For those who need a refresher on how our Brownlow voting system works, we assign 6 votes per game so that our total votes are the same as the official 3-2-1 system, however we break up those votes as we see fit across potentially more than three players. Some games are really tough to call which way the votes will go, so a better predictive model is to split performances and assign half points to each player where there is doubt. So for example if two players dominate and it's too hard to split their performance, they are given 2.5 votes each, with the remaining 1 vote given to another player(s). This will give us a predictive total closer to their true total, rather than guessing. We can then form a 'range' for each player (i.e. a min and max we think players can poll) with the thinking behind this that the variations from the half votes will even out over the long term.

Richmond 5.7.37 def by Geelong 16.8.104
The Cats continued their dominant 2019 with a big win over Richmond on Friday Night footy at the MCG. You’d have to imagine that the Cats will take all six votes on offer here due to the demolition of the Tigers on their home ground. Patrick Dangerfield is odds on for the three votes after a 38 disposal, one goal night while Mitch Duncan (34 disposals, 1 goal), Tim Kelly (32 disposals, 1 goal) and Tom Hawkins (4 goals) will likely duel it out for the remaining three votes.
Patrick Dangerfield – 3
Mitch Duncan - 2
Tim Kelly – 0.5
Tom Hawkins – 0.5
Carlton 11.12.78 def Brisbane 9.9.63
The Blues saluted new interim coach David Teague with a win against the Lions at Marvel Stadium on Saturday. After traling by as many as 37 points, the Blues fought back andkicked eight goals to just three in the second half to claim a 15 point win. Patrick Cripps continued his onslaught on the AFL with another best on ground performance with 38 touches and 4 goals. No question of ‘will Cripps get maximum in a Blues loss?’ here either. Lachie Neale (31 disposals, 1 goal) had big numbers but could miss the votes in favour of Sam Walsh (32 disposals, 12 marks) and Ed Curnow (30 disposals).
Patrick Cripps – 3
Sam Walsh – 2
Lachie Neale – 0.5
Ed Curnow – 0.5
Gold Coast 11.6.72 def by North Melbourne 14.15.99
The Roos continued their horror form in front of the sticks, kicking 14.15 but still managed to pick up a respectable away win over the Suns at the Gold Coast. Jack Ziebell was superb in his 200th game, racking up 28 touches and kicking two goals. Ben Cunnington (23 contested possessions) was instrumental in the midfield once again but has gone unnoticed in the past. Jared Polec (23 disposals, 1 goal) was great off half back while youngster Will Brodie (29 disposals, 1 goal) was the shining light for the Suns.
Jack Ziebell – 3
Will Brodie – 2
Jared Polec – 0.5
Ben Cunnington – 0.5
Adelaide 12.10.82 def GWS 9.7.61
Adelaide picked up a great home win over GWS on Saturday night, moving to 5th on the ladder with a 7-5 record. Really tough match to pick out the votes here as there were a few key standout players for GWS but Adeialde played well as a team. Matt Crouch picked up 34 touches while his brother Brad had 31 and a goal. Matt was arguably the more influential of the two but we think the three votes will go to Giant Tim Taranto (36 disposals, 1 goal), who was easily the best player for GWS. Josh Kelly (34 disaposals, 2 goals) was also dominant.
Tim Taranto – 2.5
Matt Crouch – 2.5
Brad Crouch – 0.5
Josh Kelly – 0.5
Sydney 18.8.116 def West Coast 10.11.71
Sydney looked like a different outfit on Saturday night to the one that lost six of their first seven games of the season. They punished the Eagles from start to finish, claiming a 45 point win to keep their chances of playing finals alive. Buddy Franklin (5 goals) wound back the clock in a dominant display while Tom Papley (27 disposals, 5 goals) was arguably the most influential player on the ground. As usual, Luke Parker was a bull in the midfield and is well loved by the umpires.
Tom Papley – 3
Lance Franklin – 2
Luke Parker – 1
Collingwood 15.8.98 def Melbourne 7.15.57
Despite a small charge by the Demons at the start of the fourth quarter, the Pies were able to hold out for a 41 point win in the Queens Birthday clash. Not too difficult to decipher this one as Adam Treloar (34 disposals, 1 goal) was heralded as best on ground after the match. The midfielder should pick up maximum votes as Steele Sidebottom (27 disposals, 1 goal) and Jaidyn Stephenson (19 disposals, 3 goals) battle it out for the minor placings.
Adam Treloar – 3
Steele Sidebottom – 1.5
Jaidyn Stephenson – 1.5
