Finally found the selection panel and with the exception of Lachlan's dad and Hey Jude, all are head-wobblers and prove the point
Gillon McLachlan (non-voting Chairman), Andrew Dillon, Chris Johnson, Glen Jakovich, Warren Tredrea, Cameron Ling, Jude Bolton, Matthew Richardson, Nick Riewoldt and Kevin Bartlett make up the All-Australian selection panel.

My only issue is how much half forward does Bont actually play ? Same with Pretracca this year. Both can play forward extremely well but unless I missed something they did play mainly midfield this year. You could argue Fritsch should have got one of the forward spots as a medium forward giev he kicked 47 goals. It seems to be the same all the time. Midfielders in the half forward spots.
Absolutely. No issue with midfielders being named on the hff. So long as they actually rotate through there at times.
As Stringer did all year. No other midfielder came within cooee of Stringer's 39 goals.

Second angle didn't look as bad, but will still be in trouble.

That said, love that he went to fly the flag for Merrett.
Yes, loved that. In the regular season, not so much depending on the circumstance, but at that stage of the game/season today, yes. That was a different Essendon beast than the team of recent years. Long may that attitude and aggression remain.

Sundays game showed why you do not actually name Stringer as a midfielder. With very few center bounces in a low scoring game his impact in the middle was minimal with just one clearance . He is primarily a forward who takes the center bounces. He is good at it and it works for us but you still have to have that 5th or 6th midfielder in the rotation to start at half forward and move into the midfield as Jake is pushing forward.

If he doubles down on his newfound commitment to physical fitness he can reach another level.....he can be as damaging a player as exists in the comp.

Hoping to see photos on Twitter of Jake churning out solo 400m reps at the Hangar sometime soon!
