Ultimate Footy - Norm Smith League

Recommended Posts

Personally I think Sunday evening is the best. I don't finish work until 9pm every weekday and Saturday nights will rule out a few I think.

If I have to miss it such is life it needs to be a date which will suit the greatest majority but my personal preference would be a Sunday night.

I will be signing up shortly lads.

Forgot my password & just waiting for the reset to land in the e-mail

Thumbs up from me on the Sunday Draft suggestion.

I am still digesting JA's scoring system options, I think I am leaning towards the Scoring catergory deciding the tie with a Win not a loss.

Early days we can work through the best scoring dynamics over the next few weeks,

Pumped to be back!

Sunday evening works for me as well, now set for 7:30pm 4th march.

Fantastic!

Like the new setup JA, the 4-4 with Score % counting as only half a stat seems fair and reasonable too. I had Riewoldt last year so him and Trav Cloke you need not fear picking haha.

In regards to the opposite draft order to last year I don't think admin will have the ability to select picking order I think its all generated by computer but correct me if i'm wrong Jattack.

Happy to do it that way if it works though- be an honour taking pick 18 :)

I have the ability to adjust the draft order for the first round. But I am shying away from straight out reverse ladder.

The off season has given me time to dream up a kind of lottery/bidding system that I think has some merit. More on that later.

Keeper leagues are supported by ufooty (where you keep some or all of your players from the previous year) and I think the idea has merit but if we do implement it I think we should start from scratch this year with a view to keeping a set few players for next year.

My Password reset just isn't turning up in the inbox @ the minute.

If it hasn't arrived tommorow I will register again.

The Keeper concept is interesting.

I reckon it would be an interesting twist if we kept our MVP player from 2011 this year.

One player only, one position only - then lets run with the lottery selection process.

Just putting it out there!

Any interest in another league - ideally where people are commited to participating throughout the whole season? I'm happy to set it up unless anyone else wants to.

Yes, I'd definitely be in for this (assuming I can't get into the "A-League").

JCB is currently suspended JA. He's suspension I think finishes on the 25th of Feb. So it's most likely that I'd say....or his PM's are full and can't receive any PM's. If that's the case he'll need to empty his inbox.

savoydee - please pass on info for JCB's return. Thanks.

He can use same details for logging on as last year to the site, but tell him to use the details JA gave for league number and password posted earlier. Then he's in.

.....Or if he's forgotten last years login, re-register, then choose invited league, enter code and password JA provided.

Thanks IWAP. Have joined your league as Van Diemen.

I can't make Thursday March 8th for the draft, will be o/s from Feb 26th to Mar 11. I'll have my pre-draft rankings all setup and ready to go though.

Good work IWAP!

Happy to help if you have any questions in regards to set up.

I avoided captains for our league. Could add an interesting dynamic.

JCB says thanks, however, he has asked for league ID & PASSWORD as JA cannot contact him. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.I will ring him with these details after gaining it.

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears. But unli

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,
