    2018 version - Complete joke, yet again.



    Jazz Tevega's mum wouldn't have even voted for him. And she named him "Jazz" FFS, so we know her judgement is spot on.

    Josh Jackson is vanilla icecream in the most disappointing team of 2018. Ordinary personified.

    Fergo? Cunts a sex offender. Stop celebrating him. Didn't deserve the award anyway.

    BJ and Brooks getting anywhere near an award is a deadset gee up.

    And RTS? Fullback and the Dally M? What? He scored 12 points all year and averaged 1 assist every 3 games. And that's the Dally M winner? Voting system clearly needs an overhaul

    A few strange selections indeed.

    Really the interchange player shouldn't be an award.

    Josh jackson??? Did he even play this year??

    And yes not sure how RTS won the Dally M award (although the bookies seemed to know though.....shock horror).
    Having said that, good luck to the bloke and that haka at the end was a great moment.

    Also, I know the women's comp is coming in a bit late (compared to the AFL) and is copping a bit of flack but I also thought the speech by the ex-jillaroo (not sure her name) was a pretty good moment also.

    Didn't RCG win interchange player of the year last year and he only was on the bench the last 4 games?'

    The Fullbacks and halves award really needs to be changed!

    That Haka was awesome. Disappointed for Ponga but he's class and he'll win a few before his career is over. He's got a great head on his shoulders and missed a handful of games and could have still nearly won speaks of how good he is

    If Ponga played the last few weeks he probably would have won it. But if Pearce hadn't of missed a big chunk of the season he might not have got as close as he did. Pearce got a lot of points given how many games he missed.

    The thing Ponga has going for him is how much improvement he has left in him. It's scary to think how good he could be in a year or two.

    pearce was close too..
    if both play whole seasons then they might go 1 and 2.
    RTS the best player in the comp ... that'll do me. He would be lucky to be in the top 5 fullbacks in the comp let alone the best player. Congrats to him but even he would know hes not the best fullback let alone the best player

    Jackson?
    BJ?

    Stop it, just stop it? And massive Q over RTS with the top gong.

    Also, what price Hunt pipping Cook for the Aus number 9 jersey? Got the gong in the PMs side so may be an indicator of which way he will go for Aus, which would make quite a mockery of the position in my view.

    A direct result of the rest of the team being shit, same for Brooks.

    Cook is a lock mate.

    If the Warriors/Tigers can not win a game unless RTS/Brooks play well, is that not at least a somewhat reasonable definition of them being good players.

    Part of the problem is not so much the voting system but also the votes each week sometimes appear a bit random as to who gets awarded points.

    ABC Grandstand use the same voting system and Cameron Munster won their award

    If there was a larger group of voters it would remove some of the discrepancies. I'd like to see all 16 coaches vote on every game.

    The system is at the discretion of the judges.
    There are always people who will disagree with the judges no matter what the decision.

    RTS played well throughout the year and was one of the stars in his team.
    Was he the best overall player in the comp? Maybe. Maybe not.

    Yeah it's a fair lottery and without wasting time scrutinising every call, I did have a look at the Lurker's (it was a Google search.....don't judge me) Round 25 points last night when RTS was sitting one behind Ponga.

    I can't fully remember the game (which is why I looked last night) but Warriors won 20-16 over the Raiders and stats wise RTS didn't produce his usual machine like performance.
    Lurker gave him a point behind Paasi and Papali.......Dally M judge gave him the 3 points.

    We have 48 bloody referee's adjudicating every match.
    Not sure why we don't just copy the AFL's tried, tested and well respected Brownlow system and let them pick after each game.
    They are also meant to be impartial, whereas some of the Dally M panel are blokes that have played with some of the players.

    Or worse - currently coach them. Surely its a huge conflict of interest to have Joey on the Dally M judging panel, when he works as a halves coach with a couple teams? But Ruan can't vote on them because she watched a game on TV and not live in person. Right.

    She did, but they ended up cancelling her votes and getting Alexander or someone who was at the game to vote instead.
