"Macrae didn't poll in the Grand Final" says it all.

Surely the simple solution is that all players get their three best games counted.

Done, issue over. Still fair to the four-game players without giving any ridiculous advantage.

I'm sure he'll treasure that award.

Straight to the pool room.

CP5-couldn't give a stuff.

It could be a meaningful award but it needs to be more than just stats or subjective opinion. Then the best player would be clearly displayed. They need to sort this out: for the sake of Gary Ayres who must cringe at its irrelevance, but also because it should genuinely be a prestigious award. Finals showcase the best of our game.

Who gave Caleb Daniel 3 votes, Goody or Bevo? Goody feeling a bit generous? Or Bevo taking the [censored] with favouring his own players?

That would be Bevo. Bontempelli 1 vote I can understand, but Daniel 3rd best on ground?  🤦‍♀️

Honestly who cares. MaCrae can have the GA Medal. Trac will just have to be content with a Premiership and Norm Smith Medal. No doubt Christian is shattered 😄

That’s not the point.
We all know Tracc wouldn’t  give a rat’s, but it is a discussion of a totally flawed AFL award.

Daniel had a lot of the ball, a lot of intercepts and a lot of turnovers. I felt like we were happy for him to be the one we let of the leash. I think we put a lot of work into a bunch of Dogs players, including Weightman, Liberatore, McCrae and Bailey Smith who were all kept much quieter than usual. Assuming we didn't put work into him, then I'm not sure that Goodwin could have him 3rd best on ground (because he did what he thought he would, and would probably rate our defensive efforts to stop key players a bit higher), so I think it has to be Bevo who gave him the votes

Treloar is the other one we allowed to run around a bit.

That leaves us in the exact same situation though doesn’t it? Macrae would have had the advantage of extra game, effectively being able to discard his worst game, which was the GF.

I personally would have had Bailey Smith ahead of him across the first 3 finals anyway. Macrae doesn’t excite me much at all.

    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.
