    Well deserved. I was sitting in the table with his parents and they were in tears.

    In the Sun to day they have done a comparison with the leading key forwards and Jesse leads all but one stat. We are talking about a 23 year old future champion of the game and to ask for less than the absolute maximum in return is a joke. I trust the FD to get a good deal, but to those on here or in the media to suggest he is not absolute top trade price is another joke. I have warmed to May and KK would be handy for us, so lets see how we go next week. Mahoney and Co have shown themselves capable of getting deals done and our list is getting there. But back to the main point. Those talking Jesse down because of a flaw in his game, are not giving his positives due recognition. Jesse is a super talent and could rise to champion status if he puts in the effort and he has luck with injuries from now on so we need to extract maximum compo from the club he goes to, most likely the Dockers.

    A couple of more serious Max Gawn gems from last night: in a post season email to all his team mates he wrote: "you can't win a premiership in the off-season, but you sure as hell can lose one; and he adopted a "no excuses" approach to his 2018 pre-season, meaning that he left absolutely no stone unturned in his preparation for the season ahead. He urged all his team mates to do adopt the same approach to the up-coming pre season. Great footballer and great leader.

    That's not quite how I heard it. Nor all negative but those that are his mum will go after. He's not wrong though is he. Some of the stuff that is written about players on this site is way over the top. Some people struggle with the difference between reasonable critique and character assassination.

    Just left the afterparty . BOG contenders. T Mac. Gus . Lever. And Clarry. All players in good spirits levers dance moves are Mr bean like. Hogan amongst it . Jeffy was a bit of a lonely figure. Jones getting around to every group was great to see. Very interesting to see the different Clicks amongst the playing group. Of the coaching group Jade Rawlings was a much loved figure. Plapp , Plunket and Ben Matthews also getting lots of love from the players. Max engaging with everyone. Love this club

    Melky was there, finishing an admirable 7th. Absolutely rapt for James Harmes. A case study in application, dedication and self belief. 3rd B&F in a side that made a prelim is some effort for a guy that was in the fringe of selection 18 months ago. Brendan McCartney is just so good in that mentoring/development role. Best in the business. Next season it’s your turn Christian Petracca. A guy with that level of talent should be pushing for top 5 in the B&F every year from now on ... or he’s not trying hard enough.

    1st Gawn 657 votes, 25 games, 26.3 vpg 2nd Oliver 595, 25, 23.8 3rd Harmes 468, 25, 18.7 4th Jones 449, 25, 18 5th TMac 433, 20, 21.7 6th Brayshaw 429, 22, 19.5 7th Melksham 428, 23, 18.6 8th Salem 403, 24, 16.8 9th Jetta 383, 25, 15.3 10th Lewis 366, 24, 15.3 11th Hogan 365, 20, 18.3 1) It sounds obvious but playing lots of games is key to finishing high. 2) Gawn streets ahead per game, and Oliver and TMac similarly on their own ahead of the pack. 3) Of those listed above, Hogan is top 6 in votes per game. 4) Oscar (25, 346, 13.8) ANB (25, 322, 12.9), Petracca (24, 268, 11.1), Fritsch (23, 261, 11.3), Hibberd (21, 317, 15.1) the other players above 20 games not in the top 11. But not everyone can finish top 10, especially when 16 players play 20+ games. 5) Other notable vpg are: Viney (a massive 24.4 vpg), VDB (17.9), Frost (13.4), Hannan (12.1) and for good measure Spargo (11.6). 6) After 16 rounds Oscar had 223 votes (14.8 vpg) and Hibberd 199 (13.2 vpg). Given they were in the top 10 at round 16 with low votes per game it suggests the coaches gave higher votes per game towards the end of the season compared to the start of the season, dragging the average votes per game of the top 11 (and maybe the whole squad) up. 7) The very high votes per game of VDB and Viney correlates with the overall student increase in votes per game later in the season. Similarly Oliver's vpg is higher in the back half than front half which surprises me based on his performance.

    He was 1 vote behind Lewis in 11th, after missing the last few games. Churlish.

    https://mobile.twitter.com/MattBurgan/status/1046642832914636800 For those who didn't know (like me), Matt Burgan is finishing up his 8+ years at the Dees from tonight. I know he's copped a bit of stick from a few on here, but he's always come across as a guy that really loved the footy club. Thanks for everything Burgs.

    And yet he was amongst the best in the 2 finals we won. Funny how we only see what we want when our eyes are half closed.

    No he didn't. He made a joke of how his mum reads everything on social media and it makes for an interesting tuesday family dinner. He said watch out cause she'll hunt you all down, partic Demonland4276 It was clearly a joke

    For anyone wondering: Melbourne’s best and fairest votes were cast by four members of the club’s match committee. They gave players a score from zero to 10 for each game. I like this type of system better than the 3-2-1 as it rewards consistent performance not a select number of best on grounds. The only problem is the significant penalty associated with missing games, thus my votes per game analysis above.

    Happy he’s got one more crack, if nothing else for another 12 months of @Drunkn167‘s infectious enthusiasm!
