    It would be logical for a 27 year old who had spent 10 years in a youth acedamy to be much better than a 27 year old who signed up in the first season having only played football with his mates prior to that.

    Having said that, I think that people should only be able to attend the youth acedamy up to a certain age, and the points should be gradually reduced (from 17 year olds = 5 points to X age year olds = 1 point) to that time.
    REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.

    Proud to be a member of the CW Colts

    Good point Towns

    To add to that, if say the 17-19 y/o's were allowed 5 points, yet have to allocate the different as the get older. Eg. 17y/o can add a maximum 4 points to any one stat, 18y/o 3 points, & 19y/o 2 points.

    Thats the plan i have in mind.. This 1st Academy is really just aimed at giving players the basic skills to compete with some of the better players in the league..

    I agree, as stated

    I know we wanted younger players to be better eventually, but by this much (at a, imo, modest estimate)?

    Things like lowering the age for players eligible to attend, Lower the amount of stats that a player is given for attending the camp, etc...

    I dont think its as major as your suggesting at this stage...
    Problem is, people will see it as being an unfair advantage if you now lower the subsequent bonuses to be had...

    Kind of gutted that national team members can't attend, i'm pretty sure our tackles, passes etc were never added to our league totals or anything. :{

    Edit: unless you meant for the NZ game only...in which case, I think I got 2 into tackle and 1 into passes, please.

    Somebody joins next season, and their academy isn't as good, say only gives out 3 points versus today's 5 points, and they're like "OMGWTF, they got to improve by more, waaaah, unfair advantage, waaaaah, I can't take it anymore, they got 5 and I only got 3, they'll forever be better than me, waaaaaah, it's over."

    *Cue elaborate car chase scene*

    y'know?
