Superlative!

I'm so proud of his efforts. He decided he wanted to be a footballer and has not taken a backward step.

Congratulations Colin.

Thoroughly deserved. Hasn't got a hope in hell in winning it because he's the wrong type of player, but in my opinion has been an absolute revelation this year.

Congratulations Colin.

He has just as good a chance as any of the nominees. What other players nominated plays on the best forwards week in week out and holds his own??

I think he can win it, that my opinion.

I hope you're right, but I reckon the markers will look more favourably on the attacking midfielders like Palmer. It's no criticism of Colin, and I reckon he's as important to our side as any of those other guys are to theirs. Just the way I think it'll pan out.

Palmer better watch out. Wona is on his tail. If he kicks forty goals by the end of the year he's in with a big chance. He could even be our leading goalkicker by the end of the year. Who would have thunk it?

i agree with what you are saying - he has been doing a fantastic job, and possibly he is doing the hardest job out of anyone who has been nominated but a couple of things go against him.

firstly defenders do not get looked on favourably in these sort of awards. generally it is a flashy midfielder or a star forward. almost always it is someone who stands out with blonde hair or big muscles lol something that makes them different. the exceptions to these are those who stand out and are visible. rivers won, but he was seen drifting in front of opposition players, making big spoils, taking big marks. col goes quietly about his job, and gets it done solidly, no frills.

also, it is almost always associated with where the players were rated before the season also. kruezer, palmer and co will all probably feature highly while not all of them deserve too, it is because they are the big recognizable names.

Freo, Melbourne and Hawks now have 2

Hopefully Morton can step up in the next few weeks, who else qualifies/has the talent to get a nod?

Has a team ever had two exciting young Colins playing at either end of the ground?

The Col Express is full steam ahead.

Way overdue. Should have got it the week he beat Franklin.

Well done Col, and may you continue to serve humble pie to all those who put a line through your career after a grand total of 4 matches :rolleyes:

To give credit where it is due, Fan has been a big supporter of CG from the beginning. He said he would need time to adjust as he had not played a lot of junior footy.

I quickly added up all of the clubs Rising stor nomination since 2004:

Melbourne 11 (included in there is Moloney who got the nod while playing for geelong)

Brisbane 10

West Coast 9

Collingwood 8

Port Adelaide 8

Richmond 8

Carlton 7

Geelong 6

Hawthorn 6

Western Bulldogs 6

Essendon 5

North Melbourne 4

Fremantle 3

Sydney 2

Adelaide 2

StKilda 1

Now this either means that we have an exciting future ahead OR the rising star nomination means didley.

Either way you would rather have more of them than less and we're on the top of the ladder!!!

What about that defender called Jared Rivers?

Looking at that its tough to discern a serious trend. ie we have Brisbane and Collingwood up there (of the teams that are doing well at present) but then we also have ourselves, Richmond and Port, who are all struggling (obviously the optimal number of rising star nominations is 6!). I'm going to have to go with rising star nominations meaning sod all at this stage. I can think of numerous players who have earned a nomination for one or two weeks good form, only to vanish from the face of the earth subsequently.

Likewise, looking back at the history of rising star WINNERS, at least half have been no more than journeyman players.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
