I am hoping the guy I want will slide to #88. As if.
Not a stupid question mate.
UF will automatically transfer the keepers, but it doesn’t allow me to dictate which picks I want them allocated to - it just dumps them in the first 20 slots.
Given we have a custom draft order rather than a simple repeating ladder order every round, I find it easier to input running the live picks from 1-180 rather than 361-540, which means manually re-allocating the keepers in the first 10 spots to the last 10.
Usually I re-allocate all team keepers Friday night, but seeing I was running later than I wanted, I opted to leave some to do today.
Ouch. Sounds like a lot of work. Thanks for all you do!
@fogdog - Barring new information, that’s a no on Wines. He was listed as 4-8 weeks, but that was 2 weeks ago - expected return then was Rd 3 or 4.
I get the sneaky suspicion that Ward’s injury will be one of those 2 to 3 week injuries that ends up being 8 to 10.
No worries, thanks for checking.
Looks like an opening round equal top of the table clash with the Crunchers coming up.
Having purposely not looked at the opposition side, we’re supremely confident. As long as the nursing home let a few of our boys out to play.
Might want to hold off on trying to sneak a look at Mad Bomber’s training sessions, sal - we’ve always used a custom draw here - stay tuned to UF over the next 48hrs for your round one opponent.
Re Questionnaire: Does anyone have last years ladder or the link to last years UF?
And if you wanted the top 8 post-finals:
Awesome. Thanks mate.
@saladin - Will be starting his FF Original career at home against 2017 Premiership winner Windy Dill.
The remainder of Rd 1 is as follows:
Fudge vs. Allblack
The_Mad_Bomber vs. Vandrs
Stoops vs. fogdog
Awesome Scotty vs. Alber_Goodthur
wimmera vs. Dunlop

The remainder of the other 18 rounds will be input into UF when I have time over the next week.
Though here are the return encounters this season:

I doubt anybody is that interested in this, but sal given you’re new here is how the draw & return matches are processed…
- 1 of the 2 return matches is automatically set from where a team finishes the previous year
- For the 2nd rd, the GF competitors and bottom 2 are handicapped to meet teams within their half of the ladder. I’ll then use a random number generator to determine those, before the rest of the league.
- Unfortunately as the algorithms for free tournament draw sites don’t produce true random draws, I run the league ladder through a list randomiser before feeding that into the free draw site I use.
- From there I’ll swap Rds 15-17 around if necessary to ensure there is always a minimum of 3 weeks between any return games.
Given yourself a soft game first up, eh?
Love your work.
Always nice to get the season started with a win!!
