I'm still awaiting word from TJ on whether he'd be okay with an OM Fantasy Football league again. In the past we've had great participation and it has been VERY competitive. I've played a lot of FF and the OM leagues were always the most fun due to the knowledeable fans we have on board.

In the past we have had leagues with 24 participants. Generally what we do is split it into two conferences with each conference having 12 teams and 3 divisions. Each conference (12 teams) selects from the entire league.

Playoffs are played amongst each conference with a final championship played with the winners of each conference. The championship is scheduled in week 16 to avoid week 17 player preservation.

The cost in the past has been $50 (per player) which pays for the league fees and then some incredible winning potential each week. The winner of the Championship received an authentic Broncos jersey of their choice (or a gift cert to the Broncos store to cover an authentic jersey... $235 or whatever it is now).

So, if TJ is okay with it I would help organize but would need at least one co-commish as I have to travel on occassion for work.
UPDATE!!! TJ has granted permission to host an OM FFL!!! Apa has offered to assist so he and I will handle the commissioner responsibilities. We still need more Playa's. If the $50 is your main obstacle let me say that there are several ways to recoup a considerable amount (if not all of) your entry fees. There will be weekly high point winners, conference winners, and several other potential bonuses.

I'll post a poll shortly to gauge interest and determine if we, a) have enough to form one conference, and b) have enough to form two conferences (24 particpants). Should we have more than 24 that are wanting to particpate it will come down to SCD dates (that would be join on dates). Sorry to you new comers that I know would be great assets to the league and provide some great competition, but RHIP baby!

I'd also like to add that the $50 would be an upfront fee. No pay no play.

And Alex I would be willing to be co-commish. I travel for work too but I can still get online while on business trips.

So I just took a look at it HAT... PERFECT!!! Seriously, that will really help to mitigate the one concern I had regarding a FFL with $$$ potential.

Like I said before, these leagues have been extremely fun in the past and I look forward to doing it again. So far we haven't got enough participants to have even a single 10 or 12 team league. Hopefully the interest will pick up more and more in the coming days.

It appears that Apa and I will be the Co-Commish's.

TJ has a lot going on so he will not be able to help or assist but he gave me the go-ahead and with the secure $$$ site I think he is more comfortable than ever with the OM having FF again!!!

Broncoman13
08-14-2010, 02:41 PM
Alright, get the word out. The OM is back and rolling!

The site that HAT suggested will allow you to pay in a number of different ways including e-check/Visa/MC/etc.

If we only get 10-12, can we still run a league???

theAPAOps5
08-15-2010, 08:54 AM
I am sure we can do one league but I would want to cap it at 12 as after that you get crap for players. Or in other words you can only draft a CBF1 team.

Broncoman13
08-15-2010, 09:19 AM
If we only get 10-12, can we still run a league???

No doubt! We won't have a lot of the weekly prizes, but we'll still have a league.

The prizes in a 10 team league would amount to an Authentic Jersey for the champion, a $75 Prepaid Visa Card for 2nd place, and a $25 Prepaid Visa Card for 3rd place.

If we have 12 teams, we'll have enough to do weekly high score winners.

20 team, we'll have enough to do all of the above plus division winners!

I think we'll be able to drum up some interest tonight during the Broncos game.

I don't think the $50 is pricing us out for too many on the OM, or is it?

Gotta figure out how many players we'll have so we can determine if we need to have a deluxe league (two conferences with the same players available for each conference) or if we only need regular league services for a 10-12 team league. I'm hoping we can get a bunch more to show up and play b/c it has been fun in the past, but regardless I think we'll have a good competitive league with just the bunch of that posted on this thread.

Plan on doing the league on MyFantasyLeague.com.

If we do a jersey prize it will have to be 50... W/10-12 teams. If we get 20-24 teams, we can drop down a bit and still have some great prizes!

Plus, why the hell is the RB still the focus of FF ??? RB's have been irrelevant to titles since TD retired from the Broncos. So shy does FF reward a dime a dozen position with the shortest career in the NFL, versus the QB with the longest average career for skill positions?

I think we should make our league much more 2010 relevant and make the QB's the focus of the league. Just my $.02 ;D

Rep for the TD love! HAT recommended a vault to hold the money so we can avoid your situation in the future. Glad to have your easy money... I mean have you play! ;)

I kept Knowshon and AJ. Too many big names already off the board. Would have liked to keep Beanie and Knowshon and draft AJ with my first...too risky tho.

