Spot on. People still try and say the umpires are impartial and aren't affected by media bias. The way the votes have jumped for star players and only star players in the last few years it sure doesn't look like that.Its never been a great award but it has become worse over time. The umpires literally only look at a couple of players each game. Why is why we see suchhigh winning scores.
Not sure what's becoming more irrelevant, All-Australian selections or the Brownlow. The first has openly become something the media just pick their favourite players - absolutely irrelevant of form - and the Brownlow is only one step removed.
