I have a plan, or at least an idea for a plan, so we might as well get started.

If you were in the ABA last year, please let me know what your plans are for the coming season. Able is in the process of setting up a site for us and I'd like to get an idea how many of us will be returning.

I'd like to start the draft no later than October 14th. If we can work it out, we will use the 24 hour draft clock like we did last season. Last years draft was completed in less than a week. So I think that sould allow us plenty of time.

One other thing.

The ABA Keeper League is now full but there are still posters on here that have interest in playing. Would anyone have an interest in helping form a 3rd league? It could be a yearly league like the ABA, or a Keeper. We would need someone to step up and assume the commissioner duties as well.

Anyone?

I was in the ABA last year, and I would like to return this season, if we can find a replacement site for sports.ws, that would be great.

I'm in again. :)

I am having second thoughts about the Keeper League, however, so if someone wants in badly enough I may be willing to relinquish my spot. With having school and two jobs now, it may be too difficult to focus on two fantasy leagues.

I have a new baby coming right about the start of the league this year, so I'm probably not gonna make it this time. Maybe the follwoing year.:(

First of all Congratulations. Secondly ... I could choose your team for you, so you could take over the players that haven't been traded yet, I mean your team, later on in the season :drool: :D:D:D

Oh, yeah, I would like to be in again too. This year the trophy will go out of the States for sure :).

Count me in for one more year.

I haven't been able to put the time in the last couple of years that I like to. Hopefully that'll change this season but if it doesn't it'll be my last one.

Unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to participate this year.

I loved playing last season, and enjoyed the company of all the active owners. However, I'm now at a point where I don't feel as though I'll have enough time to invest in the league (for various reasons). I don't want to be one of those owners that ruins it for everyone else, so I'm going to step aside this year for someone who can positively dedicate themselves.

Good luck everyone!

This is the group we're still waiting to hear from.

Pacer Fan in AZ
Peck
Number 7
Roaming Gnome

I've sent PM's to everyone on that list except Dipperdunk who hasn't been on the board since June & Pacer Fan in AZ whom I can't fine on the Members List.

As for the openings, we currently have two.

I've contacted Kraft, Sycamore Ken, Pig Nash & IndyToad

Kraft & Ken are former members of the league that I would like to get back. Kraft has yet to get back to me, Ken has too much going on with other leagues.

Pig Nash was the champion of another league on Sports.ws last season but, as with Ken, will not have the time to play this season.

Indy Toad was very active on the "practice site" we set up last fall but didn't make the final cut to get into the league.

If anyone has any suggestions for an opening please let us know.

Thanks

Mourning

Well, I might have a stronger desire if I was better at fantasy basketball, but the biggest thing is that I'm just not going to have the time this season. Between the promotion, the baby, and graduate school, I just don't see it happening.

Thanks for the invite, though.

09-11-2006, 09:44 PM
I'm sorry to keep everyone waiting, but this year I'm only going to have the time to focus on the Keeper League this year. I am giving up my spot. I'm sure someone will make excellent use of it.

Thanks for the oppertunity, Jose.

Thanks for the oppertunity, Jose.

Unfortunately, almost the same thing applies to me. I just don't think I have the time right now to be a good owner in both leagues. So, I'm going to have to stick with the keeper league right now

Sorry, James, maybe things will ease up for me next year.

Well,

You know how much I love playing this game. I was always one of the top 5 active owners.

I'd like to come back, but times change. My new job is getting more complicated, my kids are 13, 10, and 7 and all have afterschool stuff now and I've committed to things like Cub Scout events, my wife has a new full-time job.

I just can't see how I would do a half-decent job without letting something more important (kids, wife, job) suffer.

James, I'm going to take a year off.

:sad:

I will try to decide in the next few days whether I can stay in the keeper league. I won't drag it out too long. If somebody has to take over my team, they are at least getting something decent.

Sorry about this. I just can't find enough hours in the day.

:shrug:

Jose Slaughter

I totally understand. I'm surprised we kept the majority of the league together as long as we did.

We had an outstanding group for about 4 years.

The new guys will have big shoes to fill.

Lord, 22 teams. This will certainly be the biggest fantasy league I've ever been in. Am I going to have to draft John Edwards?

Actually it'll be 24.

I'm waiting to hear from a couple vets before I bring in a couple more rookies.

Wow...this is almost as big as the real NBA. Hopefully there are a few Isiahs, McHales and Babcocks out there.

Thanks for the invite, yall....Welcoming the challenge.

Ok, COOL! With Since86 joining we have 24! Let's start hearing preferences for the sort of draft we will be doing, how long everyone has to make a pick and about when we will be doing it.

I will leave it to you, James, to state your preferences with regards to these things as you have the most experience at it.

I also would like to remind everyone that this IS a serious fantasy league, so an active owner is not a nice bonus. It's REQUIRED to be active. It's part of the game. So, if you don't think you have the time ... then let us know now, please ;).

Mourning :cool:

The draft will start the first Saturday after Able gets our site open.

The draft clock will be the same as last season.... 24 hours.

I know that seems like a long time but we got the whole draft completed in just 6 days.

bulldog
09-21-2006, 04:10 PM
What sort of scoring will we use? Same as sports.ws? Or categories (you get a point for having the most rebounds, points, assists, etc.)? Weekly? Head-to-head?

Jose Slaughter
09-21-2006, 04:55 PM
Its my understanding that we will have the same set up as Sports.ws.

The scoring will be ....

OR = 2
DR = 1.5
Steals =2
Assist = 2
Blocks = 2.5
Points = 1

Turnovers = -1.5
Techs = -1
Personal Fouls = -.5
