Ultimate Footy - Norm Smith League

Recommended Posts

Only 4 spots left for Demonland 2 (Or the Demonland - Robbie Flower league as i like to think of it). Get in quick if you want to play.

League ID: 175561

Password: demons

Draft time is set to Sunday February 26 at 8pm. Enough time to see each team play once (well twice) in the NAB cup

Sounds good IWAP. What time limit do you have on picks? As Jackattack says it's best to keep it short.

It is also 1 minute per pick. Similar to Jackattack, the league i was in last year had 5 minutes per pick in a non-live draft - and it took 8pm to midnight for two consecutive days, plus several picks during the day. One of our entrants insisted on taking about 4 minutes 58 for each of his picks!

KEEPER LEAUGE

I had thought originally to keep players from last year for this year but ultimately I feel that disadvantages some teams who might have weaker teams so it is best to start from a clean slate.

I still think we should still explore the option of keeping one player each from 2011

Surely this wont disadvantage any teams!

The two new teams simply get a priority pick before the 1st round

If we are going down this track anyway in 2013 then this One Player ONLY MVP 2011 selection will add an interesting twist to this season.

Yes / No / Maybe - Thoughts?

I agree with the idea but the great thing about UF is the connection you have with the other competitors. With trades and everything happening during the year you begin to make somewhat of an alliance with some whilst refusing to trade with others knowing how they operate. It is this that seperates just names on a page like SC and DT and the reason why changing it each and every year may not be a good idea. I always play closer attention to the posters who I played UF with simply because I see them as good blokes.

For this reason also it's why I'd set up two threads one for League JA and one for League IWAP. Theres no one and two but its simply easier to connect with your league than going through all the post because last year League 2 got lost because League 1 were all so active in the thread.

This is a good suggestion imo, what do others think? Would 2 UF threads on the board for most of the season be too much.

Last year league 2 was almost like supercoach with unlimited trades of fringe players, we definately need to get a conversation going this year

I'm in favour of two threads as long as it won't annoy non UF posters too much. Hopefully it will encourage everyone to be more active. I like UF banter, which was done well in JA's league last year, and it would be great if something similar could happen with our league. It would be my strong preference, however, not to call it under my username - but rather Ultimate Footy Demonland 2 - OR Ultimate Footy - Robbie Flower league.

2 spots left

I support splitting the threads.

'Ultimate Footy - Demonland' would be my preference for a name. I think to have the league named after me would be too much.

Here are my thoughts on having the keeper league from last year.

Would have to be two at a minimum because of the draft system, otherwise it wouldn't be fair. The coach who had pick 1 has too much of an advantage over the coach with pick 16, I can't remember who was picked last year so I can't give specific examples.

If we did bring it in this year instead of next it will disadvantage those who didn't select players with the keeper league in mind. And might disadvantage those who traded late in the season.

There is also the problem of not knowing who had which players. Although there might be a way around that if I delete our current league completely and we start again.

SnomeD now in.

Only eth38 is missing, anyone know him? Last seen on demonland in December.

OK NO Keeper Leauge in any way shape or form from 2011 - I'm moving on & looking forward to 2013 on that score.

Know JA please explain how your Lottery idea for draft order selection will unfold?

You won't be disappointed OMR; it is a draft lottery system where you place bids on the pick you want and I draw those bids from a hat to determine the order of the draft.

More details tomorrow.

Hey BIG JIM, Check out the Ultimate Footy - Robbie Flower League thread. You're in there. IWAP has designed different aspects rules for your comp to this one so it would be worthwhile checking with him. Good luck.

Welcome to our 2 new coaches for 2012, and a bit of an introduction for the class of 2011:

Dream team: Obsesive compulsive disorder when it comes to Melbourne players taken early in their draft year. Wears number 4 on his jumper, has a picture of Colin Sylvia's arms in his wallet, and may still hold out hope that Trav Johnston will resurrect his career at the dees.

Jackliveshere: Accepts the blame for last year's debacle after choosing number 31 for his jumper. Is considering number 10 for next year. Genuinely believes, and has so for many years, that Mitch Clark is the greatest player in the game.

DRAFT LOTTERY

We’re changing the way we pick the draft order this year. For reasons too many to mention here we are holding a draft lottery system to decide the order in which the first round of the draft will be selected. Like last year the order of the second round will be the reverse of the first, the third reversed again and so on.

· You may place a bid on any of the 18 first round picks you would like to have in the draft.

· The number of bids you have is based on where you finished last year (see table)

· If you have multiple bids you can place them on a single pick, or spread them across several picks.

Once everyone has submitted their bids I will compile them into their 18 buckets (18 picks), each bucket will have multiple bids in it. And so we will begin the lottery.

· Starting at bucket 1 (pick 1) I will draw 1 bid out. The name I draw out will get pick 1 in the draft.

· I repeat the process for pick 2, 3 and so on until everyone has been assigned a pick.

A few technical issues you don’t need to know but might like to know.

· You may only be assigned one pick in the first round, meaning if I pick your name out a second time it will be ignored. (you can’t have multiple picks in the first round)

· If I come across a bucket without a bid, that pick will be assigned to the lowest available player on table below (ie. worst performing team from last year)

· If you do not submit your bids to me on time all your bids will be placed into one pick associated with the reverse finishing order from last year.

Had to guess a bit with the finishing position from last year but here is my table listing the number of bids each coach has:

DL 7: 1 bid

Dappa: 1 bid

JCB: 1 bid

Jackattack: 1 bid

Range rover: 2 bids

Robbo: 2 bids

Jako: 2 bids

HT: 2 bids

45HG: 3 bids

OMR: 3 bids

Rpfc: 3 bids

SnomeD: 3 bids

Dream team: 3 bids

Jack liveshere: 3 bids

Mad Melbourne: 3 bids

Eth: 3 bids

Scarlett: 3 bids

Devoted: 3 bids

PM the bids you would like to place.

    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.

    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,
