For those who need a refresher on how our Brownlow vote prediction system works, we allocate 6 votes per game so that our total votes are the same as the official 3-2-1 system, however we split those votes as we see fit . potentially more than three players. Some games are really hard to decide which way the votes will go, so a better predictive model is to split the performances and allocate half the points to each player when in doubt. So, for example, if two players dominate and it is too difficult to split their performance, 2.5 votes are given to each, and the remaining 1 vote is given to other player(s). This will give us a predictive total closer to your actual total, rather than guessing. We can then form a ‘range’ for each player (i.e. a minimum and maximum that we think players can poll) with the thought behind this that variations of half the votes will balance out in the long run.
