    Dally M is a joke. I had a look at last rounds votes.

    All ex players vote on their clubs games. Not at all acurate. Greg Alexander give Nathan Smith a point and he did nothing against the Bulldogs. Trent Waterhouse scored 2 tries but nothing special - 3 points.

    What's the harm in asking the ref who they thought played the best?

    Journos will assume bias and refs would come under scrutiny

    Remember Bill Harrigan and his tips last year?

    I never knew it was only one person who made the selections for each game. I already thought the system was poor, this makes it worse. Gorden Tallis as a judge, that's awful.

    RLW's system is better, or have all the judges pick their top players at the end of the season & tally up the results. Either way I care more about team results like winning a premiership.

    It worked for many years and there was never any controversy like that. Anything has to be better than the Daily Telegraph journalists deciding it ...

    Refs wouldn't say who they picked... it would be closed from Round 1.

    Refs/players/coaches should be the ones voting, they are the ones who know the game. Half the journos these days know nothing about the game. E.g. a player does one extraordinary play, so they give him the 3 votes, whereas a player toughs it out all game makes 50+ tackles and they dont get rewarded. Same thing happens in the NFL, MVP always goes to a QB or RB. Defensive players hardly ever get it.

    It should be like the AB Medal voting system.

    It isn't journos voting, it's ex-players.

    My bad :lol: but all the people seem to be involved with the media though, like tallis and Alexander. Who else judges games?

    But one persons veiw isnt enough for a fair indication of best player of the year. And somebody said Greg Alexander did the panthers game? thats an absolute joke to be doin your ex-team.

    I actually enjoy Tallis. Although he struggles to speak, He offers good insight to the game he dominated.

    He knows nothing about Knights players. Which i can understand, but then he is bias towards us. Whatever he says favours our opposition in some way. Even if we score, he goes on about how unlucky the defenders were or some bull****.

    Tallis has no idea but compared to Pearce and Freeman he's Phil Gould
