Not sure if we already have a thread for this year, if I missed it just let this one die.
I just became the commish for one of the leagues. I would like to change the draft date to one week earlier so I can attend the live draft. Anytime before Aug 30 would work for me. Anyone in the league please let me know how you feel about that. We also have openings, I think I just need emails to invite. This is my first time as commish so LMK if I need to do anything like change settings.

Congrats. Who did you take over from and what is the name of the league? We had two last year.


And I don't think we started a thread yet for this year.

Last year's FFL thread

Last page (3) has some suggestions for changes for one of the leagues which should be discussed.

IIRC,

A) Drop QB points
B) Bump PPR points (go a full point per reception).
C) Changes in Waivers

Which were the discussion points.

I'd also like to make sure that this year the DEF/ST gets points for their TD's!

Merbill is for our group (of 12 last year), so you were in the other group with joelsisk.

IIRC, our league is Return of the Wine Wooters.

I renewed the Return of the Wine Wooters league. Look for your email invites and sign up.

Those of you interested in joining one of these unofficial woot leagues for the first time, please post your interest here. We always have a few slots open up before the draft.

If you guys can't happen to fill either league I could be enticed into joining, though I am already in 3 leagues and don't really need a fourth.

I also run a pick'em league in the pursuit of the almighty dolla. $35 covers the full season. Weekly prize for best record and season prizes for top 3 overall records. If anyone is seriously interest, feel free to PM me for information. I try not expand the league too much and is mostly limited to co-workers, ex-coworkers, clients, friends, etc. I think we had somewhere between 40-45 people last year, so if I happen get a huge flood of PMs and ignore your's it is because I am limiting the league.

In the WW2 league, 7 teams out of 12 have rejoined. If they don't all come back, there will be openings for newbys. Not for a couple of more weeks, tho. No rush. NFL kickoff is Sep 4 or 5.

Have to get my tail in gear and sign up. Have to do it from home, as blocked at work. And I don't think the phone app will let me sign up. But will try that.

Steps to get the ball rolling.
1. Set up date and time for live draft
2. Once all teams have joined finalize your league which is at the bottom of commish settings. At this point it will make you either auto-randomize the draft order or pull names from a hat and set it up yourself.

I got the time and date done. I would think the auto random is the way to go. Can we get that order early so we can plan? I didn't finalize yet but we have even teams and draft is a little more than 2 weeks away.

You can get the order after you finalize teams.

My son and his friend would like to join us from his league, since it's just the three of us there.

That's fine. As the Good Witch said to Dorothy, "you had the power all along". The League ID number is at the top of the league scoring & settings tab (I don't see a password, so I guess we don't have one, although you can check the email you got from the league when I renewed it).

4 Managers from last year have yet to rejoin: HAK (I think he's been a little busy lately), Alexa84, tytiger, and pengu1n. I hope to hear from them soon.

Maybe we'll keep you as a robo-team. It'll be like a second bye week during the season

I think you can drop yourself, like the team in the other league did. I hate being the grim reaper.

No need to rush. I probably won't finalize until the last weekend. Some people like to know their draft position early, but not knowing until an hour before the draft is exciting too.

I hate not knowing. After I find out I do a ton of mock drafts and take notes. Then comes draft day and I end up doing crazy things and the mock drafts were really no help. But I still like to know.

Still waiting for them (and HAK!) to join.

In the meantime, I think I'm going to throw the league open to the unwashed masses, especially since the other league is now locked. Use the invite link here:
Invitation URL

We have 8 teams (10 if Sparky's invites come through). I'd prefer 12 (or even 14, but no more than 16). We must end up with an even number of teams since its head-to-head, so last one in could get bumped.

Its also OK if the members of the other woot league want to join, as long as they pledge to be active in both leagues, not just the one they're doing better in.

Sorry, sent them the wrong type of invite, and re-sent it to them today.

Wait, I thought we were un-even with HaK. If you joined, why are we back to 11?

Hey Merbill, what's up with the negative scoring changes to Kickers and Def/ST's???

And it would be nice to discuss and vote on them, especially when they aren't the usual default rules.

I put in negative points for missing XP's and FG's under 40 yards. If players can lose points for fumbling, then kickers can lose points for failing in thier job too. It will have a very minor impact since kickers rarely miss short kicks.

With the defenses, since we're counting return TDs this year in the Def scoring (not yahoo default, btw), I reduced the points allowed bands to partly offset it.

Anyway, in league news, we have 12 teams, so I've closed the league and randomized the draft order. Check the league page and see where you're at. If you wanted to draft last, sorry but I got that.
