Twelve months after he was supposed to win the Brownlow Medal, Collingwood midfielder Dane Swan finally has.
The 27-year-old took out the AFL's most prestigious individual award with 34 votes - a record under the current 3-2-1 voting system.
He beat St Kilda's Nick Dal Santo, who polled 28.
Western Bulldogs captain Matthew Boyd and Collingwood's Scott Pendlebury finished equal third on 24.
Swan, beaten as unbackable favourite in 2010, went two places better than his third place finish last year to secure his first Brownlow.
Swan won an enthralling medal count, in which Hawthorn's Sam Mitchell had looked on track to end up polling the most votes despite being ineligible.
Mitchell was rubbed out after pleading guilty to head-high contact on Geelong's Steve Johnson in round five and receiving a reprimand from the match review panel.
While he wasn't suspended, players found guilty of an offence carrying more than 100 demerit points are ineligible to win the Brownlow.
Mitchell polled 30 votes - the most ever by an ineligible player.
Swan was presented with the Brownlow - Collingwood's first since Nathan Buckley was part of a three-way tie in 2003 - at an awards ceremony attended by more than 1,500 at Melbourne's Crown Entertainment Centre.
Swan's 34 votes broke the previous mark of 32 under the current 3-2-1 system voted for collectively by umpires from each match.
The joint winners in 1940, Collingwood's Des Fothergill and South Melbourne's Herbie Matthews, polled 32 votes each, as did St Kilda's Robert Harvey in 1998.

Former Adelaide Crows coach Neil Craig has chosen to work at the Melbourne Foootball Club instead of others, including Carlton and Brisbane.
He has been appointed Melbourne's director of sports performance, a role which should see him act as a mentor to first-time coach Mark Neeld, who was appointed two weeks ago.
Craig, who was Adelaide’s fitness coach during their premiership years of 1997 and 1998, was head coach from 2004 until his resignation in July.
The 55-year-old’s experience in sports science and coaching have led to several clubs showing interest in his services for next season, including Carlton, Brisbane and Richmond.
Craig was quoted on the Melbourne website as saying he was convinced by discussions with Melbourne officials that their club was "serious about becoming a high performance football club".
"I love the history of the Melbourne Football Club. When I walk through the MCG and look at the honor boards I see that the Melbourne Football Club started this game, wrote the rules and have produced some all time great coaches."
"In Mark Neeld I see a coach that has a clear vision and I wanted to be part of this coaching group that will work really hard to give the members and supporters what they have been craving for."
Prior to becoming head coach, Craig worked as an assistant coach and as a fitness adviser with Adelaide, overseeing back-to-back premierships in 1997 and 1998. He also advised the Australian cycling team at the Sydney Olympics. Craig played 319 games in the SANFL and is a member of the South Australian Hall of Fame.
Melbourne describes Craig's position as providing "leadership, strategic direction and management support across all aspects of the Football Department’s performance structure including Senior Coach Mark Neeld, Elite Performance Manager David Misson and General Manager, Player Development & Strategy Todd Viney".

GEELONG - 2011 AFL PREMIERS

GEELONG 4.3 8.6 13.7 18.11 (119)
COLLINGWOOD 4.2 9.3 12.6 12.9 (81)
Goals: Geelong: S Johnson 4 J Bartel 3 T Hawkins 3 T Varcoe 3 J Selwood 2 C Ling M Duncan M Stokes. Collingwood: A Krakouer 3 T Cloke 3 S Sidebottom 2 B Johnson L Ball L Brown S Wellingham.
Best: Geelong: J Bartel J Selwood C Ling T Lonergan J Corey S Johnson T Hawkins B Ottens A Mackie. Collingwood: S Pendlebury D Thomas C Tarrant B Johnson H Shaw L Ball S Sidebottom.
Injuries: Geelong: H Taylor (head knock), J Ponsiadly (dislocated shoulder). Collingwood: nil.
Reports: nil.
Umpires: Chris Donlon, Shaun Ryan, Brett Rosebury.
Official Crowd: 99,537 at MCG.

