The AFL is set to meet on Tuesday to discuss what will be done with the Brownlow, after Watson announced on Friday that he will hand the medal back the league, following the Court of Arbitration for Sport’s decision to ban Watson and 33 of his teammates from the 2016 season following the club’s 2012 supplements program.

  1. Absolutely… Watson is a convicted drug cheat, whether you believe it or not, it IS a fact. Just as they do in the Olympics when a drug cheat is unearthed, they hand it on to the next in line. In this case it is Mitchell and Cotchin. There is no other way.

  2. absolutely, mitchell and cotchin were voted the best and FAIREST that year as jobe was ineligible,.. seems simple to me. Dont see how its fair if they dont get a medallion after Jobe is convicted and ruled ineligible for the use of performance enhancing drugs.

  3. Might as well be null and void, Jobe got to receive the medal on the night. He got the celebrations, the grand final parade, the photos, the memories, the publicity etc. What will the others get? Here mate, take this… who would want it like that?

  4. Jobe was a worthy winner , he actually personifies the real meaning of the Brownlow , an * against the name will do , as a Richmond supporter I have a lot of respect for this man
    Jobe , name the place , my shout champion

  5. If they can take jobe’s away for him, then they should take ben cousin’s away from him.
    But I feel for the AFL to stop making a mess with everything, they should just let jobe keep it.

  6. No , bloody joke if they get it , non event that year , shouldn’t Watson s votes be given the other vote getters in his games and some of them would have been ineligible , can the whole Brownlow that year
