We probably low balled him because he isn't very good 

But good enough to play in the majority of games?? Just quietly we would NOT have won vs Carltank without him!

4 other Clubs appear to  have a different  and presumably offered more.

There is nothing in what  I posted that suggest he's an A grader.

But he did play more games than Weideman got in a dysfunctional forward line so I can only assume it's budget vs current contract.

Did you not understand my post?

Just watched the couple of videos uploaded by the club from last night and the first thought is that Kate Roffey is all class. Consider how she spoke about Dogga moving back west in comparison to how Adelaide spat the dummy at Rick Lever.

You make tough decisions early so you don’t end up doing a Collingwood who will be paying around $700K next for players not on their list

its clear we don’t see Hunt as part of our plans and the coaches expect Bowie etc to replace him next year 

Yeah clearly ,but it still makes an interesting reflection on the list  "carnage " if they were trying to fit Jackson in.

I guess we don't know what Hunt considers too low or whether he was also  "encouraged " verbally to explore his options.

Bowey is a superior talent, can even shift Brayshaw to the backline now

Hunt would be 4th or 5th choice next year

Petty played only 18 of the possible 24 games. 

On an 'average votes/game' basis he came 7th rather than 15th on a 'total votes' basis.

Demonland voters have once again picked the same winner as the Club - and in this instance have the same Top 6, albeit slightly different order.

Exactly. Got 1st and 2nd and 4th correct.  Though the Oliver-Petracca quinella was paying $1.02!!!

Top 5 comprised of a Pick 2, 3 and 4.
F/S that would have gone top 5 and a bloke traded in with pick 6

Would be nice to have a pick at the pointy end again this year

This is the ranking based on average per game played.

image.png.9207cbd104dc8f1919d0b9bd15819297.png

Our voting system scores a player our of 40 for each game. 

 

So only the top 5 got a pass ie >20 votes per game.

I doubt our coaches would be shy about giving a player 0 in a game which clearly would bring the average down.  Looks like a lot of 0 to 2 votes during the year.

The biggest surprise for me is Lever.  He didn't have a good year but I didn't think it was that bad, especially as he had to shore up the defence in May's absence, Petty out injured and he himself played many games injured.

I watched some of the stream but it dragged on too long. I was also disappointed that they didn't show more of the audience as I was hoping to see @WalkingCivilWar.

I reckon she would have been easily identifiable . 

A deranged looking ranga with an autograph book the size of The Pink Pages and blinding  all with the constant flash of irritating  selfies.

Makes the decisions to leave out Jordon and Bowey at the pointy end of the year extremely interesting

I saw Sparrow won the coaches award, no doubt that will set to guess wagging around here 🤣

That’s a very good point. Shows you where the value really is.

I think Jordon injured his foot or ankle. 

Bowey is the really interesting one.  My theory is that in the Geelong game they rag dolled him and was dropped so that he could bulk up.  He was probably tired having played about 20 games straight in his 'first' year into the second.  Will come back bigger and stronger next year.

That's really great thanks Luci, do you have the data for Hibbo and Rivers?

You obviously haven't met WCW. She's charming.

Thank you.

The club has published the votes for only the top 20 so I can't calculate the average.

Maybe someone who was there saw the total vote figures for them and post them here.

    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.

    DAISY DOES IT by Whispering Jack

    The Gold Coast has been treated to a feast of womens football over the past couple of days. On Friday night, the Brisbane Lions claimed flag favouritism when they knocked the Adelaide Crows off their second placed perch at Metricon Stadium. Then on Saturday evening at the same venue, the Melbourne Demons consolidated their hold on that vacated second spot when, they ruthlessly smashed a finals contender in consecutive weeks, this time the home town favourites, the Suns.    It was a case
