JMC, I just created an "official" high stakes league thread in the fantasy football forum.

Want to put your address in there for the $? I can send mine now. Also, we should maybe announce anything official in that thread as far as dates, etc.

Look on the fantasy site page on Yahoo. My name and address are there. I didn't want to post that info on the main forum. I love all you guys and gals, but who knows what some Chef or Faid trolls are capable of?

Ok so it looks like there was some confusion about the buy in, I was fairly sure everyone was ok with $50. I don't mind doing $60, but up to everyone.

JCMElway
08-16-2009, 09:47 PM
Yeah, I thought we were throwing in an extra $10 for pre-payment on waiver picks, a flat fee if you will.

Well then it's no different for anyone and everyone may as well just go waiver crazy. The reason I was going for a Pay-Per-Waiver type method is you actually have to think about your waiver moves more and plan ahead.

08-17-2009, 09:54 AM
ok so what is the total amount we are sending?



I dont really want to be sending $1 checks every couple weeks for waiver moves. Id rather just get it out of the way. Or can we just pay at the end.



** You guys can just deduct it from my winnings**
:wave:

Why not just have a set # of waiver moves for the season (like one a week) and not charge for them?

JCMElway
08-17-2009, 10:14 PM
I believe we are going to have a set number of waiver moves. I thought the amount was 16. True dogg?

We can do 50 or 60, whatever Dogg decides.

Hey does someone want to PM or whatever Missin#7 see if he wants to take myplace in this league.

It would work out better for the draft and then he gets in. I cant find him anywhere otherwise i would tell him.



***edit i did find him and send him a PM- hopefully he gets back in time. If not i am still in this league and will send out the $$ as soon as i hear from missin7

underrated29
08-19-2009, 01:38 PM
Ok talked to 7. he is already in another league now. So looks like i will be staying unless we have someone on the wait list.


Bad news for you guys. Because i am gonna win.:strong:

ok, My last hockey playoff game, for the Stanley Cup is the 29th at 5:30pm....

So i have made arrangements for my dad to draft for me until my game is over. I might not be able to draft at all.


So no making fun of the guys my dad drafts, it wasnt me. I am making a rankings list as we speak for him, but that only goes so far......

I have faith.

Doggcow

Well I was thinking $1 per waiver move and people WIN $2.50 for every W they get. Usually it's about even in the end and only a few people owe much more (which we will have to go on honor and they pay at the end of the season) and keeps the waivers not flipping like crazy.

I dont really care either way, thats just how I've we normally done it and it worked great.

I think we should keep it at a $50 league though since everyone agreed to that initially.

Please please please tell me if you can't make the draft.

Oh and get those checks in ASAP (I'll be mailing mine/Bros on friday, dont know how long it takes to get there though from WA)

Would anyone mind emailing/PMing everyone about the draft to make sure they're still in? (I'm driving to Seattle today after work and will be pretty tied up until Sunday night so if anyone else could do it, it would make my life a lot easier)

titan
08-20-2009, 12:33 PM
As long as the draft time is set at 6 pm Aug 29th I'll send in my check. If the draft time is still negotiable then let's set that first (I can't make an afternoon draft that day, and I saw on the main board one owner preferred an afternoon draft)

That would be best imo. i might not be able to finish the draft, but atleast i wont have my dad making all my picks.

chaz

I suggested an afternoon draft, but I'm definitely flexible. I just would prefer not spending a Saturday night on the computer, but if that's what works for everyone else that's cool with me.

JCMElway
08-20-2009, 10:12 PM
Hey Chaz, I can't do an afternoon draft, I'll be working.

Who were the Genetic Supermen? They just left the league. We need one more player now.

I had a family event come up on draft night so I have dropped out of the league. My spot is open for anyone wanting in the league.

so are we just rolling with 10 teams now?

JCMElway

Yeah, unless two people want to step up and join, it's ten teams.

underrated29
08-23-2009, 03:09 PM
alright guys we have a problem....

