Was laughing at the Daicos missed votes earlier but I’m [censored] now. Tracc should have got atleast 2 vs North

North game 2 and Sydney game 2 also.

Robbed.

They sure had that medal ready to go quickly in Brisbane.

This award has lost its magic, but well done to Tracc and Vines. 

AFL football has lost its magic.

Does anyone expect a fair count? The umps cannot get the basic decisions right, how can they adjudge the best player.. 

I hate the Brownlow these days. The wrong midfielder won it, again. Change the voting system. Why don't the clubs all make it an issue and get it done?

Far out! That was frustrating!

Jack Viney 3 votes against Sydney was a mystery.

Angus Brayshaw 3 votes against North Melbourne was also bizarre.

But oh well.

Lachie Neale from the Lions is a well deserved winner.

Pretty confident Christian Petracca will win the Demons' Best & Fairest this year though at least.

Gus had 37 versus North. He deserved 3. But Hunter and Fritta over Trac against North and Sydney is a joke.

Trac fkking robbed in the last 7 rounds 

the umps count touches not influence. they shouldn’t be allowed to check stats. If we had a fwd line and Trac played 70% midfield he’d have 34 votes easy

Yes agreed, Trac's vote-getting drop-off coincided with him spending more time forward with the petty and melky injuries. Pretty rough because he showed extraordinary power in several games to turn things our way.

So many cheap votes for Neale and so many votes robbed from Trac 

Bont robbed. That 3 for Neale for a 20 possie game, when Kelly 42 and Coniglio 38 no votes is pathetic.

2nd year in a row that 2 Dees the highest 2 from any club.

Have said it for some time, the Brownlow is increasingly becoming a mediocre award to win. It no longer goes to the ‘best’ player in the league anymore.

Melbourne players aside, the Bont had a much better year than Neale, as did Butters, Gulden and even Daicos.

May as well call it the best midfielders award too btw.

Until they stop the umps picking the votes this will continue to decline into an irrelevant award

anyone honestly think they can be aware of who is playing well when there are 100 new rules and tweaks and coping abuse over the fence. and now with 4 you only see half the ground

Agree.

Hunter.  Lots of nothing possessions.

Fritsch played 5 minutes in the last quarter.  

Trac carried us over the line in BOTH games

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
