  1. If you got it going Irish...i'd be up for it
  2. I have been running a semi-keeper league for close to 10 years which was one of the first Huddle leagues to have a live draft. In this league you are allowed to trade future draft picks for players in and out of season. Once you set this as potential for your owners you open yourself up to letting owners do as they wish. Players who will not be keepers the following years don't have as much value as players that can be kept. Even if it is a Brady. However, players going for the playoffs will value 1 year players higher then others. Unfortunately, unless it is something totally off the wall you have to allow your owners to make the trades as they see fit. Brady for a 6th round pick could be considered reasonable. I'd try to get more but if I were out of the playoffs and playing for next year I would want the right to trade him for the value I am looking for. Brady for a 17th round pick? Well that would be nixed. From experience, if you don't allow your owners to trade for future picks and it is in the rules that they can, you will lose your owners. I would be happy to discuss this further...feel free to email me. Storm
  3. What percentage of budget do you usually allocate to QB, RB and WR? This is my first foray into Auction drafting. Am I way off in allocating...47% to RB, 36% to WR and 10% to QB?
  4. The Philadelphia Area Fantasy Football League is entering it's 9th year. This league is made up of Local area Fantasy football owners in the Philly area who frequently post on any of the 3 major boards (Huddle, Footballguys or FFToday). In the first 8 years we have only had 2 re-peat champions due to the competitiveness of this league. The league fees are $ 100 with an additional $ 12 for each owner as we use MFL and a Stand up draft board for easy use. Our league site for you to review is http://football14.myfantasyleague.com/2008/home/24162. This is a 3 player keeper league as long as 1 player is a rookie from the prior year otherwise an owner can only keep 2 players. We reward good drafting in this league for keepers so if you draft well and happen to draft Jones-Drew in the 13th round then he will be your 13th round keeper year in and year out unless you trade or drop him. Standard decimal scoring and we are a PPR league as well. Our league message board at the Huddle is http://forums.thehuddle.com/index.php?showforum=22. Please feel free to review our league site and posting board. Contact me if interested at sbard29770@aol.com. Our draft is being held on Tuesday September 8th at 6 p.m. located at Nick's Roast Beef in Springfield, PA (Bout 30 minutes outside of Philly) The team available is as follows: Player YTD Pts Bye Drafted Cutler, Jay DEN QB 328.16 8 12 Favre, Brett NYJ QB (Q) 245.36 5 11 Orton, Kyle CHI QB 207.80 8 12 Betts, Ladell WAS RB 64.30 10 8 Brown, Ronnie MIA RB 205.04 4 4 Lynch, Marshawn BUF RB 234.70 6 1 McGahee, Willis BAL RB (P) 135.40 2 7 Williams, Ricky MIA RB 138.50 4 5 Boldin, Anquan ARI WR 262.60 7 2 Bradley, Mark KCC WR 89.38 6 7 Marshall, Brandon DEN WR 252.70 8 16 Walter, Kevin HOU WR 196.90 2 7 White, Roddy ATL WR 253.80 7 4 Carlson, John SEA TE ® 144.30 4 13 Scaife, Bo TEN TE 124.40 6 1 Folk, Nick DAL PK 115.10 10 13 Gould, Robbie CHI PK 129.10 8 17 Ravens, Baltimore BAL Def 153.00 2 11 Year 1 league fees for this team is $ 35 (as there was some issues with the previous owner) Let me know if interested through e-mail and you can also post here if you like. League rules can be found on the MFL site. Storm
  5. Once again it is time for Huddlers to step up to the challenge of joining the Team representing the Huddle Boards in a competition between 8 Fantasy Football Web site Message Boards. This year there is a drastic change as we will have 1 league of 8 boards. The participant boards include: TheHuddle, Footballguys, FFToday, The Sports Outlaw, The Whiz, Fantasy Guru, FF Extreme and FF Live Wire Each website picks 12 members from their boards to represent the website in a competition against each other. That’s right fellas and ladies, 96 teams in 1 league, the ultimate in competition and football acumen. So how does it work you might ask? There are 8 separate drafts. Each of these 8 drafts have a minimum of 1 participants from each of the 8 boards with the max from anyone 1 board being 2 participants from any 1 board. These 8 drafts are spread out over a 3 week period and the draft is through MFL and a slow draft (timer between 8 to 12 hours). What makes this league unique is the fact that you can trade in and out of your original draft and can trade in and out of any of the 8 drafts. The only rule being that you can not own 2 of the same player (you can’t own 2 