I reckon Sydney might have some regret right now 😂
pretty well documented that he had defensive deficiencies at the Swans , Horse gave him plenty of chances to fix it and rectify it.

Swans mids are probably the best 2 way runners in the comp

Richmond - 18 wins - 78 votes
West coast - 16 wins - 81 votes
Collingwood - 15 wins - 96 votes
Hawthorn - 15 wins - 90 votes
Melbourne - 14 wins - 93 votes
Sydney - 14 wins - 71 votes

Collingwood 3 less wins, but 18 more votes than Richmond.
Melbourne 4 less wins, but 15 more votes than Richmond.

It just shows, winning games isn't everything, when it comes to Brownlow votes!

Working on 4.5 votes in a winning game, and 1.5 in a losing game, here is their theoretical vs actual:

Richmond: 87 v 78
West Coast: 81 v 81
Collingwood: 78 v 96
Hawthorn: 78 v 90
Melbourne: 75 v 93

Sydney: 75 v 71

Will start pretty short odds next year I’m tipping.


Having seen every Melbourne game this year, I'm of the opinion he over achieved in this years Brownlow.
I was confident, that even despite the Ruckman's curse, that Gawn would beat Oliver, but I didn't think Brayshaw would vote anything like that.
One thing the umpires seemed to miss a lot was DE. There were a few high possession, low DE games that got rewarded with high votes.

LOL, there were some shockers!
Harks back to G Williams having 40+ and getting no votes, and coming 2nd (?) in the Brownlow.

1993 Wanganeen defeated him by a vote.

I am sure years later one of thhe umpires came out and said the other umpire refused to give votes to Williams.

Brayshaw always noticeable when he gets the ball - either on the burst through the middle or kicking a few goals. Also stands out with his green headgear, so probably gets the umpires attention. Maybe green is the new blond :p

Shows you what a good coach Clarkson is I guess.

or maybe Mitchell woke up to the fact that talent alone doesn't guarantee success and you need hard work as well to survive and prosper in the AFL

worked out well

Tough year in the office. Ended up down by $30 at the end of the day, could have been worse. As a lot of people, Brayshaw overtaking Gawn in the final round cost me a fair bit of money. Pretty happy with backing Whitfield for most GWS votes at $4.33 though.
