NAT Fyfe has erased some of the disappointment of Fremantle's exit from the AFL finals by winning the 2015 Brownlow Medal.

Fyfe claimed the AFL's fairest and best award after a dominant season for the Dockers, illustrated by the fact he polled 26 of a possible 30 votes between rounds four and 14.

He eventually collected 31 votes, with West Coast's 2014 Brownlow Medal winner Matt Priddis runner-up with 28.

The 24-year-old Fyfe is the first player to be judged best-afield by the umpires nine times during a season.

He roared to a tally of 29 votes from his first 13 matches, more votes than any other player received all night.
