OA lot of people have been asking about the OM Fantasy Football League. I would like to do it again if there is enough interest still. Prizes would be similar to last year and assuming we have a lot of returning players, we could divide the leagues in similar fashion. Please respond with your interest. Returning players will have first priority.

For those that are unfamiliar with the league. There are two conferences. Each Conference is divided into three divisions with four teams in each division. The two conferences (each with 12 teams) has the entire pool of NFL players from which to select. The Championship game is between the two conference champions and they could possibly have the same players going up against each other. Last year, the OM Champion decided that he would bench Calvin Johnson (I think it was him) as we both had him. He gambled on another WR outscoring CJ... and it worked for him! Anyhow, the amount of teams should not dissuade you from participating. Their are weekly prizes, side games (Pick'em and Survivor) and several other prize opportunities.

This year we have a couple of volunteers to help customize the site more to our liking. I think most of the kinks were worked out last year as the season went along, but we certainly look forward to anyone that may be able to help with customizing, etc.

The league is Co-Commissioned by Apaops and Me. We also have requested two league delegates that will act as delegates should Nick or I be involved in a trade or any other event that may require Commissioner approval. One league delegate has already been selected, we well select the second in the coming weeks and announce both when that decision is final.

Prizes and Leaguesite. The league is currently hosted at MyFantasyLeague.com. I realize the site has its drawbacks, but the system allows for an extreme amount of customization including of course the ability to host two separate conferences.

Prizes are maintained on leaguesafe which provides a safe and effective method for tracking.


So far we have,

1) BMan13*
2) ApaOps*
3) CBF1*
4) Worm*
5) HAT*
6) spdirty*
7) Drek *

theAPAOps5
08-15-2011, 12:21 PM
We tend to leave the buy in up to the final group to decide the buy in. So we can create a league that best matches everyone's desired financial commitment as best possible.

Broncoman13
08-17-2011, 08:29 PM
Yes indeed, I would love to have Rev playing as well. Rock Chalk would be a welcome addition too!

For the guys with new born on dates, please understand my hesitation in adding you to the OM League. I am much more inclined to have a frequent poster, or even a lurker that has been around for a while. It is nothing personal, but part of what makes any league fun is active participation. In fact, I am going to propose to Apa some sort of incentive for the most active owners...
Something along the lines of, add/drop worth one point, trades worth five points. Winner of the award would win a small prize. Thoughts?

So I know my whopping post count may strike fear into the common man. And my pre-historic join date may raise questions to my capability to adequately manage a fantasy football team at my advanced age.

However, if you're willing to take me in, I fall in the same boat as Biggymac609 and would love the opportunity to compete with the OM community. :strong:

I think it should be later, because their are a ton of injuries and more than usual in preseason this year. Plus, with the late start guys are playing more in the preseason games. Just MHO.

The NFL is also supposedly considering moving all cuts to after the final pre-season game too, as a result positional battles could stay very muddled until the end.

Say someone drafts one of the few workhorse RBs early and his assumed backup as an insurance policy late, only to see that guy get cut over an UDFA who impressed down the stretch.

Count me in, please. If there's still room, that is.

My biggest issue is that I'm heading out of town on Sat. the 3rd in the late morning or early afternoon for a 2 week road trip (going through Denver for home opener). Any way to have one of the groups do the draft prior to then? Yes, I know...asking for special treatment. :D

I understand.

FWIW, I've lived in Denver my whole life and been a Bronco Fan all my life as well; refer to my screen name.

We're quite upstanding citizens and would be an asset to any league...

and we'll probably kick your ass (lol)...

though, maybe not.
We did draft Rafael Septien as our kicker, lo those many years ago, but, in our defense, it was BEFORE he was arrested for indecency to a child.

We didn't do so well that year.

Don't worry, like 75% of it goes to pay for the league fees (hosting site/leaguesafe) anyway.

Except that leaguesafe is 100% free.

I just assumed leaguesafe was a pay service, as they kept my brothers' winnings. So 'free' is subjective.

Point still stands, the league itself is a pretty penny for such a tiny buy in.

Rock Chalk
08-24-2011, 05:22 AM
FREE: You said this was free. Why am I being charged a transaction fee?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Using our default payment and withdrawal options, LeagueSafe is 100% free from start to finish. There are no fees for a commissioner to set up a league, and nominal transaction processing fees apply only if the default payment settings are changed by the commissioner. Users may withdraw winnings for free by loading their funds on a prepaid debit card, or pay nominal fees for other withdrawal methods.

FREE: Does LeagueSafe skim any of my league's funds?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No. At the conclusion of the regular season, 100% of your league fees are returned to the winners of your league.

Just from their FAQ.

Negative, no fees for transactions or anything like that. This isn't like my other league that you ran for me a couple years back... btw, that league has gotten a lot more expensive! 1st and 2nd rounders are a $20 luxury tax (each!). 3rd and 4th rounders $10 each, 5th and 6th rounders $5 each. If you keep your players, the luxury tax is due at like week 6. So if I trade for a player that was a first round pick or if someone releases a guy like Chris Johnson that is holding out until week 8 or something, I have to pick up his $20 luxury tax! $5 per transaction on top of all of that!

But no, this league is a one time only fee.

Broncoman13
08-24-2011, 07:06 PM
Just from their FAQ.

That's correct. The only fee there is from my side is that of the myfantasyleague site... which is common. That is deducted from the entry fee.

More like you kept your brother's winnings and tried to play it off as though it were league safe. You can lie to your brother all you want, but you aren't going to lie to the Mane with my name involved.

There is a reason you weren't invited back!

Did u vote yet? Saturday will not be a problem, but please vote. The faster everyone takes care of their end, the faster we can get the conferences set up and draft slots posted so you can prepare.

