Hi Everyone, some friends of mine are starting a new league this year with some fun, quirky rules and we're looking for a few new owners to join.
The league is called Black Sails and is a pirate-themed league with relegation, superflex, and mid-season plunder and post-season pillage - a brief summary of these elements below. Also, the league rules and message board ARRRRRR in all pirate speak. This is a redraft league, we're hosting this on MFL, it is PPR - RB 0.5, WR 0.75 and TE (and all others) 1.0 point/reception and the buy-in is $60.
1) Relegation: after year 1, there will be 2 leagues with separate player pools: Upper league (Black Pearl) and lower league (Flying Dutchman). After the first year, we will be separated into the two leagues based on how you finish (top half, bottom half). After that, every year, 4 teams will move up from Flying Dutchman, and 4 teams will be relegated (move down) from Black Pearl.
2) Superflex: each league will have 8 teams with separate player pools. As a result, we added a Superflex (QB/RB/WR/TE), to encourage people to roster at least 2 QBs, so we will have 16-20 QBs drafted off the board in each league (rather than 8-10).
3) Plunder and Pillage: This is when it gets weird and piratey. The plunder takes place mid-season and basically offers you the chance to steal one player from another team (and other teams to steal one player from your team). The pillage takes place in between regular season and playoffs and allows the playoff teams to steal one player from the non-playoff teams. There are some more specifics to how this will function, but it's a fun way to redistribute wealth in the league. For both the plunder and pillage, you are able to protect one player from your team from being stolen.
