So the above is the rookie draft pool of all leftovers and should be pretty much up to date following the AFL trade period. Players will be removed from the the above if they're delisted. If you notice any mistakes or player that shouldn't be there, just let me know. Also, all the 'top up players' have been returned to the rookie pool as was agreed upon at the start of the season.

The order is fully updated for trades. this draft is a while away as it is after all delistings, which takes place after the national draft.

Check out the discussion thread. At minimum it will be a week plus away. Trading important with loads of dpp movements
Title: Re: EXV: Rookie Draft 2016
Post by: Nige on December 07, 2016, 09:03:24 AM
I'll use my morning to update this thread since I haven't got much else to do.

Edit: The posts with available players should be up to date. Will have to update them again before the draft once Euros teams have delisted.
Title: Re: EXV: Rookie Draft 2016
Post by: Hellopplz on January 23, 2017, 11:42:20 PM
Since Holz is overseas, I'll be happy to take over this and try to keep it updated (once or twice a day when I get onto a computer). It is also might get the comp back up and going with the fantasy games opening up shortly!

I'll say we can officially start on the 27th of January, so gives everybody a few days to finalise their lists and spots, maybe trade for picks and whatnot. This will be the first draft where you can trade picks/players mid-draft I assume since we've never actually had a trade period besides for DPP changes, but we also can't leave this draft until too late.
Title: Re: EXV: Rookie Draft 2016
Post by: LaHug on January 25, 2017, 08:08:13 AM
HP, any chance we can make it the 28th instead? A lot of people might want to spend Australia Day Public Holiday not doing FanFooty stuff, and then Friday we can finalise lists for a weekend start? (Actually, people might be taking a long weekend and going away so I'm not even sure if this weekend is great...)
Title: Re: EXV: Rookie Draft 2016
Post by: Hellopplz on January 25, 2017, 08:39:25 AM
I'm cool with that. If people want to take picks earlier they are welcome to but I won't enforce a tight picking schedule/autopicks for a week or so as it is a short notice start, so will give people time to prep for sure.
Title: Re: EXV: Rookie Draft 2016
Post by: elephants on January 25, 2017, 01:22:28 PM
The 30th might be good (Monday of the following week).

Just relies on people taking their picks quickly and being active (which is a serious issue at time in this comp).
Title: Re: EXV: Rookie Draft 2016
Post by: Hellopplz on January 25, 2017, 11:49:05 PM
Think Holz wants to delay this to next week after delistings are finalised!

I'm happy to postpone, at least now we got the ball rolling again for the draft ;).

Post by: elephants on February 20, 2017, 12:55:19 PM
Just an update on this guys.

Plan is to start the rookie draft tomorrow at 9am, with the aim to finish it up in a week. Very possible if everyone commits to being active and taking their picks.

To speed up the process, it'd be fantastic if each coach could work out what picks they're planning to take, and which they're planning to pass in order to speed up the process.

Nige will be updating the position thread and your own records should make it pretty clear how many spots you have available on your list.

Once this is sorted, if you could let us know what you're taking/passing I'll be able to update the OP :)

Cheers guys!

Also, if people don't respond to this thread, just check Nige's Team List thread and work out which picks people are taking. E.g. If someone has 38 on their list, they're using their first two picks and passing the rest. If someone has 40 on their list, they're skipping all their picks. Etc.

Will do, but not until the thread is 100% updated. Still some minor errors on there throwing out the list numbers.

I think Holz and Nige have covered the leftover player pool (seems to be a lot of players there though but I suppose the more the merrier. Better to have double listings than miss out players completely!

Nice pick. I'm spewing this draft has started so late as we usually get it done before the pre-season games start. Probably would have been able to grab him with my 12, 13, 14 bundle otherwise :P

He was on our very short list along with Josh Smith, Rupert Wills, Archie Smith, Ed Langdon, and a couple of others that haven't been picked yet. I had a 12 person list all up before the JLT started and all 5 picks so far have been from it (4 of the 5 were in my top 5 too!). Makes me a bit worried about my other two picks... :-\

Just something before we get to that pick,according to the team lists thread Serbia has 40 players on their list and so I am guessing they won't be using pick 11 just thought I'd mention it because that just gives Scrads 4 picks together.

Nic Newman - taking a punt here that this guy gets some games and has the capacity to score well.

Tom Papley - injured early, but I think he has the potential to be a solid forward option for years to come.

Aaron Black - surely going to replace Kersten in a forward role for the Cats.

