5-3 - Boak
5-2 - Clurey
3-2 - Laird
4 - Jonas
4 - DBJ
1 - Marshall
1 - Amon

Personally I'm surprised that Laird got votes ahead of Seedsman. Thought Seedsman was easily their most damaging player.
Blimey, Laird?

Even going back and watching the replay I barely noticed him. Stats aren't always right ...

I feel this way about Burton and not just the coaches but BF.

Did people see his first quarter? Thought it was one of the best quarters by any Port player this season.
We're starting to see what we kinda knew we would get once we could get him on the park reliably.

Definitely one of my favourite players.

I don't get the downplaying of Boak's game, thought he was fantastic when the game was hot and did great work on the inside and outside. Didn't get a kick in the last quarter but who cares.
I said as he was awarded the medal that he was as good as any of the 5 or 6 they could have given it to, but he just plays that well every week so we take him for granted. I would have been happy to see Clurey or Lycett win it but happy with Boak as well.

I know some people were disappointed but keep in mind that the Crows turned it into a scrap so they didn't get blown out, but it also gave them zero chance of winning. Even when they got within 14 points they were never in the game and didn't want to be. If they'd spent the game trying to be attacking at all we'd have won by triple figures. They basically did what Choco should have done after qtr time in 2007.

News filtering through that Ken told the players before the game, "Make sure you win by the square root of Taylor Walker's IQ." :)
This actually makes a lot of sense. Walker couldn't get a kick because he'd ascended to a higher plane of existence and become a non-corporeal being.

Nothing new there, but great to see a positive piece from our perspective on the AFL home page. Especially pleased with the comments about Wines. Definitely now a captain-in-waiting.
And being willing to accept being demoted with a positive attitude and bringing his best this year. Shows a lot of guts. Impressed with Ollie.
