Golden Stubby – Round 9
Gotta be quick with this (one of those days and nights)… I put the call out on Twitter for nominations for this week. It was tough to limit it to 5 with some great performances, but here we go. Goodes, Stevie J, Barlow, The Kedge and Jobe make the cut for this week. Get your vote in now!

Adam Goodes – 147
No only did the dual Brownlow Medalist do a lot to stamp out racism in this country on the weekend, he also had a pretty handy game. 30 disposals and 3 goals was a great effort to kick off Indigenous Round. His actions and how he handled himself deserved another 100 DT points. Respect.
Steve Johnson – 144
With Swanny the Fantasy Pig having a bad time of it, Stevie J is being touted as the new Pig with his DT sluttery on the weekend. 33 disposals, 9 tackles and 7 marks to go with his goal. Massive return after being a late out last week.
Michael Barlow – 149
In the last game of the round, the Freo ball magnet was just that… racking up 32 touches with a massive 11 tackles. Absolute machine. He would have got a few coaches over the line, or in my case, helped them to a respectable score.
Sam Kerridge – 126
The rookie that a few coaches took a punt on delivered this week with a very nice score of 126. It wasn’t just his beast score, it was the way it came – 6 second half goals helped him get his price heading further north.
Jobe Watson – 122
It’s not the biggest score going around for a premium but a lot of coaches threw him up there for a nomination and he makes the 5. With a lot of us wanting to look elsewhere because of his Round 13 bye, he was a great option to bring in with his price bottoming out.
Honorable mentions: Mark Blicavs, Garrick Ibbotson, Matthew Boyd, Koby Stevens, Gary Ablett, David Mundy, Jordan Lewis, Paul Duffield.. and some more – write them in the comments.
