C. Judd

"Don't tell me you actually watch this crap?" seems to be the response I receive when I tell people I enjoy watching the Brownlow Medal coverage. It's true. I like the round by round season recap, highlights of the great marks and goals, Cyril Rioli dancing around opponents with ease, vision of a fat guy spilling his 4x20 down the front of his T-shirt...and of course, the typical Collingwood supporter stereotype with no teeth screaming at an umpire with spittle running down his chin.

And who doesn't like playing the ol' name game on Brownlow night. I'll chuckle when Andy D reads "C. Ling", cast my mind back a decade or so when we had S. Loewe and S. Hocking running around, and wait with much anticipation for Karmichael to get a vote. (See our current poll and vote for you favourite Brownlow name).

Last year though I considered switching off. Why Dane Swan agreed to take part in the 'could he be this year's winner?' rubbish is beyond me. The red carpet guff is insanely boring – these guys are footballers and their partners, not Sam Worthington or Jennifer Hawkins. And this "C. Judd" crapola! As an insanely one-eyed Collingwood tragic the last thing I want to hear all night is "C. Judd". He's a great of the game, had a quality 2011 season, and would be a deserving least this year he's avoided any ugly on-field incidents that may cast a shadow over whether he's the fairest as well as the best.

So I'll be tuned in watching again this year. I'll be going crazy on Twitter (follow Chubba and I at @tacklenappy), and I'll be praying that Pendles gets enough votes to eclipse "C. Judd". Oh, and if anyone gets their hands on the Powerpoint presentation (you know the one), please send it my way.

Bucky is a proud triple dad to three girls aged eight and under (Bookworm, Foghorn and Boo). He left the full time corporate world in late 2012 and he's not sure whether he's a SAHD or a WAHD, but either way he's spenidng more time at home with his family. Once upon a time Bucky played guitar for a garage band, now he can only play nursery rhymes.
