Sounds exciting - what is it all about?
You can check the previous thread. Basically we create teams, then go through a draft of every AFL player. Then we vote on who has the best team, and at the end of the 2020 season there's also a numerical winner based on stats

It runs for a few weeks, lots of fun if you enjoy eating and drafting players

Can someone please bump last years thread ... LazyP
You can find it here:


Rules will be very similar. We'll use a snake draft, 2 hours per pick during active hours, the idea is to fill up a squad with the best players. Each team will take 30 picks.

There will be no pick or player trading this year. It's too complicated to manage and for others to follow. However there will be an opportunity to swap your draft position with another player if you wish before the draft begins

Thanks Scorpus ... so the points scoring system works how and do you have to pick for positions or just pick best available ?

Thanks Scorpus ... so the points scoring system works how and do you have to pick for positions or just pick best available ?
So there are two ways to win

1. Voting System

Everyone votes for their top 8 teams. So you'd look over everyone else's team and create a ranking for the top 8. This happens straight after the game finishes

Those top 8 teams then go into a playoff system where one team is pitted against another (1v8, 2v7, 3v6 and 4v5). Participants vote again and we work through to a grand final. The team ultimately crowned winner in the GF is Winner by Voting

2. Points System

This is determined after the 2020 season concludes. Each player you draft accrues points as follows:
  • Games Played: 1 point per game
  • Brownlow Medal: 20 points for 1st place, 15 points for 2nd place, 13 points for 3rd place down to 1 point for 15th place
  • All Australian: 15 points for team, 5 points for squad
  • Coleman Medal: 15 points for 1st place, down to 1 point for 15th place in the goal kicking list
  • Club B&F: 10 points for 1st place, down to 1 point for 10th place
  • AFL Player Ratings: 10 points for 1st ranking at the player's club, down to 0 points for 30th ranking
  • AFLCA Coaches Award: 10 points for 1st place, down to 1 point for 10th place
  • Norm Smith Medal: 10 points
  • 22under22: 5 points for team
  • Premiership Player: 5 points for each

  • Every player drafted accrues points in full, up until a maximum of 484 games (22 players x 22 games) are played across your squad.
  • If your squad plays more than 484 games in total, the score for your lowest scoring players will not be counted proportional to how many games over the 484 limit your squad is
  • For example if your squad plays 490 games, and your lowest scoring player plays 10 games, 6/10 games will not count for that player, so only 40% of their score will be added to your total
There are also positional restrictions to ensure you don't draft a team of midfielders
  • Your team of 22 must include a minimum of 6 forwards, 6 defenders, and 6 midfielders.
  • Your team of 22 must have at least 2 rucks. Each ruck must average at least 2 hitouts per match to qualify.
  • Your team of 22 must have at least 2 key position forwards and at least 2 key position defenders.
  • Your emergency list must contain at least 1 defender and at least 1 forward.
  • All positions except for second ruck to be defined by the AFL Player Ratings System

  • (Positional requirements are only to stop people 'cheating' by selecting an entire team of midfielders. I'm usually quite lenient on this aspect)
  • Failing to meet the positional requirements will result in 1/22th of your score being deducted for each required player that you fail to include in your squad.
  • For example if your best 22 only has 5 defenders, 4.5% of your final score will be deducted

This is generally the strategy people take:

Early rounds: draft players you think will be All Australian
Mid rounds: draft players you think will be top 10 at their club's B&F
Late rounds: draft players you think are best 22 at their club

Things that don't work well: drafting first year players outside the very top picks, drafting players who will miss a portion of the 2020 season with injury

Also, whoever drafts DMAC is automatically banned for 12 months
