    Brownlow Medal Main Contenders in 2016

    Patrick Dangerfield Profile

    An obvious favourite for the Brownlow Medal. He is a prolific vote getter having polled 20+ in each of the past four seasons. In fact since 2012 he has polled 88 votes from 85 games, polling in 36 of those at a rate of 42.3% which is astronomical. Of those 36 games, he polled 3 votes in 22 which is even more remarkable.

    Dustin Martin Profile

    Dustin Martin is no stranger to polling well on Brownlow Medal night. He has polled double digits in 4 of the past 5 seasons, including 21 votes last season. He has polled 73 votes in his six seasons in the AFL, polling in 39 of 128 matches at a rate of 30%. This is superb for a player in a team without much success in this time.

    Luke Parker Profile

    Luke Parker has emerged as a genuine A-Grade midfielder of the AFL and is set to feature heavily in Brownlow Medal betting. However he has plenty of work to do given he has polled just 26 votes in total over his 90 game career. However 21 of those votes have come the past two years and he has lifted to another level in 2016.

    Marcus Bontempelli Profile

    Marcus Bontempelli has quickly emerged into one of the most dangerous players in the competition. He is the prototype of the modern footballer, which is remarkable in just three seasons. He polled 4 votes in his debut season of 2014, then backed that up last year with 13 votes from 20 matches. We expect him to poll well in 2016.

    Dan Hannebery Profile

    You will find that Dan Hannebery is one of the most prolific vote getters currently in the AFL. Since 2012 he has polled in 27 of his 81 matches which is a rate of 33.3%, well above average. He has polled 68 votes during that same period and has polled 20+ votes twice, including 24 votes in season 2015.

    Joel Selwood Profile

    Joel Selwood will relish having Patrick Dangerfield join him in the Cats midfield in season 2016, relieving his workload significantly. Selwood has polled at least 13 votes every season since 2008 including 27 votes when he was runner up in 2013. During that period he has polled 148 votes, including votes in 69 of 165 matches (41.8%).

    Sam Mitchell Profile

    Here is a man who needs no introduction as he is always near the top of Brownlow Medal markets. Mitchell rates as one of the most prolific Brownlow Medal pollers of all time. Since 2005 he has polled a whopping 192 votes from 213 matches. Of those games he has polled in 89 and that is a strike rate of 41.8%!

    Jack Steven Profile

    The Saints have been starved for success in recent times, but Jack Steven has been a shining light for the club. Last year was his best return on Brownlow Medal night where he polled 12 votes, polling in 6 of his 22 matches. Prior to that he had polled 1, 8, 1 and 3 votes in the four seasons prior. We expect him to be pushing 20 votes in 2016.

    Josh Kennedy Profile

    Sydney superstar Josh Kennedy has enjoyed a meteoric rise to an A-Grade midfielder over the past half-decade. Since 2012 he has been a prolific Brownlow Medal poller. During this period he has polled 79 votes from 84 matches, at almost a vote per game. Of those 84 games, he polled in 34 of those which is a rate of 39.5%.

    Luke Shuey Profile

    Luke Shuey is a Brownlow Medal longshot, but he did have a fine season for West Coast in 2016. His record in the Brownlow Medal is the cause of some concern though, having only polled 44 career votes in his six seasons at AFL level. Shuey has polled in 22 of his 103 career games which is a return of 21%. He will need to improve significantly to win this year.
