Remember voting closes midnight Sunday. Also remember not voting is a strike against your team,

Teams still to vote: Grope Lane Giants (Rids), Huddersfield Hawks (JBs-Hawks), Leeds Leeches (Hawka), Manchester Magic (Torpedo 10), Winchester Werewolves (Rusty00).

Please vote ASAP as all votes at the moment do not have a clear majority,

Thinking of this rule change for next season and comments welcome.

Spend a fair amount of time checking teams to UF and at times miss some due to changes.

Proposing for next year that teams be lodged in UF prior to bounce at first game and that sets your team for the round.
Advise the following in the match round thread so as to make the necessary adjustments at conclusion of round.
1) Any OOP positions you are using.
2) Emergency order if not keeping with Def, Mid, Ruck and Forward.
3) In cases of Partial lock out - Any changes after the 1st lockout.

Rather not take basically the forum element away.

If we're using UF first and then the forum, it takes away basically the only activity here.

And personally, it's easier to get on here and name a team than it is on UF, but maybe that's because I've got teams in other comps and have a process where I just name all my teams here one after the other.

The rule being proposed is iirc what we had like two seasons ago and then we changed it last year to what we're doing at the moment, could be wrong on that though.

Anyway, point being that the focus on UF should be for the scores, not the naming of teams.

I also think that it is important that the XV comps stay on here. UF is an awesome little tool to make life easier for people when it comes to tracking the games in progress and working out final scores etc. But at the end of the day, it is only used during the season proper. All drafting and trading etc occurs here and should stay that way.

People should always be logging in anyways to make sure the team they post here is correct to the team that has been updated/amended on UF for any mistakes etc imo.

OK so how about a slight amendment and feel this may be a little better.

Teams to be lodged in thread and encouraged to update in UF. Existing rules applying to Partial lockouts.

Failure to name a team you will be given the team currently in UF rather than last named team in threads.

Posting this here so I do not forget as rule will not apply until next year,

Each year one of my major griefs of this competition is ruling on trades and each year there are objections etc which are part and parcel of the comp.

Previously we have had an independent trade committee to review trades that Admin had ruled on and over rule if necessary.  Problem with this was that the committee were outside British and seen to be not over our competition.

This year we changed rules to have Admin rule and if 5 coaches objected to the rule would be sent for vote. Whilst we are still in the trade period there appears to be some problems with this as well when a trade is rejected.

So been thinking about how to tinker with this to take some of the heat of admin and here is my suggestion for next year.
Monday weekly confirmed trades for the previous week are posted in the OP.
Coaches have till Friday to PM Admin any objections to trades posted.
If less than 4 coaches object trade automatically passed.
If 4 coaches or more object trade is put to vote of all coaches with outcome deciding fate.

Please feel free to offer any other suggestions.

I think that it should never go to a coaches vote ever. Coaches will always vote with bias to their own team.

At the end of the day, the admin need to trust the coaches enough to allow a trade to pass if the extra reasoning that was requested is fair and reasonable. A trade should never be negged over a few spots in a draft or the addition/removal of a late pick. Trades do not need to be even and hindsight says they never are.

Was not officially voted on but consensus was to increase list to 47 in line with AFL Lists.
Can do a vote if you wish though.
Agreement was 4 Rounds of National Draft and use Supplementary Rounds after the 3 Rookie Rounds to bring lists to 47.

Had a coach ask if it was official yet, hence the question. Couldn't find the discussion.
