We are now scheduled to kickoff from 7pm on Wednesday 22nd January, @Len will be running/coordinating the draft itself, but here is the main stuff before we get started. Please ensure you have alerts turned on for this thread with email notification, not only will you be able to see when it's your pick but you will also get a live record of which of your prospects have been "stolen" from you. Note - draft banter and discussion is in another thread http://tooserious.net/forum/threads/2020-orffw-keeper-draft-discussion-and-banter.90590/ Player positions for new AFLW players are locked in for the duration of the draft as per the attached spreadsheet except that Note - 3 position changes have been determined, with Selina Priest (Goodman), Sharni Layton and Eden Zanker all gaining Ruck DPP eligibility as we noted the career average hitout stats listed on https://www.playonradio.live/aflw-your-clubs-leaders-by-the-numbers. Priest and Layton are now D/R and Zanker is F/R. Undrafted players (in both keeper and draft) will be reassessed when the 2020 AFLW prospectus is delivered. Relevant Draft Rules (per the draft rules thread) http://tooserious.net/forum/threads/orffw-keeper-league-rules-up-for-discussion.90588/ 21 players per team will be selected per banzai draft order – draft to be completed by no later than Tuesday 4th February 2020. A maximum of 3 Ruck eligible players (including R/F) can be drafted per list. INACTIVE players who are confirmed to be out for the entire 2020 AFLW season as at the commencement of the ORFFW Keeper Draft are ineligible to be selected in the Preseason Draft as at 19th January the 12 inactive 2020 ORFFW players are - Hannah Martin, Chelsea Randall, Maisie Nankivell, Ruth Wallace, Alicia Janz , Bianca Jakobsson, Katherine Smith, Shae Sloane, Jess Duffin, Aisling Utri, Ann McMahon and Rosie Deegan players added to the 2020 ORFFW inactive list prior to the draft commencing are/were (nil) Aine Tighe (Frementle) was added to the INACTIVE list during the draft as she ruled out for 2020 with an ACL around a week after injuring herself in the preseason practice match against Adelaide. Please keep the draft moving but please be mindful that we all have real life, study, jobs etc Once the draft is underway we will be advising some guidance to all participants about the timeframe for taking picks. Ideally all picks will be taken within 3 hours of the previous pick (and 6 hours at the most) and this can be stretched for picks taken overnight but we have around 13 days to take 252 picks so need to be averaging about 18 picks a day (counting back to back picks as a single pick). It would be worth having a rough top 50 jotted down before Wednesday night to get the first few rounds off and running. Keeper League Banzai Draft Order The following applies for Rounds 1, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 (reversed in Rounds 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21) 1 - @HOLKY - Morwell Eagles 2 - @anthak - Pomona Nymphs - @ant_hak on twitter 3 - @TheTassieHawk (TTH) - Manildra Mystix - @MOrffw on twitter 4 - @Nic Neg - Batemans Bay Battlers - @NicNegrepontis on twitter 5 - @dmandrews - Lake St Clair Devils 6 - @Tracey - Scone Sirens 7 - @marconofrio - Bermagui Bronze - also @marconofrio on twitter 8 - @That KI Guy - Vivonne Bay Valkeries - @lostlarrikin on twitter 9 - @ver_redit_optatum (Ver.R.O.) - Glenbrook Galahs - @JosephineRoper4 on twitter 10 - @FreoDockers - Katanning Krushers 11 - @Tiny_doughnut - Sandgate Sugar Gliders - also @Tiny_doughnut on twitter 12 - @Len - Bathurst Belles Communication Pre-Draft or early one please use Too Serious Personal Messages http://tooserious.net/forum/conversations/ to exchange phone, email and/or twitter details for the people picking immediately before and after your pick (except if you have pick 1 or 12 in the first round then it is just the person before or after you in the first round) as each round will alternate per the above these 2 teams will be your buddies throughout the draft. That will be critical to let people know when there pick is coming up. 70 hours until we kick off the draft (at the time of this post) Thanks to everyone for joining. If it is anything like our 2019 draft league we should have a ball during the draft and throughout the season so use the 70 hours until 7pm Wednesday 22nd to get excited, and get prepared if you are wired that way !!
