    Brownlow is best and FAIREST.
    AA is just best 22 for that season.
    Watts the issue?

    Like Lance Armstrong...

    Internationally recognised as a cheat.

    A nobody in the record books.

    Don't really care, Jobe isn't a bad bloke either (different to people using the Lance Armstrong example, who was a total campaigner.) There is no need to kick him to death even after retirement.

    Summed it up!

    Is most definitely a drug cheat because he has been internationally recognised as such by the world's governing body in the world's court (haha)

    Besides the drug cheat period of his career, Watson has been bog average and only recognised solely for his surname.

    His greatest achievements were synthetically produced and thus he's either going down as the face of Essendope with Hirdy and Dank or as a nobody.

    Heroin does not have anything to do with this thread. Gary Ablett Snr does not have anything to do with this thread.

    This thread is about Jobe Watsons cheating resulting in him being stripped of an award.

    Please provide something with relevence.

    I feel that if he has been stripped of a brownlow then it is debatable that he even deserved to be AA.

    I'd say he should be stripped as he was on performance enhancing supplaments during the season, even if he is a victim of circumstance he still benefitted from it with a career best season.

    Your thoughts?

    B grade drug cheating plodders like Jobe Watson should never be compared to Premiership stars such as Trent Cotchin and Sam Mitchell

    Did Watson even win a final during his career? will be remembered as nothing more than an average player who was a drug cheat that delusional Essendon supporters thought was a "star"

    Lol and when we are all long gone the history books will say that the winners were Cotchin and Mitchell. No one will even know who Jobe Watson is.

    Back on topic.

    How is the All-Australian side worse of with Jobe? Suspended players make the team every year.
