Should the premiership Cup be named after Ron Barassi?

Thought it was pretty self-explanatory. They are individual awards within a team game. They don't carry the same status as the premiership. The premiership is the ultimate goal, has always been the ultimate goal since football began. To name it after one individual is elevating that person to a status as big as the game itself. Doesn't seem right to me.

I think it's OK with individual awards, it's an acknowledgement of their (the person the award is named after) contribution.

If it needs a name other than Premiership Cup

Call it the Dustin Martin Chalice of Greatness.

But if its between Ron Barrassi Cup or the Sportsbet Multi Cup

I take the former.

Im actually surprised they havnt called it The Darcy Moore trophy already,

Great memorial to the legend. No coincidence today's temp is 31 deg....

If Warnie got his name on the Southern Stand, then change the Northern Stand to Barassi.

I heard recently that there’s already a Ron Barassi medal. It’s for the captain of the premiership team. I never knew.

There’s already a Barassi medal for the Premiership Captain.
The Premiership coach gets the Jock McHale medal.

The best player of the finals already gets the Gary Ayres medal
And best forward in the finals gets the Castagna medal
