It's probably too early to start worrying about such things, and probably more unqualified at this point to run it. I've just been wondering about these lately...

If an Olympics comp was to be run next year, how would it fit into the calender? assuming that Can-Am would most likely be running during the duration of the Olympics next year like it has this year (and possibly the Bondi Beach Gridiron)

I was thinking of calling it AGL for Australian Gridiron League or something else.
Anyways if you're interested in a gridiron design competition, like this post and if we get the go ahead we'll see when we can fit it in :)
Is it time to now begin discussing/preparing for this caloschwaby?

Is it time to now begin discussing/preparing for this caloschwaby?
I think it is, got the logos and general idea of the structure sorted. It will be conference/division-based like the NFL.
Only concern is when to start and finish, as Nato and I have exam time beginning around early October and I'd really hate to half-ass it once they come around (though I'm not sure if it will impact my ability to study or the other way around).

I was thinking a few things in order to mitigate this or get around it entirely: begin the season sometime in October/November (ensuring NAFL's spotlight isn't fully taken). This is depending on the time we have to fit this in on the FJGD schedule, but each team could play every other team once (teams will be ranked in their conferences still), ensuring we see the full range of matchups. If polls are 2/3 days, the competition could run for round for a month and a bit, though this depends on how many people join. Nato and I will probably plan around 8/10 entries (including ours).

So, it's all ready to get the ball rolling. No doubt next year with school behind in the dust we'll be able to make this competition sometimes special, but for now it will have to have a humble beginning.

The competition will run under a conference system which will be used for the purpose of playoff standings/seedings only.
Each team will play every other team once, with 4 Home and 4 Away games + an extra special theme TBD (providing we get 10 entries, can be adjusted accordingly in future).
The draw of who plays who and where is to be decided by a random drawing via www.fixturelist.com

With 9 Rounds + 4 Round Playoff series to be on 3-day polls (for example), the competiton should run for roughly a month and a half (39 days).
Could play around with the start date, but a October 1st start would see the competition end roughly on December 9th, making it relatively shorter and limiting any encroachment on the summer competitions. This would only be pushed forward to allow people to get entries in :)

With that, and until I recieve the magical 10 likes, we're ready to go to initiate the bidding/design phase for the inaugural season of the competition.
