Probably not Lego.

It will be unfair now we've done the draft.

But, like with all rules, I will open a poll and gauge opinions! B)

Remember, the $250 FA budget is for the season and (hopefully) any leftover should be transferred to next season, or ideally the FA/rookie draft (a lot depends on commish powers)

Aha~ I think you reminded me of something there Jimmy! The roster limit was 40~

That could be why I couldn't adjust the RBs/WRs limts~

But the poll is live on ESPN now B)

Moving both to 8 would be fine by me. 10 would let people have a monopoly of RB's.

Whats the plan with the schedule and playoffs Oli?

Do you think 6 going forward in a 10 team league is too much?

Not sure changing now would be good? Defo up the numbers into next season though. Quite a few sleepers still out there on O though.

Glad I don't have to do a 40 round draft every year though!!!

As I said, there's vote on the ESPN page B) But, if you both vote for other, I know those are both for 8.

As for schedule...

We have 14 weeks of regular season, so each team plays 7 home and 7 road (as home team gets +4 HFA). You will play you're division home and away. That's 3 home and 3 away to get left from intra-division of 5 teams. You will play same the position home and away annually. That's down to 2 and 2. Which will be cyclical. Which I will sort out tomorrow B) Make sense?!

Then for playoffs. It's going to be two division winners and two wildcards (from either division). Division winners get #1 and #2 seeds.

Hope that clears stuff up?! B)

Well I was fearing the worst after seeing Legos message but I'm surprised, I've defo had worse autodrafts. Got a couple of younger players I was aiming for

Gates & Graham at TE is the stuff that dreams are made of :lol:

Manning got 2 or 3 elite years in him yet, White & Maclin at WR, Mendenhall, Blount & someone I think will make the step up over the couple of years in Hunter

Concerns with WR depth & CBs but unsure on defensive points scoring... and going off the IDP league its random as hell anyway

Only thing I seriously dont understand is how the fuck it gave me 3 Free Agent DTs... :huh: <_< :rolleyes:

I know it was a mega draft, but it's still only a 10 team league... if you're looking at your team and you think it's weak, there is something seriously wrong. I think all the teams look good offensively, and like glynners said, D is random

Oli, I'm raising this now just in case it becomes an issue tomorrow morning and it looks like sour grapes!

DeAngelo Hall had 6 tackles (5 solo) and an interception yesterday, and got 6.8 points for it. 1 point per tackle (no idea where the 0.8 comes in) but the INT didn't register. The matchup is pretty tight so I'm flagging it now (though I think I'm gone to be honest, but you never know!)

Int = 3 points
Solo = 0.7 x 5 = 3.5 points
AssT = 0.3 x 1 = 0.3 points

Total = 6.8

So no issue mate :P

Sorry!

We're increasing the points for tackles in the off-season mind.

Cheers M@, I stayed up until half one last night, but must of dropped of a few minutes later. I did try and watch the game as-live this morning but the curiosity of finding the score out in FF got the better of me.

Thought you had turned the screw on Christmas Day with the numbers that Jordy Nelson posted

Nelson put me back in with a shout but was always going to be close and come down to if and how big the Saints won by...a fisting of the falcons did me no favours!!

Watched the first half but christmas excesses of food and drink and lack of sleep from watching all of SNF the night before killed any chance of seeing the 2nd half - but I went to sleep safe in the knowledge that I was going to lose lol.

Can people start having a butchers at the constitution and see if there's any glaring mistakes?!

As the post-season (and no football for months :() now we can do all manner of wheeling and dealing! As well as suggest/vote/ratify the rules ahead of the new season. So we can all be comfortable that the UDL year 2 will be bigger and better than every before :)

Also, I just adjusted the scoring on the ESPN website. To play around with it. See if the scoring on the constitution works. TBH, I think it does. The D actually matters now :lol:

Also, it has Jimmy beating JJ in the Championship Game :P

Just to let you know though. The inaugural Championship Game was still Jimmy beating M@ :P

So guys take a look around the league website as well. And let me know what you think :)

Oh, and I'll set a date and time (and waivers if I can!) when RBs/WRs/LBs etc all go up to 8...

Otherwise I could do it on the sly and nab extra RBs without you all noticing :P

So, I am proposing that on:

Sunday 19th February 2012 - 8 PM GMT (3 PM EST)

The limits will increase B )

A few things. First Jimmy you have mail.

