  1. Thanks, Squishy! Hopefully they got the emails from ESPN, but always good to double check!
  2. It's been pointed out that the system will actually let you add players to your team right now. Please don't do this!! You can drop players if you want to, but you don't have to as the system will purge all but the players that you marked as keepers prior to the draft. I will be clearing any players that weren't on your roster at the end of last season myself if I see them on there. Thanks for understanding! Stefan
  3. If we use last season as an example, there were 4 teams in the losers bracket (since we started with 12), using the old system the Muffin Isle Muffins (no longer in the league) would have had the #1 pick by default of getting annihilated for 3 straight weeks of the playoffs. Pillagers Plunderers on the other hand won two of the last three games (beating me in the final week) to earn the top spot of the losers bracket and by the proposed system would then have earned the #1 overall pick.
  4. Yes, Randy is correct. Traditionally, we would just go in the worst to first order (and I think that we'll keep that for this year) but I would like to see the #9 and #10 teams actually have something to play for by making their 3-week matchup be a winner take all for the #1 pick.
  5. Not sure what you mean, Randy. The way that I see it, normally we draft a player and get to keep him twice (for a total of 3 years). So, what Heisler is saying is that anybody we keep this year will have already been on our team for a year so in essence, we would only get to keep them two more times. The other option is to pretend that this year is year one since we're just starting this, so we'd still get two more keeps. Oh, and if you want to drop go ahead, but you don't have to drop anyone if you don't want to, either way just remember to click "Select Keepers" at some point and check the four that you want to keep or the system will dump your roster just before draft time.
  6. One more question: Does this season count as year one or year two for keepers?
  7. LAST POST EDITED TO REFLECT UPDATED KEEPER INFO. Also, pared the league down to just two divisions: Legends and Warlords. Teams were randomly assigned to a division (using a D20, of course!)
  8. Question #1: Yes, I'll put last year's rosters into effect. Question #2: Yes, since we do reverse order, teams #9 and #10 don't make the actual playoff but still play each other for three weeks in a row. I am suggesting that whomever takes 2 of 3 or better between them gets the #1 pick. Question #3: Rosters are in place. Just click "Select Keepers" and pick up to four that you want. Keepers lock 1 hour before the draft. If you don't select keepers or choose to keep less than 4, that's your decision to make, you'll just finish filling your roster once everyone else is done.
  9. UPDATES!! Live Draft Draft Time: Saturday, September 3, 10am Central Time 10 Teams Still haven't heard from Brian, so I'm going to call it. 4 Keepers, Max 3 years Unless anybody has any objections, we'll go with 4 keepers. You can have a player on your team for a maximum of 3 years (so each player can be kept twice). NFL Draft Order Since we're still incorporating a Keeper system, I think that Worst to First is the best way to go for the Draft. I would like to propose that the teams in the losers bracket (teams 9 & 10) actually play for the #1 pick, meaning that the WINNER of their 3 week clash gets #1 instead of the loser as has happened traditionally. This keeps a bit of competitive fire going down there rather than one team tanking it for the first pick the next season. That's all that I've got. If anybody has any problems/concerns, make your opinions known soon. We kind of got this started late this year (which is on me) so there isn't much time to make a bunch of changes. I'm going to run with this for now and if we need to make more changes, I can. Stefan
  10. I feel that 8 is probably a bit high, I would suggest 4 to possibly 6 on the high end.
  11. I edited my previous post to reflect the status of Justin and Travis. If we don't hear from Brian, that would leave us at 10 so we could just keep it as is.
  12. My feeling on keepers is to go to a set number. We could set a limit on how long you keep someone to avoid that lock down. My old league used to have a 3 year rule on a player. If you kept him for three years in a row, you had to drop him. It avoids the draft nightmare that we've been dealing with because you set your keepers before the draft.
  13. League Update (listing by team as I don't always know who's who based on real name vs. forum name): Groo and The Wanderers IN Midvale School for the Gifted IN Florin Brute Squad IN Best Available Players IN Muffin Isle Muffins OUT Blistermix Team Venture ? Colorado Stouts IN Jeff Logan Ritterlich Tigers IN Pillagers Plunderers IN Mystery Men IN Burnham Blood IN Fabulous Freebirds IN So, questions for the league: Anybody know the status of Brian Cate? We're down one right now and I know that there were some interested in downsizing if at least one of the others drops, where do we want to set the new cap 10, 8, ?? Keepers or no keepers (how many?)? Dynasty or no dynasty (keep who you want)? etc. Draft order? Live draft or Auto draft?
  14. Thanks for getting a thread started, Randy! I sent a message via the email the league function at ESPN. Please let me know if you're in or out. Thanks, Stefan
  15. Not really sure, how I'm winning this week, but somehow I am.
  16. FYI, I finally got the week 9 trophies awarded.
  17. I do the same thing, Rupert. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that in the current setup. What Heisler is talking about is limiting our bench size to fewer players and if that's something that the league would like to do, I'm all for it.
  18. Trophies for the week are up. And I agree, I hate the teams that never change their rosters.
  19. I feel you. I've been wavering back and forth since sometime last season (hence my lack of motivation to get the ball rolling this summer.) My problem is that I like everybody in all 3 of my leagues and as commish I hate to dump any of the leagues and leave everybody hanging.
  20. Didn't know anyone was interested. Here's a link to the league standings page: http://games.espn.go.com/ffl/standings?leagueId=192738&seasonId=2015
