Ok, that time of year is approaching and it's time to set up a league. We had a pretty fun year last year, it came down to the wire between me and Hoppy, but he edged me out by a few points in the playoffs.

WE WILL BE HAVING A LIVE DRAFT THIS YEAR. No auto-selections. So, we need to pick a day when everyone can be there to make their selections.

Also, I need some input:

How many bench players does everyone want? 8 or 10?
Do we want to observe the "ESPN Undroppable Players List"? (I say no.)
Do we want waivers? i.e. if someone drops a player, you have to wait at least a day before you can pick them up.

Also, there is an option for "player keepers". We can set this and it will allow us to keep certain players, and draft new players. I kind of want to do this, but another part of me doesn't. I'll allow you guys to decide. We have plenty of time. I'm going to wait at least until Hopps gets back from his cottage to start up the league, because I know he'll be participating.

IF YOU DON'T ANTICIPATE BEING ABLE TO ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE, PLEASE DON'T WASTE OUR TIME. Setting a team and leaving is annoying given the frequency of injuries in the NFL. Please only ask to participate if you can at least check on your team once a week.

Any new players post in this thread and I'll get a list of people to invite. People from last season shouldn't have to worry, just use your existing ESPN ID to log back in and you should be able to see the game once it starts.

Any questions, feel free to ask. And please give me some input on the questions. :)

We don't have to draft marv, but we're not doing autopick. It's either full draft, draft with some players from your roster last year, or no draft, all of your players from last year.

Undroppable means if you pick up a player that's good and is on ESPN's "Undroppable List", and they get injured and won't play for awhile..you can't drop them. Kind of annoying.

So basically..no waivers, 10 bench slots, and no undroppable players..

Do you guys want to be able to mix last year's players with new players, or even playing field for this year?

can i still join?

durrell
08-05-2007, 01:53 PM
You sure can, I haven't started the game yet..I'm about to right now. All you guys that want to join are going to need to make a free ESPN account at ESPN.com.

Anyone who isn't already in, PM ME YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS SO I CAN INVITE YOU.

Once we have everyone in, we'll set a draft day.

durrell
08-05-2007, 05:07 PM
It's looking like we're going to hit 20 players. If that's the case, what do you guys think about 2 divisions of 10 teams?

durrell
08-05-2007, 06:29 PM
Is there a reason you won't be able to be on the computer? If you can't make the draft then we have no way of giving you players..

Hasn't been decided yet, I want to wait for everyone who wants in to get in.

Oh ok, I thought by your last post that you meant you had already decided.

08-05-2007, 08:44 PM
Hey, hold up here. I want acouple of my players from last year, lol.

durrell
08-05-2007, 10:20 PM
So it'd be a mixture..which is totally fine with me.

Everyone gets a MAX of 5 players from last year. That should leave a wide variety for new guys coming in. You must set your keepers before the Live Draft. I'm going to go ahead and save mine.

durrell
08-07-2007, 10:47 PM
Go to Select Keepers at the top of the page.

EDIT: Guys, vote in the poll..we need to decide which type of draft we're going to do so that everyone can have their teams ready on opening day.

durrell

August 29th I believe.

I'm about to set the autopick so be prepared.

Ok, autopick is set for today. Should have your teams by tomorrow. Don't worry, you can still select keepers from last year until August 29th. However, try to make it quick so everyone has a fair shot at getting the players you release.

It was autopick..we decided not to do the draft. No one really got a chance to pick anything. Only thing you really missed were the free agents, and trust me..with as many teams as we have this year it was very slim pickins..

vwjimmy
08-10-2007, 04:48 PM
No worries. ;) ..that is why I said to pick for me......
I am going to 'pwn' this year anyway!

I think we may have a three way tie for first place after this week.

durrell
12-03-2007, 01:22 PM

Nope, it goes by total points scored. If Dan loses, he falls to third, and me and you move up to 1-2, respectively.

Hoppy11
12-03-2007, 01:23 PM
I was just saying record wise.

And I am not going to lose. The Ravens are going to have a stellar night :dodgy:

vwjimmy
12-03-2007, 01:27 PM
Yea, but I need both Dan and Matt to lose.....
.....can you guys forfit? :)

Hoppy11
12-03-2007, 10:54 PM
I think you can actually toss games, I know in my friends league you can but he doesn't use ESPN so idk if we can in our league. Ravens put up a good fight but the pats really are just that good.

I told you... They actually lost 37-3, but I hacked the TV and changed the score. They would have won if I did not fall asleep with 4 minutes left :)
