Talking Points: round 18

Player of the week: Jonathan Brown (140)
Brown scored a massive 140 this week, kicking a total of 6.6 in the Lions’ win against the hard-to-beat Kangaroos. That makes it the third week in a row he has scored over 110, and makes him an attractive captain proposition. King Brown almost doubled his output from his last outing against the only Mexican in the AFL, Michael Firrito.

Biggest Disappointment: Fraser Gehrig (0)
Welcome to the big league Fraser – you can’t play Carlton every week. I don’t care if you are playing on four players… the big G-Train should still be able to score at least one point. At least get a tackle.

Other points of interest:

– The Bulldogs and Saints were not able to get anything out of their game but those with Wayde Skipper sure did.

Daniel Gilmore is spending a bit more time in the ruck now that the Sandiman is out and his score this week (88) illustrates this. I don’t know what is worse, Matt Priddis’ recent form (58) or his haircut…

– Richmond are continuing to play its youngsters with first gamer Angus Graham scoring 34 and ultra impressive second gamer Daniel Connor getting 11 contested possesions and scoring 82 Dream Team points.
