Re: Week 2 FAAB

Ah, our Monday morning tradition is back. Nothing like having a fresh cup of coffee and reviewing all of the bids. 8-)

Of course, some of these bids have me spitting out my coffee! :lol:

Re: SOLD OUT: 2021 NFBC Main Event Record 645 Teams

Incredible! Among these 645 teams, there are 399 unique owners. Any idea if 399 is a record as well?

Another record: putting up a SOLD OUT sign five days before Opening Day. Sleep well, guys.

Re: New York Live Event Plan March 19-20

Are there plans for any kind of get-togethers in New York that weekend? I have heard rumors of a gathering in Tribeca on Friday night, but I have yet to receive an official invite. Please keep me posted should anything develop.

Re: Three Wise Men Interview (Lindy, Jupinka, Potts)

Great job, Vlad. Between this article and last week’s podcast that Rob P, Mark and Matt produced, there’s a TON of useful information being revealed by some of the best players out there.

Anyone and everyone — regardless of experience — would be “wise” to listen.

allow Ps who have not pitched, for whatever reason, M-Th to be substituted for & not be locked until they enter a game.
I've been asking for this for more than 10 years. It's the all-encompassing solution to our problems.

Re: Innings Minimum

Why 2022? 1. Legality of changing rules. Roughly 300 signups for the Main Event thus far, and most of the $2500+ contests are full or almost full. 2. Preparations and planning have been made based on the innings pitched that are in the rules. Believe it or not, this would be a significant change. 3...

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.

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...

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...
