The idea that Angus Brayshaw had a better season than Dusty.....
Speaking of odd, we won 3 more games than 2017 yet ended up with less team votes overall this year.

We also finished 6th in the team votes despite finishing top of the ladder, including below Geelong who won 5 less games.

Team votes 2018

Coll'wood   96
Melbourne  93
Hawthorn   90
Geelong     88
West Coast 81
Richmond   78
GWS          76
Sydney       71
Adelaide     69
North Melb.68
Essendon   65
Port Adel.   62
Fremantle  56
Bulldogs    47
Brisbane    45
Carlton      37
St Kilda     35
Gold Coast 31

No surprise there.
Free kick Collingwood, and a brownlow vote on the side  :shh

Did they have a highlights package for Mitchell that was something other than handballs?

Hopefully the club is having some serious discussions with the AFL over the way we're umpired during the off-season.....  :shh

Donít think itís that odd MT. As has been brought up again since Fridayís performance we have let the oppositions mids rack up disposals. Most obvious case was round 19 win vs Collingwood when our best had it 22 times while collingwood had 4 players with 30 or more.
I guess TK I just don't rate accumulators who have no decisive impact on the game especially when their side loses whereas a player in the winning side may have had less disposals but was crucial to setting up the victory. Cotch got bagged for about 4 years for racking up cheap disposals yet other players at other clubs are lauded based purely on boosting their disposal stats. Sidebottom's impact in the Prelim was immense but not just because he has 41 possies (thanks to us not tagging him :facepalm). He cut us to ribbons with every one of those disposals.

Apparently meaningless handballs across the half backline if you look at this years results.

Certainly not match winning touches when the game is on the line.

Disgraceful!
