AFL.com.au Mid Season AA Team

Recommended Posts

Funny how most commentators who put these out, including Slobbo, justify not putting Gawn and Grundy in their team because no teams play with 2 rucks (except top of the ladder West Coast), but then put Gray, Higgins and Caddy in the one team - not saying their not good players, but forward pressure is such a big part of today's game, and those guys aren't top notch in that area. Also no lock down defender either, so just come out and say we're picking the best 22 and putting them where we can fit them, rather than how a team would actually line up.

3 players on the ground, with Gawn in the ruck?

The media are always spot on...

😁

I built a statue of Kane Cornes when he said we'd finish 1st that I destroyed when he failed to pick some Dees in his Team of the Week after the Adelaide game.

I think a lot of the media pundits are picking Dusty based on 2017 form.

They keep hanging their hat on the fact he in no. 1 for score involvements,  Fact is there are far better performed midfielders than him this year.

AA lost its shine for me last year when Oliver wasn't even in the squad despite being top 5 in almost every category a midfielder's performance is measured.

Don't get too comfortable seeing Clarry in there, they still need to find room for Selwood, Dangerfield and Ablett.  

There is nothing more certain than the 'Holy Trinity' featuring in the AA team.

No Tmac, ok I get it's based on 9 rounds but really?

And 5 Meth Coke (ohhh how I love the Demonlanders' nick names)

Way better than Slobbos train wreck of a team.

Hes a good samaritan making every other journo look like experts.    So selfless.

Having said that 5 Eagles is ridiculous, and Jetta robbed again.

Also, Darling will be replaced by T Mac in the 2nd half o the season.

Cripps should be in there ahead of Martin.

I have no idea why Dusty is getting so much love.  Is he leading any categories this year?  Is he having a consistent impact on games?  I feel like he's had a good year but he hasn't even gotten close to matching last season.

Pending on Darling's form/fitness in the second half of the season, I think TMac is a strong case to make the final side based on his current form. Hibberd made the AA squad last year after missing the first 4 or 5 games so McDonald is still every bit as likely.

Also, Dusty getting the nod over a Cripps or Coniglio is laughable.

A balanced “B” side including very good role players for every position would easily beat a best 22 star studded side.
