Welcome to the Drafts, Trading and Free Agency board.

Please ensure you adhere to the following guidelines as well as the Big Footy rules.

- Don't insult posters, don't insult teams

Trolling teams based on prior trades, drafting or list management will not be tolerated. Remember that you are not on Bay 13 or your team's own board. By all means defend your team, but don’t attack the poster, their club or representatives of the club. Not everyone is a draft and trading expert, so show some patience and respect. Try helping them rather than abusing them.

This includes the use of Bay 13 nicknames like Norf, Carltank, Bears, Essendrugs, plastics, Tuggers, etc, or posts that boil down to "haha your team's crap".


- Dragging posts and discussions from team boards

If you want to reply or criticise something on a team's board post there, not on here. They are separate boards.


- House-keeping

Please search first before creating new threads, just because it's not on the first page doesn't mean it's not there. Threads regarding past trades, trade speculation and free agency signings are now housed in The Wash Up sub-board, where a more relaxed approach is welcomed. Draft-related discussions are now housed on the Draft Hub sub-board, while draft and trading games (other than BigFooty official competitions) are to be conducted on the Other Footy Games board.


- Confirmed trades

Don’t post anything as being a confirmed trade, unless it has been officially announced. Rumours posted as fact will result in red cards being handed out.


- Reproduction of articles

Nobody is permitted to post entire articles, regardless of where they have come from. Pick out the important part, up to a paragraph in length, and post that along with links to the original article.

Hi all,

An important update as we enter the player movement period -

We are now entering the peak period on the DT&FA board. Whilst we encourage discussion and different views, we ask that you are mindful of the rules of both this board and the site.

We have a zero tolerance attitude towards trolling, especially through this busy time. Thread bans and infractions will therefore be handed out as necessary.

Feel free to approach us respectfully in private to query any infraction or ban received. Discussion about infractions or bans publicly on the board may result in further infractions.

You may have noticed a change with one of our sub-boards. It's been sitting unused for a few months, and is now being repurposed as a home for player threads from past seasons: The Wash Up.

Our intention in setting up a separate sub-board for these threads is to allow a little bit more freedom with the type of posting that is permissible in there, with light-hearted banter both expected and encouraged.

Please be sure to read the rules of the new sub-board before posting, as they differ from other boards you may be familiar with.

Please also note that the rules for the main part of the Drafts, Trading and Free Agency board remain as they have always been, with a zero tolerance for trolling.
