    Ok, i'm going to leave this upcoming trade period timeline as is for the time being.
    Our current rules state that we have 5 defined trade periods which include a post season and a pre-PSD.
    The exact duration of these trade periods is not detailed in the rules, however the post season and pre-PSD trade periods are ones with most scope for timing flexibility.
    I will organise a discussion thread / poll over the weekend to gauge some views on the timing of these trade periods.

    I'm not fussed over timing of trade periods, although I do agree that it's pointless having trading open during the actual AFL trade/FA/Draft period because of the constant list changes.
    That said, I assume we kick off our 1st trade period now??? Or is it already open??? Been a bit sidetracked past month with @MrsBear having the long awaited neurosurgical procedure last week and having to get ourselves organised for that (including having one surgery date cancelled).
    If anyone is looking to propose a trade to either myself or @MrsBear, it might pay to send me an sms after making the proposal to alert me that a proposal has been made, that way I can let the boss know if it is a proposal for her, and if it's for me then I can get on and check it out. Just making the suggestion because we have 3 trips to Adelaide in September alone for follow up appointments for the boss.
    If you haven't got my mobile number and think you might need it just in case then shoot through a message here before next Thursday :)

    It is almost time for 2020 ORFFF board nominations.

    If we work off 2019 as a guide then the ORFFF PSD should be commencing approx. Tuesday 25th February, hopefully the current commish or board can provide some key dates shortly (including MSD).

    What are we proposing with regards to a MSD this season? Do we bring this forward to be a pre start to round 2 draft and trade period in the absence of byes now and a condensed season?

    Some assumptions I have made about the coming AFL season (part 2) with a scheduled re-start (Round 2) of June 11, with the first 4-6 weeks of fixtures to be advised by Monday May 25 and hopefully much greater detail on things like whether teams will field teams of 24 players for the remainder of the 2020 season.

    Round 9 – Thursday July 30, Friday July 31, Saturday August 1, Sunday August 2
    Round 10 – Thursday August 6, Friday August 7, Saturday August 8, Sunday August 9
    Round 11 – Thursday August 13, Friday August 14, Saturday August 15, Sunday August 16

    If there are no byes mid-season or pre-finals, and no midweek games to bring forward the end of the regular season then the final Round (17) would be Thursday September 24 to Sunday September 27 and would allow 4 weeks of finals in October which is in line with the AFL have been reported as confirming as their target.

    The MSD is usually a fairly short draft and with advanced notice I would hope we could hold a 2 round midseason draft on a Monday Night from 8pm-11pm East Coast time with a 10/15 minute time limit per pick. Coaches are free to nominate proxies if they cannot attend.

    Picks 33 onwards then get taken post this scheduled time to complete the draft by lunchtime (1pm) on the Thursday (if there is a Thursday night game for the round following) or Friday.

    In my opinion the midseason trade period can be longer than a week and should open prior to the draft. If there is no trading post MSD due to the unusual season format then so be it.

    I would support timing the 2020 ORFFF midseason trade/draft period around the period Sunday July 26 (upon the completion of Round 8) to Wednesday August 5 – with the draft starting on Monday August 3 (post Round 9).

    If the finals are played over 3 weeks rather than the usual 4 (definitely not my preference) then I would be fine with pushing this back a week to Sunday August 2 (completion of Round 9) to Wednesday August 12 – with the draft starting on Monday August 10 (post Round 10).

    t this stage I would be strongly against holding a midseason draft prior to the proposed AFL re-start.

    As detailed above a June 11 re-start is apparently being targeted, with further fixture details likely to be released in the coming 10 days (ie Monday 25th May).

    If the ORFFF committee can make a decision one way or the other in the next 1-2 weeks then holding a short trade in early June might work OK for ORFFF coaches who are keen and able to participate.

    Personally I am in favour of NOT holding a June pre-restart trading period myself but I can see that if one isn't held then it could be a very long wait until the MSD.

    Honestly, I am not fussed really, just hanging for some footy and fantasy footy! I think it will be prudent to hold off until we have more information as you say. If we end up with extended lists and rapid-fire games it's going to making things far more complex!

    I’d be for a June window for the 11 days before the season recommences, for those that want to participate.

    Fuck the AFL. Kinda annoyed at all these rich sports administrations crying poor and doing whatever they can to rush their product restarting as soon as possible. Great idea to waste tests on sportsballers when we'll need as many as we can get when we get serious waves of the virus hit the country (or if we have so much surplus, send elsewhere in the world, it's a global pandemic after all).

    Soapbox aside, do we even necessarily need a mid-season draft? We're only going to know fixtures four weeks in advance, it's highly unlikely to be a bye period which was why the MSD was originally created when the ORFs started. I think if we had to sacrifice some of our own H&A games to hold a MSD that would be wrong. We need to have as many rounds as we can get and then some sort of finals comp, which is pretty flexible when you think about it, can be anything from just one game at end of season to the setup we have now.

    Personally I'd also not want to have any pre-restart trade period, just simply because we'd get people coming back to TS/footy in drips and drabs.

    As for what to do with multiple games in a week, maybe have flexibility with starting positions, or extra emergencies on the bench to try and help us all get 15 scoring players. That or just do away with team selections and auto-total the best XV scores (by position/or just all) each week.

    Ultimately up to our ringleaders (and whatever work is involved on the backend by Walesy)
