Ok...so how many people here would participate in an NFL FFL?

ESPN has a standard 10 team and a custom up to 20 team free FFL.

Lets get a TWForums FFL active!

We have until Aug. 5th to set it up.

The difference between the ESPN standard & Custom, other than the amount of teams, is:

CUSTOMIZED LEAGUE FEATURES
4-20 Teams per League, optional "Keeper" functionality
Customizable Roster Sizes and Positions
Wide Variety of Available Scoring Categories
Balanced and Completely Editable League Schedule
Full Control Over Playoff Structure and Matchups
Not eligible for Uber Points, ESPN League Prizes, or Overall Fantasy Football Prize


or

ESPN STANDARD LEAGUE FEATURES
10 Teams per League
Rosters of QB, RB, RB/WR, 2 WR, TE, D/ST, and K Slots
ESPN's Performance Scoring System
Fair and Balanced League Schedule
Four Team, Four Week Playoff Structure
Some ESPN Standard Leagues are eligible for Uber Points, ESPN League Prizes, or Overall Fantasy Football Prize


I say lets keep it simple and go the ESPN route...but this would depend on how many teams would participate.

So besides me...who else is in?

As of now it is a small FFL (7 teams) that is set up so the odd's of those dropping will be less.

Waiting on Exotic to reply w/ email address.

Invitations have been sent to those that wanted in.

Once we have all our people registered we can set up a day or evening for a live draft.

Draft order is not set in stone as of yet. Once all 8 teams are signed in with ownership it will reset itself. If necessary, I will take the last spot. Yes it can be changed, but for now until we have everyone signed in it is in limbo as it will not set itself until we are all registered.

need to just come up with a draft day and time. I was thinking a Sunday would work, just would need a time. We will do a live draft.

Sunday draft later in August that is. Not really necessary to an earlier, as we do not know who is to be cut or injured in training camps.

Maybe Sunday the 14th or 21st?

Or if we need to we can do it this Sunday and just edit the drop/add area since it can be customized.

08-05-2005, 09:07 AM
I am thinking the 14th as well, but considering that the seaons does not start until Sept. 8th and with pre-season the 21st may be better?

The closer we get to the end of Aug. more ppl will tend to be away as the end of Aug. is prime vacation time, so it is important to iron this out but not a critical issue at this pont. Time to do player and team homework to see what rookie will beat out a vet or who is injured in camp or pre-season. Watch the schedules for bye weeks when you think of your defense(s) you need to pick. You do not want two team on a bye that week...same goes for all players, not just team defense.

We have a forum set on the ESPN site just for our league as well as email too.

Check out the league rules and give the options we have a look over as we can edit prior to the draft.

So I pretty much ignored the "FFL" in my Firefox toolbar since running away with the title last season, but I got curious and clicked it a few minutes ago, and I got the following:

"You are currently viewing pages from the 2005 season. Click here to return to your 2006 League Office."

Upon following the link:

"Your League Manager has not finished setting up your league.

You can email your League Manager or return later"

So is it up to 404 to set the league up for this season or what? I'm game to take you guys to school again.

Seemed a bit early to set up the 2006 season.

There are some teams that will not return to the league and will need to be replaced. Looks like we would have to have a new draft again in order to keep it fair.

PH...I set the league up for 2006. ALl we need to do is eliminate a few teams...noting that they where fill in teams after some owners decided not to participate.

We will need to decide on if we do an all new draft again? If not, this will create an unfair advantage to some and screw over some that had taken over for the teams that will need new ownership.

It up though and ready to run as soon as it gets closer to the season.

The season can be changed so that week 17 is not a factor.

Not sure whats up with Bronco's Own...That was Asmodeus's team...have not heard from so I am assuming he is not playing. Plenty of time to get someone to take that spot.

Will be a new draft anyway, so that lineup will not be happening.

This is the current schedule:

SCHEDULE & PLAYOFFS
Regular Season Weeks 13 (Playoffs start Week 14)
Playoffs Weeks 4
Playoff Rounds 2 (2 weeks per round)
Playoff Teams 4

Bronco's Own will not be a factor. Still have time too...12 team two division setup this year. All in all, last season everyone stayed active and managed their team.

Any suggestions on the schedule? Lets decide now while it is early.

Technically yes...but I think the point is that by ending a week early it will have less players sitting due to clinching a playoff spot.

