  1. Don't see anything wrong at it's base. I was in a popular dynasty league that was run by another web site and often owners would have teams in multiple leagues. So you'd see the same team name with a number after it for example (Frogs 1, Frogs 2, etc.). Usually if the commish had openings he couldn't fill he's ask current owners if they want another team in a different league. Shouldn't be an issue in general.
  2. Same as the last 18 years, back room of a local pub with our own hot waitress (owner takes care of us) and beer specials. Doesn't really get any better then that.
  3. My two local leagues been going 20 years+. If you don't show up or make other arrangements you're out. Only exception is I have one owner who was transferred about 800 miles away but he still flies up every 2-3 years for the draft. Draft weekend is Christmas for us. We go out Friday night to catch up and just shoot the poo. My draft is all day Saturday from about 11 to 6 and my buddy's draft is all day Sunday from 9 am to 5 (auction on that one). My one guy that may do remote just calls in or via Skype. I don't enter the draft in live on the web site as it happens because I have no fun when I've tried that so I record the draft on paper just like the old days and enter it in when I sober up in the evening. All in all, it's a weekend everyone looks forward to all year and for some is the only time we see them.
  4. In my IDP leagues, whatever a player does on the field he gets credit for, period. Scoring for all positions (Offense and IDP) are exactly the same, nice and easy. So if JJ Watt catches a TD pass he gets credit for the reception, receiving yards and the receiving TD just the same as a WR or a QB will get credit for a tackle they make off an INT. Can't get any easier then that.
  5. If it's at work only that's probably an issue with the Firewall at you office, in particular if they cache things and don't refresh the cache very often. Thus the cache right now may be corrupted and will clear itself out over a day or two. This assuming it isn't normal of course. Doing a Shift-F5 to force a full refresh of the web page can sometimes resolve that as well, but that's only if the corporate firewall will pass the force refresh along. Right now at work I'm still getting 3-4 second loads. It's about 6-7 seconds on my cell, majority of that time loading my images from Google Drive.
  6. True, mine are taking about 3 seconds. Only time I usually have a big delay is if there is an issue pulling from Google Drive (I have a couple things linked to that) or to Habman's server as I use his scoreboard.
  7. Back up it appears.
  8. Same. What's weird though is the forum is down too so I wonder if their they getting DDOS'd or something.
  9. Quite a few services offer this. MFL has for over a decade (both game previews and recaps) and I think even Yahoo does and that's free.
  10. Just an FYI as I see a lot of reasons to stay are centered around league history. Just so you know you can import your history into other services, you should check that out. Probably not ESPN. But definitely MFL and I think with Flea and RTS but I may be wrong there. So check out the other sites and see which ones have history import from other services. Give yourself some options anyway.
  11. Great example of PR departments running depth charts was Suggs when he had his contract dispute over trying to get more money and wanted to be listed as a LB. They made up a "new" position and listed him as DE/LB to appease him and his contract. Some of you may not want to hear it or believe it but NFL.com is not official nor are any of the team web sites. We used to have this argument 10-15 years ago with the Injury report on the NFL website. It wasn't official nor was it accurate many of times yet there were people that refused to believe something on the NFL web site could be wrong. Rotoworld seems to get their information from the NFL front offices and thus I like J Giles trust it as the most official thing we'll ever have access to.
  12. Because projections never tell the whole story. Rankings are almost always different from just a ranked listing of projections. Projections are just raw numbers but don't take into account other factors, least which is how you feel about a guy one way or another. My only suggestion is to never just follow a pure projections list or ranking list. But that is for another thread. By the way, I would rank Brady as a top 10 as well because once he comes back he's a Top 5 QB most likely. But the suspension will obviously hurt his overall projection numbers and drop him quite a ways. This is the perfect example what I just said, which is to not blindly go by a projections list (or ranking for that matter).
  13. Everything working great with the new update. In fact I used the Classic to do some waivers in two leagues that just drafted this weekend. I picked up a guy, went back to the Admin page and synced that league again and my roster updated with that transaction. I have what I need to get thru the season. Thanks! Four MFL leagues, one has two 12 team conferences with 24 teams.
  14. Especially now with one guy it should be easy as cake. Just call the guy on your cell, use a headset or earpiece if needed and you're all set. Draft as normal. Don't need to be online just for him, he'll hear every pick and can tell you his pick just like any other guy. My draft just this past weekend we had a guy remote who just moved. I had him on speaker on my phone for over 7 hours, worked great. We were in the backroom of a local pub so it was pretty quiet until later in the day, at that point I wish I had my ear buds so I could hear him better. I (actually my wife who volunteered to be league secretary, bless her heart) also entered the whole draft live on MFL as commish so just in case we lost connection and couldn't get back in touch he could follow along on the site and draft his pick. Sounds like pretty much every service but Yahoo allows the commish to enter in all the picks live, so that kinda sucks. But in any case, you don't really need to do it. It's 2016, cell phone call, Google Hangout or Skype should works plenty fine to bring a remote guy in.
  15. Joe....I'm in heaven again. Followed the instructions in the first post (made easier since I had done the cloud thing already) and MyFBG classic is back! Using Chrome on Win 7 by the way., 4 MFL leagues. MyFBG Classic may be "ugly" but it is all anyone needs. It's compact (HUGE difference from the new one), fast, accurate, easy to read, team/free agent highlighting that is easy to see and so on. Also so easy to change what you're looking at with drop downs and oneclick. Everything the mobile/new Footballguys app is not. Really appreciate you getting this back up and running. I was seriously looking around at other alternatives. FYI that Fantasy Sharks has their version working pretty well too. May want to peak at what they are doing. The biggest thing is that they can sync scoring system and starter min/max with MFL. Dunno if it's due to something special they have going on with MFL or if it's available via the dev API that you can use too. Thanks!
