We get enough interest, I'll probably kick in $25-$50 to play.

We could collect money via Paypal and keep it in whoever's account. We could have the longest-standing member hold it, or whatever everyone wanted. If we could get enough people interested in the next few days, it would be nice to nail down a draft time.

I'll update the thread starter with interested players.

That paypal deal is sort of sketchy though.

Theres gotta be a good escrow site.

I would rather send postal money orders than pay a fee for a service like paypal. I'm sure we can get something figured out.

I'm good with that too. Although, you're not talking about much $ since you are paying postage for the MOs, etc. But I'm open to anything on this. I actually have a paypal account set up that I use for nothing but fantasy leagues that I run.

Thats cool.

The problem I forsee with paypal is someone just spending the money and saying they'll replace it. Then when it comes time, they don't have any money to replace it with.

Old Dog
07-31-2009, 02:46 PM
In if you're still looking for players depending on the site. I prefer ESPN (it's free, has live scoring and is easy to navigate). I wouldn't mind setting it up, but someone else can hold the $$......would rather do $50-$100, but whatever everyone else is into.

doomy3
07-31-2009, 05:38 PM
OK, as far as scoring, I am open to whatever everyone would prefer. It sounds like the majority would prefer a $25 buy-in. Is that correct?

If it is, let's just call it a $25 buy in and the first 12 to commit in this thread are in. I am out of town for the weekend but can get it all set up on Monday.

Scoring wise, we can set it up after we get 12 to commit.

You're second in line if anyone doesn't want in that I just sent PMs to (the earlier people who posted in this thread).

Buck
08-05-2009, 03:22 PM
I really hope Gonzo is in.

Even if I don't win the pot, it'd be worth $25 to beat the shit out of him at least once.

doomy3
08-05-2009, 03:25 PM
While I'm waiting for everyone to respond to the PMs, does anyone have a site they prefer? I probably prefer ESPN personally, because they offer free stat tracking unlike Yahoo.

Also, if there are dates that won't work for the draft, let me know. We will probably just do it one evening during the week.

And, if there are certain scoring settings that you want, we can explore that too. I usually prefer PPR leagues myself. I wouldn't mind doing a league that also drafts a couple IDPs (defensive players) as well.

Old Dog
08-05-2009, 04:02 PM
Yahoo is doing free scoring this year, but I MUCH prefer ESPN.
I cannot do the 29th, I already have 2 drafts that day.

scoring = We're all playing by the same rules, so whatever....I haven't done many IDP or PPR, but am 100% open to both if that's what folks want to do

Yep, it just adds a couple twists to the scoring, which is fun. I have done a lot of PPR leagues, but have never done anything with IDP scoring. Thought it could be fun. I'm cool either way though.

Buck
08-06-2009, 11:21 AM
Sick. Do they have it where you can just pay the money to them then they take like 5% off the top and give the money to the winner? If they had something like that, It'd probably be best, if not we could do the paypal thing.

Old Dog
08-06-2009, 11:23 AM
It's also easier (possible) for the LM do things with the home page....here's one of mine. It's kinda boring right now, as it's prior to the draft, but....

I am sure we will have some discussion on this in the future but I wanted to get the ball rolling.

As for the draft... will it be serpentine and how will draft slots be picked.

Any ideas on scoring system? PPR or not things like that. maybe we can get some input from the other guys. I have never played a PPR league so I would be up for that but I really don't care either way.

OmahaChief

Personally, I have never much cared for keeper leagues as I like the newness of each year. That being said if everyone else wants that I would be game.

Unfortunately, you are third on the list. I have to take them in the order that people wanted in. I sent a PM to next in line, and if he doesn't respond by the end of the day, we move to #2.

Yes, it will be serpentine, and we will just have ESPN determine draft order randomly for us.

I would like to do PPR personally, with standard scoring otherwise. I also think it would be fun to add in an IDP (Independent Defensive Player) or two as well. They score on sacks, tackles, INTs, etc.

What does everyone think?

I think you need to get the damned thing set up :)

Am OK with PPR and IDP (how about 3 of them....maybe 1 DL, 1LB, 1DB)

The only thing I dislike about ESPN randomizing the draft order is that it doesn't set until an hour prior to the draft leaving no time to mock from whatever position you get....no real big deal though.

Buck
08-06-2009, 02:15 PM
Yeah thats true, truebigdog.

I think we should find some randomizing program online and put the names in the hopper there so we at least know the draft order ahead of time....

And I would like to do PPR, but if we do IDP I need to know how the scoring works for them ahead of time because I've never done IDP before so I need to figure out about where I am going to draft my defensive players.

I have some things going on at work where I'm literally doing 3 people's jobs through the end of this month, and possibly into next month. If we could do this on a weekend, or a little later in the evening that would be much better for me. I'm on the west coast too.

Yep, we can do it on a weekend... truebigdog already let me know that he couldn't do it on Saturday the 29th, so I'm trying to work around that a little bit. August 30, I have another draft.

