Coniglio should be top 5 and Ward should get a few votes but can't see too many other giants polling in multiple games
It would be great if Gawn finishes second and Grundy in the top 5 but not sure on how many games they would poll in

3 - Callan Ward
2 - Nick Haynes

Round 5 v St Kilda

Then again... I have no idea why the Brownlow is held in so much higher regard than any of the other awards. We spend pretty much every minute of every game calling the umpires every name under the sun - questioning their eyesight, mental capacity and basic understanding of the game - yet in this regard we are supposed to take their opinion as something that matters, something to celebrate. Weird.

Thought Coniglio would have polled more votes but he can remain underrated for another season but well done to Whitfield and Ward and with the reasoning on why a Giant will struggle to win the medal I think it is why Mitchell and Fyfe will poll well in that others will not take votes and the ball away from them but if Coniglio has another goal a game and 25 touches next year along with having Scully, Kelly and Greene in the team he should get some individual honours

I believe that unless someone truly ramps their game that top group will always take points from each other, great for GWS, not so great for producing a Brownlow winner
Brisbane begs to differ, but we'd need to finish a clear top two with plenty of dominant performances to get the votes to do it. Only four sweeps and another four 3-2 pairings isn't enough.