Adrian Peterson’s of the Vikings). There is a possibility that you could be drafting in all 8 drafts based on your trades. It is also possible that the Huddle Team could own all 8 Adrian Peterson’s as with 8 drafts means there are 8 Peterson’s to be drafted. Each Huddler owner drafts whom ever they want and you will be playing 7 teams each week (1 each from the other boards) once the season begins. However, as much as FF is an individual sport, this league is not just an individual accomplishment you are part of the Huddle Team. In the 9 years of existence The Huddle team has won the Team championship more than any other board in this league (we have won 3 times). The 2009 representatives of the league will be:. Wolverines - Will be returning Budlitebrad (Those Guys) – Will be returning StormChasers – Will be returning Memphis– will be returning LosGatos – Will be returning Soaring Eagle - Will be joining the team in 2009 TFord - Will be joining the team in 2009 Infinity - Will be joining the team in 2009 Crippler - Will be joining the team in 2009 Goopster - Will be joining the team in 2009 BPWallace49 - Will be joining the team in 2009 Washington D - Is able to do the league if needed but would like to see if we can find a replacement Therefore I am looking for 1 Huddler to replace Washington D and perhaps 1 or 2 others who would be able to help out if needed. There is no fee to join this league, what is required is that you are able to dedicate a fair amount of your time, particularly between the last week of July and the last week of August. The 8 drafts run during this time and you will want to dedicate a good amount of time to seek out trades, make trades and make your picks. Additionally, this is a team and we have our own private posting boards to discuss strategy, players we like/dislike and help each other to get all 12 of our teams as strong as possible because in the end we want to kick the sh!t out of every other board and win the championship for the Huddle boards. This is your chance to compete against very knowledgeable FFers as you do with Huddler’s but now we get to show the FF world that The Huddle has the best knowledge on the web. To give you an idea on some of the competition, FBG has some of their writers on the FBG team. This would be like playing against DD or WW from The Huddle. Post your interest here and e-mail me at sbard29770@aol.com with the subject titled (I am interested in IBL for the Huddle) In your e-mail send me some of your FF experience and if you have played in any BOTH leagues. If you’ve been boasting that you are a great FF player and you think you’ve got the knowledge to compete against the best, than we want you on this team. Please feel free to ask any addition questions you might have and I will answer them for you. Oh…scoring is basic scoring with PPR (we just added PPR last year). StormChasers
  6. Right now the team is full but I am going to put RC and Infinity as alternates just in case something happens close to the draft. The 2 of you will be first in line for any openings in the future.
  7. RC - Can you e-mail me at sbard29770@aol.com.
  8. I'll add you to the list and let you know.
  9. As an update: It looks as though Perch and Budlite may not be back as I have yet to hear form them. Memphis is trying to best to come back and will give me an update on June 5th. I have asked that all 2008 members get in touch with me by June 5th or I will have to move on. Thus far I have asked the following owners to take part on the Huddle team: Soaring Eagle Washington D TFord Tazinib1 Crippler I also e-mailed Goopster, Irish and suckmyvick as they have all expressed interest in the past. Goopster wants in and he will get the next spot as he showed interest in previoius years. BPWallace is new to the Huddle so I'd like to give those that expressed an interest in IBL previously the first shot before I include BP on the team. If we do lose Perch and Memphis and Rez which could happen, I believe we will have a good team with those that are on the team now and those that have expressed interest. I will keep you updated on progress of the team. Storm
  10. Long time Huddler who I know very well and asked if he'd be interested in coming back to the IBL. It would be good to have someone who knows this league well and someone who trades like a madman in this league.
  11. No Problem - still looking for more Huddlers
  12. Not familiar with him but if you know him go ahead and try to get him.
  13. Just let me know IRISH. I think you have my cell phone # from last year. If not just e-mail me and we can chat. Storm
  14. Taz, I still haven't received an e-mail from you. I posted on the other site as well. can you e-mail me?
