Post by StegRock on Aug 4th, 2003, 8:34pm
Fellas,

The "2003 Draft" page is up and available via our "Transactions" page, which has been updated as has the "Rosters" page.  ENJOY! [smiley=lickinmychops.gif]

Your Commish... and YOUR CHAMPION,
Steve Steg [smiley=smileytrash.gif]

Fellas, the 2004 "Rosters" and "Transactions" pages are up and all according updates have been made.  Enjoy! [smiley=lickinmychops.gif]

As this is the case, Joe, if you want to contact me regarding the nebulousness of the movement of "late" picks in trades, soon would be the time.  If you could send me a hard copy of something by e-mail, as I have suggested before, that would be most helpful.  Actually, you could make a post regarding it all right here and maybe others can respond and help elucidate the situation(s).  I know you have told me about some stickiness regarding Steve's late picks.  Steve actually had discussed "a situation" with me.  It, I believe, has been solved.  You will notice on the "2003 Transactions" page next to picks moved in a trade between Steve and DT in parenthesis "TBA" (To Be Announced).  Ultimately, he acquired the 5th Round pick to give to Dave later in the season.  Anyway, let's hammer things out!

In any event, we are going to have to make a practice of being more explicit with our moving late-round picks in trades.

...

Now, on to the "League Fee" for 2004...  It is going to (have to) be upped, bottom line.  It was $25 way back when for a number of years through 1998.  It cost me (and Rob at the time for a couple years there) money to run the league.  In 1999, with the launching of the GBRFL web site, I bumped it to $40, a more reasonable fee in light of expenses.  I actually could pocket a few bucks there for a couple years.  But, since then, I've stepped it up.  Over the last three years, the plaques, as you guys know, have undergone major and appropriate upgrades (before there used to be virtually no difference between the size and look of a Championship plaque and a 3rd Place plaque); we have even added a plaque, "GM/Coach of the Year"; I have given out T-shirts; etc.  All the while, the league fee has stayed the same and any pocket cash I was able to garner has disappeared (and become more "red" for me).

Also, there has to be consideration for me as a person essentially volunteering his efforts to put forth a nice "product", loosely speaking.  Between 1998, when I started to take back over administration of the league, and 2003, I have been either living and working in Korea where I had very flexible schedules or in New Jersey during these flexible, "transition" periods, and running the league was not too much sweat off my back.  THAT is about to change.  Heading to grad school this August, my time will be MUCH more limited starting this upcoming season.  My time will become more "valuable" (to me), so to speak.

Given all this, I think a league fee of $50 is more proper to the situation.  I am considering gradually moving it that way, to $45 for '04 and then $50 for '05.  I don't know, but it will be upped.  If this is something to which you are not amenable, please let me, us know a.s.a.p., so we can go about finding a replacement for you.  Bottom line, I guess what I am saying is "that is my price". [smiley=shrug.gif] Thank you for your anticipatively understanding! [smiley=bow.gif]

Guys, by the way, I have decided to just go with $50 starting this year.  So, that's that for that.  If, for some reason, that's too steep for you, please let me/us know a.s.a.p. so we can go about getting a replacement.  I don't foresee its being a problem for any of you, though. :)

Remember the increase in the league fee, fellas.  It is NOW $50.  Steve has already paid by credit card.  Thanks, Steve! [smiley=bow.gif]

Fellas, the "2004 Draft" page is up, available via the "Transactions" page (click the "Draft" button), which has been updated along with the "Rosters" page.  Visit the site and check it all out.

Also, for those who haven't paid, the $50 league fee is due by Week 4.

Fellas, especially those of you who were experiencing difficulties opening the GBRFL or GBRFL2 league home pages (i.e., they were taking a looooong time to open or not all the applets were downloading), you should now find the league home/index pages MUCH faster to open and error-free.  I realized yesterday evening that something was in fact going very awry with those pages; (with time I don't have) I figured it out and took the time (out of everything else) to fix it (because of, frankly speaking, all the very severe implications of what was going on that could have been detrimental to the stability of the whole domain, actually all of my domains).  I hope ALL you guys now enjoy navigating to the league home pages (and no longer have to go around them (if you still experience problems, it is on your end, for sure, now, i.e. connection speed, computer speed, browser settings, etc., etc.)).  Anyway,...

