Who fucken cares about LaTuff. They were a failure of a team last year. In fact, they underperformed so much last year, they didn't even bother failing this year. The competition will be better off without them

Unlike Monash, who really exceeded everyone's expectations last year and had a cracker of a result... wherever they ended up finishing...

Pretty rich coming from someone on a team who backed up a gold medal with a failure to put a team together.

It's good to see the heckling starting up already. What I'm curious about though is the draw. I'm a big fan of lots of games over the 5 days. Something in the 9-11 range. I really enjoy playing games at AUG and the more the merrier. Also with the new 18 person team limit more games will benefit those teams with more depth to their roster and who use both their girl and guy lines. But basically more games = more fun.

Depends how many teams come.

The feedback from last year was that 11 games was too many and the standard of the playoff games suffered as a result. They were all a case of "who can still move about" rather than "who is better at ultimate". Going for around 9 or 10 games this year. Also depends on the number of teams, and the single or split division.

I'll should know sometime after the 24th what teams we have, so we'll start bitching about the draw after that.

i didnt mind 11 games....we did have a large and deep roster which played pretty even number of points across the tournament. apart from the 4 game day which was tough, it wasnt any more painful than any other frisbee tournament. however i can see how teams with smaller rosters or a small number of players who play a majority of points may find it tough....but we are there to (mostly) play frisbee, and 5 days is a long time.

Yeah, it's easy enough for the large, experienced squads. The change is more accommodating to the mid-to-lower level teams who bring squads of 12 with about 20 games of experience between them.

The warmer weather also makes a difference. I remember the Friday games in 07 being more frisbee than ultimate.

How would you know Pissy? Wasn't that the day you got carted off to hospital for being a dehydrated booze hound?

Any requests for the AUG draw format?

I'm probably gonna say no to all of them, but ask anyway.
