2016 m0nty Medallist DT - 29th Overall DT 2016

What is America's AXVIII DT?

The Americas 18's (AXVIII) is based on the popular World 15s competitions developed by Ossie85 on FanFooty.

The concept was designed for Fantasy Coaches who want to experience the additional benefits of coaching a team that doesn't cease at the end of the regular season. Players drafted into an 18's team remain with that team for the life of their career until they either retire, are delisted, or are traded to another Americas XVIII club.

How does it work?

12 team competition (run by FF members)
Most current AFL players were selected in a draft
18 players (plus 4 emergencies and captains) are selected each week to compete against other teams
Scoring is based on the Real Dreamteam scoring system
At the end of each season, there will be a trading period and national/rookie drafts.
The competition runs simultaneously to the AFL season

How do players score points?

Whatever the player scores in Real Dream Team for that week, that is the score that player will get in America's AXVIII for the week.

Example: Todd Goldstein scores 119 against GWS in Real DreamTeam in Round 1, he will also score 119 in the America's AXVIII for Round 1.

How can I be part of America's AXVIII?

There are two ways you can be a part of the America's AXVIII Comp

Coach
Assistant Coach

Coach - Run the team as if it were your own,you make all the decisions regarding who to field each week,who is your captain,who to trade and who to draft.Unfortunately, the opportunity to become a coach only comes along when a coach retires or is sacked. Once it has been announced, a formal process will begin to find a new coach.

Assistant Coach - Help assist the coach in whatever way. Teams are always on the lookout for additional help, it is best to contact the coach directly to see if they require some additional help managing their team.

I have more questions...

If there is any questions about the America's AXVIII comp you would like answered, please do not hesitate to contact the admin (currently LF and Atto) via PM, or make a post in the America's AXVIII Discussion thread. We would be more than happy to help you out

6.3 Teams must be named weekly before the first game each week:
Teams will be lodged weekly in a new thread created for that round.

6.4 All teams will be locked at first bounce of the first game of the round when the round begins on a Friday. We will have individual lock-outs should the first game of the round be prior to Friday.

6.5 If a team is not lodged then the team for the previous week will become the default team.

Coaches not posting their weekly teams will be monitored and penalties will apply.

6.6 GAME POINTS PENALTY (failing to submit team without informing admin)

1st - Warning
2nd offence - VC Score doesn't count
3rd offence - Captain score doesn't count - Sacking - Team taken into admin - new coach

Teams regularly not posting their teams will be monitored and may be sacked.

6.7 All coaches will be required to submit a preference list prior to the start of new seasons. There will be a thread provided for the preference lists.These preference list will be used in cases where a coach is unable to post their team up in the weekly team submission thread.

Administrators will rule on any disputes regarding team lodgement.

7.1 Teams must be named in the following format:
Captain: Player name
Vice Captain: Player name
Deputy Vice Captain: Player name
Backs: DEF , DEF , DEF , DEF, - Four starting defenders
Mids: MID, MID, MID, MID, MID, MID, - Six starting midfielders
Ruck: RUC - One starting ruck
Forwards: FWD, FWD, FWD, FWD, - Four starting forwards
Utilities: UTI, UTI, UTI, - Three starting utilities (These can be players from any position)
Emergencies: DEF, MID, RUC, FWD, - One for each position, NO UTILITY SUB.

7.2 Captain: 2x points
Vice Captain: 1.5x points

7.3 Deputy Vice Captain: Will replace the Vice Captain should the Captain or Vice Captain not play.

7.4 If a team loses 2 of its 3 named captain options (Captain/Vice Captain/Emerg Vice Captain) they will get 0 bonus points for their Vice Captain. If a team loses all three captain options then they will get 0 bonus points for their Captain and Vice Captain.

7.5 If a Coach fails to name their C/VC/EVC correctly they will receive their C/VC/EVC selections from the previous week. An example of this would be if a coach forgot to name one of the C/VC/EVC selections or named 2 Captains/2 Vice Captains etc ..any variation of not naming these selections properly will result in the default selections being used.

7.6 Emergency Scoring
Emergencies will play should a starting member of your team not play, but with conditions.

7.7 Emergencies can only replace players in the SAME position for full points.

7.8 If neither the utilities nor the emergencies can fill the correct position,the FIRST preference emergency will fill in but only HALF the score (rounded up) will count.

7.9 Rounding up will occur anytime you have an odd number (OOP player, Vice Captain bonus points)
Example: Vice scores 103 x 1.5 = 154.5 = 155  Example: OOP player scores 63 = 31.5 = 32

7.10 If a utility is a Dual Position Player, he can be called into either position (i.e. if he is a Fwd/Mid, he can play as either a forward or mid) and the FIRST list emergency will take his place as a utility for FULL points.

7.11 If 2 starting players from the same position do not play and you do not have a utility or emergency to cover the correct position you will receive HALF of your first available playing emergency players score.

7.12 If a Utility does not play the first listed emergency will take his place.

7.13 You can choose to play a player out of position but if you do so you will only get half their score.

7.14 If a player is named more than once in your team you will receive his full points in his highest scoring position and a 0 for every other time he is named.

7.15 If too many players are named in any position the extra players will be moved to the emergency positions.

7.16 The team playing at home will have the advantage of having the score of the lowest scoring player in the correct position added to total score as home ground advantage.

7.17 When missing a Utility and a set named position if neither the utilities nor the interchange can fill the correct position then the first named interchange not required to replace a player goes to utilities at full points and then the next named playing interchange replaces missing positions for half points.

7.18 The use of the Captain loophole is not permitted in Americas Dreamteam. If a coach names an obvious non playing captain they will not receive any captain points for that week. This will be up to admin to rule on.
