To repeat an earlier post if this was a "normal schedule" I'd be in on a NYC ultimate auction but I will be in Vegas both weekends next year.

Re: Win $50,000 In The Debut NFBC Cutline Championship

If I have an OF/SS who happens to be the 3rd highest OF points will the optimal scoring program know to use him as a SS when all of my OF's scoring is > than my other SS ? How is added position eligibility going to work? If a player becomes SS eligible on Saturday will he be part of the SS optimal ...

Re: NFBC All-Time Career Money Leaders

The percent of times you're in the top 3 in your league would be a good indicator. The amount of money on the line is separate.

Re: Looking For Feedback On Ultimate & Diamond Prizes

To keep it simple, for any contests that pay the top three (whether a main event, ultimate, super, etc.) why not keep the percentage the same at 1st/2nd/3rd?

Also, I'm in favor of top 4 for the diamond auction.

Re: Tentative Schedule Of Events For 2015 NFBC

Assuming schedules go back to "normal" in 2016, I'd be in for an ultimate auction in NYC at that point. I'm out of anything in NYC next year. Put me down for the Diamond Auction.

Re: Bob Particelli Is 2014 NFBC Auction Championship Winner

A painful loss for me. Was leading the auction championship from June until the last two weeks of September. My offense completely fell apart the last month. Congrants Bob and be on the lookout for me next year! Overall a decent first year for me in the NFBC.

Re: Premature Draft

I thought that may have been who you were talking about. :D I'll bet Altuve could have been on the minds of some drafters. I can only speak for myself. Altuve had a splendid year this year, but we're drafting for next year. Let's say that he does repeat his numbers from this year, next year. Battin...

So the guy who did better than all these guys this year doesn't even stiff the first round? Interesting. You would have to define 'did better than'....... Although slightly flawed, the player rater is a pretty accurate indicator. Unlike Chris Davis, Jose Altuve has had quite consistent output in hi...

Re: Tie-Breaker MLB Games After Sunday

I don't like this rule. I agree that this is how you have always handled it. Agree that MLB considers it part of the regular season. Just doesn't feel right to have leagues potentially decided on a 163rd game that only a small percentage of the player pool will be involved in. Obviously a few owner...

Re: 2015 Draft Dates

I will already be in Vegas the "second weekend" (i.e. April 3-5) so I hope Tom/Greg gather input from a number of regular participants (via Survey Monkey possibly?) before making any decisions on dates. I'd like to participate in the one of the Ultimate Auction leagues so maybe splitting them out (i...

Re: What Technical Improvements Would You Like To See?

Three issues I can think of, one which was mentioned earlier in this thread but not addressed: 1. Cumulative stats. For both the overall and league scoring, knowing how I did only in week 5 does not provide me with a lot of information. But seeing how I'm doing on weekly basis cumulatively gives me ...

Re: Why is fantasy baseball sports legal and gambling not?

The difference is that in gambling, if you exclude the vig the odds of winning and losing are identical, similar to a roulette wheel with no 0 or 00. In fantasy sports (or poker, as an other example) that is not the case. This is where skill comes into play and is distinct from pure luck. You can pu...
