Some weird as **** calls. Lever, Selwood, Scully really shouldn't be there, and there's plenty of other debatable calls too.

Oliver robbed. Fantasia's unlucky to not be in the 40 at least, and if they could find room for Jonas, why not Grundy?
Astbury has had an outstanding year. So too Grimes.

If they picked alot of players that have missed games then why not Beams? Not including his injured game he has kicked 20 goals and averaged 28.4 from 18 games with arguably half a dozen games where he was best on. All in a team that won the wooden spoon.

it would be strange to have two players being selected from the team that finished 18th

No Mitch Duncan or Clayton Oliver is a mistake surely??!

Duncan has had a brilliant year and probably been Geelongs most consistent midfielder. Averaged 29 disposals and right near the top of the league for score involvements. He was better than Selwood and played all games, unlike Selwood who missed a decent chunk but has somehow made it in. Has been a key reason why the Cats finished top 4 and definitely deserves to be in the squad.

Oliver has been been phenomenal for a second year player. Averaged 30 touches, 5th in the league for disposals, 2nd in the league for contested possessions, 1st in the league for handballs, 4th in the league for tackles, 5th in the league for clearances. Those stats put him ahead of some other midfielders clearly selected off reputation and not output.

Yep Carlton ones are fine as well, thought Gibbs or Murphy might be a smoky but no 16th side is going to have 3 in the squad. Think they gave way to many Adelaide players a spot. I get they are the top side but think some more people where more deserving then Tom Lynch and Lever
I hate that the team has to perform for a player to get credit, Gibbs and Fyfe are deserving of the squad at least.

Dees selections are most perplexing.

Would've thought Oliver comfortably over Treloar or Scully and Fantasia or Papley comfortably over Garlett.
