And this is why people say 'if he played for a Victorian team...'

Guaranteed if Fyfe played for a Vic team they'd squeeze him into token AA forward slots every single year if they couldn't fit him into the midfield. Danger and Martin both get in on reputation, Fyfe wins two Brownlows and that's still not enough reputation points because he doesn't play for a Victorian team.

The worst part is it'll be held against him come the end of all their careers.

‘8 Times All Australian and captain, he’s now an all time great’ say the same people who select him every season and on the forward flank because he wasn’t a top 5 midfielder for the year.

Not that Dangerfield isn’t a great player, but gee his reputation has been overinflated by the Channel 7 commentators who make up half the selection panel.

Sam Walsh voted best young player by the coaches yet Zak Butters was selected in the top 40 AA squad?...

Great to see the likes of Brad Sheppard, Luke Ryan and Caleb Daniel get the recognition they deserve, no point parroting what's already been said but at least some AFL players are calling out the ridiculous amount of on-ballers selected in the AA squad.
