Ultimate Footy - Norm Smith League

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.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September?

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell
