With 2 rounds to go, it’s down to a 3-horse race. Grundy currently leads by 4 from Jake Lloyd and Josh Dunkley. He needs 2 votes in the last 2 rounds to ensure he at least shares in the medal.

Dunkley still paying $67 for the Brownlow just quietly.

His back half of the year has been ridiculous. Over the year he has had 10 games with more than 30 touches. In 7 of those games he’s had at least 5 tackles.

Now Dunkley gets the 3 votes. These 3 votes draws him to within just one vote of Grundy – will it be enough……

Round 18 continued……

No its not – Grundy gets the 3 votes to secure himself the 2019 BBFFL#2 Merv Neagle Medal

Dunkley doesn’t pick up any votes in the last round, so he doesn’t close the gap on Grundy.

Our 2019 Merv Neagle Medallist Brodie Grundy also fails to poll in the last round.

Haha - glad I could provide some amusement. I enjoy doing it.

When we first started this comp back in 2012 this was just something I started doing. Now I have got it down pat it is relatively easy, still a bit of mucking around but not too bad. The good thing is that the data for the players can be used across purposes - ie games played for each club. My only issue is that now after 8 years I have so much data and not enough time to do what I would love to with it.

I was given a spreadsheet with the team handover that had all the results and all the votes etc.
I didn’t have time to deep dive this time around but hopefully for this years trade and draft period.

Surprised at the low vote total for my mob, but I guess that means it’s been a pretty even spread of scorers.
A champion team instead of a team of champions :stuck_out_tongue:

Taranto was the big surprise for me. Didn’t realise he went so large throughout the year.

Sorry it was a little remiss if me to point out that Grundy also won the Merv Neagle in 2018. So it’s back to back medals for him.

I’m sure he will accept your apology.

Great read, Josh Kelly is the only bix not up for trade
