    Season 9 Reflection and Assessment

    Please give feedback here as to how you think the season has gone. This is not a thread to post what new things you think can be brought in for next season, but please comment on the things that have been done this season and how well or poorly you think they were done.

    Basically this is a review of the season in terms of how well it was managed and run. I am open to criticism and would just like to hear the general thoughts of everyone so that the Dev League can continue to improve.

    Once again, this is a thread to comment on existing practices, not things you would like to see in the future.

    Personally I think this has been a great season, it's been really well managed and I'm appreciative of your work Not to mention it's going to a thrilling last quarter

    The whole introduction of the Colts - it hasn't been without some hiccups, but it was very smoothly done and they've now become just another team. Good work, keep it up

    I think the one improvement based on current sign ups that I'd like to see will be coming in to be honest.

    One thing I think that is missed by a lot of people is the reason for Dev Cricket though...

    No complaints. Very smoothly run season all round, the extra team worked well and I can't say I missed the Smash stuff at all.

    From a Colt's point of view, it's been a fantastic time. Really enjoyed it, and appreciate the hard work put into it.

    Also - Smash was crap, don't miss it at all. One thing I don't like, however, is byes.

    I'm pretty sure that from a selector's point of view, the byes are good as it gives you a chance to take stock, reassess, etc. for future selection policy.

    I think the season has gone quite well.
    • Smash has gone
    • New team integrated well
    • Internationals run smoothly


    On the other hand
    • Less "Community" activity
    • Byes


    I think, somewhat, the byes have hurt a little. It's obviously not as exciting when you (if you're like me and don't check the schedule) check out the games for the day and your team isn't involved. Not sure if there is much to be done about this, can't very well get rid of a team, but I wouldn't advocate adding another at this point. On the other hand, the byes have certainly helped management committees, and as such it seems that the other teams have gotten more involved with the actual work involved with their respective teams.

    As to community activity, it seems we've somewhat segregated into our own little team groups, and there is seemingly less "CW" spirit. I think, personally, that there has certainly been too much animosity on the boards. I find nothing wrong with friendly rivalry, but I think in some instances it has gone too far. Certainly as a Red, I feel we've been victimised by other members of the community for our outspoken ways, and this has led to a "them or us" attitude. I'll admit that often we've somewhat brought it down on our selves, but nevertheless feel that, on the whole, the community spirit was lacking. I was also somewhat dissappointed by the lack of media by the community, although Pickup's recent articles have been a joy.

    I can't really pinpoint it in the end, perhaps it's a mixture of a lot of little things, but I did feel that this season lacked that little bit of spark required to take it from being good (and don't get me wrong, the season has been good), to great. I'd be interested to hear other peoples thoughts on the matter.

    Personally:

    A fantastic year, I have stood out in the OD game, and tbh, it's the first season I've felt that I've developed a long way.

    5D, I've not been as good, but I've still played OK when Hakon's been away,

    In all:

    Don't like byes.
    Not as much activity really.
    OD sim ****ing up so much, is crap.

    But:

    IT'S BEEN REALLY CLOSE!!!

    I mean, think about last year.

    Green and Black were in all 3 finals.

    But this year's been so close in both forms, with all 5 teams being there and there abouts.

    So, good season, close season but with some faults.
    Or something.
