    There has certainly been a fair few people here who couldn't get the voting done within 26 days

    WINNER BY VOTING

    Unfortunately there was a disappointing turn out this year for the draft game voting. Only 7 competitors submitted their votes by the extended deadline, while 13 players failed to do so. As such, there are 13 players who have automatically received a zero for this section.

    I want to thank the six other posters who went to the time to vote this year. It would have been a disaster if no one bothered to vote but at least there were enough people participating to get a decent result here.

    So without further ado, I would like to present the winner by voting for the Awesome 2016/2017 Draft Game to...

    [​IMG]

    PUSHING THE LIMIT - DANOZ

    The full votes breakdown is as follows:

    #1 Pushing The Limit (Danoz) - 51.50
    #2 David Noble's Noble Davids (Scorpus) - 48.17
    #3 Faith FC (FAITH) - 47.08
    #4 The Tune Squad (Mr MysteryGuest) - 46.83
    #5 Spotted Dick Picks (Maggsy) - 46.33
    #6 The Harambabes (billy fragos) - 46.25
    #7 The Excusables (AdelaideFan14) - 44.75

    Want to know what could have been? Here's the votes breakdown, but censored ;)

    Sorry guys, I saved a reminder to do it tonight, I thought we had until this weekend for some reason!

    I can do mine this afternoon though, sorry it's late. Understand if that's too late now though.

    & nice work Scorpus for keeping it rolling.

    Apologies for not getting my votes in :(

    Plus I promised Hank93 that I'd fudge his votes for him, based on mine. So I should get a double zero really.

    I will do mine at some stage... Hopefully an interesting comparison to the final standings

    Looks like my best 22 is getting a lot of games, except for Brayshaw and Lycett. At least I knew Lycett would be gone for half a season

    My Stinkiest Picks
    Rnd 7 Pick 147 - Tom Barrass (West Coast)
    Thought he'd be going much better than he is. Not even a definite inclusion in their 22.

    Rnd 8 Pick 148 - Jacob Weitering (Catlton)
    Thought he'd be killing it down back. Instead is trying to learn the forward line caper and doing stuff all.

    Rnd 12 Pick 232 - Allen Christensen (Brisbane)
    Not sighted

    Rnd 13 Pick 273 - Jacob Hopper (GWS)
    Season never really got started now out with a broken finger I think

    Rnd 15 Pick 315 - Jonathon Giles (West Coast)
    Hadn't taken a ruck by this stage and was desperate. Thought Nankervis would slide. He didn't and I was stuck with a lemon.

    Rnd 18 Pick 358 - Fletcher Roberts (Western Bulldogs)
    Not playing

    Rnd 19 Pick 399 - Rhys Mathieson (Brisbane)
    Not playing regularly

    Rnd 20 Pick 400 - Sam Wright (North Melbourne)
    Is he playing? Haven't heard his name once this season.

    Rnd 22 Pick 442 - Jackson Merrett (Essendon)
    Again - is this guy playing?

    Rnd 23 Pick 483 - Archie Smith (Brisbane)
    Missing out on Nankervis meant I needed to roll the dice on several back up ruck options. This was strike two.

    Rnd 25 Pick 525 - Ivan Maric (Richmond)
    And strike three.

    Happy enough with my effort.
    Ballantyne injured again, would be playing.
    Knight best 22 just injured. Should be back. Hampton injured now too.
    Stanton no good.
    Cloke servicable but not ideal.
    Thompson injured.
    But for injury only real spuds are Stanton and Cloke and at least getting games.

    My favourite picks are Ablett, Yeo, Murphy, Menzel, Mitchell.

    Well, I haven't forgotten about this game!

    I'm in the process of entering in the relevant data for every player in the competition that was drafted. Obviously the final score cannot be calculated until after the B&F for every team later this year.

    However I can reveal the teams that, collectively, managed to get as many players on the park as possible. Here is the leaderboard sorted by games played:

    [​IMG]

    Games played will be a massive factor in the final score as no team got even close to the maximum possible games for a 22 player team (484 games)

    Some interesting things to note here:
    • Danoz, who won the competition by voting, selected a lot of players that simply didn't get games. Howlett, Dea, Laverde, Miles, Black, Bennell, Frost, Thompson, Collins, Jacobs all played fewer than 10 games, which stung badly. Top players like Gawn (14), Hanley (13) and Walters (17) playing less than a full season isn't ideal
    • DIY Brain Surgery in a similar position. Selections of Mayne, Vickery, Varcoe, Sandilands, Jong, Wellingham didn't pay off.
    • The five teams with 400 or more games played all had at least 9 players play 20+ games and nearly the entire top 22 play double digit games.
    • However, the top teams for games played had very few players in the All Australian squad
    • Elliott Yeo with Pick 218 was the latest pick to make the All Australian team
    • Tom Boyd and Jesse Hogan were poor first round picks due to the number of games played

    Wowee what a shockingly bad team. I should easily come dead last.

    And the winner is....

    [​IMG]

    Yep, I won. Which is a bit awkward as it looks like I rigged the competition because I also calculated the scores. But hey, the maths don't lie.

    [​IMG]

    Similar results to the above, but the B&F results did lead to a small shift around in positions. Mr MysteryGuest takes out second position by just a few points with some astute drafting of high B&F pollers.

    Danoz team was still terrible despite winning by voting.
