    Would you also throw in Michael Roberts? He would be a chance maybe Sean Logie or Lee Warnett also?

    Re: who stands the best chance out of this lot to win the O'Dwyer medal 08

    I dont think he is worthy of being in the poll when players like Logie, Warnett and Roberts miss out... im not having a dig at you though bystanding backman for putting him in there though.

    i think you'll find i've put Sacco as Finleys choice, for Toc i put Anthony Mellington because he has been probably Toc's Major signing at the moment.

    i think it was for the almighty dollar. we can't compete with what tat are offering him and good luck to him. i know that i wouldn't want to play in a team, who will be flogged by 20 goals most weeks and we haven't given up on him yet.

    Think Captains of each side will be well up in the voting, be surprised how many votes can be added with a shake of the hand. (Still need to get a kick, but certainly helps)
    On Roberts he has no chance going on last year, kicked bags of 6 and 7 from CHF in winning games and didnt get a vote.

    Whyman has given himself the best chance, would be one of his goals this season to win the league medal and has worked extremely hard over the pre-season.

    Look out for Rumbalara on baller John Jackson this season didn't look out of place in three VFL practise macthes.

    But my moneys on my little cuz Djars.

    Re: who stands the best chance out of this lot to win the O'Dwyer medal 08

    Late news in other threads I have picked on Moama about there players from Sunbury, After speaking to some of the players from the region they are in agreeance how in the world do you pay $800 per game to a bloke who has not done anything remarkable, he played two's most of last year and according to my sources wasn't anything special Amatuer player in Melb(my source) have said that he is not worth a pich of shit. This is coming from blokes currently training with these guys please Moama don't expect finals more money than sense in my book. Rule these players out of any chance of medals and stick with Djaran even though I thought he was playing off players who were not experienced enough to stick with him we will see a different footballer (although shows a lot of class) when he plays on some class and hard checking.:cool:

    Ease up..................All 4 Sunbury players are proving there value at Moama, Luke can play and you know that.........Kegga is a gun as is Lobby and Rosco, Just remember as a ff he takes the best backman and that frees up Kegga and co, also Moamas ground is small and that makes being a ff hard as most goals are kicked from 40 to 50 out........its not about the individual, its about team, as long as the magpies keep winning then its money well spent.

    in my opinion i would have had him as b.o.g on saturday. very switched on player and was a catalyst in moama's win on the w/e. although hes very lightly built, he is one of the smartest players i have seen play.

    How did he go on the weekend against some quality opposition????? Can't wait to see him in action if he is "one of the best players in the league". Two weeks running against quality will definitely tell where he stands under this status!:eek:

    from Numurkah Mark Brown should go very close to winning, clearly been best on ground for the blues for the majority of games this yr. Tyson Saunders or Ben Mcnammara would be Numurkah's next best chances.
