TR Football 2014

Postposted on Wed Jul 30, 2014 4:33 pm

I'm running around like a crazy man trying to get stuff done for this weekend in the Adirondacks. I'm in Arlington, VA next week for an FDIC training session (Cloud Computing and Virtualization, if you must ask, from the viewpoint of examiners) and then I will have time to relax and get the great creaking machinery rolling again. I'll start with Keepers and invite everyone back. If you want out of Keepers, please post in this thread. If there are drops, newcomers will be first come first served, so if you see a drop and want in, say so in this thread and PM me an e-mail for the invite. Newcomers will get the team of the dropper. If there's multiple droppers, it'll be first-out to first-in matching and so on down the line.

Invites will likely go out Monday (Keepers) or Tuesday (all other) night of next week. Invites will contain draft info. Since no one really lobbied to move away from Yahoo, this whole mess stays on Yahoo. I shudder to think how they've messed up the UI from last year (and the year before ...).

Now to avoid the West African Ebola outbreak on the airlines as 50-odd African heads of state descend upon DC this coming Monday for a summit session with the Pres, several of whom will hail from countries with raging epidemics.

Ahoy, Captain.

Please to be adding me to the waiting list. (And sweet jeebus, don't catch anything on your trip!)

(EDIT: Apparently I got too excited for the impending (fantasy) football season, and there was a reading comprehension fail on my part. Will keep an eye out for any posts on this thread regarding people who don't wish to rejoin, and send the appropriate PM if and when there's an opening.)

There's always room in a non-keeper league. The only reason I start this up now is because there's some minor arcana in the Keeper league that tends to chew up time.

I'd be interested in either/both leagues. The more fantasy football the better!

Keeper would be my preference, but if a single season redraft league is ultimately the only option, I'll go with that.

Does anyone happen to know if Yahoo still has a limit of 4 leagues?

I'll be back in one of the other leagues just to prove how hard it is to do this from the other side of the world.

I'd do just as poorly in a fantasy footy league.

Invites for last year's crowd in open leagues will go out tonight.

OK, so it was this morning. I sent invites to TR Bounties. If anyone gets the invite and wants out please let me know and I'll redirect it to someone who was in Open Season last year. I'm trying to avoid having a rump league of 6 massively-stocked teams.

As for the BBQ league, that's up to FroBozz.

McLaren Mercs are on the board. I will confess, however, that I've lost my faith in fantasy football. Last year I was on another 8 team league on nfl.com with other I know IRL. Anyways, one of the players that has better things to do in life other than manage his team didn't touch his team at all. Autodraft, didn't change out players in bye weeks, didn't manage injuries. Guess what - he won the league. The other 7 of us put tons of effort in micromanaging, and yet the person that didn't touch his team - AT ALL won. I can't remember what position in the draft was, but I'm guessing that because it was an 8 team league, everyone had a good team to start off with. At least I keep trying to make excuses for why I couldn't beat an absent player.

Don't worry. I won't let a zombie team win. It'll get locked out if it goes on too long.

FroBozz:

Need to reschedule that draft date in the BBQ league, which is currently set for 6PM EDT on 8/13. Way too early to be drafting.

Yeah I know I renewed several leagues but have not edited the draft times yet. Possibly later on today or this week I'll update it.

I've got two who have yet to re-up for Bounties, namely Kevin (Evil Overlords) and Arsenal Football. If you don't get it done by Friday, the spots will be made available to others.

EDIT: I've got one spot open in Bounties for sure as Kevin has bowed out. I have a PM out to someone who replied to my original start-up post to figure out if he's looking for Keeper or open leagues, but there should be another spot waiting based on the lack of response from Arsenal Football (and they even beat Man City in The Shield game)

FroBozz, if you can find someone for my BBQ league slot (Damage JR??), I think I'll bow out. I signed up for a league with a friend of mine and I think I bit off more than I can chew there. 9 offensive starter, 12 defensive starters (!). I'm scouting LB and DB like crazy.

Dude, get a life.....that is too much work..........also, why would u bow out of the BBQ league, out of all the leagues; who will I talk smack to now (besides frobozz)?
Also, didnt a you lose a game one year to a "ghost ship" team that wasnt managed? lol

P.S. Pro tip for you - draft Michael Vick lol


On a more serious note, dont forget the pick-em and survival leagues.

Fixed. Had to search for it as Yahoo makes it hard to find.

OK, this is now an open call for anyone who wants in. PM me an e-mail addy and you'll get an invite to Bounties. I'll go to 12 teams in Bounties before opening another league (which will take at least 5 commitments plus me), which means there's about 4 spots for this year's TR open league(s). Yahoo really doesn't like odd numbers.

EDIT: Why is it that every year I feel as if I'm trying to lead cats across water?
