Very nice MTTY, read through it all and looks good :)

I would have to say, we need boards inside Worlds, so Euros, Worlds and English is seperated.

Couple of questions MTTY -

Is there any restriction on the numbers of each position you draft?  I know you have to end up with 4 def, 4 mids etc. playing each week, but does your squad have to have a certain amount of each?

Also - what happens with DPP players - can they play in both positions?

Thanks

To answer your questions Spinking:

No there's no limit but be smart about it as injuries make take their toll.

Yes DPP players can play both their available positions.

Hey guys i've exceeded the pm limit for the hour. So could someone do me a favour and direct Colliwobblers to this thread.


@ Tabs - a reply to your pm. since we have such large number of teams i think we will draft until all players are taken. I am open to ideas for other options though.

Was having trouble finding a stadium close enough for the Crosby locals, an hour later of searching came across this website that you just click on a region in England and it comes up with all the stadiums and the capacity of it in that area
If your still looking for one this should help ;)

Yup. SC still average SLIGHTLY higher, but it could be done with a handicap....

Perhaps next year the top 8 teams from each comp can do a  Shouldn't add too much work......

The top 8 from the Poms can be decided by MTTY... Worlds/Europe from ladder positions?

8 Teams each, 24 teams overall. Each team plays every other team once (16 rounds, plus the intra-club matches already played by these teams).

Top 8 = Finals

How about at the end of each round the average score is calculated....

The 8 Worlds Team average 150
The 8 Euro Teams average 136
The 8 English Teams average 125

The average of these 3 scores is 137.

So you subtract 13 from every Worlds team, add 1 to every Euro team and add 12 to every English team....


yeah?

Post by: monstrum on June 22, 2012, 03:10:28 PM
it would be more work but u could just make it so when playing cross league matches u just get all 3 scores from each system for each player?...

or just the 2 but for a tri-nations series probly fairer to use all 3 no matter who's playing?
Title: Re: English 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: PowerBug on June 22, 2012, 03:15:09 PM
You can't cross scoring systems because some players are specialists in one game where they might not be in the other. e.g. using Harry Taylor's DT scores will be unfair if he's in a Worlds side, coz his SC score is alot higher.
Title: Re: English 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: monstrum on June 22, 2012, 03:31:47 PM
well thats why u get both scores so it'd balance out wouldn't it

my idea is..

the top 4 from each league go into pools probly 4 pools of 3 to start (this can be worked out later)

each team only has 7 players in each game

2 DEF
2 MID
2 FWD
1 RUC

no emergencies, each player will get the scores from all 3 scoring systems. I don't see how this could be unfair...?

this's only a ruff idea but it'd be cool if something could be made up.

The idea would be for it to be hard to win and basically a knock out after the first round or so..as long as a League dosn't have a massive advantage it could be fun

I was hoping for more as it will be a new year (that is if your refering to the limit of 6 i had) IN the euro I think we will have 10 in the offseason

Post by: bomberboy0618 on June 24, 2012, 03:39:05 PM
If its possible I thought we could pick 1 team from each league to represent the league, and then to make them all equal, get the scores from all 3 formats and get the average of that.

Since we are drafting every AFL listed player atm, what happens if one of them get's delisted at the end of the season?? As some will, i've looked everywhere and couldn't find anything yet. :)
Title: Re: English 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Spinking on July 24, 2012, 07:37:20 PM
I think from memory you get additional picks at the end of the National draft so we all end up with the same squad size - Someone else might want to confirm or clarify that...
Title: Re: English 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Ringo on July 24, 2012, 07:39:25 PM
As I see it from an amendment and been trying to find it we are selecting 39 players in this draft.  I believe that if we have a player who is delisted or retired we can select a replacement from the left over players to replace.

Title: Re: English 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Holz on July 24, 2012, 08:45:26 PM
The best soulution is to do what the euro does and have a cap of players. It makes rookie drafts interesting each year as you pick up missed players. Also if you have players retire than you can fill up your list with more national draft picks and rookie picks.
Title: Re: English 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: MTTY on July 24, 2012, 09:02:00 PM
I asked earlier in one of the threads if people were fine with a cap (which i suggested one) but only had limited response. Forgot to post it here, so i'll find it and post here now.  :)

Post by: Ringo on July 24, 2012, 09:05:04 PM
Thanks Mtty been trying to find it as well where you had 39 from this draft then 4 and then 3 from memory but have not been able to.  Must be in the actual draft pages but 190 pages a bit much to trawl through.

this.

you also have to cap squads surely/ otherwise season after season the lists just grow and grow? makes no sense and does not mirror the AFL teams list rules.

i think as per your other thread MTTY the view there seemed to be that a cap on the squads was best.

i also think that if you draft a player in this draft and they retire you do not get extra picks for it you just top up your list in future drafts.

where in future drafts due to the squad being capped you will have to delist players to add new draftees to your squd, if you have a player retire then that's just one less you need to delist come the next seasons nationel / preseason drafts.

likewise if you have a full squad you are happy with come pre season draft and DO NOT want to delist any of them you can just PASS in the pre season draft as ou don't want to replace any players in your existing "capped squad".

just my 2c
Title: Re: English 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Ringo on July 25, 2012, 04:35:53 PM
My opinion for what it is worth that if any of our players are delisted we get compensatory picks at the conclusion of all drafts from players remaining after the Rookie/Pre Season Draft.

Id probably agree with this.  Maybe additional picks at the end of the pre - season draft to take your squad to the desired numbers

Post by: Spinking on July 29, 2012, 10:33:32 AM
Just a thought - May well have been suggested before so apologies if it has:

We already have the:

World 15s - WXV
Euro 15s - EXV

and will potentially have the:

Asian 15s - AXV (I assume)

Just wondering if having this officially called the English 15s might be confusing - creates a second EXV or maybe EnXV

Would it be better to call it the British 15s, UK 15s, Crown 15s, or something like that?

Not complaining or anything, just a suggestion for clarity...

Title: Re: English 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: ossie85 on July 29, 2012, 10:44:29 AM

I understand the logic behind Spinking being appointef, but I abstained from voting as I felt it was not right, as it was MTTy's idea, and it felt a little like a takeover. Just my opinion before anyone questions me. I discussed it with Ringo and he helped me understand the reasoning, but I still felt it not right to vote.

Just one question? How many list changes are we allowed to have, and what are the rules around passing a player on as to whether that counts, and whether a draft pick counts or not? Cheers

Thanks for the honesty with those comments Fletch. I appreciate your position and think many of the coaches would agree with you. I really don't want this to be seen as a takeover, it is still MTTYs comp until he is able to clarify what is going on.

It obviously just needed action as there was a backlog of trades, and coaches were becoming frustrated at the stagnation that caused. There is also a lack of clarification on the drafts, and some of the trading rules that have been a bit confusing.

In regards to your question about list changes, my interpretation of the existing rules is that you are allowed 5 movements in this trade period, and that draft picks don't count. MTTY said this:

1. A list change will occur for both teams if this happens: Player x for Player y
2. A list change will occur for both teams if this happens: Player x for Draft pick
3. A list change will not count if: Draft pick x for Draft pick y

This is not my preferred method of measuring the movements, but it's what we have to work with now. I think it needs to be reviewed for next season though.

Thanks Spinking for your reply.

I'm happy enough for the temporary fix, but just the way some coaches worded their comments made it sound more permanent...

Thanks also for the clarification.  I just feel the trading rules are a little ambiguous.

I respect your view Fletch, but do not agree with you at all.

I have nothing against MTTY and I hope he is well. Seriously.

When people were ripping into him and the competition about trades I stuck up for him and tried to help out, I genuinely don't have a bad feeling in my body for anyone least of all MTTY.

This is not personal, it is administrative and something that just had to happen, probably 4 weeks ago to be fair.

I don't want to get into it but if a coach in this competition is unresponsive for 2 weeks without a good reason provided they are sacked. It's pretty clear and it's not my rule, but it is a rule.

http://www.fanfooty.com.au/forum/index.php/topic,62789.msg808582.html#msg808582

I am more than happy for MTTY to return to run "this" competition, but I would think it a huge injustice to expect Spinking or anyone to put in a huge amount of time and effort just to be pushed aside when MTTY returns if he returns.

I think the co-administration idea is fair to both, especially fair to MTTY given his own rules about going missing...
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Fletch74 on October 21, 2012, 03:55:21 PM
Again I respect your view too CW.

I'd agree with you entirely if MTTY was away for a long period of time, but if he is away for 2 weeks, then he should.be sacked... You don't know what's happened to them in their personal life. I know I once had a situation where I cut myself off from the world for a few weeks and didn't really explain myself to anyone, before forums were even thought of... lol

Who knows what has happened to him, but I think it is unfair that someone should be sacked. I don't mind the co-admin thing, and I'm sure MTTY would be fine as well, but not sacked. I think that is a bit harsh!