Guys, I am going to turnover the system over at the league site now so you can submit your lineups for Week 6.  However, the Week 5 results will NOT be posted yet.  I have a paper due tomorrow.  It's a short one and I am over halfway done with the writing, so it shouldn't be much longer.  If I get it done by a reasonable time tonight, like say 1:00 a.m., which I think, no pray, will happen, I may come back over to the computer lab here and run the stats and post Week 5's results.  I am heading up to Jersey tomorrow afternoon for the weekend, so if Week 5's stuff is not up tonight it won't be until tomorrow night late or even Saturday.  Thanks for your anticipated understanding, patience and according cooperation.

Guys, I've been workin' it... [smiley=steg.gif] ... :P I have made a behind-the-scenes upgrade to the lineup submissions section of the league site.  It affects how you go about viewing another's lineup when the system has been set for viewing all lineups and disabling lineup submissions (this has already been done for this week).  You will now have to make the extra steps of inputting your permissions every time you want to see someone else's lineup.  It is a small hassle, but one WELL worth it.  None of you probably noticed or would even be looking for ways to cheat, BUT if you were savy enough and looked hard enough, there has been a way to cheat, though not in a very big way, ALL ALONG.  I myself with all the work I do on and all the knowledge I have of this stuff just found this hole this season (I saw it about 10 weeks ago).  I am always looking for ways to upgrade things.  This probably didn't matter for our current, small-scale purposes.  But, I am always working on things with an eye toward the future.  There is a chance I may run pay GBRFL-style leagues someday, and any baby steps that can be proactively made beforehand only help in the long-run. [smiley=yes.gif] Anyway, enjoy the NEW uncrackable, cheater-combatting system, boyz! [smiley=bow.gif]

THanks for taking the time to make the site better.  All the effort you put in behind the scenes is appreciated, especially given your busy circumstances and computer availability.

 I do have one minor request.  After viewing the line ups of other players, if you hit the 'back' button, it takes you to the password page.  Can you have that take you back to the page that allows you to choose another players line up?

Thanks again!

You're welcome, brother!

As for your request, Steve, no, unfortunately, I cannot.  That's actually part of the key to solving the problem/plugging the hole I was referring to.  Sorry, bro.

Post by StegRock on Jun 12th, 2005, 8:07pm
Fellas, [smiley=steg.gif] the "Rosters" and "Transactions" pages over at the GBRFL web site have been updated.

There is BIG news connected to this...  There were two mistakes made by dudes making trades... :P They both occurred in Week 12 and involved Dave Trout (sorry, bro :-[).  In the worse of the two instances, DT traded a 4th round pick to Dave Bohrer.  Problem... he did NOT have a 4th round pick to trade.  UH-OH!!!  He had already traded it earlier in the season.  This is a pretty big error.  Bottom line, though, as commissioner, the way I look at it, if you give your figurative hand shake on and consummate a deal without being absolutely certain that you're getting what you expect, that's on you and you're leaving it in the hands of the commissioner to do the best he can to rectify a ready-made mess after the fact.  There is just no way for it to be expeditiously dealt with democratically, for us to expect the two parties to be able to disabuse the situation with absolute fairness and objectivity and in a timely manner (letting only the parties involved renegotiate such deals ex post facto really opens the door to all kinds of potential "ugliness") or for the parties involved to expect the rest of the league to think it fair for them alone to fix it as such situations affect the whole league, not just the teams involved, and the trade cannot be simply voided.  Unfortunately we cannot roll back the clock and go back and undo it.  There is knowledge now that should NOT have existed then that would have an inappropriate ripple effect on any renegotiations or democratic debates.  The best and most equitable thing that can be done is to call on the commissioner to mirror the deal that was made as best as possible.  That is what I did.  The other mistake is a much smaller deal.  Joe Parsons, in the courtesy part of a trade where you give your current last pick to the dude you are trading with as a courtesy for an uneven trade with respect to picks, gave Dave Trout a 9th round pick he did not have.  I just adjusted the trade to Joe's actual last pick.  As such, Dave got a teeny, tiny bump up.  In any event, you can check the 2004 "Transactions" page to see exactly how I went about fixing these trades.

Also, using Joe Parsons's draft-pick spreadsheet, I went ahead and figured out how the draft picks are distributed based on trades made.  It works out perfectly. :) Everybody's got the right number of picks based on their number of protection spots.  I have made this spreadsheet available on-line at:

http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/gbrfl/GBRFL2005draftpicksgrid.xls.