Nice. That should cover it. Am guessing we will have one or two that back out. So 20 total is pretty ideal. If we have 22 that truly plan on playing, we will need two more to even everything out.

So how would a Sunday evening work for everyone? If not Sunday then what about Monday? Thinking the 29th or 30th.

That would give us a week to collect owner's fees and prepare accordingly. It will probably be best to do two separate drafts for the two conferences. One on Sunday and one on Monday. Both would be in the evening around 1800 MST.

Please let me know if that works for everyone, which day would be better for you personnaly, and if you can have the $50 in by then.

Those days look good for me as long as its a later eastern time start.

Seriously though, about the rules. I really want to play in a QB WR dominated league and not be drafting Cedric Benson in the first round. Seriously, who wants Benson as their top pick? Not me.

How about we play PPR and QB full 6 points for TD league? I still think FF is in the dark ages. RB's basically suck and get way too much FF coverage.

We will figure something out Med. Perhaps go with QBs receiving points for
10 yards passing rather than the traditional 25. Or we could just go heavy on bonuses for QBs where they receive higher points than RBs or WRs for the 300 yard passing games.

But really, in the end most of the QBs have scored better than most of the RBs with the traditional scoring system. In the end, you end up with a pretty good balance of RBs, QBs and WRs drafted in the first round. It's not like the old days where it was 10 RBs and TO didn't got until about three pix into the 2nd round.

But I do get your point that with RB corps being the norm across the NFL now, finding a bellcow back is kind of difficult... And for that reason, I would consider drafting Benson.

Alright, if everyone could PM me and Apaops their names and email addresses I will open an account on the Vault site HAT provided and will get your information loaded so they can send you an "eBill" with the information on how to pay for your owner's fees. The site looks like it will take any major credit card or debit card with a Visa/MC logo. Not for sure, but it looks like you can also use a service similar to paypal.

It is necessary for everyone to have their league dues in prior to the draft. If for some reason you can't get them in, I need to speak with you personally so we can discuss.

Apa, I'll send you the info as soon as I have it set up.

1pt per 2 receptions, 1pt per 30 passing yards, all TD's 6 (Balances out drew brees and rodgers a little since they're always posting 300+yd games)

I can do DAY or NIGHT on Sunday. Nothing after 2pm PST(if day) or Before 530PST (if night)

I cant overlap, so I'd be able to trade one for the other.

.



I like these rules. I also like zero negative points for defense or missed FG over 50 yards..


Return yards- do we go by defense gets the return yards or specific player? I vote defense and maybe 1 pt per 20 or so...Usually you dont get too many return yards..





DRAFT- I can not do sunday unless it is late late late, like 8:30 at the earliest. Monday is good after 5pm mtn time. Pretty much I am good anytime except sunday. Have my big money league draft then, cant miss that one.


I just registered my team- went with same name as last year since I see some familiar faces....

How does the waiver wire work? Is it a free for all, or go by record last place get first pick? Roster positions?

Broncoman13
08-23-2010, 12:24 PM
I don't think we will be changing the scoring for QBs all that much. There is draft stategy involved and if you even out the guys you mentioned there is no point in selecting them early.

What I will do to help offset all of the RB by commitee issues is put some extra scoring potential in for RBs. Points per reception, 50, 100, 150 yard bonuses, etc.

Need everyone to register and pay, may have to push the draft back to the last week of the preseason if we don't get everyone paid up by the weekend.

I'm ready to register and transfer the money, But I really need to know when the draft is schedulled...
I read that some have a problem with Sunday night (+the Broncos game is Sunday at 8:00pm est) But I'm not available on Mondy (Till after 10:45pm est)
Next weekend might be better for most (?) but I feel a date must be set...

I am waiting to get in touch with Apa to discuss, but I do agree that Sunday Night is a no go. Everyone will be distracted, if they can even make it to a computer to draft. I think the Monday evening draft is good. The following weekend is also a good option. Perhaps we would be better off drafting Sunday and Monday of the following week? That would give us a little more time to collect league fees and ensure we have the full set of owners. We have to have at least 20 at this point (There are 12 signed up right now and I'm pretty sure Philly, CBF1 and Med will sign up in the next day or two). So 15 right now. Too big for a single league and too small for a two conference league.


So let me discuss with Nick and we'll see what dates are the best. I wonder what everyone's availability is like during the weekdays (evening)?

