Premiership Race Down to 3?Thursday April 19th

Could the 2018 AFL Premiership race be down to just three teams? Well, if recent history is any guide, then the answer is yes! Since season 2008, the eventual premier spent 100% of that season inside the top eight, with the exception of Hawthorn (91.3%) in season 2013. So far in season 2018, just the three teams have spent all four rounds inside the top eight; GWS Giants, Port Adelaide and Hawthorn. % of season eventual premier spent in Top 8 2008 - 100% 2009 - 100% 2010 - 100% 2011 -...

Round 4 VotesThursday April 19th

Round 4 votes are in and there was plenty of movement at the top of the 2018 Phantom Brownlow Medal leaderboard. Let's take a look. The big mover was Brodie Grundy. The Collingwood big man has been in a rich vein of form over the last three rounds and was instrumental in Round 4, getting the Magpies over the line in an upset win. Grundy has moved up to outright third position on our leaderboard with 7 votes. But it is possible he...

Round 3 VotesThursday April 19th

With Round 3 votes for the 2018 Phantom Brownlow Medal now in, our leaderboard is starting to take shape, even this early on. Hawthorn ace Tom Mitchell has had the best start to a season we can remember. After accumulating 54 and 40 disposals in Round 1 and Round 2 respectively, he backed up this week with 42 disposals. He has taken his tally to 9 votes and now has a 3 vote lead over second place Nat Fyfe. Fyfe looks set to poll 3 votes...

Round 2 Votes Thursday April 19th

Tom Mitchell cemented his place at the top of our leaderboard with yet another best on field display for Hawthorn. After collecting an AFL record 54 disposals in Round 1 last weekend, he backed that up with another 40 disposals this week, continuing his hot run of form. His odds for the Brownlow Medal have drastically shortened as well, so now may be the time to jump on board the Mitchell bandwagon before the odds shorten again. However, it would take a brave...

Round 1 VotesFriday March 30th

Round 1 votes are now in the system, and what an interesting opening round to the 2018 season it was. The big talking point was prodigal son Gary Ablett returning to the Cattery and starring in first game back. He collected 39 disposals and it was as though he had never been away. You'd expect him to poll 3 votes, but partner in crime Joel Selwood was eye catching. Dustin Martin showed no complacency either. He took off from where he left off last season, but is...

Can Dusty Go Back to Back?Thursday March 15th

History is against Richmond superstar Dustin Martin to win back-to-back Brownlow Medals in 2018. Martin was the runaway leader last year smashing all sorts of records. He became the first player in AFL history to win a Brownlow Medal, Norm Smith and Premiership all in the one season. He also became the first player to score 36 votes, which is now a record in the 3-2-1 vote era. So dominant he was, that he polled in 14 of his 22 matches. But given...