I would be open to the 23rd if you guys wanted, or we could do it later during the week if that worked too.

First game isn't until Thursday, September 10, so we could even do it that Sunday evening before that. Sunday, September 6. Does that work for everyone?

I'm really open to dates that work for everyone.

The 6th is great. I'd really like the preseason to see what's going on for this year. I'd prefer it be after the 23rd, but I won't complain if that's what everyone wants.

Anytime on the weekends is good for me. Normally 8 central is fine during the week too. We just have a tenuous situation at work that requires my attention for awhile. LOL As some of you know, I work as a credit manager. I'll be doing that, plus sales for this month. ROFL What a combo!

If it is on the sixth can we start it closer to noon or something like that. I have a plane to catch that night and would not be able to make that time. Most week nights work best for me or early mornings on weekends.

Old Dog
08-09-2009, 09:31 AM
I'm with Omaha Chief.....would like it to be a bit earlier if possible. 8pm seems awfully late to start.

8pm CST + 3 hour (at least probably) draft = 11pm + getting up at 4am = not enough sleep for an old man. If it's set I'll deal with it, but will probably go on auto for the last 1/2 of the draft.

rageeumr
08-09-2009, 10:05 AM
I'll deal with it if I have to, but I try not to do drafts Labor Day Weekend. It's my experience that too many people go out of town. There's a good chance I'm going to be at the lake with suspect internet service.

The thing is, it doesn't sound like there will be an option that works for everyone. We just need to come to a basic consensus on this and nail it down. I would personally prefer to do it on a weeknight in the evening, but it doesn't sound like Buck or Flopnuts could make that.

I'll probably be okay as long as it's not before 6pm CST. I know Buck won't be able to do that though.

Old Dog
08-09-2009, 01:49 PM
Evening I'm good with, but we're looking at late night to an early morning ending.
90 seconds per pick x 22 rounds x 12 teams = a possibility of 6.6 hours. I know that in the first couple of rounds it shouldn't be a big issue, but history tells me that nearer the end of the draft most teams will use most of the clock.
A five hour draft is not out of the question. That would have an end time of 1am Central with the current settings.

doomy3
08-09-2009, 01:54 PM
I haven't set any of the roster settings in stone though. I would like to do the IDP thing since I've never done one and would like to try it, but if people want to cut down on the time of this thing, we could cut down on that some.

Do me a favor, and post what dates/times WON'T work for you, and I'll do my best to find a time that works for most people.

doomy3
08-09-2009, 01:55 PM
I can't do Sunday August 30th, unless it's a late starting draft (8:00 CDT at the earliest)

Old Dog
08-09-2009, 01:58 PM
IF it would help I'll do it on the 29th (though I already have one draft and one auction going on that day, I can do two at once).
Any other date is OK, but I would prefer to start no later than 6pm regardless of the date. As noted above, we're likely looking at 5+ hours.

Old Dog
08-09-2009, 01:59 PM
of course the 29th is also the KC vs Seattle game, so that might be a turn-off to that time/date for some.

The rest of the week I work till 10pm cst (9pm here), but can get off if I have to.
Any late morning early after noon is good for me also. But I can manage to work around most anything, It's good to be one of the bosses :D

I know a couple people are into doing the IDP thing, but if we didn't do IDP, we could cut the draft to 14-16 rounds (depending on how many bench spots). That could theoretically cut the draft time down by 1 hr 48 mins to 2 hrs 24 mins. That puts us more in line for a 3:00 to 3:30 draft and more manageable for an 8 PM start time.

As far as my schedule, I typically work a regular 8-5. Most weeknights are free. Weekends are hit or miss.

I'm with Buc, if I can't make the draft, it's just not worth it to play. I have never had even a halfway decent experience pre-ranking, even if I spent a ton of time on it. There's just no way to account for who everyone else is going to take. If there's a run on QB's for example, you could end up with 4 RB's and Kyle Orton.

I'm not too worried about it though, if it works out, great. If not, it looks like there's plenty of people around here willing to take my spot. I appreciate all the work doomy is doing to accommodate everyone, but it's damn near impossible to line up 12 schedules.

everyone acts like the draft is gonna last more than 6 hours, i do about 4-5 leagues a year for the past 8 years and i have never had a draft last more than 2 hours and that includes leagues with IDP's

Old Dog
08-10-2009, 10:15 AM
nobody said it was GOING TO last > 6 hours, but it most likely will last >3.5-4. I don't think I've ever had a 12 team draft go in under 2 hours, and I've been doing this online (will only speak about online, as live drafts tend to run longer) for about 15 years. You must have tons of folks on auto pick.

nope most drafts i do have most of the people there, there is no way it would take 3.5-4 hours unless most of the people take up their whole time every time they pick. Most of the drafts i do, every one usually make their pick in the first minute.

Old Dog
08-10-2009, 10:22 AM
30 second clock?