Over and out! [smiley=wave.gif]

As a general rule, I don't agree with that buyer beware philosophy.  You should know what you have when you offer a deal, otherwise you invite"shark" practices of offering something you don't have knowing the taker will suffer.  Of course, in a perfect world everyone will check, but we know many deals (like the one in question) are done at the 11th hour (as I was walking the dog as I recall).  So, I think the benefit should go to the person getting the pick that doesn't exist.

But in this case Trout doesn't even have a 3rd round pick and I don't believe he has another 4th, so I will "take the 5th."   ;)   ;D

I totally agree.  I was just trying to make a middle-ground presentation.  My main point was that when such cases occur, both parties are leaving it up to the commissioner to make it right.  But, surely the guy who made the mistake should take a (punitive) hit.  You'd have gotten his 3rd if he had one, DB!

Thanks for getting the rosters up and on-line so quickly! Much appreciated.  It is nice to be able to see what everyone has.   I listed all the draft picks, but was not able to keep up with who drafted what.  

In a quick glance it seems that everyone has everyone elses handcuffs...... could be interesting when someone goes down.

Fellas,

Two things...

1) I today updated the "Rules/Scoring" page at the league site to indicate the NEW rules we passed at the Summer Meeting.  They are displayed in RED font so that they stick out.

2) I just a few minutes ago sent you all a VERY IMPORTANT e-mail regarding the league fee.  (Frank, Pak, DB, even though you three already paid, PLEASE do make sure to take a look at what I wrote in the last paragraph.)

Out,

Title: Re: GBRFL Web Site & League Fee
Post by StegRock on Sep 4th, 2005, 11:18pm
Well, boyz, the league site hath finally been updated and is ready to roll into the '05 season!  All pages have been reset, including most importantly, the NEW "Lineup Submission Form", which is now tailored to our NEW system of dual-lineups for weeks when you have bonus games.  It's basically the same, BUT it is different enough for me to HIGHLY recommend your not leaving things to the last minute, especially Week One, which commences ON THURSDAY!!!  You NEED to get accustomed to it beforehand and, ideally, get a preliminary lineup in A.S.A.P.

ALSO, you may have already noticed the NEW league home page.  If not,... IT'S HOT (if I must say so myself)!!! [smiley=awwgee.gif] For one, the page is now much slimmer and trimmer (out with the excessive number of java applets, which slowed the loading of the page down for many of you, and much of the information stuff that can be found nicely consolidated on "the Gridiron Newsstand", which is still linked to on the page).  MOST IMPORTANTLY though, it puts to use "'the Gridiron' Add-on (http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/addit.php)" feature.  This 1) gives me a display page by which to market this FREE add-on and 2) as FantasyFootballer.com matures and evolves it makes the league home page into a portal page, a technique I want to develop as the site beyond the "the Gridiron" forum grows.  The league home page is now located at:

http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/gbrfl/index.php.

NOW,... go get on over to your "Lineup Submission Form" and get acquainted with it and practice... [smiley=onit.gif]

Title: Re: GBRFL Web Site & League Fee
Post by StegRock on Sep 6th, 2005, 2:51pm
Fellas, just a heads up...  Know that a great way to practice with the "lineup submission form" unofficially is by way of the "Guest" lineup submission form.  To do so, just click where it says "Guests Click Here" on the left-hand side on the "Lineups" frames-page:

Just an FYI,... lineups may or may not be exposed ([smiley=dick.jpg]...[smiley=hmmmm.gif]...[smiley=joker.gif]) week in and week out on time, which is not necessarily a newsflash, I know.  There are times when they may not be accessible until Monday, so I suggest that you guys, after kickoff, if this is the case, take the initiative and share your lineups by way of a thread on our board here.  ALSO, and this is a bit of a newsflash as it will probably be standard this year, results probably won't see the light of day this year until WEDNESDAY afternoon/evening (given my heavily front-loaded class schedule on Monday and Tuesday and the fact that I live in Hawaii 3 to 6 hours behind you guys).  The improved spreadsheet will make things much quicker for me this year, but on Sunday night, Monday and Tuesday, I don't have time to sniff my ass, no less take a shower, no less deal with this.  Over and out, Steg.

