Brownlow Medal: A quick guide

Forget what you’ve heard, tonight the winner will probably look something like this:

* played finals
* midfielder
* kicked 20+ goals
* will have a low (single digit) or high (29 or more) jumper number
* maximum 8 letters in surname

Ps. Watson was a non-finals playing anomaly and may yet come with an asterisk.


  1. Neil Belford says

    Well I was disappointed Swanny didn’t win, not because he would have qualified as above and validated the model, but because from the time I started counting how many pots he had – from about round 8 to the end I think he polished off one per round.

    I was very much looking forward to his speech.
