    Betts for Ballantyne
    Jacobs for Sandilands
    MacKenzie for Hooker/Rance
    Hawkins for Roughead/Riewoldt

    and you've got a team

    Parker is the other very unlucky one but no player for him to replace

    Not Western Australian enough. (or should I say Western, then we can include Minson)

    This post was more than likely SC based.
    If in doubt, assume it was.

    Ballantyne and Rance my main surprises/protests. Don't think they deserve it.

    Eric Mackenzie might be the best defender in the AFL but he is not in the best six defenders in the All-Australian. Alex Rance missed the start of the year, was pretty good in the middle and finished superbly. Maybe that was front of mind. Daniel Talia is a bit clingy with his opponent. Mackenzie should be in ahead of one of them, probably Talia. Sorry Daniel.

    So the best defender doesn't make AA

    Re: 2014 All Australian Team

    While I disagree with a few things (Jacobs vs Sandilands, EMac vs Rance, Priddis v Rocky) they always reward the teams in the top 4/8 and this is no different this year.

    Should be well known that it's the Top 8 AA team with a few standouts from bottom 8

    Can see the frustration though.

    Also don't buy into the Hawkins vs Riewoldt/Roughy issue, think they are all pretty close (similar to Parker/Pendles/Heppell etc)

    Re: 2014 All Australian Team

    They messed up when they only picked 3 small defenders so it always had to be Smith x2 and Malceski.

    McKenzie was my first picked defender so obviously disagree with him not making it, Rance would absolutely be the guy I dropped, I don't think he was better than McKenzie at any point this year and he missed a bunch of games.

    I'd have had Parker absolutely ahead of Boak and also ahead of Heppell personally but can't fault Heppell in the side. I don't get the Boak thing but I've said this before.

    Riewoldt not the worst choice, imo. Roughy was the 2nd best forward, imo. Hawkins was my personal 3rd but think it's much of a muchness.

    No problem with Balla, few others could have made it and think Harvey is by far the biggest miss in that position.

    Jacobs could be dirty.

    Re: 2014 All Australian Team

    I reckon jacobs & betts were more deserving than smith & Talia

    Totally get we don't deserve more than the 2 we got, but I'd have been happier and think fairer if the other way round.

    Ballantyne & Sandi out. And that's the problem, Freo needed representation
    TEX WALKER. that is all.

    1. Not a top 4 team, it's based on H+A, not finals, you guys were 6th.
    2. North probably an exception as I can't see a case being made for many players this year.

    North are an incredibly even team.

    I think Boomer should have probably made it though.

    Smith was obvious from the squad though in fairness. He basically had to be in the team when they only picked 3 small defenders in the entire squad (which still baffles me). It's almost like they decided on those 3 with 2 months to go and didn't even bother with a contingency plan at all for when both Smith's limped home.

    I actually think the problem is that an individual award is being based on team success far too much. The Crows absolutely deserved, imo, to have 3 AA with Betts being a 1/3 option (I think Betts and Ballantyne should both have been 30% options to Harvey's 40% if I was picking that spot). I mean I still think that Sloane and Danger not being in the squad is a bigger error than Betts or Jacobs not making the final team and I think Jacobs not making it was a pretty big error.