Hence, I am fine to continue my affiliation with the comp, as long as it is not a takeover. I just chose to abstain as I felt it was right. I knew that my vote would have little impact, as it stands I would have voted for Spinking, but just felt right to sit it out.
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Colliwobblers on October 21, 2012, 04:33:32 PM
Never a takeover , I made it sound that way early on - and to be honest being in MTTY's role I have high expectations of him / myself.

But Nails and Ringo got it right in suggesting keeping MTTY in his rightful place but getting him a "partner".

think the best of both worlds and can't say enough hoping MTTY is all ok, just wish for THAT reason (not knowing) more than anything to do with the competition that the clown had let us know!!!! :)

Stand up guy for sticking to your morals and abstaining, we can't all agree but the best we can do is be true to our morals so I take my hat off to you Fletch.

Think MTTY and Spinking will make a fine team, now we just need to find a moderator who can make Spinking a moderator for British so he can get to work...

Can't PM Monty... who else can do it....?

Post by: Spinking on October 21, 2012, 06:09:31 PM
Folks, seeking some opinions on this one, before I'll potentially put it to a vote.

We currently have a rules / trades committee who adjudicate in these areas. This committee originally consisted of MTTY, RooBoys!, CrowsFan, Boomz, Ziplock and ossie85. Obviously MTTY is not currently active, and today RB and CF have requested that they be released from the committee. Both were apologetic and I suspect would have continued on if I had pressed them. I am also unsure what role Ossie will play when he gets back involved in the site.

I am querying 3 different ways to go forward with this:

1. Just replace those who would like to leave with new committee members.

2. Reduce the size of the committee to 3 members who are all active. This is my preferred option as I think it will streamline the trade approval process

3. Do away with the committee, and implement a different system such as the WXV where all trades are voted on by all coaches, or like the EXV where the admin approves all trades except in a protest / dubious trade where it goes to a vote.

I am again conscious of my role as a caretaker here, and so if you feel that making a change like this is too extreme, please say so.  Offer your opinion and if there is agreement in a particular direction I will put it to a vote.

Post by: Torpedo10 on October 21, 2012, 06:54:45 PM
I think best way is to let the admin or co-admins decide like Asians. Seems the best way & no so called block voting on some trades.
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Colliwobblers on October 21, 2012, 07:06:56 PM
Happy for you / you & MTTY, to approve or decline trades, or  have a reduced 3 man committee.

However with a small 3 man committee i don't think one of the members should be a BXVs coach like there was in the original comittee.

As long as there is an appeals process hich is clear and laid out up front, i think it will be easier and more accurate to just approve /reject yourself.

with the appeals process only there for people to write an essay and explain why they really need the trade ( if uneven and blocked)
 
whatever you decide is fine by me, you just have to make it clear up front and then it is easy, most trades should pass anyway unless they are ridiculous so it isn't a hard process to rule on them. Unless you intend to be strict and try to ensure even trades every time, then you might be best with a committee :)

swan for blease = no

swan for sloanne / gaff / D Swallow = ok - it's not ridiculously uneven, but it isn't EVEN either....

swan for watson = yes

it's just hard when you get into that ok territory, some people will see it different ways so you need to be clear in advance what the grounds for trade approval will be, and then stick to the guidelines you lay out and there should be no issues....

I'll go with the crowd but would say..

1. You rule alone (you/mtty - when returns).
2. Small committee.
3. Large committee

in that order :)
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Ringo on October 21, 2012, 07:51:39 PM
For what is worth my opinion is that you/MTTY rule on all trades.

We have a committee of 3 coaches plus one alternate to be elected by all coaches to form an appeals committee to hear appeals and make decision if required. Reason for alternate is in the case that trade being appealed involves a coach on the committee. Appeals process will have to be documented so that fribilous appeals do not occur.

Can  suggest that the following rules for appeals be used.
Reason for trade rejection are published to both coaches involved.
Any appeal that is made to the committee must address why the reasons for rejection are not correct.
Committee then assesses the trades looking at both arguments and ruling on the trade.


Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Colliwobblers on October 21, 2012, 08:21:06 PM
+1 what Ringo Said. Still tehre has to be an ultimate power/ decision maker, be it the admin or the committee the result is the same.

But I'll go with what Ringo says, there are a few ultra-active AXVs and WXVs coaches I am aware of that are not involved with BXVs I would suggest grabbing 3 for the appeals committee and in the event of an appeal the 3 can vote and there will be a majority and all 3 are not involved in BXVs so no issue can be read into with their decision.

Just make sure the said committee coaches are not assistants in BXVs :)

Just think that will be cleaner, YOU Rule on trades, and in the event of an appeal it goes to an EXTERNAL panel. ?

I'm just waiting on 4 coaches to confirm they will be sticking around, before I'll advertise any available roles up. So far everyone Ive spoken to has committed to the comp, which is great.

I'll be reversing the snake in the Rookie draft tonight so that it runs the same way as the Nat, unless anyone has a strong opinion against that. The majority appeared to favour this idea, but we can put it to a vote if anyone would prefer that.

Most also seem to be in favour of a reduction, or dissipation of the trades committee. This will go to a vote, but I'll give it another day or two for anyone to add any comments or thoughts.

Regardless of whether it was/wasn't a takeover... if things didn't happen very soon there was going to be nothing to take over. An idea is just that unless someone sees it through. The competition was extremely close to being non-existent imo and this was needed and not an option. I know you discussed w/ Ringo the reasoning but that's my 2c.

If it wasn't for this, we wouldn't be talking about MTTY's comp, we'd be talking about the comp MTTY was thinking about running but never did.

I've now had 12 votes, all in favour of option 3. So from now on - I will approve or reject all votes, however you will have the right to appeal my decisions, in which case it will be referred to the appeals committee. You may do this for your own trades, or for the trades of others if you think they are really lopsided.

I'll update this in the rules thread, will rule on the outstanding trades and will appoint 2 new committee members to join Zip,to ensure this committee is active.

Title: An Announcement and a Question....
Post by: Spinking on October 24, 2012, 08:29:17 PM
Announcement

Today I'm pleased to announce that our trade appeals committee will now be staffed by coaches from other leagues, who are not participating in the BXV. Ziplock (EXV), MyChumps (WXV) and Jayman (AXV) will adjudicate any protested trades. This shouldn't be required often, but gives you the safety net that if you disagree with my judgement, there is an opportunity to challenge the ruling.

Question

I've PM'd MTTY a number of times, and he is now the only coach to not commit to the comp. I think it is definitely fair to give him the opportunity to return in his own time, but my question is: What do we do if he hasn't returned in time for the drafts? Plenty of time before that happens, but Im thinking he really needs to have reconnected by then otherwise his team will hold up the drafts and potentially muck up his team for the next person if he doesn't return. Any thoughts?
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: JBs-Hawks on October 24, 2012, 08:32:01 PM
If he's not back a week before the draft appoint an assistant to do draft research and draft for him? Reckon he will be back though he has been an FF member for a while so maybe just on holiday or something.

Post by: Colliwobblers on October 24, 2012, 09:19:31 PM
You can have Fisher Saints, nothing personal :) But i have no need of an assistant coach.

I would say letting Fisher draft for MTTY is a very generous offer given any of the rest of us would be sacked. If Fisher or another can't be found then there is only one option left.

Drafts are NOT that far away IMO...

National - Late November

Rookie/Preseason - Mid December

Let me know or tell Fisher to let me know if he wants to take on MTTYs assistant role or possibly his team if it comes to that so I can release him, don't want to sack him otherwise if he isn't required for MTTY.

Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Spinking on October 25, 2012, 08:25:09 PM
Righto folks.  Another rule that needs clarifying.  I am so confused about the list movements calculation that MTTY has left us with:

1. A list change will occur for both teams if this happens: Player x for Player y

2. A list change will occur for both teams if this happens: Player x for Draft pick

3. A list change will not count if: Draft pick x for Draft pick y

There are a hundred scenarios that aren't explained by this rule, several of which have already been encountered.  I've just been trying to tally how many movements we've made, and honestly Im starting to guess a bit.

Lets discuss it a bit but my suggestion is a slight change to make it more simple.  What if we all have 10 trades rather than 5, but every time a player leaves your team (whether they have been traded in previously or not) it counts as one player movement for your team.  This would be much simpler to calculate and hopefully much less confusing.

I am reluctant to change the system mid trade period, but at the moment I'm lacking confidence to tell coaches that they have reached their limit as it is really ambiguous.

