Thought he was immense on Friday. Read the play wonderfully well. Was strong in the upper body and didn’t waste a pill. Still gave away that ridiculous free kick. Ultra smart footballer who enjoys a brain fade.
Port and Geelong players actively play for free kicks.That free kick was a classic case of go to tackle the opposition player, everyone is moving around, and the opposition player goes down a little and you get him high.
It was close to goal so the defender must go for the tackle, but everything is moving so fast it is easy to get them high.
You could see the look on Vlastuin's face that he knew he had just managed to get him high, took his arm away quick too but just couldn't avoid it.
I don't think it was ridiculous at all, just one of those things that happens in the heat of the moment. Don't blame Vlastuin at all.
It looked like a clear free "live", on replay it was not so clear cut, but he did grab him on the shoulder, so the right decision was paid.Vlastuin grabbed him around the shoulder and lladhams threw himself back. he flopped. port were flopping all night. but only tiger players stage.
AA is for the best players in the H&A season. Guys like DBJ play many good games, against weaker opposition, when pressure is less, when they can run loose and get plenty of the ball.The All Home and Away Supercoach Team. Even less meaningful than the Brownlow.

A guy like Vlastuin plays some great games during the H&A, but also games where he just does what he needs to do.
DBJ probably had the better H&A season, but it is clear who any football person would prefer in their team come finals time.
Yeh, its criminal that 2 guys who cannot defend to save themselves were chosen in front of our star. Anyone on the AA selection committee who voted for BJ should be stood down from future selection duties.No AA defender should ever get brushed aside like a 10 pound weakling. Dusty or no Dusty.
