Former North Melbourne rover Barry Cable has been inducted into the AFL's Hall of Fame with Legend status, becoming the 24th person to receive the honour.
Cable was joined by Shane Crawford, Bob Johnson, Chris Grant, Graham Cornes, Glenn Archer and Robert Harvey as Hall of Fame-inductees on Wednesday at an event at the Crown Palladium in Melbourne.
Cable was part of the Kangaroos' first two premiership teams in 1975 and 1977 in a 116-game stint with North Melbourne.
Prior to his time with North, the West Australian played 268 matches in the WAFL, winning the Sandover Medal as league best and fairest three times.
Cable won three straight WAFL premierships with Perth from 1966-68, winning the Simpson Medal for best on ground in all three grand finals.
Crawford was the first and youngest inductee on Wednesday after 305 games and the 2008 AFL premiership with Hawthorn, while Johnson was rewarded for his five VFL premierships with Melbourne from 1955 to 1960 and an impressive WAFL career.
Grant was a member of the Western Bulldogs Team of the Century and played 341 games for the club, while Cornes was Adelaide's inaugural coach and played for North Melbourne between stints with Glenelg and South Adelaide in the SANFL.
Archer, a two-time premiership player with the Kangaroos, and Harvey, who won consecutive Brownlow Medals in 1997 and 1998 during his career with St Kilda, were the last two players to be inducted into the Hall of Fame before Cable's announcement as a Legend.
