I'm actually surprised he made it. Had a good year but not as good as last year. Was injured in the first quarter against the Dockers, missed the next two games and then took a few games to get back in the groove after his dust-up.

Most "new" champion choices often make the team in their second breakout year as Selectors trust the new champs on the block. 

Players like Sinclair and Saad are one hit wonders generally.

Felt like Brayshaw stiff not to at least make the bench, not sure rozee had that good of a year. One again no wings, with the way the transition game is played these days they are one of the most important roles in any serious team, no coincidence that all the best sides have at least one good winger.

Rozee finished 5th in the coaches votes 1 behind Tracc and 10 behind Clarry and Miller. He deserves his spot.

how Tom Lynch doesn’t get in ahead of Hawkins is beyond me though. Clearly wanted a cats captain.

Don’t get the Tom lynch or tex argument

you can’t have more than 3 kpf

i actually think it should only be 2

curnow most goals 

cameron probably best overall player this year 

and Tom Hawkins goals and goal assists probably gives him nod as well as geelongs record 

tom lynch only kicked 19 goals against top 8 teams with bags at the end of the year against hawks who didn’t even play sicily on him and Essendon who were cooked

For starters, Hawkins only kicked 16 goals against top 8 teams (8 games, 2 goals/game) and Lynch kicked 19 goals against top 8 teams from 5 games (3.8 goals/game) and kicked more goals overall despite playing 5 less games. It was an objectively superior body of work.

I used to live next door to Clarko. I had an argument with him about who was better out of Oliver and Cripps.

1 to Wrecker 0 for Clarko.

When we payed Carlton I noticed Cripps tagging Oliver a few times at centre bounces. Oliver would get away from him and Cripps was following him.

You won't see Clarry tagging anyone. Cam.you.imagime if he got a free run.at the ball.

 

You had an argument with Clarko? Have you got a death wish? 😛

Disgrace that Hawkins is Captain.

Has never captained at any level. Borderline cheat with his 'flailing' arms and elbows

Don't forget the litres of baby oil to make it harder to tackle him and some of his team mates.

Hawkins captain is a bigger middle finger than Trump getting presidency.

Maybe if the selectors let people know their criteria.

In my my if you are a club captain and good enough to make the starting 18 then You should be 1st choice . If their a more than one choose the captain they feel had the better year (Cripps this year)

If it's just a lifetime achievement award just let people know to avoid all the ambiguity

I think part of it is to generate discussion

I’d like it if the players awarded AA were then asked on the spot to vote for their  captain (not the selectors captain). Secret ballot style to be read out at the end.
I think that would result in a captain everyone respects.

That's right. I personally thought Cripps should have been bench but he's in the team so captain makes sense. Or how about this novel concept: Touk Miller?

It's not supposed to be a popularity contest and something where bozos can chat afterwards with comments like "I'm glad they gave it to him"

Must admit I just expected it to be the Premiership Captain who just received his sixth All Australian Jacket but I suppose Hawkins has been such a great captain at glong. Grrrr bloody grrrr. Turned off at that point.!!!!

I think they let the people know when first Rance, and then Franklin was made AA captain in 2018. He wasnt part of the leadership group at the Swans and like Hawkins had never been captain. Since Selwood they spread it around now.   

They dont spell it out because they know the outrage and debate get the clicks!

Has a player ever won the Brownlow and not made the AA team. 

Woewodin immediately springs to mind

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