Don't mean to sound like a broken record, but my hands are tied at this point. All up to those that are left to pay and vote.

Saw your vote.

The draft typically lasts about 2 hours. We are set to vote at 7 PM MT on Friday and Saturday. If you need to leave early it will be in the later rounds and you are welcome to either set your queue or call me with your picks and I can select for you. Either way works for me... but I am betting you can get through at least 13 or 14 picks in two hours, and hopefully the whole thing!

At what point do I start dropping the dime on the folks that are holding us up? I hate to do that but there are a handful that I haven't heard from yet that have said they are playing...

People, the vote is simple. It's either this Friday or this Saturday at 7:00 Mountain. There are way too many people in this league to start just throwing new dates and times around. There is never going to be one date and time that works for every single person, it's a huge league. Just go vote for which of the dates that has been proposed works best for you and let's get going. If you can't draft on the date provided, just make sure your autopick rankings are set and ready to go.

No, we aren't going to wait. Looks like we are going to have 20 teams. That actually works out better, imo.

We will have 10 in each conference. 6 teams from each conference will still make the playoffs. I will have to do a little calculating on the prizes, but it should remain similar to last year.

It is this Friday and Saturday. No plans to change direction.

The poll options are for Friday the 2nd at 7 PM Mtn. And/or Saturday the 3rd at 7 PM Mtn.

So far we have 13 votes in with only two that are Saturday Only Votes. Six are Friday only votes. We won't have any problem accomodating anyone at this point.

With 20 teams we are going to have two conferences of 10. There will be two Divisions made up of 5 teams in each division. Division winners will naturally be automatic bids for the playoffs. We will continue to have 6 teams make the playoffs. The remaining 4 teams will be wildcard bids meaning that, in theory, one division could have the other 4 teams make the playoffs based on Record and H2H victories. Anyhow, 60% chance to make the playoffs this year! Not bad!!!

Okay, the draft is all but set. There are currently 21 owners. Next one to pay is in, the other loses his spot. Sorry, but that is the way this thing is shaking out. So, the final team in the Orange Crush Conference is TBD but it's placeholder is currently in the name of HAT.

Friday Night, 7PM Mtn, The Mile High Conference (name subject to change pending Worm and APA's approval):

Round 1 Draft Order:

1) (Bowtown) Drinking and Drafting
2) CBF1's Agent Orange
3) (Med) Cover Zero All Day
4) Floridian Broncos
5) STG's Men in Tight Pants
6) LiLFloyd44
7) ApaOps' Fightin Whities
8) CarneAsadaFries
9) Tebow's Holy Rollers
10) (DomCasual) The Mad Dommers

The Orange Crush Conference, set for Saturday night at 7PM Mtn is as follows:

Round 1 Draft Order:

1) Worm's Miller Time
2) BMan's Oskie Express
3) King Neckbeard BOOSH!
4) Tebow Haters
5) Carmelo15
6) (Deuce) Raiders SUCK
7) PhillyBroncosNut
8) Pezman or Hat
9) Dirty Killers
10) Gunns Double Deckers


Each draft is an "S" draft. Meaning it will reverse order every round. #1 overall will draft last (#20) in the 2nd round, but first again (#21) in the 3rd round... #10 overall will draft first (#11) in the 2nd round, but again will draft last (#30) in the 3rd round.

Apaops will run in the draft Friday Night.

I will run the draft Saturday Night.

Worm is the first commissioner delegate and is working a number of upgrades to the site. We will be selecting another delegate from the Mile High Conference shortly.

OK, I posted a question on the FF site but here it goes:
How come we already had our week one waivers round and week one games are not even over.
Last year, I think, waivers round was on Tuesday afternoon, few hours before FA opened.
It looks like it was completed last night at 9:00pm

???


I think it should be more like that:
Sunday: No Free Agent Moves Allowed starts at 1:00 p.m. / Waiver Request starts at 1:00 p.m. (prior to early game kickoff)
Free Agency (WW) Begins starts at Tuesday noon-afternoon (Waiver rounds), at that time we should also be able to drop players.
Unlock all FA Tuesday afternoon-evening. (after the waiver is completed)



Also, the waiver order is based on partial scoring....

Gunns, its not final. The system just does it that way for some reason. It also, gave up double TD points for ST/D until its corrected. There are a few flaws that need to get ironed out, but they should be OK after the official stats frpom tonight are tabulated.

I checked the calender of last season.
All moves were locked before the kickoff of the first game (either Sunday or Thursday)
Waiver Request start at the same time.
Waiver request (Locked Players Only) started on Tuesday 9:00 am
"No Free Agent Moves Allowed ends at 9:45 p.m." on Tuesday (That's when the waiver moves are calculated)
Free Agency Begins starts at 10:00 p.m.

The best way to set up waivers is to set up your requested picks in a priority order prior to waivers running. They run instantly when it's available. They go in the order you are on the wire. Also, when you drop a player, they are usually locked for something like a week. Don't quote me on that one, I can't quite remember. So, you'll have to wait that extra week until they become available to pick them up on waivers or FA.

If waivers have already run, the best bet is to do a FA move if free agency has begun.

Ex: If your player gets 77 yards receiving you would get 7.7 points rather than 7. Everyone in the league likes the scoring this way because it scores your players more accurately, while reducing the chances of finishing in a tie by ten-fold. Just a thought on a possible change for next season

Great season. Been really busy, but the iphone app help a lot.

All, please check your emails and send me your real names via email. I know some of you by name (CBF1), but there are several that I don't know by real name. Can't get the leaguesafe thing complete until I have your names. I posted a message on league safe and had it emailed to everyone as well. Please check your email junk box in case it goes there.

In most leagues that is dead in the water. You definitely earned this win. Good job!
