To all TOL'ers,

It gives me great joy to introduce this year's TheologyOnline/TruthSmack Fantasy Football League 2004.

This league is open to all members of TheologyOnline/TruthSmack.com

If you want to join the league, please email me. The address is drbrumley@gatorzone.com or just post here and I will PM you for information to send the invitation to your email.

(Note: All of last year's teams need not request an invitation. Your team name and email address are still located at our league homepage. All rosters from last year have been deleted. If you have trouble logging on or forgot your username or password, let me know so I can fix it for you.)

So buckle up, and start the trash talking. It's finally here.

I will create a rules thread so everyone can see and no misunderstandings happen.

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL

Did you give any consideration to my suggestion about weekly roster changes? I'll even do all the leg work adding up the scores of each game!

Jefferson

My suggestion is that any team can have any player any week, even if the other team you're playing already has some of those same players. This will require all team owners to really pay attention to each NFL team's strengths and weaknesses every week instead of just picking players the first week of the season and then just sitting back and watching how it all pans out the rest of the year . . . :yawn:

I don't think it is fair that one or two owners should bear the burden of the expense. I recently learned that the league had to be bough. I did not know that last year. I think we all should defray this cost if we have the means to do so. I intend to help bare this burden and I hope that the rest of the owners are of the same mind.

I'm sure if you PM him he can give you the details.

btw... you don't get to actually tackle any guys if that is the kind of "fantasy" you were hoping for. :chuckle:

Hey all.

You can definately count me in...

Also, having done many football leagues in the past at our own church plus public leagues online, may I make a suggestion.

drbrumley may already have this in mind. But yahoo has completely free leagues. Yahoo takes care of all the stats, every week. There has to be a commissioner who sets up the league, all done on Yahoo, and very easy to do. The commissioner provides all the teams with a league I.D. and password. The the teams join that "Private League". We can have an online draft and Yahoo takes care of the rest. Very easy user freindly system.

If you guys have any questions let me know....

cur_deus_homo
August 4th, 2004, 08:35 AM
I agree. I ran a Yahoo! league last year, and it was very easy to run.

It's mostly up to drbrumley, though.

BillyBob

Sure would be nice if we fixed our teams before we lose the entire first weekend...

:sozo: Is there a Doctor in the house????

elected4ever
September 11th, 2004, 02:42 PM
The DR. is not in the house at the moment. He is in Texas and we here at the homestead are dealing with some more immediate matters at the moment named Charley, Francis and Ivan. Hang in there folks. This I know is a rough start but all is not lost yet.

BB, I am aware of your need for a trade but the CBS site will not recognize my password and so i do not even know what players I have at the moment. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

BillyBob
September 11th, 2004, 03:28 PM
Thanks for the correspondence, e4e. I realize that Doc is in Texas, I guess seeing his girlfriend is much more important than playing Fantasy Football. [It would be for me, too! :kiss:]

I don't know if Doc realizes that all but one of our teams is illegal and there isn't anything we can do about it. The guys I tried to pick up last Wednesday on waivers are going to be released to me next Wednesday, so I'll have a legal team for next weekend.

It looks like 'Ivan' may be heading your way early next week. Good Luck!!!

Go buy some plywood and batten down the hatches! :eek:


[you can get the website to tell you your password, I had to do the same thing]

drbrumley
September 12th, 2004, 10:44 AM
Ok folks,

All is not lost. There have been some glitches this year. I'm looking into the problem but also need CBS' help. The only problem there is that thier office was directly impacted by Francis and messed things up on thier end. They should be up and running by Monday. So if you will, please be patient. This weeks games will count and I will have your scores right.

It would help if you let me know what problems you are expercieng so I can get in the system and see if I can resolve it from my end now. Otherwise hold tight, and I promise your scores will be right very soon.

BillyBob

Hey TOLer's,

I'm really sorry about the events the past week as it relates to TOL Fantasy Football.

By looking at it today, it seems some may have given up or are not entirely happy about what has taken place. I share your sentiment. But I am trying to move on with it, but to do so I need your help and cooperation.

