Nealy A clean sweep!

7 Clayton Oliver (MELB)
7 Steven May (MELB)
2 Jordan Dawson (ADEL)
2 Jake Lever (MELB)
1 Ed Langdon (MELB)
1 Angus Brayshaw (MELB)
 
A fairly similar coach vote for top 3 honours.   Interesting that 3 of our defenders got votes.  They deserve it - a record number of intercept marks.
 
Split
5/5 Petracca
4/3 Oliver and May
2/0 Dawson and Lever
1/0 Langdon and Brayshaw
 
Leader Board
 
Oliver now has a big lead.  Will be interested to see how many Brownlow votes he has after round 16.
Petracca equal third

Incredible season by Oliver thus far, and extraordinary to have Trac within a few votes of 2nd place. 2 players in top 4 this deep into the season is great to see.

Pfffft what would AFL coaches know about who played well?  According to opposition fans on Facebook he only gets 30 backwards handpasses a game and doesn't hurt the opposition.  They'd know more than the coaches wouldn't they?

Hopefully, the umpires are switched on and give Oliver the Brownlow votes he deserves.

I still find it baffling that footy fans rate/like players not from their team eg Cripps, Danger, Dusty, Bontempelli, Neale etc etc but don't rate or like Oliver.

Agreed. I was out for lunch yesterday with a couple of Carlton supporting mates, who were baffled by the level of my delight when asked about Clarry's 7 year deal.

Oliver likely to win b2b coaches awards is rare air. I think Ablett Jnr was the last player to do so.

Forget back to back, Ablett Jnr is the ONLY player to win more than one coaches award over the course of an entire career.

Clarry will be in rare company if he continues this form.

Out of curiosity, went and had a look at the complete list. Ablett Jr won it three times in consecutive years (2007-2009). Interestingly, Simon Goodwin won it in 2006.

To state the obvious, it's a list of very good players: https://aflcoaches.com.au/awards/the-aflca-champion-player-of-the-year-award

And whats even scarier is that he will probably clean up is kicking a bit more, goalkicking a bit more. And when he gets even more confidence and experience, he will exit stoppage and move to the right places even more. There is no question on his contested dominance. He is probably only 2nd to Diesel - but that was a different era arguably at the end of his career he may just be the GOAT. 

Trac is a bit more balanced in contested / uncontested footy, which is fine. You have to have different types of players in the middle. But even his clearance play, explosiveness and sheer power will go down in history. 

Add Viney and Gawn into that mix and we have a centre square line-up that is truly remarkable.

with clarry already on 83 points he's likely to break the points record, too

Another sensational year from Clarry.  I think we have Clarry polling Brownlow votes in at least 9 (maybe 11) of our 15 games so far.  Likely only issue is if he gets the 3,2,1.  I think C……Petracca will be the one to take votes off Clarry.  Guys like Brayshaw, Neale, Miller and Cripps won’t have another star taking votes.

I reckon Gawn has 4 x 3 vote games so far as well.  Port, Giants, Hawthorn and Swans.

There will be others taking votes...Walsh at Carlton for example poles well, not sure how Rowell is going this season at GC.

Neale will be the one though, a bit of an umpires pet.

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air. A Magpie win against the Demons wo

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
