The best forwards should be named forward and the left over mids named on the bench.It's just good to see the boys who busted their guts all year get credit where it is deserved. Butler & Steele both deserved to make it. Sure Martin & Dangerfield did too, but it should be about positions. Basically saying small forwards don't matter. I feel bad for Butts. He deserves an accolade like this, even if he doesn't care about it personally.
It’s slightly amusing they picked blokes who actually play wing (sometimes) only to then fill the forward line with midfielders againTo be honest I was expecting Ryan and Papley to sneak in in front of Butler, but to only see one get in has left me a little triggered.
Max Gawn on the bench is surely a gee up.
Should just cut the pretence. Pick 18 midfielders, 1 key defender, the Coleman medalist and 2 pure ruckmen. DoneHonestly, I think Nat Fyfe is pretty stiff. He's had a big year, especially when he's gone forward. Would have had him earmarked for the full forward spot. I know that Hawkins kicked a lot of goals this year, but he doesn't push up the ground much so I would have had him out of the team.
Gawn played 14/17 games, that’s plenty. He also averaged the most SC points out of ALL players. They usually pick 2 ruckmen and he was definitely in the top 2 in 2020.
