Hibberd has been superb every week since he came into the side. He is becoming an "elite" player very quickly. 

We haven't had an elite player since Robbie Flower. I am still not 100% comfortable with having Drug Cheats at The MFC, but i am very impressed with the way "Pig" Hibberd plays the game. 

He has September written all over him. 

Melksham took a bit longer to settle, but he is fast becoming a most important cog. 

His goal in the last Quarter was a Cracker to seal the game

This is also off the back of his article on Saturday about how the Bombers 'can beat anyone'.  Turn it up, Velvet.

Glad i didn't read that. I would have become violent!!

why is he allowed to write such garbage?

Similiar to his article on Hardwick a few weeks back, who is obviously a mate. 

Hardwick is a good bloke, but hardly coach of the year!!

It's a shame, too, as I usually don't mind his stuff.  But he let his bias get in the way big time, which is evident in him having 4 Bombers in his 'AA' team.

Doesn't Lloyd just look so uncomfortable and awkward on camera? It almost makes me uncomfortable watching him speak.

He has that micro gap between each word. Awkward and uncomfortable is a perfect description

He forgets what the Swannettes did a few weeks ago... :)

Lloydy reminds me of a pin cushion that's had all the air and cushion and pins lost from it.......

I don't actually notice him that much in games compared to other players like Viney and Jetta, but he just goes about his game in a no nonsense, business like manner and gets the job done, week in, week out.

He did gain over 800m in the game. You should watch closer :)

Our defence was seen as a critical weakness that would prevent us going far in the finals or even making it.... Until Hibberd came in and made an impact and they all started to gel into a well oiled machine.

We are still short of a big bodied defender now that TMac plays fwd..

Hibberd will win the Bluey this season if he keeps up his form (IMO).

Absolute top class player and ultra consistent

I think he is more bias than Eddie.. he can be hard to watch if the bombers have had a win. And suggesting fantasia had had a better year than Garlett is just laughable

Put another way, we're currently short a big bodied forward without TMAC going forward. 

Id like to see how we go on Ben Brown and Patton, Hipwood, McCArtin over the next month to reassess how our team defence handles a very tall forward now that they've found more sync.

Not much love for this guy that played his 100th game today.

Another great game and really put his body on the line in the last qtr (as did Oscar and Lewis).

The recruit of the year for mine and probably top 2 in the Bluey (altho he missed the first 4 games). I love having him at the Demons and he is one of the few players that i feel calm when the ball is in his hands. Very glad he chose the Demons.

Love what he brings to the table, always makes a contest and you can bet he'll use it when we need him too.

So I am gonna assume he will be in the AA team.

We are on the verge of finals and he has been phenomenal.

If they put Howe or that Docherty bloke from 5 win Carltank in ahead of him the selectors should be hung.

The metres gained king and averaging 28 touches off half back combined with his immense courage....  surely will be AA.

Michael Hibberd: Missed the first four games due to an Achilles injury, but the former Bomber has been one of the competition's best defenders this season. Hibberd has been one of the recruits of the year, with the attacking defender averaging a career-high 28 disposals and ranking No.1 in the AFL for average metres gained per match (566.9m).
