side was blown away, but Dangerfield collected 36 disposals, laid eight clearances and cleared the ball 12 times.

9. v Essendon, round 20, 2008
Leading out from full forward, an 18-year-old Dangerfield marked strongly overhead about 40m out from goal. Right on the paint of 50m and on the half-time siren, he slotted an important goal with his first kick in senior footy. The Crows would go on to win that game by 56 points and a future star of the competition was born. 

10. Grand Final sprint hat-trick
Dangerfield's speed was given a podium and a spotlight and it drew a standing ovation. He easily took out the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Grand Final sprints, barely challenged as he strode across the finish lines. Had he continued to race, Dangerfield could quite conceivably have added a fourth-straight victory last year.

11. v Hawthorn, semi-final, 2015
He didn't finish too badly either – at least from a personal perspective. The Crows were smashed by the Hawks, ending their 2015 season but Dangerfield was their best. He collected 29 possessions, laid four tackles and booted a miraculous goal and the way he was embraced by his teammates as he walked off the MCG suggested they sensed his time with them was done. Another chapter in Dangerfield's career is about to open and there's no doubt it'll contain countless more spectacular moments as he reaches the peak of his powers.
