Thread: Can Papley win a Coleman?

  1. #1

    Can Papley win a Coleman?

    Is there any chance that Tom Papley can be the first small forward since Leigh Matthews to win a Coleman?

    And how often does a Coleman medalist come from a bottom 4 side?

    I hope Paps stays a Swan, but if he does go, will a departing Coleman medalist give us even stronger trade value?

    Well, he's still leading it, so I suppose that it's possible. Though I'll be more enthusiastic when we get some of our bigger forwards back, so he can play in his natural role as a nippy forward pocket, rather than a marking target.

    Interesting there saying he could now be worth two first rounders. Still hope he stays but that’s a decent war chest to go to the draft with

    What's the biggest bag of goals Papley has kicked in a game? If he gets to kick few bags this year it will go a long way towards him winning the Coleman. He is already the most consistent goal kicker in the comp having the longest stretch of kicking weekly goals. Could also be adding All Australian honours with his Coleman!

    Win a Coleman? Usually the small forwards fade out of contention as the season rolls on, but this season is so weird I asked the question - has any Swan ever won a Skilton and a Coleman in the same year?

    Not once.

    In 1934, when Bob Pratt kicked 150 goals to take the VFL goal kicking award (in 3 fewer games than it took Peter Hudson) Pratt asked a committee member why he didn’t win South’s B&F, he was given the response "You're very spectacular but not very effective."

    Only Lockett has won both, albeit in separate years

    5 vs West Coast last year. Great game - 5 for Buddy too - a famous Sunday victory.

    4 on 4 occasions before this weekend, 3 on 9 occasions and 2 on 29 occasions. He is pretty consistent and definitely trending up the last couple of years (quieter in 2018).

    I actually called this about a month ago - but then couldn't work out how to bet on it...

    Thanks for those stats neilfws. Papley should've kicked 5 on Saturday, missed an easy set shot in the 1st quarter.

    80% of players who are winning the coleman at the end of July, go on and win it at the end of the season.

    Yes but July isn’t July this year!
