    Can finally end the debate that Merret has had a better year then the Bont.

    So judging by the red carpet photos Zach and Joe came as a couple, and he's also the youngest player in the AA side by about 6 months

    This should have been his second selection but I'm glad he was finally recognised.

    Tom Mitchell? Would have thought that's up for debate. Agree with the rest and there are a couple more to add in for consideration. Sloane, Ablett, Kennedy, Pendlebury, not saying they are all better, but it's not that straightforward. There'd be others I've missed.

    When I see pics of him last night, some of his facial expressions and his demeanor, he reminds me of a young bomber Thompson.... Does anything phase him at all?

    Shits on Mitchell, not even debatable. Far more damaging with the ball.

    We talking about the same Tom Mitchell that leads Zach in every "best player" poll by SEN, Age, Herald Sun, 3AW etc and will beat him on brownlow votes too?

    The same Tom Mitchell that had more clearances, contested possessions, score involvements, goals, marks, tackles? Only 2 games below 30 touches... only a total of 8 below 35.

    Dont fall for the same "not damaging enough" meme bigfooty tried to put on Merrett. Tom Mitchell was a gun this year. Only behind Danger and Dusty in 2017

    Joe said in his interview he brought his dad as his date.

    Zach looks the youngest by about 5 years, I'm not sure he's even started shaving yet

    Kid would be worth 2 first round picks if he were on the market imo.
