As per p_l's suggestion, here's a consolidation of the rules and structure of the competition. If you have any issues or suggestion, feel free to keep posting in this thread. 1. TEAMS (a) Teams should be named after a remote Australian town/place. For consistency's sake. (b) Squads of 26 players during competition. Cut down to maximum of 20 before each pre-season draft (usually held in early March). (c) Weekly playing sides will consist of 15 players. 4 Defenders, 4 Midfielders, 1 Ruck, 4 Forwards and 2 Interchange. (d) The Interchange players can be of any position. They score points too. (e) 4 Emergencies can be selected. Emergencies must be selected in ONE line only.They come in if a selected player does not play. (f) You can play someone in the wrong position, ie. Cloke in Defence, but they only get half the points. (g) SC points and player positions. (h) If you don't field a team, you don't get no points. If you do it again, serious questions will be asked about your commitment to Sparkle Motion. 2. FIXTURE (a) Teams will play each other once in the regular season. Play will not occur in the 3 bye rounds (11,12,13). Finals will be held in the final 3 weeks of the season (21,22,23). 3. FINALS (a) Final 8, knockout style over 3 weeks (R21-23). (b) In the first week the Top 3 teams get to choose which team they play in the first week of the finals out of positions 5-8. Eg. 1st gets 1st choice, 2nd gets 2nd choice etc. (c) In the second week of the finals, the four winners from the previous play off in seeded matches, according to the ladder at the end of the regular season. Eg. 1st vs 4th, 2nd vs 3rd. (d) The third week of the finals will consist of one match between the winners of the previous weeks matches. This match is known as the ORFFL Grand Final. 4. TRADES (a) The Preseason Trade Period opens when SC player positions are announced (or when Hornsy announces it) and closes around the end of February (or when Hornsy announces it) (b) You can trade picks (to the preseason 2013 and the midseason 2013 draft) and players. Trades can be uneven (eg. 2 players for 1). (c) You can only trade draft picks in the 2 drafts directly ahead e.g. as above. (d) Trades can be vetoed if a majority of 5 non-paticipating teams cast a veto vote. (e) Teams will have roughly 48 hours to veto a trade proposed (eg. If a trade is proposed at 2.15pm on a Tuesday, ORFFL coaches have until 10pm on a thursday to cast their votes. I'll be checking/ratifying at 10pm, basically). (f) Trades posted on the last day of a trade period will only have until 7pm EDT, of the following day to have vetoes cast. (g) All proposed trades should be posted in the relevant preseason blog. Likewise, all vetoes should be posted on this thread. I'll tally up the votes and update the OP as required. (h) An additional Preseason Trade period is held from the end of the Preseason Draft until 7pm sometime in the future before the AFL season starts (check relevant blogs for exact dates and such). (i)Mid Season Trade Period will occur during Bye Weeks 1 and 2 (R11 and R12) 5. DELISTMENTS (a) Roughly 2 days before any Pre-Season Draft ORFFL lists can be no greater than 20 players. (b) To delist players, simply send Hornsy a PM detailing who you want cut. Or failing that post your delistments in the relevant thread. Basically just let us know soemhow. (c) ORFFL lists may be cut to fewer than 20 players. However, if you cut your list to less than 10 players questions will be asked about WTF you're doing with your team in this competition. (d) If an ORFFL list exceeds 20 players by the deadline mentioned above, players will be delisted from that team for them (Previous year's averages from lowest to highest) to take the list down to 20 players and the coach will be in serious risk of losing their place in the ORFFL (I would vote for them to be kicked out - because I'm an arsehole. Others will be more forgiving). 6. DRAFT (a) The Pre-Season Draft will commence whenever someone says it will commence. Seriously it changes every year, but it's usually some time in March. (b) 12 hour time limit on picks. If you don't pick within time you will be given the highest ranked player on the previous year's averages. (c) Teams must continue to draft until their lists are at 26 players. (d) Teams must stop drafting when their lists are at 26 players. (e) You cannot draft Martin or Hogan yet. No baggsies. (THIS RULE IS NO LONGER RELEVANT) (f) Mid Season Draft will happen in the last Bye Week (R13). Draft will run in reverse ladder order as of the end of R10. (g) Mid Season Draft is not compulsory to participate in. (h) There is no salary cap. SC dollars do not exist in this universe. If I've missed something, let me know. Same if you want something added.
