    Stephen has been so consistent without starring that often, Only a handful of games in his career have been ordinary. Got a lot of respect for him and indeed the Hill family.

    Or we just had such a shit year that there was no one else to give votes to. Neale was down on form, Fyfe too, Walters injured, S Hill injured etc.

    Who was the flog that was torching Billy on here all year? Can we have a naming and shaming?

    Brad will enjoy next year with Harley Bennel to kick the ball to. Countless times Brad was clear with the ball only to look forward and have no one to kick to and forced to go lateral.

    Bradley's aerobic capacity is incredible. Runs all day, 100%. He's everywhere, and gives his all defensively. Just his skills in the second half of the season were abysmal. If he can back himself more often, he'll be even better next season.

    Tabs was there with the Peel wining team. No idea on Crozier due to the shit coverage. But I expect he would be as we are no Adelaide.

    Good to know that kicking to the opposition wins you medals. Works for Dangerfield and Martin, now Hill. skills are no longer needed in AFl

    Maybe not the AFI, but they are needed in the AFL.

    So Kersten coming in 10th.... He played 20 games for the season.

    Only one player not in the top 10 played more games then him. Lachie Weller played 22 games and didn't break into the top 10.

    Crozier, Tucker and McCarthy all played 19 games and would have been Kersten's main competition but they were also fairly hit and miss throughout the season. Hughes played 18 games, the rest significantly less.

    So Kersten coming in 10th is perhaps more by default of playing almost the entire season.

    Wah. I forgot I'm not allowed to post negative. He's the greatest player in history. We'll win a flag next year and for the next 20. Is that how I'm meant to do it?
