Did anyone one else recognise the significance of the fact that a current selector thinks only one of the old bastards will make the team? maybe some new blood for the dingoes is on the cards.........

LOL I didn't say anything because I thought I was reading into the comment too much but I was thinking it.

What is more interesting is that 3 of the 4 mentioned (excluding Truter) are all also applying to be on the Mixed team, and much like the Masters team those 3 would make a significant difference to the Mixed team should they not make the Open team. So it would be interesting to know in the event they don't make the Open, which team they choose to play on (assuming that they'd walk onto the Mixed or Masters team).

I think what he said was that only 1 had a first preference for mens. I suspect some are designating mixed as first priority. I'm guessing we won't see JD or Pottsy on the masters team.

I know Pottsy has put open as his first preference which means that the rest are out or put other preferences.

assuming with that in mind:
JD and Boo Boo = Mixed
Piers = Masters/out (pretty confident he has to pull out for financial/personal reasons)

That said, I would have agreed with Chris that many of them would have made open.  I was backing JD to be Offensive Handler, and Piers to be Offensive Receiver.  I still back Pottsy to make it as a Defensive Handler.  Anyways, good to see ultitalk active, brings a smile to my face everytime, heheh  Grin

The new eligibility rules are out for worlds players.

http://www.wfdf.org/rules/NTPER_WFDF_Ultimate_Worlds_Events_2007-12-17.pdf

What does this mean?

Well, from a quick scan of the worlds squad, I can see a couple of players that this affects:

Billy Alexander
Brett Matzuka
Claire Hussey
Chris Freise

Don't know if thats a full list.

Here are the relevant entries:

3.2.  WFDF Citizen
Players are also deemed to be "WFDF citizens" if they have moved to the country at least
four years prior to the start date of the event and spent more than 75% of those four years in
the country.

3.4.  Ultimate Community Member
Players are deemed to be "Ultimate community members" at the discretion of the National
Association if they are considered to be a significant part of that Country’s ultimate
community, but don’t fall under the above categories.   
The following may be taken into account by the National Association in making this decision:
Residency history in that Country
Participation in that Country’s ultimate events, especially national championships
Past representation on National Teams
Participation in the development of ultimate in the Country 

You are allowed up to four WFDF citizens on any one team and then up to one Ultimate community member on one team.

Brett and Freisy are probably in the WFDF citizens class, so that probably covers them.

Hussey and Billy will probably have to go for the Ultimate community member, which probably just means they can't both play on the mixed team, which isn't likely to be a problem.

Sooo, the long and the short of it is that I don't think there will be any tricky problems for these darlings of the Australian ultimate community, huzzah!

I think you've misread the policy Tom.

Quote
4.2. Team composition
A Team may have on its roster:
  • any number of Legal Citizens or WFDF Citizens,
  • a maximum of 4 Resident Non-Citizens
  • a maximum of 1 Ultimate Community Member replacing one of the Resident Non-
    Citizens.
It is the "resident non-citizens" which are restricted
Quote
3.3. Resident Non-Citizen
Players are deemed to be "Resident non-citizens"
a) if they own a legal certificate of permanent residency issued by the country's
government; or
b) if they have moved to the country at least 20 months prior to the start date of the event
and spent more than 75% of those 20 months in the country.

Another person who is likely to fall under this is Diana Worman - I think she has permanent residency so that would make her a Resident non-citizen.

Ahh yeah, I read it much earlier and in the space of a few hours my memory went to work and switched things around.

Where is Di originally from? And do you have official citizenship for here or what?

I'm a "WFDF Citizen". I've been living in Australia for over 4 years (over 5 in fact). (even though I'm a NZ citizen)

Obviously the mini-crisis' are something to be kept confidential but who else has pulled out? I'm aware that Piers has effectively been sidelined by money issues. Who else is out?!?
