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.

I have contacted JCB- He is in- offered to pay. Please advise new ID or how he gains entry to the Ultimate site-does he use his old ID & Password.

Your assistance will be greatly appreciated by him..

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.

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.

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s
