Brownlow medal – what is it

depite this engaging post by fellow metroblogger zara, i saw a bit of this on tv the other day and i still don’t know what the heck is it.

so what to do? turn to good old trusty wikipedia of course.
Brownlow medal.

ah ok. so that’s what its about. a kind of, “Player’s Player of the year” thing. ok cool.

now this begs the question:
WHY THE HECK IS 3 HOURS OF CONTINOUS VOTING ON TV????

i can understand the significance of the award. but do we really need to see the voting process to such detail?

i assure you, i mean no Aussie Rules Football fans ANY disrespect whatsoever. but if someone would be so kind enough to explain this event a bit clearer, as to what it is and why it done in this way, i would really appreciate it.

    I was once told that its the only opportunity for the wives and girlfriends to flash their cleavages, on tv, that is. Was there any, btw?

    Its mostly become a night to show off dresses and recap great plays during the season. Chris’s Judds girlfriend wore a stunning backless red dress a couple of years ago which made the news.