Geelong has become of the greatest teams of the modern era by winning the 2011 AFL Grand Final.
The Cats lost key forward James Podsiadly to injury half-way through the second term whilst facing an 16-point deficit, but managed to battle their way to a tense 18.11 (119) to 12.9 (81) victory on the back of tremendous performances by young gun Tom Hawkins and Norm Smith medallist Jimmy Bartel.
The triumph hands Geelong its ninth VFL/AFL premiership just a season after being discounted as a real force in the AFL after being unceremoniously dumped by the Pies in the 2010 preliminary final and the departures of superstar midfielder Gary Ablett and mentor Mark Thompson.
But under new coach Chris Scott, a talented list laden with now three-time premiership stars (a first for any Geelong player) regrouped with a much-needed injection of youth to lose just three games in 2011.
Scott becomes the first coach to win a flag in his debut season since Alan Joyce achieved the feat with Hawthorn in 1988. Scott also becomes the 13th coach in VFL/AFL history to win a flag in his first season.
In contrast, AFL icon Mick Malthouse was denied the fairytale chance to hoist a fifth premiership trophy in his final game as a coach and will now step aside for assistant Nathan Buckley to take the reins at Collingwood.
Hawkins took the game by the scruff of the neck after the Cats trailed by three points at half-time, booting three goals in the third quarter and consistently outmarking All Australian opponent Ben Reid to give Geelong a vital target on half forward.
Steve Johnson overcame a long week of speculation over his knee injury to kick four goals while Joel Selwood and Bartel played crucial parts in overcoming the dogged Pies.
Bartel in particular filled the gaping hole left by Podsiadly in the Geelong forward line, his superior overhead marking ability helping him to three goals, six marks and 26 disposals.

Essendon fined players Heath Hocking and Josh Jenkins today for breaching code-of-conduct regulations regarding the on-selling of AFL grand final tickets.
Essendon rookie Jenkins offered to on-sell tickets allocated by the AFL to Heath Hocking via Twitter last week, the Bombers said.
The tickets were not sold.
The AFL carried out an investigation in which both players were co-operative, the Bombers said in a statement.
The investigation found Jenkins quickly realised what he was doing was wrong and did not take any serious steps towards selling the tickets - which were not in fact his to sell, the club added.
Jenkins was fined $1750 while Hocking was fined $3000.

Brendan Fevola has registered with NTFL club Waratahs and will play his first game against Wanderers next week.
The NT News revealed in July that Fevola was Top End bound to join good mates Lincoln Withers and Heath Culpitt at Gardens Oval.
Fevola officially became a Warrior this week, meaning he will serve his one-match suspension from the VFL in Sunday's game against the Tiwi Bombers.
Next week's clash with traditional rivals Wanderers on October 23 is Tahs' first home game of the season, making it the ideal time to introduce the former AFL Blue and Lion to the NTFL.
Fevola is desperate to play in the AFL again and a month of football in the Top End before the November 24 national draft would seem the ideal preparation.
The AFL flavour will continue at Palmerston and the Tiwi Bombers, with dual Geelong premiership player Cameron Mooney and former Bomber and Saint Andrew Lovett set to join their playing ranks.
Mooney's link with the NTFL Magpies comes from his friendship with Geelong teammate and former Palmerston player Mathew Stokes.

Former Sydney Swans player Daryn Cresswell says a gambling problem led him to lose close to $1 million and reckons he knows of players who bet on matches they played in.
Cresswell, who has recently been released from jail after defrauding a bank to fuel his gambling problem, has also admitted to betting on a game he was playing in.
He told the Seven Network's Sunday Night program he had millions of dollars worth of property, a wife and three children and a promising career until he became addicted to gambling and lost it all.
"A typical day would be, buy the paper, straight to the form guide, make a few phone calls to see if there's any tips running around ... and start betting pretty much all day," he said.
He said on a typical day he would bet between $1000 and $20,000 on horses.
"I was completely out of control," Cresswell said.
"My thought process was just clouded by winning and betting - nothing else came into the equation.
"When you're in jail for 10 months you think about a lot of things and I would have lost $1 million, no question.
"Gambling is a huge problem. I just don't think it should be allowed."

It was Samsung who told Essendon that the partnership was over. I guess it's for monetary reasons?
