Has it been decided yet on whether just how many keeper slots we will be designated from year to year? Two or three slots sounds good me.


No, that will be decided by league vote when the league fills. I prefer 3 keepers myself. That is, from what I understand, is the usual number.

Since Kmart hasn't logged on yet, and mineral has, I have bumped mineral up into Kmart's slot.

I will send the next invite based on who is online at the time when mineral joins the league and is all set.


Ahem! mineral? Check your hotmail. :twisted:

After repeated IMs, PMs, and emails, I finally relented and joined Billy's league today. :lol: Sly's Sluts are in the house! Since my other team names are Sly's Hos, Sly's Bitches, and Sly's Wenches, I thought that I'd keep the theme the same. hehehehe.

The league is now half full.

So far:

P_T_Bruiser, TheRealWags, Oklahoma_Lion, Slybri19, Murtyle, mineral, and a guy from TLF ( TenaciousA) have joined up.

I am still waiting for Rhys_Pieces, Kmart, and sweetd20 to login to Lionbacker so I can send them out their invites.

That will put us at 11 of the 16 teams. I can drop that back to 12 if neccessary. I like the 16 team format for this league though. That way each team plays all but 2 teams once before the playoffs. 14 teams would be perfect. But, it would unballance the divisions.

I decided that I like the 14 team league better. So, I decreased the number of divisions to 2 seven team divisions.

Now, each team will play every team once in the regular season.

Regular season will be 13 weeks long.

Playoffs start in week 14.

Every team will make the playoffs, ( I personaly despise this idea. But, it is the only way I could make it work), with the top 2 teams getting a 1st round bye.

Just needed to update this since I re-set the league to 14 teams.
8 teams are signed, sealed, and delivered.

I'm still waiting on Rhys_Pieces , Kmart, Pablo, and sweetd20 to login.

That puts us at 12 spots committed to.

2 spots are still up for grabs. 1st come 1st serve.

All the teams have now been claimed.

I just need to catch Pablo, Kmart, Rhys_Pieces, and sweetd20 while they are logged on so I can send them their invites. Then we can set a few settings that can't be set before the league is full.

The Following is a listing of who owns what team (Lionbacker/TLF name followed by Team name):


P_T_Bruiser ------------ Raleigh Headstompers
TheRealWags-----------Wag's Warriors
Slybri19-----------------Sly's Sluts
Oklahoma_Lion---------Silver Rush
Murtyle------------------Mashed Potatoes
Mineral------------------Riverview Buccaneers
TenaciousA-------------Osama the Llama
CMWSR-----------------Team Walker ( you can set a team name of your chosing if you wish)
Chazmaster------------Beach Bums (Welcome to the world of being a fantasy junkie)
Pablo------------------- Pending registration. ( You need a new home computer Pablo) :P :lol:
Kmart-------------------Martha Stewart Everyday Inmate. ( :lol: )
Rhys_Pieces------------Kingston Krushers
Sweetd20---------------Team Seaman II ( you can set a team name of your choice if you wish)
BillySims----------------Ionia Tormentors

A league setting to explain:

Head coach stats;

PWM = point win margin
PLM =point loss margin

Team Win = 10 points.
Team Loss = -5 points.
25+ PWM = 1 point.
20-24 PWM =1 point.
15-19 PWM = 2 points.
10-14 PWM = 3 pionts.
5-9 PWM = 4 points.
1-4 PWM = 5 points.
1-4 PLM = -1 point.
5-9 PLM = -2 points.
10-14 PLM = -3 points.
15-19 PLM = -4 points.
20-24 PLM = -5 points.
25+ PLM = -6 points.

I set the points added/subtracted on the margins of Victory/Defeat based on my belief that it takes a better Head Coach to find a way to win the close games than to win the blowouts.

Conversly, if a Head Coaches team gets blown out, he simply did not have his team prepaired to play that week.

Word to the wise, if your coach blows his opponent out each week, he will NOT recieve as many points as a HC that wins the close games each week.

Also:

Waivers;

I set the league so that there is no waiver waiting period.

Word to the wise,

Make sure that the player you are about to drop is a player you truely want to dump. Because the very moment you dump him, someone can claim him.

I did this because of the sheer number of players on our rosters (32). This puts the remaining talent pool EXTREEMLY THIN. So, I wanted a way for owners to get new talent ASAP.

Contesting trades;
Any trade that is rejected by 4 Owners will be rejected by the league.
I figure if 1/4 of the league owners think a trade is unfair, THEN IT IS UNFAIR!

CMWSR and anyone else wishing to set/change their team name.

When you login, you automaticaly find yourself on the league homepage.
Click on the my team button.
When your team page loads up you will see your team information at the top of the page.
Look at the box to the right of your team info. It has the foloowing info in it:

View: 2006 schedule | Trophy Case
Box scores: Week 1 - vs. (Whoever your scheduled to go head 2 head against in week 1)
Edit: Pre-rank Players | Team Name | Logo | Invite Another Owner

Click on the Team Name button.
This will take you to the screen where you can edit your location | Team Name | and your Abbreviation.

Also, if you wish to add your avitar:
The Logo button right next to the Team Name button on your team page will take you to the page where you can load an avitar.

Hope this helps you. If it doesn't work for you, PM me with the team name that you would like. I can set it for you through the league manager panel.

In another matter:

I'm am looking for someone in the league that I can give league manager status to as long as they don't turn arround and remove my league manager capabilities. Or I would be :evil:

I want a 2nd League manager because I am about to get very busy with demolition and rebuilding my house. ( see the thread: Into every life a little rain must fall in the Off Topic forum). This way if a league issue arises and I'm not online, there will be someone else that can handle it. If interested, please PM me.
