    Default Rules for PD KL 2

    PD KL 2 RULES

    NOTE: Unless specifically addressed, all other Gametime rules (waiver
    pickups, trade deadline, etc.) will apply.

    League Rules & Procedures:

    OWNERS:

    Team owners are required to log onto the site on a daily basis. There are times when life will call us away from being able to check in. If an owner knows in advance that he will not be able to check in, he should post a notice, either on the Sports.ws site or on the Pacers Digest Trash Talk board. Team owners that repeatedly fail to log onto the site daily or post a notice of their absence will be in risk of being replaced.

    ROSTERS:

    Teams will retain 9 players from their current year's roster, to carry
    over to the following season. A team may protect an additional player
    however for each additional player, the team will give up a draft pick,
    beginning with its 1st roundd pick. A team keeping 10 players will forfeit
    its 1st roundd pick, a team keeping 11 will forfeit its first 2 rounds and
    a team keeping all 12 will forfeit its first 3 round draft picks. In
    order to retain an additional player a team must have its original draft
    pick - it can't swap a draft pick acquired in a trade to keep an
    additional player.

    Carryover rosters will be determined by the team's lineup for their
    final regular season game.

    If a team receives an additional draft pick in a trade, that draft pick
    will be considered one of the team's protected players for the
    purposes of the draft - for each team the sum of draft picks and protected
    players must equal 12.

    Playoff teams will be allowed to adjust their rosters without penalty -
    however any roster changes made during the playoffs will not be
    eligible to be included in the following year's protected list.

    Players who have announced their retirement after the current year and
    are dropped by teams eliminated from playoff contention are ineligible
    for pickup off waivers. These players are, however, eligible to be
    traded.

    TRADES:

    Offseason trade activity will begin August 1 and conclude when owners
    submit their protected list to the commissioner. Until the site opens,
    trades will be validated through three steps:
    1) One of the participating owners sends the trade to the commissioner
    via e-mail
    2) The other participating owner sends a confirmation e-mail to the
    commissioner and
    3) The Commissioner replies to both owners confirming the trade.

    Once the site opens, trades will be announced through a Trade thread on
    the trash talk page.

    Owners should provide the commissioner with an e-mail address which
    will allow them to receive attachments as the protected list will likely
    be sent via spreadsheet with players in alphabetical order. This does
    NOT need to be shared with anyone else, or the e-mail used in your
    profile on the site.

    DRAFT:

    Draft Order will be determined in the following manner:

    1) Regular season W-L record

    2) Regular Season average team score

    3) W-L record in close games (give the guy with the
    most heartbreakers the previous year some sort of consolation)

    4) Beyond that, we'll think of something - maybe an e-mail rock, paper,
    scissors (don't laugh - it works!)

    This draft order will be maintained for each round of the draft - if
    you select 5th in the 1st round you'll select 5th in each successive rd.

    Teams will be sent a list of "protected players" - players ineligible
    to be drafted because they're already on a team - via e-mail at least
    two days prior to the start of the draft.

    Each team will have 15 minutes to make their selection - with just
    three rounds we should be able to complete this draft within 2-3 hours.

    Owners unable to participate in the draft live may submit a preference
    list to the commissioner. The length of that list is up to the owner's
    judgement but the longer the better.

    Owners not present at the draft will not be given the full 15 minutes
    for their pick but will be skipped - IOW, if you're not logged onto the
    site, we won't wait 15 minutes to skip you.

    In order to prevent delays, teams that did not participate in the draft
    (made no picks) will have players not selected by other owners
    inserted into their roster at the end of the draft.

    TEAMS:

    Due to Gametime site rules there must be an even number of teams. If an
    owner drops out we will try to find a new owner to take over that
    team, rather than throwing the players into a pool to be drafted.

    This will simulate the NBA where you generally buy a team. We will try
    very hard to have no 'bots but there are no guarantees. Keep in mind
    that right now dual ownership of teams is allowed - even if we start with
    a 'bot we may be able to plug a real person in there later.

    If we decide to expand by adding a new team, the new team will be able
    to select their 9 players, as they wish, from unprotected players, with
    the exception of newly drafted rookies. They will then proceed to the
    regular draft, selecting 1st (in essence, they can select 10 players
    before anyone else picks). Beginning with this first pick in the regular
    draft rookies are eligible for selection. This is VERY open to
    discussion but I doubt they'll get a huge advantage since they'll be mainly
    taking players nobody really wants.