Rory Atkins - improved nicely in his 2nd year, could take another step this year. Welcome back to the Wolves after being a top-up for us last year.

At the risk of upsetting ele, we pick Reilly O'Brien. The moment Jacobs retires or, heaven forbid, gets injured, our ruck depth is amazing!

I'll message LF but she's at work so might not be able to pick. I'll ask her if I can pick for her as her next two picks are before mine so a 3 player depth chart won't stuff things up.

Fairly surprised this bloke lasted to us here! Coming off an ACL, about 12 months ago I would have had him top 3 in the rookie draft. I've cooled on him a lot lately although I would have rated him inside my top 10 (depending on needs).

I wrongly assumed that ele was going to take a ruck and would take O'Brien with his pick because he already had Jacobs. I thought I'd better take O'Brien with that pick and then DBJ if he slips through with ele and LF both needing rucks. Looks like I was wrong.

i was just about to say i absolutely love having the draft close to the season and was thinking we go even later next year. People are getting some serious value now rather then just taking stabs in the dark. If we drafted 2 weeks ago i would have taken DBJ pick 8.

Haha, instead I'm getting some serious value in DBJ at 18 ;) People letting him slide cos Port haven't played a JLT match yet.

I don't really mind when we do it, but the absolute key is that THIS MUST BE DECIDED IN THE POST-SEASON IN OCTOBER!!! Some teams are put at a significant disadvantage by having some JLT matches played and others not played. Plus this entirely changes the value of some rookie picks (for better and worse) therefore it is critical that everyone is on the same page from the beginning of the trade window.

I did message Nost last night after my pick.
Generally, I believe they prefer if both are pm'd, I know they've made that request in other comps. nost hasn't been on for a few days whereas Rids was on this morning so I guess it makes sense.

yeah its all good, I have Pmed both now. I wont be skipping, i got my pick ready to roll and I love it.

So here's my issue. It's been over 24 hours since a pick was last made. Sure, there was a debacle surrounding the fact that the more inactive member of the dynamic duo was PM'd over the more active one, but there has to be a point where the call is made to get on with it. This draft started late enough as it is, and from a personal perspective as someone with late picks, every moment that passes it putting me at further disadvantage because of the poor administration, lack of planning and general inactivity in this competition. The JLT series is well underway and I daresay a number of the players picked so far wouldn't have been touched or gone as early as they did had this started before it began.

I'm not trying to be rude or offensive, simply providing a blunt opinion on the state of proceedings. I want Euros to have a future, but there seriously has to be more of a system and an atmosphere rather than making this a chore for everyone involved.

With pick 34 we'll finally take that backup ruckman! Playing as a KPF this season, eeeeeeasily best 22 at his club, giving Ryder a chop out in the rucks. Come on down, Jackson Trengove!

Now Rico amd I are loving the punty nature of this pick. Its no secret that key position fwds take a long time to develop, but we feel we've got the ability to invest some time into this kid. Two averages in the 50s in his first two seasons, exactly the same as one Buddy Franklin in his first two years ;) Come on down the Bashers Buddy understudy... Paddy McCartin!

Aaaand Bashers are done!

Zip messaged, will update OP when I get home

I never got a message to say this had started or it was our pick. The only message I saw was the message Holz sent yesterday at 2:30pm when I logged in 5 mins ago......

Anyways, will need to try and chat to Nostra who hasn't been online since 21 Feb. Pretty disappointing that we have been skipped after waiting weeks for it to start.

I apologise for the confusion everyone.

Nost and Rids have always been fantastic in the euros and across the boards.

Really its my fault for starting the draft soo late.

Just a reminder Rids and Nost are co-coaches. As are Ele and Rico

Svalbard will go with Short for our last pick

He's just turned 21, played 16 games last year... a little short (pun intended), but he's young enough that hopefully he can get a couple of cms on him still :P

Ticks our box as a defender, hopefully he can add a couple of points to his average and be good depth for us this year :)

We pass on our remaining picks

Fun fact i moved up to rookie 8 to pick this guy up. I wanted him all along last year but took Cooney in the rookie knowing i could take this guy in the essendon top up. Was worried he wouldnt last so as i said traded up.

no brainer at this pick.

I think I'll take a punt on Alex Witherden. I think he was pick 22 in the national draft and would have been taken higher had he not broken his leg. A running half back or outside mid type. Has the potential to be a steal for rookie pick 63! I think Holz has 1 more pick and we'll be done for the draft :)

As this is the last pick can discuss who i was going to take.

i really wanted to take Darcy Cameron but need the defender more.

Sam Collins.

Draft Over
