MUCH has been made of Angus Brayshaw’s lack of game time to start the season, but the man himself isn’t concerned.

Brayshaw spent just 67 percent of the match on the field in Round 4, but as he explained on Episode 1 of The Talking Points, with the reduced quarters in 2020, these things will happen.

“There’s a lot of hype about that but don’t read too much into it, is what I would suggest,” Brayshaw said.

“It’s a shorter game time so if the ball’s on the other side of the ground, then you get five minutes [on the bench] in a 25-minute quarter versus five minutes in a 35-minute quarter.

“That’s just the way it is.

“It’ll be someone else next week and we won’t be talking about it.”

The Demons midfielder made the most of his opportunities against Geelong, with 15 disposals, five tackles, three inside 50’s, three clearances and two of his side’s six goals.

Brayshaw’s efforts were so impressive he received seven votes in the AFLCA Champion Player of the Year Award, dismissing any rumours that he’s out of favour in the red and blue.

“There’s a lot of people trying to read a lot into a lot of different things,” Brayshaw said.

“I would urge everyone to just wait and see what happens next week, then make a judgement maybe.”

Watch below as Brayshaw delves into all the hot topics of the week including hubs, inside 50s and non-contact sessions.