It just ends the regular season a week earlier & create a bye week more or less, as the playoffs would still be the same but with a week off between regular and post season play.

I see your entered into the league.

Currently we have 13, but I think that when the date comes for the draft, there will be a team that will drop and we will be back to 12 teams again.

I will not add anymore at this time as a few teams managers have not responded to the emails that asked if they would participate in this next season.

I don't understand this at all. We shouldn't have the championship game be played on a week where all the good players on good teams are sitting on the bench. Cutting the regular season short doesn't fix that problem in any way. When's the draft? My laptop got stolen so I never use the internet and I don't want to miss it.

No date has been agreed upon as of yet. Most likely the weekend prior to the start of the season like we did last year.

On another note....I understand the issue as mentioned with the good players on the bench for the last two to three weeks. With playoff spots clinched early in the season, NFL teams regularly do this to avoid injury. So how do we solve this? Just end the season earlier all together making the playoff's and championship in what would be the last or 2nd to last weekend of the season?

It may still carry over the problem of having a player benched to keep him from injury.

I did not get too much response on this subject, so I am not changing anything as of yet for the seasons schedule.

Give me some input on this and lets figure out the best formula for making it competitive!

Had not heard back from PJ and since we have 12 teams...PJ would have been 13 and I limited the league to a max of 12 so not to deal with the problems of having an uneven division.


Sorry PJ..if someone drops prior to the draft I will let you know.

Draft day will be on a Sunday. We can pick on 20th or 27th? any preferences?

EDIT: I have sent individual emails to each team owner. Please reply back to me at my email address and we can go from there. I have a good idea as to who will be back playing, yet a few teamsn I am unsure of....like Exotic or O.B. and his Bronco's Own team.

I will base the time on EST.

last year we did it at 12PM (9AM PST). or was it at 1PM EST? either way, not to waste an entire Sunday & it should take maybe a 1/2 hour. What works best for everyone?

I prefer the 12PM (EST).
I will go earlier or later depending on if there is someone with a real problem making this time.

I have not heard anything from Exotic or Amsodeus. Subj asked me to remove him from the roster, so if anyone wanted to join and play I could put you in charge of the teams open on the roster. Otherwise I will delet them and it will be a small league again. either way makes no difference.

08-26-2006, 04:00 AM
Dillon will be riding the bench by week 4 thanks to Laurence Maroney, and Owens may not even be ready for the season opener. On the other hand, Alexander doesn't have Steve Hutchinson to clear a path at left guard anymore. I'd still take Shaun though.

The Draft is this evening at 11 PM EST. We have many West Coast players and due to the lack of response on my emails, I picked a time of which would best satisfy the masses.

I did a free league draft this afternoon. Was in the draft lobby and just joined a public league for the hell of it.

Was the same layout as last years draft. Went pretty fast too. It will have the ranked positions and players available for you to use as a guide. Will eleiminate the players unavailable once picked.

It went fast. It will only go slow if you have no clue as to what you need team wise and do not know your bye weeks and players well.

Shouldn't take long at all.

Test your systems as well with the "Test your draft" link in the Draft Info window at ESPN...that is once you have logged in.

I cannot delete his team. The way ESPN has it set up now, it will not allow me to go into that team and make changes or deletions.

Dave AKA Exotic never showed for the draft, so I personally do not think he will participate either.

I would like to dump both their teams, but that means we need to re-draft again.

Any thoughts on what to do?

I do not even have Continuum on my system at home anymore. Never re-loaded it when I changed HD's.

Well at this point, I am unsure as to what we should do. Time is the problem since I get no replies back on email...only 1/3 of the teams have ever replied when emailed.

Without this and not knowing who can show for a new draft, it will most likely not happen and we will need two new managers to take over the spots already in place. Otherwise we can just assume that they will be on autopilot this season.

Such problems. Do we just can the season at this point?

F' It...I just dumped the draft we did. We will need to re-draft!

Sorry, but to make things fair I dumped the dead wood from the league.

DTF & Nickname will now have the chance to pick their teams in all fairness.

Broncos Own and Cin. Bengals are dumped.

I need P_L to contact me and I am not on Continuum to msg him for his email addy invite. If anyone can get that, it would be appreciated & we will have an even 10 teams. If we cannot get the 10th team, I will sit out and just monitor the season for you all. and we can just go with an 8 team league.

