I've been angry since Diesel Williams had 44 touches back in the day, and didn't get a Brownlow vote ..... thanks to that white maggot, John Russo.

Greg Williams, round 10, 1993
Carlton 17.26 (128) v Melbourne 11.8 (74)
While Libba was rewarded with a Brownlow Medal after his stellar season in 1992, Greg Williams was left empty-handed amid controversy the next season. The match that was considered to have lost him the medal was this clash against Melbourne at Princes Park. Williams picked up 44 possessions but failed to gain a vote from umpires John Russo and Murray Bird. Gavin Wanganeen later won the Brownlow Medal with 18 votes. Williams was second with 17. “Perhaps I should have shaved my head,” he said. Williams’s best performance in terms of figures was his game against St Kilda in 1989 in which he picked up 53 possessions.
It's a conspiracy I say ......
