I usually do a $99 CBS league outside of my main league, just for some side-action. I'd gladly jump into a $100 league here instead if we could round up 10 players.

I'd prefer 12 if we get it together. That means you play everyone once, just works better for the scheduling and teams are more even imo.

how much? and whos gonna hold the money?

Popps
08-08-2009, 05:31 PM
Only problem with CBS is that it cost $125 or so to run your league there. Well-worth it for a main league where you're putting in a couple hundy or more each. But, for a smaller stakes league, it's iffy. I guess it would only be $15 a piece or so.

I'm in for whatever. Lock me in if it happens. Would rather do my second league with you clowns than strangers on CBS. I'm fine up to $100 or so.

I don't care who holds the $. I'm happy to, or someone else can. How sad would someone have to be to steal that little money from fellow fans. (In a way that's very traceable.) Just don't let Boob or Lex in, and we'll be fine.

I run my league through http://www.myfantasyleague.com/ - excellent service (I like them better than CBS). I think it's $90 for mfl without the early bird discount.

I may be interested in this orange mane league depending on the buy in.

I would be willing to let Taco hold the money or someone everyone agrees on (since I'm kind of a newbie)

Works for me. The only issue I had with Yahoo was a weird waiver-wire system. I can't recall how it worked, but if it's free... we'll work around it.

Looks like we have 5 already. My only other issue is draft day. Anyone opposed to a Labor Day draft? (early afternoon, late morning) Seems like everyone should be off of work.

I'm in if this all works out, details-wise.

Have you guys seen this? It's single-player (for those who get fill out a league) with a chance to win $250,000 -- for free. It's also good practice if you want to do a 12-team mock draft.

I run a money league on myfantasyleague.com, right now we have 11 players and we possibly may have 1 or 2 openings, the league fee is $35. cash prizes for the winner, we will vote to see if we want to give cash prizes for 2nd & 3rd as well.

If you guys start a money league Let me KNOW!!!!

I have been dying to get in another one. Plus i have several people who would also be willing to join (if we come up short on teams that is).

My buddy was going to start one, but we only had 5-6 teams. So we are all looking for more players or a money to Join.

And we are very serious.


PM me - whatever, but i am in for sure!

And maybe 2 more if I4J and run silent are interested. I've already got the league set up on Yahoo when we get 3-4 more guys. And if folks are OK with it, I can hold the money. I do it for my pay league so I'm used to it. I've been a poster here since 2002 and I believe that the mods could vouch for my trustworthiness. And I'm never leaving the OM, esp for just a few bucks.

As far as buy in goes, how about $50 or $60? That sounds like a compromise between $35 and $100.

Doggcow
08-09-2009, 10:57 AM
I dont mind doing a $50. Would we be doing a waiver fee as well at like $1?

I have never done a league on yahoo, nor have i ever done an online draft, so if you could post the league rules or link, and maybe a quick tidbit on how an online draft works that would be great!

I'm in... of course you can hold the money, and any amount is fine with me.

Once we get 10 guys, before we pay or set the league up totally, let's all get on the same page as far as rules. (Yardage, bonuses, etc.) There are usually strong opinions regarding that stuff, so let's just have everyone on the same page.

The other key will be draft day and getting everyone locked into a time.

Looks like we're close to ten. (Or even 12.) Plenty of time left, of course.

I think the Mane does a free league every year, here. (Usually with several divisions.)

I'd think this little pay league would be separate from that, of course.

O.K... unless anyone objects, let's just call it 50 bones.

So, we've got 7 people so far. Let's hold off on making rule decisions (add-drop fees, etc.) until all 10 or 12 are in. That way everyone has a fair say.

So, we're a few people away... let's see who jumps in, and then regroup on structure, etc.

Cool?

I agree. NFL.com should be cool unless anyone objects. Someone mentioned that Yahoo had free stat-tracker this year. Does NFL.com offer that for free leagues? (Real time player score check, etc.)

underrated29

good with me big poppy.

Since this is your guys site and ideas, i will hold off, but if we find ourselves needed some more people i can round some players up to compete with.

I wont tell them yet though,give the peeps here a chance to get in. Just let me know if we are short and i will give them the green light.

underrated29
08-09-2009, 02:33 PM

There is a site called fleaflicker.com i believe, they might do that stuff for free. I will go ask dogfish, he will know.

Doggcow
08-09-2009, 02:34 PM
I dont know about Yahoo, but the format on nfl.com is great (if I can change the scoring and stuff)

I'd rather have a PPR league (1pt per 2 catches) and lineups: QB/RB (2)/WR(2)/TE/ WR/TE(1)/K/DST

that work for everyone?