My team reeks of consistancy.

That much can be said.

edit: And no offense, but who are you to be talking shit?
You have Reggie Bush, who isn't even starting yet (still 2nd string to Duece). Tatum Bell, who despite running for Denver isn't gonna throw up huge numbers either. Larry Fitz who has far from lived up to the over rating they give him and his homie Boldin each year (afterall, they have warner throwing to them, and though they're always ranked top 10 each year, they always fail to put up top 10 numbers). Hines Ward who blocks more often than he catches, and who plays for a Bill Cowher team that will run 3 times as many it will pass. Tony Gonzo who has been on the downcline for the past 2 or three years, and a myriad of underachievers ranging from Mike Vick (he may run like the devil, but he still doesn't have a solid target to throw to...other than Crumpler) to Duece, who still has no line, to Eddie Kennison who is older than Terry Schaivo jokes.

Yeah, you have Peyton, and sure you have the Steelers D. Congrats.

At least my "B level" players have potential. Not to mention the fact that many of them are poised to have breakout years (Nate Burleson is now with the Seahawks, Caddilac is gonna have a breakout year, Drew Bledsoe's got TO, and lest we should forget the fact that Tiki Barber is predicted by many Sportswriters to have an MVP season.)

I'll take a bunch of players with room to grow and get better over your overrated band of losers anyday. Call me in a few weeks when Denver's banged up line fails to pan out, Reggie Bush realizes he can't outrun everyone in the NFL, Hines Ward is hurt...again, and Tony Gonzales is putting up 3-5 points a game.

Not saying I'm gonna win this year, but if my team blossoms like everyone's forseeing, then I should be in the running.

Was meant as a joke, since Reuben Droughns will not make the numbers as Westbrook will. Plus, if I remember, you made some remark on Westbrook, noting you didn't want him because he is from Philly or something like that?

Not like I will ever use S. Moss...I will keep him though, just on the bench until one of my other players gets injured or on a bye.

Dolphins, Juggernauts and Frogs already told me no on Sun and no after the 18th.

It's a no win situation for all at this point.

We can go a bit earlier on the 18th, but PH may now not be able to do that.

CT Athiests wanted it before the weekend of the 24th.

It's just all f'd up due to east cetral and west coast times and too many teams at this point.

I will remove the draft settings and when everyone can determine a day and time that works for everyone, as well as what days and times ESPN will have available for the live draft, we can continue from there.

No biggie...As I said, I am in two other leagues....I can wait if need be...just will suck if it comes down to drafting after the 1st or 2nd week of the season.

It's not forcing me out in the least...but I just offer that so that this can work for those who wanted to play. Not a big deal...seriously. I am outta here on vacation and just thought I would get this nailed down before I go.

Wait and see what up 1st...I put out messages to everyone and need to see what's up.

I am off on vacation come Thurs. evening, hence my wanting to nail this down as quick as possible on the day and time.

Sorry if I came across as somewhat arrogant about the situation, I just want to iron out the wrinkles so to say and make sure it works for everyone.

Sucks that I am limited on time to set this up,

They are down to 8 teams now, possibly less.

Nah..I am out. Frogs and Juggernauts have left too.

You got 6 - 8 teams still.

I have transfered the powers to Face and PH.

Personally it would be easier just to start a new league. If they can't remove me from being the creator, I will have to scrap it all together and a new league will be required regardless.

Alright, let's get to business. Post your status here, in this format, and let's see if we can make this work. Be honest.

In or out?:
Draft days/times you CANNOT make (and why):
Draft days/times you probably cannot make (and why):
Draft days/times you can technically make but just really don't want to make (and why):

PH and I will choose what we consider the best time and we'll see if y'all strugglers can get a decent turnout. If a ton of people don't end up drafting and don't have interest in the league as a result, maybe we'll scrap it, but I feel like it's worth a shot.

In or out?: in
CANNOT make: The weekend of August 10th (I'm going to be out of town.)
Probably cannot make: during the workday, est (probably going to have a job and shit)
Don't want to make: Friday/Saturday nights and Saturday/Sunday mornings. (I do stuff on those nights and use those mornings to recover from the things that I do. Additionally, if all 10-12 of you can make a draft at those times I'm not sure I want to associate with you as a group anyway. I might sacrifice a night out for my Subspace Fantasy Football draft, but my girlfriend hates both Subspace and fantasy sports, and would not stick around and watch me draft my team. Not going out AND not getting laid is not worth it, sorry douchebags.)

edit: also I would really prefer to have only established (or somewhat established) tw players/forumgoers in the league. i've had bad experiences with people's friends in fantasy leagues.

