Each round simply pick one team that you think is a certainty to win. If your chosen team wins, you remain in the competition and get to pick another team in the next round. If your pick loses or draws and any other competitor picks a winner you are eliminated.

You win the competition when your pick is the only winning selection made for that round.

All game results in a given round, not just the game you select, affect the competition outcome for you in that round. So your selection has to be made before the first game of the round.

To preserve mathematical fairness no late tips will be accepted after the round has started and you are eliminated if your pick is not made on time. (The only exception to this rule is that you may defer tipping if you are ineligible to make a selection in the first game(s) of that round.)

If no selected pick wins, all competitors who made a pick progress to the next round.

To discourage systematic picking, you cannot pick the same team in any three consecutive rounds. So for example if you pick Richmond to win in round 1, you cannot pick Richmond in rounds 2 or 3.

Also, you cannot pick against the same team in any three consecutive rounds. So if you pick Richmond to beat Carlton in round 1 you cannot pick the team that plays Carlton in rounds 2 or 3.

In the event that the remaining competitors all pick the same team in two successive rounds, the competition will be completed and all remaining competitors declared joint winners.

Great comp, looks so much easier than it is. Looking at Round 1 it doesn't look easy at all.

Thanks

Awesome Yinnar. Glad to see it back. It's a pretty evenly matched round 1. I'll go Richmond. Hopefully not the kiss of death

Round 1 can throw up a fair few surprises, but after last year's debacle in Round 1 I'm going for: Geelong.

Not sure I want either team to win this one to be honest.