Thoughts please.

Post by: BB67th on October 25, 2012, 08:57:53 PM
Why don't we make it 5 trades and every time someone moves its a trade? The whole idea of drafting a team is that you don't make so many moves, and if we have a second trade period we can trade more then anyway if we have to.

As the new administrator (assistant ::)) you should have complete control Spink and determibe new rules for the comp....

FisherSaints has offered to act as caretaker coach for MTTY until he returns, including both trade and draft periods. I like this idea because it gives MTTY more time to get back involved, but doesn't let that list stagnate. Someone needs to determine whether there are players to be delisted, areas should be strengthened etc. Fish is currently assistant at the Warewolves, but will be released if we agree that he is best used for this.

Haven't locked this in yet. Want to hear the coaches opinions first as I'm conscious of my role as a co-admin here. I do however see that the Hasting Hurricanes have had a number of players delisted, will have a couple of positional changes and have had more players changing teams than others. For this reason I think the list needs someone looking at it. Will make a call on it in a day or two once I've heard some more opinions.

My opinion Spinking is wait till we find out MTTY intention. Some of us also have had players retired or de-listed but according to rules will get compensation picks at the conclusion of the PSD so no real issues here.

Great to see more rivalries being locked in. Bring on the trash talk!  ;D

Well I was talking to Spink and he said that I could be caretaker coach. I would love to do it plus no one else has offered. I would like to do the trading as then I can be more of a part of the team rather then just drafting

Haven't locked this in yet. Want to hear the coaches opinions first as I'm conscious of my role as a co-admin here. I do however see that the Hasting Hurricanes have had a number of players delisted, will have a couple of positional changes and have had more players changing teams than others. For this reason I think the list needs someone looking at it. Will make a call on it in a day or two once I've heard some more opinions.
My opinion Spinking is wait till we find out MTTY intention. Some of us also have had players retired or de-listed but according to rules will get compensation picks at the conclusion of the PSD so no real issues here. If I were MTTY I would hate to have some one do some trading for me and perhaps trade players I wanted to retain. After all it his team until ownership is relinquished.
This. I don't think MTTY would be happy if he comes back and sees half his team traded, lots of which he had long term plans for. I believe Spinking should be able to draft for him (if MTTY is not back before then), but no trading.

i have to agree with BB here. Yes sure he is away atm with out letting us know ( and i really hope everything is ok ) but if i set up a comp and a team and went away for a bit i wouldnt want to come back to see my team changed. MTTY knows the trade period is on, so he can come on anytime to trade. There is also another trade period later he can trade in

I just looked at his team and whilst I would love to weasel some of his players off of him he doesn't have any gaping holes other then maybe needing to draft a forward or too.

We don't know his strategies so I say let him wait off if he's not back by December then maybe someone can look after his team in trade period 2.

Locking in the Leeds / Nottingham rivalry! Just need Bilston (Boomz), Grope Lane (Nails), Hastings (MTTY) Oxford (Noz), Swindon  (Hawka) and Swansea (Ringo) to lock in their rivalries and then the fixture will be released.

Thanks everyone for the comments and PMs regarding how we manage the Hurricanes in MTTYs absence. There appears to be general support for leaving the team intact until such time as MTTY has let us know what is happening.

My decision at this stage is that the team will remain intact until the drafts where a caretaker coach will do the drafting. We will revisit things again after that.

Haven't been able to list grounds for some teams as they aren't nominated in your team threads, so get those updated when you can.

Got a bit of a lull now before the Nat and Rookie drafts. Don't mind if we have a lack of activity now as long as everyone fires up again when it's time for the drafts. Perhaps in the meantime folks can check out our rules and information (http://www.fanfooty.com.au/forum/index.php/topic,68854.msg914483.html#msg914483) thread.

I'm for Administrator (Spinking - Sole at presnt - Joint if and when MTTY returns ). Administering MTTY team over the upcoming drafts.

It is not ideal but understandably ( he started this comp), everyone seems to want to extend to MTTY an unlimited amount of leeway so the only way to approach it is to have Spinking draft on his behalf and he SITS OUT trading - as others have said, better he misses the trade periods completely than have trades made he doesn't want to make....

and good job spinking, did you get my rivalry sorted ?

Again I respect your view too CW.

I'd agree with you entirely if MTTY was away for a long period of time, but if he is away for 2 weeks, then he should.be sacked... You don't know what's happened to them in their personal life. I know I once had a situation where I cut myself off from the world for a few weeks and didn't really explain myself to anyone, before forums were even thought of... lol

Who knows what has happened to him, but I think it is unfair that someone should be sacked. I don't mind the co-admin thing, and I'm sure MTTY would be fine as well, but not sacked. I think that is a bit harsh!

Hence, I am fine to continue my affiliation with the comp, as long as it is not a takeover. I just chose to abstain as I felt it was right. I knew that my vote would have little impact, as it stands I would have voted for Spinking, but just felt right to sit it out.
Ok, I've now seen that MTTY has been back on site and created his own phantom draft, but hasn't popped his head in here...

What happened to deter him from continuing with the BXV's?
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Fletch74 on November 08, 2012, 08:51:54 AM
I've sent him a PM. I think its best he at least has a right of reply before that is done CW.

Something has pissed him off. Wouldn't it be best if he does come back and participate, and everything is forgotten, rather than just sack him, get a new manager, and waste time!!

You're right about one thing though, no other manager would probably be allowed to do this, but if they had a clear explanation, then it would be ok, so lets see if MTTY has one as well.

I'm sure he's been contacted, but has not responded, hence the reason for your opinion, but I've explained a few things in my PM about what my view was beforehand, so I'm hoping that might smooth things over. Probably won't, but lets wait and see.

For those that may not have picked up MTTY has posted this in the front bar.

As you can see he will continue to coach his team in The British, Hand the reigns over to spinking as controller of British but provide input as required.

Do not think we need to pursue reasons why, given his comments, and just respect his statement and privacy. It may be advisable to recommend he find an assistant coach though to cover him should these circumstances arise again.

It's all good, lads.   He has handed back his EXV team, passed the admin role at the BXV to me, and is keen to continue managing the Hastings Hurricanes.  He has been apologetic for the absence, which I think is reasonable.

Post by: MTTY on November 08, 2012, 01:48:51 PM
Here is the idea that i had before my leave of absence everyone, i've shared it with Spink and opinions would be great. (Although since the rookie draft is fairly compromised with delistings compo etc. we could hold off a year too)

Hey guys i was thinking towards the future of British 15s and a possible expansion club.

My thoughts on how it works


Club inclusion year - 2015

The expansion team will come into play in 2015 (when the lists are down to 42 for all the other clubs).

Drafting 2012

The expansion club will be allowed the following in 2012

Rookie Draft

Pick #55
Pick #56
Pick #57
Pick #58
Pick #59
Pick #60
Pick #61
Pick #62

These picks may be taken on unselected AFL players, un picked National draft or Rookie draft players.

Up and coming Talent Scheme

In this scheme the team is allowed the following:

Pick #1 - Has to be a mature aged player outside the AFL that could be drafted before the 2015 season kicks off
Pick #2 - A player from the 2013 draft class (next years draftees, not this years that is not selected in the mini draft)

List as of 2013 - 10 players


2013 Drafting

Rookie Draft

Pick #1
Pick#2
Pick#3
Pick#22
Pick#23
Pick#24
Pick#43
Pick#44


Up and coming Talent Scheme

In this scheme the team is allowed the following:

Pick #1 - Has to be a mature aged player outside the AFL that could be drafted before the 2015 season kicks off
Pick #2 - Has to be a mature aged player outside the AFL that could be drafted before the 2015 season kicks off


List as f 2014 - 20


2014 Drafting


Rookie draft

1st pick of each round (3 rounds)

2 picks at the end of the draft


Regional talent

Pick#1 - Has to be a player from the upcoming draft in the Victorian Region

Pick#2 - Has to be a player from the upcoming draft in the South Australian Region

Pick #3 - Has to be a player from the upcoming draft in the West Australian Region

Pick #4 - Has to be a player from the upcoming draft in the New South Wales Region

Pick #5 - Has to be a player from the upcoming draft in the Tasmanian Region

Pick #6 - Has to be a player from the upcoming draft in the Queensland Region

Pick #7 - Has to be a player from the upcoming draft in the Northern Territory Region

Note - these must be used by a set date before the actual AFL's draft - TBD


Recruiting

The new club will be allowed to do the following three times to three different clubs -

Each club must select 5 players on its list to restrict. After that the new club is then allowed to pick a player from three different teams lists (then the club who had a player taken will be delivered with compensation)


National Draft

Pick#1
Pick#2
Pick#3
Pick#5
Pick#7
Pick#9
Pick#25
Pick#44
Pick#63

Trading

2 Mini Draft picks - These picks can be used on any player for the 2015 draft class (no birthday restricton) But they have to be used prior to the start of the 2015 season, thus they are making a bit of a guess on the best talents in that year.


