BBFFL#2 2019 Discussion


Damnit didn’t swap out Vlastuin in time :confused:


How do we do Free agencies in this league?


I’m an absolute basket case. When does trade period start??


Make your claim (signing) for a restricted free agent tonight on Ultimate footy. The system will automatically allocate the signing post-midnight in priority order (if more than one coach signs a given player). Unrestricted free agents are then open for signing up until the first bounce of the Friday night match.


I think it’s about round 11, runs for two weeks iirc.


so I just made a FA claim and he came straight into my team - did I break the rules? Happy for it to be reversed, coffee hasn’t kicked in yet and I read this and I thought I wouldn’t get them until


A little surprised that so few teams put in for free agents.

I count five sides in the league who at this stage will not have a full 18 this week. Three of those five teams can improve on their current situation by signing someone before lockout (which for reference is today for the Friday game players and at the time of the first Saturday game for everyone else).


so I can? I am guilty of not getting around to it, and wanting to now.


no you did not break the rules.

The only players who will be ‘locked’ now will be Richmond and Collingwood players, because they already played in round 2 and also those players who have just in the last 24 hours been delisted.

All other players are open to pick up until lockout.


Done. No one will ever say that the Notorious BIX don’t sacrifice young talent for 18 on the field.


General rule of thumb for those new to the league:

  • If you need a midfielder or ruck you’re likely going to need to submit a free agent claim BEFORE Friday.
  • If you need a forward or a defender, there will likely be players available on Friday.


When Kegan Brooksby is pumping out 100s on a regular basis Notorious BIX may look back on this as a seminal moment.


Can you make as many FA changes per week as you like? up to 30 per year?

My players also went straight into my team. Any issue?


No that’s all good. Unlimited per week and 30 changes for the season.


@ivan I think you need to have a word to Tom Papley - 7 frees against isn’t good for his fantasy scoring.

We’ve discussed it. He knows where he went wrong and he’ll take some really good learnings out of tonight’s performance. It’s all just about becoming the player Tom wants to become.


Pretty good game between No5 and I. I was flipping a coin between Acres and Marshall and I chose the wrong one. Might cost me, methinks. And every time Fanta and Stringer missed goals I just shook my head sadly.


Looking likely that @Come_Back_Hirdy will knock me off my perch. Just too many under performers in my squad at the moment.


The trade period can’t come quick enough. Sigh.

I hit the FAs hard and there’s not a single C selected that’s available via FA this week.
