Re: NFBC Main Event Format For 60-Game Season

Strong preference for the $1200-$100K option. Keep it as a six-figure champion in every year of the contest.

Re: OFFICIAL NFBC STATEMENT ON 60-GAME SEASON

Good job by all involved.

I especially liked that you included the number of FAAB weeks remaining in your decision-making process. I don't believe many people considered that aspect of what we've lost so far.

You can't have NFBC message boards without conspiracy theories. That would be like lemonade without water.

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

FYI -cancelled online MLB.TV package today. In spite of what I've seen posted online, refunded with no pushback from customer service and took about 2 minutes. I'll buy back in at 100% prorated. Maybe. I just did the same. Extraordinarily annoyed at MLB and the only thing I know to do is to vote wi...

Re: NFBC Side Challenge Games Will Be Available In 2020

Great news, Greg! Finally people are about to put their Money where Their Mouth is.

One important question: are funds for side pot challenges collected up front? I wouldn’t want anyone to disappear into the night :lol:

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

Also, I know you don’t want to get into hypotheticals, but I think people who’ve already dropped (a good deal of) money on leagues would be reassured to know that there’s a minimum number of MLB games required for leagues to stand. And that that number is something a lot higher than 1. Beyond reass...

Thanks to Greg, Tom and Darik. I know this has to have been an incredible ordeal for you guys. In the end, this was the only decision that made sense. I wouldn’t rule out a mini-NFBC weekend in Vegas (or Iola :lol: ) once all of the craziness is behind us. Maybe you won’t get 200 people, but I could...

Re: MLB Season Postponed?

It's harder for baseball. Arms have to be stretched. Timing has to be down before players can play. Before May 1 or whatever the postponement date, where would players do this? A mini-spring training again? Tough nut. Yes, there would need to be an abridged spring training (much like the lockout ye...

MLB Season Postponed (edit: official)

With tonight’s announcement that the NBA season has been suspended, it seems very likely that MLB will follow suit. I want to address a very specific situation. If drafts occur this weekend (New York, Chicago and Online), and MLB postpones their season on Monday, are we going forward with drafts in ...

Re: 163rd Game Play-In Final Survey Results

I'd always been against the other variants of the pitcher swap because it gave an advantage to those who could check back on Wednesday and Thursday to make changes. I do like this version better but the one part I don't like is that if you put in a reliever and he doesn't pitch by Friday then it's ...
