AFL FOOTY PAST CHAMPIONS

Our game has a great history. Each year we award some of our players with the following prestigious awards. You will find links leading to some of the most famous awards below.

Click Here .. You can also discuss some of our legends of the game.

Charles Brownlow Medal
The Charles Brownlow Trophy was instituted in 1924 for the "Fairest and Best" player in the VFL home and away season. The trophy itself is an ornate lacquered medallion, no larger than an American silver dollar coin. It has been awarded every year since except the Second World War years of 1942-1945.

It perpetuates the memory of Charles Brownlow, a veteran of over forty years with the Geelong Football Club and the VFL, who died in 1924. Brownlow was playing with Geelong when the original VFL clubs broke with the VFA in 1896; once his playing days were over, he became club secretary there until the year before his death, and also served two years as the League's caretaker president.

The medal is awarded as follows: the field umpires in consultation after each game award six votes; three votes to the best player, two to the second best and one to the third best. These votes are collected and kept by the AFL until the week of the Grand Final, where the votes are counted at a televised reception before viewers from across Australia. The player gaining the most votes from the season is awarded the Brownlow medal.

Should two or more players have the same number of votes then two or more medals are awarded. This replaced a countback system used in 1931-1981, in which ties were broken by counting numbers of "three" votes among the tied players, then "two" votes

John Coleman Medal
The Coleman Medal is awarded to the player who kicks the most goals during the Home and Away Season. The Medal honors John Coleman, a spectacular forward player for Essendon (and later a dual premiership coach of the same club), who many feel would have been the game's greatest ever player, prior to a serious knee injury prematurely ending his playing career. Coleman kicked 537 goals in only 98 games.

Norm Smith Medal
The Norm Smith Medal is awarded to the player voted best on ground during that season's Grand Final. Norm Smith was a player for Melbourne and Fitzroy, and coached South Melbourne as well as the previous two teams. He coached Melbourne to an incredible 6 Premierships between 1955 and 1964. The Medal was first instituted in 1979.
