I'd be sad if he polled the most votes and then was ineligible I don't think he will anyway, probably be more like top 10.
15 votes in the end.
15 votes doesn't do his season Justice. Great year either way. Good work Zerrett!
Would have polled more but had plenty of mates taking votes off him.
Good signs on where the team is heading.
The votes were about right - Had a better and more influential year in 2016.
I'm with Yaco on this one, I think it's less a fault of Zach tho and more on what the coaching staff had him doing.
Well... he was 8 behind Danger and 11 behind Dusty.
100% correct with your post - I was bemoaning from around round 3 that Merrett was obtaining too many possessions in the back half and he didn't spend enough time in centre bounces for the first half of the year - Coaches got the balance better in the last third of the year.
3 Votes Zed Merrett
Better late than never.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Zach.

Really think he was robbed? Only missed out by 17 votes and missed a game.
In all seriousness, it's kind of nice to see him finish outside the top 3, if only just, considering the level he played at (for the most part).
that’s the best video!
I like the idea of him entering pre-season with a bit of a chip on his shoulder. Keep the motivation high and see whether he can take his game up a notch.
this low B&F result is going to hurt when he gets traded to port
Port? I thought he was going to St Kilda?
I think the finish is about right.
He started in a blaze of glory but was not consistently impacting games later in the season.
Hopefully next year he is getting most of his footy between the arcs and kicking the ball into forward 50.
Some are dazzled by stats, rather than impact - I thought Merrett and Hurley would poll lower than expected - 2018 should see Merrett gain more possesions in the forward half, while Hurley needs less possessions and better one-on-one defending.
Has been selected in the International Rules side.
Only going to get better as the team improves around him.
Merrett to Smith to Fantasia is going to be a thing of beauty.
Let's just never use him in that 'quarterback' role ever again and he should be fine.
