Some say public speaking is feared second only to dying.  Then daylight. Why should Clarry be any different to most.

Agree. Whilst Clarry called himself out for a s$&t speech, I thought it just added to the triumph our club has become. We value honesty and effort, and Clarry brought both to this being crowned the best this year and his effort in that speech. The fact he doesn't have the polish of a used car salesman just adds to his persona.

I just hope he signs a Trac sized demon for life deal soon.

Not that I have found.  We do have the top ten at end of season.  For those players:

Finals Points:
102 (PPG: 34.00)– Christian Petracca
094 (PPG: 31.33)– Clayton Oliver
091 (PPG: 30.33)– Max Gawn
086 (PPG: 28.67)– Christian Salem
078 (PPG: 26.00)– Jake Lever
078 (PPG: 26.00)– Alex Neal-Bullen
066 (PPG: 22.00)– Ed Langdon
060 (PPG: 20.00)– Kysaiah Pickett
046 (PPG: 23.00)– Steven May
034 (PPG: 11.34)– Tom McDonald

Umm…………..yes they are.

I agree DD at the end of Round 23 Clayton was high 500’s and his final count was high 600’s.!!

And players such as Fritsch, Brown, Bowey, Brayshaw, Jackson & Viney would have polled well during the finals

But apart from those 6 players there are others such as Rivers, Petty, Harmes, Sparrow, Hibberd & Spargo who all contributed during the finals.  No underperformers

I mistakenly had May at 2 games given his injury for some reason.  He played 50% game time vs Geelong.
046 (PPG: 15.34)– Steven May (3 games)
046 (PPG: 18.40)– Steven May (2.5 games)

---

Also, compared with their overall points per game, our end of home and away season top 5 changed their points per game in the finals by:

+8.65 Max Gawn
+8.24 Christian Petracca 
+7.79 Christian Salem
+4.53 Clayton Oliver
+1.71 Ed Langdon

I used to live 2 doors down from Clarko. When I came home from a very long lunch I saw him  in his driveway and asked him if he would prefer Cripps or Oliver. He said Cripps. I argued.

No wonder he got the sack.

He was great bloke though by the way.

I get the impression that he was winding you up.

You sound exactly like me, Mazer. I’m still saying this to anyone who’ll listen and even a few who won’t; well, tbh, to myself mostly. 😁 Melbourne… Premiers. Still feels a little incongruous.

Last Saturday Whispering Jack reminded us that next Saturday, xmas day, will mark three months since that absolutely glorious night in September. Three months!!! Not only has time flown, but this awesome post-premiership feeling hasn’t diminished one iota. Moreover, it hasn’t fully sunk in. Well, for me, anyways. I don’t know if it ever will. And you know what??? I don’t mind if it never does! 
WE ARE PREMIERS!!!!

❤️💙❤️💙
(Probs should’ve posted this in the “That Premiership Feeling” thread.)

Went to the museum today so see/handle the cup and the popular comment was that we are still basking & enjoying the premiership, but by god next year's season is nearly here.  Also was advised that the Demon shop is overflowing with stock which are still in boxes. Containers just arrived. Will go down during the week and spend. I have been waiting as I want my hard earned to go directly to the club.  Plenty of kids there today. Future is bright ladies & gents.

It’ll be March 16th before we know it! Of course, it’s exciting when you think that we get to open the season, and it being our first game in the defence of the title of PREMIERS. But at the same time I kinda don’t want it to come too soon. Still totally enjoying this post-premiership feeling. 🙂❤️💙

If the voting system is exponential and a 3-4 out of 10 is doing your job for the team then that sounds about right. Gus had a huge number of games where he really was ordinary at best, I'm thinking at least 6 or more where he wouldn't have hit the 3 mark. Then a lot of his games were probably around the 3-5. With a small handful of very good games scoring 6+ that counter out the games where he didn't play well.

I might be wrong here, but my assumption has always been that if a player didn't perform well enough in a certain game, then they wouldn't receive any votes from the coaches. Which would mean that the lowest amount of votes you could get in a game would be about 5/10 (and by extension, 5/40 if only one of 4 coaches gave them votes). I make this assumption based on two factors:

  • It seems weird that coaches would bother giving out scores of 1-4 to players for a game when the purpose of the award is to reward and acknowledge good efforts.
  • I recall a post-match press conference where an ex-coach (I think it was Roos) mentioned that it was the first game in which every player on the list got a vote in the B+F. It's possible that different coaching panels have interpreted the system differently, but you would assume it's been done the same way since this voting system has been around.

Article on the club's website with all the award winners says 4 coaches give players votes between 0-10 after every game

Yes, all 4 coaches voted him BOG. 

"Petracca was the only player on the list to play what the coaches deemed to be a ‘perfect game’ this season, earning 40 out of a possible 40 votes in the Grand Final after a Norm Smith Medal winning performance".

2021-best-and-fairest-all-the-winners

I couldn't find GF votes for other players. 

What we can guess is that Max (3 Finals average of 30 votes) scored very highly in the PF.  Oliver was consistent across all three finals and averaged 31 votes.  Petracca was in the same range (average for two finals of 31 votes)  and excelled in the GF with a 'perfect game'.  Not far behind was them Salem them (Finals average of 29) who probably polled highly in the GF.

How doesn't Oliver get 40/40 against the Crows?

Shame you weren't here when Deeluded was doing the rounds.

A lot more verbiage may have become understandable.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    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

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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.