I have just been notified by CBS that they have everything up and running and there will be no glitches in the system. With this news, I would like to delete all rosters and draft again the RIGHT way. I would set the draft up for Friday and then I have two days to set everyones lineup for week 1 and by Sunday all scores would be then updated and correct win/loss records also.

Please work with me here.

drbrumley
September 15th, 2004, 11:44 AM
This also means when the draft takes place, your correct position in the draft order is this.

Jabez
The Snipers
Knight's Avalanche
The Ridge Runners
Redneck Commie Killers
PC Gators
The Troglodytes
Sozo's Ranters ( HAS ANYONE HEARD FROM HIM?)

Please work with me here. Don't worry about it.

Its not your fault and fantasy football isn't worth getting upset about.

Personally... I love my roster and am having fun tweaking it. Why don't we just keep what we have and work out the glitches?

But if you want to redraft that's fine with me as well.

I will stand behind any decision you make.

Hey Doc, I've been working my butt off to get the team I have, I'm OK with playing what we've got. [not that it's that good of a team, but it'll do]

If you want to redraft, let's do it NOW so we have time to set our teams and ADD/Drop in time for this weekend.

Other than that, just score us all for the teams we played last weekend and let's move on........

BillyBob
September 15th, 2004, 12:11 PM
I don't think Sozo is playing, he hasn't posted in awhile and I don't think has has done anything with his team.

Maybe you should e-mail him or find a poster who will take his team.

Ok, it's pretty simple. I'll send you an invite and you sign up. From there, we will draft our players. You can rank your players according to how you want them drafted, (this is no guarantee you will get them being if someone ranks a player higher than you did) and then you have your team. Then all you have to set your starting lineup and watch them on Sunday score points for you. If your (starters) beat the other teams starters in points, then you win for that week. At the end of the year, just as in real football, the one with best records (top 4 teams) goes into the playoffs. Just like real football. Did I help you in understanding alittle?

September 16th, 2004, 04:45 AM
Hey Doc, after you delete players, you should just let the computer pick our teams and not mess with letting us pick our top choices. That will only complicate matters and my guess is that not all the coaches will get to it in time and it might not be fair any way other than letting the computer pick [assuming it will do it right this time].

Besides, we're all gonna pick Priest Holmes, anyway! :D

You go from there.........

drbrumley

Rank them how you would think a player is to you. If you feel Peyton manning will do better than Preist Holmes, then you would rank peyton over priest and so on down the line.

I ranked my top 25 choices, then let the rest stand. The program also takes into consideration the preferences you can set up under "teams I like, teams I follow, and teams I dislike."

I'm fairly happy with my team...'cept for my special teams squads. they're unspectacular.

cattyfan's conquerors are ready to roll.

What I am going to do here is I'm going to take the draft picks and whoever scored the best during the Week 1 games, I will put as your starter. This goes for everyone. This way everyone is on equal footing right at the beginning. You can trade and add/drop now if you like. I sure am when my best QB is gasp: David Carr.

Not a problem, thats what Im here for.

To bypass the waivers just to pick up a player, you might just want to go to the players tab, which is next to the transactions tab, and pick your players from there.

drbrumley
September 17th, 2004, 12:46 PM
That is provided noone dropped a player and then you immediately want to pick him up, then the waiver rule applies

Ok Guys and Gals,

You can now go back to week 1 and look at your lineup to whoever you thought you would start and post here to let me know who should or should not be active.

The worst part of getting everything up to date is just about done and it will be smooth sailing ahead.

Jefferson, sorry about not gettin back to you on your PM. You think maybe you can find your way around this our league web pages? Everything is pretty self explanatory on what to do when it comes to adjusting others teams lineups or doing add/ drop for them. I'm not asking you to do a whole lot, just if needed, making adjustments here and there if the need arises. You cool with that?

Three things to look at: [in the collumns next to each player]
1. Average
2. Guru
3. Percentages of who owns them and who starts them

Higher numbers are better, obviously.

Also, each player has a summery availible if you click his name, it will help a lot.

You could move one of your Running Backs out of Reserve and use him to replace one of your Tight Ends. :idea:

You can check how you rank against each team weekly and as you move players around and see what the 'Guru' thinks about it.

Go to 'Scoreboard' and click 'Preview'. You'll see it change as you move players around.
