  1. thanks for the input
  2. Just found this on a search. My auction Keep 3 league is kicking the tires on this. It's a soft cap league so traded cap space would only be relevant for the upcoming and next year auction. PROS I see - encourage more trading, reward those with more than 3 viable keepers, allow weaker teams and/or new ownership to rebuild CONS - teams could do some serious damage to their teams for future years so teams would have to pay the next year's fees prior to trades Looking for some example rules and experiences from similar leagues - thanks
  3. added rules link to first post.
  4. Classic for me this year. I feel I can view more info at a glance with classic. I fear I'll be forced to new dd in 2017
  5. bump - the new team is going to have as good (or better) keepers than several of the existing teams...
  6. Is there any updates for 2016 on MFL live auctions? I'm still using free ESPN for my MFL hosted league but was wondering.
  7. One of my redraft leagues uses an online dice roll Every owner gets to go and roll their own. We use the results for draft order and division assignment. i.e. 10 rolls of 100 sided dice with high score getting pick #1, etc. If you use it you need to ensure that valid dice rolls cc the commissioner.
  8. oops it would prob help if I pasted the complete available players ... The 2 new teams will take turns selecting up to 3 keepers each from these combined available players: Player 2015 YTD Pts Bye Salary YR Manning, Eli NYG QB 310.44 8 $10 2 Gordon, Melvin SDC RB 99.80 11 $31 2 Ivory, Chris JAC RB 191.70 5 $11 3 Jennings, Rashad NYG RB 154.50 8 $12 2 Lacy, Eddie GBP RB 134.90 4 $37 4 Cobb, Randall GBP WR 209.30 4 $21 5 Colston, Marques FA WR(Q) 121.00 - $9 2 Hilton, T.Y.

  10. direct link for $100 one has an error. Please repost
  11. Might be interested but I've never played in a yahoo hosted league (mostly MFL). Is there a link to the league site so I can have a look?
  12. Would love to hear a 2015 experience. Prior years were too slow/buggy compared to ESPN/Yahoo free. My advice up to 2014 has always been to skip the MFL BETA live auction and host it for free on ESPN. Then enter/transfer rosters into your MFL league after the auction. Here's hoping that they can remove the BETA testing from it some year when it becomes smoother/more reliable/ faster.
  13. I couldn't find a way to past a table without it getting messed up so here's a link to the suggested fees/prizes
  14. My league didn't have enough at DFF to keep it alive but I did join 1 of Lee's DFF revived Phenoms leagues orphans to give it a try. I was in 2 Sigma auction keeper leagues and might start a new one up.
  15. Hello. Looking for feedback on starting a new auction keeper league called THE TEN YEAR PLAN (TTYP). It's based on defunct Phenoms Sigma league. I've been commish of 3 leagues that each have been going on for 10+ yrs. There is an ownership core of 4-5 in each league that has been around for all/most of the 10+ yrs. The strongest owners continue and the weaker quit. That's the nature of this business so I'm always thinking about rules and structure to make it possible for new owners to re-build and incentive for owners to build and stay. Another approach is to ask for more $ commitment up front and slowly give that back to the owners that stick around. I also like the idea of a league that has a fixed end date. i.e. 10 years. Never been in one but I imagine it would change the auction and roster approach by year 9 or 10! Hence the idea of THE TEN YEAR PLAN is born. One format that I loved was our Sigma Phenoms league. Unfort Dataforce wasn't able to get more than 3-4 interested in continuing our league. It was a 12 team, $200 cap auction keeper league. The cap was a HARD cap meaning always in effect. 18 man rosters, plus up to 4 IR (once on IR they only count 50% salary towards your cap) Scoring was 0.5 PPR RB/1 PPR WR/TE Otherwise pretty normal including pts for DST yds/pts against. One interesting part of a hard cap is the blind bidding price you pay for a player becomes his salary. FCFS pickups have a default $1 salary. Keep as many as you want subject to annual salary increase of $5 + 10%. i.e. a $2 player would become $7.70 in yr 2, $13.97 in yr 3, etc. The auction is slower auction which took 7-20 days to complete. Longer for the first year and shorter for subsequent. We would iron out the nomination/bidding rules but there would always be multiple players on the block. We would have to work within MFL or possibly the Dataforce FF site rules for the auction nom/bidding/expiry details. I've never used Leaguesafe but would be in favor of moving towards it for this new league. Only issue I'm aware of is they don't accept paypal and I'm not 100% sure what international users have for deposit/withdrawal options. I will post a suggested fee/payout structure. $200 yr1, $150 yr2, $100 thereafter. Prizes start at 1000 yr 1 and escalate to $1500+ in the final year 10. 100% paid out after league hosting costs. Thoughts on who would be interested in a new startup league with this structure? So far I have 6 interested from other leagues I commish and old Sigma owners. It would be hosted on MFL and I would be an owner AND commish (using the lockout feature). Lee Harmon (also a Phenoms customer and owner of Dataforce FF) would also be a co-commish and own one of the franchises. Eric Lyseng - Mad Cowz
