    Sure. But voting took longer than the draft last year.

    Hello fellow competitors, as you may have read several posts above, adelaidecrows is a bit busy to complete this competition right now. That's fine, because I have volunteered to continue running this competition through to its completion.

    Let's get down to what will be happening in the next month

    VOTING

    As interest has waned in the game over the past few weeks, we will not be continuing with any more rounds of drafting. Unfortunately, an odd number of rounds has slightly disadvantaged some players like Kristof and Drugs, who had the last pick in both the first and final rounds, however it's too late now to correct this. Future games should have an even number of rounds to address this issue.

    Every team at this point should be finalized and have their full team listed correctly in their team post. These team posts are vital to the voting process, so be sure yours is accurate.

    To give people plenty of time to vote on everyone else's team (this has been a tedious process in the past, apparently), the voting deadline will be three days before the first AFL pre-season match. The voting deadline is Monday February 13th, 2017 at 11.59pm ACDT. This should give everyone three weeks to vote.

    Every competitor in this game must vote on every other team in the competition. Failure to vote by the deadline will result in your team receiving a score of 0. You will also be publicly shamed and humiliated.

    Votes should be submitted to me (Scorpus) via a DM before the deadline. Please try and lay out your votes in an easy-to-read fashion so I can quickly chuck the figures into Excel. Even better, just send me an Excel spreadsheet.

    The results and winner by voting shall be revealed on Wednesday February 15th. The winner can bask in their glory before everyone realizes they actually have a crap team after watching pre-season matches.

    SCORING PROCESS

    We will be using the scoring process outlined in the OP.

    Your submission to me via DM must contain a scoring full breakdown. Half-assing this is not in the spirit of the game. Plus, getting a full breakdown will allow me to award some teams with 'best midfield', 'best defence' and 'best forward line' trophies.

    SUBMISSION CHECKLIST

    When I have received your votes, I will update the following list of competitors to indicate this fact. You can also use the list to remind/shame/pressure/blackmail other posters into voting if they haven't done so.

    As a courtesy, I will remind everyone who hasn't voted one week and one day before voting closes.

    I have updated my team list, and provided commentary just to highlight how awesome my team is.

    Even the great SHAUN ATLEY agrees that the team is dominant without him, but put him in the mix and... wowee.

    If anyone happens to do up a spreadsheet template... that would be nice.

    Sounds like you're happy with a zero ;)

    (Although you'll still be in the game for the end of season scoring)

    My voting is completed.. I won't drop any names, scores etc, but I will say.. it's damn tight up the top..

    Out of a possible 65 total.. my highest score given was 56 .. AND there are 16 teams between 49-56.

    It was clear when I was going through everyone's teams that the majority of teams drafted well and had a great spread of talent..

    Silly question.. but you don't vote on your own team do you???

    I'll be honest. Haven't even started voting yet. I bought a house a week ago, so I'm pretty busy at the moment.
