was just thinking if Akin is getting tired of always having to do the thankless (although we all do thank him) job of weekly scoring we could adopt the same thing the flo guys did.  draft 15 and be able to trade or pick up waivers but not do any scoring till conferences or nationals where all 15 score. would also eliminate the problem of the 2-3 guys who don't submit 1 lineup all year, although they prob wouldn't care bout end of year stuff either.   i like our way better but is so work intensive for akin, although he does a great yeoman job.

There is another way to ease the burden of all that scoring from AKIN.  We could score our own  weekly team entries - and if anyone has any doubts or questions about the scoring, AKIN could act as "umpire" to resolve disputes.  We can all read, and we all know the scores and results - why does one person have to do all that scoring for everyone? 

What are we - a bunch of pampered Trump Cabinet members?

I agree and would be happy to help with scoring as well!

OR   each assigned another team to score so there is no suspect of hanky panky (a la the dnc/ clinton foundation)    we will prob do our own anyway and thus can double ck the one doing our team. then again some might be of the entitlement group of the last 8 years and want others to do and give us everything merely because we exist.  ;) ;) ;D

100% agree with this.

lol  was just an option in case akin didn't want to be burdened with scoring any more and not having a league.  i am not un p to date  with the disputes or personality conflicts  between TOM and Flo.  Personally i would like to see it run as always but didn't want to throw the baby out with the bath water for whatever reason is involved.  That crew is having a fantasy league.  Does that mean you don't want to have a fantasy league?

Title: Re: new season
Post by: LoSt on September 22, 2017, 07:07:20 PM
I don't like the idea of self scoring, and the problem with the buddy system is that some people simply aren't going to pull their weight.  Heck we can barely get everyone to submit lineups, is it realistic to think that people are going to do scoring for another team every week?

But I'm willing to try a buddy system if Akin is getting burned out, because its an unfair workload on him to do it all alone

good point but perhaps the few who every year never ever submit lineups even for nationals should take a year leave?????  anyway,  guess we should wait till akin checks in.  hopefully he will play even if he doesn't want to do the scoring solo.

Anyone heard from Akin?  We should probably think about getting this organized and finalized
Title: Re: new season

I sent him a text 2 days ago...he said he will be weighing in soon

I do not know what that means but not sure it matters.  The only question is - when do we start the draft?

This!!!!  and only need to know if keepers or not. 
Title: Re: new season
Post by: Jerry Callo on October 04, 2017, 04:10:40 PM
It seems to me if we are going to be a keeper league we ought to decide on that instead of voting every year to decide if our returning roster is worthy of being kept.  We might draft differently if this were a Keeper League and it does not seem to make alot of sense to draft one way and then in the following fall decide if we should keep who we drafted the previous year.

Having said that - since I had a senior laden squad last year - and no returning big name guys - I will vote NO for keeping anyone.    I like the fresh start - and the hope that everyone is in the same boat when we start. 
Title: Re: new season
Post by: YakRider on October 04, 2017, 05:07:16 PM
ok by me one way or another  just wanted to know 
Title: Re: new season
Post by: YakRider on October 05, 2017, 12:55:33 PM
i counted 11 different names.  would 12 be a good size???   just trying kickstart some thoughts and conversation besides me getting picks  1-3-5-7 of course   
Title: Re: new season
Post by: brycemus on October 06, 2017, 02:17:09 PM
I think we were a keeper and then we had a turnover and so new guys wanted to have everyone up for grabs.  Since that vote we have gone "non keeper" which is fine because that is how I plan for this.
Title: Re: new season
Post by: Jerry Callo on October 07, 2017, 10:09:01 AM
Makes sense to me. 
Title: Re: new season
Post by: Gage on October 07, 2017, 07:38:07 PM
I'm good with whichever way we decide to do this draft, and I will also help with anything necessary. Have tons of free time now.
Title: Re: new season
Post by: LoSt on October 09, 2017, 10:03:45 PM
Non-keeper seems like the path of least resistance to me. Although I had Nolf who I would almost certainly keep
Title: Re: new season
Post by: dutch134 on October 10, 2017, 08:30:08 AM
I agree.  I think keeper v non-keeper needs to be established for the following year before the draft as it will alter the direction some folks draft.
Title: Re: new season
Post by: YakRider on October 11, 2017, 03:46:03 PM
Any idea when we get rolling?  Guess we solidfy how many and set a time frame for draft. I am open to any time.
Title: Re: new season
Post by: Brew on October 11, 2017, 09:08:26 PM
Please check the first post....did i miss anyone?

