TOPIC: 2020: DuFFLe Draft Night

Mercury 2020: DuFFLe Draft Night 1 week 4 days ago #1

Mercury
I'm thinking sometime between 28 February and 15 March. The 15 March (Sunday) is really close to Round 1 commencing on the following Thursday. Perhaps the week/weekend before?

Midweek anytime between now and the start of the season is fine for me but I can't do either the Labour Day weekend or the following weekend. Next weekend would be ok.

I agree with Mercs - a week or two before the season begins. If we hold it too soon you can't really get a good idea of how the players have gone over the preseason - the closer to the Home & Away the better.

Anytime is fine by me - somebody better send Moptop a fax the day before and a couple of calls on the day.

Fitting in with Biz, Sunday, Monday or Wednesday would be good nights.

Some of those nights I'll be away at work, if I don't make it just give me the budgies and even I won't mind when they all fall over injured.

How about Wednesday 11th March, just after the pre-season games finish?

Last pre-season game is Monday 9th March.
1st regular season Thursday 19th March.

Wednesday 11th sounds good to me. Are we getting free injury substitutes up until the start of the season?

Yep - I reckon that's only fair. I'll write that into the rules.

I've popped this into the rules.

If a drafted player is injured or otherwise incapacitated between Draft Night and the DuFFLe deadline for team selection for Round 1, the franchise owner may substitute the drafted player for another uncontracted player.

Was it only for an injured player? I'm trying to remember the circumstances from last year. I think it was also related to people picking other franchise teams when the team owner couldn't be at Draft Night. Yes? No?

purple kit
Yep, I think there was something about free trades as well, not sure what the fine print was. Is it only if someone else picked for you, or was it open slather for anyone to peruse the uncontracted players list and replace someone they took in the heat of the draft?

Edit: found it in the rules. Open slather for two free trades that don’t count towards the 3 during the season.
“ Preseason Trades
From the time the DFFL Draft is completed until the bounce of the ball that commences Round 1 of the AFL, you may make two trades which do not count against your season limit of three (3).”

Don't forget to write in the other new rule.

"If your team name last year comprised of two words, both commencing with the letter J, then you get first pick in the draft this year."
