Demonbracket Classic 2015

Welcome to the 2015 Demonbracket Classic, your off-season distraction from fawning over draft previews and pretending to be interested in other things. As usual the main event with the 2016 list will be played in February, but for the second year in a row we keep you warmed up with an alternative fiesta of democracy.

Last season we looked at the greatest players of the modern era. This time we look further adrift to the 65 senior players who have appeared in the fewest

Some were unlucky, some shouldn't have been there in the first place, one turned out to be a hardened criminal but they've all played at least one AFL game which is more than you can say for me. They were the adequate, the forgettable, the occasionally regrettable, caretaker players of the MFC.



Now we need to find out which of these often lost players that the people prefer best.

Tournament rules
  • Vote on whatever criteria you see fit. If there's ever been a time that career success need not be a key factor in your decision this has to be it
  • Voting is to be exclusively conducted via TypeForm
  • TypeForm is mostly anonymous but don't be a nonce and vote 5000 times in what is otherwise a novelty competition
  • In the event of a draw both players will advance, except for the final where there will be a replay 
  • A short summary of the individual careers will be provided on the voting page, but for more in-depth research the links below point to their Demonwiki page
  • The decision of the committee (e.g. me) is final
  • May the most fondly remembered man win
