    Exclamation Fantasy Football 2017

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

    So 2016's league memberships auto-renewed, so every player we had last year should have been automagically entered into this year's league. Log in and check it out for yourselves, guys. The cost and payouts are the same as last year. $50 entry fee, winner gets $450, 2nd place gets $100, 3rd place gets 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 (w/TRR Third Round Reversal Banzai, same as last couple years), happening at 7PM Pacific / 10PM Eastern on Wednesday, September 6th. This is the last day before the season starts on the 7th.

    The time and date for the draft is up for debate, 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)

    Last year's Championship game had TickleMeElmo take down GolfWang in the championship game (by 47 points!!!), becoming the second two time Coachella League champion. TickleMeElmo rejoins the Champion's Club along with previous years' winners Aphxtwinin (x2!), Bobert, and Playadelwes. Who will join the winners' circle this year? Is it YOU?

    Without further adieu, let's get to brass tacks here. Who is in?

    Coachella Championship '16 Participants, you have the first crack with a re-up for the new season of our league, you should have already received emails about the league renewing, but please verify if you are in this year by paying the $50 entry fee via the instructions I just sent out with PMs. I want to get all payments in by Thursday, August 31st. That will give us time to find a replacement if someone doesn't pay in time.

    If you want to join in the fun this year and you didn't play last year, say so and you'll be put on a waiting list in case someone from last year doesn't want to rejoin the fun.

    Participant list:

    Fourthisto (Dezpacito) PAID
    GolfWang (Breadskins) PAID
    lifeofgeoff (The Puppy Dogs) PAID
    LickTheLizzard (Amari Teenage Riot) PAID
    Aphxtwinin (Aphxtwinin) PAID
    ManImCool (Ezekiel 25-17) PAID
    Vasoline Groove (Theon Sanders) PAID
    santasutt (UCan'tNotBeatTheJets) PAID
    TickleMeElmo (RUN CMC) PAID
    ThomThom (Homo4Romo) PAID
    Bobert (Hunt Green Benjamins) PAID
    Michael <not a boardie> (Michael's Team) PAID



    Any questions, fire away.

    Let's rock.

    I have another draft scheduled on Sept 4th. Has anyone ever drafted in two Yahoo leagues at the same time? Just want to make sure this is possible before I commit. I did a quick check online and apparently you can do it on one computer if you open one of the drafts in an incognito window?

    Paid. For the first time ever I have no rule change requests. I think we got it right last year switching to 0.5 ppr along with everything else. Thanks commish.

    However if other people agree I would prefer another draft date, maybe even the following night, only because I may not be near a computer /internet access on labor day.

    Paid notes and waiting list updated.

    If Monday the 5th doesn't work out for the draft, I'd be okay with Tuesday or Wednesday night up as alternatives. As En Vogue would say: Speak your preference, the rest will follow.

    I just paid up. I'd also support the moving of the draft date to Tuesday or Wednesday. Late on Labor Day sounds like a recipe for disaster. I'd be happy doing it the week before as well. Thanks for running it again!

    FYI: There's also a Coachella Board Fantasy Baseball league (Established in 2011). We have two dormant teams right now.

    If anyone wants to take either to wrap up the season, let me know. If you grab a team and want to stay in the league, it's a keeper league with 6 players you can keep. Thanks all!

    Paid up, amigos.

    Cannot do the 5th.

    September 4th or 6th with a loaf of bread, a box of wine and thou.

    Labor day night works best.

    Updated the lists.

    Four spots still waiting on confirmation...

    I'd be okay with Wednesday the 6th at 10PM eastern, 7PM Pacific if that works better for everyone. Make your voice heard!

    I missed your question before. I've done two Yahoo drafts at the same time, in different browsers though. So it is possible!

    Cool. I'm in. Labor Day works but if enough people support changing the date I'm good with that too. Payment forthcoming.

    same. I like the idea of doing it the night before the season starts (although I can do the other days too). I'll be nice and drunk either way.

    Due to popular demand, I went ahead and changed the draft date to Wednesday night. 7PM Pacific, 10PM Eastern. If this messes anyone up, hollah!

    Sorry, I meant to pay earlier but then I just went on living my life. A wise man once said that money has no owners, only spenders. He's wrong, of course. Money can be owned, spent and babysat. I appreciate you looking after mine until January.

    So, I got a note back from Klein saying he's gonna pass since he's too busy to play with us. SO BE IT.

    Scenestar, you are now on the clock! Sending you a PM right this very moment! What say thee?

    Haven't heard back. Time is ticking away.... not sure we'll be good to draft Wednesday unless we get someone entered and paid ASAP!

    Anyone else interested in joining the league in this 11th hour?

    If we don't have a 12th team here is another option that I've used before. Basically what I've done in the past is create a phantom team #12. When you play the phantom team you go against the league average score for that week. The phantom team is not allowed to make the playoffs.

    Now I don't know if A) everyone would be on board with this idea or B) Yahoo has a setting that would allow easily allow for this set up. Just an idea though if we can't find a 12th person.

    What a piece of shit.

    Why don't you try and recruit some of your pick'em buddies? Some of them might enjoy the opportunity to compete for something other than pride (which I'll admit is probably a scarce commodity around these parts.)
