Crichton Medal Data

Can someone help me and paste in the results of the past 10 Crichtons

Or is there some place to find that data aggregated together?

I’m trying to put together a high level analysis of total votes for players over 10 years.

Let’s say you combine the Crichton And Brownlow votes across 10 years to get an idea of both performance and consistency for players on your list

eg Darcy Parish. How consistently has he performed outside of 2021 season?
Has Andy McGrath been plateauing or even declining?

You could get some interesting data out of it

Where’s the fun in that though?
Let me express me rage in peace got damn it!

You’re new here aren’t you.


Can only find top 10s. Very interesting prospect though. You would of course have to account for games played instead of years if you are trying to measure consistency.

I think you’d be better off scrying pig entrails for meaning than analysing Crichton medal results.

@theDJR may know where it can be located.

Note the use of the word - may.

The only data I can help you with is how many non Essendon ties Joe Daniher wore.


Hey mate yeah we can start with the top 10s, can you paste here or PM me?


And I doubt it’s been fully released across that many years.

Take a look at the Crichton medal Wikipedia page. Very bottom has links to articles back to 2001. Each of which has at least a top 10


I’m not confident that Essendon are competent at managing spreadsheets.

This what I have so far,
analysis of Brownlow medal votes going back to 2012.

Some Observations:
Number of times to poll over 10 votes:

Nic Martin
Devon Smith
Brent Stanton
Dylan Shiel
David Zaka

Darcy Parish
Jobe Watson

5 times; (wow)

Eight freakin times: (amazing)
Zach Merrett

I think it goes to show how far away Zach is from literally everyone else on the team, in terms of high performance and consistency of high performance.

The only one who comes close in this era was Hepps for a stretch of 6-7 years, where he polled above 10 votes 5x.

Obviously you can argue about how the Brownlow ignores defenders, (Both Crichton Defender winners Cale Hooker 2015 = 0 brownlow votes, Jordan Ridley 2020 = 0 brownlow votes) , but as a guide, it’s interesting.

Next I will try to combine it with Crichton data that I can find, to get a more balanced picture.