    If there are two or more new teams an expansion draft will be held.
    This expansion draft will be held on a thread on the league's Trash Talk
    Board. Draft order for the Expansion Draft will be determined by an
    e-mail "rock, paper, scissors." That order will be reversed in the regular
    draft (the team selecting 1st in Expansion will select 2nd in the
    regular draft). For Expansion teams ONLY, draft order will be rotated (the
    team picking 1st among expansion teams in the 1st rd will pick last
    among expansion teams in the 2nd rd).

    Expansion Teams will not be considered to be an official "team" until
    after the expansion draft. IOW, no trading of draft picks until that
    time.

    Teams will be able to protect 8 players from the Expansion Draft and no
    more than one player may be selected from any single team.

    SCORING SYSTEM:

    Points = 1
    Offensive Rebounds = 2
    Defensive Rebounds = 1.5
    Assists = 2
    Steals = 2
    Blocks = 2.5
    Turnovers = -1.5
    Personal Fouls = -.5
    Technical Fouls = -1

    This is the same system currently in use in the ABA Fantasy league -
    and seems to be generally accepted. However we can discuss this as long
    as it's finalized prior to the first date for submission of Protected
    Lists.

    A couple things.

    1. We have to get a better name for this league! Any suggestions?

    2. The rules posted above are copied from the ABA Keeper League, thank you commissioner Displaced Knick. These rules have worked out very well for us over the years & if you have any questions I'm sure there will be a lot of team owners on here that can help you out.

    Thanks

    Actually our first draft will be 12 rounds, just like any fantasy league.

    The order for the first draft will be determined by the computer on the Sports.ws site.

    Round 1 is random - round 2 is the reverse of round 1.

    Round 3 is random - round 4 is the reverse of round 3.

    .... and so on & so on.

    Each odd numbered round is random & the round directly after it is in reverse order.

    The draft the following year will be just 3 rounds with the order determined by winning percentage.

    I just thought about this one. It isn't a written rule, but it should be.

    Daily participation is required

    I'll bring this up again in just about every post, e-mail & PM I send out, so be prepared.

    The reason dates back to our first season. We had some owners that didn't check in daily to manage their team. They missed out on waiver wire pick ups, players from the free agent pool, trade offers & adjusting their lineups to cover injured or slumping players. Needless to say their teams suffered & they lost interest & bailed on their team as well as the league.

    An owner that fails to check in everyday hurts the league more than their team.

    These type owners will be replaced.

    As a matter of fact, I am going to add this to the offical rules.

    EDIT: This is now part of the rules section, posted above.

    OWNERS:

    Team owners are required to log onto the site on a daily basis. There are times when life will call us away from being able to check in. If an owner knows in advance that he will not be able to check in, he should post a notice, either on the Sports.ws site or on the Pacers Digest Trash Talk board.

    When is the draft? Maybe that's a dumb Q.

    The plan is based on when the site opens.

    1. Site opens

    2. All teams signs up

    3. Commish's expanded powers vote passes

    4. Draft begins

    After the site opens it all depends on how long it takes everyone to sign up. The vote to expand the commish powers will take 24 hours. After that I'd like to start the draft within about a day, 2 at the most.

    That is so funny.

    I was talking to my boss about naming our league today, he didn't come up with anything but I had almost the same thought as Jay.

    Mine was The International League of Extraordinary Gentleman

    Is that because I'm only ordinary or because I'm not a gentleman, because neither one of those things is ****ing true.

    We still have 5 members of our league who have not viewed this thread.

    Once the site opens, I'll send out the league number & password to those that have read the rules.

    The rest of the guys will get another PM that will require them to read this thread before I will give them the info. I don't want guys signing up to play that don't have an understanding of what is required of them.

    Thanks

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    You won't have a problem with the draft.

    We'll have a 24 hour draft clock. With the contingency list & the extended draft clock you shouldn't have any trouble making your picks.

    No with a 24 hour draft I will be fine. I will check minimum twice per day but more like 15 and I will try to set contigency but I am not a big fan of it.