Secondly, had a read through Constitution, musth ave taken ages that, good job. I noted a couple of things though:

The rosters section (4), you said players on IR don't count against the roster breakdown, do you mean they don't count towards the max number of a certain type of player? Last year my injured players counted towards my maximum number of players at a position.

I remember you saying you were changing some of the scoring, specifically tackles? You changed them yet? If so what to?

Are we going to consider upping the buy in? Personally I'd like to keep it at £5 for another year just to see how the parity thing plays out, afterwards I'd like to look at upping it.

Anyway those are my thoughts. :up:

Re: Constitution as a whole

I used Jimmy's original/others as the skeleton :P So cheers Jimmy mate ;)

-----

Re: IR slot.

What I meant by it is your roster is 40 players. When a player is declared out by the NFL, he can go to IR. Your roster is now 39 players. You can pick someone up through FA auction to make up to 40 players. When said player is off IR he has to go back to your roster (or cut). Your roster is now 41 players, so one player must be cut (or another go on IR). That's the IR (as I think you already knew that...just to clarify).

As for player max & IR. I think your wrong there Lego :P I will double check. But, example, the QB max (for now) is 3. I've got Alex Smith, Sam Bradford, Ryan Mallet, Matt Schaub (IR), Matt Cassel (IR) in my roster. I mean you've got 7 RBs and the limit is 6 :P

-----

Re: scoring

Changed to what I put on the constitution. So it's changed on the league website on ESPN too. I think it works a lot better. D and specialists are more in line with the offense. Have a look and see what you think too. It has slightly altered some of the results, but, we won't be changing them retroactively (sorry JJ! :P)

-----

Re: Payment.

I still think a fiver for now too.

-----

Re: Locker (Tom)

What you wanting for him?! Ryan Mallet?! :whistle: Alex Smith?! :ph43r:

-----

Commish Speaks:

I made a mistake when I adjusted the scoring on ESPN website. I didn't sort out the tie-breakers for the draft under the old scoring before I did. Positions 7-10 are sorted (due to playoffs). But positions 1-6 aren't. We can either go by the order I put out here or go for the order based on new scoring (with some results/records adjusted) and include in the tie breakers.

Let me know what y'all think.

Cheers,
Oli

I set some deadlines.

- A keeper deadline of 72 hours (aka 3 days) before the draft.
- Then the rosters will be frozen for 48 hours (aka 2 days) before the draft.

After this stage, all non-keepers will be in the draft pool, and unable to be claimed. However, in this stage trading of remaining players will be allowed (as long as it's even numbers involved in trades) as well as draft picks.

I could put the keeper deadline further back?! But, I do like keeping the keeper deadline till the last minute. And don't want to restrict it too much for people to add/drop people till last possible minute.

Even then though, it's hardly like you'll get a star contributor at such a late stage?! I mean, I reckon most of our 33s will be decided long before the official keeper deadline/draft.

Just my thoughts. What you think mate?! (and others)

P.S. Sorry if it doesn't make much sense <_< Lying in bed almost asleep :P

Fair enough, I'm just thinking like the Favre situation. He didn't decide he wanted to be a Viking till last minute. Basically the person that gets him in the UDL would be whoever happens to be online when its announced. It would be rare though so I don't think its particularly important.

Just seen your offer Lego, and I'm keeping my options open for a minute, but if I do decide to trade the player then your offer seems fair and something Id definitely consider.

With the draft order Ol, it doesnt affect me, but I think it would be fairer to go with the original point scoring as the order should be based on the events of that season. Your the commish, but thats my opinion.

I havent looked at how the new point system works properly, but you know your stuff so Im sure its all in the leagues interests. :)

I think the key was to make the defensive players as valuable as the offence, rather than roster numbers as they were this year.

Sometimes I played without filling all the slots as it didnt seem worthwhile dropping a player.

I think maybe we could do with more IR slots as sometimes as in the above instance, I didnt want to lose one of my team just to put a face in for one week. We have a roster nearly as big as the real NFL, and look at how many players they have out.

If we are having a Dynasty League, I like the idea of having it a squad game, where just like the real NFL, the side with the most depth comes to the fore, so Id throw out the idea of only using IR as in real life, but allowing a larger number of IR slots.

That would be a real test of roster management, and would allow us to build a squad

Thoughts ont that Ol?