List as of 2015 (without taking into account mini draft trading) - 44 (hopefully atleast 46 with mini draft trades)



Your thoughts???

Pity he didn't communicate better, leave it for us/ me to think the worst.

I obviously retract my previous statements and happy to hear all is well with MTTY, which is the main thing, which is also something I have asked the guy via PM yet still had no contact from him.

whatever - all good,guess i'll go look for the front bar post, just happy to hear he is well.

I do like the expansion idea MTTY, but I don't know how it would quite work in reality. Would someone be prepared to draft a team over 4 years before actually getting it to play matches? I know I wouldn't.

I think a worlds or euro or asians coach would as they have existing teams to manage so the fact this one wouldn't start until 2015 wouldn't concern them.

and drafting seems to be the most fun of running a team, that and trading.

I like the idea, they setup MTTY has laid out looks pretty good and its 2 seasons (2013, 2014) on the sidelines only, team is included in 2015.

mixes it up a bit....

I didnt get it at first :-[ now i do after reading the more intellectual guys comments who did, i also like the idea 8)

think the teams coach coming in could get a few more advantages though. maybe being allowed to trade in 2013/14 and more trades in 2015 + a longer team list then others :-\

Good work on sparking the debate MTTY. I'll make the same comments here that I did via PM.

I generally like the concept except I question whether it is needed. With 18 teams already this would mean less chance for teams to make the finals, a slight weakening of the quality of teams, and the need for the introduction of a bye.

I also don't like the idea of it starting this season, as there are quite a few other challenges to sort through including sorting out the delistings, and getting the comp working well in its inaugural season.

I also felt that a coach might be reluctant to coach a team for 2 years without it actually playing, and this might potentially remove some quality players from the comp during that time.

Anyway those are my thoughts. As I said to MTTY though I reckon it's a good debate, and if the mood out there is that it is a good move I'll get behind it. Just need to be convinced that its good for the comp ;)

Post by: Spinking on November 12, 2012, 05:22:50 PM
Might be best to bring the compensation rule discussions over to this thread.  Just got a couple of thoughts:

1.  I am not keen to push forward with expansion this season, due to the complexity around our initial rookie drafts and compensation picks.  I reckon we discuss it towards the end of next season, and keep MTTY's model in mind for how it might be implemented.

2. The compensation rules should only be in play for the intial season. It's going to be a bit of hard yacka to ensure the compo system works well, and this is only fair after we drafted our teams mid season, but in future seasons I think delisted players should just result in an extra rookie draft pick, unless there are significantly unusual circumstances.

3. I suggest that immediately after the actual drafts, all delisted players come off all our lists and picks are assigned appropriate compensation according to Ringo's system.  This gives coaches a chance to hold onto players to see if they will get picked up.  For example Fletch will know by then if Gram has been picked up by a new team. 

4. Seeing as we only drafted the teams recently, I wouldnt think there will be scenarios where we want to delist players who are still on an AFL list, but if this occurs I don't think there should be an early compensation - just an extra pick after the Rook Draft.

Any thoughts or arguments?  :)
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Ringo on November 12, 2012, 06:04:57 PM
Just copied my proposal from the Trade thread so it can be seen,  Basically it models what Spinking is saying but offers what I consider appropriate picks based on when we drafted players initially and what pick they were in relation to the team selection.  Eg Gramm was Fletchs 8th pick despite being pick 144 overall so you can see possibly why I have suggested as below.

Agree that this season possibly too early to expand with re adjustment of teams and compo picks.


It will be hard to get a purely Fair system but hopefully in Fletch's case Gram gets picked up. Maybe just amend my proposal to any picks under 180 (Top 10 picks for all teams in the Draft) have a priority pick in the Rooke Draft eg 1st picks. This may equate to losing a top 10 pick from your side.

Making the suggestion as follows: (I have redrafted slightly and leave it open to debate)
Draft picks under 180 - Priority picks in the Rookie Draft. (Top 10 picks per team in Draft) Currently one pick that is first pick in the Rookie draft
Draft picks 181- 270  Compensation picks after Round 1 (these were picks 11 - 15 in draft) Currently 4 picks
Draft Picks 271 - 360 Compensation picks after Round 2 (these would be picks 15 - 20 in draft) Currently 4 picks
Draft Picks 361 - 450 Compensation picks after Round 3 (these would be picks 20 - 25 in Draft) Currently 4 picks
Balance after Round 4


Basically this means that we are giving priority picks in the Rookie draft to teams that have lost players from their top 25 picks.

Rules around this would be that the order would be on the basis of picks and that the player no longer is playing in the AFL eg retired or not picked up by another club.  If you still choose to delist one of these players that have been picked up by another club you will revert to picking after the Rookie draft.

Hope this makes sense. But really needed to concentrate on getting suitable compensation for a team losing a top 10 pick. To show my Fairness could have made it top 15 and included my own 2 players who are retired and de-listed but I believe a top 10 pick really deserves it if not picked up.

Please feel free to pull apart or discuss further (Originally thinking next 10 picks for the compo picks after each round but thought that may be a bit too generous.)
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: JBs-Hawks on November 12, 2012, 06:34:22 PM
I think all compensation picks should be at the end of the rookie draft. Our original draft is over what pick people went is trivial now. If you lose a high pick that's just bad luck every player on your list is now even.
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Ringo on November 12, 2012, 06:42:39 PM
Although original draft is over we were drafting players for next years competition and some of the delistings and retirements were not known when we listed.  I was just attempting to work out a fair way to compensate teams that have lost dome of their top drafted players through these issues.  If we were drafting we would not be taking these players. One of the reason why drafting a team prior to final list lodgements is a little dangerous.

Know how you feel Fletch - I have 12 retirements/delistings in worlds, Like me you will be hoping some get picked up.

I have modified my list to reflect the latest 3 delistings and relative picks as well Spinking.  Also have removed Gillies from list now he has signed with Demons.

Will repost updated list in this thread.

Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Spinking on November 13, 2012, 07:24:54 PM
Righto chaps.  Here is my proposal about the compensation rule amendments.  I've included all of Section 4 (Rookie Draft) and have put the new section and changes in RED.  It's essentially a formalisation of the general consensus that has already been discussed.  If there are any major queries we will discuss them and put to a vote if necessary.  :)

4.1 In the foundation season of the league the Rookie Draft will be conducted in a snake format, in the opposite direction to the Initial Draft.

4.2 In the foundation season only, compensation picks will be awarded to teams who lose players delisted by an AFL club.  If these players are redrafted by a new club, no compensation picks will be awarded.  In the evening after the AFL Pre-Season and Rookie Drafts (December 11th 2012) all players no longer listed with an AFL club will be removed from their team list.  The team will then receive compensation picks in the following manner:

Players picked in the top 180 of the initial draft = Compensation pick prior to 1st round rookie draft
Players picked 181 - 270 in the initial draft = Compensation picks after round 1 of the rookie draft
Players picked 271 - 360 in the initial draft = Compensation picks after round 2 of the rookie draft
Players picked 361 - 450 in the initial draft = Compensation picks after round 3 of the rookie draft

These compensation picks may not be traded, and this process will not be repeated for future drafts

4.3 All future drafts will be looped commencing with the team finishing last the previous season.

4.4 Each team will be allocated 3 picks which may be used in the draft, or traded on to other teams.

4.5 Players selected in the rookie draft must be currently on an AFL list, and must not be currently listed by any British 15s team

4.6 At the conclusion of the rookie draft all teams must have 46 currently listed AFL players.  Teams not meeting filling this quote will receive additional picks at the conclusion of the rookie draft, in the same order as previous rounds.  These additional picks may not be traded.

4.7 All compensation picks will be awarded at the discretion of the administrator.  These may be awarded in abnormal circumstances which significantly affect the team in question.

Folks - The 2013 Fixture is complete and is available to view here:

http://www.fanfooty.com.au/forum/index.php/topic,68863.msg914782.html#msg914782

I'm adding in the home grounds now - but I can't find grounds listed for: Staines, Grope Lane, Bilston, Manchester or Liverpool.  Can those coaches please let me know where there teams will be playing and update it on their threads.  Thanks!

Also, we've got a spare round mid season, for some representative matches.  Anyone got any ideas?

I have done a draw using Manchester and Liverpool as the border for north.  Grope Lane is not a town in its own right but a number of towns have this as a street so for balancing have included in North.

