hey Ekker, i might have to give up my slot. My family is having a money league and I'm involved with three other leagues to begin with, so if anyone wants in you should give them my place. If you can't find anyone I suppose I can stay in.....

if that's 12pm then you'll be able to make it (draft's at 2pm). if its AM, then be sure to set your rankings since you'll be on autopick.

you're drafting 12th - and since its a snake format, you'll take consecutive picks (12&13, 36&37, etc.)

good luck

Ekker, is there a way to make the playoffs week 14, 15, 16 instead of 15, 16, 17? Playoff teams are going to bench their important players on the last week so that might be a little tough to work around.

Sorry to bother the forum with this but a dozen of us are in this league. I just have 1 quick question on the payout system...

What is the payout system exactly, and for the website we are using, if you win money, how are we going to take it out? I read up on the website a little bit and it says we all have to vote YES on the payout system.

Please mods leave this up on the main page for a couple of days so we can get an answer. My CPU went POOF the other day and I had to wipe everything and I lost all my files. Thanks!

winner gets paid by leaguesafe (where our payments went). i enter who gets the payout based on how teams finish, then managers can log in to approve what i entered. (dont worry about managers voting, it didnt happen last year either since those that didnt win didnt care. as long as someone votes yes, its good).

hope that helps - and feel free to use the league page if you have any other questions. there's a number of options for payment - direct deposit, they send you a check, etc. its up to you.

everything should be covered here: http://www.leaguesafe.com/FAQ#29

peace

for those interested, thanks for posting.

this league has been going on for something like 4 or 5 years. its been a pain in the butt organizing it: trying to get everyone to join, making sure everyone can make the draft, making sure everyone pays on time, etc.

its work.

being that it was taken off the CTB main screen, its gonna be tougher than ever, so i don't think i want to commish anymore. in any case, here are my requirements:

AT LEAST 12 managers (8, 10 manager teams are so loaded with big names, its not even fun anymore)

EVERYONE must stay till the very end

AT LEAST a $25 buy-in

but like i said, if someone with decent organizational skills wants to take it over, its all yours. don't think I'm down anymore.

Can't someone with more than 50 posts just make a new thread? I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to find 12 people

who would like to play. As far as the draft it was only tough last year because yahoo crashed the day we

were set to go. Other than a couple people quitting half way through I thought last year was a lot of fun

step 1: getting 12 COMMITTED managers

step 2: making sure everyone pays before the draft (or pays period)

step 3: organizing a draft date/time everyone can make

step 3a: managing to find new managers for those that randomly can't make it or won't pay

its tough work man and I'm passing on that headache this year.

that being said, if anyone wants to take the reigns and start this up, I'm down for a good season. this league has always been fun. (except for the fact that my trades have been vetoed 2 years in a row. booooo.) lol

If we can't get 12 teams to pay, would anyone be interested in just playing for free? Might be easier to manage..

I'm in and I'll do whatever.

Also, I'd recommend we use the same site we did last year for the payout system, where everyone has to go ONLINE and pay for the league PRIOR to the draft. If you aren't paid before the draft you SHOULD be booted immediately, no if ands or butts.

So I'd get 12 people to do the league, then get a few guys on standby to get ready to jump in at the last moments notice if people need to step out and can't pay.

Because I do believe last year someone didn't pay at all, and ended up winning or placing for money and they just took out less money to compensate for not paying at all. Honestly it's fine in the end, but it's still pretty ridiculous someone can't drop in 20-25$ to a secure website over the course of like 4 months to pay the league entry fee, or even send someone else the money so they can pay for them.

I've never done it and honestly not very organized. I could be

down if there were 12 solid commitments and no one else had

any interest in being commish.

the only thing that worries me is getting a draft date/time that everyone can be present for. that's always tough since people end up saying they can't make it days before the live draft. then its a huge headache.

Lets just set up a date now so everyone who is in knows well in advance. I'd say Thursday August 29th 7:00pm PST.

It would also give people 3 weeks to send in their payments.

Looks like we're up to 8 teams, so if 4 more commit we'll be good to go...

what do people think of potentially using NFL.com. id like to potentially give it a try this year. otherwise, we could just do ESPN again. (no Yahoo. they've screwed us over tooooo many times)

I prefer espn myself but it doesn't matter too much to me.

I really didn't like ESPN and I'd prefer to use YAHOO. Yahoo screwed not only us but everybody last year as Fantasy Football saw a huge spike in participants. I'd say we set up a draft day and time for Yahoo, and set up a draft day and time at ESPN or NFL for the same day and exactly 15 minutes later JUST in case.

I'm down for whatever, 20-25$ buy in again? Use the same pay website we used last year and same settings basically?

Remember, defenses need to get points for INT and Fumble return TD's, punt return TDs and Kickoff return TDs. There should be no defensive players allowable to be drafted to get Tackles and so forth, and Return Yards shouldn't count either. I'd also recommend we have a -1 point for missing a PAT or a field goal and ZERO points should be awarded for receptions and rushing attempts, passing attempts etc.

ok then.

i bit the bullet and started a Yahoo league, guess i've been suckered into potentially being commish again.

SIGN UP HERE:

http://y.ahoo.it/mcUtykoP

BE SURE TO READ THE BOARD: on the league homepage for information. i need everyone's cooperation this time around. don't be stubborn with the draft date/time, since I'm putting what works for me.

also remember this is a pay league. we did a $25 buy-in last year so that's the minimum (but id prefer upping the ante this time around - we'll figure out/confirm that out on the league page in the coming weeks. just be ready to shell out 25 though)

once we get 12 players signed up on the league site, ill consider the league confirmed and will post the leaguesafe info for payment.

please don't dilly-dally and put it on the back burner. the quicker, the better/easier for everyone involved.

thanks.

I can draft anytime that week or weekend except for Thursday August 29, afternoon/night and Monday August 26. I will join and pay $25 if the draft can be held any other time that week or weekend. Sorry about that.
