Friends, it's time for the only democratic institution you can still have faith in. Where we ask you to make an arbitrary decision on a matchup between two or more Melbourne players, and eventually uncover a people's champion. The draw will go live on Friday night, in advance of forum exclusive early voting beginning Sunday night. Thanks to Demonland for again hosting one of the voting booths for the tournament.

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. 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 welcome to vote as long as you follow all other rules 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 Voting will be conducted in an open format via Twitter, BigFooty, Demonland and Facebook. If you're intensely private, hate social media, or just want to join the list of email voters email demonblogger AT gmail.com.
