NFT: BBI fantasy football league......

Keith : 7/7/2017 11:32 am
Gentleman and arc, we discussed starting the league back up. I want to get it online, so lets solidify the managers. I'd like to give the active members from the last league the first crack and then fill in the rest with active bbi'ers.

I completely forgot who has confirmed their interest, so lets rehash that as well...

I remember there was a Rangers fan in there and maybe another guy or two. Going back to our last league, I remember Tbone was in it, hopefully he can add a 54th league. Who else?

Yeah I'm pretty sure they mean the league message which

I finally found. We should post everything there for dep. The other option is to start a group chat on FB or something to talk smack and discuss rules and such.

.
So is there an existing set of  
bigbluehoya : 7/10/2017 8:39 am : link
Scoring/roster settings that is being carried over from the previous iterations of this league, or are those yet to be discussed?
Yeah,  
Keith : 7/10/2017 8:41 am : link
I put in the same system(I lowered the points for kickers a little). However, everything is open for discussion.
Couple of thoughts on the settings  
YAJ2112 : 7/10/2017 8:57 am : link
Can we make the Playoff Tiebreaker total points and not head to head? Total points is more indicative of who has the better team than who won a random matchup.

I think the missed kick points are way too punitive. Kickers are already annoying enough without having to worry about losing a game because your idiot kicker got liquored up and shanked an XP. Something like -1 for misses under 40/XPs should be more than sufficient.

Keith : 7/10/2017 9:19 am : link
The settings are for playoff tie breakers. Not getting to the playoffs(we can't control this), but ties in the playoffs. The 2 options are "Higher seed wins" or "Head to Head".

Regarding kickers, we can certainly discuss that once we get the draft and other small details squared away. Still waiting on a few guys to respond regarding the draft.
ah... in that case  
YAJ2112 : 7/10/2017 10:27 am : link
can we make it Higher Seed and not H2H?
Possibly.  
Keith : 7/10/2017 10:34 am : link
Personally, I'd rather H2H, but we can vote on that later on. Lets get these other schlubs to confirm the draft first.
I am in whenever for a draft.

T-Bone is the only one not to chime in.  
Keith : 7/10/2017 5:40 pm : link
So last to sign up, last to confirm the draft. Can we just put this guy in last place already?
.  
arcarsenal : 7/10/2017 6:06 pm : link
Methinks T-Bone is treating us like a side chick that he's only interested in when nothing else is going on.

SAD!
LMAO!!!  
T-Bone : 7/10/2017 8:17 pm : link
Sorry fellas! Been a pretty busy day today and to be honest, I kind of forgot about this post. My bad.

As far as the draft, I'm good with any date (I believe) but if it's going to be during the week if we could make it any time after 8 (7:30 at the earliest) because I'm usually traveling home between 5:30-7:30ish. But if that doesn't work for any one else I'll be ok and will adjust.

Yeah that falls in line with what's been scheduled. Lots being discussed over on the league message board. Come on over and chime in.

Hey kmed...  
T-Bone : 7/10/2017 10:06 pm : link
is it showing me as being in the league? I'm having a hard time accessing it from the Yahoo app (which sucks by the way).

You're in there T-Bone though you haven't renamed your team to T-Bone's army yet. Someone else left, jlukes?

And Mike in STL doesn't want to be in another $$ league.

So I guess we need another team (or jlukes to rejoin) and to figure out if Mike in STL is in and it's free or we get a replacement.

I'm cool with whatever the majority decide decide, but prefer a money league, even if it's just $25.
We aren't playing for money.  
Keith : 7/11/2017 9:51 am : link
We will play for friend points. pj, you unfortunately start with negative friend points.

We need 2 new managers now.
We need 2 managers willing to play for 25 friend points  
Keith : 7/11/2017 9:52 am : link
and who will be active with the league.
I tend to agree that  
bigbluehoya : 7/11/2017 9:52 am : link
Attention and effort are going to be substantially better across the board with even a nominal amount of friendship points at risk.

I won't back out if the group decides otherwise.
There were a few guys on this thread that wanted in,

I'll put it up to those guys first....

We need 2 managers to fill the league.
I haven't read through the whole thread  
UConn4523 : 7/11/2017 10:17 am : link
but if you need another let me know.
You're in.  
Keith : 7/11/2017 10:23 am : link
Are you comfortable playing for 25 friend points?
Or to be more specific  
leatherneck570 : 7/11/2017 10:24 am : link
Giving me your 25 friend points?
Sorry guys - i'm not doing any more pay leagues for FF  
jlukes : 7/11/2017 10:26 am : link
enjoy the season!
Uconn,  
Keith : 7/11/2017 10:26 am : link
do you still have my email?

Jonald, pipe down over there!
All good lukes  
Keith : 7/11/2017 10:27 am : link
it would have been a donation to Jonald apparently anyway.
What's the name of one of you guy's team?  
T-Bone : 7/11/2017 10:30 am : link
I think I see the league now. Had to use my laptop though. Can't seem to find it on the app for some reason. Will keep trying though.

Damn... then I'm not in it. This is very frustrating. I've never used Yahoo (except that one time in the BBI league years ago) so I'm not familiar with how to join a league. I'll keep working on it. Thanks leatherneck!
T-Bone,  
Keith : 7/11/2017 10:52 am : link
you are in the league under "Brians Team". You've used Yahoo before because you were in this league in the past. However, it appears as though you created some crazy yahoo email address to access the league...

Let me know if you want me to kick you out and then you can sign up using a different sign in.

You're team is in it, your team name is Brian's Team.

Are you using an iPhone? the Yahoo Fantasy sports app isn't that bad, I can help you get in. If not an iPhone no idea.

How da hell did that happen?

Yeah... kick me out and I'll sign back in with the new e-mail address I made (brianjackson27@yahoo.com).

Thanks!
Uconn and T-Bone  
Keith : 7/11/2017 11:02 am : link
you both should have gotten the invite. Let me know if you don't.

thanks kmed.
With Uconn in,  
Keith : 7/11/2017 11:40 am : link
we just need 1 more manager. Someone who will be active, not only active with managing their team, but active in the discusssions as well.

arcarsenal : 7/11/2017 11:40 am : link
Kick him out again!
Should I?

Sent.

I'm assuming he will be. Referred to himself as an 'avid' fantasy football player.
FYI  
T-Bone : 7/11/2017 1:08 pm : link
margi said he got your invitation and will join later on tonight. He's unable to get to the site while at his job.
Ok  
T-Bone : 7/11/2017 2:57 pm : link
margi's in.
Just waiting on Uconn....  
Keith : 7/11/2017 3:18 pm : link
Everyone...go to your settings and turn on notifications when a post on the message board is made(if its not currently on). At least while we are figuring out the logistics of the league so you know when your response is needed.
Uconn, lets go already!  
Keith : 7/12/2017 8:43 am : link
We are all waiting on you to sign up.
sorry, I'll do it now  
UConn4523 : 7/12/2017 8:43 am : link
completely forgot yesterday.
I accept your  
Keith : 7/12/2017 8:45 am : link
apology.
done  
UConn4523 : 7/12/2017 8:48 am : link

Nice, now just confirm  
Keith : 7/12/2017 9:01 am : link
the draft date and we can move on.
