Inside information?

There had been some controversy about the security of the result in the count leading up to the announcement of the winner of The Brownlow Medal - won by Malcolm Blight of North Melbourne with 22 votes.

Football legend Ron Barassi was coach of the team at the time. He had first worn the Number 31 jumper during his games with Melbourne - Demons and continued to be identified with it as he moved through his illustrious football career.
