  1. I can’t seem to get this to work on my phone browser. Can someone go through all the steps necessary to do this?
  2. Thanks so much! Both articles are amazing and really helpful also!
  3. Hi @Joe Bryant @Sigmund Bloom @Jene Bramel just wondering if and when both of these amazing rookie IDP dynasty features will be published on the main website. Thanks for all the hard work in doing this!
  4. Hence why a bunch of us including TheWinz were trying to explain to you why the contest this year is sort of flawed. Both of those teams have 0 players from the Divisional Round and in any other year would have been eliminated with a score of 0 in Week 1 of the playoffs. Same goes for the team that TheDope said is his...also had no players and would have been cut if there was any cut line (even just 0.1 for the week). Now do you understand what we all tried to explain. Most people (even you to a degree) put some of their money on players who played in Week 1 because everyone needed to be weary of a cut line and survive that week. Now there are a bunch of front runners who put 0 dollars on Week 1 and loaded up with just KC/SF and “should have” been eliminated in any other year. This is why we explained how the pricing for the NO players was too high and way off due to the 3,000 player anomaly. Hope it all makes sense now.
  5. The prices for NO made a lot of sense if you felt NO would be a Súper bowl team because you got 3 weeks of them playing and they would theoretically score for you in all the weeks and make it a bit easier to advance each week. Why they now seems very skewed is because not only did NO lose, but their points didn’t even count in week 1 due to the low amount of entries. A lot of people will choose 1 of the wild card week teams as a Super Bowl team because they score 4 weeks worth of points from them. So FBG has always made those “favorites to make it far” like NO a very high price. It has always been hard to pick 2 Super Bowl teams who have byes in week 1 and advance. You need to hedge a good amount. This is why there are usually a lot of entries that have 1 of the Wild Card teams and 1 of the bye teams. People who do pick 2 bye teams usually have to pick a few extra special wild card players and also take less Súper bowl players. With NO losing just now it has affected a lot of entries (not only because this week didn’t count) but also because those who played as though there would be a cut (and FBG prices reflecting a cut) now lose a lot of money of the $250 due to the low count and also picking a wild card team. Unlike the regular season contest where every player (or at least an equal amount of highest scoring players) will get points every week, in this contest only 2 players from each team score even if you have 8 of them. This leads to making the weight of each week more valuable and hence why this “no cut line” is a lot worse in the playoff contest where prices reflect cuts each week. Since there was actually no cut this week, maybe the management at FBG @Joe Bryant and @Doug Drinen who are monitoring the contest can chime in and maybe offer a chance for people who had lineups in before the deadline to get a second chance to build a lineup since we know for sure there will be a cut next week. This allows a redo for everyone since it has now affected a ton of people who might have picked differently. Since no one was officially cut this week it may just work as a solution for this year to resolve the issue.
  6. Thanks for at least coming in here to see what is going on. Unfortunately I do think this person is fishing you. And here is why I reacted and feel this way... Because this user went and changed the title of this thread to include "chili tasting" which I now see has been edited back by the FBG Moderator. A serious user would not be doing that when there is so much contention in this thread. Looking at the comments from @Jello_Biafra and @Dr. Dan and @Arodin and @Dr. Octopus and @need2know and @wakelawyer and @voiceofunreason and @Twenty-Four Eighty-Four and @jmo87usc and @jtd13 and @Mr. Irrelevant and @elshagon it should be pretty clear to you by now that your community (more than just a single poster) knows that this user is a spammer!
  7. To be EXTRA CLEAR... I want "the lone star" banned FIRST AND FOREMOST. Then all of his ridiculous threads to be removed at this point. What I am saying is that he is posting hypothetical nonsense and bumping his threads to the top and cluttering the boards and taking away from good meaningful discussion which is what I hope you want this community to be about. I now sent a follow up e-mail to your owners @Joe Bryant and @David Dodds letting them know my feelings. Why is your company (and you with this follow up question) beating around the bush and not handling an issue that seems to be upsetting a majority of your community. You are about to lose PAYING MEMBERS over this! Please do something!
  8. Hello Moderator, I have now reported this thread (especially with the useless bumps that "the lone star" seems to do to get all of his useless threads on the front page). I also wrote a note to both @Joe Bryant and @David Dodds about this user explaining how these threads that he starts are taking away from real discussion about NFL Draft prospects for Dynasty leagues which is what this community wants with less than 2 weeks until the draft. I was honest with them and let them know I will be pulling my subscription and getting a bunch of my friends to pull theirs as well if this situation is not taken care of. Their response was to tell me to report the threads since that is the only way things are handled (even though I thought an e-mail to them would be even better as I was reporting my thoughts directly to the owners of this site...but I am thinking it wasn't valued for some reason). So here I am reporting this thread and asking you to PLEASE remove this user from the boards!
