Dynasty housekeeping.



Bergeroo's rebuild won't take long, by the looks of it!

Quietly optimistic!

I've been asked about whether we should move the league from Yahoo.

I know Sheriff had this question every year and I recall Sheriff's answer being the one I'm going to give...

I'm quite happy for us to move to a different site, but can we have the same features of the league as we have in this one? 30 man rosters plus 5 IR slots? If not, it's probably going to need everyone to agree to move.

The draft is something we do on Blonde over the course of a few weeks, rather than sitting down and doing it all in one evening. If there's a way of running it all through a different site and saving the Commissioner the faff of manually drafting every roster each summer, that would be attractive. Doing the rookie draft all in one night makes mid-draft trades very tough, with a big theoretical edge to the more experienced players, so that is probably a non-starter.

I wanted to join 1 or 2 more leagues so have been checking out different platforms. Sleeper seems to have everything that yahoo has and a lot more. I just did a startup draft with an 8 hour clock that was paused overnight, so preumably can be extended to a longer period. All the draft picks trading is automatically tracked. IR slots seem to be no problem, you can customize the waiver settings and scoring settings. Roster size seems no issue. Rookie draft can have long clock too as far as I know, though I didnt do one yet. You can just roll over between seasons too.

People who joined in the last few weeks have had a nose around there and maybe a few people like Forth have played on there for a couple of years and have seen the mechanics and perhaps spot a flaw or something missing. I have found it slightly fiddly on desktop and I think it is designed best for mobile but it looks very nice.

If people wanted to do the possible superflex start up league on there then maybe they might want the original league on a different platform to differenciate or maybe would be easier better if they were both in the same place?

After opening 4 more chests all with Spin tickets - I am probably the first player to cancel their RB - after a long conversation with chat I asked them to delete all mtt tickets - spin tickets - casino bonuses - pso tickets - the works

Which after some persuasion they did Hussar - I should now be on zero RB - Hussar - 

not really sure why you would do that?

My sister just got into snooker this year. She knew nothing about it before. She was texting me during the Masters saying things like, "wow, isn't Ronnie amazing?" She literally had no idea who he was before. It was funny and kind of cool that she was just discovering this troubled genius. But even she doesn't like the speed snooker, thinking it is gimmicky and annoying. I wonder who the target audience for it is? To me it is a kind of odd novelty. Seems crazy it is for actual ranking points and it is tough on the big lads when they have to run around the table Smiley

edit for typo

Ok time for name that tune 3, at least one person has gotten a correct answer so far. But i think everyone will get this one. i might have butchered a few of the set moves and added a few moves of my own but i was kinda knackered when i did this.

How have I missed this? 

Agadoo.  no links to that shite, sorry.  might try the others later.

This made me laugh. Very tough! I can't see him pushing pineapple and shaking the tree though in the video, did I miss it? So I'm not sure it is agadoo.

Bonus points for the excellent shirts.

Currently reading The Lost Soul of Eamonn MaGee by Paul Gibson. Won the William Hill Sports book of the year a couple of years back.

About growing up boxing in Belfast during the troubles. Run ins with the IRA. His battles with addiction to drugs, booze and gambling. Just got to the part in 2002 where he fought a youngish Ricky Hatton. Good read so far. Very well written though MaGee comes over as quite unlikeable and a complete mess. I have no idea how he ever made it in the ring for a fight the state he was in most of the time.

Anyone else read it? Any other favourite boxing books?

That Sleeper site looks really good.  I can see there is a recent transactions tab on it. Once the league is set up does it automatically just stay active the whole year round?

Are you using phone or PC? On PC there is the main dialog box in the middle which has all the trades but I can't see an actual trade list. The mobile app is meant to have more feature but I haven't use it, so maybe it is on there? Overall I like it quite a lot.

I love it. The inplay stuff is class. very good piece of Software.

I did a 32 team league last season to try it out. The software is great. As for the 32 teams. Don't do it!

Eeek, what kind of starting line ups were being put out in that league?

It was rough man. I still have nightmares of the players I had to start during bye weeks. Leshaun McCoy got a few starts for me. When my QB Newton was out for a few weeks then it was desperate times.

Sport is brutal man.

Goff was the 1.01 pick - franchise QB, took them to a Superbowl, seemed to have a few not amazing games this season but they make the playoffs and beat the Seahawks (as underdogs I think?) a very good team and then lost as the underdogs to the Packers. Goff did not throw a pick in either of those games. Yes the defence of the Rams has been immense but really how much of an upgrade is Stafford over Goff? The main criticism of Goff it seems is he isn't very mobile. Well Stafford hardly has Lamar Jackson levels of movement himself. And then they just dump Goff. Stafford is probably a bit better, he is super tough and guts it out and gives everything every game. I hope he does well and also I guess his contract his quite a bit less.

Did Goffs stock really go down so much this season? I think really they realised how they messed up with his contract and just wanted to get out of it, right?

Anyone think it was a good deal for the Rams?

A really weird deal. I can't help thinking that Detroit didn't do too badly out of it.

auction would be fun. It isn't in Sleeper yet but they are planning to add it very soon.

I'm just happy there are no kickers!

I see kickers in there...

Leave the kickers in please. (can you tell which position I played?)

What was your longest field goal? Honestly seems like a nightmare position. Do nothing all game and then all the pressure is on you for the big moment.

I have to rail Matt Prater again with his 'Big Leg'

Can we trade yet or are we on hiatus? I will have one too many running backs so who wants Henry, Montgomery or Ekeler?
