Nobby Clarke Medal - Congratulations to Devon Smith the 2018 Winner


#141

Francis 13th
Smack 15th

Both off the back of limited number of games. Match winners!!!


#142

Francis 13th
McGrath 16th
Langford 18th
Parish 20th
Guelfi 21st
Redman 22nd

Plenty of young talent showing they can be in our best 5 players on the field, and therefore can more than hold their own at this level.


#143

Thanks @redbull for your wonderful contribution to this site. Much appreciated.


#144

Imagine saying that to @Alan_Noonan_10 next year!


#145

Thanks Redbull.

However Langford and Myers finishing equal on 5 votes is a controversial call.
Quite possibly lead to calls for voting reforms by certain “experts”


#146

Great work champ.


#147

Well deserved Dev. Glad he’s ours.

And thanks for your efforts @redbull, I can only imagine the tedium of trying to decipher the various voting methods and aliases used in every vote thread. Well done.


#148

Congrat’s to Devon… Well deserved winner. What a fantastic pick up.


#149

yes and double yes to the first and second points respectively.

thanks @redbull and well done Devon - you Essendon champ


#150

Congratulations to Devon on a great year, where he led by example from the front, and dragged others along in his wake.

Kudos to redbull for taking the time and effort to compile the votes each week, no small task.

During the season l floated the idea of a change in the voting procedure to the Nobby Clarke Medal for 2019. l propose we give 5 votes, as the coaches do each week.

Comments? I am expecting a lot of nays.


#151

Geez CJ, it’s going to take @Alan_Noonan_10 half the week to count up the votes on his abacus as it is without making it more difficult.


#152

Been calling for it for years, … but came to think it was probably hard enough for one dude to total up when there’s 3.

Noonan likely has a fair bit more time on his hands, … so maybe he could go the extra effort, … and therefore we could do just that?? :thinking:


#153

Worth a thought. Techniques are all the same.

Hopefully no shockers when you’re struggling to find a third player to include…or even a second.


#154

Put a spine in Essendon


#155

Issue with 5 players is their will likely be more random selections which makes it more time consuming. You will see once I send through the spreadsheet and start collating that you can get on a run which means things can be quicker.


#156

I probably would have built my own spreadsheet. I’m pretty used to that sort of thing.

I’ve been updating my dad’s stamp collection with catalogue values, and you quickly develop faster ways of doing it.


#157

Whatever Noonan comes up with we can be confident:

  1. The syntax will be perfect.
  2. The calculations accurate.
  3. The feedback clear and precise.

#158

And the people still voting for Lovett to be ridiculed.


#159

Would have thought Belly would have polled a little better.

Anyway, thanks to all involved. It’s a great effort.

One suggestion for @Alan_Noonan_10 might be to have a cut off date or only count the first 150 vote entries or something like that??? Just an idea…


#160

I’d think 5pm Thursday after the game.
