For all the love that Joel and paddy get from the AFL, there is another duo quietly having a similar impact.

Why are Dustin Martin and Trent Cotchin not getting the same level of respect and adulation as their Geelong counterparts.

They are arguable classier, and just as effective.

Discuss
Because Cotchin isn't in the same class as the other 3?

You’re right. He’s on another level. He’s the only premiership captain and Brownlow medallist of the 4.
Yet Danger and Selwood combined have polled 94 more Brownlow votes than Cotchin and Martin (403 to 309) and are both in the top 10 for career Brownlow votes (Martin is 16th and Cotchin 46th).

No wonder. Both of yours have played more games than both of ours.

To the end of 2019 Dangerfield/Selwood combined average Brownlow votes per game: 1.36
Same thing for Cotchin/Martin: 1.48

Take away non-polling finals, considering Selwood is towards the top of the list for finals played.... it accounts for about 50 games between them.

Time to put this equation to the ultimate test...

Winner, showered with praise. Loser, taunted and booed etc etc.
So by your equation Shannon Byrnes is better than Paddy Dangerfield ... ok.... it’s a 22 a side team sport

Congrats Selwood for captaining Geelong into his first grand final as captain after 4 prelim losses, 1 semi final loss and 2 elimination final losses!

Cotchy can show him the ropes of how to captain a team in a grand final :)
