There’s no clear winner this year.

Very close between Merrett, Shiel, Stringer and Saad imo.

McKenna might be a smokey. He’s had a very good, consistent year.

Most improved should be between Parish and Redman.

1. Shiel
2. Merrett
3. Saad
4. Stringer
5. McKenna
6. Heppell
7. Parish
8. McGrath
9. Hurley
10. McDonald-Tipungwuti

Says that the coaches either thought he could have done a lot more OR he wasn't following team instructions very well.

PS for anyone who attended (yes Daisy, I am thinking of you) was JD in attendance? Oh... Just checked on Bomberblitz and based on a bad photo of JD on the (ahem) red and black carpet, there is specculation he is leaving because posters cannot tell if he is wearing the EFC tie or not (about 100 posts, some serious, I kid you not) :-s

I watched the live stream and it was like watching a year 12 production of the Brownlow count.

I must admit Daisy,I found my Club’s Butcher Medal Night a little bit trying.Despite it being declared The Players’ night,the boys were a little bit over the top.Not wildly excessive,but it got a bit much at times,especially for older folk me reckons!

After the presentations,things settled down to a better tone,with conversations aplenty on Hopefully how our Club can be just that extra bit better onfield.

Grassy, did you ever end up finding out from your long time friend about the story with Willie?

Nah,the conversations were solely centred around us that night,mate.

Willie was as far away as Pluto and for now,probably will be.

7WestCoastMedia will give us their Cinstant BULLSHIT,but nothing will Free Willie here. :roll:

Most inspirational person...………………McDonald/Tippa would it be possible for Walla to teach several of our players about humility, good grace and appreciation. This bloke has more ticker than most of the team. Heart, it is the beginning of everything.