North
Bradford
Crosby
Hebden Bridge
Huddersfield
Leeds
Liverpool
Manchester
Newcastle
Grope Lane

South
Bilston
Birmingham
Hastings
Oxford
Nottingham
Staines
Swansea
Swindon

I like it!  Judging by that list, I'm sure we all know the North will be superior - all the gun coaches and players hail from that way :D

Seriously it does look very even.  Premiership favorites Birmingham down south but some quality performers in the North squad.


Reckon the highest ranking coach from each side of the border coaches the rep team, the coaches vote on it, or we get some externals?

sounds fair, the leading coach in each of the north and the south can captain, just name a cut off round for him/her to be appointed and away we go...

cant have it run by committee be too messy and time consuming getting agreement on the team to name for the clash?

unless you had all the coaches from each of the north and south make a part of the starting team.

1 - mids
2- fwds
3-def
4-ruck
5-utilities
6- captain
7- emergencies
8- ? vice captain - bit of a nothing contribution
9- ? ? ?

Congratulations to Kilbluff who will be taking over Management of the Birmingham Bombers from Holz.  Holz will be remaining as assistant and mentor, which is great as he is one of our most respected and knowledgable coaches.  Thanks to Holz for giving the opportunity to an up and comer.

As the coaches will know from my PM it is also my intention to stand down as coach of the Falcons and remain as an independent administrator of the league.  All the responses I've received to this thus far have been supportive so I'll advertise the position shortly.  I wont be remaining on in any capacity at the club as I intend to become removed from any loyalty to any club.

Post by: picker_man on November 29, 2012, 04:56:27 PM
Spink i really think we should look at having a vote for a trade period between the end of the nat draft and rookie draft.

I have plenty of reasons why but the main one would be you've just appointed 2 new head coaches who have been left with very little list movements if they wanna change there team. I think Sid has one left after we've already done a 2nd period trade before he was the coach and whats he gonna do with that if he doesnt like his team haha

Plus i need a ruck and fwd lol ;D

With the rookie Draft starting on 11th December would only have a very small window though.

Have we completed the National Draft yet. I am happy for a second trade period if all coaches agree (although I may not participate unless good offers come up),  can I suggest though that all trades must be completed by 8th December to allow trades committee to rule on trades
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Spinking on November 29, 2012, 05:54:45 PM
Happy to put it to a vote if the interest is there, and I understand those reasons. I suppose my reluctance to allow excessive trading to ensure there is reasonable consistency in teams.

Maybe another option could be to change the next trade period cap from 5 to 10?

If anyone has an opinion either way put it forward.

Spinking is going to be away for health reasons for an undetermined amount of time, effective immediately.

We need to sort out a temporary administrator for the BXVS.

I am not sure if MTTY has the time but he would be the ideal and obvious choice. Otherwise possibly one of the other candidates we voted on to run the competition in the interim.

Discuss ideas.Or we could just make Ringo do it :)

Spinking has not made his health issues public however a PM to him to wish him the best would be a nice gesture from people I think.

Assuming that MTTY still doesn't have the time to do this I think that Ringo would be the most appropriate interim admin.

I agree, hope Spink gets back on his feet soon. I would also agree that MTTY or Ringo would be prime candidates for an interim admin.

Thanks for the vote of confidence and I will do what I can to assist but I have some personal issues at the moment which may mean being absent for a day every now and then for the next couple of months.
MTTY can assist you over this period. Not sure whether we want a draft before draft as we now only have a week and do not think it is viable my opinion.  Would suggest we start draft on 12th December (11th December after PSD completed if person with 1st pick available)  with only 4 rounds and compensation picks should get through in a week and we start 2nd trade period on completion.

Do not think we have voted/agreed on compensation picks for de listed players at this stage.  Happy to be proved wrong though. Know it is in thread discussion but did not see where we agreed or voted, on the compensation proposals.

why haha and nah pickers?

you are on a lot and seem a switched on guy. We need someone to step up in Spinkings absence, I would not be opposed to anyone willing to put in the work to be given the responsibility.

Ringo has a lot on and while he is willing to and always does help a lot he can't do everything or be on all the time, so a stand in administrator is still required.

MTTY is also great but also stated he cant be on as much as he used to be and we don't want to pressure people who have stepped back a little to over commit themselves again.

but we DO need to arrange someone with the rookie draft and following trade period fast approaching.

Actually not sure if there is a type but putting list together and running drafts all whilst making sure i obide by the rules let alone others, just doesnt excite me lol, happy to put my hand up to help though :)

Am happy to look after the rookie draft have posted picks in the Rookie Draft thread and will keep an eye on that. If anyone can locate a definitive list of players not yet picked up by a British Team would be happy.  I have posted what I know in the Rookie Draft Thread.
Will do what I can with the comp but do have some personal issues going on which may or may not effect my availability.

Check out the last few posts in this thread for the rookie draft and feel free to comment on the rookie draft.

Thanks Jay and BB.  One thing that needs to be done and I am open to suggestions from you both is to ascertain what players are still left over from the drafts. so we can list them for the next draft.  This will make it a little easier on coaches.

Had thought of using the Asians thread and doing a cross reference to the British Draft.  The British draft did not have an initial list whereas Asians did.  Individual team threads are not up to date either which would assist.

As far as I know we are not in a trade period currently due to proximity of draft.  However if the majority want a a trade period to expire on Monday night at 8:00pm happy to arrange. Only issue will be trades committee approval.

Do not forget my post a few up detailing draft picks.

Post by: Ringo on December 06, 2012, 09:46:39 PM
To clarify as I think people are being confused by trading and Draft:

The Rookie Draft will commence on December 12th at 8am.

There will be 3 rounds of regular selections, followed by as many additional rounds as are necessary to replace players lost to retirement or delisting. These picks will continue to be taken in the same snaked order as the rookie draft until each team meets its required size of 46.

Following the completion of this rookie draft the next trade period will open up.

Looking through for who is not picked, there is the list on the front page of the national draft of players not picked by club. Kilbluff has a post a few up in this thread with the last round of picks in the national draft I can also cross off. Then I can go through all those remaining on the list and check that none of them have been drafted at all. How does that sound?

I have updated KB's list in the National Draft thread but just concerned a player or 2 may have been missed.  Just the analytical mind in me coming out. Just looking at how to double check.  Concern I have there is 71players on the list so to ensure we can get our full quota of players. If 71 is correct then we will need at least another 47 players to be rookie listed or delisted players picked up to enable all teams to be filled.

We will be finalising draft order after the PSD and Rookie AFL draft next Tuesday and hoping to get draft underway at 8:00am next Wednesday.  Also hoping to list all players available prior to the draft all being well.

I maybe off line from this afternoon till tomorrow afternoon due to the current personal issues I have.

You aren't able to delist players. If you didn't want them you shouldn't have drafted them. You shouldn't be able to get compensation just because you decide that you now don't want a player anymore. This is also what has been laid down as the rules in other threads.

cant find any rules about delisting. and im nopt tying to be a smartar$e or pick a fight, but if a coach wanted to delist someone surely they should be able to (before the rookie draft was done, so it cant be done now) and then get a pick at the end of the rookie draft for that player??
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Ringo on December 13, 2012, 10:04:29 PM
As this is the initial draft of the competition one would assume that there would be no de-listings of player prior to start of the competition. This was one of the reasons why if delisted players were picked up by other clubs you kept that player.
As a secondary consideration as well with the number of players we have available it would be highly likely that yopu may have to select the player de-listed if he is still available at end of draft.
No delistings occurred to my knowledge in Euros or Worlds in their initial drafts.
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Justin Bieber on December 13, 2012, 10:07:20 PM
Yeah what's the point of delisting... You will get last round compo. If you delist it wouldn't get compo before a certain round, you would get the final rounds.

Hi Team BXV!

Just got home from hospital today and have spent some time looking through the threads. So impressed by the blokes who have jumped in to help out in my absence!!! The BXV has had a rocky path so far, but we've got such a good group of blokes that the comp will remain strong!

I'm still a fair way from getting on regularly. I haven't got much energy at this stage, so probably can't help out a great deal yet. While I love holding  the admin role for the comp I won't be offended if you want to give me the boot as it may be near the start of the season before I'm back regularly.

Thanks to those blokes who sent messages of support! Much appreciated!

Hi Team BXV!

Just got home from hospital today and have spent some time looking through the threads. So impressed by the blokes who have jumped in to help out in my absence!!! The BXV has had a rocky path so far, but we've got such a good group of blokes that the comp will remain strong!

