BBFFL#2 2017 Discussion


#1906

A few position changes announced for next year.

Ultimate Footy will take these positions at a minimum. ie they will never remove a position only add one.

Pretty happy with Menegola being a forward personally.


#1907

Boak and Mundy CF’s :+1:
Brandon Ellis B only :-1:


#1908

BBFFL2er’s a quick note to let you I’m shortly relocating with work lto Singapore. It shouldn’t cause too many issues for BBFFL#2 but I wanted to give the heads up in case life gets too hectic.

I’m all in this comp and looking forward to winning the flag in 2018!


#1909

Congrats mate!

Permanent move or contract?


#1910

Hard to say but I’m calling permanent! It’s with my current work so no set time.


#1911

Congrats mate, sounds exciting.


#1912

You’re coming back for the Geelong game right? :stuck_out_tongue: Congrats


#1913

I’ll do my best!


#1914

When does UF usually release the positions for 2018 season?


#1915

Usually around the start of Feb. So not long.


#1916

Also I’ve got an announcement I’ve been sitting on for a while - will try to get it out shortly. We will be welcoming a new coach for 2018.

BBFFL#2 Coaching Change for 2018

It is with some sadness that I publicly acknowledge the retirement of one of our original BBFFL#2 coaches. @smooth has decided to hang up the clipboard citing fatigue from “just watching footy and seeing someone get a kick and thinking and that’s worth 3 points”. He leaves the competition as one of our premier coaches. Statistically he leaves with the most wins as a BBFFL#2 coach – 98 wins from 129 games and as the only coach to have never missed the finals over the first 6 seasons of the BBFFL#2. His only slight disappointment might be to have only converted one of these six seasons of finals appearances, 5 prelim finals and two Grand Finals into one premiership. The premiership win came in 2014 where Smooth defeated @No_5 . Despite winning just one flag, he still have a positive record in finals having won 9 from 15 match ups.

The other record Smooth leaves with is the highest ever BBFFL#2 score of 1816 scored in Round 16 2015 against @saladin. He also has the 2nd highest score and all up 5 out of the top 10 highest overall scores – with @Bargey the only other coach with a top 10 score. (On a side note 2 of Bargey’s top 3 scores have resulted in him winning his 2 premierships – talk about performing when it really counts!!).

However it is with much excitement that I welcome our replacement coach – @Aceman. In addition to posting prolifically, Aceman is an all-round sportsmad South Australian. I am sure we have all seen his love for the Bombers and other sporting teams through his posts here on Blitz. I know I am very much looking forward to seeing him play some of this passion and knowledge into our great competition. So please join me in welcoming our newest BBFFL#2 coach. He comes into the comp with a great list, but it will interesting to see if Smooth’s substained success can be maintained.

Over the next week or so I will put together a plan for the preseason including key dates etc. Looking forward to another great season.


#1918

I have more flags than smooth, that’ll go down in history


#1919

Seriously though sad to see ya go mate. We had some epic battles over the year. At our peaks, we were hawthorn/Geelong like rivalry. Thanks for a good, fun rivalry

Welcome ace. You’ll never watch footy the same again


#1920

Sorry to see you go Smooth as you were a top coach who built a top squad. Cheers mate.

Welcome aboard Aceman good to have you in the comp.


#1921

Best of luck with whatever you do next Smooth. Welcome Aceman, I hope you really enjoy it here.


#1922

Without looking at @smooth 's squad I’m pretty sure I joined a year too early.

Welcome @Aceman , hopefully your list build isn’t as arduous as mine, pazza’s list was in diabolical shape.


#1923

If I had’ve known that Manc prick was gonna take over my team I’d have stayed on!! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: @Aceman good luck with the squad, I think it’s in pretty decent shape to be up there again in 2018, with a bit of luck and some good drafting/trading you can go all the way. To everyone else, thanks for the kind words. It was a bit of a tough one being a foundation coach in the league but by the middle of last year I was losing the enjoyment so I’d rather let someone else have a crack at it than have someone who isn’t going to properly engage in what is a fantastic competition.


#1924

One injury to Docherty and runs away! :stuck_out_tongue:

Well done Smooth. Dominated this league.

Welcome Aceman. I look forward to trading you all my SANFL players.


#1925

Sorry to see you go @smooth, unlucky to be walking away with just the 1 premiership really.

All the best to @Aceman, inherited a great team.
