Hanley nominated in MVP award

Europe

 With the home and away season behind us, all sorts of AFL awards are being announced.  One award growing in stature in recent years is the 2013 Be the Influence AFL Players’ MVP Awards. 

The nominations have been finalised and Irishman Pearce Hanley has been included in the top 54 (see below).  Hanley was one of the omissions from this week’s announcement of the 40 players eligible to be selected in the final 22 of the 2013 Four'N Twenty AFL All Australian Team. 

The winner of the AFL industry’s foremost peer-determined award, the Leigh Matthews Trophy proudly presented by Be the Influence, will be announced on Tuesday September 10 at Peninsula, Docklands in Melbourne.

This year’s list of nominees contains superstars at the top of their game including Gary Ablett Jnr who will be vying for the title for a record fifth time, as well as Scott Pendlebury, Jarryd Roughead, Joel Selwood and Patrick Dangerfield, along with a host of newcomers including Jake Carlisle and Daniel Hannebery.

The AFL Players’ MVP remains the only football award decided by those who know the game best – the players.

Now in its 31st year, the award is more important than ever, according to AFL Players’ CEO Matt Finnis.

“Amongst all of the various awards and accolades provided to players at this time of year; it’s really important the players themselves have a voice.”

“In any industry, you want the respect of your peers. AFL footballers are no different, and the Leigh Matthews Trophy is a great way players can recognise the efforts of those outside their own club.”

AFL Players’ Association President Luke Ball said that while the award continues to grow in stature publicly, it has always been considered one of the highest honours in the game amongst the playing group because it reflects the respect a player has amongst his peers.

“As a player you strive for the respect of your peers, and unlike other awards the MVP is determined by the men who take to the field alongside you each week,” said Ball.

“Players get to see what occurs behind the scenes. From long nights on the track, to game day and the strategic work put into stopping an opposition player, so we are very well positioned to judge the Most Valuable Player in the league.

“The names that feature on the Leigh Matthews’ Trophy represent the very elite of the past 30 years, so to have your name etched alongside players you have grown up idolising would be an incredible honour for any player.”


Other awards presented on the night include:

·         The Robert Rose Most Courageous Award, presented by Fire Ready Victoria

·         Best First Year Player, presented by Be the Influence

·         Best Captain, presented by L’Oreal Men Expert

·         Education and Training Excellence Award, presented by La Trobe Sport

·         Grant Hattam Trophy for Excellence in Sports Journalism, presented by Kelly Hazell Quill Lawyers

 

THE VOTING PROCESS:

The MVP voting is a two stage process, beginning with each player voting for the three teammates he considers to have been the most valuable this season.  Each club’ votes are then tallied to form a nomination list comprising 54 players across the 18 teams.

Then, in the second round of voting, all AFL players vote for their MVP on a 3, 2, 1 basis from amongst the nominees from all 17 other clubs. The votes are tallied, and the player with the highest score wins the honour of MVP.

The 2013 Be The Influence AFL Players’ MVP Award Winners will be announced on Tuesday 10 September at Peninsula, Shed 14 Central Pier, Docklands and will be broadcast exclusively on Fox Footy Channel at 9.30pm.
