Because the media sites are all so useless it's impossible to get the full leaderboard ... I could only get the top 11 from The Age. Cameron the only non-mid in it.
The umps now have an out. Because it's become a "mid fielder's award" there is no incentive for them to assess non-mids, and now they can take the easy way out and only give to mids, because that's now the expectation.
It's something of a miracle that Cameron got as many points as he did, which says someone about the season he's had.
All adding to the degradation of the Brownlow as an award deserving of respect.
The overturning of his suspension was of course a travesty. But not due to bias. It's a consequence of the AFL turning over their sporting tribunal to court room barristers and giving them free rein to w*nk on and on for literally hours. Procedural fairness my backside. By the time the barristers had finished polluting the simple proceedings of a sporting tribunal, the tribunal members were so befuddled, they didn't know their own names, let alone what day of the week it was. It's been apparent to fans for years, but it seems it took this debacle for the AFL to wake up to it.