PH
08-02-2007, 01:56 AM
In or out?: In
CANNOT make: August 7th, and perhaps the days immediately before and after that. Moving into my new apartment on that day, and it may take a bit for the utilities to get turned on, DSL service transferred, etc.
Don't want to make: Basically what Face said. I'm not too keen on Friday or Saturday nights, I was just trying to make it easier for the rest of those involved since I know they probably have busier schedules than I do. Or did, at least. Whatever.

In or out?: in
Draft days/times you CANNOT make: Around august 19th or 20th (im not sure) is when i have to head back to college from summer break
Draft days/times you probably cannot make: meh I can find free time on my hands if I have too
Draft days/times you can technically make but just really don't want to make:look whatever your situation with your girlfriend is cool face, but i dont mind taking 1 friday/sat night off being that I practically do the same thing every weekend (get drunk/high/etc) and i have no problem missing it once, I feel secure enough that it doesnt make a less of a man of myself (you don't need to attack ppl for wanting it these days)

moving out of where im at the end of this month... so moving into another place beginning of next, so id like to stay away from that weekend (31st, 1st, 2nd)

aside from that, i enjoy goin out on nights as much as the next guy, but i can give a couple hours if need be. that being said, id rather have it some weekend late morning/afternoon. but i will work wiht pretty much whatever. also, if it turns out it is that weekend and i cant make it, i will fix my team over the next coupld weeks after. fine by me

Yeah, I guess I was a little too harsh there with the weekend thing. If I'm by a computer I can catch a draft on a weekend night, and if the consensus is to do a weekend night and I miss it, I'm fine to live with my autodraft.

STATUS for me and my buddy (the ltrain email) : IN

Days/Times : Weeknights after 5ish, weekends midday, preferably saturday. I can do weekends early but am not thrilled about that, but thats better than weekend nights, which is just dumb.


I know you're saying you don't want friends, but he's as legit as i am (as this is my second go around with this league, and i did Pallies football back when there was uh...pallies) so you can count on him not to bail, even if he sucks.

I don't move back up to College till September 11th, so anytime before that would be splendid.

Still only have 9 teams signed up. Face...did you check out the settings on the ESPN site. They are not set at all for this season...you guys may want to look at this and determine based upon teams how your setting this up.

You may also want this to be even, so that there are no bye weeks. Either drop a team or add one. Team 10 was supposed to have accepted the invite over a week ago...um yeh ok. never happened. W/o team 10 accepting the invite, the draft can not be scheduled. ESPN will not allow the TW Forums league to do anything until that is resolved. Either drop team 10 or find a replacement is my opinion on this matter.

Not that the draft has to be soon, but the time slots on ESPN that allow any league to do a live draft are vanishing quick. We may be forced to do a daytime draft during the week at this rate.

Alright, I've crunched a few numbers and this Sunday (the 19th) seems to be a favorable time for a lot of us. 404, I know that falls outside your limits, so I need to hear something from you soon. I'm all for getting this done as soon as possible with minimal scheduling conflicts, so I'm going to list all owners here along with their status for this Sunday at 10:00 PM Eastern time. If you can't make it at that time, please say so here and suggest a more appropriate time for you (be as specific as possible). And definitely correct me if my assumption of your status is incorrect. On with the list:

Squeezer - In
Nickname - Unknown
PH - In
Gran - In
Face - In
Aqua - In
404 - In
Zeebu - In
DTF - Assuming you're in
PJ - In

Well, since you're the first to respond with a suggested time change I'll pencil it in and we'll see if we can work from there.

The rest of you - same deal as before, just change 2:00 to 8:00 (I'm assuming PJ meant 7:00 Central time, correct me if not). The good news is this does fit into 404's schedule a bit better.

EDIT: I just changed our draft settings from offline to online and scheduled it for 8:45 PM Eastern time. That's as close as I could get to the 8:00 slot. The e-mail you guys will receive is just a formality, I'm only reserving this time slot in case we decide to keep it. It's not an official time yet, and there is still time to change it, but slots are going fast so I really hope this 8:45 thing holds up.
