Everyone holds AA up as proof of how great a player is but in reality it's just 7 blokes opinion. If those blokes have favourites then they get captains calls.
If you got the main board together and you took everyone's AA teams you would have alot of different opinions. AA is just a product of the 7 blokes in charge at the time.
Selwood for instance was named AA last year and he didn't even come close to deserving it. Jetta is popular but we don't play enough marquee games. If we play more Friday night games next year then we will get more players.