Fellas, just a heads up...  I have got A LOT on the plate right now at school...  BIG presentation and paper due next Tuesday.  So, Week 10's results are in all likelihood going to get posted VERY late this week, like Saturday perhaps.  I apologize in advance for the inconvenience.  In any event, as such, the lineup submission section is going to be turned over before the results are posted.  So, if you want to be able to double-check your games immediately, you all may want to go about jotting down your opponents' rosters soon.  Thank you all in advance for once again bearing with me...  After next Tuesday, though, I will be freed up quite a bit for the rest of the season. :)

The lineups section has been "turned over" so you can submit your lineups.  This is due to the VERY short fantasy week we have this week because of Thanksgiving. [smiley=turkey.gif] Lineups MUST be in by kickoff of the FIRST game on Thursday.  Week 11 results will be posted as soon as I can get around to it, probably tomorrow afternoon/evening.

Thanks for doing that, Steve. It really makes things easier. But, how you set it up is very cool, especially that you can click and go directly to the rosters. Awesome and thanks for taking the time on that one.

I think you need to head on over to Yahoo! and join a league and make some new internet friends for yourself, Danny (one of my "best" friends from college). :-X I think they even do "live scoring"...  Oh, but, wait a minute...  You surely wouldn't have time for that...  OR, might none of this be about "being busy... busier than anybody else" and rather be about having the attention span of a 2-year-old,...

Guys, it's 5:25 a.m. here...  I am, alas, going to BED... [smiley=sleepers.gif] The game is taped-delayed here, so I'll be "ignoring" things in the afternoon, and, in any event, I have class that goes right through kickoff (and I have work [smiley=RIF.gif] to do for said class that I have to fit somewhere between snoozing, peeing, eating, pinchin' a poo, showering,... AND 1:30).  Point being, this is probably it for me until after kickoff,... in fact, very late tomorrow night you all's time.  So, just to cover all bases here,... if anyone were not to submit a lineup by kickoff, remember that their games are not forfeited.  Their lineup would be determined by going by "seniority" on their roster (i.e., for simpletons, [smiley=dunce.gif] ... [smiley=gimmeabreak.gif] left to right as per the "Rosters (http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/gbrfl/rosters.htm)" page, the first 2 QB's (read left to right), 3 RB's, etc., etc.).  As you guys should be accustomed, the guy listed leftmost at every position is the guy who has been on your team the longest.  In fact, this is how it goes if "cascading" ever goes "beyond" the lineup submitted (as yous should know).  Anyway,... I'm calling it a night... [smiley=yawn.gif] day... [smiley=sunny.gif] ... [smiley=wavinbye.gif] See yous on the other side...

Guys, just wanted to let yous know...  As it turns out, it doesn't look like ESPN will be tape-delaying Monday night games here in Hawaii.  They'll be broadcast live.  Typically, I will be out in class at this time of day on Monday (actually, just getting home around now, missing the first quarter and a half or so).  That class was cancelled today, so I'm home now watching it live.  I haven't decided yet whether or not I'll tape the game and watch it at my leisure, but I'm inclined to think, for time-management purposes, that I'll run home from class on Mondays and just watch it from that point.  So, it looks like calling me [smiley=phone.gif] on Monday nights and rapping with me about the games is going to be okay.

Okay, guys,... update and correction... of sorts...  They are RE-playing the game on ESPN (NO, Markie, it's not what you needed here against me this week,... a do-over game that is ;)).  It's rebroadcast at 7:00 p.m. Hawaii time, and I surely may opt to wait out the later showing in future weeks.  So, just a heads up...  Mondays, yet again, may not be a good time to talk game with me. :-X And, again, please be sensitive to this.  I hate when someone (accidently) divulges something about games I haven't seen but are tape-delayed.  It like defeats the whole purpose. :-/ Anyway, thanks in advance for trying your best to not do that (even by accident). :)

Guys,

Can yous give me some help with Rob Pak?  I have yet to receive his league fee.  That's two weeks in a row.  While he does continue to submit lineups and is allowed to make lineup changes (precluding player transactions), if I weren't to receive his league fee by the kickoff of next week's games, there would be a sense in which he has broken the "3 Strike Rule", which would mean that his continuing in the league would come up for vote by the league at the end of the season.  However, if he can't pick up free-agents all year long, that's pretty beat.  I don't know what's up. ?.?.? I know we had a slight bit of a falling out as of late.  Also, he's been under the weather [smiley=sick.gif] as he told us, and he is caring for a newborn. [smiley=newbie.gif] However, he does continue to submit lineups, moreover, with free-agent requests. [smiley=uh.gif]

He never picks up the phone when I call anymore and responds to nothing from me.  He must have gotten the e-mails I sent out.  So, I'm at a loss. [smiley=idontknow.gif] So, especially those of you who are closish with Rob, can yous try to get on this... him... for me... because this is headed straight for an ugly [smiley=zombie.gif], unwelcomed conclusion???  Thank you in advance.

