Here's what I'd do - 18 club anointed legends whose sole job it is to watch every game of their club live and give Brownlow votes. No one with a media role (so for NMFC it wouldn't be Carey of Kingy) or any official tie to their club other than being historically significant. Someone whose credibility in the game is beyond reproach - ie. it would be an honour to be nominated as your club's Brownlow rep. The votes are given 3-2-1 but both nominees votes are counted (ie. In Round 23 v Adelaide, Schimma would give votes and Andrew McLeod gives his - possible to gain 6 votes a game).

On the night, the votes for each game just get shown - not announced vote-by-vote by Gil. The current system is too slow. Here's the votes from the game - add them up, have a live 'leader board' on the side of the screen. Coming into the last round, yeah, build tension by ordering the games and slowing it down when you get to the contenders.

The 'fairest' element only exists in that players who are suspended lose the games they miss and can't get votes from the game they were suspended in.