I think next weekend will be better. In that there won't be a game it will allow people to plan a little more and it will be after the third week where starters play the most and if there is some freak injury to a good player someone doesn't get screwed coming out of the gate.

Just my opinion!

You two need to "sit" together and just set a date and time.
Next weekend will 'most likely' work for me,depends on exact day and time, but at least I'll know for sure if I'm in or out. IMO, it will speed the process...

Thanks for the advice, we will make sure we "sit" together.....

This is the first I heard of a change in date but it makes sense with the game on Sunday. I am playing phone tag with Bman right now but we will get it figured out sooner rather than later.

Yeah, we have too many people that will miss Sunday due to the game. Plus it makes sense to wait until we have a full set of committments to schedule the draft.

You want to "sit" at my place or yours? ;D

I've actually played in a 16 team league for the last few years...Separates the men from the boys!


Hopefully we get 24 though b/c I like 12 teams over 10.

I can do mid-week evening drafts after 6pm PST with a little notice but would prefer Sunday or Monday.

Alright, I think Nick and I have agreed to hold the drafts on Sunday Sept 5th and Monday Sept 6th. The drafts will be held at 6:30 MST. I know 5:30 is a little early for the west coast folks and 8:30 is borderline for the east coast folks, but that is really the best time to accomodate both regions.

We are still awaiting several people to sign up. Right now we have 13 signed up to the League safe vault (5 payments still not received, one pending).

Still waiting to hear from several that have yet to respond to their invites.

There is still room available if anybody else wants to join in!

We are looking to have two conferences of 10 to 12 in each conference. The two conference winners will play for an authentic jersey (of their choice). There will be tons of other prizes as well. Usually we do $10 every week to the high point scorer. Buy in is $45 plus a small handling fee. Would love to have you again!

BMan,

From the league safe site:

ALCON, We are up to $315 now! The FFL site costs $179.99. I've already begun to set up the league but am waiting to get some more owners to pay before purchasing the league. I will wait until we have at least 10 players to purchase which will ensure we have at least enough $$$ to pay for the site and provide the top prize (authentic jersey!) to the winner. 10 players will give us at least enough to purchase the league and provide that top prize. The additional 10-14 players will give us the ability to do weekly prizes and other performance prizes! Looking forward to a great season! GO BRONCOS!!! Commish Alex (BMan13)

What's the reasoning behind using a pay site to manage the league? Why not espn, cbs, yahoo, etc. (I know they each have their issues but free is free?)

$180 bucks is 4 whole entries. I'm in either way but was just curious as to why take that much out of the prize pool?

theAPAOps5
08-25-2010, 10:26 PM
You addressed this to Bman but I am co-commish so I am going to reply.

You want to know why we are using that site? Because that is how the past OM league has been set up and the bylaws and rules are already in place. At this point its too late to change and truthfully we wouldn't consider anything else.

Remember BMan and myself have real jobs AND families. This set up makes it easier to run the league in which you are ENJOYING. So that $180 to me is the fee that makes this league possible while still giving out some great prizes.

We could scrap the league entirely. It would be easier that way because we wouldn't have to hear the b****ing and moaning about when the draft is and why we haven't "sat" together to get everything perfect for the users. Trust me its easier to return the money than have people complain about how we run the league.

BMan and myself don't stand to gain anything from this league other than to have a good time. We aren't getting any kind of fee to organize this and we aren't guaranteed any kind of winnings. We volunteered to run this league because we thought it would be fun.

No it wasn't directed at you entirely, you just were the last to post questioning how we ran the league and it was enough.

My basic point is don't question how we run the league. We are taking the time to set this up to make it fun for everyone. You are only paying $46.00 to play and will have a good chance at winning most that back.

With the complaining about when the draft and how we were running the league I just got fed up and unleashed using your post. So I do apologize for pretty much unleashing on you!

No worries HAT, Nick and I have both been getting our asses kicked with work and then trying to make time to work on the site. The biggest issue is the deluxe league. Having two conferences that are within the same league is why is cost so much more and Myfantasyleague is the easiest site to set up for our kind of league. The deluxe league allows both conferences to draft from the entire NFL Roster so you don't have 20-24 teams picking the same players... you'd end up with Brandon Stokley as your #2 and Daniel Graham as your TE in a league that big.

So your question is fine, but there was some thought put into it and I'm posting the $$$ status to be transparent and in the spirit of disclosure, so that everyone knows where their money is going.

