Hurn plays in probably the easiest position on the ground and rarely takes the oppositions best forwards.

I'm confused. Why do they think Hurn should be captain? It wouldn't even occur to most people that he was in the mix.

Given that there are at least 8 midfielders in the team I’m surprised that Dustin Martin has dropped down to at least number 9 and missed selection. I think most punters would have him in their first three or four players if picking a team from scratch.

He wasn't very good for the first quarter of the year.

Remember when people booed Chris Judd because the WA media gave him a Ross Glendenning Medal despite Josh Carr being better and Fremantle winning?

They're all booing Nat Fyfe today, just less succinctly.

and what's the deal with the blazers? Is it because everyone involved in the AFL now went to a posh school so they think it's the height of exclusivity to dress like you're a complete prat?

It's an Outrage!! Blah Blah Blah...
Anyone hear comments of "left out" backman from WC? Ever hear the word humility? Look it up!

Congrats Fyfe and Walters. Well done! Thoroughly deserved.

It's also an insult to Hurn. He should be honoured to be named vice captain but they've made it out like it's a slight on his character.

David King should go further than who's been picked as captain and go through the average Victorians who got a place picked by Victorian's.
Well done to all the Western Australians.
The all Australian jacket should be the headline for a wrong decision made.

Glen Jakovich isn't a Victorian, but good on him for conceding that Fyfe and Walters deserved the private school dress up thingos last night.

I just heard Fyfe talk with the ABC's Russ and Nadia - impressive diplomat, we're lucky to have the bloke at Freo.

I'm really pleased for Sonny and Nat getting their nods for the team. Looking at the selection panel you would hardly call it a Fremantle friendly group and on another note 6 out of 22 selected West Australians, 9 if you count Lachie Neale, Tim Kelly and Patrick Cripps is a great return for WA.

...and it isn't like the reigning premiership captain normally gets it anyway. Didn't Franklin get it last year and Rance before that? Don't recall the outcry then. All this carry on is an insult to Fyfe! (Not that I'd have minded if Hurn did get it to be honest)

It's a preposterous idea that being captain of the previous season's premiership team would carry any weight. It's irrelevant. You'd have to be damaged in the brain to think it was an argument worthy of making.

And yet Kingy went on and on about that fact being why Hurn should be Captain. I have to admit he should have got the nod last year ahead of Buddy but this is a completely new year. I'm wondering also if the manner in which Nat handled our late season demise and the sacking of Ross got him over the line as his words and leadership are a shining light on a way forward for the club.