I won my game so i will be playing hockey at time of the draft. And my dad who was supposed to cover me, just sold his house and is closing this saturday....

I dont know what to do or what you guys want me to do. If we can move the draft up or back to sunday. Or i can drop out, but i dont want to screw you guys over.....

Let me know whats best, but for now i cant draft.

chaz
08-23-2009, 06:31 PM
could we do sunday afternoon? or anytime sunday?

You can set up a priority drafting list on yahoo before the draft. Yahoo will automatically draft your team and get you all of the roster spots you need. If you put some time and thought into the auto list you will get most of the players you want.

Otherwise, I'd track down a buddy and call in a favor from him.

JCMElway
08-23-2009, 06:45 PM
I could switch to Sunday evening beginning at 5 PM CST.

I am doing everything i can... Unfortunately most of my friends play hockey with me......

I dont want to be a selfish bastage, but forgive me guys if i dont do the auto draft thing. $50 might not be much to most, but its a lot to me. And i want to ensure that i am doing the best i can with my investment.

I hate to say it, but if i cant get me a proxy i am going to have to bow out. Still searching for someone. If not that other guy is doing that league with a draft on sunday, dont know if there is still room......but its better to draft than not at all ( i mean physically yourself).

JCMElway
08-24-2009, 03:51 PM
Like I say, if folks want to switch to Sunday after the Bears game that would be fine with me. Or the following Sunday.

Thoughts?

you guys already know where i stand. Sundays ftw.

underrated29
08-25-2009, 11:15 AM
any updates gents? I feel so bad. Its like a catch 22 for me.

If i leave you guys, then you got 9 teams which blows. But if i stay and you move the draft then it screws over everyone else just because of my schedule.

I do feel terrible bout this, but i think i am going to back out. I will give it one more day (wednesday) to find someone to draft for me until i am done.

Sunday works. Everyone good with that?

What time?

JCMElway
08-25-2009, 04:43 PM
I had my dates turned around, and on Saturday the 6th I have another draft. Sorry all. Does Saturday the 5th work for everyone, say 6 PM MST?

underrated29
08-25-2009, 04:49 PM
saturday the 5th is good. Sunday the 6th i have another draft. And monday the 7th i am out of town for a long while......still be able to update roster, but computer access is beyond limited.

And we need one more guy in the league.

Sorry I've been AWOL. Just replied to your mail. Hit me back and I'll paypal. Did we decide on $55?

I guess the consensus was $50, but if you paypal me try and see what the charge is for using paypal. In my experience, the guy receiving the $ gets charged for it. If you choose to use paypal, you gotta make sure the extra $ is included.

I think if it's a transaction or you use a debit card, there is a fee.

But, if you send as a gift from your own account (linked to account or money that was in your paypal account) ... it's free.

JMC... PM me to confirm your address, please.

Also, I think we should post a definitive scoring breakdown on this thread to make sure there are no objections. (As well as a prize breakdown.)

Or, we could do it at the site.

JCMElway
09-03-2009, 02:18 AM
The scoring breakdown is available in the settings area on the yahoo league page. Prize breakdown....

How about:

1st: $275
2nd: $175
3rd: $100

And we can give the regular season total points champion $50. (If we don't like a reg season points champ we can give the $50 to 4th place in the playoffs.) I've done this system in the past and it works pretty well. Thoughts?

BTW, we are going to have a 6 team playoff with the top two seeds getting byes in the first week of the playoffs. Playoff weeks are weeks 14-16.

No-one has objected to the current system so I think that will stay as is.

The points SHOULD rack up as 1 per 2 catches so it is PPR, but I don't know for sure as I haven't used Yahoo before. Other than that it's fairly standard

Definitely.

All we have to do is assign everyone a number and figure out a way to get one random number generated.

Is assigning a draft order an option on Yahoo?

Hey all, I set the max moves for drop/adds at 20. This will keep guys from having rotating rosters. It's still more that a move a week. Does that seem fair to everyone?

