The home and away season has officially finished. Who do you think the umpires have selected as the AFL's best and fairest for 2023?

Please only select more than 1 player if you think that there will be multiple winners (you can select up to 3).

Please select who you think will win, not who you want to win.

I think that C Petracca will win, but it will be close between him and Daicos. I'd love Timmy Taranto to win, but he has no chance.

Butters for me, Bont will lose pts to Libba and English.
Naicos missing the last few games has probably cost him.
That logic doesn't work... Rozee will poll more votes than Liberatore and English combined.

I fear that Daicos may miss out due to his injury, but I’m erring on him still being the best individual pick.

Played in 4 more wins than Bont even with the missed games, outpolled him last year and probably improved more than him, and faces less internal competition for votes than many. Also a young and high profile player, which I think helps in the Brownlow.

I think Butters has a pretty strong case but round 21 could be his undoing. Round 22, 23 and 24 he's likely to poll 3 votes each game but in round 21, he was Port's best but they lost.

Geelong's best was probably Miers or Stewart and even though it was a 12 point loss, I don't think the umps necessarily give out 3 votes to a losing team. At best, he might sneak away with 1 but Ollie Henry also kicked 4 in that game.

Bont is likely to poll for 3 votes in Round 21, but lost both round 22 and 23. Round 23 was the Eagles loss and he was huge in that game, so might sneak a 2 or a 1.

I know that he won't win, but where do you think Timmy Taranto will finish in the count? Top 5? Top 10?

Hard to say. His first half of the season was fantastic and he was definitely a Brownlow favourite, but we also did lose a majority of the games in which he played well in. Round 5, 6 and 7 for example, he had 34, 32 and 33 touches but we lost all of them comfortably and he was probably 2nd best on ground. If he can poll a bunch of 1 and 2s in those losses then it'll go a long way. I'd say he probably finishes top 10.

I'll be mildly surprised if he gets top 10, and very surprised if he gets top 5.
Thank you both for your input. Tim had an A grade 1st 1/2 of the year and a B - C grade 2nd 1/2. I, personally, don't think he deserves to be a top 10 player for the year, but I feel he is likely to get into the Top 10 of the Brownlow due to all the expected 2 and 3 votes he will get in the 1st 1/2 of the year.