Alternatively, if you are reading this, Rob, PLEASE take (some sort of) action, man!

The league-fee due date, though, is, ultimately indicated on the "Schedule" page, and, in any event, it has been Week 4 for years now, so... :-/

I have paid the league fee by making a donation to the web site.

Also, most of the guys in the GBRFL are aware of my new email address.  I assumed that you were as well.

I did not know that the league fee was posted anywhere.  In fact, as you well know, I have never been late on the league fee and have always paid you the day of the draft.  I understand that it was impossible this draft because you were in Hawaii, but if you look at my past record, I have always paid on time.  I apologize for my delay in paying, but when you have a lot of crap going on in your life, some things are forgotten.

I'm assuming that I can pick up free agents this week.

NOT EVEN CLOSE.  I will be "in transit" starting from a few hours from now until after the conclusion of the Thursday night game. [smiley=yikes.gif] Based on my itinerary over the next week or so, there is a chance they may not even be up until like Sunday night... or maybe not even until next Wednesday after I've returned to Hawaii. :P I'll probably whip them out on the plane, but will not "reliably" have FTP access so as to upload the files until Sunday night,... and maybe not even then.  So, I am going to need yous to bear with me.  If you haven't noticed, I have already "turned over" the lineups submission area.  So, as of yesterday, actually, you guys could have started submitting your lineups for Week 13.  I apologize for the inconvenience.  It is what it is.  "Work" with me!  Thank you!

P.S. (I don't have time to sniff my ass here, guys... ;) If someone can make sure this message gets disseminated to the rest of our league compadres by e-mail or something, I'd REALLY appreciate it!  ALSO, if someone wants to get some sort of "UNOFFICIAL" results up here on our board in the meantime, GO FOR IT!!!)

Guys, Dave Trout TOTALLY fucked up his lineup submission this week, and regretfully it has ramifications on the championship run as he is in third and plays Mark. :-/ Just to be explicit about this, of course, you do NOT get the best performances of your players providing you merely list all the possibilities as he mentions in the comments section of his lineup card.  How superficial would our extended Week 17 be if that were the case? ::) Why would I even make us list the games individually on our lineup cards if we were just going to get the "best" games our players have, anyway?  The lists would then be rendered totally superfluous, i.e., there would be no reason to list the games.  In any event, I am just going to take it that he wants ALL those games listed taken into consideration, i.e., I will use the farthest games out that each of his players plays in, excluding the Pro Bowl, which he did not list for any of his players.  That's the best ruling I can come up with on the spot given his lineup submission. :-/

Title: Re: GBRFL Web Site, League Fee & General Announcem
Post by StegRock on Dec 31st, 2006, 12:45am
Fellas,... regarding this ruling on DT's lineup,... I wanted to point out that, good news from an administrative standpoint, what I decided to do here with his lineup this year is (incidentally (as I really did not consider this)) very consistent with what I did last year when he made a similar biff.  Last year, if you remember, he just put next to his players in parentheses "(all games)" or something like that.  Like this year, in that scenario I just gave him the farthest game out that each of his players had stats in.  The beat thing for him last year was that, because he did not specify, this included the Pro Bowl, a game in which you really do not want to be fielding a player other than in the most extreme and odd of circumstances or if you are pretty much out of it and just want to have fun with it.  He did not list the Pro Bowl at all this year.  So, the farthest I will go out is the Super Bowl,... working backwards, so to speak, from there. :)

Well, fellas, the "Results" and "Standings" pages at the league site have been brought up to the moment.  As things are going this year, it REALLY looks like our "Extended Week 17" is going to function the way it was intended, at least in terms of making the final bumper week very exciting and climactic.  (As such) I have also added a nice touch to the "Results" page.  Rather than just listing the games as "Pending" or "Final" like I did last year, I have used "football game" terms to indicate (roughly) how far along the games are.  They and their (rough) indications are as follows:

End of 1st Qtr. = Looooong way to go.