08-09-2009, 02:52 PM
Heres a better league on Yahoo (Looks like they do have free stat tracker so that works, since we can customize league)

If you would prefer 1 FLEX (ALL) instead of the WR/TE position I will change it, that's usually how I play anyway. Let me know guys.

Please review it and make sure it's ok. I wasn't sure what the WAIVER WIRE stuff was can someone explain it to me? I want it to be based off of rankings but each time someone picks they get dropped back into waivers etc. I dont want waivers available before wednesday.

Again, I think we should get all the players on board before we decide on any rules.

For instance, I'm more a fan of simple rule-sets... mostly yardage, TDs, etc. Not a huge fan of receptions and massive points for defenses, but that's just me.

Let's fill the league, then iron out the minutia.

I think Yahoo might be a good call, though. Don't forget to make the league private (if you didn't already) so we don't have any slobs from Chiefs Planet joining us.

Team names same as our orangemane handles? I think that would be good.

Draft date and time to be negotiated when everyone has joined, I hope. Can't make the draft date setup right now (sat aug29th 1pm - i have another draft at that time)

underrated29
08-09-2009, 03:24 PM
i typed in the league id and pass and got password is not correct, league is not available.

Why am i retarded? how do i get around it.




Here is what i am used to in FF.
Must draft only
2qb,4rb,5wr,2te,2k,2d

start qb,2rb,3wr,te,k,d- the rest sits on bench.

tds are all 6pts, and 1pt 25 yards rush/rec (not combineable). return yards on D, gets points as do score, sacks,ints,fumbles.

Waiver wire is First come first served.


I am open to anything, never done a ppr, but it sounds like fun. I do think though as a suggestion from me that starting 2 qbs might not be as good imo.

k signed up rules look pretty good.



How long does an online draft take? Or is everyone here in Denver, can we make it a live draft.


Reason i ask is 8/29 at 4:30pm i have my hockey playoff game,actually its for the stanley cup. I cant miss it. 8/22 is the only other day i cant do, as i am drafting in my other league. However, if we can do a live draft i can get someone to fill in for me perhaps.

Doggcow
08-09-2009, 03:35 PM
Drafts take like 2.5-3.5 hours.

I dont live in Denver, but if you guys wanted to do it live I could phone in picks and follow by hand.

Also, draft is going to be negotiated it looks like, I just threw that up there

If it goes that quick, i can still do 8/29 if we need, but we have to do it so i can be done by 4:30mts...

Is it a 10 team league? Since everyone is so spread out I suggest having prize money for just the top 3 or 4 finishers, with maybe a little something for the regular season champ. It's gonna be real annoying to mail checks out to everyone at the end. Let's keep it simple.

My other money leagues pay out like this:

Yeah, we can do a waiver fee, but collecting is gonna be troublesome from my experience. Why don't you just have free pickups but set a waiver limit. How about...16 waiver moves? That's one a week.

I agree that it would be hard to collect.

16 is pretty light, though.

I wonder if we should make it $60 and do unlimited add/drops, but keep roster limits reasonable so we can't have people hoarding players?

Is a 5 player bench ok? Thats what I usually go with, it seems like just enough not too much but not too few. Maybe 4 spots at the minimum.

underrated29
08-09-2009, 05:30 PM
I also like the waiver fee idea. Mine for reference is $2 drop add $5 trades. But i am open.

Or maybe we can all throw down like an extra $16 for the year for drop add and put a cap on a weekly limit.

question with that. are we going to have enough bench players that we do not have to drop add each week. Or is the bench only 3-5 deep pretty much forcing us to do drop adds frequently.

I think that might help determine $$$ and cap number of pickups

Does the draft have to be on the weekend of August 29th? Sounds like we have a few conflicts on Saturday, and on Sunday night we'll all be booing Cutler (Bears/Broncos preseason game). Sunday night Sept 6th or even Labor Day works better for me, plus all the preseason games will be done by then (in case any players get injured the last week)

Another option: does yahoo support a "slow" draft? I'm in one league like that now where each team has 6 hours to make their pick. We usually get in two or three rounds a day (most times owners don't take the full 6 hours) and the draft takes about a week to complete.

I suggested that day, as well. (Labor Day Monday.) Seems like baring vacation, it's a safe bet that most people would be around and off work.

But to me maybe we should see how the first year works then maybe the next year or something keep it.------if everyone is good for keeper, i am too, just being cautious since i dont know many of you.

eewww. That sucks. Cant we just have someone draw names out of a hat or something. Yeah we have to trust them, but i would rather have a draft strategy ahead of time then worry about if someone is honest or not.

Really i dont care where i am at in the draft, but i would like a week or so ahead of time notice.....OF course if all possible and if everyone is in agreement.

