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.