Halftime = Lots of players left to play between the two teams.

End of 3rd Qtr. = Few players left to play between the two teams.

4th Qtr. 2:00 = One or both teams with very few players left; score could change significantly; outcome may or may not be able to change depending on the math.

4th Qtr. :01 = One team with one or very few players left; score can only change a little; outcome canNOT change according to the math.

FINAL = All players have played; game's in the books.

ENJOY, GBRFLers!!! [smiley=woohoo.gif]

The lineups submission section has been turned over.  Lineups for Week 1 may now be submitted.  They are due by the kickoff of Thursday night's game.  Have fun!!!

Also of note, I have ONLY received the league fee from two of you, DF and SW...  Don't forget that fellas...  I'd appreciate yous not waiting until the last minute.  Thank you! [smiley=bow.gif]

REMEMBER lineups, free-agent requests, etc. are due by kickoff TONIGHT!!!  I will almost definitely NOT be in a position to monitor things and turn the system over right at kickoff (I'll be at work).  So, any lineups submitted after 8:30 WILL BE DISCARDED!!!  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

I've turned over the lineups section so you can now view others' lineups (and not submit your own).  I unfortunately will not be getting around to transactions until the weekend.  But, you can see the free-agent requests on everybody's lineups pages and deduce things yourself if you are anxious.  Thank you for your anticipated patience.

"Transactions" posted and "Rosters" updated over at the league site.  Check it on out... [smiley=checkin.gif]

[offtopic]Funny thing,... I was the ONLY guy in either of the GBRFLeagues to go after QB Chris Redman.  This surprised me.  I'm either "ahead of my time" or "behind the times" here.  I don't know which... [smiley=stilldunno.gif] I guess only time will tell...[/offtopic]

Guys,... I'm realizing how working full-time+, i.e. two jobs, and doing this stuff is a ROUGH row to hoe.  In any case,... the results for Week 1 won't be up until Friday (you all's time).  My question,... are you all ready to have the lineups section turned over so that you can input your Week 2 lineups???

Thank you for your patience. [smiley=bow.gif]

Week 1's results are UP.  The "Results", "Standings" and "Schedule" pages have been updated.

An important note, I'm doing the spreadsheet differently this year, both leagues together in one shot.  This streamlines it for me.  But, as such, the Excel spreadsheet is HUGE, basically double the size it had been.  SO, opening it, at least the first time, in your browser can be hairy.  You may be better off just downloading it and opening it on your computer.  BUT, it seems like once you've opened it in your browser once, it's good to go after that. [smiley=idontknow.gif] At least, that's what happened to me.

In any event, sorry for the excessive delay here this week. :-[ I over-extended myself at Kaplan early this week (had signed up to do some seminars before I had the full-time job), and I couldn't get ahead of the eight-ball all week. [smiley=behindball.gif] My schedule starts normalizing starting this upcoming week, so I'm thinking so will things here.  In any case, thank you all for your understanding and patience.

Just to head this off at the pass...

T-Rave, based on order of procurement (of his Week 2 free-agents), has the Bengals DU going for him.

Danny, based on (the way he ordered his defenses in) his Week 1 lineup, has the 49ers DU going for him.

[smiley=yikes.gif] Suffice it to say that FF has had to take a backseat here this week.  Results will probably not be posted until, at best, Friday night (MY time that is).  As such, I've gone ahead and turned over the lineups section.  Thank you for your anticipated understanding and patience.  I'm now going to bed.

Fellas, do note that, after lineup submissions TOMORROW/THURSDAY night prior to kickoff are all in, I will in all likelihood NOT be in a position to turn the system "back over" for the immediate viewing of lineups.  Gino and I are still not settled in in Nor Cal.  For those "in the 'proverbial' know", our housing "blessing" fell through, [smiley=no.gif] and Gino and I have had to scramble,... successfully in the end, but a MAD [smiley=gonecrazy.gif] scramble nonetheless; two weeks of school (which, by the way, I couldn't be in a better place scholastically; [smiley=thumbsup.gif] CIIS is a perfect fit for me) down and we're still living bag-and-baggage out of a hotel room,... :-/ while, thankfully, piece-mealing our way into our new digs, though.  Bottom line, we won't have internet in our home until sometime next week.  So, I will get to turning the system back over as I can (visit a Starbuck's).  BUT, in the meantime, just in case, feel free to start a thread here, on which we can post/share our lineups for Week 1 with each other, sometime after kickoff tomorrow night.  Just don't go posting your lineup(s) (and free-agent requests) BEFORE kickoff tomorrow night!  Title the thread something like "Week 1 Lineups"...  Over and out...

