    Default 2010-2011 VHlinks Fantasy Basketball

    We have: myself, SNIC, Brew, Menlow, Panama Dog, It's me, Brett, Scotty5150, Warham and jrk5150. A 10 team squad all returning from last year (for the first time I think). I'll double check with Warham. Haven't really heard from him at all.

    Not much needs to be said to returnee's, but I'll post this just for reference anyway...


    The Format:

    This league will be head to head (same as prior years), meaning that your team will play a different opponent every week. We cycle through and play each other about 3 times eacg. In the past, we have competed in the following scoring categories: FGM (field goals made), FG%, FTM (free throws made), FT%, 3PTM, 3PT%, PTS, REB, AST, ST, BLK. Each category won is considered one point. The weeks winners are determined by how many categories you win/lose.

    We'll compete with the following roster positions: (same as last year): PG, SG, G, SF, PF, F, C, Util, Util, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, IR, IR (Util= utility and can be any NBA position, BN= Bench and does not count towards the days stats ie if a player is assigned to the bench, even if they are playing that night, they are not active and accumulating towards your score).

    45 moves allowed again. Trades and injured reserve players don't count towards your moves for the season (more on injuries later).

    The Draft!:

    Live draft again. It owns. Draft day lets say will be early/mid October and I'll keep you posted on date/time. We did live last year and it ruled. An hour and done.

    This is a keeper league. Same as before, keeping 4. Returnees, you should know your picks, but if not, make them. I'll collect and post in one post later on so we know who's in the pool and who's already taken


    The draft will be a "snake" style draft starting at 1, going through 10, then 10 again and back to 1. Repeat 14 times or so. Draft order will be from last to first in accordance with end of season rankings.

    The rules:

    Standard rules of the league will be displayed under the league settings page on the Yahoo! site. I do have some additions though that are not listed there:

    1. ACTIVE PARTICIPATION- Basically, this is a big boy league. I expect that this be an active, interactive and competitive league. I don't care if you have a good team or a bad team or what your rank is, but I do care about you playing your best. That means basically updating your roster on a weekly (or so) basis, responding to trade requests within a reasonable amount of time, taking care of injured players etc. It's lame when somebody disappears for a week and doesn't update their roster, letting their opponent have an easy win (which affects everything including final standings, playoff rankings etc) and then comes back the next week and updates just to smoke the next guy. It's not fair. Basically, the more participation we have, the funner the league is for everybody. This has always been an active league so I'd have no reason to suspect that it won't continue to be. I just want to put that out there. If you end up in last place, I'd expect you to not pick up your ball and go home. (Again, I copied this from last year. Given the core we have here, I really don't see this as an issue at all)

    -The injured list- Thank God ESPN has an automated system for this. It's a PIA to manage otherwise. We have two IR spots. If a guy goes down, you can pick another up and keep your guy on IR until he heals.

    -Disputes/challenges go through me. I'll mediate if necessary. Doubt it will be. If you guys don't like the way something is done, bring it up by all means

    -Keepers- Deadline for deciding on your keepers will be let's say ASAP, but no later than first of October. Figure it out. It's not hard.

    -Trade deadline- It'll be as early as I can set it. I don't want teams with shoddy records cashing it in and giving up early and targeting keepers for the next year. Nothing wrong with that of course, not against the rules or anything, it just seems to take some purity out of it.

    -Trading- No trades this year prior to the draft. No trading of draft positions or any of that. Back to basics here. Select your keepers, draft your team, then let the trading begin.


    Somebody is going to have to fuck up the stupid snakes.

    Game on

    If we're drafting in October, I'm requesting we avoid Friday the 8th (anniversary plans). Tuesday nights are great for me, if it matters.

    My keepers:

    Durant
    LeBron
    D. Howard
    A. Stoudemire

    Suck it. :hiss:

    The only good news I can pull from that is that LeBron will be taking a hit in the numbers this year due to ball sharing....and Howard/Lebron will cost you FT%. Otherwise, you're really going to have to fuck up this draft.

    I have faith in you to do that.

    as do I. Any other manager couldn't lose with those keepers if he tried. Scotty could lose though.

    late at night during the week works best for me for drafts.

    The Bosh/Howard swap last year has ended up working out really, really well for me. Bosh's fantasy value has sharply fallen, obviously. Howard sucks at the line, but that can be absorbed into a decent roster. LeBron's status is the only real step back for me, but he's option 1a at worst, so things are hardly dire in Cobraville.

    Actually, that's the Friday before. The day of I have to work late.

    Would you like to rejoin the Links league as a bench coach for the Cobraz, OLO? Isn't it time you felt like a winner?

    fantastic idea - You and OLO in charge will guarantee that the team fall apart.

    I didn't say he'd be making decisions. Probably getting KD some Gatorade and me some donuts. I might let him draw pictures on the chalkboard from time to time (if Kevin says it's OK).

    Been wondering when this thread was going to rear its ugly head. Scotty, I'm afraid I'm going to need that trophy back.
