How have McCarthy and Lyons got so many votes ?

No wonder they kept playing Lyons. They were invested in him.

Sheesh, when you're having a whinge that your whipping boys haven't gone worse in the best and fairest voting...
I've been a huge wrap for Lyons since we got hold of him but he was ordinary mostly and unfortunately a liability as the year wore on when we kept playing him and he couldn't run or kick.

Quite bemused how he got so many votes. You don't agree ?

Ok I briefly started watching and they showed highlights of the finals, then said the vote is up to round twenty and took a break to a hip hop song that kept saying 'black lingerie' over and over. Is that a thing? Feeling slightly out of the loop but should at least mention I'm glad it's streamed!!

It does seem to be an anomaly I agree, but we never get a breakdown of why.

His first half was alright and then he faded as the season went on, which is what the votes show as he only received 6 votes between round 13 and 20 compared to his faster start of polling 25 in 13 rounds.

25 votes for JL to round 13, 31 at round 20. With him missing the finals he will be out of the top 10 pretty comfortably. Isn’t this consistent with what you are saying?

I agree his best games weren’t against our toughest opponents but he was good in some of the early games.

people quick to forget JL was pretty close to best on in a couple of our early games, one that stands out in particular being first one against GC. could see it reflected in how he polled in the brownlow too

I actually thought he was ordinary in the early games and terrible in the later ones.

Just calling it as I saw it. Charity votes imo.

No big deal , just wonder what the thinking is.