Yeah mate. I'll be making all roster changes a week tomorrow at 8 PM. See above. Just 'cos if I did it now (or when I did the scoring adjustments) I'd have first dibs on extra RBs/LBs etc without y'all even knowing the numbers have increased :P Didn't think that would be fair.

As for your other points.

Yeah, the draft will be that. As you say (and I 100% agree) it's unfair to do it on effectively Y2 scoring. However, cos I'm an idiot and didn't sort out tie-breakers before changing the scoring (and subsequently completely forgot what the old scoring was, apart from crap <_<, to change back) we'll have to use the new scoring for tie-breakers (ie points for/points differential). But, not the end of the world.

And, aye. The new scoring is better. The D actually matters! :lol: And even the punters :towel:

Do like the ideas re:IR slots mate. However, ESPN is very hamstrung. And only allows max 4 IR slots. And their rules dictate that when a player is out, even for the one game, he's eligible. There'd be no way to really enforce "IR is solely for IR". But, I do agree it should be more about having a good squad and managing it. I'll have a look on the offseason for other FF providers, and maybe transfer the league over (a la Gilly). However, a] I like ESPN most out of all the FF sites I've used and b] it's good to keep it all in the one place (what with originals/others and auction).

Locker will usurp Brady this year though :whistle:

I'll give you this year's 7th for him + conditional next year. 6th if he throws for 2000+ yards, 5th for 2500+ yards, 4th for 3000+ yards, 3rd for 3500+ yards, 2nd for 4000+ yards, 1st for 4500+ yards. What you say Tom?! ;)

I know who I'm eying up 4th overall.

As I guess majority of the drafts will be rookies. I doubt there'll be too many FAs non-keepers to select. Especially early doors.

Aye :P 3rd mate overall. Sorry!

You all finished 5-9 in "old scoring" (see here). It's just the tiebreakers (NB couldn't do H2H 'cos unequal number of game between you 3, so was total points differential) with new scoring that made that come about. But, as it's cyclical you will be 3rd in the 1st round, but, 1st in the 2nd. So that's at least something :P

Oh, and I'll set a date and time (and waivers if I can!) when RBs/WRs/LBs etc all go up to 8...

Otherwise I could do it on the sly and nab extra RBs without you all noticing :P

So, I am proposing that on:

Sunday 19th February 2012 - 8 PM GMT (3 PM EST)

The limits will increase B )

Ooops...

Completely forgot about that :P

I'll do it at 12:00 PM today B )

OK...

Screw you ESPN!

:angry:

"You can not add slots after your league has drafted. You must reset the draft in order to do so."

"You can not decrease position maxes or change maxes that were previously zero after your league has drafted."

So, I can change the 2 x DE and 2 x DT to 2 x DL with no limit in the squad. Likewise, I can't change the 2 x CB and 2 x S to 2 x DB with no limit in the squad :chair: Even though it will be effectively the same number. That's just gay!

May have to save all rosters...as in write them down somewhere...reset the draft :blink: And make the adjustments.

Anyone else got any ideas other than that how I could go about it?! <_<

Sorry to :whore: but just looking through that option noted above...

Few teams have ineligible players in IR slots, and no free spots in their rosters. Therefore, if I was to reset the draft, and add the players back in manually. I couldn't do it. As I could still put players in IR manually, I think. However, when there are 41+ "healthy" players in a squad of 40. I couldn't put the extras to IR. So someone would have to be cut. Understand?! <_<

And I wouldn't want to cut players on behalf of a GM. Cos you may accuse me of underhand tactics when say, Ray Rice, gets cut by "The Decepticons" to make room for Knowshon Moreno out of the IR slot :P

So what I propose now lads. Is the limits will increase in the 48 hour hiatus post-keeper selection and pre-draft. See Section 8, Part iii of the constitution. That way, all GMs will have 33 players on their rosters. No more, no less. Give me a window of opportunity to then sort out the limits. And then the first opportunity to grab extra players, namely RBs/WRs/LBs, is the same for everyone in the entry draft.

Sound good?! :)

so we allocate our keepers by the deadline (but anyone else if we're feeling helpful to you) then you reset the rosters with redone position limits etc and any extras are all free game come draft time along with rookies.

Sounds good to me

Hi guys! Thought I'd bump this up.

I've been busy the past few days putting together a 'state of each franchise' that I'll post tonight when on my computer (or if I can get access to Google Docs easy from my iPad). Nothing too serious, just basically roster breakdowns for each team. Positions, total amount per position, total amount in roster, and how many players need to be 'cut' by deadline.

