To be honest, I'd only expect one of our players to be of that ability, if only the selectors had the foresight to pick him and that is James Ley

How has chumpcott been playing? Is he a shot for barramundi's?

Why not Newcaste?  They definitely had 2 to 3 guys who had a great shot at Dingos (Chris warris, Jonno Holmes, and Tim Lavis)

You could combine Canberra and Newcastle and perhaps Wollongong into one team?

"Any player who is not accepted into NUFL in a core roster or as a free agent is effectively out of contention for the Men’s, Women’s and Mixed teams for Worlds 2008."
Anyone know what this means for OS based players? i.e. Sol, Bralow.
How did it work for them previously?

where's that quote from ruebs? i still haven't seen anything more than a proposal of selection procedure, not a finalised selection policy.

if i recall correctly last worlds had 3 compulsory selection camps, 2 in syd and one in canberra at the AIS. the overseas based players were required to attend a minimum of 2 of the 3 compulsory camps in order to be considered. they duly flew home and attended. not sure which events o/s players must attend this year though. i'm kinda curious how can any big names not attend nufl and be granted spots if nufl is the main selection point this year. not that i would deny matt (is slated to play one nufl, but not yet registered for worlds selection!!) and joel, they are good players, but you need consitency for all players. i know someone else, a rookie with a very strong case for selection in either women's or mixed, in a similar position, who can't attend nufls but wants selection. its a dangerous precedence without a selection policy.

ps. hey tom, thanks for the look-off...

It would be excellent to get a sixth team into the competition, assuming (Bris 1, Vic 2, Syd 2).

Currently there isn't a sixth core that complies to both the minimum of 10 players and the minimum of 2 widely considered Dingo contenders. I would think Canberra, Perth and Newcastle are the budding core venues however something will have to change to get one of those areas up. If not there is going to be a flood of free agents hey?

There are 33 names up on the rego that aren't in one of the 5 assumed core groups listed above.

Hilarious pissy.... But why did Deathstar pack it in? I realise it was around for world clubs but it worked through NUFL yes?

I agree Mike,
6 teams would be great, it would mean a minimum of 5 games for a w/e round robin (and more games in pools + crossovers + semis/finals etc).

more games at NUFL level can only be a good thing.

given the talent pools in Newc, Canb, Perth it is easy to see them combining to form a strong team, but the requirement to have a "core" locality is going to hamstring that idea.

My reference to selectors picking players for the *dingos* shouldn't be read as the selections for the Mundis. So, Morones, Chumpcott is certainly a chance at the mixed team and Adam, I thought you preferred mixed. I certainly think there are heaps of Canberra lads that have a shot at the Mundis and I hope some of us do make it but I really only think James Ley has the ability, inclination and standing in the frisbee community to make the Dingos

re: Brett
Newwie certainly do have a couple of Dingo players....but practically no one else that *wants* to play. You really can't hope to field a team if you can't field a *line*.

I certainly don't think that there will be a sixth team. And I also think that the 'dingos' criteria *isn't* really what would hold canberra back from doing well in NUFL. The difficulty is that circumstance has managed to distract most of the leader types in Canberra from actually stepping up to organise team trainings and structure, as such. The right people are all distracted by holidays, work commitments or the mixed season. We certainly expect to have the team structure there for NUFL next year but that is next year, not now.

The leadership and structure for Deathstar is also not there.

Quote
In order to provide an even competition the free agents will be distributed among all of the core teams rather than being allocated to a single team.

The above is from the team bidding document. People in charge of NUFL have recognised that it was an additional burden for deathstar to training together and that in the end, the results of that training weren't hugely impressive. They are trying to avoid placing that burden on another team.

Deathstar was for world clubs but if it had been a raging success I'm sure people would have tried to continue it. It was a great team to play on and people aren't adverse to playing with Canberra, Newwie, Gong again but it will never be under the deathstar name. Ultimately however, while filled with players of amazing ability, deathstar never quite performed better than the sum of its parts, which a slew of other NUFL/Clubs teams did.

Anywhoo, maybe for the next Worlds Clubs campaign.

Looks like Sublime are making a strong bid for being the 6th NUFL team.

They've now got 14 on their list now, hope they make it in but I also hope AFDA will help cover their airfares slighty, so that the burden isn't placed on individual players.

The NUFL core teams have been voted for and announced by the AFDA board.

Sublime has done extremely well to get the numbers for their team, and the final NUFL spot for the Open Division. Well done!

I imagine it'll still be all cost-shared.
But no confirmation yet.