That is 12....anyone else want in?
Title: Re: new season
Post by: Gage on October 15, 2017, 11:23:51 PM
Yeah, we should probably get this rolling ASAP.
Title: Re: new season
Post by: AKIN on October 16, 2017, 05:16:24 PM
From last season, I show the current list is missing:

Nywrestler
Regulator
Fadeout
V
 
I would assume V would be in. I will check with Ny to see if he is in. Brew, can you check with Regulator?
Title: Re: new season
Post by: Gage on October 16, 2017, 05:44:12 PM
If there is any issue with number of teams, like odd or something of that sorts, my dad will join too. He's done these a few times, just hasn't in a while.
Title: Re: new season
Post by: brycemus on October 18, 2017, 10:24:18 AM
I asked V to start a new board yesterday will remind him again today.

TOM rankings are out so we can update the big board as well.
Title: Re: new season
Post by: Brew on October 18, 2017, 11:08:49 AM
Regulator is taking a one year sabbatical due to a heavy work load.

I haven't spoken with Fadeout
Title: Re: new season
Post by: dutch134 on October 19, 2017, 12:30:39 PM
When is the first event?   Nov 2?
Title: Re: new season
Post by: LoSt on October 19, 2017, 05:01:46 PM
Lets try to kick this off next week maybe?
Title: Re: new season
Post by: YakRider on October 19, 2017, 08:21:58 PM
Assuming all the rules same as last year. Maybe, if he has time Bryce can draw the draft order and if it is to be done the draft board crafted??
Title: Re: new season
Post by: brycemus on October 20, 2017, 09:41:12 AM
I think this should be doable even with my being mobile all next week, at least for me
Title: Re: new season
Post by: LoSt on October 23, 2017, 07:46:45 AM
Is someone going to prod everyone and get this started?  I think Bryce and Akin have everyone's numbers

I can help out if needed, but I'd need peoples numbers
Title: Re: new season
Post by: LoSt on October 23, 2017, 10:11:56 AM
Also, are we doing a qualification system for NCAAs this year or is it just going to be regular season scoring which is more or less irrelevant and then NCAA championship scoring?

Personally I hate not having a qualification system because I think it takes all the strategy out of drafting, but I know that is what the league decided to do last year.

Title: Re: new season

I should be good to go
Title: Re: new season
Post by: YakRider on October 23, 2017, 10:32:55 PM
I can draft any day,any time. However, if guys aren’t into it this year then it will prob fall flat as participation will not take place. Draft usually takes a few days, so if there is enough interest we should get going pretty soon.
Title: Re: new season
Post by: Brew on October 23, 2017, 10:52:09 PM
I'm ready!

Akin and Bryce lets do this!
Title: Re: new season
Post by: dutch134 on October 24, 2017, 07:36:44 AM
Ready!
Title: Re: new season
Post by: LoSt on October 24, 2017, 09:35:49 AM
Does someone who understands google docs want to set up a big board?

It seems like we are used to AKIN running the show and he is MIA this year, so if we want to do this we'll need to figure it out ourselves.

If everyone wants to PM me their numbers I can do my best to help facilitate
Title: Re: new season
Post by: brycemus on October 24, 2017, 10:19:52 AM
Settle down kids. The board will be updated tonight with a draft order & the new TOM rankings. We can begin tomorrow. I am working on tearing down a building today & have a preview to write tonight, but we should be good to go. Someone give me the definitive participation list below

No V this year, eh?
Title: Re: new season
Post by: YakRider on October 24, 2017, 01:50:37 PM
idk    he didn't respond and he and fadeout didn't participate last year even for the ncaa's.   so i guess he isn't interested or is too busy with life.   i really don't know.   he just didn't respond as to wanting to play this year. 
Title: Re: new season
Post by: brycemus on October 24, 2017, 11:03:26 PM
The websites supreme potentate V almost certainly has other things taking up his time unfortunately.

I will set draft order after I finish the socon preview. Three teams left. Then I will strive to update the big board. Bear with me guys. Heck I need to write up my UTR questions for our next feature. It's a big one.
Title: Re: new season
Post by: LoSt on October 25, 2017, 09:49:21 AM
So, just looking to clarify here, are we going to have a qualifying system like we did in past years?  Or is it JUST NCAA points that are going to matter?

Trying to figure out if drafting for the regular season is going to mean anything
Title: Re: new season
Post by: brycemus on October 25, 2017, 10:18:13 AM
We will be going on the same rules for qualification as we used last year because we did not vote to change any rules
Title: Re: new season
Post by: LoSt on October 25, 2017, 10:39:49 AM

Which, if I'm recalling correctly is that there are no rules for qualification, and everyone qualifies.  Right?

Last year everyone qualified for the NCAA's - if that is your question.
