Are you serious.  I always thought that voting was subjective based on opinions, personal assesments and favourites (see my vote for Spargo).  If it was objective all the votes would be the same and there would be no point in this thread.

To suggest that DLs are wrong in there voting leads to bullying and intimidation.  There are an infinite number of other threads on DL where you can do that.

Ok fair enough, I'll tone it down but there's more of that going on in this week's thread other than me just so you know.

I just get a bit frustrated when a player seems to be consistent across votes here than no-one else externally has even mentioned.

I don't think any other specialist forwards have appeared in the votes.  But anyway, it's all in the eye of the beholder.  The only votes that matter at all are the coaches.  It's nice we all get a chance to have an opinion on Demonland and sometimes it's similar to the coaching panel, or the media and often it isn't. 

Yeah that's right, everyone makes a contribution.

Gawn wasn't listed in the best in the Age last week either and got 8 coaches votes.  I wouldn't pay too much attention to the Ronny Lerner's (HS) and Courtney Walsh's (the Age) of the world.

So in other words, don't pay attention to credible external media experts and only pay attention to biased armchair fans who mostly haven't played a game of football in their life?

Good to see Hunt get some recognition. Maligned player - he was very good last night. Think he sometimes gets mixed up with Langdon (confuses the commentators too). Spargo I thought was really good, all night. Petty - superb. May too. Best full back we've had since Tassie Johnson, and we've had several excellent ones, including when we have been lousy.

In what way is 27 possessions with 13 contested a shocker? Pretty bewildered that 4 people liked this comment too.

Correct. Put in all night, in a lot of traffic. Missed a couple of very easy ones. Had he got those, he's in the best few.

or pay attention to the coaches votes.  Everyone has an opinion.  This is a forum to express it.

3 Brayshaw

Apologies to Langdon who got a lot of the ball but I thought was fairly sloppy. Loved Sparrow's game too, and a number of others played OK.

I know Trac is Trac, but seriously Oliver is just as good at what he does. His hands are the best in the game. 

And everyone lauds CPS strength.

But Oliver is freakish how he can be held by two players and still get a kick away.

They are the dynamic duo.

Questioning my inclusion of him in my votes is more than reasonable it's the 'shocker' part I'm surprised by. Anyone who understands the way we play our game would see he played a huge part in our structure when he didn't have the footy. We locked the ball in our forward 50 for a lot of the game. We had to because we were so fricken awful with kicking accuracy. On many occasions when the Tigers could have rebounded we worked relentlessly to put pressure on their defensive ball carriers.

In games where you have essentially 'kicked yourself out of it' the only real way to win is with sheer hard work and pressure. ANB had 24 pressure acts, 24! Along with 27 possessions if that's seen as a shocker then I'd say we have a pretty darn good football team then!

I love his pressure and his work rate was strong, he never stopped trying, and didn’t drop his head, but I wasn’t voting for him because hie was a shadow of his recent self with decision making and DE. I wasn’t arguing shocker, my point is his disposal was off his new normal standard. Be clear on this I love ANB.

I hear you Dee fence and it's a fair point. Certainly wasn't suggesting you thought otherwise if it came across like that.

coaches went:

Oliver 10 (5/5)

Langdon 7 (4/3)

Vlastuin 6 (4/2)

May 3 (3/-)

Petracca 2 (2/-)

Brayshaw 1 (1/-)

Sparrow 1 (1/-)

Goodwin definitely voted for Petracca if you listen to his post game presser.  Which means he thought Vlastuin was second best and therefore Hardwick gave May 3.  So well done to the very few Demonlanders who had Tracc in the votes!!

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