You'll have by the deadline in constitution to trim your roster accordingly. But, note any cuts made now will be available to pick up by other franchises!

Also, the limits for RBs, WRs and LBs will be increasing at this deadline. But you will not be able to add players this time till the draft. Was it 72 hours later??

Just a bit of difficulty arises now. I'd like to have it so you can roster manage now (cut players, add FAs or players that other people) cut before deadline. However, I can only do that with an activated league. However, when I activate I'll have to reset draft order and all teams (re-enter manually) and only chance I'll have to thus increase the roster limits. So I don't want to increase limits till the deadline. But in catch 22. Also, can't do this (reset and re-enter) cos of some squads larger than 40!

Maybe if we all agree to get our rosters down to 40 ASAP, then I'll activate the league. For roster management. Then just before draft, ie when rosters have to be 33 keepers, I save said rosters reset the league in the 72 hours before proceeding with the draft. Does that make sense?? It made sense in my head, but probably not outside of it. Lol.

True. I thought I included that.

Cos of that, everyone would message me with their list of 40. Well, basically, players X (Y and Z etc if necessary) they're going to drop. I'd do the necessary droppage behind the scenes. And reactivate the league with 10 rosters of 40 players.

Open for roster management now then.

But temporarily close/suspend/reset the league in the 72 hours preceding draft to confirm 33 keepers and increase the limits.

Again, hopefully makes sense. Looking over the state of the franchises, not much needs to be trimmed now TBH. I'll put the iPad down and get on my computer to sort it out.

Hope it makes sense? I think this will only be initial year teething problems as after the limits are sorted, we should have no problems with year on year...HOPEFULLY!!
Can be found here.

So state of play is:

Oli - cut 4
Powder - cut NONE
Tom - cut NONE
M@ - cut 4
Lego - cut 3
JJ - cut 3
Jimmy - cut NONE
Midget - cut 2
Glyn - cut NONE
Luke - cute 1

Please note though lads, this is just for ASAP. So I can re-activate the league and so you can do roster management. As well as initiate trades etc. You'll still have to cut down to 33 for end of August.

Cheers,
Commish

P.S. Tom, I was re-reading this thread earlier. You ever gonna get back to me on that Locker trade?! :P

7th this year plus conditional for next year.

I totally forgot about that trade offer...I'm tempted to accept it.

Pretty sure who I'll be taking #1 overall given my ageing collection in said position - assuming it's a Rookie-only draft? Or, at least, is mainly rookies seems no one is going to be cutting Arian Foster or Aaron Rodgers any time soon are they? :towel:

Aye, mainly rookies draft. However, look at the state of the franchises and you'll see that some of those players will be re-entering the draft pool. Like 11 players on my roster!! :ermm:

But as I said above that the early picks I would think would be the incoming rookie pool. Or stocking up on extra RBs/WRs/LBs, as it's the first time we can add to them with the increased limits.

Also,as for Locker trade. I said it first half jokingly, however, i would propose something like that. However, I currently have 5 QBs on my roster. With the limit of 4, one is getting cut ASAP. So don't know if I can afford to take another QB on. Even one as talented and gifted as Locker :P

Already know the 2 which I'm cutting to get my roster down to the later limit and about 98% sure as to who I'll be taking #1 overall.

If you do want Locker then I'll be waiting - still going to be Brady led, unless he suffers some season-ending injury.

Correct. Full draft order is here.

Midget and M@ got your nominated cutees (is that a word? Lol). Lego and JJ you need to PM me with 3 guys you're going to cut. Likewise M@ get in touch with Luke tell him he needs to cut someone....otherwise I'll cut Randall $36 Cobb! Haha. I also know which 4 guys I'm getting rid of.

When this is all sorted, I'll reactivate the league so we can get all wheeling and dealing again.

Cheers,
Commish
Me again...

Just seen M@ re-activated the Clan league and I had players in IR slot that carried over. So my roster was over limit. But still activated over said limit. So I can do roster management, ie cut the excess and pick up FAs no problems. But, if I want to do any management (bar setting of keepers) I'd have to get to 40 (or whatever it is in Clan league) roster size.

