#21 Dyson "Good Onya Guys" Heppell


#4586

Missed out on the AA squad.

once again proving the selectors have NFI. the bias on that panel is atrocious.


#4587

As opposed to the bias on this thread?

Seriously he is nowhere near AA m8


#4588

Saad’s absence is the biggest injustice


#4589

bullsh*t. hes a farking workhorse and is criminally underrated by bombers and opposition supporters alike


#4590

righto


#4591

His performances post the Caaarlton game would warrant serious consideration, but taken over the entire season, his performances do not.


#4592

If that is the criteria then Dangerfield and Martin are lucky to be in the squad, and probably 10 others.

Seems to me that AA is mostly about previous years than the current one.


#4593

Fair point, l am only talking about Heppell.


#4594

I think your are correct about Hepps.

I actually question how the whole AA team is decided. It seems a given that the Best forward for the year wins the John Colman Medal and Jack gets the key forward role, but the best small pressure forward for the year is Walla but he is not even considered. They will probably throw Brown and Franklin into th eTeam which is a nonsense.


#4595

The question is, would Heppell give a ■■■■?
Captain of an AA team in a premiership year would be his only AA satisfaction from here on out.
He had a pretty good year, best and fairest and Brownlow votes will show that.


#4596

Tell me with a straight face that Cotchin, Edwards and Lambert had a better season than him…

Heppell is top 10 in AFLCA votes. And the only top 10 player not in the AA squad.


#4597

Exactly. It’s a ■■■■■■■ disgrace


#4598

I also think Heppell is very stiff not to make the AA squad.


#4599

If it is to a contest.

How many 40+ metre kicks do you see in a game that aren’t to a contest or a switch in defense?


#4600

Lambert and Edwards 100% had better seasons.
My face is straight.


#4602

Lambert had

Less kicks
Less possessions
Less clearances
Less contested possessions
Less tackles
Less one percenters
Less metres gained
Less effective disposals
Less rebounds (oh but Lambert is a great runner)
Less coaches association votes
Less attention from opposition players
Less leadership requirements
Less intercepts

But yeah. He had a better year??? How a role player like Lambert gets in ahead of Coniglio and Heppell is diabolical.

Can’t even be bothered with Edwards. Suspect it reads even more in Heppells favour.


#4603

why are you comparing hepp to two small forwards ■■■ midfielders? in any case, edwards and lambert have had stellar seasons.

Cotchin I’m not so sure about. It’d be 50/50 either way with that one.


#4604

A contest with equal or better numbers to be precise


#4605

This has been Cotchins worst season since 2010. Absolute [email protected] over him the last 2 years. He has been very ordinary.

As for comparing to the others. You are probably right. But I’m just staggered how farken ridiculous the selections are.


#4606

Im not entirely sure why people get their knickers in a knot over it tbh. Its legit just a media favourite award that really means sfa.
