Hmmm, I don't know how this can happen? He's been nowhere near his form from last year.
I think last year is taken into account as well, so while he has had a less then perfect start this year he was huge last year which has shot him up to number 1.

It takes into account something like his last 40 games over a 2 year period, with the most recent being weighted more than game 39 and 40. So I'm pretty sure what has actually happened, is that he's moved past the games he had out with injury in '17.

His last month or so has been massive. Was also very good before that. If everyone prepares like this guy we’d be in a much different spot.

This thread is giving me a bad sense of deja vu. Our team sucks, but we're clinging to the performance of our best player to keep our chins up. Very much how I felt as a young kid in the 80's.
Them: "Hey, Melbourne sucks!"
Me: "yeah, well, Brian Wilson/Peter Moore - Brownlow winners!"

I'd love Viney to step down from the captaincy so he can focus on his game but I feel like would never do that. Keen for Gawn to co-skip with him next year with Jonesy playing on in 2020 but without leadership responsibilities.

Isn’t it great.

I think this sh*t is why I’m a Melbourne supporter. Not for me your routine, boring “yay we are PREMIERS” crap. That’s for ordinary people. I’m a supporter of an atypical club - terrible overall but with spatterings of greatness. Basically a true AFL emotional connoisseur’s choice.

When does his contract run out? I'm seriously worried the bloke will get sick of propping up the rabble and jump ship to a decent club.

The only point i can ever see Gawn leaving is like a Goddard like cap issue and the club turfs him or very late in his career to do some mentor role at another club
