Hello one and all! I would like to extend to both previous owners and possible new owners an invitation to a new EDSBS College Fantasy Football season! Last year was a fun time with MACtion leading to some thrilling contests and the realization that playoff teams were made up of non BCS players! Anyways, I'm about to send an email out to all existing owners, and have a few questions and ideas to throw to you guys, specifically, before we get into full swing.
First off, these questions are for existing owners only. I only recognize some of the team owners, so bear with me if I forget you because your email and team name don't tip me off to who you are, just tell me in the comments. For people I do know, LondonJoe, ChloeDenmark, ElRocco, emc503, T-Jax, Specter, IrishJugg, IndyDevil, MikeLew, VandyImport, allicolls, stubob, and RunTheDive, your input on these questions are the only thing that matters, as you get first say and if there are any new rules you want in then new members will have to deal with it. MOVING ON!
First proposal, is anyone interested in playing for money this year? Either we can remain a free league, or set a league fee of whatever amount we want (current league size, $5 would be a $110 pot, $10 would be a $220 pot, so on) and set up prizes for the champion and whatever top places. Your choice, throwing it out there, seeing what sticks.
Second and last proposal, and more interesting, it seems CBS saved the rosters from last season. Meaning, if any of your players didn't graduate or enter the draft this year, they're on your roster. I have no idea how the draft mechanics work, but this would add a dynasty aspect to the league. Obviously any new teams are at a disadvantage, but so are FCS teams moving up, and as people will attest from last year waiver moves are everything, ESPECIALLY in a college football fantasy league (Kirk Cousins was undrafted for gods sakes). So, anyways, either we can wipe the rosters clean or people can keep who they have. Your call.
I've sent an email to remind everyone about the league, this step is important: if you do not email me back by July 7th that you want to be in the league this year, I will delete your team and wipe you from the league. Now, if you decide after that date you want in, then you're in (The team limit is sizeable, if there are space issues former members get preference) but if the second proposal goes into effect you'll lose your players to the draft pool.
That's all, hope to see what you have to say below.
