    Right! as Ballerz and TMC rightly have pointed out, it is that time of year again where we should start thinking about fantasy basketball!!! :rock: :partydance:

    Didnt realise it had come around that quick to be honest, so perhaps we should think about starting a board draft on September 30th?

    Really hope we can have a league this year, as not having one last year was really disappointing if Im honest............damn, if we cannot get say 10 teams out of a basketball forum then what are we!? :?

    So, under the threat of extreme violence and signing you all up to Scientology junk mail barrages if you do not sign up.................whos in? :D

    Ohh, I also assume we are going to scrap the keeper status we had for the last league we did, as well as draft position dictated by final league standings, as there is obviously so much change in terms of who is managing teams.............might as well just start a fresh?

    :shrug: A football one? That league filled up quickly. We might have to change the focus of the board if we can't find enough participants for a basketball league... :lol:

    Yeah, and there are no defenses to draft here, so it's going to be a good test for you, Chum. Better have some help. :lol:

    Nah, j/k. Glad to have you on board. And don't worry about not being around til after september. If we start on september 30th, you might miss about one pick. Just send a list of players you want to Bigs and he'll make the pick for you.

    PAT!!! Can't believe we've been able to lure you into a fantasy league!!! Welcome aboard, bro!

    Don't worry, we'll make sure to give you all the help you need. We'll do whatever it takes to have you in the best position to keep your promise and be f*cking terrible in your first fantasy season!!! :lol:



    Oh, and yeah, draft on the board. Let's ignore the keeper's league we had. It's way too old.


    btw, I guess we can count with E-Man and XBay, as they've been some of the most reliable members for fantasy bball leagues on this board (and TOS). And Quazz as well. You in, guys?

    No, it was close but Brandon Marshall's performance vs the terrible Colts' D saved me from that ignominious fate.


    On the other side, I think there's a real chance that can happen this week.

    I'm in. Taking it down this year, so we might as well just start debating on who will take 2nd place ;)

    12 teams is ideal, but as bigs said, it's pretty difficult getting that many from our WRT fam. We'd have to do some recruiting.

    Re: WRT FANTASY BASKETBALL 12/13 - No F'ing About This Year!

    Ok everyone, set up the league and tinkered with some settings a little..............so sign up and let me know what you think.

    Nothing major, stat cats are the standard 9..............at the moment its set to 6 playoff teams but obviously if we can get 12, then will change that to 8 (think having 8 playoff spots in a 10 team league is a little crazy).

    Made the rosters a big bigger, with the positions at = PG, SG, G, SF, PF, F, C, C, UTIL, UTIL, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN.............slightly different to our old ones, where we had 3 utility spots but only 3 bench spots.

    Reason behind that, I think having more bench spots in fantasy basketball makes it more strategic, as its not just about throwing in your best team and leaving it (some may not like that).

    Max 50 moves per season and 6 per week is new..............so to stop waiver wire spamming, especially come playoff time.

    Cant think of anything else Ive messed with our changed, let me know what you guys think and we can sort it out but wanted to get a start on it.

    Re: WRT FANTASY BASKETBALL 12/13 - No F'ing About This Year!

    Sounds good, Bigs.

    But, just wondering, but if you want to make it more strategic, why not reduce the number of positions available? I mean, maybe don't use the UTIL spots, or reduce accordingly the non-defined G/F, or maybe just one C... but the more positions in play, the less strategic it gets, because you can use more players and don't have to choose between them.

    Just an idea, tho. I'm perfectly fine with the current settings. But I think I'd like to play in one fantasy league that "resembles" real life one of these years. Maybe something like PG, SG, ,SF, PF, C, UTIL, UTIL, BN, BN, BN, with a dramatically reduced number of moves (around 15 sounds right) per season to avoid too many changes.

    That might be a huge change for our league, so we better stay with the settings you posted, Bigs. But I'm thinking I might have a league like that one next year, once I have more free time and can organize one. I think it could be really fun if done properly.
