Happy for this to turn in to a "who do you think wins?" thread, but I see the date for this year's B&F count has been published.  It will take place this year on Tuesday 6 September at Crown.

https://secure.ticketdesq.com/book/index.cfm?fuseaction=main&TicketDesqID=1908&OrgID=1749&camefrom=EMCL_1216554_46712391

A couple of comments;

1. WTF is it on a Tuesday for?  I was planning on going for the first time ever, but can't justify spending the $250 on a "school" night, especially as I always aim to get my ticket price back via the premium beverage package.  (Although $250 worth of Crownies at Crown is only about 8 bottles).

2. As per the above link - how good is it that the club had to put the caveat "please note if the Melbourne Football Club make finals, an alternative date will be announced".  It's Round 21 and we are still a mathematical chance!

I too am hoping to make my virgin appearance down there this year, I will have to get some more leave and be kind to the boss too...
The boss at home as well as at work, considering I have been away from home for 3 months and get back on the 25th of August, the missus may not be too pleased with my plans to fly down to Melbourne (We live in sydney) for a couple nights.

1. J. Viney
2. M. Gawn
3. J. Watts
4. D. Tyson

Last three rounds will play a big factor in deciding the top five placings.

But for now...

1. Max Gawn

2. Jack Viney

3, Jack Watts

4. Nathan Jones

5. Dom Tyson

TMac, Vince, Kent. Hogan and Jetta (Not necessarily in that order) will round out the top 10.

Once again, can someone explain the current voting system? It could have an impact on people's predictions.

I came across this article a little while back and bookmarked it for this very occassion!  http://www.afl.com.au/news/2016-06-15/midyear-best-and-fairest?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=RSS+feed%3A+AFL+Latest+News

The method of voting for the Dees was described as: " The votes are cast by four members of Melbourne's match committee who give players a score from 0-10 for each game".

It is unclear whether that means the maximum score for each game is 40 (10 from each voter) or 10 (if the four voters agree on a score per player in toto).  It is technically possible to win the B&F and not ever be BOG. 

Max and Jack V have been the most consistent so they would be best placed to win.

Has to be Gawn, but I think Jones could go close. He has been very consistent and for the most part lifts when we need him to. The coaches clearly rate him very highly.

Viney missing a couple will hurt his chances.

Viney will probably vote in more games and Max did have a quiet few games mid-season. Ireckon Viney's consistency will get him over the line. 

After these two, it is a raffle between N Jones, Watts and Tyson.

Cheers LH - that's what I thought, but also not sure if this equates to a maximum score of 40 or some coaches' composite out of 10. Or if there's some mechanism to counter reasonable absence, such as discounting the bottom handful of individual vote scores? Could probably discern the former by digging up an old vote tally. Anyways, with Roos' focus on footballers playing their role, it could throw up a few surprises as graded to expectations rather than talent. He's made mention a few times after decent performances that Max has some things he needs to work on. Meanwhile, someone like Bugg could be doing exactly as asked week in week out.

Viney only missed one game. 

 

Considering he missed 6 (I think?) last year and only lost by 1 vote to Bernie who had a blinder of a season, I think Viney will win it easily. Been huge. 

 

1 Viney

2 Gawn

3 Jones

4 Watts

Considering where he's come from, the environment he has been in and his improvement he deserves it IMO. 

Nah Wattsy will win it next year when he goes to another level.

And Max would have had the max quite a few times.

From last years B&F the 4 voting members can vote on as many players as they like with a maximum of 10 votes per player. So, Yes the max a player can get is is 40 but remember in a game like last Saturday they may give 5 or 6 players votes whereas in a poor game say like Sydney in Sydney only 3 or 4 players get votes. So it is not the same number of players drawing votes each week which complicates things a little more.

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.
