    Exclamation Fantasy Football 2016

    It's that time of the year again, women and children!

    I've just sent out invites (if you didn't get one due to an email address SNAFU, let me know and I can PM you the details) to every player we had last year , and if there is enough interest and the league is full with many more interested, I would definitely run a second league if need be. But let's concentrate on the first league... first. The cost and payouts have changed. $50 entry fee, winner gets $450, 2nd place gets $100, 3rd place their money back. The rest of us/you suck eggs for a few months.

    I've set up the usual, a 12 team live draft, standard = snaking order, happening during the first week of September. It definitely won't be on the weekend or on a Friday night. The exact draft date and time will be TBD by the owners involved. Tentatively I put down 7PM Pacific / 10PM Eastern on Thursday, September 1st. This is the last Thursday before the season starts on the 8th.

    The time and date for the draft is up for debate, hell, even the KIND of draft, along with any other suggestions are all open for discussion - scoring settings, etc., can all be discussed here - or we can just roll with last year's settings. (as they currently are in the Yahoo league page) One change has already been made - .5 PPR this year.

    Last year's Championship game had Aphxtwinin take down ManImCool in the championship game, becoming the ONLY two time Coachella League champion. Aphxtwinin rejoins the Champion's Club along with previous years' winners Bobert, TickleMeElmo, and Playadelwes. Who will join that exclusive club this year? Is it YOU?

    Without further adieu, let's get to brass tacks here. Who is in? If you want to join in the fun this year and you didn't last year, say so and you'll be put on a waiting list in case someone from last year doesn't want to re-enlist.


    Coachella Championship '15 Participants, you get the first crack at signing up for the new season of our league, you should have already received emails about the league renewing, but please verify here if you are in this year:

    Fourthisto (Cam DeMarco) - IN & PAID
    Bobert (Second String Savior) - IN & PAID
    ManImCool (Arian Brotherhood) - IN & PAID
    santasutt (UCan'tNotBeatTheJets) - IN & PAID
    GolfWang (The Radskins) - IN & PAID
    LickTheLizzard (LORD FLACKO JORDY II) - IN & PAID
    Aphxtwinin (Aphxtwinin) - IN & PAID
    lifeofgeoff (The Puppy Dogs) - IN & PAID
    TickleMeElmo (GOD HATES JAGS) - IN & PAID
    ThomThom (Homo4Romo) - IN & PAID
    Vasoline Groove (Theon Sanders) - IN & PAID
    heart cooks brain (the Golden Taints) - IN & PAID


    Waiting list:

    braundiggity

    In.

    If I remember correctly, when the league was started way back when, we decided the buy-in should be $30 because then it meant the winner would essentially get to go to Coachella for free with a cool $330. Well now that the same GA wristband now costs $399, I'd like to propose a modest increase to $40. I do support the commish's $50 as well, but I understand if the masses only want $40. It just makes sense to let the winner still be able to go to Coachella for free, and $30 per person just ain't enough anymore. I'm going to hold off on paying until the commish makes a ruling on exactly how much to pay, unless of course he'd rather us pay $30 now and then pay a little extra later should we decide on an increase.

    Also, this is my annual plea to switch to 0.5 PPR. 0.25 last year was cool, but just wasn't a massive difference maker. Full point PPR is a bit much but I think 0.5 is a nice balance.

    Loved the FAAB format we introduced last year.

    Finally, in case someone proposes it, I don't want an auction draft. Vote to keep the snake draft.

    Word, I'd join if there's room. If we end up with two separate leagues (no need to start a second league unless there's really demand for it), it would be sweet to have a Super Bowl of some sort between the two champions.

    I'm in again. Thanks for getting it going Istos!

    I'm cool with upping it to $50 but would be cool with $40. If we go with $50, maybe we can pay out to 3 places - $450 to winner $100 to 2nd, and $50 to 3rd, so at least there will be four teams still in play on the last week.

    Also, I would like the .50 ppr. We really have such low scoring in this league that sometimes kickers and defenses swing games which is not ideal.

    I'm in for $50 and I second the three payout tier as proposed by Mr. Groove above.

    Snake and full PPR for me but I'll settle for halfPPR.

    I'm fine for $50, Vaseline's payout structure and I guess I vote for .5 PPR if it will finally put the whole debate to rest (I'm not confident it will - there's already people clamoring for a full point.)

    I'm fine with anything the group decides on buy-in and ppr value. I really liked FAAB last year, but I am 100% opposed to an auction draft.
    This ain't no middle of the mall shit.

    So it's settled: $50 per team is the entry fee this year. In the original spirit of "the winner going to Coachella for free", the payout system will change to become:

    1st place : $450
    2nd place : $100
    3rd place : $50
    4th place : neverending regret
    5th - 12th place : Do you even football bro



    Also: .5 PPR has passed, I will make the changes in the Yahoo scoring system today.

    FAAB and Live Snake Draft still stand.

    Four team owners from last year have yet to say they're in. I will send them PMs to ask that they confirm their interest in the next week so we can move on.

    Does Thursday 9/1 work for you guys for the live draft? We've got a little time to settle on this... I want to avoid Friday and weekend nights, like usual.

    What's your email to send paypal to again?

    9/1 works for me. Also like that it's after the 3rd preseason games and not before.

    I have PM'd instructions on how to pay the $50 league entry fee to everyone who has signed up thus far. Let's try to get everyone signed up and paid by next Friday, August 19th.
