TR Bounties 2017

Wed Aug 02, 2017 2:19 pm

Invites went out this AM to all teams from last year. If you're out let me know here and I'll offer the team to someone else.

Got the invitation email, but I'm not going to play unless it'll lead to an odd number of players. I've just so fallen out of touch with the NFL that the players are just names on a screen at this point.

If someone else wants to jump in, please do.

You want to run it, it's yours. Only reason I play these days on Yahoo is out of duty to Stiffie, from whom I inherited the leagues, the mod title, and the job too many years ago (as in I don't even have backups of the weekly write-ups I did for my first couple of years running TR Football. Think I lost those to the 75 GB DeathStar). Golf and hockey died and now it's just football, baseball, and the NCAA brackets.

OK, I've gone and said it. Once the leagues are up and running, if anyone else wants to take over, I'll gladly pass the torch. If there's one thing Yahoo makes easy, that's it. As derFunk has said in this and another thread, the games are passing by many of us.

What are the responsibilities for running the league? I've never managed a league before...

For Bounties it's setting it up, sending the e-mails, and badgering people to join before the draft date to make sure we have an even number. Keepers is whole pile more work in the bowels of Yahoo.

Alright... assuming we stick with Yahoo (or Verizon doesn't shut it down), I can take over commish after the draft :)

Can do. Just remember next year, when Yahoo asks to auto-renew, click Yes. The reason I didn't is because it was early July and WAAYYY too early to be blocking Yahoo ads just to see FF stuff [/s , though minimally].

Just for the record, we did ESPN in the office last year. That makes Yahoo look pristine, almost Jobsian, by comparison.

It shouldn't be that hard and, for pickup Yahoo leagues like Bounties, it really isn't (see my sales pitch there?). I shudder at the thought of a keeper league in the ESPN system, though.

That said, I'm still honked that Yahoo didn't warn me that not accepting auto-renew meant league deletion. Took me 3 weeks just to gather the strength to find the data. I'll never get a parachute like that.

Just to remind last yeat's Bounties members: When you renew a league, Yahoo assumes that all managers will be participating. If you've received the notice and want out, let me know soonest. No one has logged in since the renewal notice was sent.

Odd. Managers' list still shows no updated actions. Might be you actually have to "do something" to change that date, though I have no idea what "something" is.

The Yahoo Fantasy app shows that I'm "in" the league (despite my protests... :lol: )

This is my first go 'round with Auto-renew and I'm feeling rather like Marvin at the moment.

Well, leave me for now. I'll play if there is otherwise an odd number of teams. I don't see a way to exit the league on my own.

In preparation for taking over next year, I've been looking at alternatives... looks like the best option is a pay option ($270 per league).. the next one is a semi-free (free if you don't mind ads, or pay for a subscription and block all the ads on the site), no frills, looks pretty straightforward. Not sure how well it will perform.. It's called fleaflicker.com if anyone wants to check it out.

I know DerFunk wanted out, but we've got 9 teams right now and need one more by this time tomorrow (Tuesday). PM me an e-mail addy for the invite and you're in.

I might be late but I consulted a few "top 200" lists and put together a few rounds worth of picks, I hope. Soon as I get home I'll join the fun.

Oh I mis-translated 6:30 Pacific as 8:30 Eastern, not 8:30 Central. I should be there.
