Are you offering to create the comp in 2016 Scarlett? Probably a good idea to do this sooner than later.

Let me know & just post the code for everyone to join.

I'm happy to help out in 2016 , weekly wraps, assist setting scoring etc.

20 th March works for me for draft night.

Auto select draft order, 60 seconds between picks. And reverse snake order on selections.

My suggestion For scoring is:

* Kicks, Handballs, Tackles & Marks all = 3

* Hit Outs = 2

* Points Scored = 4

* Scoring Accuracy = 2

* Free Differential = 1

Total of 21........

Thoughts Lads?

im happy with that but i've always hated scoring accuracy and putting it to 2 points i think might be a bit heavy on the scoring.

I'd be interested in putting it to 1 and also adding another category. I'll make the league now and then we can discuss it before the draft.

Good stuff Scarlett.

Both Contested possesions & Clearances sound like interesting additions. Puts a new spin on the ball magnet type player. I'd be up for adding both @ 1 point value.

Maybe then pump up Hit Outs to 3 to keep the odd number. That would really bring the elite hit out ruckman back into play?

as i suggested earlier i really like the spoils, gives the backmen something more rather then just going outside running defenders. i wont add anything until we get a general consensus from everyone involved. i sent a message out to everyone involved with an invite (I think, if you didnt get one just send me a message and i'll send it).

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?

I'm in.

Thanks Scarlett.

I also hate scoring accuracy.

I mean if your team kicks 20 goals 21 to 10 goals 1, to lose that point seems silly to me.

Lads with all the dislike of the "scoring accuracy" surfacing how about we park that entire category in 2016.

That way we can add , Spoils & clearances or contested possesions!! This will give a total fresh feel to the Comp this season?

I like spoils, I like the idea of making the game as even as possible as often it is heavily midfield based. 

Adding contested and clearances will further increase this, that's said il go with the majority!

I strongly believe we should leave the scoring as Matt has proposed...to many variables as is...with possibly only 14 teams, this will be enough change.

however, what are we doing re keepers....having two from last year as we agreed last year?

this is the issue we need to sort out....not the scoring...that's been solved by our Manager..

Some good suggestions here folks.

Re scoring, I don't like accuracy either, and it would be good to have hit outs worth more than last year. Other than that I am not really fussed, although would prefer games to be decided on the main stats.

Happy to drop to 14 teams, certainly better than 16.

OK..... Currently only 9 teams listed in comp.  It's hard to identify who is who from your list. There is 10 teams listed, I think Mad MELBOURNE might be the missing team? Lads if possible can you change your team names to match your Demonland Name until we have a full comp, 14 Teams.

looks like there is no other returning teams from 2015.

So we now need to recruit 4 fresh teams. Scarlett does the above sound about right before we open this comp up?

sorry i've been living away with work, so far 9 teams. good idea with the names, until we have a full team. I'm about to upgrade the comp so we can have all the extra options, also has an option for extra managers, I'd be interested in giving someone else access while I'm doing living away work, will be away for another 2 weeks.

Gary I added you as a league manager just to help out in case someone tries to join while I'm away during the week. if anyone wants to join from last year, just send them the link that you all received to join.

Hey Matt

No problem, I will keep an eye on things. I like your suggested categories. I have  listed my thoughts on category value.

    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 t

    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

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
