Brownlow votes 2024 progress thread



Recommended Posts

Dees after 4 games should again have a few players up in the votes. I’ll try to update weekly or periodic.  
 

v Swans 

Likely no Dees players get votes 

only JV7 could be considered for a vote 

v Dogs 

Likely votes 

M.Gawn 3 C.Oliver 2 S.May 1 

Trac might get a 1 vote 

v Hawks 

Likely votes 

C.Petracca 3 M.Gawn 2 B.Fritsch 1 

v Port 

M.Gawn 3. ANB 1 (Butters will probably get the two votes). Trac might squeeze a 1 vote but unlikely. 
 

so after 4 rounds likely Gawn to have between 5-7 votes, Trac 3-5 votes and Clarry 2-3 votes

Would be disappointed if ANB didn't get at least 2 votes - he repeatedly stood and delivered for us when the game threatened to go Port's way in the 3rd.

Last night I think it’s almost unanimous that the votes are headed by Trac.  For me it’s likely to be

3 C.Petracca

2 J.Dawson - yes the umps were so crows biased, he will steal 2 votes 😡

1 M.Gawn

May or Lever or Mcvee could vote but backline players mostly get ignored

so after 5 games, likely Gawn to have between 6-8 votes, Trac also on 6-8votes and Clarry 2-3 votes.

Hope you are right. Max is still at 100/1 - same as Grundy which is ridiculous -  and I am on him.

Gawn has managed double-figures Brownlow votes six times, including 20 in 2018. So it is possible.

By the numbers this season you could realistically make the case that he is playing his best football. The only stat that he's down on is contested marks but that can be changed with one clunking game. His stubborn refusal to kick his 100th goal might be a problem.

Every once in a while it blows my mind to reflect on how good Max is. He has been monstrously dominant in three games already this season and very, very good in another, but by the numbers this is all just normal.

Anyway, currently on 99 goals, 97 behinds. Which will hit the ton first and will we all be storming the pitch? :D

2 goals, 30 disposals, 7 tackles, seeing we lost it may not be as high on the list but should at least get 1 vote hopefully. Something like the below

3 - Heeney
2 - Grundy
1 - Viney

I think the Lions players will grab all the votes.  They were 8 goals up before the last 15 minutes saw the Dees actually find the footy in the contest and kick the last 4 goals.  Gawn was clearly our best and may get a 1 vote but I think it’s unlikely.
Probably after 6 games, Gawn sits between 6-8 votes, Trac also on 6-8votes
 and Clarry 2-3 votes.

V the cats, like to see either May or Lever in the votes.  With the Dees win, likely it’s 

3-S.May

2- M.Holmes

1- M.Gawn

so projected votes have Gawn between 10-12votes, Trac around 6-8votes , May on potentially 6-7 votes and Clarry modestly on 2-3 votes.

If it was an award that wasn't exclusively mids then Max would be looking at top 3 right now behind Heeney and Merrett.  He is having a superb season.

Smashed by the Eagles in a very poor performance 

Eagles definitely will scoop up all the votes. 

Likely votes

3- H.Reid. Embarrassed our experienced gun mids. Ouch.  He bullied us without much of a whimper   

2- T.Kelly.  Did Goodwin not see him clearly as someone to restrict. 30 possessions as he ran free (like Walsh did the previous week)

1- J.McGovern.  Dees players kicked it to him all night as if he was our key forward

or 

Jake Waterman might get the 1 vote with his 5 goals by strong marks & straight kicking

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
