Adelaide produced a few special wins during its 2021 campaign.

A narrow victory against Melbourne with a last-gasp goal and a come-from-behind triumph against St Kilda in Cairns were just a few.

But for experienced wingman Paul Seedsman, there’s one other that will go down as his favourite memory of this past season.

“Some of those wins were unbelievable,” Seedsman said.

“But I still remember the quarter-time and half-time against Geelong, the fans at Adelaide Oval and the standing ovation.

“Out of all the games that I’ve played, that’s probably the moment I remember from a crowd perspective, just the goosebumps and going, ‘Geez, this is unbelievable’.

“Then a similar sort of feeling after we got the win against an undefeated Melbourne, it just does so much for this young group to latch onto those feelings.

“Hopefully we can get a few more of them.”

Seedsman, who finished third in the Club Champion count, produced a standout season after playing 22 games and averaging 26.1 disposals.

The 29-year-old credits mindfulness training for helping him perform as well as he did.

“I have a (mind) coach in Melbourne who, particularly in the early days, was very structured and I spoke with him on Zoom once a week,” Seedsman said.

“It’s been great for me in developing mental resilience and even just belief, an unwavering belief that no matter what happens, you control where you want to go and what’s happening.

“It’s just a lot of affirmations, goal setting, not letting emotions get the better of you. 

“It was actually my Mum who suggested it to me three years ago, I finally listened to her after where I was last year, it wasn’t where I wanted to be, out of the side for the last four or five games.

“I wasn’t happy with that, it didn’t sit well with me and I knew I had to change something because it wasn’t how I wanted my career to finish, I felt I had so much more to give.”

Seedsman was confident the Crows would be able to take their game to another level in 2022 and be more consistent as the younger players notched another year on their belts.

“We didn’t have as many wins as we would’ve liked but I think some of the football we’ve been able to play over the year has been really positive,” Seedsman said.

“The young boys get another pre-season, they get fitter, they get stronger, their bodies become more resilient and so to with their mind.

“They learn the structures, they become more composed in game, in training and they start to see the game better.

“There’s a lot to look forward to and a lot of the list, they are so young, so another six months to put the hard work in, you’ll see a big turn around.”
