Does anyone really give a shitt about the "Rising Star" thing anyway??
It's all completely subjective, so essentially means sweet fk all IMO.
Magoo will probably be a better player than them all over the long haul, .. or he won't be, and whether you win this award or not, it won't alter the end result one bit.
It's always felt like a bit of a pathetic AFL PR/something else to waffle about bullshit construct to me really, and I could not care less who "wins" it.
One of our stat-o-philes here might do a run down on winners of it and how they rate against their draft peers after 5 years or so to see, .. but I'll wager it does not reflect how a players career will pan out in any meaningful way.
