Okay, I've created the league. Link is below.

http://ultimate-footy.theage.com.au/382266/invitation

First priority is for past players. I would prefer to cap at 12 players, but I think we had 14 last year. If we get to 14 I would prefer to reduce the squad size. If somebody can notify the regulars, that would be great.

I will need some guidance in setting up the scoring. The available categories are: scoreboard impact, goal kicking accuracy, kicks, handballs, marks, hit outs, tackles and free kick differential (I am ignoring free kicks for and against). We can then give each category a weighting.

My personal draft preference is to draft during business hours, but I know that doesn't suit most people. I propose Sunday 19 March at 8pm for the draft.

Thanks, Peter.

Great Work Pete

I have joined.. I have just returned from OS this week, once I hit the weekend I will put together my thoughts on the scoring categories for 2017.... I think we had it pretty spot on in 2016 but will revisit & throw it open for discussion.

OMR 👍

i will be away from early may with no return date in sight, december looking most likely. With this being the case, I think it would lead to me being consistently uncompetitive at some stage throughout the competition and therefore i will opt out for this year I think. It has been fun and il look to put my hand up next year if a spot pops up because its been a blast.

Still needing any teams in the league?

I wasn't sure if me being on the list meant in the league or the list of backup options.  I didn't want to join and pinch a spot from a regular of I wasn't meant to.

I think at this point, if people want to join in, just do so. The season starts in just over two weeks, so we are getting short on time. The regulars have had time to join up if they are interested.

OK just checked, we have 9 Teams sitting in the comp currently.

I can't see Scarlett or Melissa? 

Robbo 24 is Snomed definitely joining? With these 3 we would have 12 & a full comp.

Demon King V 2 are you in? If so under what team name?

Once we have the numbers we can get on with finalising the scoring catergories then onto Draft night on Sunday 19th March......

FYI re scoring, was happy with last years, but also happy for it to change.

I was happy with scoring set up last year too👍

From memory the set up was

*Scoreboard Impact = 5

* Kicks, Handballs = 4

* Marks, Hit outs, Tackles = 3

* Spoils = 2

* Free Kick Difference = 1

Totalling 25

Open for discussion lads, however we need to agree quickly on scoring so we can all draft to best advantage in these catergories 👍👍👍👍

I liked last years scoring too. Seemed even and defenders were worth as much as midfielders with the spoils catergory. I changed my name back to Scarlett to make it easier.

I see we have 12 teams locked in. Is that everybody we were expecting to sign up? I would prefer not to increase the league size, but will do so if some regulars have missed out.

Spoils doesn't seem to be an available category unless you pay to upgrade. Not sure if they have changed this from last year, or if someone paid to upgrade.

Hey Pete

Yeah I think we are good with the 12

MM is out & Robbo 24 returns👍 The only team we haven't heard from is Turducken Slammers from 2016. He was a great comp member, he used to write great weekly summaries, however haven't seen him around for ages... Spoils was a good category, how much is the upgrade? Looking forward to next Sunday nights draft.. Any questions from any of the newbies about scoring or draft night? 😎
