Slobbo's Mid Year All Australian

Recommended Posts

Hope Maxxy reads it, accepts the challenge ( as he has done all year) and puts it beyond doubt. Max is no fool and I think last year doesn’t sit well with him.

The bloke has no idea. 

Tom Phillips is in his team. 

 

To be fair, he is getting 27.2 possies rotating through the midfield.

I'm more surprised that he didn't choose his team like the Essendon fanboy that he is (complete with Hirdy as 'honorary coach').

I don't care how many possessions he's getting. 

It's Tom Phillips. 

I'm disgusted.

Name a bit too generic for you?

What if he were called Smedley Cornelius Cruddington the Third?

I could see Bruce and BT loving the hell out of that name on a Friday night.

10 points for creativity. 

If that were his name, it'd be the opposite. He'd be in the AA team every year regardless of whether he were playing or not.

Not sure why everyone is getting so worked up, it's a mid-year AA team picked by a hack journalist. Has no meaning whatsoever.

Grundy's having an AA-level year. So is Gawn of course, and IMO Gawn is better, but the idea that someone might pick Grundy over Gawn if they're going with one ruckman isn't ridiculous.

Martin and Rance shouldn't be in anyone's AA side right now, though.

Correct. Close this thread for irrelevancy.

It about New Ltd. causing outrage so we all talk about them. Lets deny our oxygen.

And of course Grundy is in - he's Collingwood, the papers main reading audience to whom this team is targeted .

Clearly you should be on Robbo's pay and the journo

A much more balanced view

Gawn missing out isn't an outrage. Grundy has been a gun and whilst he isn't as good in the tap outs he is superior around the ground and his foot skills are far superior. Gawns shots at goal have cost us dearly this season so I think that puts him down a few pegs.

Grundy gets the nod, because Eddie thinks he'll win the Brownlow... and 9-10 Herald Sun readers are Collingwood supporters - the ones that actually still bother to go to a newsagent to buy a paper anymore.

No Neville Jetta either.  A complete outrage. 

Poor old Filth supporters, they are misunderstood. They buy a newspaper because it is a 'news pictorial', not for the words, the journalism, the current affairs and news items at the broader spectrum of national communications. Slobbo's team selection is an example of what Eddie needs to support his fellatious Brownlow dogma and therein lies a message itself; the 'Herald-Sun' is the most likely source of pictures that might communicate in a limited way for Eddie to get his otherwise meaningless message through and for the Filth followers, any message that Saint Eddie espouses repesents their daily dose of vomitus they so needfully crave.

Can't put my finger on it, but there are many things that I really like about this team proposal. It does look awesome; a prodigal effort in selection with the balance of sheer talent on show. Well done.

No Max.

Oliver and Hogan named on the bench.

ROBBO’S MID-YEAR ALL-AUSTRALIAN TEAM

BACKS: Rory Laird (Adel), Alex Rance (Rich), Tom Stewart (Geel)

HALF-BACKS: Shannon Hurn (WC), Jeremy McGovern (WC), James Sicily (Haw)

CENTRES: Tom Phillips (Coll), Jack Macrae (WB), Andrew Gaff (WC)

INTERCHANGE: Clayton Oliver (Melb), Trent Cotchin (Rich), Patrick Cripps (Carl), Jesse Hogan (Melb)

 

Oh this is hilarious! The clear absence of Melbourne players on the park (only on the pine) tells me that 1. Slobbo might actually read this forum, and 2. He’s taken offence to his acquired namesake!

Actually a pretty good team. Hard to argue about too much. Lot of negativity on here where Robbo has put together a reasonable side showing decent judgement.

Those knocking Grundy and Phillips might want to wait until we've played them. Both very good players.

Nev had a slow first month. Doesn't excuse him missing last year but he's not AA right now. Backline is spot on.

Can't argue with the midfield. Forward line - might move Hogan to CHF, let Buddy roam a flank and have Dusty on the bench.

Gawn is very unlucky. Robbo admits he's the most stiff. He'll get his chance v Grundy, and if they both play well then maybe a midfield misses out.

...but I will.

I would have Oliver in the guts, McCrae to a wing and Phillips on the bench.

Not that it's a big deal, just bragging rights.

Fair point. I don't care much about the positions because at the end of the career they say a player is an AA or dual AA or 7 time AA or whatever, especially for midfielders making it matters more than the spot. Macrae hasn't played much wing this year so I'd leave Phillips in his proper position and put Clarry in the guts!
