    We have a 3 way tie for the MSD Lucky Find: Hugh Greenwood, Jack Sinclair and Aaron Mullett.
    I have a few ideas of resolving this tie:
    • Award the title to all 3 players (like in the Brownlow)
    • Award the title to the highest average out of the 3 (like in the Giant Tap)
    • Have 1 more round to break the tie.

    Weeeellll this is an interesting issue to have. I like the idea of highest average, because it shows the player was more valuable to their team. But then maybe it should actually be aggregate score from games played, as a true indication of worth to the team.

    I'll have a look at both...
    Hugh Greenwood: Av. 86.6, score Post-MSD: 550
    Jack Sinclair: Av. 81.5, score Post-MSD: 596
    Aaron Mullett: Av. 81.13, score Post-MSD: 610

    And this here is why averages alone shouldn't count. Points win matches, not averages.

    Aaron Mullett contributed the most to the team so he wins the MSD Lucky Find

    Good decision in my opinion!

    Not so in my opinion, By that reasoning you are saying the bloke who can play 20 games averaging 70 is a better "lucky find" than the bloke who play 13 games averaging 107, and then gets injured....

    However the judges decision is final and accepted....:D:D:D:D

    Actually no chops, because 20x70 = 1400 while 13x107 = 1391 (maybe you picked a bad example!!!)
    What we're saying is that the player who scores the most points for the team is the most valuable - it makes sense to me!

    nah mate the example is fine. I'm not very good at getting my point across. I understand what you're saying that 1400 is better than 1391 and that's fine. But I'd rather have the bloke av 107 in my team, as a lucky find, than the bloke av 70, as a lucky find.
    And I'didn't vote in the poll and it appears 5 other people agree with me..
    Guess we'll just have to agree to disagree....;);)

    I only heard @JPK's idea of awarding for most points contributed after I set up the poll... might set up another poll though for fairness. Sinclair won the tiebreaker round so all 3 have a winning condition (with Mullett's being later realised) and the winner's winning condition will in future be used to resolve ties.