I'm still a fair way from getting on regularly. I haven't got much energy at this stage, so probably can't help out a great deal yet. While I love holding  the admin role for the comp I won't be offended if you want to give me the boot as it may be near the start of the season before I'm back regularly.

Thanks to those blokes who sent messages of support! Much appreciated!
Great to see you out of Hospital and on the mend mate. Get well, take your time as your health comes first we will be fine and always here to help

There is no way in this world that we'd get rid of yourself as Admin, just because you're ill. We will welcome you back when you're fit and ready.

Great to see you out of hospital, and lets hope for a speedy recovery.

Just asking everyones thoughts on this idea following the draft:

To make it similar to the AFL we list 6 players from the list as rookies leaving team lists as 39 players and 6 rookies,

Similar rules to apply ie Rookies can only be promoted as a result of long term injury to a player.

Just throwing out there to make it similar to AFL Team management.

Am not really against or for it does not bother me

but Clubs can only have 4 rookie listed players now but i think if they have a spot on the main list they can rookie list someone instead of putting them on the main list

i think we could do 40 senior listed players then the rest rookie listed would be more realistic

but some BXV teams don't even have there team lists in there team threads which is actually in the rules to do so ::)

I will update the team lists in the team lists thread once the rookie draft is done and then people can use those lists so we all have the same layout and easy to use design. I like the idea of rookie list as well.

With 36 players still to be drafted and as we are in a Christmas Break as well just putting this out there.

With spinking hoping to return and to make his job easier.

Can I suggest that when you have drafted your full list of 45 players you send to Spinking and myself or post in this thread
http://www.fanfooty.com.au/forum/index.php/topic,69887.0.html

Your team lists in priority order Team to include 41 Senior players and 4 Rookie Players.

Reason for Priority order it will assist if we have to make decisions regarding emergencies etc.

Rookies will be under the same rules as AFL and can only be promoted as a result of long term injury. Still toying with the idea of allowing a mid year promotion though.

Realise there is a lot going on with the British but I am doing my best along with a couple of others to keep the momentum going while Spinking recuperates.

Our next task will be the second trade window opening.

There has been a bit of talk going in a couple of team threads as to who has the better teams so I am transferring mine here to get the thread stimulated. 

Here is my best xv

DEF: Mitchell Golby; Troy Chaplin; ;Dylan Grimes; Colin Garland/Sam Docherty
MID: Daniel Rich; Dane Swan; Steele Sidebottom;  Brent Moloney
RUCK: Nic Naitanui
FWD: Adam Goodes; Matthew DeBoer; Eddie Betts; Josh J Kennedy
UTIL: Leigh Montagna; Adam Cooney

Lot of depth in backs but not the high scorer have Patful, Maguire, Rising Star Daniel Talia Lachie henderson and Campbell Brown as back ups.

Can move Nat forward if need be with Jamar as ruck back up.

If any coaches also wish to withdraw from the competition can you PM me asap so we can arrange a replacement coach and not compromise the competition by having inactive coaches,

Realise we have got off to a shaky start but I will be doing all I can to make this as successful as possible.

Draw has been completed and is stickied as one of the 4 threads at top along with rules.  Please familiarise yourself with Rules 7 & 8 which will come into effect in the next few weeks.

Just working through the logistics of recording weekly results and other enhancements for the competition,

Any ideas please feel free to PM me or post in this thread,

yeah Ringo i'd get on the front foot PM the handful of coaches that are not active tell them they need to be more active or atleast respond to PM's if they don't improve just sack them

think this is a very important step in order to make this comp successful imo

if they cant take the time to explain why they wont be on or inactive then well.....

Yes I would probably agree with this. I know we went through a bit a while ago, but I think we have all worked hard to get the competition to where it is now and we need some dedicated coaches to see it through.

Using the discussion thread to get your ideas on the rule I am proposing for rookies.

Will not be offended if you shoot arrows through it as I see the British as your comp as well and although I have final say will put things out in this thread for discussion.

Rules for Rookies:
1. Each list to comprise 4 Rookie listed players,
2. Rookies can be promoted when a Long term injury has been notified, Rookie promotion to be notified to Administrator for confirmation.
3, Any time after Round 13 one Rookie may be promoted to Senior list,  Rookie promotion to be notified to Administrator for confirmation.

At conclusion of Season you may promote rookies to your senior list but they will count as a list movement,  (To offset this I am proposing to have trade period 1 (of which this is part) capped at 15 list movements and trade period 2 at 8.

You may choose to delist rookies.  All delistings to be confirmed prior to National Draft.

Lists will be retained at 45 with 41 Senior Listed Players and 4 rookies.

For Draft Periods
National Draft you will draft players till your list reaches 41, 
Rookie Draft you will draft till you have 4 rookie listed players.

Thoughts appreciated and also if not clear,

Another item for discussion.

For those that are involved in Worlds you will note an Idol proposal.

For British I am Proposing we have a Knockout King.
Will be run as follows:
Each week the team of the Lowest scoring coach will be eliminated.
For the first 10 rounds Top team will be safe from elimination the following week.  Should this occur 2nd bottom team will be eliminated.
Winner will be known after Round 18.

Just a little extra for comments.

Post by: BB67th on February 09, 2013, 02:37:09 PM
My thoughts on the rookie system.

-Rookies should be allowed to be temporarily promoted when a long term injury has occurred, when the injured player comes back, the rookie goes back to the rookie list.
-How does the promoting after round 13 work? Does this mean you swap a player from the senior to the rookie list for good to keep the numbers even? Or do you then get 42 on the senior list and 3 on the rookie list?
-I think the only way you should be able to put rookies on the senior list for good is to upgrade them through the national draft.

Post by: kilbluff1985 on February 09, 2013, 02:38:14 PM
i like it all but 15 list movements is to many imo people are not going to promote all rookies and even then will still have 11 movements i think 10 is enough not 15

yeah like everything else but you should define LTI like 4 weeks+ or something

I think LTI is defined as when a player is moved to a LTI list in the AFL, you can do it in the British XVs as well.

15 list movements is way to many imo. I think we should promote 1 rookie upgraded after round 13 and temporarily promote 1 rookie per LTI. All the other rookies should be upgraded at the national draft like in AFL, so say we add another round into the national draft.

There has been a suggestion to have a mini trade period after NAB cup.

Can I have you thoughts on this proposal.

Thinking to be beneficial we run for from Sunday 10th March to Thursday Midday 21st March with a 3 movement limit. (Do not think we need to wait till after the NAB cup final as we would have seen enough by then)  Picked Thursday as you have lodge teams on Friday and need time to amend Team lists.

Please also remember to lodge current lists in Team Lists thread ASAP now.

If anyone is being disadvantaged by a trade, they shouldn't be doing it. Every trade should advantage everybody (some more than others for sure) otherwise why make the trade :).  Unless your team is perfect, you can always benefit by trading.

Another item for discussion -

With the split Rounds of the competition Rds 1,5 and 14 do we need Partial lockouts or just have Total lockout.

If implemented Partial lockout will apply to players only Captain and V/C will need to be set at initial lock out. Loophole can not be used for emergencies.

Thoughts

Additional trade period will not take place based on voting it was 7 each of the `14 coaches who have voted so will not go ahead. In westminster system of voting a tied vote is lost.

Just to clarify it is not intended to have a full rolling lock out only in Rounds 1, 5 and 14 where comp is split.

yeah stuff that. as a fellow administrator i say you can take your rolling "extra work" lockout and s...ve it   :)

maybe disappointing not to have a trade period for Os and Jukes but they liked the list already anyway so not so bad. I wouldn't have minded either way, these things are always contentious especially in a 7-7 vote

can't make everyone happy, not even half the time :)

Uncontested Possession: 2 Points - Any possession gained from a team mate (uncontested mark, handball receive)

Remember though you can promote a rookie to replace him as per the rookie rules.  Same will apply to coach who has Suckling just away from my main computer atm so can not check.
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Ringo on March 13, 2013, 03:08:18 PM
With getting close to first week of the competition Thought I would put a reminder here for all.

Team lists are to be lodged weekly in this thread.

http://www.fanfooty.com.au/forum/index.php/topic,70309.msg954798.html#msg954798

Also may familiarise yourself with the rules as well.

http://www.fanfooty.com.au/forum/index.php/topic,70282.0.html

Couple of rules still not finalised so will be sending out a vote to enable finalisation.  Will concern home ground advantage and non lodgement of teams. So please vote on the options given.

Also remember those that have Suckling and Johnson have the opportunity to promote a rookie as per the rules.

