    Is it always five per club? Melksham an interesting invite, I’d have thought Jordie or T McDonald would get there given leadership group. McDonald should poll more votes too.

    Just who I think deserves it:

    Awards
    Troy Broadbridge Memorial Trophy - Thomas Bugg or get ******.

    Ian Ridley Memorial Trophy - Nev Jetta, couldn't not be given his off-field work.

    Harold Ball Memorial Trophy - Spargo & Fritsch tied?

    James McDonald Trophy - Vanders. Petracca, Gawn & Vince unlucky equal second.

    Ron Barrassi Jnr Memorial Trophy - Viney

    Norm smith Memorial Trophy - No idea what this even is so I'll say Brayshaw.

    Best and Fairest
    Gawn
    Oliver
    Brayshaw
    Jetta
    Hogan

    I'm not sure tbh, can imagine Melksham got votes in the Carlton game.

    Assuming captains need to be present, because i thought Viney was interesting seeing his limited amount of games

    I imagine the club gets some say, and they would definitely want Viney there for his marketability. Several hours of network exposure on camera etc

    I think they would send the captain regardless, in our case 2 of them, and they send the two most likely to poll (so they can look happy/modest/surprised for the cameras etc.) then a remaining spot for another guy that they are pleased with. Melk fits the bill. I’m going to push him up 2 slots in our MFC B&F on the back of it.

    Give it 5 years, it’ll be Viney, Gus, Petracca, Oliver, and Harmes, with Lever and Hogan just two left out in the cold

    In 5 years we will have 1,000,000 members bandwagoning off our 4-peat and we will be so powerful that the AFL will have to accomodate anything we want to do, so everyone will come along.

    Actually I think Frosty should go along as a gatecrasher this year. I’d back him in against whatever crappy security company they have arranged. What do they plan to do? Tackle him?

    Set up a giant fan at the entrance - the gust from which catches his ears like a parachute and ejects him from Crown Plaza back over the Yarra

    I wanted to vote for Nev, but before I knew what I’d done I had voted for Max. Strange

    But WTF does that really mean????

    I googled what to wear to AFL best and fairest and found some random 2016 page from Rebecca Judd full of suggestions. Had to pass on the ones I scrolled through, though do acknowledge that the see-through Lycra and chiffon numbers do almost work on the 14yo coat hangers modelling the chosen look.

    Stuff it. I’m going to go grand elder sort of thing. Still concerned, but I’ve made a decision so stuff the universe in general.

    To be fair I feel for ladies in this scenario. I would wear dark suit (either navy or black), white shirt and tie would depend on mood. But ladies can have formal mean a million different things.

    Oh yes and it’s very you. Mining chic was always bound to make a comeback.