Still not there (as I sit, furniture-less, on the floor of our place with my puter up on a chair), but slowly but surely settling in with a degree of normalcy in view, still off a bit, but it's on the horizon.  As such, and especially with the change I need to "adjust to" in the processing of stats because TQStats is out of the business of providing raw stats, the results ain't gonna be up until maybe as late as Saturday night,... late (Cali time, that is).  I'm hopin' I can pull it off tonight, mind yous, but we just got other more "fundamental-to-life" shit to take care of, and I just cannot guarantee that this stuff is going to "elevate in importance" enough before day's end to get done today (or tomorrow).  I'm sorry about that,... :-[ and I do thank yous for your anticipated understanding of my circumstances and according patience.  However, I have gone ahead and turned over the "Lineups" section at the web site so yous can go ahead and start submitting your lineups [smiley=steg.gif] for Week 2.

It dismays me to even have to be responding to such a post.  I'm sure in your way, Danny, you mean well, but you really gotta think things through and not just impulsively make suggestions based on your subjective experience without more thorough and objective consideration.  Setting aside for just a moment 1) MY FEELINGS and, more importantly, 2) the longer-term "bigger picture" plan and aspiration of this web site and that what you suggest in your post TOTALLY defeats that purpose, there are logistical concerns with your suggestion.  I am virtually certain that there is NOTHING in the way of alternatives that can accommodate the GBRFL format in total as is and leave us with the autonomy to do whatever we want in terms of league rules and structure.  That's kind of the bottom line.  But, secondly, what need do we have for a message board for discussion and trash talk?  Besides the fact that there ain't nothing more Cadillac out there in terms of message-board forums than what,... eh-hem,... your PERSONAL BUDDY has built here, we get a whole web site dedicated to our league, the GBRFL.  The logo for the public message-board forum, "the Gridiron" here, is emblazoned with the GBRFL logo.  We have absolute autonomy in structuring the league.  And, there are the little things like having a site on which you can strut around as one of the king turds with "GBRFLer" under your name.  I'm sure there's TONS MORE not coming to mind as I rush through typing this.  Point is, think about the other side.  Think about ALL you'd, we'd, be giving up if we took (the suggestion of) your suggestion seriously.  The relatively small, nay, miniscule price to pay is a delay in the posting of weekly transactions/results every now and then when YOUR BUDDY is a little overwhelmed with life matters.  What I don't want to hear at this time is that it is a reason to pack it all, NINE YEARS (from when the league site came into being) and UMMMMMPTEEEEEN HOURS of WORK on my end, in and head on over to some cookie-cutter set-up like Yahoo!  But, anyway, you are talking about sites that can take care of "all of our fantasy needs". [smiley=gimmeabreak.gif] How can I be but extraordinarily insulted by the mere suggestion that we should pick up and head over to some BS web site where we become just one of the millions of fantasy-footballing lemmings AND IN THE PROCESS CRUSH MY DREAMS FOR THIS LEAGUE AND FANTASYFOOTBALLER.COM THAT I'VE WORKED VERY LONG AND HARD AND SPENT A GOOD PORTION OF WHAT LITTLE "EXTRA" MONEY I HAVE ON because,... eh-hem,... one member can't handle waiting a few extra days every now and then for his weekly results,... a reality which, of course, is exacerbated because said member can't figure out the scores himself like pretty much all the rest of us can???  (I mean I already know I've won my games by something like 38-0 over Joe and 32-19 over Warner by doing the scores quickly pen-to-paper.)  Danny, you are not even thinking through the logic of this as regards your own actions (you've been one of the ones who has been VERY generous to me, and I appreciate that, [smiley=bow.gif] but) unless you guys are willing to pay me something like a work salary (in which case, then, if you think this through logically, there wouldn't be any problems because THIS would be my job, so to speak), I'm not looking to put the extra cash, by way of the extra "tips" and leftover funds from the league fees, I get from you guys merely into my wallet for pizza money or whatever; I'm looking to put it back into THIS PROJECT.  OTHERWISE, if there were no FantasyFootballer.com and "the Gridiron", I wouldn't even ask for the extra tips from you guys nor even care much about what's left over for me of the league fees.  Therein lies the rub.  The whole point of YOUR making the generous donations that you do and my accepting them is THIS SITE and my dream for it.  In all likelihood all will be back to normal (transactions posted within 30 or so minutes after the kickoff of the first set of games and results up by Tuesday/Wednesday) come next week or, at least, by Week 3 when Gino and I are finally over the hump here of another MONSTROUS MOVE.  Mind you, I'm in the shell of an apartment right now typing this.  I guess my bottom-line response is going to be this.  THIS is the GBRFL @FantasyFootballer.com experience as provided by Steve Stegeman.  Like it or leave it!  You want the blah-blah-blah anonymous FFL @YouNameTheRun-of-the-MillFantasyLeagueManagementService.com provided by some random dude who happened to be better situated to capitalize on the Fantasy Football boom than your buddy who was making draft-day boards with crayons, ink markers and poster-board YEARS before companies started selling draft-day kits, go for it!  There's a million out there.  As for the GBRFL, it is what it is until I am in a position to make it something else, in fact, perhaps something more along the lines of what you are thinking, Danny, and you all's generosity helps me and us move in that direction.  But, it's going to take time and little things like weekly results' going up a little late every now and then have to be endured.  Just take your Prozac and ADS meds a little later in the week on those weeks, Danny, so you can hold on. ;) MIND YOU, I DO appreciate your wanting to make things easier on me, BUT that's NOT the point, AND, not to say that it won't happen again, this is just ONE week, Danny.  Hold on! [smiley=hanginin.gif] ... [smiley=gonecrazy.gif] We're ALL eager to know Week 1's results.  Guess what?  ME [smiley=steg.gif] INCLUDED!

