No he hasn't.
He has played close to the same amount of games as Macca, except most of those were in the ISC instead of NRL, and while I admit it's not the same level, anyone reading you would think that ISC is kiddie footy, and it's really not.

Granville Joined Wynnum in 2008, played in the Broncos NYC as well, and has had as many years of senior footy as Macca. You can argue he may have developed better in the NRL, but you can't say he had limited game time to develop his skills, because that does happen in the ISC as well.
Yeah I did mean limited game time in terms of NRL. As for the rest, I'll have to respectfully disagree. The ISC is a quality competition, no doubts there. The NRL is the superior competition though. The speed is quicker for one thing so a player will naturally be forced to adjust in terms of decision making etc. Macca didn't have that from the get go. He made his debut in 2008, I think and he has had a long time to become an integral part of our team. He's been guaranteed his spot pretty much regardless of form.

It might seem like I have an axe to grind against Macca but that's not the case. I'm a fan of his and he has busted his **** more than most to get us out of some holes over the last few years. As I said in my earlier posts, the main difference I see between the two is simply experience and everything that stems from that (tackling, direction, decisions etc). In terms of ability, they're pound for pound, imo.

No one has said they are the same thing, they are just saying ISC will still allow them to develop their skills. People are acting like Granville didn't know what a footy was until last year and using made up facts to support some theory that he would no doubt be better than macca and that the broncos backed the wrong horse.
It's too early to call one way or the other. Remember ours is the club that preferred Norman over Hunt, allowed Petero to leave and signed Clinton... shall I go on?
