  1. Hey everyone, I wanted to get a quick post up as the seasons winds down. LLD is a great long running league. Unfortunately, life and time has created some turn-over the past few years. I wanted to lay out a to do list for myself and the league in general so that we can stay on track and get an early start on the off-season activities and cruise confidently into NFL 2019 enjoying this great hobby via LLD! I have tried to do a good job serving as interim commish and roster (what years ago in the pipeline business we called a hand) – basically the low paid person who does all the grunt work. First of all, as we move forward – 2018 deserves to be celebrated and hats off to our 2018 LLD Champion Brentastic. To Do List: · Rules – Berlin to do task of duplicating the DAD official rules to mirror LLD and post in the correct format · Rule - Changes – Berlin to post any votes that are posted. Returning Status: Please weigh in on your 2019 intentions. So far only MWG is out. Berlin Lipstick Bomb/Berlin - IN Octoskins/Mattyice76 - IN (This is my step-son Mattie Ice – he would like to remain in the league and has done a solid job so far. Any concerns please post.

  2. Rule Changes Thread

    I think the biggest decision we need to decide on is the off-season schedule. Beginning in March we have one week of free agency. Then in late March we have the franchise tag process followed by the RFA season leading up to the rookie draft in May. See green paste: We have consistently had poor participation in some of the off-season activities and some have questioned should we bump it back to later in the year. Some owners really liked the early calendar activities as it filled a dead period but for this type of league to work it needs a large percentage of participation. Examples are owners with huge dollar balances not even bidding, other owners getting steals due to limited participation, FT and RFA with about 30-40% owners involved. I would like to put schedule changes to a vote but we need some structure to actually vote on. Bump all activities to May and let the rookie draft follow FA week, Franchise tag, and RFA period Have the rookie the 3rd week in May and then commence FA, FT, RFA Leave it alone Maybe some other ideas for structure to vote on? Subject to League Vote - Changes March 21st - One week of free agency begins (only FA period prior to NFL Draft). The last new free agency auction that can be started is on March 27th @ 11:59 PM EST.

  11. 2018 LLD PLAYOFFS !!!!!!!

    You had a great year but your team tanked - happens. I lost a playoff game this year on a Thursday Elias stat change. This tweet will help you put things in perspective. Lots of bitching on here about changing playoff formats because your “dominant” team didn’t make the finals this year. Why don’t we just treat y’all like 2nd graders and hand out participation trophies to every league owner, that way your little feelings are hurt. (the really bad word)ing another really bad word 10:27 AM - 18 Dec 2018 20 Retweets 177 Likes Hey, I have an idea. Whoever scores the most points this season in the NFL is crowned Super Bowl Champion. Let’s also take away the Giants Super Bowl win against NE because NE was undefeated and therefore a better team and more deserving of the crown. (the really bad word)ing pampered pansies.

  13. 2018 LLD PLAYOFFS !!!!!!!

    ***BOND BOWL*** 2018 LLD Leaderboard Round 2 Week 15 Bond Bowl Playoffs After week 14, below is a quick view of the state of the 6 playoff contenders. 1. 1. Mr Big 157.35 Everything came together in New England to help pace a big playoff week1 for Mr. Big. Brady and Gronk getting on track proved very timely. This team is so well rounded at the moment with multiple starters posting high point totals. There is also some bench help waiting in the wings. Mr. Big will be hard to beat but anything can happen over the next two weeks. 2. 2. Faberge Legg Warmers 145.85 (11.5 behind) Despite the late week announcement of no OBJ, despite Antonio Brown having a very sub-par game, ----- Faberge finds himself right in the thick of this three-week playoff. This is a star powered offense lead by the NYG stud rookie SB and red-hot running back CMC. The Legg Warmers have to be considered a strong contender to house the title especially if one of the QB’s can get hot. 3. 3. DB5 137.45 (19.9 behind) In only his second year in the league, DB5 is off to a nice week 1 start in the playoffs. Anything can happen especially when you have the wonder kid QB Mahomes pacing your squad. DB will need more strong performance from Jared (who knew) Cook in Oakland and some of the lesser known Wr’s on the roster. ONE can only wonder about the head start Mr. Derrick Henry would have given this squad in the lineup but in fairness NOONE saw that one coming. Let’s see if DB can find a starting spot this week for Henry before he comes crashing back to normal-normal land. 4. 4. Oddjob’s Hats 129.65 (27.7 behind) I find myself writing again about Monkey as a playoff contender. Monkey dominated the league in high scoring weeks this year with 7!!!! total skins. However, some of his stud players are dropping off their mad pace at the wrong time. He needs Gurly,Kamara and Thielen to find the magic again plus the loaded TE combo of Ertz and Kelce. As I type this write up I am figuring out what loaded teams this league has so wow…. Good luck in figuring it out Monkey 5. 5. Thunderballs 129.15 (28.2 behind) The player, owner, commish legend of ElectricRelish has turned into a shadow of his former BOTH self. Random mysterious appearances plus often supported by his partner the great Muto – he continues to lurk behind the scenes. I realized late in the year that ER was keeping a close eye on the potential of this squad when I saw some unexpected FA bids pop up. He is within a few decimal points of the #1 seed after week 1. His team does not have nearly the star power of the four previous mentioned teams, but I am really pulling for you ER. Would be a nice win for you. 6. 6. Dr. Julius No 110.60 (46.75 behind) Pan may want to spend more time in dirty molars in the rainy northwest after this week one performance…….. I jest kind of. This squad has some young strong talent with a local talent in Lockett emerging as a WR 1 this year. This squad will need some un-predicted magic from players to have a chance and leading that charge needs to be Dalvin Cook. Funchess seems to have checked into the zero-burger lounge so Pan may need to find a replacement.
