Where Did The 2009 NFBC League Champs Draft From?

Suggestions For 2010 Player Eligibility Rules

Originally posted by Plymouth: I guess I am wondering why if a player is determined to be 2B or SS eligible why he is not MI eligible, do they not go together like hand and glove? Obviously the same for 1B/3B and CI. Or am I misunderstanding? suppose during the 2010 season, a non-CI elgibile player ...

Suggestions For 2010 Player Eligibility Rules

Four things… The last sentence of ‘A’ is the same as ‘F’. You may want to remove one of them as it’s a duplicate and just clutters the rule up more than it should be. If I’m reading the rules correctly, a player who played 1 game at 2B, 1 game at SS and 1 game at OF would be eligible at all three po...

This weekend

Billywaz, myself and a couple other NFBC/NFFC'ers are getting together in the Baltimore/DC area this weekend. Should be an interesting time to say the least. If you are going to be in the Balt area Saturday night and want to head out for a drink or two, shoot me a PM. Beer Pong tournaments are on ta...

Looking For Feedback On NFBC 2009

Some ‘positive’ feedback 1. Even with a couple warts, the NFBC is the best high stakes fantasy baseball event in the country 2. Customer service is the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of interacting with 3. DL rule has been a life saver. There’s nothing good about having a player go down with injury...

Mark, As I told you before, I respect you as a player but you have a very thin skin for a guy with the persona you portray on these message boards. 3. Keep quiet and go with the flow because it’s part of the game.

Greg – I quoted respected NFBC participants. Perhaps this issue (if you even think it is one) is more prevalent than you were aware? And I don’t care where I am in the standings. This issue is here and will undoubtedly rear its ugly head again. Unfortunately, maybe even with me again. If this happen...

Feedback for 2009? Well I could go into the great aspects of the contest and how great the competition is (and I will be in the coming weeks), but this last week has left me with a black eye and puts this competition in a whole new light. What has happened the last week of the season in the $1,300 N...

Slo- Drafts and New Rules

I believe a competing company plans to re-enter the high stakes fantasy baseball arena in 2010. Their rules dictate setting your lineup twice a week (Monday-Thursday) and (Friday-Sunday). Someone over there must think that’s what high stakes players are looking for. I don’t see myself playing over t...

Bill – You are free to post whatever you feel. And I wouldn’t want it any other way, even if I disagree with what you are saying. I guess what I’m saying is that I’m disappointed.