I will zero out all roster moves before kick on Thursday.

Why did you turn on fractional points and nerf the **** out of defenses? Wow, you really gimped defenses something fierce.

I turned on fractional points because we have .5 ppr. This way teams will get credit for what they actually do without rounding.

Take off the fractional points and change MFG 50 to -1, I think its a huge advantage if people with long range kickers arnt penalized for missing long range fg's, should be -1 across the board imo especially since a 50 yarder is worth about a td.

Doggcow
09-05-2009, 11:48 PM
Ok whatever, I guess fractional points can stay...

I don't really care. However I do think its funny when a guy loses 2 yards on a carry and the guy loses a point and the game because of it.

On field goals, i could care less one way or another.

But i am wondering how many 50 yard field goals does a kicker kick each year? Not to many i am guessing and making them is even more rare an occasion.

Mason Crosby- huge leg- IIRC had only like 5 or 6 all year last year. That is off memmory but it doesnt happen all that often.

Once again though, field goals, i dont care.

JCMElway
09-05-2009, 11:52 PM
I killed fractional, looked a bit TOO precise. Let's take a vote on the -1 for over 50, I disagree with you there. I kept it for the rest of the FGs, but penalizing a K for a tough attempt seems weak to me.

Will everyone please chime in on this? Should K get a -1 for a missed attempt over 50?

Doggcow

Keep the fractional points I guess, just in case it wont rack up Points Per Reception on the non fractional points.

JCMElway
09-06-2009, 12:02 AM
yeah, if a guy has 5 receptions in a game, he would get 3 points. 4 receptions would get him 2, and 6 receptions would get him 3.

Then 7 receptions would round up to 4 points. Does that work or do we want to be more precise about it?

Wait ****.

I was thinking about it today, if we had fractional points off would EVERYTHING round up? E.g. 6 rushing yards = 1 point? Lets just go with fractional I think...

JCMElway
09-08-2009, 09:07 AM
No it wouldn't. It only goes to a point when 10 yards rushing is achieved.

"By choosing to allow fractional yardage points, all players receive fractional points for every yard gained. So if your league awards one point for every 20 rushing yards, you would receive 1/20 of a point for each yard gained.

If you set this option to no, your players will only receive one point at every 20 yards, and nothing in between. So, a player rushing for 0-19 yards would receive no points, a player rushing for 20-39 yards would receive one point, a player rushing for 40-59 yards would receive two points, etc.

If you wish to award fractional points for a specific scoring category, simply enter a fractional number as the point modifier for that category."

Doggcow
09-08-2009, 10:00 AM
So can we just set it as .5 points per reception then and turn on fractional points just for that?

underrated29
09-08-2009, 10:54 AM
i say we go fractional for receptions

and

1 pt 10 yards rushing. No fractionals here.

So if my guy rushes for 19 yards i only get 1 pt. If he gets 20 yards then i get 2 pts.


I like that best.

I'm not trying to change the scoring, just trying to get it to what it was aimed at before the draft. The only thing I've been trying to fix is the PPR which everyone knew about before the draft, whether its fractional or not I don't think affects how someone would draft.

I told you, I DO NOT PUT TRADE OFFERS THROUGH. It is up to a league vote. If the league does not reject the trade it goes through when yahoo says it does. It may take longer than it's supposed to, but it goes through. I shortened the period to one day so it goes faster, but I do not have any say whatsoever on if trades are accepted or not.

As for the short benches it was originally set up with only 14 rounds and I didn't catch that. But you can have 16 players on the team if you set it up that way pre-draft. However, I think it adds a bit of strategy to have a small bench, so I don't mind it so much.

I like Yahoo, but we can put it up to a league vote, no big whoop.

Good question--I had a claim in for Coffee too--but figured I would not get him due to the waiver priority order--did you get another player that was given a higher waiver priority than Garcon?

Nah man. I didnt get anything. Those were the only two claims i put in.

