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! :)

At least he has a great name ..I will try to look after him.

 please note, these late changes are quite unsatisfactory, Some of us, or at least me, had organised our team around the draft picks organised before John joined us.This workload is very annoying and note I have had pick 7 every year but one, where I had 10.,this is not on, and next year, if we have not got it together earlier, I am out...I feel like pulling the plug now.

That would be annoying for you for sure, but in the end, having a league that works is better than not having something at all. 

The picks in the draft, I believe, are entirely random. Before John joined I had around about Pick 5, now it's 10. That's life I guess. 

I agree though that we need to get things sorted earlier if possible, although that's easier said than done. 

Bottom line is we have a league, and I'm happy to contribute a season preview, weekly reviews etc to get a good atmosphere going!

I'm hearing you JCB and agree the lead up has been a bit messy. However I will take the reigns going forward & keep everything organised in 2018 & beyond.

and by the way it doesn't matter what pick you have or how much pre work you put in as your team is always terrible ?

For the record when I last won the flag in 2016 My first pick was 14. It really makes no difference, as it's all about developing your team and trading.

Good luck everyone in draft tomorrow night ?

@poita - the draft tonight is set as a slow draft, not a live, 60 second draft, so I'm throwing out a late hail mary in the hope you log on here before 8pm tonight and you can change it. Cheers.

Hmm not looking good. If omr doesnt get control before 8 should we quickly start a new league and all join? Or get in contact with mods to allow us to redraft during the week even if some might miss or find it hard?

Not sure. If all 12 teams are present it will still work but I assume Poita has a team? So if he doesn't show the draft won't work. I open to a new league if all else fails.

New League is a great idea if needed.

Poita has pick 2 so this draft will not get off the ground.

Matt - Did you want create it & we can have it on standby for 8.30pm

Risky but might work if we all show.

If you create it now then I'll be happy to quickly sign up and get it going.  Can we contact everyone else?

If Poita doesn't sign up then I'll let my mate John know that we won't need him after all so we have even numbers.

Unfortunately you can only make the draft for the next day. Has poita been active on demonland recently?

I don't think you understand jayceebee. The league is set for a slow online draft with 24 hours per pick. Poita who isn't here has pick 2. That's where tonight's draft will end. It's a farce.

He logged on and posted in a thread on Friday, and by that point we had tagged him in numerous posts asking him to either hand over admin duties or at least fixing the draft date.  He ignored them all.  Hopefully we can change to tomorrow night.

Not only that but I don't even think the Galah's, who have first pick, have shown up either!  

I don't mind if we lose a few players in the next 24 hours as I feel as though those who do will be all over this year and make for a great league.

Couldn't agree more, OMR!  Short term pain for long term gain!

Just now, scarlett said:

Thanks again for doing this, Matt.

How do we contact all involved?  We should probably aim for 10 players if possible.
