1995 Brownlow Medal
|1995 Brownlow Medal|
|Winner||Paul Kelly (Sydney)
For the first time, the State Government legalised betting on the Brownlow Medal, a move which concerned some due to the high potential for corruption. The pre-count favourites for the medal were Wayne Carey (3/1), Wayne Campbell (7/2), Peter Matera (10/1) and James Hird and Craig Bradley (each 12/1). Eventual winner Paul Kelly was considered a 25/1 outside chance.
