BROWNLOW MEDAL COUNT 2016


McQueen

Recommended Posts

It was infuriating that the broadcast was full of so much padding that the important part of the night i.e. the reading of the votes was rushed to the point of being unintelligible. The count needs to start at 8 as well. And where the hell did they dig up that singer LLoyd from. Atrocious

Advertising ruins everything.

I was more interested in the fashions than the count and there was little time for either.

I love an elegant frock.

That montage over 'Amazing' was an embarrassing send off for the retiring players.

Why didn't they just do a slideshow and play 'Time of Your Life?

Final Melbourne votes.

Max Gawn: 16 Votes

Jack Viney: 14 Votes

Nathan Jones: 11 Votes

Jesse Hogan: 6 Votes

Dom Tyson: 6 Votes

Bernie Vince: 6 Votes

Jack Watts: 5 Votes

 

my tips from earlier....

Gawn  - 16    

Viney - 15     

Tyson - 11

Watts - 8

Hogan - 7

Jones - 6

exchange tyson and jones and I was pretty close.   although that means that I agree with the umps so probably should not brag

interesting to see Viney was not at the event.  Word is he will attend next year to collect his medal

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! 

You would hope that it wouldn't, because I thought that incident was well with 'the spirit if the game' ... But then, as you point out, they are umpires.

Do not forget that the umpires are a protected species that the AFL will not tolerate any bad word said against them.

Gawn's reaction after getting robbed every round is gold. Pretty much the only semi entertaining thing about the most boring thing on TV since a Ross Lyon press conference. 

Are you serious?!  Rossy's pressers are absolute gold.  Treats the journo's inane questions in the way they deserve and always comes up with comedy gems.  "Rebuild?  Nah, we re-stump, we re-wire, we re-plumb, but we don't rebuild"

Yeah his pressers are no where near the boredom of watching his game plans.

They must have looked at their watch after that because they raced through the last 7 rounds in about 15 minutes

I turned it on at 11pm just in time to hear the last round. Saved myself a few hours of rubbish.

Well he got 27 disposals and kicked 3 goals that day in a completely dominant performance and only got 2 votes... He got BOG votes a couple of times but his 2 best games he didnt get rewarded. Its more than just a midfielders award its a clearance award. You dont see wingman win it, it always seems to be a player dominating clearances. Umpires just pick the player that got the ball first

The biggest disgrace of the night was when they stopped showing highlights of all the games.

Dees won a game after the siren (gold coast) and they didnt even mention it. 

And yet it took 15 hours to do 15 rounds

Im not sure that was as bad as having a sheep in a suit bleating 'Amazing' to the retirees

The most overrated Brownlow victory of all time. If I read one more report that it may well be the most dominant season from a player 'I'll spew'. All it proves is that umpires now gush over number of possessions rather than what you do with the ball. No doubt that he's a great player but best season of all time... horseshite.

It's actually not a bad song.

They should've just played the album version though.

He literally destroyed his own song with that live performance.

The Brownlow medal count is organised by the same people who put on the Grand Final 'entertainment'. Enough said. :)

 

Was thinking the same thing.

When was the last time they actually had a decent show?

The NRL do it so much better.

cos that would've been reaaaaally lame.. they should've got the remaining members of the doors (probably only one left now, on keyboards) to play an extended version of 'the end'.

Gawn's game along with a couple of Danger's were probably three of the most dominant individual performances through the year. I don'think the AFL wanted anyone other than Danger to win the Brownlow, who incidentally didn't miss the sponsors at the end of it. Almost methodically professional was the spiel

One more titbit was how i would have had at least three other Swans, Hannebery, Franklin and Kennedy in front of Luke.. good paying quinella i suppose...muse, muse..

    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
