With 6 BOGs from 8 games (she missed 1 round) she again dominated the votes. However, she was far from the dominant player from other years. Individual games, the voting was a lot closer than it was last year.
An alternative breakdown....each player who got a vote from any poster gets a % of that rounds total votes allocated to them. Totals. 14.9: Prespakis (polled in 6 games, for 6 BOGs) 8.0: Vescio (polled in 5 for 1 BOG) 5.9: Harrington (4, 1 BOG) 4.9: Moody (5) 3.3: Hill (3) 3.0: Egan (4) 2.7: Laloifi (2) 2.5: Pound (1 game for 1 BOG) 2.2: O'Dea (1) 1.6: Loynes (2) 1.5: Stevens (2) 1.0: Hosking (1) 0.9: McKay (3) 0.5: McEvoy (2) 0.5: Gee (2) 0.5: Brazzale (2) 0.2: Harris (1)
Setterfield was one of our better players in the pre-season games and he did well against the Tigers. With a bit of luck, he could have kicked 2 goals and the result may have been quite different. He had a poor game against Collingwood, but he wasn't Robinson Crusoe. He then missed the game against Freo and prudent team selection would have had him coming back through the twos. Of course, he was rushed straight back for the Gold Coast game and, although he played a reasonable game, someone has to make way for Williams.
Dow is another one who played well in the pre-season games and did well against the Tigers and was unlucky not to add to his one goal. His form in the next three games wasn't great but he has laid more tackles than most of his teammates.
Williams had to come into the side and one of Dow and Setterfield are the obvious ones to make way for him. That doesn't mean that they're not stiff to miss out.
I'm not convinced that Kennedy is an improvement over Dow or Setterfield. He has done well in his cameo appearances as a lead up forward but disappoints as a midfielder. He probably deserves a game but we can't afford a low possession game from him.
Ok, so don't drop Dow and setters...
Who do you drop to bring in Williams and cover for injuries to Silvagni and parks?
Boy, I like this thread. I often ask people their suck-in movie. This is not necessarily their favourite but the one that comes on and keeps you sucked in until the end. Even though you've watched it a zillion times. For me it's Shawshank. I will deliberately avoid the channel it's on for fear of being "sucked in". Love it.
Shawshank is an easy 'out'.
I'll give you a few.... Seven Silence of the Lambs Beverly Hills Cop trilogy (Eddie is so good) and a more leftfield one.... Before Sunrise.
