Neale had a couple slightly less then stellar games when he was "terrorised" -Lyons took over and dominated those two weeksWill Coniglio be the lure in a greyhound race ? Who takes votes off Neale and Bontempelli ? interesting
year coming up, accumulation versus impact Dusty and Danger got a lot more votes than Mitchell.
Which Kelly? J.Kell or T.KellNeale has a lot of votes competition in that midfield, something that some Victorians might overlook. Could be heading for an Aker/Black/Voss type Brownlow situation there. Kelly has been more of a cut above his fellow midfield than Neale, and Cripps obviously will be right in there.
Has he? I would have thought Neale was far better and more consistent then other Brisbane players. Certain players might have had a better once off game, but can guarantee a lot of 1 or 2 votes in Brisbane wins. Maybe I am wrong though.Neale has a lot of votes competition in that midfield, something that some Victorians might overlook. Could be heading for an Aker/Black/Voss type Brownlow situation there.

I agree it is very open; a number of players could win it which is great.My pre-season tip was Cripps, my only worry with Cripps is that he's had a bit too many off games and Carlton's rubbish form in the first half of the year.
I'm thinking Neale now though. He'd get attention given his high-profile move and he's standing out in that midfield even against the rest of the field.
Kelly's problem will be Dangerfield types polling well. Bont has a shot but probably hasn't quite stood out enough. Cogs would have had a chance but for the injury (though he suffers from the competition problem too). (EDIT: Forgot about Boak somehow, he'd have to be up there too)
I think those 4-5 look like standouts.
In any case, this is the most interesting race for the Brownlow since the Priddis year. 15 was all about whether Fyfe could hold onto his lead, 16 was a Dangerfield walk, 17 was a Martin walk once Danger got suspended and Mitchell was a clear cut favourite in 18.
Yeah true. Guess I just think the gap between Kelly and the rest has been smaller than implied.However, I disagree a little about vote stealing. I think it’s a little overrated how much that matters. A lot of players have won Brownlows in very strong teams where others players polled well. As long as a player is the dominant one then it’s fine, and there is no doubt really that Kelly has been Geelongs best midfielder. It’s not a coincidence that most of the games the Cats have lost are ones where he has been quiet.
The coaches and players MVP are close enough to mids only too, we've had 1 non-mid win those awards in the last 15 year's too, 2/30 isn't much better.The only reason its a mids only award is because the umps cast the votes, the most deserving player rarely wins it.

Before the mandatory laughter let me say Tom Mitchell won five of these categories when he won his
Brownlow Medal, now to keep it real i am not going to tell you which five categories they were. No
clues given, but one man is top five or number one in ALL of those categories and he plays for a team
very high up on the ladder and headed for finals.
Yep I'd say the top 5 will be: Danger, Kelly, Neale, Cripps, Bont (no particular order)Are people thinking Bont will be top 5?
