I would like to start a 4 sport fantasy dynasty league. There would be fantasy football, basketball, baseball, and hockey, 4 separate leagues, payouts for each league champ, runner-up, and extra payout for overall champ, and runner-up. Now here's the big twist, there would be 1 single draft that would combined all players from all the 4 different sports (ex. L. James goes #1 overall, A. Rodgers goes #2, A. Ovechkin goes #3 overall, etc). Also inter-sport trading would be allowed. Obviously there is no website or software (that I am aware of) that can do this so it would have to be an offline draft and the commish would have to load in the rosters manually at the start of each respective season in the first year and then would be able to roll over as a keeper league the next year.
One huge problem here is when to do the draft, as there is always at least one sport in season. After putting some thought into this I think that the best time to do the draft is soon after the NFL draft. We would miss the beginning of the baseball season, but I figured that football has the biggest impact from rookies and the baseball season is long enough where missing a little bit of the season wouldn't be a huge deal. Haven't yet decided on how to score overall rankings. A point based system? Average finish in all leagues?
Let me know what you guys think of this. Any ideas/suggestions are more than welcome.
here's a link to a google doc. where I've been trying to organize rules/scoring and such. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqTC53hjkkv_dFM0eU1QY1BQTnBtZ1hCeHJiUG51Y1E
