Adelaide superstar Patrick Dangerfield could pick up a swag of awards on his way out of the club – starting with Tuesday night’s All Australian presentation.
Dangerfield will make his first public appearance since the Crows bowed out of the finals, and since a Fairfax report claimed the 25-year-old has already told the club of his intent to make his long-mooted switch to Geelong.
A stellar season has him in line for All Australian honours and Adelaide’s best and fairest, while bookmakers have him third favourite for the Brownlow Medal behind Fremantle’s Nat Fyfe and West Coast’s Matt Priddis.
Both player and club remain tight-lipped about his future.
Dangerfield is in line for his third All Australian nod and was named in the initial 40-player squad that the final 22 All Australians will come from, along with teammates Taylor Walker, Rory Laird and Eddie Betts.
Reigning premiers Hawthorn supplied the most players to that initial squad with six while Fremantle, West Coast and the Western Bulldogs all had five players nominated.
A total of 21 players were nominated for a potential first-ever All Australian selection while Collingwood pair Scott Pendlebury and Dane Swan are each in line for their sixth selection to the prestigious team.
The All Australian selection panel is made up of AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan (chairman), Kevin Bartlett, Luke Darcy, Mark Evans, Danny Frawley, Glen Jakovich, Cameron Ling, Matthew Richardson and Warren Tredrea.