Yahoo does the draft order randomly before the draft, I don't think it's possible to change that.

Dogg, I think all of the scoring is great right where it is. My vote is to leave it alone.

I could do a keeper, but it looks like that's going by the wayside, so no big whoop.

If he jumps in, is that our 12? Can we start kicking rules around, then?

What about payment... haven't scanned. We should have JMC give his Paypal info, etc. (Private messages, I suppose.)

I would just have missing be our 12th. Your brother has not signed up yet and missing is ready. First come, first serve. At any rate, this is an OM league. Does your brother even have an account?

PLUS, Missing and I have fought side by side in many a Survivor battle. SO, my vote is definitely with Missingnumber7.

Just my .02.

Technically you were the last person, I don't know why you're going to be mad about it.

I was asking people to PM me, JMC asked everyone to PM me and everyone did except you and then I was told to move on and put Kaylore in.

Doggcow,

Just throwing it out there... no offense, but I'd also be on board with those who would prefer to keep this a Mane-only league. You know, for people that have been here for a while, have a few hundred posts, etc.

I'm fine either way, but it just seems like it would be more fun that way.

I like this idea, too. Mane only league. I'm ok if you want your brother in the league (commish has some priviledges) but otherwise keep it as a Mane league.

JCMElway
08-14-2009, 07:34 AM
Eh, we're all in now, he's a Bronc fan, and we already pissed missing off and there's no getting him back now if we could. So, let's move forward. Missing is a grown man and he'll find another league. I was all for having MN7 here, but what's done is done and I think Missing would agree.

Dogg, I've run these kinds of things before, and you're usually not going to be able to be the good guy for everyone. **shrugs**

08-14-2009, 09:35 AM
Nah, were cool...lots of leagues out there...just something about playing with maners that makes fantasy more fun. I think I talked a bunch of guys in the office to do a league...looking about 16 team...never done one that big before.

Hey missing #7 is that other guy who is doing the $100 buy in league is for real, i will join his league and you can take my slot.

I would rather be in a higher paying league- no offense to you guys. I am just a greedy bastard.

Only if that other guys league will let me in and Missing7 is willing to take my place here.

I am not going to screw you guys over. I comitted here first, but if 7 wants my spot and i can get in that other guys league then it seems like a win win for everyone.


Just dont give up my spot yet. First got to see about this other guy and make sure 7 is cool too.

I'm not trying to screw everyone by having my bro in. I just initially formed this league so we would have one since ours fell through this year.

Popps
08-14-2009, 06:01 PM
Underrated. No, I wasn't saying that. I just meant that I thought it would be best if the league was comprised of regular posters, which you are.

But, I understand that Doggcow hoped to have his brother in from the get-go. So, whatever is fine with me. Someone PM me when this is all sorted out. I'm good to go.

Ok who is holding the money btw? I think someone in denver would be best since there are most people there.

Also LET ME KNOW ABOUT DRAFT TIMES AND DATE GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I vote for Labor Day afternoon draft (sept 7th). Any time on labor day works for me. I think we should set the draft date and time first before anything else.

underrated29
08-16-2009, 09:23 AM
well still nothing from that other guy so it looks like i will be staying here in this league.


For draft I leave town sep 7-20. I will be able to update my roster but i wont be able to get 3-5 hours strait as i will be on a cruise. So i would vote against that day.

The only other day thats a complete no go for me is 8/22. I have my last playoff game in hockey on the 8/29 but its afternoon and i can always get someone to take over for me while i play if needed.

JCMElway
08-16-2009, 10:09 AM
How about the time when it is set for now? It's Aug the 29th at 7 PM. That sounds good to me.

And if we want to have me hold the money I've already posted my info on the fantasy site.

titan
08-16-2009, 01:02 PM
any of these times should work for me:
8/29 evening (7 pm ok)
9/5 evening
9/6 afternoon or evening
9/7 anytime
most weeknights should work for me, too

bad times for me:
8/29 morning or afternoon (have a draft that day)
8/30 broncos-bears that night got tickets
9/5 morning or afternoon

Doggcow
08-16-2009, 01:43 PM
It looks like it will need to be before labor day. Is there anyone that CANT make it on the 29th how it is set now? Or the 29th in general (we might be able to move it around on that day.)

I'm not going to make anyone put up $50 for an autodrafted team

My last playoff game for the stanley cup is approx at 6pm mst on the 29th. So it wont work for me. However, i am 95% sure i can get someone to draft for me until i am done.

So essentailly- it will work for me, just not me personally. If we are going to do this date and time can we firm it up as soon as possible so i can make arrangements for someone to pick for me until i get done with my game.
