This is an odd year. There is a lot of uncertainty about the season finishing as a whole. For that, I am asking people if they are willing to still put in the $30, and in the event of the season getting cancelled (we will need to have an explicit definition on this) then the money will carry over for the following year; where would would still have the same buy-in and then a double payout. This would REQUIRE a 2 year commitment from EVERYONE. If you pay in the $30, and the season gets cancelled, and you decide that you don't wanna participate in 2021, you then just donated 2020 - NO REFUNDS.

I will need a post that says you are in and willing to carry over the money to the following year or a post that says you are not willing to do so. If mostly everyone says they are in, we will run it for money. If not, then I can consider a free league, granted that people are in for it. Post up what you are FOR SURE in for.

I know it's late and the season starts soon. So I'll give a week for everyone to respond before looking for replacements. If you are willing to be an alternate, on the waiting list, please let me know.

Waiting list:

These are the rules that we have had for years and years. It has worked, but to try to make everyone happy, I'll listen to adjustments.

Any questions/concerns about rules post them up! I will try to accommodate every request if majority is in favor.

This is a copy of the rules from last season. I will hear requests about rule changes:

We will be doing a LIVE Online draft. You MUST be present at the draft (well technically not, itll autodraft you if you dont show up, but its much better if you show up. Also, you'll be an asshole, and no one likes an asshole.)

I'll be asking Mook Mook to draw draft order from a hat again this year. This worked out well the last 6 years, so we will continue to run it this way.

Also, like to send out a Congrats to Tight Lines Tight Lines for winning the 2019 Championship!

Payouts are as follows
1st - $270
2nd - $90

I am willing to carry the $30 over to next season in the event it gets cancelled.

What is going to determine a “cancelled” season? I only ask as if we do put $30 up and they play but a ton of stars or drafted players sit out, does that count? Or if the NFL plays no matter what are we playing?
I know a lot of Fantasy is luck but having to pick players that are 2nd and 3rd string as starters will really be about luck. I know $30 won’t kill me but I don’t like lighting it on fire either.

You're not losing the money if the season gets cancelled (which I doubt will happen. I think the worst would be some postponed games and some players sitting out, especially early in the year). The money will still be there in 2021 in a worst case scenario.

To be safe, IMO, we need a corona waiver. IF an active player drops out because of corona during a week, that player should be put on IR on an owner's team so he can pick up someone else without losing what could be a top player for the rest of the season. When the player comes off of corona IR, the owner must drop another player to keep his roster at the correct size (14).

I don't think a player who drops out before the season should be eligible for the IR spot. You want to gamble on someone coming back, that's fine but they take a roster spot.

Just throwing this out there. I'm open to hear everyone's opinions on how to write the corona rule.

How do you even make that work? It sounds like a nightmare. Unless there is a distinction on Yahoo, I don't know how to make it work.

Maybe add a couple IR spots and use the honor system? That'd be easier than doing it manually. You get final ruling on anybody placed on IR in case there's a question if it's corona related.

I don't know what the Yahoo settings allow.

The alternative is play the game normally but that means owners may risk losing a player if they have a mid week corona drop.

Maybe as you are dropping players in those spots, you have to post up on the league board stating you are so everyone can see it as well. :dunno:

That's an option. I say put out a thread starting the league and asking who is interested? Worked in past years.

IMO, send a PM to J Jack and Tony. They may see that faster than the thread. I can call Jack if he doesn't see the PM.

The only time I played where we had it players they had to be designated as such by the NFL and once off it you had 1 Derek to move to your active roster. Probably not going to work for what we are talking about.

I was looking around and some recommended things we might add. Extra bench spots. Injured reserve slots, the NFL is going to designate covid-19 positive players as being on ir. Also Monday night games,if canceled on monday the league president might need to manually enter scores for that game.
