I think this is a solid plan, let's just roll with it
No reason we can't trade from Friday the 24th after start of Friday's game as teams are locked.
Could run that to the end of Monday's game and then start the draft 8am Tuesday.
Would need to keep pick time limits to 1 or 2 hours max, might be fairer to skip than autopick with that tight a window.
Holding out till later is an option, but realiy we have a lack of knowledge on what later looks like..
It also seems prudent to move now that the niggling injuries are beginning as well! I know it's a big thing to throw up last minute but would we contemplate expanding squads for the remainder of the season if we are getting teams regularly coming of 4-5 day breaks in future rounds?
I would prefer to keep squads of 30. Other TS comps have 26 and 28 so there is plenty of scope to cover with 30.
Teams can Trade out injured or fringe players at midseason if they wish to try to get 28-30 fit players for the back end of the season and then have a benefit while other teams struggle to field a decent team.
If a majority of finalists agree then maybe a mini draft of 1 to 2 players in the week after the home and away and before finals with mini draft players getting 8 week contracts then being automatically delisted once the Grand Final is played. Could be done as a live draft in a 2 hour window to get it over and done with.
Sounds like we are getting compression from round 9 so need to make a call here.
Have reached out to board with above comments in mind. Will advise of decision soon.
Ok, our hand is effectively forced.
Only a one day break between rounds 8 & 9. Then 33 matches over 19 days!
The FFF MSD trade period will commence tomorrow 16/7/20 at 9am AEST and conclude 20/7/20 at 9pm AEST.
Traded players are not to change hands until the conclusion of round 7.
The FFF Mid season Draft will commence 21/7/20 at 8am AEST and conclude by 5pm AEST on 23/7/20.
Fasten your seatbelts kids!
Sounds good, will give Maralinga Atoms a text. good luck trading!

As per the above suggestion a few months back are we all able to free up 3 hours on Tuesday night July 21st from 8pm East coast time - or arrange proxies to plow through the bulk of the ORFFF MSD draft ???
We could do via VC and share a virtual beer/OJ if we really want to get in the COVID-19 spirit.
And on delists...
Participation in the MSD is optional, if you want to play then delist by 10pm on 20/7/20.
9am 7/6/21 - 9pm 12/6/21 - MSD trade period
10pm 12/6/21 - MSD delist deadline
9am 14/6/21 - Mid season draft
we probably should be looking to lock in some dates for the 2022 pre-season by early January
trade period 1 opens once supercoach officially opens (usually late Jan)
trade period 1 ends 10pm Friday 18 February
PSD delists due 10pm Sunday 20 February
PSD commences 10am Thursday 24 February
when PSD is completed trade period 2 re-opens
trade period 2 runs until 10pm Saturday 12 March
ORFFF Round 1 commences Wednesday 16 March (Melb vs WB)
feel free to suggest some alternatives
All looks good with similar timings to last year.
Hi folks, I’ve just updated the OP with these dates, based on previous discussions.
Feel free to change if needed @Dale Duivesteyn & @That KI Guy et al
Sorry, I noticed an error. I’ve just updated these two dates.
the rules state there needs to be 3 clear days between the end of a trade period and the start of a draft.
I just arbitrarily adjusted the delist deadline to a date during this 3-day period. The board should probably decide what date is most appropriate for the delist deadline
I wouldn’t mind some discussion and/or the board deciding the dates, what was suggested in DECEMBER was trades closing 18th Feb and PSD starting 24th Feb, no one countered and now we are locking in trades closing 25th Feb and the PSD stating 1st March (ie 15 days before the first match).
Due to COVID I strongly prefer an earlier draft, so there is more time for coaches and the board to prepare for the million and 1 last minute COVID related SC and ORFFF tweaks and changes.
@daleduivesteyn @James84 @Len @Darran can you please all take a look and let us know your preference for ALL preseason dates sometime early this week
I just went with the dates that @That KI Guy posted in the trade thread, when he was the boss at the time
My Opinion is if we can get everyone back on ship in time we should bring everything forward, (I personally have an itch to get into Orfff and want there to be activity ASAP)
Benefits to an earlier draft is exactly as @TheTassieHawk identifies, with a few board changes, this could work in ironing out a few things before all hell breaks loose round 1.
Plus, it gives people more time for their other supercoach/fantasy "commitments" lol. I haven't got much more to say on the topic though.
I'm in favour of moving things up
Is it still 10pm 26 Feb 2022 to get your PSD delists done?
The 2022 post Easter trade period dates have been added to the OP
Hey do we know when the MSD will be?
