Wait, do you start a kicker or not? You have rules about FGs, but I didn't see them listed in the starters section.

I was under the impression that you didn't have them when I voted. If you do start kickers, then I'd change my vote on the deadline for acquiring FAs. I had said end of regular season. But that means you either risk being screwed if your kicker breaks his leg in the playoffs, or have to carry a backup, neither of which are good IMO. So I'd change my vote to week 16 if you use the K position.

For the prize money, I have never seen a league where 2nd place did not get a decent amount of cash. In a 12 team league, if you make it to the superbowl and then lose, IMO you should at least get double the entry fee back.

I did not see an option giving money to the runner-up other than "all playoff teams get entry fees back", so I voted other.

prize money: Final 4 teams should get money back. High points team in regular season should be rewarded - as much as SB loser.

Assuming $100 entry fee = $1200

SB winner: $500

SB Runner-up $250

High Points: $250

3rd and 4th place: $100 each

Would love to know what the football guys think about what a fair and optimal system for team defensive scoring is.

The "perfect" league is whatever one you sign up for. There are a lot of options out there, so pick one you like instead of picking one you dont like and constantly complaining about it.

I am not a fan of the "old" way of defensive scoring. Here is what I have grown accustomed to and I like it.

Opponent Punts 1 point each

Fumble Recoveries (from Opponent) 2 points each

Interceptions Caught 2 points each

Sacked a QB 1 point each

Safeties 2 points each

Number of Defensive TDs 6 points each

Opponent Fourth Downs Failed 2 points each

My league is 14x$100

We pay out:

SB Winner: $800

SB Runner-Up: $350

Regular Season Pts: $150

3rd place: $100

It's works well.

In my 12-team league we use the following:

League dues = x; 4 teams make the playoffs.

1st place: 4x

2nd place: 3x

3rd place: 2x

4th place: 1x

Regular season Pts: 2x

Thanks for voting and discussion. Based on the high number of "other" votes to question 4, I will conduct one final poll for that, with the suggestions added.