Oh, and as far as me and Nick not getting anything out of this, I full expect that we will be taking the left over $4.45 and buying a couple cups of coffee... though at today's rates we'll probably have to bring some money to the table for that as well! ;D

Seriously, no worries on the questions and I am fine answering them here in the open. The $180 would be great to put towards prizes, but our overall FFL experience would suffer trying to do it through another site and the other sites that do have deluxe type leagues charge nearly the same, maybe $20-30 less.

Rather than looking at is as 4 owners worth of entry fees are going toward the site, think of it as a pct of everyone's entry fee is going toward the site. Also keep in mind, you get what you pay for. Myfantasyleague is a great site for hosting leagues and it makes for a lot of fun. We can even play Fantasy Survivor for a $20 prize or something. In fact, we may just do that... when we get the full 24 owners.

Thanks...That's pretty much what I figured. On ESPN or what not you would need to have 2 separate leagues play to winner and then do final game rosters via email and grade the 'real' championship game by hand.

He'll get over it, legit question and I had a little sticker shock when I first saw the price as well. I was assuming it would be around $120. But to have it the same way Pez and Med had it a few years ago, it is a necessary evil. Plus like you said, the rules and bylaws were pretty much already set up as well as the layout. We'll make some minor changes to the bylaws, and scoring system, but for the most part it's already complete.

Oh I am chill especially with Football around the corner I was just surprised at how many people were calling out the league and when we were drafting because we hadn't come up with an immediate schedule. So when I saw your post about the fees I just popped off! Again sorry about that!

I can start sending invites now, just can transfer the full league from Leaguesafe to MFL until I have all 24 members email addresses. I'll start sending out more invites to the actual site very soon. Need to do some league votes on some important scoring options.

1). QB scoring- 4 points or 6 points per TD.
QB passing- 1 point per 25 yds or 50 yds.

2 RBs- Would like to add something to help offset all of the RB by committee backs. How does points per reception sound?

QB: 4/TD with 1/25yds is my preference but if you do 6/TD you should definitely bump the yardage down to 1/50yds.

PPR gets my vote also.

Why do people want QB's devalued ??? Seriously, RB's are no longer a premier position in NFL football and really have not been relevant since TD put up 2000 to get DEN to the SB. Why do you want to value Cedric Benson over Tony Romo?

I just guest drafted in a league where The Backup QB could be your flex player. Now, that was a crazy draft. 14 QB's drafted in the first 2 rounds with standard scoring rules. At least QB's were being drafted ahead of rookie RB's ;D

Anyway, I like QB's getting the full 6 points they get in a game for TD's and 1 point per 25 yards with Bonuses for 300 yards and 3 TD passes in a game. I think its stupid QB's get penalized for throwing TD passes in FF. Or, how about everyone gets 4 points per TD scored ???

Broncoman13

There will be 6 playoff spots from each conference. Top 2 seeds get a bye in week 13. Week 14 is seed one vs winner of 3 vs 6 or 4 vs 5 (lowest ranking seed remaining), see two will play the other winner (highest ranking team remaining). Week 15 each conference will have their championship game. Week 16 is champion from each conference vs one another... winner takes home the jersey. The two 'losers' from the previous week will face off for 3rd place.

Glad you mentioned this btw, I need to tweak the schedules to make sure we end on week 12 rather than week 13 so we don't have the Championship on week 17.

As I said in the email to the league you could have easily paid before the trip to Disney. There were 2 people who we were waiting on to pay and start the league. Both of which didn't respond at all.

So it was reopened and someone jumped in, stepped up, and took your spot. That said there is one spot offered to another person. If they don't respond by tomorrow then I think you will get back in with the last spot.

TBH a superbowl in week 17 works rather well from what I've found. Generally the weaker team has a slight advantage though.

Again I apologize if I held up the league but I did not receive an email nor a PM (I would have got it on my phone) throught the weekend stating the league was waiting on me to pay. As a matter of fact, when I signed up half of the members there still hadn't paid. There was only an email on Sat. about checking out the site and such, nothing about a deadline to pay. I think since I gave my word that I would participate, I signed up on safeleague and created a team name and everything, I should still have a spot on this league.

I think since I gave my word that I would participate, I signed up on safeleague and created a team name and everything, I should still have a spot on this league.

Not trying to be a dick, but I almost got bounced for not paying too. I dont really have any money since I just paid for college, and a dog, and moved (twice in one month because the other place lied about being pet friendly), and I still managed to pay for my entry, a matter of minutes after the commish requested me to.

