Interest thread: GWJFL Next

Hah. Sucking the worst finally works to my advantage!

Except that I have no idea what to do with a first pick in the draft, no matter which team I end up picking.

Anybody want to help a brother out when we get to that? I'm clueless. How does it even work?

Maybe this isn't the time for this.

I'm in the same boat... what exactly are we drafting for? Teams? I figured the players would already be assigned already based on the rosters at the beginning of the season.

Sorry for the confusion. I forget that some of you took over teams mid-season and weren't involved in the initial process. Yes, draft order == team pick order.* So Thin_J/Cabbot gets his choice of any team in the league.

Additionally, it's been privately proposed to me that the two teams who make the Superbowl not be allowed to select the same team they used last season. I guess this would actually refer to the last two seasons/leagues since they ran parallel and the draft order is based on both. Personally, I think this sounds like a decent idea but I don't feel compelled to implement it unless everyone else thinks so, too.

*Though it's too bad that the game doesn't support an online version of the fantasy draft that is found in the offline mode.

Edit: I wonder if, with the creative use of trading, you could actually pull this off. Hmm, I think so, but what a major PITA that would be. Then again, if you've ever drafted for traditional fantasy football, they're all a PITA (though this - even properly implemented, not the hack I suggested - would be even bigger with many more players per team).

That helps a bunch. Perhaps it's time to do some "research" disguised as having fun playing football and seeing which team I like the best

I'm in. With the news that Take 2 will NOT be producing any kind of Football game this year I want to get my games in the ESPN football series while it's still relevant!

I'm in for another league

Hey I'm in for another Football league

I move to approve a vote that the next GWJFL league is called GWJFL 360.

I move that we pay logan $50 to kick his brother in the nads.

How about GWJFL Revolution?

Then we won't tell people what the Revolution is all season, and when the season's over, we'll tell them that the Revolution is that *Legion* was naked every game, and still won.

Green drops back, he looks right... he looks left... he throws to Pollard on the corner route - it's PICKED OFF by Deon Grant, who was controlled by *Legion* the whole time! Grant's across the 30... he's dragged down by Priest Holmes! Oh man, I bet Green wishes he had THAT one back.

Logan would take your $50 and run. If he kicked me, he knows I would end him, and take the $50 for myself.

Well we better get that done BEFORE we start playing leagues in games that use the Xbox 360 and its camera!

OK $100 then.

Yes, Yes, Green went to the corner from that set once too often. It's bad enough I see it in my sleep. Now I have to read an announcert's running commentary of it!

Oh I would chip in for a kick to Legions nads - oh yes I would.

I'm gonna sit this one out guys. I just can't commit to another 16 week season right now. I'm still up for a little tournament play though if your still doing those Grumpy.

Well the first tourney never got off the ground, Stric, but I'll give it another go once we get this league underway.

Just wanting to let my inner n00bness show.

Draft order is for which team you take. Are these default teams? is there to be a player draft as well? are we allowed to trade players between teams?

I don't understand this question.
is there to be a player draft as well?
No.
are we allowed to trade players between teams?
Yes.

I guess the first question was more of a two parter that included the draft question. We wouldn't be using default teams, players on their origional teams, if there was a draft.

Ill play as long as the league doesnt piddle out in the middle. Its frustrating when folks dont want to play their games. I dont even know why, they'd all beat my ass anyway. Only game I'm any good at is mlb2k5.

squirrelmonkey, what happened to you in the middle of last season? I even sent a PM or two that was never responded to.

Well now that Certis is back from E3 and Legion is done with the semester, the semi-finals of GWJFL 2005 have finally begun to move forward... and so it's time to revive this thread. Here's the list thus far:

1 Grumpicus
2 baggachipz
3 Highlander
4 Warlock
5 LockAndLoad
6 Thin_J
7 NeoCell
8 SpyNavy
9 ruthlessmuffin
10 Redhwk
11 firesloth
12 Legion

13 SwampYankee
14 Certis
15 frankiemumbles
16 ?squirrelmonkey?

As you can see, squirrelmonkey is number 16 but, he did appear to go AWOL towards the end of the last league. I'm a big fan of second chances and so, assuming he has a decent explanation, I am willing to have him join us as long as he (along with everyone else, please, Please, PLEASE - see you made me beg) commits to rule #1 - don't flake out and don't wait until the last day to schedule/play your games because you never know if/when you'll run into technical difficulties and need a reset.

Of course, if your name is listed above and, for whatever reason, you have changed your mind, please let me know ASAP. Registration remains open through the end of the week.

So did anything ever become of this?

Dude. He just posted that last post 3 days ago. Patience.

Sign-up officially ends tomorrow night once I finish my game with NeoCell. At that point, we'll know which two teams are in the SuperBowl and therefore, the last two teams to pick. Right now, given the lack of response/explanation from SquirrelMonkey, we are at 15 teams...

If you need to cut teams to get down to 12, I'll be one of them.

If we're only short one player, maybe we could get someone not playing to take a team just to get 16 and consider it a Bye when you face them.

The pocket's collapsing and I need a dump-off receiver. Who wants the ball?

Alright folks, I need someone to take over the active management of GWJFL Next (360? You decide). My wife is 5 months pregnant and my free time is beginning to significantly decrease. I will be able and happy to support you in every way necessary including calculating the draft order but someone else is going to have to set up the league in 2k5 and manage the schedule and trades and such. Please PM me if you're interested and I'll discuss what it would entail.

Thanks.

A baby Grumpicus! Congrats!

Swampy for commish!

And congrats Grumpy, way to procreate!
