Patrick Cripps

Patrick Cripps was the shining light in what was Carlton's worst season since 1901. He emerged as an A-Grade midfielder and broke an AFL record for most contested possessions in a season.

He is the type of player that umpires notice. A hard at it midfielder who is under every pack and collecting plenty of the ball. We have him finishing top five, as do most media awards throughout the country.

There is one glaring problem working against Cripps winning the Brownlow Medal though, it's the fact he plays for a team that won just 2 games for the year, many of those being hammerings.

Also worth noting is he polled 18 votes in 2016, so he has proved he can poll votes in a poor team. He matches up to an archetypal Brownlow winner in almost every stat category.
