I'm in :D ! Remember last year, Roger is a HUGE cheater. I won the league but then he said that the playoffs don't matter and its the reg. season record, which I stopped checking after the playoffs were over..... And LOL, remember the bogus Eddie George trade, but I ended up giving him back :( I really don't think live would work unless we get real organized, last year's draft took like a week. Yahoo! has pretty good FFL too, but I'd prefer SportsLine over Sandbox. Good luck next year!

Hey 58,

Yea I remember. I'm gonna commish one this year, and trust me it will be fair. Also live draft, witha set time, if you no-show, tough, we will draft by census for you. that way we don't drag it out.

Cool guys,

Gonna keep track of everyone, and when season gets close will notify everyone with a leauge name etc...

Gonna try and do a live draft, so long as we can agree on a day.

Sooooo lokking forward to this season. Really enjoy watching anyteam now, as I always seem to have a player playing on whatever game is on.

I was in a league with 16 and by round five it was third and fourth string of everything. Sure it requires a greater knowledge, but man, who wants to depend on Todd Collins or Green Bay's third stringer to get points?

I would love to join if we did a live draft... I don't think I could deal with a week long draft. What are the rules for this league?

Scoring methods, length of season, playoffs and trades are things I need to know about first, though. I've been commissioner in a league before and I know the pains you go through, John.

I'd say go with cbssportsline for the administering of the league. Also, I would discourage making the league greater than 12 teams.

I think 12 is the magic number....
Three divisions of 4 teams - you play everyone outside of your division once and everyone within your division twice. Playoffs in weeks 13-14...

Would love to play if there are spots...it's really too early to talk FFL, IMO, but allways game to play.

A couple of notes, on the drafting situation:

First, You cannot pick the day of the draft in Sandbox. Once the league is filled, the date is predetermined for you by the system.

Second, You have two choices when it comes to the live draft. Slow live draft and Fast live draft and they are WORLDS apart.

Slow live draft gives the team owner up to 24 hours to make a pick if that person isnt set to 'auto' draft based upon his draft queue. If the 24 hour time period expires then a player is drafted by the system off of the persons draft queue or the statistically (best FFL stats) best player available unless that person is already full at that position, then it goes to the next position and drafts the statistically best player.

Fast live draft gives the team owner up to 3 minutes to make a pick. Theoretically, if everyone was on board, this would work ok, but we'd all have to be ready and available and I just dont know if it's possible if we cant pick the date.

Just what I remember from the draft FAQ's from Sandbox last year....I had a lot of time to read them since the guy that was out of town picked right before/after me.

Mile High Mania
05-01-2001, 05:58 AM
If there are teams from last year that want to return, then definitely give them first right of refusal. Just let me know if there's a vacant spot.

As for live draft... I'm out on the 24 hours b/t picks. There has to be a date sometime within 2 weeks of opening day where we can all be on-line for 6 hours. Each year we have two 'face to face' drafts with 12 man teams and they take about 3.5 hours. So, allowing twice that amount of time for on-line drafting shouldn't be bad.

It would be a whip... but, not as bad as a live week long draft.

KCTitus
05-01-2001, 06:01 AM
Brad: It was excruciatingly frustrating to sit there for 8-9, 12 hours and wait for one person to make a pick.

I told myself I would never do that again...I guess time does heal all wounds.

I'm up for fast live since I've got Inet access from pretty much anywhere, but Im probably in the minority on that.

It was fun, when we were all drafting actively.

Mile High Mania
05-01-2001, 06:04 AM
Titus, I agree. I did one of those 24 hr drafts years ago with a site called rotonews or fanball... one of the two. I think I'd rather play crotchball with my hands tied behind my back than do that again.

John -

My youngest son played in the Sandbox last year and finished second, so with his help I might be able to win at least one game IF you should need another player.....

Prefer the auto draft (live takes forever) but I'm amicable to anything.

Yo Guys, looks like we will be able to have at least 2 if not 3 leagues this year!!! :)


I'm gonna keep a list of everyone, and when Sandbos & CBS get there football sites ready, then we can get going.

I figure since we have so many wanting to play, we can do a random drawing, to assign people to leauges. that way it's fair. Also if we have enought that prefer Auto VS live draft we can have seperate leagues for each.

Hoover

HEY Guys,
Like I posted looks to be 3 leagues of 15 people. I'm Assuming several will want to play 2 leagues, as to fill up the 3rd one. Plan on setting up 1 as auto draft and second as a Live draft. 3rd we'll just see what everyone wants.

Probebly do the Live on sandbox, and auto on CBS, unless everyone wants to keep leagues on the same site.

Also just an idea does anyone have the Final rosters for any of the leagues we had last year? Might make it interisting if we used one as a keeper league?

