Why can't we use myself?

Devi said: (Nov 26, 2011)  
How can we use "me" and "myself"?

If one is the part of matter he has to take ones consideration first. So "between me and my brother" is correct.

Myself is used only with reflexive or emphatic pronouns. Here the word 'myself' is acting like an object. So me is the correct answer.

Sravani said: (Jul 11, 2015)  
We should not use me and my brother, because always that person who is talking should come at last so, using my brother and me is appropriate.

Grammarian said: (Sep 5, 2015)  
According to correct grammar, it is 'that the dispute on this issue is between my brother and I'. Don't judge me.

It should be- that the dispute on this issue is between me and my brother. In negative sense first person comes first in a sentence.