So I now propose tonight I'll reactivate the league. You're entire rosters should transfer over. You can cut players to make roster 40 or lower now, ie get players out of IR slots. Or you could keep them in IR slots till end of August where there has to be 33 players on your roster. But if you do the latter, you can't do any management. Cos it's an illegal roster :-P Understand?? Hopefully! Like M@ with your decisions of 4 players to cut now, you can wait if there's no one you want to pick up in FA.

Also, for this FA period, your budget should carry over. But remember, hopefully, any left over budget for FA from last year carries over + $50 (was it that much, I don't remember??) for next season budget.

Cheers,
Oli
OK OK OK...

So going through the settings on ESPN now as I look to re-activate the league.

I can do everything now without the need for re-setting it.

So, pretty much everything I said before is



:whistle:

So, final proposition from me...

I will re-activate the league Monday June 25th - 3 PM GMT (11 PM Korean time) with a] new scoring (although already in place following cock-up of forgetting tie-breakers :nono:) and b] extended limits as laid out by the constitution. Saying the specific time, as it's only fair to everyone that there is a set time in case there's a run on 3rd string RBs or 5th string WRs you may want to snap up :P

The next stage is getting the 33 keepers in by August 28th before August 31st draft.

Cheers y'all.

And sorry for the ordeal of this.

I think it's only Y1 -> Y2 problem. As the main thing which is causing the issue is the increase in limits. Other than that, everything should be gravy.

Y2 -> Y3 onwards should be right as rain.
Reminder for one and all that the league will be re-activated tomorrow at the above time.

Mainly a reminder for myself, as nae doubt will forget. So if tis not activated come 4 PM UK time, someone give me a heads up :-P
Sorry lads. Have complete and utter computer failure.

In so much as it won't even bloody switch on! :chair:

Will do it from work computer tomorrow. Cheers y'all.

Commish.
We are back LIVE with year two.

Roster limits adjusted and all.

:towel:

Good luck one and all.

I'll be chasing payment soon too :P

Just cut 5 FAs IRL dead weight and Ryan Mallet.

And managed to pick up Isaac Redman (He's the main guy with Mendyhall out, right?) And James Jones for training camp to see if they make the 33 man roster :towel:

FYI, the draft order is currently set as snake. As I have to manually order it, via LM 'trades'. If anyone wants to make draft trades (see other thread for entire draft order) before this is sorted. Confirm it with each other and PM me the details. I don't know when I'll be able to do it, as said above, computer is royally screwed, so likely be when I get a new computer :-P

Cheers,

Commish.

Likewise, schedule is random ATM, will sort it in accordance to constitution when access to computer for a long time!
Hi guys.

Draft order is SET rounds 1 through 7 (or 33 through 40!! Lol). Can you all look at your particular picks on ESPN and confirm they match up with the draft order [url=nfloutofhours.com/topic/540379/1/]here[/url]. Preferbly ASAP, but not essential.

You will see a lot of "from" and "via" on the draft page as well. You haven't all done late night/drunken trading of picks and forgotten about them. That's the only way I could do it to ensure proper 7 round draft, not snake. Some (especially Tom/Lego/Glyn) have more than others, cos I didn't get my head around your alternatitng 3 picks from round to round.

But, as I said. I think it's right, but could one/two/some/all of you just have a look to confirm :)

Working on schedule now. So hopefully that's live in wee bit too.

So, anyone who isn't an incoming rookie is far game. Like why Randy Moss got picked up, and I picked up DHB and Kam Chancellor.

Has anyone expressed an interest in a place in this league? I'm keen to cut down on this (and all my other) leagues this year, going to be offline for a good chunk of the NFL season and the team could be dead for 3-5 weeks. How best to put the word out?

Bump this so Oli sees. Also I take it we must have 33 keepers, can't keep 32 and get the first pick? I'd prefer we have to keep 33, to easy to cheat otherwise.

If you chose 32, I will pick a 33rd :P I've got 30 locked in myself, leaving myself last 3 at last minute cos can't make my mind up! Lol. But, they will be locked in, I ain't gonna get 3 picks all to myself at beginning of the draft :P

So, aye. Have to keep all.

That's why we've got a 72 hour break between keeper deadline and draft. To sort out all these kinks. Also give us all a chance to look at draft pool to draw up big board etc of who may/may not be around.

Also, Lego, for your post on payment thread. I'll do pics shortly and get to you. Been busy settling in to new place post-vacation.

Damn cutting to 33 was tricky!! Esp as I have a full IR so had 4 extra bodies to cut from the keeper list.
