So Cunrow can hardly score a vote all season and Fritsch gets 2 votes for kicking 4?

...Well I guess consistency isn't exactly a strong suit of umpires is it.

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

My player ratings in those two.....

Vs Norf...

1.  Hunter > 6.05

2.  Tracc > 5.90

3.  Gus > 4.90

Vs Swans...

1.  Clarry > 4.57

2.  Viney > 4.50

3.  Tracc > 3.85 

(Fritsch ranked 6th > 3.55)

Not sure how Fritsch got votes ahead of Tracc, who had a huge influence on the outcome of the game in the second half.

Do not take the award off the umpires unless you really do want to see the voting rigged. Yes, it's sometimes a dog's breakfast but the alternative is ex - players easily compromised.

Seems Trac and Bont are destined to never win one despite being the best players every year and influencing games more than their peers. Both got robbed of clear votes tonight. 

Trac getting no votes in the final game was stupid. Getting 1 vote for his game against the Saints was stupid.

The umpires are stupid. I’m [censored] sick of them. The umpires have determined the outcome of games this year and legitimately shaped the entire finals series. It’s beyond pathetic and as someone who’s attending 100s of live games since the 1980s, I’m thiiiiiiis close to giving up on the sport because of their [censored] incompetence and the rules being so vague etc. Stuff this

Don't forget Clarry.

It's a travesty Neale has two and clarry none.

At least Clarry has two coaches'. Neale zero.

It's clear our club has no power within AFL house, house of crooks!

You can leave a comment here if you want to tell the AFL what you think of their medal. https://twitter.com/AFL/status/1706290651099488688

The issue is that you’re dealing with corporate psychopaths and narcissists at the top of the AFL. You could have a million comments or a million signatures on a petition and they would not care.

I will take that chance. There would be lots of ways of ensuring that the voting isn't rigged. The current system is a joke.

Did Goody moving him cost him the Brownlow lol

Brownlow Shmownlow

 

Also, I dropped a crystal vase today and it broke into a million pieces. Should I blame Goody for that, too?

Gulden was a certainty for 3 in the last, with 42 and 2 goals. Got 1 vote.

Bont was the unlucky one, with that crappy 3 to Neale, for a nothing game of 21 possies and no scores. How can Kelly 42 and Coniglio 38 in that Neale game get no votes?

We know who Maynard will accidentally target.

that’s how almost every award in the world works. a hell of a lot better that umpires who haven’t played at the top level or sometimes any level

Maybe GD. I'm just suggesting that an umpire likely has more credibility and moral fortitude than some narcissistic vanker from AFL House.

I actually feel a bit for Neale, and wouldn’t be surprised if this affects his GF game. During his speech, “it doesn’t sit well with me at all to be honest”. 

He is a lovely humble guy and I don’t think he deserves the wave of anger that he’s going to cop now. He didn’t do anything wrong and he didn’t ask for the votes or the win. 

He will now get caught up in this conversation that he’s an unworthy winner and frankly I think he agrees. Hope it’s not a distraction come Saturday. A Norm Smith will shut people up pretty quickly.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    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

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
