    Agree. We need to have even numbers and I also reckon if we still want to start the PSD on the 11th, then the 15th and 16th Franchises need to be confirmed prior to Thursday, 7th Jan.

    Getting the last pick in the PSD, you could say that Maralinga 'bombed' out........


    and if we go with 14 teams, and insider has Pick 1, just like the original ORFFU PSD where he also had Pick 1, then I might suggest that there's been some 'insider trading' evident...

    Yo good people.

    Thanks to Ant for the heads up. I often forget we have a forum on TS :|

    I am happy to jump in and even up the numbers. Is there already a franchise from Drouin? Do the Drop Bears exist? Can I be the Drouin Drop Bears? </div>

    The Drouin Drop Bears.............I like it!

    Obviously everyone is keen, but my opinion/experience is it's really hard to get anything done before January. That goes for the draft, but more importantly finding coaches that are genuinely interested - I highly doubt too many are lurking around this time of year.

    I do my finest work lurking in the background!

    I don't really do 'veiled' tth, I'm more of a sledgehammer sort of guy.
    Regardless I'm happy to make up the numbers or continue to lurk. Depends on what y'all settle for as the league size and then how many that are keen.

    I favour 'movement' rather than delists. My ideal is 26 in a squad, minimum 4 movements required in the off/pre season. This can be in the form of delisting OR trading; so long as there are at least 4 differences in the end.

    good to hear mate - could you please pm me your email address if you haven't already provided it

    also when you get the chance be sure to advise your team name and/or start up a blog to make things official - nb there are still no ORFF* franchises with names starting with O,U,X,Y or Z or with nicknames starting with E,K,X,Y or Z </div>

    im open to suggestions for team names. Ill pick the most random one anyone can offer

    welcome aboard PDP, Jamabadar and Bear to make 13 confirmed

    also a 30 player list size won the poll

    once we get the draft order sorted we should open a poll to decide the list size we take into the 2017 PSD -(20 was mentioned above but we might be able to increase slightly due to the larger in-season list size) - suggestions for poll options anyone?? </div>

    Cutting a third maybe a bit harsh, I'd suggest 24, 25, 26 as max size options for PSD entry </div>
    +1 for 26 if mandatory delists/retirements/uneven trades are enforced

    actually Chop my good man I had the very last pick in the FU draft.... and subsequently won the flag in the first year. So if someone wants to trade me first for last then by all means!

    I have a suggestion for a name for the new Competition........ORFFF....... Outer Regional Football Fantasy Federation (Sports federations, each of which serves as a non-governmental governing body for a givensportand administers itssportat a world level, most often crafting rules, promoting thesportto prospective spectators and fans, developing prospective players, ...)

    Great work keeping this rolling TTH, some initial thoughts below on your topics.
    New comp name to be decided (asap)- Not fussed, I like the regional name concept used for league and teams.
    'Rules' to be discussed - Loosely based on the current leagues makes sense, enough variation in them to create discussion
    All coaches to indicate what interest they have in contributing to league organisation and admin and any periods of extended unavailability so that we can form a Commisioner/Committee set up to oversee operations through to the end of the 2016 Season - Happy to help where required, prefer to assist than manage anything
    Approximate Drafting Format and Dates to be determined- We might want two drafts, one to partially fill teams and then another prior to season start to focus on AFL draftees, though doing both as one would be interesting and add variety.
    Final Number of Teams to be determined - not fussed but even number preferred to avoid weekly byes
    Team Names and Blogs on TS - I have had a name ready for weeks :)

    Re the keeping a team or minding it, I would be keeping the one I start.
