2017 Anarchy League 6 Thread

114 posts in this topic

Here you can find the 2017 Anarchy League 6 league site. The draft is not scheduled yet, and I hope to kick things off later this week after I finishing setting up all the leagues.
Draft order:

01 - Extreme_montage
02 - Ben & Jerry's
03 - Mr. Irrelevant
04 - Go DC Yourself
05 - Genester
06 - Mavis
07 - Biabreakable
08 - Hawkeye21
09 - CobaltCruisin'
10 - bro1ncos
11 - Ruffrodys
12 - Grigs Allmoon
13 - ItsOnlyTheRiver
14 - mikeya2k
15 - Jason Wood
16 - ryheaps

NOTE: Minor scoring changes for this year:
1) Successful defensive returns on extra points will score 2 points to that DEF/ST.
2) Players that score TD's on special team returns will now score 6 points (I thought it was set up this way all along).

I see you guys read the fine print about David being susceptible to bribes and flattery. ;)

Thanks for the 7 hole Anarchy! My investment is paying off already.

Very well, sir. You're... not only handsome, but a powerful man. I could see the second you walked in here, you were someone to reckon with...

Seems extreme montage is having trouble with wanting the first pick. Is that allowed, switching picks?

Does Extreme even know he signed up for this draft?  In the first round almost everyone should have pre-draft selections made.

He's quite aware.  According to the league site he checked in about 11 hours ago.  He had the first pick.  He could have used the pre-draft function.

He could not. MFL does not let the first overall pick be pre-drafted. But very few people are aware of that.

That sucks. He should still know when it was starting.

He was notified when the draft was starting and may well have tried to pre-draft a pick. The system would not tell him he couldn't do it. I will try to email him again.

Are you serious? I'm sorry, but even by MFL standards that's asinine.

@Anarchy99 Did I read the scoring rules correctly that TEs get 2 PPR, WRs get 1 PPR and RBs get 0 PPR?

That is correct.

Thanks for correcting me.  Probably an indication that I've never picked first in a slow draft.

This issue has come up in these leagues in the past, but I forgot about it. I should have indicated that to people beforehand. I remember alerting MFL to this problem and essentially was told that's just how it is.

We avoided this issue the last several years because I just turned the drafts on and didn't set a fixed start time. I thought it would be more interesting to have all the leagues start at the same time this time around, as that way no league would have an advantage to be able to see how the other leagues had drafted.

Hopefully things will get kick started soon and we can avoid other delays . . .

Can't time out on the very first pick of this type of draft on MFL.com, because technically the draft hasnt started until that first pick registers in the system.  And like Commish said, the first pick actually has to be picked by the owner and can't be predrafted, which is how it's always been on MFL.com and indeed makes absolutely no sense.

Yeah I had to wait for 7 EST to get the first pick in for league two.

I emailed Mr. Montage around this time as well.

As expected, first pick was pre-drafted and didn't work. We should be good now.

Some movement now. Just emailed CC who is up

So I was able to get Gronkowski at pick 7 and doubled down.

A full day has gone by and couldn't even make it through round one.  What's worse is that it wouldn't even have been a full round in a 12 team draft.

Thus why it is called a SLOW draft and why we are doing this a month and a half before the season starts. I can find participants and set up the leagues. I can't make people draft in a timely manner. 

There is no good way to deal with people not picking quickly. In the past using a draft timer, skipping people's picks and then having them give me a pick when they had an opportunity dramatically altered the chances for that team. There were times when they emailed who they wanted but I wasn't available and the player they wanted got picked AFTER they emailed me. Then what? Give them that player? Don't give that player? Making changes to guys already drafted would change what other owners could pick from.

How about have the system generated a player for them? When we tried that, owners could end up with a player that was hurt and out for the season. Then I tried making picks for people, but those owners would get peeved if I picked someone they didn't want and would drop out. I have enough issues getting people to fill out the leagues, and realistically, who wants to take over a team that someone else already picked half the players?

I try to stay on top of things and reach out to people to pick, but I can't babysit everyone all the time.

I don't think you should be responsible for anything.  You've had to do enough just getting it organized.  It's the responsibility of the people joining the league to actually pay attention and make picks in a timely manner.  It's not that hard to check occasionally to make your picks and when you know you're going to be away for a while enter in a bunch of pre-draft picks.

Right now it's the weekend so I don't expect a lot of action and that makes sense.  I know it can get pretty slow towards the end of the draft as well but the first round should be the fastest.  I'll try not to complain too much but I just really enjoy doing drafts and get impatient when a lot of time passes between picks.

This might be a terrible idea, but one thought is to designate one Anarchy league as the slow league. The 16 slowest drafters one year all get relegated to the slow league the next year. You can get moved back to your old league the following year as long as you draft fast enough during your season in the slow league.

Not a good sign with this new guy.  Picking 14th, he makes a pick on Sat. afternoon/evening, and then apparently doesn't check in at all that night or all Sunday to see if the four picks have been made bringing it back to him.

Yeah, even if timer is off or its the weekend or you are busy, it goes to show the interest one takes it would appear.  With technology now and days, not being available at some point is silly. The amount I get done in 5 minutes on the toilet is astounding. lol

The guy holding us up for nearly two days, Mikeya2k, is drafting in another league that I am in, and drafted within the past couple of hours.  I tried to get his attention through that league, but no response.  I'd suggest replacing him at this point.

He isn't in two Anarchy Leagues. I picked for him. If he doesn't show up, I will either replace him or continue to pick for him.
