    2016 MARATHON STADIUM DRAFT - EXPRESSIONS OF INTERST

    It's that time of the year again ladies and gents !!!

    The 2016 Marathon Stadium Draft is upon us and we are looking for our participants !!

    The official thread will be up in the next week or two so keep an eye out for it !!

    Priority will be given to participants from last year but we have set aside a few spots for new players

    So if you have never played before or you want to play again please submit your interest along with your team's name !!

    The winner will be decided the same way as we did last year

    Rules

    YOU MUST be on the forums regularly during the off season (preference once a day)

    Failure to make your selection within the time limit will result in a warning, After 3 warnings you will be excluded

    If you are going on holidays it is vital you notify either junior11 or rhugh89 so we can arrange to put your picks through for you

    Each side chooses 24 players (possibly to be reassessed when we reach the end of the draft, if we think there's enough players left to make the squads bigger)

    Your teams can be made up of up to FOUR Superleague players, ONE retiree (a player who retired from the NRL during 2014 or 2015) and an unlimited amount of NRL, Holden Cup, NSW Cup or Queensland Cup players

    This limit applies to trades as well e.g - If you already have 1 retiree you can't trade another retiree into your team

    Retiree picks can not be used as part of a trade deal, Only standard picks can be used

    A retiree is defined as a player who retired in the previous 2 seasons

    Retiree Picks are marked (R)

    Each random order will be run through TWO times, first from top to bottom, then reversed

    Then the order will be re-randomised again

    Bottom two

    Bottom two players in order are given preference for next order

    This means that if you are at the bottom of the list you can choose where you want to be in the following order & given automatic selection

    You can not choose to be in the bottom two again though, Everyone will get a turn being bottom 2 in an effort to make the competition as fair as possible

    Each player has 24 hours to make their pick

    This is in case you are unable to get to a computer during this time, however I encourage you to make your pick ASAP, for the benefit of other players in the game and also so your player does not miss selection

    If a 'coach' pulls out, and nobody steps up to take over the side, that side's players that have already been chosen are OUT of the draft and are not available for selection by any other team

    There will be three trading windows

    During this time, trades arranged with other teams can be announced

    These could be a straight player for player swap, or several players from one team for one player from another

    If a team ends up with less than 24 players, they can make more selections to fill up their squad at the end of the draft (once all other teams are full)

    Trades are negotiated through private message with both coaches, and then both coaches need to confirm the trade in the thread for trade to be official

    The trading windows will be announced by Junior11 and rhugh89 in due course

    I've pretty much lost interest in rugby league sorry. Never thought I'd say that.

    Just don't know what it is? It's just not fun. I don't know if the years of losing has taken its toll? But I didn't even watch the GF, but it didn't bother me. I'm more interested in the NBL

    I've lost interest too, still watched the grand final but I had plans all day that day so missed all the cup games and was content on missing final if I didn't make it home on time
    I think it's the Knights terrible form and just how poorly the NRL is being run of late, I'm more excited by the prospect of EPL than NRL too
