Do we have a league yet? Or is the $100 cost prohibitive for some?

As an aside, if anyone knows of any higher stakes FF leagues that I can participate in in the future, please PM me.

League has been created

League info here

I put the draft time I think for Sunday, 28th around 10:30 EST was the only available time other than 6:30 est which I figured would be too early in the day possibly for people who are not on the east coast.

Everyone who was in the league last year, should get an invite via email automatically.

As far as the pool, if we had 10 players at $100 each. I would break it down something like.

Regular season:
1st place: $400
2nd place: $100

Playoff Champ:
$500

I agree, playoffs can be a bit of a crapshoot but also you have to plan for what players may be sitting that last week. For example, do you ride Brady throughout the season but take the risk that in the real nfl season (our playoffs) he may be resting.

One league that I am....to reward the regular season teams that did well makes the lower seed teams sit like one positional player and one defensive player in the first round, then one defensive player in the 2nd round, then in the later rounds I think it is just even playing field I think....cause at the Superbowl they are no advantage as far as home field in real life.

If we could agree upon some rule like that, then we could reward less to the regular season winner and more to the playoff winner as the regular season best performers SHOULD have the best chance to win the playoffs with those settings.

Just a thought to kick around....

Anyone else having problems with these links?

I tried all 3 links that were posted, did a search (while logged in to my yahoo account) for "Fastlane Fantasy Football" and "FastlaneFantasyFootball" with "fastlane" as password. Not sure if you need to enter into the league to do invites directly to email addresses, but I can't seem to register.

Hey guys, don't know what is going on with the link....if anyone can be help me out with that, that would be great but if you want to just look up the league in yahoo, go to whatever page allows you to join private leagues and the name is

League: Fastlane Fantasy Football

Password: Fastlane


Just off the top of my head, without going through the thread on here...

I know these four are typically in, the other guy with the requst to get in makes 5. A long ways from where we need to be.

Again, if anyone is out there saying I will do $25 or $50, then let us know. If it comes down to having a 10 man league for $25 per team, that is better than no league. So don't be afraid to chime in if you would prefer to pay a lesser amount, at this point anything will be considered.

I just accepted. I emailed LODO to accept also. I talked to Mud Dogs and he won't be back this year. I invited 4 more guys from my office, so hopefully somebody bites.

Just tried to join and it said that there is no room in the league if all teams rejoin from last year. Get the commissioner to increase the maximum number of teams or delete the teams that are not rejoining.

league has been upped to 16....can go higher if needed.

I think we have 7 now, so the chances of having a season is looking somewhat better.

I think everyone who said $100 was fine, will be fine with $50 as well.

If you have any friends or family that would want in for $50, tell them to sign up!

At this point, I think it would be a good idea to get a solid draft day and time setup.

Anyone have any days were they cannot participate, or any request in regards to that?

Thanks

Luke

C'mon guys we need 1 more player, or 3. I've already brought in a newbie.

Also, the entry fee has been reduced to $50.

I see we're up to 9 players now. Wish we could get a few more to make it a fun season. We're down to $50 a man now? Bummer... But if that's the only way we could get people to play, I guess...

I just talked to Mud Dogs from last year, and he says if it's $50 -- he's in for this year after all, so you should see him pop up as our #10 shortly.

Should we try to get a couple more people?

I noticed that the Draft is now showing up as Monday night instead of Sunday morning? Just want to confirm because I thought someone said 10am on Sunday morning was the only time available!? Monday night works great for me.

Thanks,

Ok guys,

The draft is scheduled for 10:30 EDT.

We finally have 10 players, which is enough to have a league. I am assuming $50 per day is the entry fee....totally fine by me.

Is the draft time a problem, should I bump it back? I think if we bump it back, we can only do that for either Tuesday-Thursday of this week as this upcoming weekend is Labor Day weekend.

I just don't want 3 people in the draft, most everyone autodrafts and some pay and some don't.

If anyone is reading this, please let me know if you think bumping the draft time back to say Thursday would be a good idea, that way everyone can spread the word and be online for the draft. Otherwise, I am afraid we are going to have several autodrafters tonight and maybe some people who don't want to cough up $50 when Kerry Collins is selected for them.

Thoughts?
