An interesting article here regarding Christian Petracca's chances of winning the 2023 Brownlow Medal. For those interested, the link to the article by Damian Barrett can be found here: https://www.afl.com.au/news/968337/barrett-cruel-twist-that-has-star-melbourne-demon-christian-petracca-on-track-for-brownlow-medal I definitely think that Christian Petracca is a smoky to win it. That is the one silver lining of Clayton Oliver being out injured, I guess. Although I would prefer them to steal Brownlow votes from eachother. However, realistically, the Magpies Nick Daicos is probably the clear favourite for the Brownlow. Nevertheless, I am sure Christian and the rest of us here would prefer he wins another Premiership Medallion and a Norm Smith Medal with the Melbourne Football Club.
Apparently it was mentioned on Fox Footy on TV earlier this evening that Clayton Oliver could well be the early favourite for the 2023 Brownlow Medal. Any thoughts on this? Obviously Premiership Medallions are far more valuable, but it would be a wonderful individual achievement if our Clarrie could win this year's Brownlow Medal for 2023. Anyway, if he continues to have outstanding performances like he did in his 150th game with 25+ possessions and kicks 2 or 3 goals again he will definitely keep gaining votes from the umpires. Especially as there are now 4 field umpires. So I am now assuming the votes are 4, 3, 2, 1 rather than the previous 3, 2, 1? However, I am unsure how the voting system will work this year in games compared to previous years. I guess we shall wait and see? Either way, it would be fantastic to have a new Brownlow Medallist at the Melbourne Football Club. It has been a long time since Shane Woewodin won a Brownlow Medal back in 2000. Fingers crossed it could be our Clarrie in 2023! 🤞 We really are incredibly lucky to have such a champion footballer like Clayton Oliver at the Melbourne Football Club! GO DEMONS!!! 🔴🔵👹
