    Not entirely comfortable:
    1. Mad Monday should be a club affair not a league affair, in my opinion. The runners up in the Chelsea lookalike comp have plans for most of the Waikik team in place already. Sorry Josh you just did not cut it mate; nothing worse than a soft Carlton defender.
    2. The appearance of skanky tarts on ORFFA official pages should stop forthwith. Melon vendors' assistants are fine but tired ex strippers are not.

    Well done otherwise TiB, a firm hand on the tiller with experience of the real world is appreciated.

    You can relax chels. Monday remains a club affair. It just had to be included in the calendar so that all would know we will not get any sense out of the chook on that date and to remind said chook that it is his shout.

    I personally feel that skanky tarts of the ex stripper kind cop enough bad press that placing them here amongst all this wholesome discussion has to be seen as community service..

    And, I am good with the rest of the plan also :)

    I've already started Mad Monday. Some players are already drunk. I mean, Tucky only got 150 this week, Selwood was a no show. Broughton left a flaming bag of poop on Ross Lyin's doorstep. We're just lucky no team showed up to play us this week.

    So the boys have already embarked on their end of season trip to Inghams in sunny QLD.

    Just to keep everyone up to date, I am gradually reading through all our major threads, noting down things that need to be done or issues to be cleared up. It is time consuming. Following that I will have a deeper look at the ORFFL rules and then (particularly for Born to Trade Fitzy) will add trade/draft periods to the calendar.

    Me again, sorry about that...

    Are we agreed that the teams belong to the league, not the individual owner, ie a licence issue system.
    We have two types of absence to cover for, temporary, & permanent
    Permanent:
    I planned to raise this initially as it seems we may complete this season with an abandoned team or two, and due to life, this could happen in any season.
    Should that happen, for the good of the league, we need a way of revitalising that/those teams, probably by appointing a new manager. (I assume this is possible with Walesy's help re passwords etc?)
    We need to have a stipulated time frame for this, preferably by decree.
    Temporary:
    Clearly someone who can't get online for a few weeks for good reason should be protected, not disadvantaged, but the rest of the managers shouldn't be penalised either.
    Getting a legup by playing against 0 point teams is not desirable, esp if your nearest competitor was beaten by them the week before.
    There is a case to be made for a team being auto fielded for a certain # of weeks.
    Additionally;
    Leadership, if it isn’t front and square it isn’t leading.
    We need a genuine in place backup system so that the league flourishes, not dies through lack of direction.
    Regardless of why Xeno hasn’t been around lately I am calling for a leadership spill, Keating style, per Terry’s post nominations open on the 3rd close on the 7th, and we vote, following that vote the sanctioned commissioner nominated and empowers a 2IC.

    I have got more enjoyment and involvement from this league than I have from SC by a multiplying factor, by hook or by crook I intend to see that continue..

    Like the absence rules, just need a defined period for temporary

    Has someone actually tried to reach out to X via email etc? I think the guy should be given a chance to front before we knife him. If he has not shown by seasons end then yes, we need to do something about it... but I think we should at least drop the guy a message or 10 before the 3rd.

    Pretty sure Terry has tried a few times Bandit, correct me if I am wrong. But total lack of even checking in is a bit of a worry. He was away a bit with work but I would think at least a heads up 'gonna be MIA for 4 weeks' would have been nice.

    Agree with dirty leather clad strippers having a place in ORFFA and especially anywhere around the Iron Knob.

    Agree with voting for a leadership group, new commish, 2ic, whatever is in the best interests of the league.

    The teams going MIA is a bit of a concern. Each manager who has been fielding zeros should get a polite email from newly elected leadership group asking WTF (in a nice way) and do they have interest in continuing, and not just in 2013 but in the offseason when its vital that teams are cared for as far as delistments, trades etc

    Not sure if this is the right thread for this but I wanted to bring something up with the other club presidents.

    We all agree it isn't good when coaches don't submit a team and stuff a round up. A bigger problem here I feel is the end of season draft and the order. If a team hasn't been submitted 3 or 4 times they slide down the ladder therefore getting a better draft pick while us guys that have been submitting a team ever week are getting disadvantaged.

    I think personally next year is the real first year of the competition when we have finals etc, this year was thrown together pretty quickly to make a start of it and with the draft order being affected by non team entries I feel this affects the integrity of it.

    Not sure how we can fix it, maybe going through every round and for each non entry you get penalised 1 draft spot.

    Just a though and would like to discuss.

    This was supposed to be a calendar. Oh well.

    I like it that there is at least half a dozen coaches who are fired up (club presidents!!! you wear a tie bama?). This is something to build on to make the league strong. We started out under a divisional cloud and opted for our own league, 99.99&#37; full of enthusiasm. That OTHER league will now be watching. Not in any "I told you so way", well, maybe a few, but in a concerned way. I am reasonably sure most would like to see 10 such STRONG leagues battling it out under a future TS.

    Our major weakness is that we knobbled this thing together without any thought to reserve coaches or a waiting list of hopeful franchises. When you have a bird in hand you can play Fidel to anyone not putting in. This is something we need to fix and, the preferred method would be mates of mates etc., already on TS.

    In the meantime, if you are with me, I would be happy that we nurse a couple of franchises through next year, until we can find good owners for them. That means a couple of coaches would run two teams on a temporary basis. Not desirable I admit, but I don't want us to be in a situation where we have no clear idea if someone is coming or going and I don't want us handicapped by having to go cap in hand to ask people to put a team in.

    So, yeah, bama and I are thinking very much alike on the penalty front. Anyone else?

    I think the first point of call is to contact all the coaches and find out who is committed for next year. Then we can work out whether or not we need to find new coaches or double up on teams.

    TiB, no I don't wear a tie but I thought this was serious business and a little over the head of the coaches!

    I am comfortable with the idea of some "penalty" for non-entry as the time needed to log on and insert is so tiny. As a fail safe I would like to investigate whether an automatic carry over of last round's team rather than a blank screen is possible. Especially as if you amend during the week the last entered team appears, not the blank.

    I fear that if asked everyone might commit but then, as we have perhaps seen, talk is cheap. If a team becomes even weaker it becomes less attractive. I wondered out loud on the weekly thread whether (a) we should look at home and away and not have finals; and (b) whether 18 teams is in fact the optimum number right now. Thoughts please.

    IMO more strict modding so that a thread simply covers one topic would also help.

    Am with you TiB, I reckon the ORRFL guys have an interest in making sure ORFFA succeeds. Perhaps the banter with Hornsy could be left to the H v TiB thread and we focus on business here, while accepting and reflecting on input irrespective of where it comes from.

    I think we need finals, if we have 17 teams then we do not need to play through the bye rounds next year, which would be ideal I think personally? But then we need to kick a team off. Worth seeing if there is anyone else on TS that is intrested in taking over a team.

    Just thinking out loud here
