I just renewed the Yahoo league we used last year.

The draft is tentatively set for Fri Sep 4 6:00pm PDT (9pm Eastern).  I remember there were some issues with the draft time last year, so please suggest a preferred date/time soon.

The URL is:

If you want an invite, send me a PM or post something in this thread.  People who played last year should have already gotten an email.

Prize is tbd.  Our ad revenue is way down this year (much fewer danica lurkers), so it might not be as good as last year.

Oops, I just noticed that devil smiley and realized you weren't serious about the draft date.  That definitely needs to be changed.  I mean, looking at some of the players last year, what are the chances that they'll be home in front of a computer on a Friday night?*

I just changed the max # of teams to 14, and changed the number of teams that make the playoffs from 4 to 6.  I liked the head-to-head format from last year.

I think we should probably tweak the scoring, but I can't remember what issues came up last year with the scoring.  Any suggestions?

What do you guys think about changing the roster format slightly?

Change the starters from:
QB, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, K, DEF
to
QB, WR, WR, Flex(WR/RB/TE), RB, RB, TE, K, DEF

So instead of a third WR spot, you have a flex player that could be WR/RB/TE.  It definitely changes the strategy up.

Ah, here's where we talked about future league rule changes:
http://www.golfhos.com/topic-9122.90

Another idea is 1 pt bonus for passing > 300yds or rushing/receiving > 100yds

All these funky rules make it harder to estimate your teams points on Sunday, though.

flex indeed is a great idea- already where I was going with my Q.


i would chime in ideas...


fractional scoring
shutout worth more than 10. (more like 14), adjust up/down a bit accordingly
add draft of 1-2 additional defensive individual players per team
points for plays over 10 yards.

LOL, I'd be there if it's for the draft.  Really, it shouldn't be much earlier though ...  got to wait for last viewings of teams, see who gets hurt last week of preseason, etc.

ROFL - I'd give myself 9% though.

For me, monday evenings are the most mundane, never anything happening, sitting at the PC night I can think of.  Thurs-Sat are all about 9% for me..... well, Sat is about 1%  Cheesy

I'm ok with those except for "points for plays over 10 yds".  I don't see that as an option.

I'd favor only 1 additional individual defensive player just to keep things simpler. 

Anyone for or against any of those suggestions?
