    Are the majority of ORFFL owners feeling neglected and need their "fix" over the coming weekend but don't know what to do but look despondently at the lucky few gallivanting about with pseudo mind-games and tedious serious-talk about figures no one really gives a damn about? :eek:

    Well never fear I've created something that will hopefully tie us over during the coming three weeks and will at least be a side-show to the main event of ORFFL finals.

    It is basically a State of Origin battle, best of 3 games, between players from the remaining 10 teams split into Vic (including their Bass Strait brethren ;)) vs Allies aka The Rest of the bunch. Works out as a perfect 5v5 split so we have even teams to get players from. The name? It's because that's all we're playing for, what, you think we win some sort of trophy, this is a regional comp remember ;)

    So the details:

    40 players will form the squads over the 3 weeks, to be pooled from every ORFFL team in that side.
    Will consist of 12 defenders, midfielders, forwards and 4 ruckmen.
    22 players in a match day squad ala normal AFL teams.
    That means 6 defenders, 5 midfielders, 1 ruckman, 6 forwards and 4 interchange (any pos). 3 emergencies can be listed.
    MPP will be listed as Forward or Defender, to maximise team's squad and can not be used between their positions given on SC.

    How to Play:
    What I've envisioned is that in this thread or in a separate one, the owners of their players in each Origin team each decide on a team selection for the coming week, most likely by giving their preferred line-up and the most popular choices making into the final team to be submitted before the footy starts on Friday by the "captain" (anyone willing to represent their side.
    The captain's roles is also to decide on tie-breakers that may occur and has final say on the squad.
    I am happy to take the reins of the Allies unless someone wants to do it but will definitely need at least 1 person from the other side to decide on teams to make this somewhat of an inclusive competition :D
    Obviously the more people having a say on a squad the more it will represent their "side" but it isn't mandatory for everyone to participate, whoever wants to join.

    Teams:
    For the sake of speeding it along, I've chosen the 40 players from each side and barring something catastrophic happening to one of them today it will be final, I've looked over all reports (one of the reasons its take awhile to do it) and made sure that those selected at least have a chance to play and figure. With a squad of 40 though I doubt there will be any trouble fielding a squad.
    Players were decided purely on SC average, to avoid any bias in selection.
    Down the bottom of the lists per position players may have been shuffled slightly to "level" the contribution of each side so its not weighted towards any particular ORFFL side This mas have worked for the Vic side but as you will see after taking injuries etc, it didn't work at all in the Allies team :D
    Totaling the 40 players average they are actually quite close, only ~60 points advantage to the Vic and that's over 40 players so pretty good I think. They have 8 players under injury clouds though compared to the 6 for the Allies so there's some levelling there too.

    Squads:

    Victorians - The Queenstown Quolls, Tarwin Lower Pigs, Bonnie Doon Bandits,Glenrowan Gunslingers, Torrumbarry Thunda

    Allies - Popanyinning Pyrite, Jimcumbilly Jackrabbits, Purnululu Bungle Rangers, Woy Woy Wizards, Humpty Doo Hammerheads

    Ok so there we have it. I'm sure I've missed something out so questions and queries are welcome. When teams are out later tonight I'll do a selection for the Allies. Hopefully we can get a few people interested and playing. If its just me, well then I'll play by myself and post the results up anyway. :D

    Love this idea. Go the ALLIES!

    Dunno if the Vics are stronger on paper. Missing some top tier talent including Swan and N Riewoldt. I reckon it will come down to key selections.

    My 2c for the allies starting 22:

    Def: Shaw, Adcock, Fisher, Duffield, Guerra, Mackie

    Mid: J Selwood, Boyd, Judd, Hayes, A Swallow

    Ruck: Jacobs

    Fwds: Walker, Petrie, J Riewoldt, Blair, Pearce, Power (gotta play him in his 300th!!!)

    Int: Shuey, Ryder, Del Santo, Betts/Garlett

    Emg: Betts/Garlett (Fwd), Lake (Def), Black (Mid)

    Vics as heavily back favourites, now there's a surprise! :D

    My team for the Allies:
    B: Brent Guerra Brian Lake Paul Duffield
    HB: Heath Shaw Dustin Fletcher Jed Adcock
    C: Chris Judd Matthew Boyd Nick Dal Santo
    HF: Paul Chapman Jack Riewoldt Drew Petrie
    F: Jarryd Blair Taylor Walker Clancee Pearce
    Foll: Sam Jacobs Joel Selwood Andrew Swallow

    If no one else wants to join in, particularly someone from the opposing side, I'll just make the team myself. Can't guarantee a Jobe n Scott show though ;) :D

    Ah yeah, Griffen. That Ruck selection was a bit complicated, despite Mummy's shit average, well he's Mummy right? So had to be in. Griffen was in but it was a line-ball between himself and Giles and whilst debating it I discovered Sandilands was due to return soon. So that would have a negative impact on his scoring, favouring Giles. Another plus is Giles gets to represent GWS, think they only have 3 guys. So it was tough, decisions had to be made, bottom line though, yes, The Grif can be disappointed about non-selection. :D

    Cheers, Commie n Chief. :D

    For the snub, Johno Griffen is going to make the Vic's pay

    Need to stick up for one of my own but would much prefer to see Sam Fisher on the starting backline rather than old man Dustin Fletcher.

    Ok so tentatively-finalised Allies team. Fisher in for Fletcher with a bunch of different emergencies. Unfortunately there's no room for sentimentality here, Mr. Power, this is battle.

    B: Brent Guerra, Brian Lake, Paul Duffield
    HB: Heath Shaw, Sam Fisher, Jed Adcock
    C: Chris Judd, Matthew Boyd, Lenny Hayes
    HF: Paul Chapman, Jack Riewoldt, Drew Petrie
    F: Jarryd Blair, Taylor Walker, Clancee Pearce
    Foll: Sam Jacobs, Joel Selwood, Andrew Swallow
    Int: Patrick Ryder, Darren Jolly, Nick Dal Santo, Luke Shuey
    Emg: Eddie Betts (Fwd), Andrew Mackie (Def), Simon Black (Mid)

    Oh yeah Fez, if Griffen is feeling lonely in the stands he should give his old team-mate Hudson a call too. ;)
