    Toast The Kevin Sheedy Medal.

    Yes and no. I would normally have agreed with this 100%, but last night Boak scored the highest 'second place getter' votes for a club in history behind the winner. ANd their third place-getter took 11, the same as our third place-getter. So an ''even split'' can be overcome. What it needs is...

    Toast The Kevin Sheedy Medal.

    Ollie Wines was Port's first Brownlow medallist - how many years after they joined the comp? As dlanod said, there's a degree of luck involved, some beneficence from the umpires (some of the voting patterns last night didn't really match the reality of the games - umpires see what they want to...

    I've held off on revealing any more of the MVP scores to see when our Kevin Sheedy Medal night was going to be held. While I still haven't seen a confirmed date, I suspect it's going to be next week (perhaps Friday or Saturday night?) so I'll work through the reveals during this week. P.S. My...

    Interesting development on Jarrod Brander - essentially WCE has thrown their arms up & said ''get him out of here''. He was one earlier I had wondered about whether we could pick up cheaply and turn into a defender, but ultimately felt the risk too high. The WCE decision seems to reinforce the...

    Review Ex Giants player watch

    Good luck to him, but certainly our loss. I believe we had him marked as Ryan Griffen's replacement - Griffen added some needed steel to our young midfield in his first two years (2015-16), which coincided with Jack's time at GWS - and we wanted Jack to be a bit patient and bide his time. But...

    He's certainly someone who's been noticed this year. He's on most draft watchers' boards in the 20s, some drifting out to early 30s; only Knightmare has him earlier - at 8 (but IMHO has jumped the shark a bit this year in trying to be different)! If we take Callaghan at #2 (sliding back after...

    To be fair, we don't know if Cogs has or hasn't. It was a question put to Sam Reid on radio about what he would say to Toby, and his answer was that he's just had such a conversation. Because it's about Toby, it's picked up by the media. Sam wasn't asked if Cogs had talked to him.

    SO, it that 6 days until the voting finishes, or 6 days until the KSM night? Either way, it's not before next Thursday!

    From my perspective, I don't think anyone should pooh-pooh the PSD threat. I know it's often brought up on BF by posters, but in reality is played out much less often. However, in this case, Adelaide has form, and shown they're quite willing to take advantage of their lowly ladder position when...
