  1. Haha! Not the first time I’ve been called dead weight and won’t be the last. ?
  2. One thing I have learned in my years of doing this is, there will always be people who don't like what you're doing or how you're doing it, no matter how much you try to please everyone. So I'm going to let the FFPC's 11-year track record speak for me and bow out of this pointless convo. Good luck and I hope you keep having fun playing in the Footballguys Players Championship and the Main Event.
  3. All draft commissioners are instructed to call a player that's not in the draft room at the start of the draft. So yes, all commissioners act that way.
  4. Obviously we have fairly opposing views on how the FFPC should be running drafts, and that's perfectly fine.
  5. If a player is late and the commissioner calls the player on the phone and gets no response, his job is to start the draft unless he is aware of another reason to keep waiting. A five minute delay can turn into ten. Ten can turn into twenty. And then what? Our goal is the create a pleasant draft experience for all 12 owners. If one is late and not responding, waiting for him hurts that draft experience for the other 11 owners who are there on time. We do it sometimes, but we have to know that the late owner is on his way into the draft room.
  6. We spoke to Justin yesterday after receiving your email and from his perceptive, based on the draft from and communication with you during the draft, this was a user error in using the QUEUE functionality. Commissioning a live draft is not an exact science and each commissioner uses his own discretion to make a decision on the spot based in the situation. In this case, he felt that rewinding the draft at that point was not warranted as the drafted player was taken from your personal QUEUE. Rewinding the draft is typically only reserved for connection issues or technical issues, like users being frozen out of the draft, as an example. We are sorry you didn't have a great draft experience, as your first and only draft of the 2018 season so far, but contrary to the post above, there are no issues with the QUEUE button as none were reported during that or any other draft yesterday or any other day recently.
  7. Sounds like it. Please email support@myffpc.com and we will make sure your account is correct.
  8. As soon as you enter a qualifying league.
  9. Hey everyone, I know it's still March but the 2018 Footballguys Players Championship is already launched for this season and registrations are open! Due to popular demand, we're starting the drafts earlier than ever this year. First draft is scheduled on Saturday, May 5th with daily drafts all the way thru opening Thursday's game September. The other bit of great news is the new Early Bird Promo we are rolling out this year: a FREE $35 FFPC League Credit (up to 3 maximum per person). Here's all you need to do to take advantage: Register for the FPC before June 30, 2018 and draft your team no later than July 15, 2018 to receive a FREE $35 team credit toward any $35-entry FFPC league. Maximum of three (3) $35 team credits are given per person or account regardless of teams purchased or drafted by Early Bird deadline. To be eligible for $35 credit, FPC teams must be purchased with cash funds. FPC credits are not eligible for the promotion. So, take a look at the draft schedule, pick out your draft, register and your free $35 league credit will be automatically added to your MyTeams page. Use it anytime to enter any of FFPC's $35 Best Ball or Classic drafts as practice for your future FPC draft. Good luck!

  11. Not sure if this has been mentioned in this thread and I assume it has not been. Aside the debate whether this is a D/ST play or not, the reason why Yahoo and CBS does not score this as a D/ST touchdown is because this play does not come thru the scoring feed as a D/ST touchdown. All league management platforms use services like SportRadar, STATS and others for official scoring and when a play like this come thru, it is not tagged as a D/ST play but simply an offensive play. This is exactly how the FFPC receives the scoring data from SportRadar. So technically we can manually override the SportRadar feed to assign this as a D/ST play if we wanted to, but there is no way to automate this as it's not tagged as a D/ST play when it comes over. FYI, the FFPC does not score this as a D/ST touchdown as per our official rules.
  12. I read it and appreciate Jay's time and his input. It's well thought out, I agree. If I was starting a new contest, I would consider it. The Footballguys Players Champion has been running since 2010 (it's sister contest FFPC Main Event since 2008), both using the current format in place. It's not perfect - no league format is - but literally thousands of players are enjoying the current format and we are not going to consider scrapping and replacing it, and attempt to reeducate these thousands of players to the merits of another system.