Also we will have rolling lockouts for the split rounds Rd 1, Rd 5 and Rd 14.  For Round 1 teams must be lodged by Bounce down on Friday 22nd March with any adjustments to teams by bounce down Thursday 28th March.  Players from Crows, Bombers, Dockers and Eagles will be set and can not be interchanged. For Rd 5 and 14 Teams playing on Thursday night will be locked but you have till bounce down Friday to change if required,

Post by: Colliwobblers on March 16, 2013, 02:22:25 PM
Teams can now be lodged in this thread - Rules have been restated here following voting as well.

http://www.fanfooty.com.au/forum/index.php/topic,70309.msg1023112.html#msg1023112

have also decided to assist me to give 20 Bonus points each week to teams updated with scores prior to midnight on the day of final match.

might want to clarify this Ringo.

In AXVS I am banning any modifying of a team post after lockout. ( poeple could change players) unlikely but possible - so no modifying your team lodgement post after lockout.

So with this updating our team lodgement posts in the thread with scores, do we MODIFY the post , post again? or quote our team post - so it is a new post?

and the deal is post the players scores for you in the same thread by midnight on the day of the last game = +20 points?
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Ringo on March 16, 2013, 02:50:42 PM
Just to clarify as Colli has asked explained in more detail in the thread but will also clarify here.

Rounds 1, 5 and 14 will have 2 lock outs The first one will be at Bounce in the first game of the Round and the 2nd at Bounce in the next game of the round

For Round 1 1st Lockout will be bounce of Crows Essendon Friday 22nd March and 2nd Lockout bounce of Carlton Richmond Game 28th March.  Players from Crows, Bombers, Dockers and Eagles are locked at first lockout and can not be changed at 2nd lock out.
For Round 5 1st Lockout will be at Bounce Bombers Pies Games 25th April and 2nd Lockout bounce of Tigers Dockers game 26th April.  Bombers/Pies players will be locked at Lockout 1.
For Round 14 1st Lockout will be at Bounce Eagles Bombers game 27th June and 2nd Lockout bounce of Swans Blues Games 28th June with Eagles and Bombers players locked at 1st lockout.
Captains and Vice Captains are required to be named before Ist Lock out and can not be changed.

When modifying teams in Partial lock outs you will be required to advise changes,

Regarding the 20 Bonus points it will apply if you modify your team lodgement with scores for the round.  Any cheating will involve a reprimand.  Bear in mind I have powers as moderator.

Hey guys, had an idea. If people want to work out their scores each week easily, just make a Sportal team with your best XV in it and get their scores as games finish. This would make it easier for everyone to get scores and easier for you to get the 20 points bonus. Also, I'm sure it doesn't really matter that you have a second team because you don't really have a chance of winning any prizes.

To clarify the 20 points.

At the moment the rule is Scores updated in the Lodgement thread by midnight on the day of final game of Round eg Round 1 will be midnight Monday night,

Have had a couple of PM's from some people who due to commitments can not meet the deadline so thinking of making it 10:00am day after,  Reason for this is wanting to be fair to all.   Please post thoughts on this or PM me.

Will mean weekly results will not be updated till afternoon will add to the suspense.

Can we have some discussion on rising Criteria on Rising Star Nominations:

Do we follow the AFL Rules under 21 and played less than 10 games of AFL. eg Clay Beams would be eligible because he has only played 8 AFL games.

Do we start our own rules and make it debut players under 21 this year.

Or do we change the award from Rising Star to Best inaugural year performance. Realise this brings in some mature age players.

I reckon opening it up for best player in the first year will probably be covered by the inaugural MVP.
Maybe just best player under 21?

This week we see our only split Round for the year -

Scores for Brisbane, Freemantle, Hawthorn, Port Adelaide, Richmond and Western Bulldogs Players will be added in Round 12.

With having to name team by Friday there is a possibility that there may be more outs from these clubs in Round 12.

Bit difficult to have a rolling lockout with 12 clubs already played so putting this out there for discussion.

Possible change For this week only we list 5 emergencies to cover balance of Round. 

Other Alternative is to allow interchange within the 6 clubs but may be messy hence the above suggestion.

Thoughts and any other ideas.

would have thought we would name our players available for round 11 and then they are locked, and before round 12 we name our round 12 players.

normal partial lockout rules. simple and in line with normal fantasy rules ?

sure we will not know how many round 12 players we will have playing, but we will be able to name extra round 11 players to be sure we can field a full team.

Understand that Colli - But just trying to think of the easiest way to administer - 

Would mean trying to forecast your Round 12 players and may leave you short.

Will see how discussion goes and put a vote out.

that would be the easy way to administer wouldn't it?  and too bad for us if we get greedy or make bad calls and don't have enough players from the round 12 games to field?

think it is pretty fair and easy the way you have done it, in AXVS the teams have to play every bye round :)

5 emergencies worked pretty well for Worlds last year

Rolling lock out is difficult (as Ringo said) with 12 teams one week, 6 the other.

Rolling lock out is difficult (as Ringo said) with 12 teams one week, 6 the other.

so you are suggesting no partial lockout, just name the team from both rounds ahead of round 11 and have 5 emergencies?

when we have a partial lockout for a round with split weeks it makes me wonder why we wouldnt for a round played over 2 rounds during the byes.....

still I don't mind, the added emergencies works too i guess....  might even make it safer/easier for teams...
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: ossie85 on June 01, 2013, 05:28:05 PM
The difference being that the split rounds are generally 1 or 2 games one week, the rest the next. It gives you a lot of flexibility.

This though you have 12 teams up front, and if you have a late change or withdrawal, it will be only blind luck if you can actually do anything about it (if you have 3 defenders play week 1, and the other defender in week 2 doesn't play, there's every chance the defender you would to replace them would have played week 1. The emergency system would work better imo
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Ringo on June 01, 2013, 06:03:06 PM
Thinking these 2 options to put to vote:

Option 1:
We treat as a partial lock out
Name full teams by Friday
Players playing week 1 locked
Players playing week 2 are not locked till the Friday Bounce final lock out allowing changes amongst these teams only including emergencies
3 emergencies to be named.

Option 2:
Name Teams on Friday Week one
5 emergencies named with no penalties for using out of position.

Any other suggestions or comments.

There's nothing wrong with it, it's similar to the old split rounds just you have more games in week 1 and discount some in week 2.

Yea not really a fan either, if they play two games you should get their average. And if a players team plays the first round but isnt named and then gets named the following round you should be able to play them too.

Post by: Nails on June 15, 2013, 09:58:44 AM
Not really fair to get TWO games from a player...

That'd be unfair to players who have those lots of players in the bye rounds. Say you're playing a team who has hardly any bye players but his players don't get selected rd 11 but do in rd 12

That's unfair as he has two chances to have his players named but you only have 1.

Post by: Nails on June 15, 2013, 10:48:12 AM
I don't see what's wrong with it? It should always be the first week, it's the same as Worlds really.

It's just like a split round you get the players who play the first week and their 2nd game doesn't exist

It's unfair if you can just pick weeks and stuff it's an unfair advantage over teams who don't get that. Get the flower over it.

At the conclusion of the comp I will be starting a thread for discussion and review of this year. Would welcome comment from you all as waht worked, what did not work, what was an issue and what can be improved.  Not saying all suggestions will be implemented but need to ensure that we maintain this comp as strong as possible.

so what is the rule - the players who played last week we named got last weeks score and this weeks doesnt count for them - even if they didnt play last week ?

thats what i thought it was, but if thats not right please let me know .

we will see what i need, my fear is roughead becomes a FWD only and the only ruckman i will own is majak daw.

to get a gun ruckman i might need to pay for one (zorko).

i have over 10 players in their 1st or 2nd season all top 10 draft picks so think i am ok for the future, it is the now i am worried about.

have been lucky very lucky to go so well this season, still don't think my team will stack up against the best come finals time, but we will see.

Zorko being a ball winning contested player is PERFECT for this competition, but Voss is just wasting him. and with the Lions midfield depth i can't see him getting much time in there any time soon.

maybe he replaces black and he and moloney can be the inside mids.

but i think moloney and redden more like it, might have to consult my resident Lions expert RinGo

My opinion, With the emergence of Mayes as well I think it may be difficult for Zorko to return to a mid role.  I can see him developing as a small forward though and this may increase his scoring. Great combo Zorko and Green keeping forward pressure on.  Zorko just needs to learn to make his tackles stick and this will come.

Hundreds and thousands of Oxfordians have poured into tears after hearing the news. What he has done for the club and the comp the Queen has officially knighted Noz.

Sir Noz you will be missed in England you are welcome back anytime stated the Queen.

The players and staff of the Oxford Owls are officially on strike and refusing to play footy again and many are calling for retirement. Ashton Hams, Adam Selwood and Aaron Davey have called it quits refusing to play footy again after hearing the news, Ahmed Saad has started that only illegal substances will cure the pain the club has suffering.

