$50 12-TEAM YAHOO POINTS LEAGUE (100% Payback) - FILLED!

Postby jason_boris » Fri Feb 20, 2009 12:32 am

Hey guys! I am currently looking for new interested owners to fill up the 6 remaining spots (now just 1 remaining) in our league (Black Diamond League).

I have been organizing this league for the past eight years and I take great pride in offering the best league I possibily can. The league is well-established and has been very successfull thanks to a great group of players (past and present), so the only thing I ask in maintaining the integrity of this league is that all managers be active and competitive for the entire season.

The league is a $50 Yahoo League (12 teams) with 100% payback. All teams must be paid in advance of the draft order selection (which will be conducted via random dice rolls through an online website with the highest roll choosing his/her draft slot and so on down to the lowest remaing roll.....it's really a cool and strategic way of determining draft order).

Prizes are as follows:
1st Place - $400
2nd Place - $150
3rd Place - $50

The league is a TOTAL POINTS league (not weekly, not head-to-head, not roto). In a Fantasy Points League, points are awarded based on how well your players perform in each of several statistical categories. All real-life statistics have associated point values, and each player's points are summed to produce your daily total. The team which accumulates the highest amount of cumulative points at the end of the entire season is deemed the winner.

The draft date is currently set for Sunday, March 29 at 8:00 p.m. (EST). However, this date and time is subject to change to better accomodate the league.

After running this league for 8 years, and after several tweaks and changes, I am very comfortable with the current settings and scoring system, as I feel it is very "fair" across the board. I am including all of the league settings and scoring rules below so you can familiarize yourself with the league before making any committments:

One of the league veterans just expressed interest in dropping out because his wife is having their first child this summer. He told me to look to see if I can find any other interested players? If no one steps up, he said he'll just play out the season (although with a little less time on his hands...lol).

If you are interested, please send me an email at "jason_boris@hotmail.com" or else just reply back on here.

Everybody else in the league already has their money in, so I would need your money ASAP (prior to the draft). We're currently in the middle of doing dice rolls to select draft position, so if I fill the slot, I would need to do so by this Friday at the lastest.

Thanks,
~ Jason ~
