Fantasy Hockey 07/08
« on: September 01, 2007, 06:17:21 PM »
Okay everyone I set up a league for us today.  Hopefully you all know the drill.  Go sign up and pick a seven man team using a salary cap of $30 mil.  This time I suggest that we all pitch in $10 to make it more interesting.  We can do winner take all or maybe winner take most and second gets his money back or something.  Depends how much interest we have and how many of you bastards actually pay.  A small sum of money makes things that much more interesting.

The website splits the season into two separate seasons and then playoffs.  So I was thinking we could do Season 1 and Season 2, which encompasses the regular season as one whole deal.  They don't keep the points but we can just record the points at the end of Season 1 and add them to the Season 2 totals to get a grand total.  Or if everyone prefers we can just have two separate rounds.  We also need to consider the playoff round.  That can be separate too or we can have three rounds for the grand prize, we would just record the regular season totals and add them on.

Anyway, without further ado:

Go to http://fantasygames.sportingnews.com/ and scroll down to Fantasy Hockey Challenge Season 1.  Register a free account if you haven't already done so.  Enter your team name and then join the league.

League:  The Gong Show
Pass:  gong

Then give me $10 and wait until September 29th to let the fun begin.  Simple.

By the way this is a basic league as opposed to a pro league.  The main difference is in a basic league there is no ability to buy extra trades so you are stuck with only 2 free ones a week.  It just makes things simplier and that way we can all avoid temptation.

And finally, at the risk of going on too long.  Can everyone post here what their preference is for season length.  Just let me know if you want Season 1, Season 2, and Play-offs to be three separate competitions or any other combination of the above.  If we do all three together we could bump it up from $10 but let me know about that as well.  I'm fine with doing all three in one big competition and leaving it at $10.  Lots of value for the money.  So let me know.

Let the games begin.

Fine with me so long as I get Mark Bell.  Oh yeah, and Pierre Turgeon, he's super.

Whenever works.  I would likely prefer everyone's cash before the season starts otherwise I know it will be problematic.

Just for shits I joined the facebook hockey pool too.  I sent some of you an invite so do it.  I'm sure it will be quite impossible to win it however.  Worth a shot though.
