Not once did the shrug break the tackle. In every instance the shrug brought his opponents arms up and around his neck.
If its a stupid plan but it works, it's not a stupid plan, but hey.
I dont think it defines him at all, and he was a gun player (among the very best), but dont deny it was part of his game. That's laughable.

Footy is the kind of sport where you really need a full pre-season to front up every year.Champion player and even better bloke by all accounts, amazing career.
I see lots of similarities between Selwood and Tom Brady and wonder if Geelong would keep a list spot open if Selwood had a change of heart in months to come and decided to come back for one more season?
Selwood was the perfect on-field leader. He led by examplebartel? hawkins? scarlett? Harley? Ling?
i dont now how you differentiate one being better then the others?

Selwoods been fantastic. A champion of the game. But he wasnt perfect.Selwood was the perfect on-field leader. He led by example
However, I regard Tom Harley as our most significant captain as he saw the great cultural change within Geelong that saw the mentality of the joint change from a casual semi-rural club to a professional outfit. Harls wasn't our best player, but I loved how he played and his calm demeanour coupled with his intelligence made him a really good all-round leader
Selwood has continued to maintain those high standards, very much to his credit. Don't underestimate how hard Selwood has worked to continue the high-standards at the club
I am also mindful that the captain isn't solely responsible for the above, but given their status within a club, still very important
Geelong have also had very good CEOs and Presidents for a long time. The joint has been as stable as you could hope. No coups, no board spills, and no disgruntlement
Bartel, Hawkins and Scarlett have not been formal leaders. Hawkins has taken a long time to reach this point. He has aged like a fine wine (sorry for that cliché), while Scarlett was reportedly a w***er and was directly told to change his ways
Selwood has been a positive presence throughout his entire career. His professionalism through his 16 year career cannot be faulted.
Mate, there will always be knockers. Disagree by all means, but you need the nongs to show the chasm between a good post and a poor oneDisgraceful posting in a farewell thread. Can a mod please delete these posts they dont belong here?
and not to mention plain wrong. go look at his awesome goal in the 2009 grand final where he shrugs his shoulders, breaks the tackle, runs 10 yards and boots the goal.