Old Dog
08-10-2009, 10:24 AM
12 teams and 20 rounds even at 30 seconds per pick is still 2 hours, and more often than not a team takes >30 seconds to pick

Mr. Arrowhead
08-10-2009, 10:25 AM
30 second clock?

its usually a 90 second clock, but just because you have a 90 second clock dont mean you take the whole 90 seconds. Most people usually pick between the first 30-60 seconds

Old Dog
08-10-2009, 10:32 AM
If most pick between 30 and 60 (say 40 on average, since that' would be on the low end of the scale), with 12 teams and 20 rounds, then the draft would last 2 hours and 40 minutes, not under 2 hours as you previously stated.

Updates (I also just sent a PM with payment instructions)

Draft Date finalized for Sunday September 6. From what I could tell, no one really had a problem with that date. I did move it one hour earlier, so it will start at 7:00 PM CDT so hopefully we end a little earlier. Worse case though, if you need to get out when the draft is still going on, you can get through the first part and then autodraft after that.

Payment for the league due by August 30, but try to get it in as soon as possible. Also, please shoot me a PM and let me know how you will be paying.

League Payouts will be:

First Place: $200
Second Place: $75
Third Place; $25

I'm not done tweaking scoring yet, so if there is anything on the site that you would like for me to look at, please let me know.

For the draft order I found this site.. check it out it looks like this might work out.

http://www.fftoolbox.com/draft_order_generator.cfm



I am plugging everyone's email addresses into this right now, so you should receive an email here in a bit with the random draft order. I guess that's how it works anyway. Check your email that you used to sigh up for the league here in a bit.

I will also update this thread with the order, and will also update the thread starter and league page.

One other thing I see that jumps at me on further review: 2 weeks per round in the playoffs will mean that the Championship game (1/2 of it anyway) will be played in week 17 when many teams will likely be resting starters for the playoffs.
Was that intentional?

08-12-2009, 12:39 PM
I've done the 2 weeks per round, but not in week 17....that league had an odd setup though:
12 teams - one division
six teams to the playoffs - top two receive byes
play each team once for a 11-week regular season
Wildcard round was week 12
Semi-Final was 13-14
Final was 15-16

No, I just haven't adjusted the schedule yet. There won't be any matchups in week 17. I'll get to that here shortly.


As far as the draft order and emails, I am still waiting on email addresses for a couple people, so if you got a PM from me asking for your email address and haven't responded yet, we are all waiting for you.

I can't do anything until I can plug everyone's email address into the generator.

OK, we were only waiting for an email address from "whoarethechefs," but since everyone is waiting, I am just going to type in my other email address, chad@cmd-sales.com for that team. That team name is Tuscon Cactus Pricks for everyone's info.

So, all that to say, the email addresses and team names have been entered, and I will be hitting submit as soon as I finish this post.

Look for the email with drafting order in a minute or so.

I will also be updating the thread starter and the ESPN site.

Please post in this thread if you were in this league last year and let me know if you want in again this year or not. Also, if you weren't in this league last year and would like to be, please post in this thread and invites will be sent out in order of who shows interest here after we figure out who wants out from last year.

I am proposing a $50 buy-in this year, but if people want to stick to $25, I'm OK with that too. Just post your preference in here.

First on the waiting list.

I was in one too many leagues last year. I'll give up my spot to someone who'll be more committed.

Spot is OTWP's if he wants it...

Yeah, I'll take it. Not a huge fan of the IDP's, but I'll give it a whirl.

Is ESPN real touchy about off-color team names?

Because my names typically are just that.

Good deal. I'll put you down in the thread starter. Good to have you in the league.

Honestly, not sure about the team name thing. Go with what you want. What's the worst that could happen?

Also, shoot me a PM with your email addy so I can send you out an invite.

I'll probably change the name, however. I need to give it more thought.

Yahoo monitors league names, but ESPN doesn't (at least to my knowledge). In one of mine we have a stupid but traditional thing where the highest scoring team can change the name of the lowest scoring for one week and have had some extremely off-color team names there from time to time.

Oh noes, someone who's not even in the league doesn't like the name.

I would prefer more, but I would do $50.

I found a few big dollar ones on some online sites, but the site takes like 25% of the total for putting it together.

Yeah that is not worth it, and maybe I could do 75-100. I'd be happy to set it up if we could get enough takers.

OK great, we're all full.

I'll get payment instructions sent out to everyone within the next week or so.

Buy in is $50/team. We'll get the draft set soon too. It will be a weeknight sometime close to the first game of the season and will be in the evening.

If it ends up being on a Monday or Wednesday, you'll need to find another owner - I have class those nights, and I'm not paying $50 to have a computer auto-draft.

Not trying to be difficult, just getting it out in the open so you're prepared.

Draft has been set for Thursday September 2 at 8:00 CDT. Hopefully that works for most (all) of you. I'll get League Safe set up in the next couple days and start collecting payment. Once I receive payment from everyone, we will use a random draft order generator so everyone knows where they are picking early enough to start planning.

I had actually forgot about that preseason game, and there may be others going to it.

I have changed the draft to Sunday, September 5 at the same time. Hopefully this works for everyone, as it will not be changed again.
