Just a quick reminder, that this is growing closer, and is in the back of my mind . :dance:

Sadly, I was playing a ton more poker on a daily basis last year, than I had been in the past. That led ultimately, to me not being around as much as I had been in the previous seasons.
(this is also why I haven't been around as much recently, for quite some time actually, but I hope to be here a bit more in the coming months)

I personally can't wait until this season cranks up!

I have already spoken to fellow member "alsunday" concerning the next season, and after his solid first season with us last year, he is geared up for it as well.
We both agreed that we would like 8 or 10 "active players" in our league, and I don't see it as a problem.
I have 1-2 players around my poker games that I can bring on board if necessary, although keeping it to mostly board members here would be ideal in my opinion. (I will try to keep one solid, participating player ready if necessary, and I have already got one waiting if needed to fill an 8th or 10th spot)

Hopefully, we will get.....
TZ DZ Fan
alsunday
DrMoreau
LazyboyX51
jcrm316 (His brother)
SVB

Thats just off the top of my head, and doesn't inlcude a couple from lazy's fantasy circle that participated last year.

On that note, I have taken a quick peek or two, at what some are saying online about new rookie hopefuls for the coming fantasy season.

Many agree that Ryan Mathews (Chargers RB) and C.J. Spiller (Bills RB) will be solid rookie options.
I personally think that Jahvid Best (Detroit Lions RB) might be the sparkler that Detroit needs to give them a ray of hope, after what seems to be a lifetime of pitiful teams, and appears to be another excellent option.

Speak up now boys..................

Ok, check to see, but I should be signed up now.

Just as a quick note- what does everyone here that is a league/possible* league member, think of a small $$ league, say $10 a head?

Lazy and I have discussed this through PM, and he doesn't see a problem with it.
In our weekly poker game, I have run it by alsunday (which is another board member) and he is down with it too.

I haven't spoken with Lazy in over a week or so concerning it, but he did seem to think that the people he knows personally, have no problem with it either.

Anyone who is possibly involved with our league should at least give an opinion here if possible.

Yeah, I'm still down with a small wager. Most likely we'll have top two places scoring the pot, probably a 70-30 percentage. Right now we have 7 teams but still need at least one more to go to draft. I thought SVB would be down, but I don't know if he's still got computer/accessibility issues. Also, 10 teams would be ideal, so if any other board members or other associates want in, post here to request the information.

The easiest way would be to just send it directly to Lazy. (or you can send to me, seeing as you mailed to me 100 times , then I can send to lazy- In fact, Lazy may want to opt for this, to keep the mailing to a minimum)
Seeing as he can handle all the people that he brings to the table from his other league. (not to mention I already have sent to him before on a few occaisions, and I can just send mine and alsundays at the same time- I see him every week)

Now- a number of questions may arise with this.
But the lot can pretty much be taken care of, with this one point, which applies to all participants.
If you don't have your money to him(or whomever) by such and such a date, then you are not participating in the $$ part, but we would still be happy to have you in the league.
Then say we had 7 out of the 10 players that paid on time, (or however many) then the contributing peeps play for the $70.


Its starting to get closer to where we are going to have to make a move if we do this, so lazy might want to pipe up here, to make sure all is kosher. So if there are any problems that I haven't thought of, or people object en masse, then lets hear it.

I can send the $$ at any time BTW.

As of now, the live draft is set for 9:30pm EST on Monday Aug. 30th. Hope that works for everyone. I'm fine with however you guys want to send the $$. Doc and Al to TZ DZ and TZ DZ sending me $30 works. Do you have my current address TZ DZ? Any thoughts on who will fill the final 3 spots?

Well, DrM is set to mail me some other stuff as well, so what I can do, is just send you the $30 check and go from there.(me, alsunday and DrM)
As soon as you are ready, just let me know.

I know one guy that will play, but I need to contact him. He has moved, but I can still get in touch with him, as I know he was talking all last season about getting in our little league.

Maybe we can stir up whitsbrain this go around, as I think he passed in prior years, because of the (lack of) monetary interest.
SVB needs to pipe up here also, even if he can't participate for the $$, I think he still needs to activate himself in our league.

Even if we have only 8, its ok with me, as long as we have people that are participating regularly, thats what I want.

I'm game for you to contact the other guy (outside of this board) who wants in. If he is good for $10 then get the money from him too and you can send me a check for $40. Once you confirm whether or not he is in, then you can send me the check. Better check with him within the week as this draft is not that far off. SVB -- yeah I'd like him to join up but I thought I caught a post recently where he mentioned difficulty getting to a computer. So, that may keep him away from it. But hopefully that's not the case. Yeah - I'd like any and every board member with an interest in football/fantasy football to join so just post if you want in.

SVB joined so we have all 8 returning teams from last season. TZ DZ, I would still try getting your other guy in for #9 and hopefully we can find at tenth.

Are you gonna get into the $$ pool SVB?
It isn't but a mere $10, but aside from that, think of the priceless bragging rights if you win.

Err, thats what I imagine anyway, because I see a pattern for TZ DZ. Win more games than anyone in the league, and somehow manage to miss a key game at the end that costs me the championship.
(but thats ok, I'll take the wins year in and year out,if I keep that up sooner or later I'll be on top)

REMINDER*

Ok, the draft is set for one week from tomorrow at 9:30 eastern.

If there is going to be a problem, or you want to try and schedule for a better time, try and speak up now.
After talking with Lazy, and alsunday, (and my friend ron/who is the "rebels") Monday night seems to be OK with most of us in general.
If Ron can't make it, he is prepared to pre-rank the players anyway, everyone else seems to be ready to rock.

