Morphius-Sorry to disappear on ya.I may have finished second.As I recall,I had a chance to win it in the last week,but lost my final game.There were a couple other teams in the running as well,I just didn't pay much attention who was third,fourth,etc because I knew I hadn't won.I led the league in scoring though,so that's why I think I was second.

ROBHONDA

Does anyone have a problem letting Kloster take Dartgod's friends team? It will be his first league, so it could be fun.

Uh - correction, Morph. Not my first league, just my first BB related league. I may not win the whole thing but I'll score some serious points. That, I'll guarantee.

DaKCMan AP
08-23-2000, 07:36 AM
I should add that so far we have heard from 7 of the original and the only keepers I'm missing so far are the Slammers (Dharv) and Dartgods. That means that there is a spot for Russ as well if we don't hear anything from anyone else.

Dartgod - Was Zimmerman the one that is going to be gone?

1 - Me
2 - Nathan
3 - Gregg
4 - DHarv ?
5 - Dartgod ?
6 - Rocky ?
7 -
8 -
9 - Slackers
10-

Andrew, Kphobia and Russ I'm waiting on. I think if we can't figure it out then we should move the newbies to 9th and 10th.

Raiderhader
08-23-2000, 01:03 PM
Im pretty sure those top 5 are right. I know Zimmerman didnt win, cause it was someone who posted on the BB.

I thought it was Rocky's team.

I can't believe I didn't cut and past the results from last year. I will have to check my PC again tonight to see if I can find something, but have been unlucky so far. Of course it is probably on paper somewhere barried at home. Ughh.

DaKCMan AP
08-23-2000, 01:26 PM
Dr Red - Rocky also tried to claim 5th or 6th place, so I put ? next to them, but that is the order I'm going with so far.

I started off losing the first 8 and have no RB's as keepers right now. It was pretty pathetic and I was never anywhere but last place all season long. Though Nathan only beat me by one game.

Well you and I both know I finished in the bottom half.

Since I've ran leagues in yahoo and currently run one I don't see how we are going to do the keeper thing. I'm all for it cause it's something I haven't done before.

Yahoo doesn't have the format for that I believe. Have you researched this?

The autodraft will distribute players wherever it wants and will not take into account that we are a keeper league. You can go into the league options as a commisioner and check out what you can do.

Otherwise we need to e-mail yahoo if there isn't an answer to our question of how to do a keeper situation in our league on the FAQ.

DaKCMan AP
08-23-2000, 01:42 PM
Dr Red - Basically it will take some work on our parts, and there will have to be some trust involved. I will send the list in two parts the first is who saved who (I have verified them all so far), the second list is by position.

If we stick with auto this year we will do the following things, if we do live we will draft the players first.

1 - Each person will have to move these players to the bottom of the rankings, so that they do not get drafted.

2 - We then do the draft as normal.

3 - We then drop the players we don't want and sign our keepers.

It is a pain, but worth a try.

It may have been Tim Brister that won,although I am not certain.Is there any way to dig up last years standings at Sandbox?

Slammers and Monarchs were #1 and #2.

I believe ansonsdad is right.

Since you all seem to be FFL types, Bob Dole found it interesting that Tony G. was the highest ranked KC fantasy player on the CNNsi list at #21 (one spot behind Keyshawn Johnson and one ahead of Drew Bledsoe). Elvis came in at #28 (just ahead of Ricky Williams) with Slymo at #77 (one behind Tim Couch and one ahead of Jeff Garcia and ahead of both Rod Smith and Ed McCaffrey).

Brister won, and he is the one guy that has not said anything about being back.

Gregg - Slammers said they finished in 6th, Slackers finished in second?

Raiderhader
08-23-2000, 02:06 PM
Brister was the owner of the Slammers correct? Or did you mean Psycho's.

DaKCMan AP

Titus - Ouch, my brain hurts. OK, for some reason Harv are the Slammers this year, hence my confusion.

Bob Dole
08-23-2000, 02:11 PM
First I never said I finished sixth. I said I finished last. Ken e-mailed me saying he thought I finished 7th.

I'm the slammers.

I will look forward to picking second.

DaKCMan AP
08-23-2000, 02:14 PM
DrRed - I remember that it was Titus's little brother that was one game from last, I remember very well that Nathan and I could have switched place the last week, only I lost and he won, neither of us advanced.

Bob Dole
08-23-2000, 02:15 PM
This is the final order of who won, isn't it? This looks familiar to me.

Raiderhader
08-23-2000, 02:21 PM
Sorry, Dr. Red that is WAY OFF. I know for a fact that it went:

Jeff
Nathan
Me

The reason I know this is because that was the only thing to be excited about with 1 or 2 weeks left in the season.

There's no way you finished Last, 9th or 8th.

Bob Dole
08-23-2000, 02:21 PM
Hey jeff shot ya back and e-mail.

I'm keeping:

QB- Steve McNair, RB- Corey Dillion, WR- Chris Carter and LB- Derrick Brooks.

Hell guys, I don't care where we pick I just don't want a bunch of guys who won last year picking before guys who did worse in a fricken keeper league. It's unfair and don't make sense.

Bob Dole
08-23-2000, 02:23 PM
Morph,

I meant jeff. I wish
we had a copy of the finish from last year. Then there would be no question.

DaKCMan AP
08-23-2000, 02:25 PM
DrRed - I agree, and I would have the data available had I not moved. Sherman fell a bunch of places in the last 2 weeks after holding first almost all year long. I will see what I can dig up, but I'm pretty sure you were in the bottom half of the draft.

Raiderhader
08-23-2000, 02:27 PM
Drew Bledsoe was my only QB. Jake Plummer was my backup.

We know what he did last year. There's no way I won or was even top five. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif

Bob Dole
08-23-2000, 02:29 PM
I know I didn't finish any better than 7th so I should at least draft 4th or higher.

DaKCMan AP
08-23-2000, 02:46 PM
This is ugly, sorry about some of the confusion. After I hear from one guy the order should be set. Anyone think giving Brister till Friday is not long enough, since most of you got the email last week. Harv it took me a while to get it to you because I had to do some real digging to find your email again.

Raiderhader
08-23-2000, 02:50 PM
Morph: if he doesnt respond by Friday, we've got to move on. That only leaves us that last week to get our draft straightened out, rankings done before the start of the season.

Wont Yahoo cut off around the 31st for Drafts?

DaKCMan AP
08-23-2000, 02:59 PM

We need to have a backup plan in case yahoo puts someone's keepers on someone else's team.

Bob Dole
08-23-2000, 08:34 PM
I guarantee you it will mess up cause your depending on all 10 players to move 40 players to the complete bottom of their preferences. Someone is gonna forget something cause this is a human process.

DaKCMan AP
08-23-2000, 09:03 PM
Dr Red - You know a little more about Yahoo then I do, this is my first time there. I think what I'm seeing in the rankings we should be able to put all of our keepers first so that we get them and then rank the other players appropriatly.

There is no way to do it so that if someone makes a mistake, unless we all have our profiles set so that Dartgod can mess with our teams. We will have to work on an honer system and if anyone drafts another teams player make him give it up. It was something I warned about at the end of last season, so for this season I can't think of a better way to do it. Of course if Dartgod could put the players on our teams before the draft that would be cool, but I doubt it will let us do that.

Bob Dole
08-23-2000, 10:46 PM
I totally believe that the honor system will be followed in this situation. It unfortunate though that the computer could of autodrafted another player instead of the one that will have to be given up.

I like yahoo though and once the ball is rolling it's better than sandbox.
