Well, I had so many ideas for this thread this year...before looking down the barrel of giving out the award to the best player over the 2 Marsh games. After all the build-up in the off-season, getting pumped up to be on the verge of leaving the Bottom 6, just to play 1 game and continue said off-season for an indeterminate period. It will a very interesting season should we get more games later this year, especially if we get top-up players who get points for a Tuesday afternoon game before getting delisted from November finals footy. Though in case we don't get more games, Viney gets an asterisk or two for 2020.

2 and a half months and only 1 player made the points in both games, Petracca dominated in voting the same way Viney did in Round 1. With 2 of the point-getters from March getting dropped for the game, it was good to see another debutant get their first Top 5 finish in Rivers. It was great to see point-regulars Oliver, Gawn and Salem amongst the top again but it really was all Petracca this round.

Petracca getting back-to-back Top 2 finishes in the first 2 rounds makes him only the 7th player ever in the 426 to achieve such a feat, but only time will tell if this will translate to overall success or a flash-in-the-pan moment.

Note 1: The 2001-05 seasons used a 3-2-1 system so the total score cannot show any scores for 4th or 5th. The score I can get have been adjusted accordingly, with season totals acknowledging that the score may be bigger. Season places are from under the original system.
Note 2: The 2003 season did not have vote threads after Round 3, so season totals cannot be made.
Note 3: The 2006 season used a 5-4-3-2-1 system so scores have been adjusted accordingly but season places are from under the original system.

So in the Carlton vote thread, I showed the best players in recent Blues games. This week, I'm just going to show you the best players against every club instead of waiting for those clubs to face us.​

For this, I took the Top 3 of every game since Round 10, 2001 until Round 23, 2019 and gave it the usual 3-2-1 system. The total Top 3 games only goes back to Round 1, 2004 because something something integrity, so some numbers have an asterisk next to it if that player got a Top 3 result from the 2001-03 seasons.​

I dont get it...but it looks impressive and lot of work.

Are they the number of games a player has played against certain teams in the left column of each opposition?

Edit: can't be coz neitz has a 0 and 6 against Footscray. Completely lost. :(

The left column is the number of times the player finished in the Top 3 in the votes against that particular team. The David Neitz v Footscray example is that he finished in the Top 3 thrice in a row 2003, 2002 and 2002, and so has enough points to be mentioned.

So why does the left column say 0* and not 3? Because the left column only goes back to 2004 due to the 2003 season abruptly ending after Round 3, meaning most teams are missing a game while a handful are missing 2. So why did I include the 2001, 2002, 2003 that do have threads in the right column? Because I still wanted to showcase those feats.

I probably should've kept the 10-9-8-7-6 system and only go back to 2006 :drunk:.

Thanks for the detailed explanation mate. I do understand now. Great job 👍
