Sorry all, I've been so busy with work and building a new house that Demonland has been a rare occurrence lately.... I'm keen to be involved (for the whole season this time) and also my little Demon is also keen to jump on board...

So there's TWO more for the league - We have signed up!

The draft night is not Wednesday is it?

I'm in Sydney on a work junket until Thursday so won't be in a position to be completing a draft... Next Sunday is a better option yeah?

Hey Krazy

Welcome back champ & welcome to your young bloke also.

Draft night is not Wednesday, hoping Poita updates details soon to Sunday 18th March......

I've joined - sorry it took me a little bit of time to get around to it!

@poita - thanks for setting this all up!  The draft night is set for this Wednesday but needs to be changed to the 18th of March if you see this before then!

If I get the time I'm also happy to do a write up of how each match up fared over the weekend.  I did this a few years back the last time I played and people seemed to enjoy it, so I'm happy to have another crack if I get the time once the season is underway!

Paging @poita - sorry to be a pest mate, but the draft is still set for tomorrow night and not this coming Sunday night.  Hopefully you'll see this and can get it changed!  Cheers in advance.

@poita Hey Mate......

We need to change the Draft Date ASAP.

Hopefully the uneven number of teams don't let it proceed tonight otherwise this might get messy.

@Wiseblood Hey Wisey

Awesome offer for weekly wrap ups mate, Krazy was doing some good stuff early last season also..

Its going to be a big season, let's hope we get the Draft date sorted ASAP

Do we have a 12th team on the horizon?

I might be able to get a mate to join but I'll have to double check.

Hopefully @poita pops by soon to confirm the date of the draft!

If @Krazy Jaeger O'Smeara was doing them last season and wants to continue then I'm fine with that, I don't want to step on any toes.  If he's happy to pass on the baton then I'll be happy to do them.  Might even try and fit in a season preview as well. :)

Krazy has gone ...so wise blood continue....We need OMR to take over management if Poita cannot do it....this is becoming ridiculous.

if indeed, just a blooper....no issue...but we need to get act together.

I'd put my hand up to do more but I actually run a separate Ulitimate Footy League with 14 people from my work. I manually enter the draft picks after a 4 1/2 hour [censored] up draft at the pub and then prepare a season preview that of course predicts me to finish first and sledges the chances of all of my opposition. It's good fun and it would be great if we could replicate that vibe here. The weekly wrap ups were awesome last year.

I totally agree re: the vibe of it.  I think some previews, weekly wrap ups and a bit of banter makes things much more fun.  Not to mention everyone logging in regularly to check if their are trade offers on the table.  When I played a few years back I would offer a trade or two and find it sitting there three weeks later which was frustrating.

I've got my Sunday night free so hopefully we can organise the draft for then and get things underway!

All - I have contacted Ultimate Footy for assistance. Stay tuned I will update once they have responded ?

Good move, OMR.  As you say, we need to get things off the ground and make sure everyone is aware of the draft date etc so the season gets underway without too many problems.

Hi All

OK - Success the Draft is now officially Sunday 18th March 2018 @ 8.00pm.

We still need one more team to proceed & Im still working on getting Admin rights transferred to myself pending Poita's reappearance. 

Scoring is the same as last year, I'll put it out there once I get some visability.

Hey JCB

Adam is working on another team tonight.

If that doesn't come off I have another plan... Relax now mate I've got this.  We are going to have a huge interactive season.  And I'm going to kick your ass all the way ?

Hey all,

My mate John has just signed up to the league, so now we have 12 players!  He's never played before but he loves a bit of fantasy footy and is keen to have a crack.

So everything seems to be clicking into place nicely!  Bring on the draft! :)
