a 40 round roto league where all your players count every week
Thanks for the shout out.
And congrats on another good year. You are a damned good player.

Thanks, appreciate it.

I didn't remember who had the idea but I knew I read it somewhere on the boards last year and loved it.

Re: Looking For Feedback On 2021 Cutline Championship

I've never played the cutline format because of the 2 FAAB periods. I know it's only two but it's still something to worry about. I've said for awhile that the NFBC needs a true best ball format whether it's a 50 round points league where your 23 best guys count every week or a 40 round roto league ...

Re: Processing the News

I just hope we can get through this week and things start to calm down. We're getting all the test results at the same time so it probably looks worse than it is. At this point, the opt outs are what really scares me for the season because I think (or hope?) the news about positive tests will slow d...

Minor leaguers and FAAB?

I don't know if this was adressed but will the players on the 60 man taxi squad but not included on the opening day 30-man rosters be treated as minor leaguers have been in past years? Not eligible for FAAB until they're added to the active roster unless they were drafted and then dropped?

Re: Can We Combine Zoomcasts With NFBC Main Events?

I have 6 or 7 people interested so far, the Saturday or Sunday night on that first week-end seem to be the most popular. If anyone else is interested, let me know if you have a preference between those 2 dates.

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

To be fair, National League teams are like us. When building their teams early in the season, they had no clue we'd be playing with a DH. In that way, we're truly all in the same boat. :D By the same token, it may help NL pitchers in other ways. They will not be pulled for a pinch hitter when throw...

And, with all due respect, if Trout or Snell or any other top of the line guys choose not to play, so what? We're in a different world for this season, and we need to adapt accordingly. Adjust your lineups. Use the FAAB. We all agree that no draft is won in the first round. Otherwise it's not a gam...

Re: NFBC Main Event Format For 60-Game Season

Yeah keep it 6 figures, I'll get 4 teams as well at $1200. I think you can bring the number of teams down to 480 to limit your risk a little, still offer the 100k grand prize. Less money for people who finish in the top 10 overall but you can just add to that if you fill more leagues.

I do however agree with you that the $1000k DC leagues should be cancelled but I'm fine rolling with my team either way,...

I signed up for 2 $1000 DC's knowing that over a 162 games season I have an edge over my competitors. For a 60 games season that edge is cut in more than half.

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

The owners have to get the players' approval for expanded playoffs and that's probably worth 500 million over the next 2 years. So if they want that they have to get the players to sign on it. They should have made that offer a month ago but I don't think they're ready to give up that money. I gues...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

Great move from the union. This might actually give us a 70 games season. I could completely be in left field here but let see. If MLB wants to start the season mid July. There is 11 weeks up to Sept 27. If they wish to play let say 55 games, that would be 5 games a week. How can MLB at this point ...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

One big problem we are forgetting is owners will want players to take a significant pay cut due to lost revenue from gate,concessions, parking and 1/2 a season of Lost TV. This could be a deal breaker for both players and owners. It's either that or they don't get paid at all... The virus won't mag...

It is completely unrealistic to expect NFBC to cancel the hundreds of drafts that have been completed and refund our money.