Ok lets not let this get negative. Sutoazul you have your chance to pay by tomorrow. If you pay then you are in. If it were me I would pay right now and be done with it. But thats just me if I want to play I sign up and pay as fast as I can.

Yes the deadline was set to the 1st but the league filled up and most everyone paid except you and one other. So Alex tried to contact you and there was no response. Yes you were out of town but in our minds we are trying to fill a spot so we have a complete league full of competition.

You have to understand when we don't get any response we have to cover our bases.

Probably not and not because I don't want to but because we are having the damndest time just trying to fix the 2007 header.

So we will have to make do and just focus on the league rather than the looks.

Try again and next time try not committing and then waiting until the last minute to actually pay for the league. If you want to play say yes and then pay your dues.

If you are unsure and don't want to pay right away then don't commit. Saying the deadline was when you will pay is like saying I want dibs on a spot but I need to make sure I can afford it but hold my spot because I responded.

So I think Doggcow and Ryan would probably vouch for me regarding the bird dogging over the weekend to get the league dues in. Like Doggcow mentioned earlier, matter of minutes and he and his brother were paid up. They did that out of request so that I could move forward and pay the league fees and have full access to the league for everyone.

I could have very easily just moved the league fees due date to today, pulled out the commish Fee to pay for the site and been fine. One problem, whoever pays after that point is charged a late fee, which means your entry fee goes up significantly. I didn't want to put anybody in that situation. So I sent out emails, PMs and "nags" to everyone that hadn't paid. The folks that responded, we were able to get them taken care of. The folks that didn't respond, well I had to make a command decision. If you don't think you were part of the team, go to the fantasy site and you will see that Suto is already loaded in the db.

If it seems like I am being a hard ass about this, it's b/c I am. I have a situation where there is one owner that hadn't kept his end of the deal (and I couldn't find out what the hold up was or if that owner was going to even play) it's my obligation to do right by the 22 other owners that did. You are welcome to play. Welcome to join back in, but please understand that it is our responsibility to represent what is best for the league.

Sorry for the (maybe) thick-headed question...

Since we have 3 divisions in each conference, does that mean that the 3 division winners advance to the playoff, regardless of record, with the top one getting a bye. Or does the 3 best teams in each conference advance?

Think NFL Playoffs. Winner of each division plus three wild cards based on record. So SIX from each Conference. The top two record from each conference get the bye, just like the NFL but with three wild cards and three division winners rather than four division winners and two wild cards.

Playoffs start in week 13 though.

Okay, now I'm on the computer (rather than my phone) so I'll try to answer everyone's questions in more detail.

1st is Doggcow's. I agree with McApa. The site is well worth the coin, plus I was able to talk them into giving us a pretty good discount. You'll note on leaguesafe that the amount I pulled for the league is less than what we originally obligated/appropriated. Right now it is difficult to use b/c several of the links are still being hooked up. You guys have no idea how much time I've spent attempting to remake the links, adjusting the layout, and setting up the league. In hindsight, I should have just dropped the extra money on a custom template. I may just do that still, even if some of it is out of my own pocket. It will be worth it as I plan on keeping the league going for years to come or as long as TJ gives us the go-ahead. So in part, I do agree with you guys that for a newcomer it's probably a little overwhelming. I've been playing on myfantasyleague for five years now so it's pretty familiar to me now. As far as a free site, nothing out there comes close to giving us the capability that myfantasyleague does.

Mock- The draft will be nothing like the mock drafts we have on the OM. It will be done through the fantasy site and will be "Live" and take all of two hours (give or take a little bit) to complete... Each owner will have 1 minute to draft their player. You can queue players so that when your turn comes, you can choose your player pretty quickly. PM me with your number and we can set up a time to do a quick 101 for the site. If anybody else would like the same thing send me a PM with a number to contact you and I'll be happy to give you a quick review.

Has anyone/everyone read the front page article on the league site? It covers some important topics.

There are also like 5 different places to click "standings" etc. It just seems like it could be easily streamlined with a few tweeks.

Not trying to be an ass, my gf is a web designer and always complains about stuff like this to me too.

Many of this is personal preference.

But you are being an ass. JMO

You know the rule of 90/10 right McApa. Seems to apply here as well. You spend 90% of your time on 10% of the people.

As for the several different links doing the same function, I think the intent was to make sure everyone could easily find a link to take them to important functions such as submitting your line up.

