Friends, Australia's best loved footy award returns from 07:00 AEDT next Monday. On the eighth occasion of running this tournament long time viewers don't need to be told what's going on, but for post-finals run carpetbaggers and opposition supporters, this is the competition where we let you make an arbitrary choice between two or more Melbourne players based on criteria of your choosing.

The draw will be conducted live on Twitter @demonblog from 19:00 on Friday 25 January, with matches commencing 07:00 Monday 28 January. After that the tournament tree will be updated in this post, and daily matches posted for your voting enjoyment.

Rules
  • The voting criteria for each match-up is your personal business. It need not have anything to do with football if you don't want it to, but if does then the best of British luck to you. We won't ask questions, and nor should anyone else. Vote shamers will be denounced.
  • Voting will be conducted between 0700 and 1900 AEDST unless otherwise noted
  • You must cast a valid vote for every match that day or none of your votes on that day's matches will count (I'll try and remind you where possible by there are no guarantees).
  • You must pick a winner in every match up. No half votes, no "I can't split them". Yes you can, and you must.
  • Non-MFC fans are more than welcome to vote as long as you follow all other rules
  • Players are more than welcome to use social media, real media or paid advertising to promote themselves. Outright bribery is not permitted.
  • Players may vote for themselves as long as they also vote in the other matchups of the day
  • In the event of a tie both players will advance to the next round, except in the case of the Grand Final where a replay will be held the following day.
  • If a match features three or more players and two or more tie for the most votes they will advance with all other players eliminated.
  • We reserve the right to refuse an excessive number of multiple votes from the same person using multiple accounts
  • You can also vote via Twitter, Facebook, email (demonblogger@gmail.com) and in the interests of bringing people together, the Demonland bracket thread.
  • The decision of the Demonbracket Organising Committee is final. Unless somebody takes us to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lucerne.

Full preview post here, and until the draw is conducted on Friday happy speculating about a 2019 winner.
I could wait for it to start and find out in time ... but I’d rather know right away.

Will 2018 Melbourne players who are no longer Melbourne players get a look in? Because I already want to vote for Dom Tyson’s hair

Viney/Jones?

What the hell mate.
That's the pitfalls of not qualifying as a seed.

Reminiscent of some other shock early matches over the years like Howe vs Moloney '12, Watts vs Davey '13 and Petracca vs Vince '17 but probably the hottest opening round game ever.
