Guys I'm out. I'm in another comp with mates which is already consuming far to much of my time!

Except for the bitching and moaning by some, I've had a great time playing this and enjoyed running it last year.

:roos:

Scarlett, Good Vibes, Poita & Robbo 24 Lads good to here from you all and HNY 2016.

Firstly Robbo 24, sorry to see you go champ, you have been a star for the entire 5 year journey of the Norm Smith ComP. If you change your Mind you are always welcome back.

Scarlett - as much as I like the keepers concept I think it is impossible with the High team churn rate of this Comp in the last few years.

Poita - I think your call for 12 teams is a fair one and will allow for greater depth in the player pool and make draft night that much more critical and strategic.

Is anyone putting there hand up to run the Comp in 2016? Due to work commitments there is no way I could do the job justice.

Anyway it's still only Jan. let's check back on numbers mid Feb, last years teams get first preference to return. If we haven't got the numbers by mid Feb we open up to new teams. Happy to cap the team numbers at whatever number of teams we all agree is a fair amount.

JCB are you out there?

Lets hold fire with filling the comp for 2 weeks.

Wiseblood is first in line to claim a vacant spot. With 3 confirmed not returning he is on top of the list to claim the first vacant spot in the comp.  We just need to work out how many teams we are capping the comp @ in 2016.

thanks for putting your hand up Wisey you are 99.9% over the line. Welcome aboard!!!!!!!

i think if we drop to 12 teams there will still be quite a bit of talent not signed, where as if we go 14, 2 less then last year i think it will be a bit more difficult but the better coaches will show with there picks and signings. Once we get a few more numbers up over the next two weeks, I think we should discuss it more seriously then.

My thoughts are 14 teams would be ideal. It's two less than last year & will throw 40 more players into the player pool.

With "The Galah's & Wiseman we are currently @ 11 teams.

3 more & we have a full house. 

Feb 16 is the cut off for last years teams to appear. Then we finalise teams number,  & recruit new players if needed.

All that's left is to create league, set draft night & random select draft order.

We can then have a group discussion & work out scoring categories & category value's for 2016.

I don't think we had the scoring right last year. Not enough reward for handbills & hit outs.

Just my thoughts gents? Fire away what do you all think ?

yep hit outs should never have been put down to one, it worked out better to play a second ruck who might snag a goal or get a few more kicks than to win the hitouts. made drafting goldie and that early a bad choice. i think there are other scoring categories that you can put in as well like spoils and that.

What are you talking about JCB?

Fixing up a flawed scoring system in 2015 will make 2016 a better and more even contest for everyone. We are suggesting nothing more than Hit Outs are worth more than 1 point to bring elite ruckman back into play & handballs are worth the same as kicks.

Thats pretty much it?

Wheres the difficult bit?

You can do this Ol Fella?

Stay tuned we are going to have a ripping 2016 season?

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    CHANGES 2021 by The Oracle

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend). But we’ve also come into October which in football terms means that for one segment of the Melbourne Football Club — the recru

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition th

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s
