Essendon, Sydney and Port Adelaide are the fourth batch of clubs to unveil their AFL Players’ Association MVP Award nominees for 2017, ahead of the awards on Tuesday, September 12.
The nomination for the MVP Award is a two-stage process. The first involves players nominating three teammates for the award, before three nominees from every club are presented to the wider playing group for a vote to decide the winner. Players cannot vote for their own teammates in stage two of the process.
Alongside the Most Courageous and Best First Year award nominees, which were revealed last week, the Bombers, Swans and Power playing groups have nominated the three players they believe are their most valuable.
