    The new draft time is Wednesday, August 18th at 10:00 central for the $50 buy-in league.


    If this does not work for you, reply as soon as possible, so that we can work in another time slot before people commit to this one.

    Kori, can you please pin this thread and let the other FSP FF thread float away.

    Thanks.

    P.S. - Kori, what's up with the Yahoo league? Shall we try to run the drafts back-to-back?

    I'm traveling from Sao Paulo to New York on the 1th of August and will be in New York until the 19th, when I head to San Antonio. For me, personally, the 13th of August would be ideal.

    September 4 is not good. Can that time be reset? I would perfer August 18th or sooner. Also, Guru's time sounded good to me. I would be happy to compromise anytime up until and including August 18th.

    Using Sunday as draft day, I can make it either Aug 15, 22nd or 29th. If we can get everybody together excpet for one or two people, maybe one should consider taking Dr. Pill up on his offer to sit in for them on the draft. Maybe Scott could sub too, if needed.

    The 29th is best for me, however I can probably work the 22nd to my favor.

    Yeah as far as I know I am still good for a weekend draft date so if any of the big money crowd needs a proxy I would be happy to fill in. I've been eating, sleeping and breathing football info for the last couple months so I promise I can draft you a good team.

    There is an alternative to a draft - we could have an auction. This eliminates the need to get everybody together at the same time. Obviously, the auction does not begin until all the money is collected. FWIW, XPertLeagues supports auctions, so we don't have to go out of our way to set it up.

    By the way, we are down to 10 players in the league. I don't want to post another fantasy football thread here, but can anyone reading this thread help recruit another two players.

    What about a weeknight in the evening rather than during the weekend?

    Does like Tues August 17 at 8:00pm (random date and time) workout? Or do you guys prefer weekends?

    I can make it just about any day (or night) so long as I know when, just a little in advance. There's not a whole lot going on here in MS, so I am very flexible.

    What about Monday, August 16th at 9:30 pm central for the $10 league as a warm up and then Wednesday, August 18th at 8:30 central for the $50 buy-in?

    We need to have a set time in place as soon as possible. Has everybody paid? My uncle and I are in for the $10 league and I am in the for the $50 as well.

    This sounds good to me.

    Regarding the $50 league, participants are Alamo Spurs Fan, Kori, LJ, Kris, Iceman, Manny, TPark, Chris Duel, Mouse, and your's truly. TPark, Chris and Mouse have not been heard from in quite a while. I hope that they are still participating. Can someone get in touch with these people and get a confirmation.

    At best we have 10 players. I'd rather it be 12, so if anyone can recruit an extra couple of players, please do.

    TLC, might you now be interested in joining?

    Can anyone NOT make the draft on the evening of August 18th?

    Guru, I have some problems with the settings. Let me know what you think. My comments in bold.

    Passing

    Pass TD:
    6.00 Points

    Pass Yards:
    For every 10 yards, assign:
    0.33 points

    Interceptions:
    -2.00 Points

    Passing 2 Pter:
    2.00 Points

    Rushing

    Rush TD:
    6 points

    Rush Yds:
    For every 10 yards, assign:
    0 points
    No points for rushing yardage? I'm assuming this was an input error


    Receiving

    Rec TD:
    6 points

    Rec Yds:
    For every 10 yards, assign:
    0.67 points


    Receiving 2 Pter:
    2.00 Points

    Special Teams

    Special Team TD:
    0 points

    Offensive Fumbles

    Offensive Fumble (recovered)
    2.00 Points
    I'm not sure if we should have this.

    Offensive Fumble (lost)
    -2.00 Points

    Home Field Advantage

    Kicker

    FG
    3.00 Points
    + 1 point for FG between 40 and 49 yards
    + 2 point for FG between 50 and 75 yards
    (Maybe give a +3 for 60-75)
    + -1 point for FG between 40 and 49 yards
    + -2 point for FG between 30 and 39 yards
    + -3 point for FG between 1 and 29 yards

    Extra Point
    1.00 Points

    Missed XP
    -1.00 Points

    Defense

    Defensive TD
    6.00 Points

    Sack
    1.00 Points

    Safety
    2.00 Points

    Interception
    2.00 Points

    Fumble Recovered
    2.00 Points

    Blocked FG
    3.00 Points

    Blocked Punt
    2.00 Points

    Points Against:
    From 2 to 6 = -3 points
    From 7 to 13 = -6 points
    From 14 to 20 = -8 points
    From 21 to 27 = -10 points
    From 28 to 34 = -12 points
    From 35 to 74 = -14 points
    Why would your defense get penalized for holding a team to 2 points?? They should get positive points for that, IMO. This section should be something like: +4, +2, 0, -2, -4, -6

    Guilty. That should be 0.67 points per 10 yards; same as receiving.

    Offensive Fumble (recovered)
    2.00 Points
    I'm not sure if we should have this.
    There was much debate in the FF world last year in an Indianapolis game (IIRC) where an offensive player fumbled the ball. The opposing defense fumbled the ball back to Indianapolis on the fumble recovery return, and Marvin Harrison returned it for a touchdown.

    Who should get credit for the touchdown (and second fumble recovery)? I say Marvin Harrison gets the points, but some argued that the Indy defense should be awarded the TD. This rule appears to be a reaction to that rare occurence.

    FG
    3.00 Points
    + 1 point for FG between 40 and 49 yards
    + 2 point for FG between 50 and 75 yards
    (Maybe give a +3 for 60-75)
    Sure, that's fine with me.

    The text you pasted looks misleading. Just to be clear to everyone, all FGs are worth 3 points, plus 1 more for 40 to 49, etc.

    What about points against? (Last thing in my last post)

    This to me means that if the offense fumbles but then recovers it, they get two points. That would be stupid.

    If it's only recovering defensive fumble (very rare), I guess it makes sense. But I'd rather it be worth nothing.

    GoN, go ahead and set this up as the draft time on the $50 league. We'll adjust it if there's a major outrage, but it seems to work for most.

    I'll contact Chris Duel and Mouse to see if they are still in.
