Gary Ablett has capped off another sensational season by unsurprisingly taking out the inaugural Gold Coast Suns Club Champion award on Friday night at Southport Sharks.
The Suns skipper shocked absolutely nobody by polling in all but one of the 20 games he played this year, ending up in first place with 196 votes ahead of vice-captain Nathan Bock (138 votes) and veteran midfielder Michael Rischitelli (100 votes).
Boom youngster David Swallow (98 votes) and Collingwood discard Danny Stanley (95 votes) rounded out the top five.
It is Ablett's third club best and fairest award, having taken out Geelong's Carji Greeves Medal twice before - first in 2007 and in a tie with Corey Enright in 2009.
In another stellar season, Ablett averaged 30 possessions and just under seven clearances per game and is currently a $15.00 chance to win a second Brownlow Medal, according to TAB Sportsbet.
As one of the elite players of the competition, Ablett will not go unnoticed by the umpires, although the fact Gold Coast won just three games for the year will go against him.
The two other place-getters, Bock and Rischitelli, were both recognised for their impressive form throughout the course of 2011.
Bock - a surprising omission from the All-Australian squad - was often deployed as a loose defender playing with Adelaide but capped off his transformation into one of the competition's best out-and-out full-backs this year and polled accordingly.
Third-placed Rischitelli left with two other awards - the 'Iron Man' award for the player who displayed the most 'desire indicators' or one percenters during the season, and the Most Professional award as judged by the club's strength and conditioning staff.
Code-hopper Karmichael Hunt picked up the Most Improved award after impressing in his first season as an AFL player, while Jacob Gilbee was the Suns' NEAFL Player of the Year and Alik Magin took out their Community award.
