I didn’t even think of Kennedy. Probably cos he only played 11 games.- it's not that much of a goal between Buddy in first place & Kennedy in 2nd place:

The 0.08 goals per game difference is just ahead of the 0.07 lead for combined goals & goal assists that Buddy has over Hawkins: 4.17 vs 4.1 - so if Buddy is only narrowly beating Hawkins he is also only narrowly ahead of Kennedy.
We could end up with a situation similar to the 2012 AA team where Riewoldt won the Coleman with 65 goals ahead of Pav & Hawkins (62 goals), and Buddy (59 goals), but it was Buddy & Hawkins selected for the AA team
Bartlett, Frawley and Richardson are on the all Australian selection committee. There is no way Riewoldt misses full forward. But the two best key forwards this season have been Franklin and Hawkins. If they only pick two then Riewoldt should miss out.
