Frownlow Medal Nominees Announced.

The Frownlow Medal will soon be awarded to the most outstanding off-field footballer of the 2016 season.

Judges will choose from a long list of alcohol abusers, social media failures, wife beaters, public urinators, criminals, racists, misogynists, drug addicts…and a Rooster who’s into dogs.

The Frownlow Medal is awarded to the player whose off-field demeanour epitomises the values of the modern day footballer and draws attention to the status of footballers as role models to young Australians. It covers Australia’s four major football codes; the National Rugby League (NRL), Australian Football League (AFL), the A-League (Football) and Rugby Union’s Super Rugby competition. The first medal was awarded to Sydney Roosters and New Zealand representative Shaun Kenny-Dowall in 2015.

The Frownlow Medal Hall of Fame honours former players and players who received media attention in previous seasons, for similarly scandalous behaviour, and its inductees include Ben Cousins and Todd Carney.

Below is a table of the nominees for the Frownlow Medal, as of September 26.
