2012 Fanasy league
« on: August 24, 2011, 02:42:40 PM »
It's about that time again. This year the plan is to run only one fantasy league with 15 teams. The list below is the guys that have been contacted about participating in the league this season. The choices were made by looking at past participants that were able to stay up with the league all season, for the most part. I know that there are some that were in one of the two leagues least season that were interested in being in again. At this time, I do not see us running two leagues again. Running two leagues is a ton of work, and last year we ended with what could have been one league due to all the guys dropping out. Sorry if you are disappointed. Maybe next season we will go back to 2 leagues, if there are another 15 guys that are committed to staying with it.

When is the tentative start date for the draft?  Lots of active legal dates to iron out...

We need to post the rules so that we may vote on potential rule changes....just sayin'....I'm not sure how I feel about scoring every single match.....need to noodle on it.

Why should people who don't pay attention to scheduling be rewarded is my only question?  When people learn to draft worse wrestlers with cake schedules the league turns into something completely different. 

Does being a champ give me any more weight?

Any more weight in what? How rule changes are voted on? No.

I am thinking the draft will start either the week of Oct 17th or 24th. Whichever one works best for everyone.

Gage, at this point you are not in the league. You are on the stand by list, along with a number of others. But right now if Lost and Tehgratest confirm that they want to play, then the league is full. Sorry, but I could not accomodate everyone in a single league, so there were some guys that got left out. Maybe we will run 2 seperate leagues, but this year, 1 is all we will run.

The league is now set with all 15 guys confirmed. If you are on the list this year, sorry. We could not accomodate everyone with just one league. IF we get enough guys to have two quality leagues next season we might re-visit that option.

I would just like to throw my hat in the ring for the Stand-By List/or hopefully 2nd League.  If we can get enough people to start a separate league that would be amazing.  We've still got a decent amount of time before the draft would start to recruit participants.  Plus we could pencil in all the others guys already on the Stand-By list for the 2nd League. 

Akin-Do you have a rough number as to how many possible entries we may have for a 2nd League at the moment??

If TWT doesn't get back up and running I may be interested as well.
To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

Right now, I don't know that I would be abel to deal with a 2nd league. I am starting a new job next weekl and I don't know how my time is going to be. Also, you would really need 15 dedicated guys to make the league work. If TWT is not up and running, I guess there would probably be some of the guys from there that would want in. So basically I am saying that right now, I don't know. If there are 15 guys that want in, I may be able to run a 2nd league, but I won't know the answer to that for about 2 weeks. I am not absolutely out on the idea, I just need to figure it out.

It seems like they have a few league commissioners over there.  I'm sure the same could work here as well.

That is a good point Cicero. I know if something happened to TOM it would be great if another board gave us a home so we could still play.
