    Scheduling Idea for Next Dev League Season

    Bored as hell, so for some reason I came up with this idea.

    With the schedule for next season, I think it would be a good idea to have a schedule similar to the Australian Domestic season where teams generally play each other in a one day game then a pura cup game in a round.

    Given we have 5 teams we could have something like,

    Round 1:

    Jan 1 Reds v Black (FC)
    Jan 1 Green v Blue (FC)
    Colts (Bye)
    Jan 2 Reds v Black (OD)
    Jan 2 Green v Blue (OD)
    Colts (Bye)
    Jan 3 Colts v Black (FC)
    Jan 3 Blue v Red (FC)
    Green (Bye)
    Jan 4 Colts v Black (OD)
    Jan 4 Blue v Red (OD)
    Green (Bye)
    ...and so on...

    I just think this would make it clear for everyone, especially selection committees exactly when teams are playing. Teams would have two days off maximum (3 if rest day is added) which would give selectors adequate time to discuss changes to a side if a side has a bye. If a team doesn't have a bye they would be playing a few days in a row which would be good for activity.

    Sounds like Camps & Mork have gotten their paychecks and then sat back. Good idea, Wright, I like it.

    It's whatever I came up with at the start of the season.

    Sounds like a good enough idea. I'd still like the season to begin and end with an FC game, though.

    My proposal is just an idea and one that I encourage discussion on. Just because the season starts with a FC & OD game doesn't mean it has to stay that way throughout the season. You could start the first quarter with FC/OD, second quarter with OD/FC, so when you get to the final quarter you have OD/FC so you can begin and end with a FC game.

    Should be more FC games, imo.

    i dont like it cause teams will have two days off in a row too often. I was always under the impression that teams wouldnt generally miss more than one day unless there was a rest day either side.

    Agreed. Dont like missing one day let alone two. Plus i like Dave's 'More FC Games'.

    Think it should be about 2:3 ratio of OD:FC Games. More meaning.

    It's a bit unrealistic to have more five dayers. Besides, there are OD specialists and so on to consider. I think 50/50 is fine.
