Cool! We did have some very strong individual performers this year. Which makes it all the more confounding that as a group we couldn't perform better.

I thought Weiters was definitely there before he got hurt, but hasn't been up to the same level at all since returning. Doc possibly stiff.

Great to see some Blues being recognised!

It really does highlight the steep drop off on our list from top 5-8 to the bottom 6.
We basically have 8-10 AA calibre players and then a bottom 12 each week. Those bottom 12 are prone to have droppable games, not bad games but droppable games. Gap between best and worst is easy to wide (and their best isn't that good)

Need 5-6 to step up to becoming good and consistent AFL players

Thoroughly deserved. Doc unlucky.

Interested to see how many make the final side. Guessing 3 of them, Curnow the only one I'm willing to put money on.
Yeah Curnow is a certainty, Saad and Cripps a decent chance, Walsh a little chance and weitering no chance imo

Will Cripps first 2 months be so dominate he gets picked, form after then was a bit up and down, last few weeks may save him

Saad was consistent and went to another level the 2nd half of the year, overtook doc and probably came down to either of them for a spot in the squad

Walsh got a lot of the ball but impact was down. More an accumulator this year, will his numbers seduce the selectors?

I'm surprised weitering was in the squad but it has been an average year for key backmen

Weitering was only included because they robbed him of two all australian jackets already, so he got a pitty squad invitation but won't make the final team due to games missed through injury and a dropoff late in the season.

Docherty very stiff to miss, I'd have him in ahead of Weitering and Walsh.

Yes I know stats aren't everything but Docherty does all the hard/team stuff too and still can't get in the 40 man squad yet Wilkie,Cox,Fritsch,Weitering(maybe a nod after being forgotten when he actually deserved AA last 2 years) get in the squad and no Nick Daicos too his first season has been unbelievable.

Cripps and Curnow should be locks
Saad should be in the side after an excellent year
Walsh may make the side but I don't think would make mine personally
and Weitering looked like a lock before the injury and after he has returned has been pretty below par, such that I wouldn't expect him to make it.

There are some definite participation awards going on in that 44 squad. How Daicos or even Docherty don’t get in ahead of some of that lot is absolutely mind boggling. Daicos would be on a lot of people’s first 22.

Phenomenal debut season, not AA worthy. Had a six week stretch where he was brilliant (averaging 32 disposals). Outside of that, very solid but not AA calibre.

Just shows the talent we have. That list doesn’t include the likes of Hewett Cerra Doc and McKay.

We will get there eventually as the talent is undeniable
