Default 2009 Fantasy Football Rejects League

I'm starting a new thread so that we don't clog up the Veterans League discussion. Lets see how much interest this generates.

I am familiar with Yahoo since I run another league there. I have created a league which is a clone of the first league that I manage. There are 8 teams in the league currently. I like the 8 team size because then everyone gets to play each other twice and then we have the playoffs. Check out the scoring. I changed some settings from the defaults. I am open to changing the league size and the scoring. We can discuss if/when we fill the league. We can also decide on membership fee and awards at that time. I have arbitrarily set the draft for Monday night 8/24/2009 at 8PM est and can also change that if a majority of the teams decide on another date. If you want to join the league is currently a private league on Yahoo. The league name is HBTRejects. The league id is 387008 and the password is hbt.

I'm all for it. I think it was Yahoo that I ended up using last year after FOX screwed my other league's draft all up. Monday nights definitely do not work for me, though any other night would be fine.

Great! AS I said I'm open to changes. Lets fill the league and then finalize the particulars.

I'm in on this. I needed a 3rd team this year. Monday nights work well for me for a draft but a little later in the evening is better. We can figure it out once a few more people sign up.

I think once we get 'er filled up, we can discuss particulars (draft time, lineup/scoring preferences, fees/prizes, etc.). First things first.

Regarding the fees/prizes issue... Do we want to make this a "Supporting Members Only" type league since we'd be dealing with money and all? Or at least make the person holding the registration fees (commish?) a Supporting Member? Food for thought.

I think everyone should have to be a supporting member and whoever is holding the money should be a long standing or lifetime member.

I also think we should not wait to decide on fees because that could make someone change their mind about playing.

I agree on both counts. I think the "Old Timers" league was using a $20 buy-in, does that work for everybody, or do we want to up it a bit, seeing as how we're anticipating only having 8 teams? My other league is a $50 league but I don't know how many people would be up for that.

I woouldn't mind a little more than 20 but 50 would be too much for me. Also I don't want to deal with paying for trades or transactions. Just one amount up front.