The club is suffering desperately from what scientists are calling Sir Noz Withdrawls.

Have not received anything official from him and as far as i am concerned he is still coach of the Hoods until I receive something formally which I doubt given he is still posting in thread.

Hey Ringo have a question mate

I have 3 guys currently on my rookie list and want to keep them all however will prob want to use two picks in the rookie draft so question is can players drafted in the Rookie draft be put on the Senior list straight away? or will i have to promote 1 or 2 of the rookies i want to keep to the senior list in the NAT draft? to be able to use 2 picks in the rookie draft?
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Ringo on October 16, 2013, 07:39:34 AM
As the rules stand at the moment If you want to use 2 picks in the rookie draft you will either have to delist another rookie or promote one to your Senior list using a National draft pick.

This is one rule that I am looking at for next year but at the moment do not know how to improve it.  Please feel free to offer suggestions on this in the 2013 Review thread,
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: PowerBug on October 16, 2013, 07:45:42 AM
One improvement that I remember from Worlds was that when you skipped a pick in the NAT draft, it would then go to the rookie draft. By being able to do that, I'd have some more options. Currently I have Tunbridge and three vacancies. I can't upgrade tunbridge otherwise I'd be one short and I can't trade away a rookie pick and pick up someone and then pass one of my NAT draft picks to use for my rookie list.

Just to explain PB based on current rules you still have the option to upgrade Turnbridge to your senior list using a national Draft pick.  Whilst there is only 3 rounds for rookie draft there will be a supplementary round with order to be determined by administrator for a 4th pick to complete rookie lists for teams that do not have 4 rookies listed.

Trust that explains for you.

Where can you guys see Owls finishing?

We have picks #7 & #9 remember.

Because two first year players are really gonna help your ladder position.  ::)

:(

At #7 & #9 this year in the actual draft were Vlastuin and Wines.

In BXV draft: Grundy and Stringer.

They would help any teams ladder position.


(Okay sorry, no more Ringo.)

To be fair though, I'd be slightly worried if they were in your best XV.
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Vinny on October 16, 2013, 06:57:16 PM
Why? They are top picks for a reason.
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: kilbluff1985 on October 16, 2013, 07:00:30 PM
Yeah but depends who pick with them and which clubs the players are at some rookies are AFL ready but many are not I wouldn't be relying on them to be in your best XV in there first year just look at O'Rourke in my team pick 3 in AFL not done anything yet
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Vinny on October 16, 2013, 07:02:12 PM
Yeah I know mate. We aren't relying on them to be in our XV. We have other players to play. I mean 7 and 9 can effect our position on the ladder. If they kill it, we play them. Obviously we gotta pick well first though.

Post by: Justin Bieber on October 16, 2013, 07:55:01 PM
Ollie Wines was in my Asisn team for most of last season and Mayes was a starter in my British team. He was pretty much my #1 forward.

So Nigey your comments suck

Wines was considered AFL ready though before he got drafted

only 3 or 4 of last years top 20 in the AFL NAT draft had decent first years Wines, Mayes, Vlastuin and maybe Whitfield the rest you would be worried if they were in your best XV
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Vinny on October 16, 2013, 08:36:57 PM

Well Omeara, Wines, Mitchell and Mayes are quite likely to not improve, second year blues very possible. But Owls could be around the mark i guess, if things go your way.

Int: S.Martin, Z.Dawson
Emerg: D.Morris, C.Pedersen, S.Brynes

I'm probably going to cop criticism for this approach, but the way I see it, each week 22 players from 18 AFL clubs play, so with 18 BXV's clubs, we should each have 22 players. Now the team I have posted above, is what you get if you take my starting 15 out. And I think most can see, those players will be getting a game nearly every week.

So yeah, make of that what you want, it'll be interesting to see how I fare next year because of this strategy. :) One thing I want to get onto doing is seeing how many players each team used this year.

I can't create my own designs, but they have about 12 different preset guernsey styles, I can choose the one closest to what you've described, or I can do multiple ones and you can pick. Unfortunately, I don't know how to change the number, so it'll have to be the default 11. I should be able to get the sponsor on the back though. I'll chuck you a PM when I have them done.  8)

Post by: Colliwobblers on October 21, 2013, 07:43:55 PM
Do you regret it Colli?

Macrae , lonergan, ross,  I WILL

Robbie Gray not so much.

it is the opposite to the AFL, XVS is funny like that, example heath shaw is worth LESS in the AFL than taylor adams, but here we are so short sighted that any premium is viewed as worth multiple young stars.

I don't regret it, if i can draft well with my picks this season and the youth i have left kick on i will still be in good shape for the future but getting ablett has me in the window for back to back flags.

i would like 3 in a row i think :)

no regrets but it was a very one sided trade, but i knew that going into it and think based on the way XVS are Ringo made the right call on ruling on it.

think one day down the track the balance in XVS may shift to a more long term view in line with the AFL, but i guess we don't all view the XVS as long term, forever yet as AFL clubs view trades they make.
Title: Re: British 15's - Discussion thread
Post by: Vinny on October 21, 2013, 07:47:05 PM
Yeah that's a good point.

You are a good shot at the flag but its Badgers 2014 I reckon.

I reckon XV's is long term :P

Agree with the difference in perspective in XV compared to the actual AFL.

Badgers Smadgers, last one of them critters we saw got all eat up !

but yeah there will be some serious competition this season, and the draft to go and for some anotehr trade window.

i need a better fwd line, so i just traded dawes out  ::)

might regret that one too, but fingers crossed cox stays fit and rough i play fwd all sesaon.

my depth is my Achilles heel if i play the best 15 all season im in good shape, its when a few miss at once i get exposed same as last season.

i got a bit lucky last season, when i had a bad week my opponent had a worse week :)  badgers twice :)

Post by: Vinny on November 03, 2013, 06:06:14 PM
Thought I'd do one of these for the Oxford Owls.

Michael Talia (84) Sam Docherty (64) Sean Dempster (71) Troy Chaplin. (67)
Jack Steven (270), Jaeger O'Meara (110) Tom Mitchell (112) Oliver Wines (94)
Hamish McIntosh (102)
Jeff Garlett (82) Taylor Walker (100) Sharrod Wellingham (96) Sam Mayes (86)
Mitch Duncan (101) Scott Thompson (123)

=1562 :)

Pretty happy with that considering all should improve except maybe Scott Thompson. All super young too except Scott Thompson and pretty much all but 2 of Dochertys games are sub effected except like 2 where he scored 128 and 80 something. Tex Walker and Hamish Mcintosh's scores are from their 2012 SC averages, thought that was fair enough.

I'll be home by then so it should be fine.

Although, I still haven't actually decided who I'll pick yet. The AFL Draft itself on the 21st will probably influence my decision though.

Happy to be on board. Now have a finger in every XVs pie :D

As Ossie said if you're interested in doing any trades please let me know. Happy to look at offers already sent to him if you want to re-send them to me.

We think our team could be in contention next season so with that in mind are looking to pick up another gun mid or two and another good forward.

Players like Harwood, Davis, Bell, Kerridge, Seedsman, Hooker, Edwards and perhaps Warnock could be on the table for the right deal - in fact anything that helps us improve our team will be looked at.

PS - please mention it's British you're talking about when sending trade offers to avoid confusion.

Pretty in the AFL there's no underhand "We'll pass on this pick if you don't take this guy in the rookie draft" so no. But, if he's not well known chances are you'll get him.

There's even less players in the AFL rookie draft I know much about so our two picks will either be from the well-known guys or a speculative choice.

I believe you are able to change your pick though if the next guy hasn't taken their pick yet?

2nd Trade Period opens after conclusion of draft

M.Jones fell away later in the season but averaged 100 up until round 16. Thats decent for U2 and not bad considering he plays for the worst team in the comp. Under Roos he will improve.

for hat its worth matt jones is perfect for british, and should not get tagged and suffer second year blues as he is far from the flashy outside type that gets tagged after a good first season.

reckon he is good for a 100 avg with full games not huge for british but far from unserviceable for your U2.

I don't wanna brag or anything, but Liverpool's U2 is Dennis Armfield.

To be a top side, he wouldn't start for any of us.

Well fellas, our U2 is the worst that you see out of Steven, Jeager, Wellingham, Swallow, Wines, Thompson, Duncan, Shiel. Take your pick ;)

Jones is a solid player will have to earn his spot in the 22 but he is a handy player.

You'd hope not. U2 is often one of the worst positions on a persons team sheet. One of the lesser players from a rebuilding side doesn't start for you? No flowering shower dude :P