  9. There seems to be a problem with IDP where the LB’s are not in their own category (DL and DB are) and only show up as Flex. Is this something that can be fixed?
  10. My championship game in 2014. My good friend has AJ Green playing against Pittsburgh on the Sunday Night final game of the season in Week 17. Cincinnati is driving while down 17-20 with about 5 minutes to go. This is for the AFC North Division Title and a bye in real life. Dalton is locked into Green. I am up 239.45 to 236.40 at the moment. Green gets a 6 yard catch and I am only up 239.45 to 238.00 and then 2 plays later Green gets a short catch and takes it for 17 yards and I conceded the game by losing 239.45 to 239.70 BUT just as I was heartbroken it turns out that Green is hit by Antwon Blake and not only fumbles but is also knocked out of the game. I look at my friend and now he is heartbroken as he ended up losing our championship 239.45 to 237.70 due to this fumble. Craziest ending we ever had in our dynasty league.
  11. Been paying for over 10 years. Use the DD for redrafts, 10 second primer on game days, MFL discount for my dynasty league. I am old school IDP dynasty and some IDP redraft (not the past 3 years though). I don’t do any FanDuel or Daily Fantasy gambling and feel that the focus has shifted towards that. I hardly read the articles (except a few dynasty and IDP ones). I feel the forums are sort of like Rotoworld (which I personally read more than the subscriber articles). I read their site and these forums to get up to date info on players and teams...the articles are not timely enough to be useful. I find these forums more useful and would like content that was brought under the pay umbrella back (like Adam Harsted postings as an example). As I said in another thread...Faust should courtesy Rotoworld when he copies their player blurbs over here to the forums (it is useful to have them but might be considered plagiarism). Anyway...hope this is useful and that you don’t take it as criticism...I love this site!
  12. I brought this up in the other thread...but since everyone is mentioning the “farm team” to be a staffer...that is one of the reasons the boards have declined. By losing the posters to become staff (don’t get me wrong...they all deserve it) it takes away from here in the forums. I would love to see them back and posting more often as it leads to more discussion for me to read. I personally sign up every year just for the DD (when I used to do redraft), 10 second primer, and MFL discount. I never read the articles (except Bloom 100 and Bramel Tiers) as I play exclusively IDP dynasty now. i like the forum content and read it (even if not being part of the discussion). Lately there is a lot less discussion though...for some reasons I stated above. But I find it useful during this time of rookie drafts and also during each week of the season as breaking news comes out. One thing you may want to do (and this is not bashing this person...as he adds valuable content) is to ask Faust to put Rotoworld in the quotes he does about individual players...currently he just puts the quote without using the source and that is a very different thing than when he links to other sites. I don’t know if it could be considered plagiarism or not...but you don’t want Rotoworld coming after the site for not giving them the courtesy after taking their quotes about individual players.
  13. Joe, I am a long time lurker and subscriber for well over 10 years to your site...here is what I have noticed over the past years and why these boards are not nearly the same as they used to be (take this all constructively). A few years ago there were a ton of great posters such as SSOD (know as Adam Harsted) and others of the same who would post a ton of great info. Along the way either you or another site (in the case of Chicago Arch) takes them away from the forums and hires them as staff. By making them staff you took all their great content away from the forums and put them behind the paid firewall (probably to make more money with better content to offer for subscribers). For someone like me who pays it was not a big deal...but in the process it caused these boards to decline majorly as all the good posters now were pay only as subscribers and would write articles instead. As the posters get plucked it causes less interaction here and hence the decline. For those of us who play dynasty and IDP it is really noticeable. I guess a question you need to think about is if you are willing to let all the pay content come back to the boards like it used to be 8-10 years ago. That is the only way you can truly revive these boards back to how they used to be.
  14. For some reason the pre-draft Bloom 100 was taken down...usually you keep it on the site even after the draft? Also...when is his post-draft version going up...I am guessing today based on the pre-draft one disappearing over the weekend? Lastly...will we get a Bramel rookie tiers with IDP article again this year...really hoping he can do one as it is the most useful article for this time of year?
