    @Len not looking for a job in politics or diplomacy any time soon? I like it!

    I had a chat with @walesy and zeros is by far the easiest for him as its zero action on his part. He did say that if the majority really want averages then he'll be happy enough to make it work (not quite verbatim).

    Lets see what some of the other ORFF*'s are doing, but it might just be best to cut the big man some slack and follow Len's advice in investing in a straw.

    I did vote for YTD averages but happy to change my preference and go with zeros. No idea how it affects my team. I'm sure that by being on the pull ups now it makes me a big enough boy to be able handle it.

    You must've stolen some of my personal photos! That's me when I first started on the pull ups 35 years ago

    @JPK So I gather we need to finish the draft before bounce down tonight?

    You would think we would have to but FU are just too slow, FFF got through 45 picks by early last night starting at the same time.

    I would also think that if we can't complete the Draft before bounce down, then none of the players taken so far will be eligible for RD8 teams.

    Yeah, I was kinda hoping that we would be able to get things complete quickly enough. Turns out thats not likely to happen.

    So either:
    • Coaches are able to select players that they currently have on their list, up to lockout, regardless of how far we are through the draft - which means that some teams will only have 26 or 27 players to choose from.
    • Coaches can only select players that were on their list pre-draft - so teams like Eden (@HOLKY) will be rather limited.
    What's the general consensus, please?


    Also.... we might need some form of rolling lockout. When a round is completed in three days (Fri-Sat-Sun normally) then there is no issue, but with the Thursday games we've always had a partial lockout, and with Monday games its just been a suck-it-and-see approach.
    But right now we have the situation of:
    Round 8 - 5 days - Thurs-Mon
    Round 9 - 5 days - Wed-Sun
    Round 10 - 5 days - Mon-Fri
    Round 11 - 5 days - Sat-Wed
    Round 12 - 5 days - Thurs-Mon
    What's everyones thoughts on this, please?

    Can everyone update their teams as well so the free agents is correct.

    I'm done for the MSD so if anyone wants to send their shortlist for their next pick(s) feel free to PM me. I'll have TS open in the background while I get through some mind numbing data testing today and would welcome the distraction.

    @JPK So when do we call auto pick? or do we skip him and let him pick when he is online again?
