  1. Firstly thanks to @Demonland for accepting our invitation to be a co-presenting partner of the eighth edition of Demonbracket. Those of you who have played before won't need any further instructions, but for everyone else the Bracket can be summed up as your opportunity to make an arbitrary choice about which Melbourne player you prefer based on whatever criteria you like. It's a knockout tournament with some byes due to seeding and seniority (more intricate preview post here), where we work down to the one most preferred player on the list. Previous finals: 2012 - James Frawley d. Nathan Jones 2013 - Tom McDonald d. Mitch Clark 2014 - Nathan Jones d. Jack Watts 2015 - Nathan Jones d. Dom Tyson 2016 - Jack Viney d. Nathan Jones 2017 - Max Gawn d. Jack Viney 2018 - Neville Jetta d. Clayton Oliver 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. You can either cast your vote in this thread, via Twitter, Facebook, email (demonblogger@gmail.com) or in the interests of bringing all the people together the BigFooty Demonbracket thread. Only one vote per person per matchup please. Other important rules for first time players: 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. 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 This thread will be updated with the list of preliminary and first Round matches on Friday night, and the first match-ups to vote on will be posted Sunday night. Until then, have at your speculation about potential winners. With five former champions on the list and at least five other realistic championship contenders this promises to be the biggest Bracket yet, and we're thrilled to have the Demonland community join in.

    AFLX Revamped

    More than one mention in this thread about how this could lead to big things internationally. What is the actual strategy for this to happen, is it going to be broadcast anywhere where any decent sized international audience will see it? When Port play in China we hear about how the game is being shown locally but are the same people going to broadcast this, or is the idea to create a razzle dazzle highlights package that internationals will accidentally stumble on via social media and YouTube and decide they want to play the game? International expansion is a noble goal, but let's be honest people have been dreaming about the rest of the world taking up the game for decades and because the rest of the world is perfectly happy with the sports they already have the best we get out of it is a handful of interested people and as near to irrelevant international participation figures. If it hits big and suddenly money starts flowing into the game from everywhere you can slap my [censored] and call me Charlie, but given that we can barely get parts of Australia to get interested in Australian Rules Football you're kidding yourself if you think China, India etc.. are going to fall for it just because it's played on a rectangular ground.

    Correct. No other changes announced so far. Which is unusual. Hoping one day somebody gets a silly number and sticks with it Shaun Rehn style.

    Good thing I saw this coming in advance and rebranded the site in mid-2018. No good for my actual life, 1.10 games are my favourite.