Pipe up now if you have any problems. :twisted: If not, it looks like all we need now is one more player to make it an even 10.

TZ DZ, I received the check today covering the 4 managers (TZ DZ, Dr. M, Ron, Al). I'm excited for the draft next Monday however, there won't be a draft if we don't get a 10th team. Any board member willing to take that final spot?

Yeah.... (when I am actually in town to mail it off, they come rather quickly huh) ;) :dance:


I am not sure what to do concerning a 10th team.
I suppose if we absolutely have to, we can field a "ghost team" like we did that one year, but I am like you, thats only a last resort.
Where is whitsbrain regarding this? I know in the past he has opted out, because he was in some real money leagues. Perhaps he might not want to join us because its very close to draft time. I don't think he reads the sports section of our board too much though, so he might not see this.
Please be aware- (ANYONE WHO WANTS TO JOIN), you don't have to play for the $10, you can play along for free too, if thats a concern.

I will continue to see if I can get another player though...... we can always consider other options by the end of the week.

Err, what was the reason you didn't join before?
I remember you were in other multiple money leagues, perhaps you weren't looking to get involved for "free".
I can see where a man of your financial stature might not have wanted to "play with us peasants", but now that he can fleece the sheep for a few bucks, Whit comes out of the woodwork. :ROTF:


Maybe this was all part of an elaborate plan of his, to get us to start a $$ league, and now he has stepped in for the kill.

Now if he wins this season, he can say "your ignorance makes me ill, angry, and rich".

NOTE - Lazy, I figure at this point, you aren't looking for any other players, but as of tonight, I may have found another willing participant (who would also play for $$) if you are interested. Just let me know asap.

Yeah dude, we're complete. I am no fan of a league with more than 10 teams. Plus that person would make it uneven anyway. We'll stick with the 10, but it's good to know that if we do need another person for another season, we've got potentials.

I am officially in the league. Thanks Lazy!

TZDZ...I didn't play in previous years because I have been in two other leagues for years, one of them I am the commissioner of. They are both money leagues but that doesn't have anything to do with why I haven't played PTE before. Being in three leagues just seemed like an awful lot of work, but I really have wanted to beat join you guys so this is the year.

I wouldn't worry too much about any supposed fantasy football prowess from me... ;) :P

Err....... Don't you think you could wait till after we actually get the first weeks results? LOL

Ok, it appears as though all participants in our league are "paid", with the exception of SVB.
This means that we have a pool of $90 to shoot for.

Alsunday, and my buddy Ron/rebels, asked if it was winner take all or another breakdown of the cash for 2nd etc. etc.
I told lazy in PM that this was entirely up to him, how to payout when the time comes.
He mentioned that winner take all was fine, and in chat ,I believe whit said the same thing seeing as its a small $$ pool.

Regardless of what you guys want to do, its fine with me, but just please confirm its "winner take all", or something else.
Alsunday checks here fairly regular, but I will have to pass the word on to Ron/rebels this week when I see him. He isn't the best with computers, and I seriously doubt he will even check (or knows how) his yahoo email.

GL to all, and I am glad to have this going yet again.

I can barely afford rent......so count me out. I didn't even get to be in the draft...needless to say I just joined so you guys could have an extra person playing. I dont even know who my team is, nor have I checked on it, or plan to. Sorry everybody. The past few seasons of playing fantasy football are just to stressful and not enjoyable anymore. It takes away for my love of the Skins....which i plan on paying 100percent attention to this year.....

Needless to say I am no longer a fan of trying to win something I have absolutely no control over....besides praying that I get lucky

Sad way to look at it dude, and I tell you why.
At first glance, your team is probably as strong, or stronger than any in the entire league in my opinion.
I told alsunday after the draft your team should make the playoffs, judging from the talent you have to work with.
Hell, you have Chris Johnson ,(you got the first pick),Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall,Tony Gonzalez, Steve Smith, for fucks sake dude, your squad looks tons better than any you have put into play in the earlier seasons for us.
You could use another RB or 2 though, and its still a few decent ones in the free agents if needed. Clinton Portis, Peyton Hillis,Fred Jackson, Larry Johnson, and you have Brandon Jackson, who should be starting for Green Bay this week, who would be a solid option instead of the injured Ryan Grant.
Err, you could still pick up Clinton Portis from the free agent pool, as it looks as though he will still be getting some action, if you want a Skin to help out. :twisted:

Now, you actually lost the first weeks matchup, but it was a freak. You lost your starting QB (Kevin Kolb) to an injury in the 1st quarter of his game, and if not for that, you probably would have won. That could have happened to any of us.

BTW- just because you aren't part of the money pool, doesn't mean you can't play ultimate spoiler, by playing hard and trying to win games, and knocking off some of us in certain games.
Remember, its about having fun, not necessarily winning $$$, if you aren't part of it.

Actually, I am kind of disappointed, as I was looking forward to your participating with what is perhaps the best squad you have ever had a chance to use.
You know, just swapping in another QB for the injured Kolb now would give you a Hell of a chance at the playoffs, as long as you filled in holes in bye weeks, etc. etc.

I think you should at least glimpse over your team, and I wish you would at least reconsider participating......... :(

I do think you have had a couple of bad breaks in the last couple of years too, and starting with your team this season, I thought you were one of the best shots at the playoffs, and I still do... with a small bit of managing.
