That was a brilliant speech by Dangerfield. He is a worthy winner and a very clever person to boot.

His take on family being the most important thing in life and how he had the Adelaide table and everyone in the room forgiving his move home was pretty moving. By the end I was going "Oh jeez, home you go Jesse, you get on back to your family, we'll be O.k."

After that speech I think we're in trouble.

Gaff 21 votes. I think Lachie Neale 20 votes. There are possible trades if he departs.

Such a deserved winner. Won the best and fairest at AFC last year when he would've known he was leaving and then the Brownlow in the following year with his spiritual Club. For me, absolute respect, and that was the most concise speech I have ever seen from a Brownlow medalist. Congratulations P Dangerfield.

Is it Gil reading out the votes?

It's like he knows something.

I found Gill's vote reading was atrocious and hugely disrespectful.  The way he raced through some games like they were meaningless was a massive insult to those teams and players awarded votes in those games.

They need to shorten it by half an hour bare minimum, the amount of ads is ridiculous. Instead of doing a highlights of every round they should just do it for 2 rounds at a time and I think it would almost be watchable then.

I fell asleep from about rounds 8 to 19, it was that interesting.  Missed Jimmy's award which was a little disappointing.

Max Gawn should try shaving his head or growing a beard to get noticed by the umpires a little more….

Maybe if he had grown a little taller......

Seriously great effort by Max, 5 more than Goldstein and I doubt a ruckman can win it for being just a ruckman, needs to kick a forward's bag as well.

A candid commentary on proceedings:  http://www.foxsports.com.au/news/afl-outsider-brett-geeves-on-brownlow-2016-red-carpet-and-dangerfields-victory/news-story/0316816b9091aa53377a0a5aef9fabef  I think we would all agree with this: 

"..And then there’s the Brownlow Medal. — the award for the best and fairest midfielder of the season...The biggest test in this theory was Round 20 when Melbourne beat Hawthorn and Max Gawn got the two votes with Jack Viney collecting the three.

I haven’t seen a more dominant ruck game than the masterclass Gawn put on that day...He was the reason Melbourne won that game and it’s disappointing that he was not rewarded with BOG honours. It only furthers the perception that this is an exclusive midfielders award'.

Seriously, I wonder if the backchat Max gave the umpire (forgotten which game) when he belted the ball away after a bad centre bounce and the umpire challenged him with 'what did you do that for' and Max said 'because its my job', cost him votes thereafter.  Wouldn't put it past them!

Oh, there is a delightful video in that article of kids interviewing some places...Lily interviewing Max is priceless!

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