As for finding the draft room... You put your cursor over the button on the top that says FOR OWNERS. The first four options are for the draft. Really, is it that hard?

Wait- I am picking 12th. This is the one thing I could not find anywhere on the site. It was pick I was. When I finally found a list of teams i thought I was 4th. I do not really care, I just need to know where I am at so I can plan accordingly.



So my only 2 questions.


1. What pick am I and where do i find that on the site?

2. When the draft time comes I just click on draft and then I am in the draft room and can start drafting, while seeing who has been selected right?



Other than that I am good to go. I will figure the rest out along the way. I just have trouble finding the draft stuff.

oh hey I found where the draft order is hiding for those who could not see it.

You have to go to "reports" at the top of the screen, then "leagues" then "draft".


If you go to "draft" anywhere else you will not see the order.


OK-Commishers- I got my two questions figured out, ignore above post!

Ease up a little dude! That site is cluttered and not everyone has been able to spend hours on it the last few years to get acclimated. "User Friendly" it is not!

It took me a long time to get used to it after not using it for a few years.

Difference is, I am just going to take it out on your wallet ;D

I would agree with Doggcow here. It took me a while to find where I was drafting. (BTW I noticed how the moved me from the NPN to the Orangemane, but it's still ok).

Anyways, last year I used yahoo, espn and cbs sportsline with no problems. I just hope that this site wins me over. We'll see how it goes on draft day and when I'm submitting my lineups. BTW, major props for myfantasyleague.com is that they have a Iphone app, that I could do a lot of stuff from my phone... pretty cool!!

I'm not taking it personally I am just saying if you play and don't like it then don't play again.

The problem with the internet is a few short sentences can come across way more serious then it sounds. I literally spent several days trying to make that damn thing work better but it didn't work, so my frustration is more towards that than people themselves.

Nothing personal just stating my opinion like the others here why are you taking it so personally that you think I am taking it so personally?

Also for what its worth, when the draft is over I think the site will be way more user friendly as it seems that the front page is definitely geared more towards weekly play.

Maybe next year when we have some more time to prepare we will find a host that is more user friendly but has some dynamics towards it!

Good luck everyone it will be a fun year!

Alright, I did a lot of re-formating on the face of the league site. If there is too much information on the front page I can take it off. Just figured it might be easier than having to search through all the links. I can just as easily remove it if it's too cluttered or annoying.

As for the links all over the place... I've sent an email in to myfantasyleague.com and will try to get rid of them. I'm not sure I will be able to b/c this is the customized format that Pez had created a few years ago. The links are all a part of that customization. I could cut the customization out, but then we lose all pictures/banners including the division names/pics. I can do it, but it will look quite plain... which may be more appealing to some. Just let me know, I'm not married to the pictures and format so if we want something more plain, let me know and we'll go that route.

Yeah... Trying to fix thoughs, just don't know enough about that kind of thing. Afraid that they're going to have to stick but I will see about updating them so they atleast work! Still a lot of other links that do the same function. I need to log off and log back in with my BMan account and see how it looks. It was a chore just figuring out how to lay all the front page stuff out and not have it taking up half the screen with blank spots all over the place... I'm learning tho.

Alex rather than shoot you an email like we have been doing I will just post here so people know we are really trying.

When you talk to them about the dead links, which have been driving me absolutely batty, ask them why when we remove the custom CSS file the site doesn't revert back to the basic layout and instead looks all crazy.

Maybe there is something we are just missing where we can at least go to a simple basic layout instead of the custom skin.

As for the links they are absolutely frustrating. One time they don't work, but if you click on another link to get where you need to go then all of a sudden the ones that didn't work do. Its something I have never seen.

I use this site in another FF league and never have problems like this one is giving us.

I know there is an iPhone app for the site. I have an Android based phone, but haven't looked or tried to go to the site on my Droid Phone or my blackberry. On right now with my iTouch though!

Buff, I can turn you on, just weary of allowing all owners to change the format of the home page. Perhaps it will allow you to customize just your own. Give me a few minutes and I'll give everyone that access and if it screws up the layout for everyone I will go back in and fix it... Getting pretty good at that part of it now! Still waiting on word back from MFL regarding the links.

Arkie, we won't do anything else on LeagueSafe until the end of the season when it's time to award the winners. Like Nick said, go to the MFL site and you will see all of the league stuff there. I also put a quick link into the front page for the draft stuff as there were several that had trouble finding it. Everyone see the draft link and countdowns now?
