Vlastuin was consistently solid all year whereas Prestia was putrid for at least two-thirds of it - dont know how anyone can't be sure as to who had the better season overall....

To cap it off, I thought Vlastuin's final series was better than Prestia's.

Vlas was huge at critical times, and his marking was a standout. He was a key part of the best defensive unit in the league, which was what ultimately won us the flag IMO.

this website gave Prestia 57 votes to 31 (vlas) for 2017.

wonder who polled where in the b&f?

I love them both. They are both premiership heroes.

That's all that matters.  :gotigers

Was about a 4, but stepped it up at the business end of the season so I gave 8.
That's it, sir

Pox as.

Had a great finals series Tho.

i love them both too, but credit where its due Prestia had a better year than Vlastuin by any measure.

- Prestia finished top 10 in the clubs best and fairest
- Prestia got more Brownlow votes
- Prestia got almost twice as many votes on this website.

you peoples who gave Vlastuin 8's and 9's then Prestia 6's and 7's are arse about. shame on you's

Vlas was garbage at the start of the year, much like Dion (excluding round 1). Vlas went out injured and came back strong, about the same time Prestia showed some decent form too. It's a battle of injury vs. playing pooe

Don't lump me with him, never said who had the better year :shh. But to say Vlas was "consistently solid all year" is outrageous

...and upon reflection, I forgot about Vlastuin's early matches stinking it up in the midfield as well as his injury, but nevertheless, on balance he still had a comfortably better year than Prestia so in sum: YR is right but Dooks is still wrong...horribly, horribly wrong....
