Hi all - my name is manang, and I'm a moderator over at the Sweet F.A. board on Bigfooty. Nice to meet you.

You may have noticed on the main board that we have decided to run a simulated AFL season using the algorithm we use in the Sweet F.A.


Just for some background, Qooty is a completely random football simulator - it takes lists of players and generates commentary of a football game, in doing so generating results/stats etc.

What we are going to do is use real player names and simulate the 17 round AFL season with all clubs on board.

Each week there will be 2 rounds, complete with match threads for banter against opposition fans. At this stage it seems these threads will just be in the main board but that may change.
At the end, there will be a Brownlow Medallist and Coleman Medallist as well as a Norm Smith medallist.

Because we have no GCS fans currently in the Sweet F.A, I have volunteered to be the coach of the Gold Coast side. While I’m a Richmond fan, I have a soft spot for GC because of the Tigers players you have on your list - especially Snipper Miles and Brandon Ellis.

If any of you would like to take over from me and are happy to name the team sheet each week instead of me, feel free to shoot me a PM.

All this means is that I will be the one submitting our team sheet for each round, but I will be looking to YOU to help me out with what changes we think need to be made or should be made.

For example, you might want to give Corey Ellis a shot on a wing, but if he stinks it up you might want to drop him for the next match. I’d be the one to submit the team sheets in the correct format and list any changes.

For round 1 we are just using the AFL R1 named teams (minus two from the bench, as Qooty only needs 20 players). We won’t care if a player is injured in real life - if he’s in your best 22 we can name him, so if you have players who couldn't play in Round 1 of the real AFL season, we can make some changes to the team for the next round and each successive week.

The intention is for this to be a bit of fun - a distraction from everything else that’s going on. Because the SIM is random, there’s a chance the Suns could play finals or even jag the flag!

Let me know if you have questions, or otherwise/in addition head over to the main board and look out for the match thread (I'll create one shortly).
