Haha bullshit. Not a single non geelong supporter would come close to agreeing with you.

Brent Harvey and Dane Swan are the only 2 you could argue. However Swan at his best was unstoppable and put up 40+ disposal games with goals.

Selwood doesn't even deserve to be mentioned alongside Sam Mitchell Simon Black Rob Harvey.

Judd was the best in the game for a few seasons. Selwood has arguably never been top 10 in his career for a single season
Selwood never top 10 in a single season...don't post an argument and then finish on that dribble.

Hey MacStradbroke, you need to read all of Topkent's responses. So when he says Selwood was never top 10 he means he personally disagrees with anyone who had Selwood in their top 10, i.e., the umpires, AA selectors, media outlets, coaches, and of course football peers.

He would have very little understanding of our wonderful game then. The guy is a superstar. I remember when he was drafted they said his knees would be cooked by 25. Maybe they meant 35. Doesn't look like stopping anytime soon.

He's ripped Melbourne to shreds several times. Maybe that's where the angst lies.

Probably a good time to revisit this thread now that we have a decent sample size to judge.

So, will Gaz break the record this year?

If it happens it will be a great demonstration of confirmation bias.

He might break the record this year. But just watch out. Many more midfielders will break Gary's 'record'. Not because they are better players, pretty simple reasoning, Gary broke the record by not being a better player.

The 'award' has become a joke.

Nuance is gone. Knowing who actually won the game is gone.

AFLPA award is the closest to reality, but it it very much ad hoc.

Two from today, votes against West Coast, votes last week, that's off the top of my 15-beers-deep head. He will have double figures this year minimum

Jordan Lewis a few years ago mid season was announced as a sneaky outsider for a Brownlow. Was included in all the talk for the rest of the season.

His actual Brownlow votes up to that point was 3 or 4, and from that point was about 10 or 12.

So once the media announced how good he was going his votes massively increased. Possibly just a coincidence...
And I bet he clocked someone and gave up his chance of winning it.

It's official. Ablett Jr now holds the all time record for Brownlow votes.
Absolute privilege to have watched this bloke play.

Even this year before he was injured he was murdering us - geelong would have won that game if he didnt go down imho.

Just amazing

He should have another couple of brownlows at least. If his last name wasn't Ablett he would have 4 Brownlows at least. Every second person involved in football is jealous of Ablett snr. I see it everytime his name comes up. Many in the media would prefer if he wasn't mentioned.

Also had he not have left Geelong he may have had another one or two.
