They know what they say about statistics … they are always right and incredibly predictive no matter how you use them.
And this is a sucker.
The last seven Brownlow medalists first spotted by Reddit users all grew up in a suburb or city that didn’t have McDonald’s.

And the 2020 medal favorite, Lachie Neale, grew up without one too.Yes. We know. Sorry if you didn’t sit down when you read this.
Well, to be fair, there are over 970 Maccas restaurants across the country and there’s something close to 4000 suburbs.
We’d, of course, expect restaurants to focus on more populous areas – and most of the recent winners happened to be out of the country.
But that’s still a little weird, isn’t it?

There’s one other thing we need to point out – it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly where some of these guys grew up. We use a mix of available information about their childhood as well as their junior footy clubs. But let’s go through them.
Gary Ablett (2013): Aus Modewarre (small town southwest of Geelong). Not a McDonald’s.
Matt Priddis (2014): Grew up in Manjimup, a town of around 4,500 in southwest Washington, before moving to Perth as a teenager. No McDonald’s in the former, although there may be a few in the latter.
Nat Fyfe (2015 and 2019): Famous from Lake Grace (town of approx. 550 residents in WA Wheatbelt). Not a McDonald’s.
Patrick Dangerfield (2016): Also famous from Moggs Creek (hamlet with approx. 90 inhabitants on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria). Not a McDonald’s.
Dustin Martin (2017): From Campbells Creek (town near Castlemaine, 40 km south of Bendigo). Not a McDonald’s.
And then there’s Tom Mitchell (2018), which is difficult because he grew up in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs.
The Hawks superstar played his junior footy with Ashburton, who surprisingly has no McDonald’s within its confines, despite being very close to a couple.
However, he may have grown up in Camberwell based on at least one source … who doesn’t currently have a McDonalds, but at one point in time.
There is a bit of confusion Lachie Neale (2020 favorite) too.
Neale played his junior footy in Kybybolite (a town of fewer than 200 people near the border between South Africa and Victoria) but went to school in nearby Naracoorte. There’s a Maccas in Naracoorte, but there wasn’t one when Neale was growing up.
But wait, wait, we’re hearing some breaking news. Fellow 2020 Brownlow Candidate Christian Petracca grew up in Warrandyte … where there are no McDonalds.
We’re through the mirror folks.
There is only one way to solve all of this. Can the Brownlow hosts please ask who is winning and what previous winners are there tonight if they grew up in a place with a Maccas? This is very important. Thank you very much.