  13. The first 2017 FPC league has already been filled and registrations are already pouring in. Keep in mind as soon as the league you enter has filled, draft spots are automatically drawn and emailed.

  14. The 2017 Footballguys Players Championship (FPC) is now open for the 2017 season. A few items of importance: - We know many of you begin your FF prep earlier and earlier each year, especially those of you playing in Dynasty leagues. With this in mind, we have scheduled the first FPC drafts starting Sunday June 4th, just a few short weeks from now. And if you think that's too early? No worries, there's a draft scheduled on each and every day thru Thursday, September 7th, right up until kickoff of the opening game of the 2017 NFL season. - As always, we have the early bird incentive. Register before Friday, June 30th, 2017 and receive a complimentary subscription to Footballguys.com Insider Pro membership ($34.95 value). Purchase a 3-pack of FPC teams for $1,000 and receive a complimentary 3-year subscription ($72.95 value). If you already have a Footballguys.com Insider Pro membership, the complimentary years will be added to the end of your current subscription. A maximum of 3 year subscription will be awarded per person regardless of FPC teams purchased by early bird deadline. - If you have won a free entry(s) into the 2017 FPC in last year's contest, these entries are on your MyTeams page in a form of a "Credit". Simply to go your MyTeams page, click the REDEEM button and proceed with your registration. If you do not see a credit which you believe should be there, please email support@myffpc.com. - Last year, we have expanded to TWO pre-season free agency periods for any FPC leagues which draft before Friday, September 1st . Here's the new rule as written: NEW RULE: Starting in 2016 there will now be TWO “pre-season” free agency processes. The first is scheduled on the Friday prior to Labor Day weekend, at 10pm ET for any FPC league which draft concludes on or before the Thursday prior to Labor Day weekend. The second is scheduled on Wednesday after Labor Day weekend, at 10pm ET for any FPC league which draft concludes on or before Tuesday, after Labor Day weekend. All FPC leagues drafted on or after Wednesday, after Labor Day weekend will begin free agency after NFL Week 1 has concluded. - Start by State eligibility: As many of you have probably heard, there are fantasy laws being passed across the county with the intention to regular the DFS industry. Unfortunately, the season-long game operators like the FFPC are forced to become licensed and comply with most of these laws, which include taxes, fees and burdensome regulations. In most cases, the FFPC will be able to meet these requirements but in some cases we will not. We recently received our license to operate in New York. We are also operating in states like Massachusetts, Colorado and Maryland, which have adapted fantasy sports laws. Sadly, we had to exit certain other states like Tennessee, Virginia, Indiana and Missouri, all of which have laws which are too costly and too burdensome for us to comply with. (In case of Missouri, the current law is in the process of being changed so we are expecting to return to Missouri at some point, hopefully this summer). So what does this mean for those of you who live in the restricted states? Unfortunately, we cannot accept entries, payments, or send prizes to residents in these states. For more information on eligibility and other compliance issues, please see the FFPC Terms & Conditions page or email us at support@myffpc.com. Here are bullet points of all the FPC goodies..... FPC Grand Prize of $250,000. Championship round total prizes will pay down to 700th place. Championship round cash prizes are paid down to 150th place. 300 free 2018 FPC teams for places 151st to 450th, each valued at $350. Footballguys Insider Pro lifetime & three-year subscriptions awarded from 451 to 700th place. League prizes are $2,250, with a 2018 FFPC Main Event ($1,750 Value) for first place and $500 cash for second. A $1500 cash prize option is available instead of the Main Event team. Contest entries are capped at 7,200 teams and all prizes are guaranteed. Entire prize pool placed in escrow. Online drafts will take place daily, beginning on Sunday, June 4th and run all the way thru Thursday, September 7th. The entry fee remains the same at $350 per team, with a 3-pack of teams for $1,000 ($50 discount).
