I might have missed the whole reasoning, but why is the National draft for BXV starting so late on the 9th Dec?

I'll be away until the 6th with no internet, and Ringo decided to wait until I'm back to start the draft to make sure that everything goes smoothly from an admin perspective. Will look to start the draft on the 8th though, after delistings are processed.

We also don't think time should be an issue, finished both drafts within 3 days last year iirc

That is frustrating. I will have next to no access then. Luckily Grope Lane only has 3 picks in the national draft so we won't hold the draft up too much but there is every chance we will be using the 24 hours each time.

If the rookie draft starts too close to Christmas then that will cause further issues with me. I will be on holidays for approx 10 days with no internet acces.

I'm just checking with Ringo, may be able to start on the 5th or 6th (and I'd pick when I get back). We were going to start after the AFL PSD and Rookie drafts regardless, so would only be delayed by ~6 days if that is the case.

When exactly will you be away?

I can't confirm the exact days as it will be Christmas shut down for my new client. There will be next to no internet access in the new role through the day. Nostra is also working multiple jobs currently with no home internet hence why I have been carrying the workload. It is what it is I spose.

Ah ok. Well, it looks like we may be doing the 5th now, if that helps at all :P

It can't be helped.

Anything to move the deadline further away from Christmas will be a great idea imo. The last thing I want to be doing is trying to find internet cafes to log on to fanfooty  :)

Ringo and I have decided to change the final date for delistings to Friday December 1st. Some leniency may be given, as it is slightly earlier than originally stated.

The NAT draft will now begin on Tuesday December 5th, once everything is hopefully all sorted out by Ringo (delistings, list spots, etc).

Will send everyone a PM as well.

As the season nears and I have draft draw prepared so just to discuss a couple of rule changes to counter draw.

Existing Rule for Round Starting on Thursday - (5 this year)
When we have Thursday Night game - Captain and VC locked and players in game locked at Bounce Thursday with balance of team locked at Bounce Friday Night game.

Although not a rule think we applied this for teams with Monday night Games (Only Rd 2 applies)
C and VC Locked and Players in teams to Sunday locked at Bounce of Friday night game.

Rd 5 is the Round we have to make a decision on with games on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday and Wednesday.
Options as I see them
1. Have a full rolling lockout for the Round with C and VC locked at Bounce of Friday Game.
2. Captains and VC's and players up to Sunday locked at Bounce of Friday night game with Melbourne, Richmond, Collingwood and Essendon players locked on the morning following announcements of teams for their matches. Not sure when that will be but possibly Monday. (Maybe 2 lockouts if teams not announced on same day)
So discussion welcome.

Will send out votes for any rules that involve changes for this season in the next week or two.
The 2 I have currently listed are trades committee do we continue or alternative and do we follow UF with change of position or lock at start of season.
Feel free to discuss these as well.

Priority picks, and trading future picks were others that were brought up iirc

Would also bring up trade movements as well I guess. Keep the same, make unlimited, increase to something like 20 (with other restrictions currently in place remaining the same), or decreasing the number (which I doubt anyone would go for :P).

Yep, these are rules that need to be voted on before people know what picks and stuff they're expecting to get

Fair comments then guys so will vote on all 4 that I have in the Rule changes thread.

Your thoughts on the Anzac day Round would be appreciated though.
