BBFFL#2 2019 Discussion


Tough game, sometimes. 5th most points, languishing in 11th. Clearly it’s the defences fault!


So just to float this out there for discussion, my understanding is the way our current Merv Neagle voting goes is highest scoring player from the winning team automatically gets the 3, then it continues on in scoring order. Looking at DtD’s Henderson performance against me on the weekend it’s hard to argue that he doesn’t deserve the 3…

I know it’s set up this way to try to mimick the ump’s preference to give votes for the winning side, but I’m wondering what people think of watering that down a bit to say if the highest scorer on the losing team is more than 20+ points ahead of the top scorer on the winning team he should still get the 3 (or something along those lines, maybe a point threshhold or something…) ? After all, whilst it’s more common for the winning team to get the votes, it’s not exactly that uncommon for the losing team to get them either.

Thoughts? Given the fact that the season is already underway, happy if people don’t want to change it for this year either, just thought it was worth a discussion.

BBFFL#2 Ladder After Round 5



Not the worst suggestion. The process of collating the votes is very manual as it is, so if something like this was implemented it would just mean another thing to consider when tallying everything.


Ellis turning out to be a solid mature age draftee (Pick 7) after the initial scare of being left out of Rd 1 Richmond team. Through 5 games he is averaging 94 as a defender.


Higgins starting to blossom as a mid


Nice game for mine tonight, 3 100+ and a 72. Best game for Vlastuin in a long time, was starting to think I’d made a mistake hanging onto him and Clarke, but they both got 90+ last week and another strong showing tonight. Hopefully heading in the right direction.


Rub it in why dont ya! :stuck_out_tongue:


I have picked up 3 players but could only delist 1.

2 of the players i wanted to delist have already played and can’t be delisted until Saturday 1.45, which is set as our lockout.

If anyone is concerned i can remove the 2 players in question from my named side, if not i will delist the other 2 Saturday.


No issue if the players you are cutting haven’t played AFL this week. However if they have played then you will need to cut someone else or the free agent. I can cut the players from the teams that have played if that’s what is needed.


Where do I find the waiver/FA order? I missed out on all the players I bid on this week.


Definitely surprised to get Answerth


It’s the RFA column on the right. Good news is that you’re up to 15th!


I’ve delisted 2 different players to get my list back to 30.


Think i might be headed for my lowest ever score this round.


Averaging over 100 for the 8 that have played so far but that’s where the good news ends. At least two donuts to come. Should be a percentage boosting win but will end up being a nail biter.

I’ve made 8 changes through the FA pool and haven’t fielded a full team once!!
