    Talia would have to feel a little hard done by to not even make the 40.

    Talia robbed. I suspected he may not make the final side because he isn't as fashionable as Rance or Hurley, but this is ridiculous. Just goes to show how media driven this 'team' has become.

    That's a disgrace. Don't include the best defender in the league after arguably his best year.

    But geez, how good has Garrick Ibbotson been this year though! /sarcasm
    This post was more than likely SC based.
    If in doubt, assume it was.

    Re: 2015 All Australian Squad

    Don't think that Gov should be getting the nod ahead of Talia. Gov missed 5 games with injury as well. Talia got the rough end of the pineapple there.

    Naitanui had a fine year, but it is debatable that his year was better than Sandi's.

    Not sure how Burgoyne got in there either. Great player and I'm happy to be told that he was AA-worthy this year, I just didn't expect to see his name there.

    Those 3 aside, it's difficult to argue with the other 37 picks.

    Re: 2015 All Australian Squad

    There is an absurd focus on "breakout" and winning teams in the actual squad.

    Guys like Sandilands, Jacobs, Talia, Ward, Heppell, Armitage and Treloar all basically missed out for being too consistently good or on bad teams.

    That said, it's not a bad squad. Ibbottson is a hell no for mine but other than that I can see the case for pretty much everyone. I'd personally have not had Hill either, I think his season has been a bit underwhelming but it's not an awful pick and it's not unfair to reward the best regular season team (though I'd have gone Sandi over both for certain). I think every other name I at least considered for my squad

    I probably would have had Gov in the squad, just. But not ahead of Talia.

    Re: 2015 All Australian Squad

    he had about 33 goals kicked on him by my count, which isn't that great.

    It'll be interesting to see the actual advanced stats for them all, I am sure someone will break it down.

    eye test suggests he should be in though

    just seen Ibbotson made it, lol!

    Gov, NN, Dahlhaus & Ibbotson very lucky for mine.

    Talia incredibly stiff/ridiculous. Sandi, Armitage, Ward & Heppell stiff.

    No Geelong players too. That era is well and truly over.

    McGovern is a fair pick, it's just the games missed that push him to the edge of the squad instead of firmly in it. Of course it helps that he has the moron media nickname that has the idiots at seven all excited and thus more hype.

    Dahlhaus been super consistent, not often in best few each game but rarely a bad one, probably rewarded for being in a good team, where Armitage, Ward just missed out.
