It's better but I'm just not into the one game vote sample size swaying things. Specially with origin players missing games and one man team vs team with better players.

Hard to get right but better than it was, perhaps a system that takes both individual games and a retrospective analysis of the year into account? Don't know how that's achieved through.

Fair enough. I agree to an extent.

Just on the impact of Origin - To allow for the stand-down rounds during the State of Origin period, each player's best 21 point-receiving matches are taken into account when determining the final points for each player.

As I mentioned in another thread, it also doesn't allow for someone who is consistently good all season but does not figure in Dally M points vs someone who plays a handful of great games but is then rubbish for the rest of the year. Voting only caters for the (supposed) best three players on ground, not the players who performed poorly.

Anyway, imperfect system that I think they have improved... Back to discussing the god like figure that is Cam.

Can we add 'most iconic bum chin' to the list of His accolades?

On another note it's great to see Cam say once his career has finished he and his family will stay living in Melbourne. No doubt he'll play a huge part in the club post football and keep that strong culture going for many years to come. Most def the GOAT
