While the Lions look to have moved on from their 71-point preliminary final defeat to Geelong quite quickly to enjoy some post-season drinks, one Brisbane young gun Zac Bailey looks to have seen his Sunday night spoilt among all the Brownlow Medal celebrations.

The Lions livewire and his teammates gathered to watch the count, which saw Carlton's Patrick Cripps awarded with his maiden Brownlow Medal after polling 29 votes, one ahead of Brisbane's Lachie Neale.

And while Neale might've thought he was hard-done-by to miss a vote here or there, it was Bailey that gave the best response after failing to land maximum votes for one of his own dominant performances.

Bailey's Round 6 performance against Gold Coast saw the 22-year-old awarded with the Marcus Ashcroft Medal, seen as the best-afield in the QClash.

The Lions' midfield-forward hybrid booted six goals from 17 disposals to lift his side to victory, however the umpires seem to have seen his standing in the game a little differently.

Bailey was awarded two Brownlow votes for the performance, with teammate Jarryd Lyons, who recorded 30 disposals, 10 tackles and a goal, was voted best-on-ground.

In a post to Instagram during Sunday's count, retired teammate Mitch Robinson caught Bailey's shock to see he was handed the two votes after "telling the boys you’re guaranteed 3 Brownlow votes after 20 and 6 snags".

The footage shows Bailey storm off in shock, while Lyons commented "sorry bro" on Robinson's post.

Bailey would end the night with five votes, with Neale leading the club overall with a tally of 28.

Midfielder Hugh McCluggage managed to poll 14 votes, while Lyons finished third for Brisbane with 17.
