2014 information below

No spots remaining!

After the success of last year, we're bringing back a BigFooty Bulldogs Ultimate Footy league - but this time as a Keeper League!

What this means just like the real AFL, you keep your list from year to year - after the initial draft which is this year, next year all newly listed players, plus existing free agents, get put together in a pool just like the real AFL draft!

We'll have 16 teams this year, with lists of 35 players each - that means that only a very few of actual AFL listed players will be Free Agents. It will also test your AFL knowledge, as the draft runs very deep - how well do know the fringe players from other clubs?

Of the remaining 15 spots, we'll keep 11 of them reserved for the players of last season for a week - but the other 4 spots are up for grabs! Mention your interest in this thread, and if you're an existing player confirm your participation

To join, simply head to ultimatefooty.com.au, create and account, then join a custom league. Filter custom leagues by Category-based scoring, online draft,

2016 info below


Two weeks!
All those who had a team in 2015 will have two weeks to confirm their entries. I'll tag them here, and after a week without conversation I'll message them. After that, anybody who wants to take over a team can register their interest.

Sign up below:

The above link is to sign up for the new season. There's no password or anything, so I trust only those who had a team in 2015 will sign up.
Post your 2015 UF team name (available in the original post of this thread), BF username, and your 2016 UF username if will change in this thread so I can confirm your participation and link your 2016 team to the 2015 team where you will be able to see who is on your team list

Trading and drafting
Draft order will appear later in this post. It's reverse ladder order for non-finals teams, and the reverse finals position for finals teams.

You have to delist three players from your 2015 squad (not trade them out to another team, but actually put them back into the player pool), and you have to take at least three selections in the draft - you have to do both of these things. In other words, if you delist three players, then trade a pick for a player and only have two free list spots, that's a no-no. Delisting is done through the UF website - in the "Nominate Keepers" section. Basically you tick a checkbox for the players that you don't want to delist. Your 3 delistings can include players that you are forced to delist if they are no longer on an AFL list through AFL delisting or retirement.

Draft will commence at some point in early to mid March. Draft will be a "slow" draft - online, but with multiple hours to make the pick. Do the right thing, don't take forever to make your pick. The amount of time per pick will decrease as the draft goes on. The draft includes all players not on an UF list at the end of 2015, all delisted players, and all players not on an AFL list in 2015 (so players from the AFL NAB draft) together in the one draft.

Trading can commence as soon as every participant has delisted at least 3 players, and will finish until, 24 hours before the draft. You can still delist players after people have begun trading. You can trade out picks, players, to pick for pick swaps, etc whatever you desire.

If you have a suspended Essendon player, tough luck. There was always a risk and in a way it's no different to a player with a season ending injury.
You can trade them, delist them or choose to keep them on your list - and they still take up a list spot.

Top-ups are like any other player for the purposes of his keeper league, even if we know players like Kelly, Jamar etc. are only going to play the one year.

Essendon are allowed to nominate top ups until March 15. If a player you were forced to delist because they are no longer on an AFL list, then becomes an Essendon top up, you're allowed to reclaim them even if other trading had commenced etc - but you still have to adhere to the "3 delistings" rule.

Other rules
Scoring - Category league, same as previous years, see OP
Players/team list size - same as previous years, see OP

There will be some changes to lockout times/emergency rules as discussed last year - nothing major or pressing so I'll read through this thread, see what the suggestions were and change accordingly.

All other rules should be the same.

Note: this post will be copied and edited to the OP (first post in the thread), but only the OP will be updated with trades/changing draft order due to trades. Check the OP, not this post on page 47.

I haven't played Ultimate Footy before...is it as time consuming as Supercoach? Cos I'm keen to have a go but don't want to jump into something else that I can't keep track of without too much difficulty....after all I do have a pieman title to defend as well!

It's a unique scoring system and the draft takes a while, but week-to-week I'd say it takes less time, though the draft will drag on a bit. I'd recommend playing.

Draft aside (which you can set to auto-pick if you want; just make a 'ladder' of your favourite players and it'll pick the one highest on your list when the right time comes along), it's much less time consuming. Team management is much less common and much more difficult as there's only one of each player; you can't just pick up any player you want at any point of the year. Therefore you don't really have to worry about making weekly changes.

It's also much easier for new players to learn. I reached the semis last year and it was my first attempt at UF, and had no clue what I was doing to start with.