OK, this thread is obviously taking on a life of its own, so who am I to pass on all the fun.

However, if possible, I'd like to be in Gaz's league.

Nothing like taking an Engineer down a peg or two :D

I'd forgotten about those compasses (darn pointy things).

Course, then again, how dangerous can a tech writer be. About the worst I can do in retaliation would be to drop a huge pile of revisions on your foot, or maybe spill coffee on your blueprints.

That, or constantly call you about 3AM asking, "Now, regarding the domafrachit, does the flywheel turn clockwise or counterclockwise?"

I'm sure we'll get into this later on, but I'd like to recommend we shorten the time per pick by at least 10 minutes. I've been involved in a number of live drafts over the last 5 or 6 years, and IMHO the best ones by far were the ones with @3 minutes/pick. Anything much longer than that and you may looking at a draft that takes more time than most of us have...

Rausch
05-05-2001, 01:46 PM
I haven't been able to really even use this site for about two days now. I'll post something, then it takes over ten minutes just to return to the forum...SLOW....I've missed this thread and hope I haven't been removed from consideration for a team.

Definitely three minutes a pick, and if someone can't make it, email your preferences, in order, by round, so someone else (hopefully, an honest soul) can pick FOR you...

Worde out ok for me in the past..

Just a quick update...

EVERYONE, who wants to be in FFL will get in. We have 2 full leagues so far, but I'm sure we will end up with at least 3.

As for the draft we can change that to a shorter time, and you can have someone pick for you, or use a bot to do it. (will explain it further closer to time)

Now as of this time only CPBB1 (league #1) is set up.
Going to get all the bugs and such out, prior to setting up the last 2. All those listed in League 1, wich was posted about 10 posts prior, should have the password. If not let me know.

Please be patient as I'm working on it.

The logo is changed now John, not sure why it wouldn't let me yesterday. I uploaded a logo, which didn't look very good. I edited and reloaded, but it wouldn't change, yet I could change to one of thier logos and change back to uploaded version, but still was stuck with the original. But, that's ok now.

If you would, please rename my team to Purple Haze, since I still can't do this part.

Thanks!

Hey Guys.

talked to Tech Support. Going tru the commish service, I have to input owners names and Team Names. Kinda of a pain, but it also enables me to set the league up as we want it, not as they do. ie, i can set any limit to players on teams, ect..ect. So I guess it is worth the extra hassle.

As for scoring I'm going with a stanard system, unless anyone wants something specific.

Also all of you who have sent me team names, I will get them changed tommrow. Also I have put a complete listing of League #1 on the FFL portion of CHIEFS PLANET. As soon as I get #2 & #3 ready I will post them on seperate threads.


BRAD,

I e-mailed you with my "e-mail" so you could send me all the pertinent info (passwords, etc.). However, I have yet to hear from you. Therefore, I am willing to assume that my e-mail never reached you.

If you could drop me a line at rwhite@masakishrine.com (my other e-mail address) and I'll get started trying to put a team together.

Brad C. --- I was talking to Brad E (aka MileHighMania), but I'll be more than willing to throw a little smak with you a little closer to the season. I'd be happy for you to take second... to me ;)

Anybody know when I can get in and start building my player list? If I remember right without searching back through this whole thread, the draft was set on Aug 25th, right?

That's a Saturday, and I will not be on line over the weekend. So, if I'm gonna be in this league, I have no choice but to automate, as much as I hate to.

Somebody help me out please?

ct
besides, i just had to have #100 :)

JOhn
05-10-2001, 11:17 AM
I set it to the 25th, which is a saturday.
Now I just did that to put a date in. As for me, I really have no preferance other that evenings after 4:30pm or anytime on the weekend. We can come to a consensus when we get closer. I can go for a weekday during the day if we decide to, just need advance notice, to arrange me schedule.

League #2 is up, And I will be sending out passwords to those who's address I have.

ct
05-10-2001, 02:00 PM
Gaz, you're a brown noser!!!

And also, THANK YOU joHN!!! Very much appreciate the hard work already logged, and that which is yet to come.

I'll throw it out there now, that I'd much prefer to at least START the draft during a weekday. At least this way I could go live draft for the first few rounds, then flip the switch for auto when I have to. My draft philosophy has always placed special consideration to the mid rounds. Grabbing quality depth(including #2 RB/WR & #3 WR who are starters) is what distinguishes the playas from the chumps. I have little faith I'd be able to set a static 'ranking list' to accomplish this, so I'd better be damn sure to get some top-flight studs in the first 4-5 rounds.

My reasoning is selfish, I admit. But I don't get on-line over the weekend or evenings. After spending all day hacking code, and occasionally surfing my favorite BB (or maybe vice versa ;) ), I really have no desire, nor the time to get on 'after-hours'.

