Bartel Wins Brownlow

2007 Brownlow Winner

Congratulations to Jimmy Bartel who won the 2007 Brownlow medal by an amazing 29 points, seven points clear of Simon Black, Brent Harvey and Daniel Kerr. He is Geelong’s fifth Brownlow winner. James had been out for the last two games, to get his appendix removed so winning was an enormous feat and proof of his amazing talent. He and Gary Ablett Junior, the second favourite for the Brownlow, were neck and neck during most of the count. Ablett and Bartel scored the highest number of points for two players on any one team.

Bartel will go onto play in the Grand Final on Saturday with the rest of his fellow Cats, and also in the All-Australian selection, one of nine other Geelong players selected. Bartel has been my favourite player for a few years, since I saw him once seated next to me at a Geelong game and he gave me a smile. It has been awesome watching him become one of the greatest players in the league, he held rank of the number 1 player for the entire season. Good luck to him and the rest of the Cats on Grand Final day.. I hope we can bring the flag home!

“We are Geelong, the greatest team of all,

We are Geelong, we’re always on the ball,

We play the game as it should be played,

At home or far away..

Our banners fly high, from dawn til dark,

Down at Kardinia Park!”
