Brownlow Medal 2020: Dane Swan Brownlow Twitter, Sportsbet Twitter account, social media reaction, funny tweets
Another year, another raging success on Brownlow Medal night for Collingwood hero Dane Swan, who took over Sportsbet’s Twitter page for a different look at the AFL’s night of nights.
The 2011 Brownlow Medallist was explosive at his best on the footy field, which thankfully for fans has translated to his social media game.
He didn’t shy away from offering some blunt takes on a Brownlow Medal count like no other.

And Melbourne Demons star Clayton Oliver was in his sights.
“Clayton Oliver with a mask on is the best he’s ever looked at a Brownlow,” Swan tweeted.
Next up was Gold Coast Suns rookie sensation and teacher’s pet Matt Rowell, who was briefly seen during the count with Bulldogs paid Marcus Bontempelli and Tom Liberatore.
“Spare a thought for AFL administrators with trouble makers Sam Walsh and Matty Rowell coming through the ranks,” he joked.
“Calling it now, back page of the Herald Sun tomorrow, Matt Rowell and Libba leaving an “entertainment venue” with a kebab in hand at 4:30am.”
The Crows were also in his sights.
Swan was never one to follow the stock standard rulebook as a player, and as a social media user it seemed he was similar.
The Brownlow Medal count has never made for the shortest of nights, and in a year that has felt like a decade, the event was getting to Swan.
After Neale’s win, Swan finished with a tongue-in-cheek tribute to commentary icon Bruce McAvaney, who in 2011 gave one of the longest handshakes in Brownlow Medal history to Swan after his win.