I'll add that if I'm out-voted on this, you'll hear no whining. I want to participate, one way or the other. Only putting in my2c.

Anyway, I've already looked into the ranking lists, which are available to start work on right now. But I need to know more about the scoring system. Where can I get this info?

I've looked at the draft stuff a little. Mostly the player ranking stuff. I'm behind a firewall, so I'm hoping the Java will come through OK, otherwise I'll just use the HTML and F5. That is IF I'm available for live draft..still hopefule we can work that out.

John, any info on scoring system? I would like to start ranking my player list, just don't want to start without more info.

QB's getting 6 points per TD throw makes pivots absolutely valuable, but the minus-2 for INT's evens the playing field a bit.

Brad, Only the commish (me) can change team names, hence my email :D Let me know what name you want. You can edit your logo, using the OPTIONS button, on the left side, last one.

Also you can go into draft prep and get your players ranked and such. That way if you miss the live draft, you can still choice your players.

hope that helps

Yup Brad gotcha :)

So whats everyone think of the scoring system?

keg in kc
05-16-2001, 02:44 PM
JOhn, a little nit-picking about the scoring:

I'd advise dropping the bonuses (i.e. for long TD, long FG) to 1,2 and 3 if you can. 4 and 6 points is an awful lot and I'm not a big fan of 12 point TDs (max of 9 is enough) pr 9 point FGs (6 is enough).

It's a minor point, but I'd probably change to 5 points for 350 passing and 150 rushing/receiving instead of 300/100. Big bonus for an exceptional day and it'll be harder to get. Too many QBs throwing 300 yard games nowadays, so make it tougher...

On defense, in the points against section, teams can get 2 points even though they give up 27 and 4 if they give up 20. I'd probably make it more like 6 points for 0-6, 4 for 7-13 and 2 for 14-20. A defense giving up 21+ points isn't something that should be rewarded IMHO.

If I think of anything else, I'll let you know...:cool:

HC_Chief
05-16-2001, 02:59 PM

RedShirt, Just emailed you with password :)

HC, glad to know I got something right..DOH!!!!
Draft for BB1 is possiably the 25th of August at 10am (sat) But thinking of moving it to early evening on the 24th (fri) say around 4:30 or 5pm. That way those who post from work can at least get a few rounds in. But will wait closer to make a final decision. Just depends on what the majority want. Of course the draft prep section really alows you to get a good setup in case you are not able to draft live.

Keg,
Yea now that i look at it, your right. I like the score based on performance, but I think I will par it down a little. Will probely work on it later tonight.

Rausch
05-17-2001, 04:07 AM
I agree that distance gaining you extra points is kind of nit picky....

My league just goes by 1 pt every 20 yrds passing, all td's are 6...If ya' get a longer td you're rewarded by the extra points on the yardage. But then again, this is only because I do it myself, by hand, and not a puter online doing it for me.

Which is starting to seem like the wise way ta' go!
:D

Only not all in my league have a comp, so there lies the complication...

Somehow I knew you would Roger.

CBS has a option in the commish area to set up a league with salary caps etc. Thought it might be fun (or not) to try it that way.
If I do, I will probely have to have a co-Commish, depending on how complicated it is. But If I do go for a third it won't be for awhile, say late early july or so.


BTW did you get password?

ct
05-17-2001, 11:42 AM
Looks pretty good JOhn. I agree the 100/300 yd bonus is overkill, given you already award yardage bonus in increments.

One point I'll make, though. I've never liked safeties valued equally as TOs. In essence, a safety IS a turnover + 2 pts!! IMO, safeties should be double TOs in point value. They happen very infrequently, however, so I can live with it.

One more nudge on the draft date/time. I see you're considering starting on a Friday afternoon, which would be fantastic for me. But 30 minutes won't buy me much before I head home @5pm. How about 2 or 3pm, if we go this route? We could possibly get through 4 or 5 rounds by 5, if we're lucky.

05-17-2001, 11:53 AM
Mlysond Sent you the password.

Coryt, We'll wait till a little closer to make final decision. But keep this in mind It'll take approx 75 minutes per round. Thus we can get in several rounds if we start by 3pm. BUT soome off us who do not have access from work, would have to leave early or so, as you might have to stay late?

I can get the day off, but worried that those who can't would miss to much. Just depends on how many we have in each situation.


As for the safeties I will consider that, and add it if no one objects. Like I posted early in this thread, I want to make this fun for everyone, and not be heavy handed. SO whatever the majority wants they get. :D

JOhn
05-18-2001, 09:23 AM
Coryt,
Changed the Safety to 3 points. Mainly as a comprimise. As not always is there a fumble involved. Besides which I think that a safety is a real +, more so than is reflected by the actual points involved.
