Hello Maners. It looks like we're getting a late start on sign ups for Fantasy Football this year. To be honest, I don't have a ton of time to run the league and didn't get a lot of help last year from APA who is extremely busy as well. Add to that the fact that Worm was supposed to assist and I think he died... So I will definitely be looking for some folks to assist and if there is anyone that is really interested in having a big role, would love to have a Co-Commish that can devote some time to the league.

We'll start with 20 teams. Entry fees are open for consideration, but I think the $45 from last year is ideal.

Please post on this thread if you're interested and will be returning.

Yeah, I probably can't commit what you really need for a co-commish again this year. Life, work, a second child, and season tickets just make it so I can't give you the help you need.

Sorry buddy

Will be sitting the year out as well.

I have never played FF, therefore the $45 is too high but you guiys have fun!!

Yeah and a 20 team league with folks who play here isn't the best way to start playing either. Still will be fun but Alex uses 20 to make the playing more strategic because you have to draft players who don't normally get drafted.

worm seriously died?

I can commit to help a little. What kind of commitment are you looking for, time-wise?

The guy fell of the face of the earth. But so did Dagmar and so did DramaLlama. Also I think we lost contact with phillybronco during the season last year too.

But it looks like Dagmar at least checks in as his last activity was June of 2012

At first, probably 10-15 hours to help set up teams, coordinate drafts, and be present for both drafts. After the season begins, basically just "on call" should a situation arise that would require assistance. Really, once the season begins, its not much... Maybe a full hour beyond the normal 20-30 minutes you spend setting your team and playing pickem and survivor.

PS, I hope that Worm is okay. We spoke the day before the first draft last year, he was traveling and was going to assist with some site improvements... Never logged in again. I hope he is okay, but last time I checked he hadn't logged into the mane either.

I'd love to play again. Sorry, can't commit to helping as I'm not sure the time would be there and I'd hate to let people down. But I would love to have a chance to take out CBF1. Will check back in to pay.

I'll help with it. Just let me know what I need to do.

Here's a question, though. Why do we keep using the same site for the league? It feels antiquated, when you look at the other stuff that's out there and available. I have been the commissioner of a family league we've done for about ten years. We use Yahoo, and there is never a hiccup. Granted, having two interacting leagues probably makes it a lot tougher. Is that the issue?

At this point, I've participated in leagues in all the major providers, and a handful of the less-popular ones. The one we use is the least intuitive one I've used.

theAPAOps5
07-16-2012, 08:35 PM
Actually if we just removed the orange mane theme and used the site in its generic format it isn't that antiquated. I used it in another league the past two years just using the regular old format. Looked much better.

The problem is I couldn't figure out how to remove that stuff or make it look better. Other sites are good too this just gives you a ton of customization with scoring.

I'll help with it. Just let me know what I need to do.

You were the champ last year, everyone always "gunns" for the champ. In the other league it's just because we are playing the first week.

Alex,

I am in. I have not watched a game of football since the Superbowl. First time in 10 years I have not rewatched the entire season in the offseason.

Plus, I can help Co-Commish if you need be.

Can we do another NON-traditional league where QB's get more points than the antiquated RB's in 2 RB league though?

Hey guys, if Alex can't get to it I will step up and set up the league especially if I can still get help from DomCasual and Mediator as they offered.

What I probably will do is still use My Fantasy League just because of the scoring variety you can set up. I won't use the theme we used in the past few years. It is just to tedious to and ugly and was set up with CSS and HTML files that we don't have complete access too, etc.

I will wait to hear tonight and then we can get something set up for a draft date. Hopefully we can keep this going and have some fun.

Med will be setting up shortly... Room for all of us to assist and have a role. I explained to Med, I am just too busy until Sept to put this together right now. If Apa, Dom, and Med will PM me their email addresses I will share the info. Only one point will handle the leaguesafe though, keeps it cleaner that way. Med will cover that portion. Ready....BREAK!

K. I can try to recruit some non mane people that are good solid fantasy players if you need some.

Also, in regards to non traditional scoring, you are talking about the same scoring type as last year right? I don't mind as long as passing, rushing, receiving, and defensive touchdowns are all 6 points. Hate that system where 4 points for 1 kind of TD and 6 points for another kind.

Yes, that is the type. No more QB's being devalued for RB's BS. This has not been a running league for ten years. FF needs to grow up with it.

Mediator12
08-08-2012, 01:16 PM
I think BMan said $45, but I would negotiate a lower rate to get more Maners aboard ;D

In other words, its not free, but its not going to price out everyone either.

Hey, we are still looking for 7 more players. Draft will be after third preseason game and possibly right before the season openers. $40-45 to play, there will be weekly money, two side contests (pick'em and Survivor), and you must be a DEN fan.

Interested, sign up here.

Thanks!

Okay, we have lots of good people who have offered to help on this. It's going to be a bummer if it doesn't happen; because a lot of us have passed up on other leagues, so as to not get our time spread too thin.

Med, if you are still having computer issues, let's get stuff delegated. We only have six days until the first game. Maybe we could use a different system, if the one we've used is too onerus to get set up quickly. We could also just start with week two, if we absolutely have to. Let's just do something. I don't want to bail on it.
