It is season 2 for the ProgRockers Fantasy Football League and it is about that time to start hashing out all the details for this upcoming season. First off let's congratulate ManofMyster again for a well played season last year. Secondly, I am going to assume that everyone who played last year is still wanting to participate this year, so unless stated otherwise, you're in. For anyone who missed out last year and would like to join this year PM me with your email address and I'll send you an invite. (We use yahoo's free service and I think you may have to create a yahoo email to login ( also free)).

Also a reminder. There is a trophy of sorts; it is a perpetual plaque that shall be sent to this seasons winner with their name engraved in the respective spot. The condition being that you get to have the plaque all year until a new champion is crowned, then it is your duty to get the new champions name engraved and mail it to them. ( It doesn't cost much, it is a little brass rectangle and there are tons of engraving/trophy shops around any town ) If however, you would rather not be bare that responsibility you may opt out and I will keep it another year until someone would care to take it... I will post a picture of it with MoM's first spot showing, give me a day or two on that though.

Ok down to business. Last year there were a lot of complaints about the scoring system so in order to keep things as fun and fair as possible let's see if we can discuss each and every category until a consensus is reached. The only thing I am not putting on the table is it being a keeper league, which it won't be.

For organizational sake I am going to post the scoring categories and league setting below in another post.

Below is a chart showing last years points system. It also shows Yahoo's default points, which I think last year people would have preferred the defaults. Other things besides points to consider is the Roster Positions. I myself think that part is solid, but if you got an idea shout it out. Another thing is playoffs. I can go either way but I know a lot of people prefer to have some sort of playoff system. (on a side note we should really get a post season fantasy thing going when the time comes...) Also the can't cut list, does't bother me so it stays unless some people do not want it. Draft pick order is also something that should be considered... should it be random or based on last years ranks, and if so can we trade draft positions. I vote for anything other than random, and would prefer to use last years wins/points/stats somehow....

I had a ball last season when I didn't think I'd like it.  Definitely glad to do it again.  Smile

I'm in again and the scoring rules look good, except that IMHO we should dock a point for missed field goals.

I'm happy to see that the plaque is in good hands. I'd thought that it had fallen into the hands of some evil FedEx warehouse employee and would never been seen again. I suppose, as the defender, I will join again despite my hatred of the NFL.

Glad to see you guys again, last year was fun.  One thing I remember I wanted to change was the field goal points.

To MoM, the UPXstore called me about a month ago and apologized for the extremely late response. At fist i thought it was because of the pseudonym, then I thought I got the address wrong, but in the end I'm not surprised it was the incompetence of the shipping industry... any who it is in good hands and I may have  to replace the main plaque.. the "Foot Ball" is annoying the hell out of me. It will be replacedbut it would be cool if we can all come up with a phrase/saying/quote that we can all agree on. We got all season + a couple months to decide but a significant naming thingamajig would be cool.....

The first 2 times I ever played I won the title, and last years (this league) I was a force of nature until everyone just stopped performing.... Angry

So when is the draft?  If you would like suggestions, it is best to wait at least after the 3rd preseason game.

For sure. I've been a little busy lately, my wife is pregnant for the first time and yeah it is a bit hectic at the moment... but I assure you I'll get my head in the game when preseason starts then we'll get everything all hashed out. Draft to be expected late Aug to early Sep. I like cutting it close.

Count me in for this year's league if you still need players. Is this a live draft or pre-set?

Changed a couple of things.

Kickers lose 1 point for missed field goals/point afters.
Playoffs are now the last 3 weeks (14,15,16) and is a 6 team playoff.
No waiver rule exists.
No playoff reseeding.
Only 3 acquisitions/week.
Trades/pickups reviewed by commissioner.

Also, Raven Maniancs, Kobaia Crusaders, and Brian Rolls Theorem haven't re-uped.
That is it for now. Any ideas on a draft date?

So we are drawing near for the draft date. I suggest Aug 25, this upcoming Sunday. I'm on the west coast, the minority, so someone from the east shout out a time and we'll roll with that...

Also KobaŁ´a Crusaders and Raven Maniac have yet to sign up... and we'll need both of you to sign up otherwise we got uneven teams... so if anybody here could tell me the respective forum members so I could PM that would be great.
