1st place - #9 Nic Naitanui

Total votes - 38.42

Ranking - 1st

Games played - 17

We finally got a full season out of the big man and boy did he pick up where he left off. Naitanui was on a mission in 2020 and reminded the competition that the ruck is his position. Tapwork, leap and contested ability was all on show this year and NN was rightfully awarded his second AA jacket for his efforts. Nic ranked 2nd in the competition for Total Hitouts and 3rd for Total Centre Clearances which shows that when he isn't tapping it to our mids, he is doing it all himself. Two BOG honours for NN this year in Round 9 vs Geelong with 4.72 votes and the Elimination Final vs Collingwood with 4.30 votes may seem low for the great man, but when you consider that NN was our only player to poll in every single game that he played in 2020, it's pretty clear why he won and why no one was really ever close to beating him.

Congratulations Nic Naitanui, you are the BigFooty West Coast Eagles Player of the Year for 2020!

I'll do individual votes when I can be bothered. Next week probably.

Everyone who voted in every game or missed one will get done, miss any more than that and you'll have to ask me.
