Default Orange Mane 3 league

Hey all.

Here is the thread to talk about our PPR league. Here is a start-off question:

Name three teams that will make the playoffs in our league, not including your team! 6 teams make the playoffs.

GO!

Money payouts:

1st: $150
2nd: $100
3rd: $50

Sound good?

I'd like to see a reward for winning the regular season title.
Maybe something like?
1. $50 for regular season championship
2. $100 for losing in the championship
3. $200 for winning championship

Means someone could win $250, but unusual for regular season champ to win both. I just like to see some reward for a great regular season...

Well, I like to reward a team for either being the number #1 or #2 seed or winning two playoff games. Giving a first, second, and third does that.

Also, we only have $300 in the kitty.

If you win the regular season or get second the prize is being in the semi-finals of the league as #1 and #2 get a bye.

We could do a most points championship for the regular season of $25, and do payouts of $145, $90, and $40 to first, second, and third.

What do we think of that?

I'm good with whatever, understanding that $300 doesn't go far if it's divided up too many ways.

That's a toughy. It really is. Almost everyone has good players but others that really suck and not on the bench. Dawg's, SoCal, and Doinks probably. As far as the money, however is fine with me. I'm just hoping all those good players on the other teams end up sucking...except for the WR's that are catching my QB's passes.....so that the money ends up in my hands. I also like Winders but I will not put him in the top 3 because I'm still pissed.

OK, if you want to do a points championship for $25, say so here. Or vote no. If we get to 6 votes for yes we'll do it.

Ok, I have just about had it with our commish. He snags two players I wanted and then outbids me for Morris. It's not like his team didn't do well and he needed him. He bids 1 more than me! I'm taking this personally!

I currently have a 16 maximum limit on FA pickups. If folks want to go with no limits, however, we can do that. Give me an argument one way or another and I'll change it or keep it the same.

I'd prefer no limit. Mostly because there have been times where I've made upwards of 40 moves in a season. Plus if its say week 12 and your player tears his acl and you can't get rid of him and find someone else because your moves are used up, that kind of sucks.

The waiver budget is cool as hell though. Gives everyone a shot at every hot prospect that had a great week.

I like the no limit idea too. Makes things more interesting throughout the season.

I'm going with this plan and setting it now. If you have an ojectin, let me know.

there will be a most points championship for the regular season of $25, and payouts of $145, $90, and $40 to first, second, and third.

I need Chicago's defense to score less than 26 points tonight.

Looks like I'm out of the playoffs, couldn't overcome my crappy 1-4 start.