And I did it yesterday.

I was dropping rashard for coffee and galloway for garcon.

Nothing transpired.



I knew i might not be tops on the waiver list, but both guys coffee and garcon went to the same team and id happened today- not yesterday.


Its not a huge deal, but i wanted one or both, but its crazy to me that i didnt get either and it was yesterday and they both went to the same team.



oh-well. Lets you and i hope that coffee goes down next week or something since we didnt get him...MWAHAHAHA

The waivers did scroll like theyre supposed to (as you can see everyone that had claims in got moves before mine for garcon) I'm not sure what went wrong with yours, are you sure you hit process waiver like 5 times that it asked? Was it pending at the top of your "My Team" page?

No I'm saying all players *SHOULD* be FA's and instantly acquirable weds/thurs/fri/sat, and waivers are only on Sunday (starting at 9am) until tuesday night (weds morning) when they clear. I think it said 6:44 am they cleared?

Hey all, I have reset the waiver priority list as it did not accurately reflect what the order should be. If you pick a player up, you move to the bottom of the list. If you have made no pickups, you are at the top of the waiver list. If Yahoo does not keep this correctly in the future, I will keep making sure ours is correct.

I set it up to reset each week, that way the guys that are 5-0 cant just sit on their waiver and jack the one good guy that pops up on waivers mid way through the season.

The whole point of the Waiver LIMITS was to prevent people for picking up too many guys, now it's a double whammy...

Seriously though, this is like the 3rd time the rules have changed AFTER THE DRAFT, reguardless of what you wanted to do, everyone was fine with it BEFORE THE DRAFT.

Btw everyone DID go to the bottom each week as the waivers rolled, but then through... and then the priority reset each week, you made it not reset each week...

Look, the waivers need to be reset when someone makes a pickup. When you make a pickup, you go to the bottom of the priority list. That's not a change in the rules. I was simply resetting the list BECAUSE SOMEONE COMPLAINED THE WAIVERS WERE NOT WORKING CORRECTLY. I noted their complaint and posted it on both boards.

Hey all, I just realized that I made a mistake. I had assumed that the waivers were being done on a rolling basis pre-draft. The waivers are currently set on yahoo, however, to the waiver list being set up according to the standings (last place has best waiver priority.) I was wondering why the list wasn't resetting! Duh.

So, I need everyone to put their two cents in and say how you'd like waivers to be done. I can reset the waivers every Tuesday and Thursday to reflect a rolling list (i.e. you make a pickup and go to the bottom of the priority list,) or we can go with worst record gets waiver priority. Please PM, email, or put your vote on this thread.

Just so everyone knows, I'm voting for the rolling list.

my vote is

1-12. 1 being last place, 12 being first place. After 1 has picked he now moves to 13 for the day. If 12 doesnt make any selections that day then 13 gets to go again.

so that would be rolling, and my vote.

I only know the rolling version. I dont know the other version. So i voted rolling.

I dont do that many drop adds anyways so for the most part i am impartial.
I think i have done 1-2. I just made one today or yesterday for a total of three. But i dropped a backup for another backup so its not like i got any good players out of it.

What i do think is unfair is not being to make any claims whatsoever. Everyone should get a shot at FA. Obviously the best records should go last. But they should still get a chance to put in a claim before poeple below them make a second claim. However, if the teams with highest records dont take their shot then too bad they get moved back down the list.


How does the other version work out? The poeple with the lowest records get to make as many claims as they want and when they are done the people with the higher records can pick up the scraps?

It's supposed to change based on W-L record, so the rich dont keep getting richer because they can sit on their 5-0 team and wait for a RB to go down and snag his backup and make their teams even better.

It scrolls through on Weds morning, 12-1, then starts over 12-1 again. During the week THERE ARE NO WAIVERS, everyone is a FA. It was scrolling perfectly fine except for that one instance, which, without being able to see what he actually set up I can't tell you why his didn't go through.
