Official GWJFFL 2009 Interest and Setup Thread
I really need to archive my introduction. I keep updating the original post and lose what was certainly a witty and useful summary. Oh well, not this year.
As promised, training camps have started and so, too, does the GWJFFL.
Last year's preseason thread[/url]]----------
The GWJFFL is the official Fantasy Football League of Gamers With Jobs. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis, with priority given to returning owners. Teams who sign up after all positions are filled will be added to an alternate list to be contacted should a slot become available. The waiting list carries over from year to year so signing up as an alternate for this season reserves your position until you forfeit it.
Significant highlights include:Roster Requirements: Maximum of 20 players.
Starting lineups will consist of
1 Flex player (a RB or WR, or TE)
1 Team Defense/Special team
Point Calculations: Team scoring will be carried out to the hundredth (e.g. a team may score
Free Agent Acquisitions/Blind Bidding: The free agent system will be a “blind bidding” process. Each team will start with $1,000 free agent “dollars” for the season, and will be permitted to bid for free agents on a weekly basis. No team will be informed of any other team’s free agent bids until after the winning bids have been awarded. A team owner will no longer be able to bid on free agents once their season long waiver wire cap of $1,000 has been reached.
For detailed scoring information and additional information regarding the free agent acquisition process (including examples), refer to the rules document.
Returning veterans (only last year counts) that post by 23:59 next Monday, 8/10, will be guaranteed a spot. (Important Note: If you got left on the waiting list last year, you will be treated as a veteran for the purpose of re-claiming your spot at the top of the waiting list, but you still need to check in.) Beginning 8/11, all sign-ups are first come, first serve. Expansion teams should still post ASAP because you'll be added to the waiting list in the order you post to fill what slots remain once the veterans have had their head-start. The number of leagues will be based on interest; the target is two but I can probably be convinced to run three leagues. Registration will close at 23:59 on Thursday, 8/20, or when we have 33 interested parties.
* 8/01 to 8/10 - Preferred registration
* 8/11 to 8/20 - Open registration
