    Wilson from GWS unlucky. Would have him in ahead of Martin or Brad Hill

    I reckon that would be a winner if Vics were split into country and Metro

    I don't have a problem with him. I created the team once and just copy and paste it to another thread. I remembered to change Queenslands ruckman from Zac Smith to the new North Melbourne guy but I forgot to add Andrews.

    It's still fun for some people to pick the teams though. FFS the AA team never plays.

    No one is forcing anyone to read the thread.

    Hipwood is from Queensland, and not a defender.

    So many things wrong with this side:

    1. Hipwood is a forward from Queensland. Adam Treloar is from Aspendale, located about a 30 minute train ride from Melbourne.
    2. Ben Reid, Lachie Henderson, Robbie Tarrant, James Frawley, Tom McDonald are all ahead of Weitering as a key defender.
    3. Jeremy Cameron is a lock for Full Forward
    4. Shane Mumford shits on Ben McEvoy as a ruckman from a great height
    5. Sam Docherty, Bob Murphy, Easton Wood, Tom Ruggles, Jackson Nelson, Jasper Pittard, Jake Lloyd are all superior small defenders to the ones you've listed. Now let's put together a real team.

    FB: Easton Wood - Robbie Tarrant - Lachie Henderson
    HB: Sam Docherty - Ben Reid - Bob Murphy
    MF: Brendan Goddard - Joel Selwood - Zachary Merrett
    HF: Steele Sidebottom - Jarryd Roughead - Luke Dahlhaus
    FF: Dustin Martin - Jeremy Cameron - Sam Reid
    OB: Shane Mumford - Scott Pendlebury - Patrick Dangerfield
    IC: Dyson Heppell - Tom Rockliff - Gary Ablett - Ollie Wines

    wouldn't mind seeing a Vic Metro v Vic Country series each year

    Game 1 in Melbourne (Etihad)
    Game 2 in Ballarat
    Game 3 in Geelong

    Thankful there's no state of origin anymore.. SA haven't got the talent we once had in the 80s & 90s. we have gone backwards.

    NSW/ACT vs SA would be an interesting game.

    I'd prefer the strongest state (still Victoria) versus the dream team of the rest like 2008

    Edithvale-Aspendale play in the MPNFL, which is in the VCFL. Hipwood was listed as Vic Country. Stevie J is still a class act and would make the forward 6 in a heartbeat.

    Aspendale is Suburbia. Which league it's played in is irrelevant.

    If he played in TAC football; he would have played for Sandy. A Vic Metro club.

    It was how it was maesured..the Vic Metro border still ends at Mordialloc (strangely enough given Chelsea in the Southern league)..as it is Treloar was with Dandenong Stingrays, which count as Victoria Country in TAC Ranks and AFL Victoria ranks.

    And he started at Noble Park anyway.

    Wait, really? So players like Baguley (a Frankston boy) would be a VC boy? I just assumed that any team inwards of Pakenham/Cranbourne/Frankston would be considered Metro as they're officially part of Melbourne Suburbia.

    Half the TAC cup teams are considered 'metro' and the other half 'country' when the U18 championships come up.

    Clearly, the outer suburbs (and some not so outer) are deemed 'country' in order to create a more even split.
