well done shorty. a little surprised that he ended up winning but not surprised to see him up the top. and to think some people would have shipped him off at the end of 2018 because 'he was at his highest value and he'd be overtaken by naish/markov/etc'.

short, baker, grimes, vlastuin, balta in the top 8. you can tell which part of the ground the coaching staff put the highest value on.

also gotta give big kudos to the recruiters with short, baker, lambert, grimes all coming from the rookie/psd draft. seems we do our best work in the second round and in the rookie/extras. from the flag team:
2nd round: (5) astbury, balta, edwards, kmac, bolton
rookie/psd: (7) baker, short, lambert, grimes, castagna, pickett, houli
thats 12 of 19 players when you take out trades.

Damn polled every round. That’s a consistent season - probably got votes in round 16 too with the boys

its the way we do the voting. everyone out of 5. rewards consistency much more. i love it, great to see fresh faces.
good system..... role players and defenders are as rated as just as important to teams game plan/s and system/s and success as much as our prime movers and goal kickers.

Amazing effort Shorty.

A timely reminder that you never know what a player (or any person) is dealing with behind closed doors.

But but fairytale
Ablett and Danger earned the right to win the flag.
The way the media carried on it was as if no one at Richmond was going through adversity and didn't have anything relevant to play for.

Every player gets rated from 0 - 5 in every game.

In our round 3 game v Hawks 12 players got zero, our round 4 loss v Saints 14 players got zero.
Shorty polled votes in both games.
ooo interesting, so i guess 1 vote equals good game, 2 very good, 3 excellent 4 superb 5 perfect or something

0 must mean below ave

Great result. He had a cracking season. Should have been in the all
Australian conversation but he plays for Richmond and we have no guns except Dusty apparently

One thing about dusty not winning these JDMs, I reckon he's probably got a bonus clause in his contract for each one he wins

Lot of experts here were giving both Short and Macca a lot of stick right throughout the year. Both Shorty (winner) and Macca (5th) had stellar seasons. Some of you calling for them to be assed out of the team every week, yeh not so much. Lol

Short is a serious weapon. If you can't see it you need to go to Specsavers. His defensive work has improved out of sight and his skills off both sides are sublime. He was hitting long long targets in very slippery conditions when others couldn't get a handle on things. His running power is also under rated.

Macca is and always was a diesel engine. Wind him up, send him out and he will give and give and give all day. Interesting to read he got himself super fit after last year and concentrated on doing the simple things well. Big and strong and ideal for our style of play. Lots of respect that he won his spot back and has kept it.

Great to see these "role players" get the recognition they deserve.
