The MKIA League is now all full again. However, if you're interested in getting on our short waitlist for potential future vacancies, please feel free to contact me (or post in this thread).
Thanks much for your interest.
And have a great new year (both in FBB and that other so-called "real life"
The MKIA League is 5 years old (going on 6) and currently looking for a new, highly active, competitive GM to take over one team (out of 18).
It's a 6x6 ROTO (w/ traditional 5x5 plus OPS and Holds), salary dynasty league partially run on CBS Sportsline. We use a 40-man roster w/ a minimum of 10 spots reserved for prospects -- and youngsters signed as prospects are protected via annually renewed contracts for upto 3 years *beyond*
loss of prospect status. We also have additional annual protection for FA-to-be players via Franchise Player and Restricted FA designations (ie."tags", of one each for each team, which are tradeable for upto ~15 months ahead of time) to be applied at the start of each new year circa mid-January. There's also an annual prospect draft in March -- and prospects from the annual real life amateur June draft are excluded from free agency until after that annual MKIA draft.
Free agents are typically acquired via open auctions (from preseason thru end of the regular season). Restricted FAs go thru a silent bid process at the start of the preseason -- and the restricting team can choose to match the high bid or pass for the high bidder to sign. Franchise Players are resigned to their real life contracts at base salaries (sans option years). Each protected youngster resign at the start of each regular season at real life base salary or the salary at which he was originally acquired as a prospect (whether at draft slot salary or prospect auction salary), whichever's higher.
Signed players may be waived to free agency w/ 50% salary obligation owed for the remainder of their contracts (and there are provisions for obligation reduction as they resign to new contracts, etc.). Our 2011 salary cap will be $106M -- and it currently escalates by $2M per year.
There is a modest $20 annual league fee largely to cover the cost of using CBS (and modest prize payouts) although we *might*
consider moving to another host like ESPN to reduce cost -- the fee is paid at the start of each new year.
If interested, please check the league forum site for details (eg. rules, league setup, etc) and fire me a PM or email or YIM me. http://mlbknowitalls.proboards.com/index.cgi
The currently available teams are:No Current Vacancy
As a new GM, you will be allowed forgiveness of one player contract obligation of your choice (whether via a free player drop or forgiveness of previous player drop obligation).
Please provide some info about yourself and your FBB experiences when submitting your interest -- and also let us know which team you want, if we have multiple openings. Please also spend some time going thru the rules
, including the various announcement posts that have some rules revisions/addendums that may not have been updated to the regular rules section yet.
Thanks for your interest...
