It is a comparable effort with Dustin Martin in 2017, who gained the Brownlow with a report 36 votes.
For Neale to tally 31 votes (polling in 11 matches) in a shortened season is nothing wanting outstanding. It was his capability to safe the utmost three votes so typically that ensured his coast-to-coast victory. Plainly, the umpires love him! That is unsurprising for a footballer who performs below the noses of the on-field officers.
Earlier than the rely, 25 votes was thought-about a powerful return for Neale. And that might have gained too. Greater than 30 votes is simply fairly outstanding.
He is such a humble winner, too. The ball magnet spoke properly (after he needed to put the medal round his personal neck!) about how he is so grateful to play within the AFL. Good to listen to.
