    A few rules:
    Get your entry in before the first game of Round 13.
    The competition runs from Round 13 through to (and including) Round 18.
    Use your existing FOG team. No new registration teams allowed (it's about managing the tricky period with probably only 14-20 odd trades left)

    What is encouraged:
    - Encouragement to your competition
    - You are welcome to list your Bye-friendly squads.
    - You are welcome to flex.
    - Numbers are great, how many are you playing for Round 13, Round 17?
    - Strategy ideas
    - Having a crack, even if it goes peer-shaped
    - POD's and no-brainer selections
    - How much your ranking has moved
    - You are welcome to use GIF's whenever, where-ever

    I will post some summaries and fun tables... maybe even some post Bye-period rewards

    YES - Absolutely
    It's a Real-Life comp for how you manage the bye-period on your primary team (i.e. who you registered in the FOG comp)

    I may as well post my team first:

    JBrailey
    Watson  Papali'i  Lodge
    Matterson  Fitzgibbon
    Fogarty  Moses
    Bird  Roberts
    Hynes  Doueihi  Laurie

    Brooks  Simpkin

    Starting the week with 17 trades left.
    Likely looking at trading Simpkin > Burton for 15 players in total (aiming for a 700+ score)

    My potential 17 for round 13 (with 14 trades left)

    Brailey
    Ipap, Watson, Lodge
    Barnett, Lucy
    Moses, Fogarty
    Bird, Burton
    Hynes(c), Laurie, SCrichton

    Mahoney, JDB, Brooks, Roberts
    Teddy, Cleary, Schuster, SWalker

    I'm going BIG this round, but will probably only have 8 or 9 for rd17
    Hynes and Burton should do score really well, Lucy had a great last game and will be a big IN if he wins at the judiciary. Barnett should play big minutes and have the GK, Lodge is also in good form.

    rank at the start of this round: 3596

    Shit, already made a meal of it. I clicked the link when I was signed in with my 5% POD team. Now I can't seem to remove myself from the league. Any tips on how to do it? I remember it being really easy at the start of the season?

    I have also entered my FOG team, just to make up the numbers.

    That's no problem at all.

    I did the same as i was logged into my 5% team. You can remove it yourself. Go to league, then settings and its down the bottom to remove your team from the league. My overall team is in now so i can show MS how its done Basketball

    Everyone is welcome!

    I'll try an match up all entrants with their overall rank in the FOG league, so am also planning to keep track of who makes the most ranking gain over the period
