Self indulgent rant by McGuire who cant come to grips with the fact that he is not the main man anymore. Much like an ex PM who finds themselves irrelevant once voted out. Weds are becoming the Pies show when he is on.
I just caught a clip of that ... that was bizarre. Haha you're spot on, he's the kevin rudd of ex club presidents.

Turnbull's kayaking vids give you an insight to life with a nice pension on Sydney Harbour...

It's simple really.

Bookies odds are driven by where punters are putting their money so it is effectively a weighted poll (weighted by wager amount) of people who gamble on the Brownlow.

The AFL media predictor is a much smaller sample size of AFL media peoples' opinion of who will win the Brownlow.

Neither has any affect whatsoever on who actually wins the Brownlow which is voted on by AFL umpires who continue to demonstrate that they have little feel for the game.
Umpies have gotten even more clueless in recent years. Now it's just "is this a big name/well known player" if yes and had a semi decent game automatic 3 votes. Bottomsmelli will poll close to 40

Frampton, Walker, the fogger DOGGER, himmelberg and lynch all in the same side 🤣

I know how to see Frampton on TV now during the game, after you see a group of players fighting for the ball after quick ball movement, he’s the tall bloke just out of frame jogging around aimlessly.

Is it beer o'clock yet?
Putting it a bit more subtly than Matt Rendell did...

The number of assumptions in built into this point of view is staggering. He does realize that drug and alcohol abuse is as high in private schools than public, surely?

Not sure what the stats are wrt to family breakups and teenage suicide but I’d suggest they would be similar irrespective of private v public school.
