AFL - Most Consecutive Games - Jim Stynes
Jim Stynes major achievement of a record consecutive games began in Round 18 1987 and came about with determination, strong will, courage and sacrifice. In 1993 Jim had a collision with a teammate when Melbourne played North Melbourne. With a fractured rib he played the next games against the wishes of the medical team. He had begged his coach to pass him in his fitness test and he would play with the assistance of a chest guard. Jim got his wish. More injuries happened in following years but Jim didn't raise an eyebrow. In Round 9 of 1996 Jim played his 203rd consecutive game, breaking the previous record held by Jack Titus, held since 1943.
Stynes broke his hand early in the 1998 season, effectively ending his streak of consecutive games finally at 244.
