    Yeah that is why I doubted it.

    Alex Witherden (Lions) picked up 28 disposals and has had a good few weeks.

    Witherden has been really impressive since coming into the team. For Brisbane's sake, I hope they don't lose him cheaply like they did with Docherty and Yeo.

    Well deserved for Witherden. If Young puts in a similar performance this week he will get it

    How they pick the nominee each week is beyond me.

    Ryan Clarke in the last 4 weeks has had 24, 31, 27 & 25 touches and still no nomination.. If you play for Carlton or a trendy/ interstate team, you're of eligible age and fart in a game you get nominated.

    Carlton's youth must be the envy of the league.

    First season in years we haven't had one let alone two.
    Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them: a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.”- Muhammad Ali