Let me just chime in here real quick as someone who hears what Danny is saying but, in the end, recognizes the uniqueness in our league and value of Steve's efforts.

I agree with Danny that there a lot of sites out there that are good, that give instant scoring and everything.  But our league is one that we (mostly the commish) orchestrated over time with rule changes to make it as realistic and arguably as luck-free as possible, with a 26 game schedule, no week 16 or 17 bullshit playoffs, extended week 17 ... to name a few.

Danny, you may be in another league, but if you are not, I recommend trying it out.  I am in one of those leagues, which is good because I know the scores and stats right away and all, but in the end, what we have built over time in this league is something that those other sites cannot offer.

Fellas, just realized that the "Fumbles Recovered" stat for DU/ST's was incorrect.  Thank God (for me) it did not reverse the results of any games (Pak/Bohrer was a close call) or affect the standings in any way (that would have turned things into a little one-hour-or-so, Sunday-afternoon nightmare).  As for what happened, I see that I selected the wrong "fumbles" category (FF).  That said, even now having the "right", in terms of the statistical categories CBSSportsline offers, "fumbles" category selected (DFR), it looks like it is still going to be something I'm going to have to manually monitor, [smiley=uponreview.gif] at least until I can see if in fact it does produce the exact stat we want, as the category we really need would be (DSTFR) where "ST" specifically means "Defensive Special Teams".  I will say this much.  I did just rerun the stats sheet over at CBSSportsline and the numbers did match up perfectly with my manual re-inputs for Week 1.  So, here's to hopin' it works out with limited "manual" [smiley=shovel.gif] [smiley=builder.gif] labor...

A little DISASTER strikes AFTER ALL, fellas, which had some SIGNIFICANT ramifications on Week 1's results and Week 2's free-agents.  Adding insult to injury here for me this afternoon, "someone" is no longer in first-place (exiting Week 1) and did not get a Week 2 free-agent he really wanted. :'( ANYWAY, when I went to run the stats here this afternoon for Week 2, I realized that I hadn't included "extra points" kicking in the stat pack.  Small of a category as it is, it still caused a reversal in the outcome of one game Week 1, which did cause some changes in the free-agent acquisitions and lineups for Week 2.  I just thank God that I picked this off BEFORE running this week's stats.  That could have turned a bad dream into a full-blown nightmare. [smiley=Freddie.gif] It will, nevertheless, cause a slight delay in getting Week 2's results up.  I intended to have them done this afternoon before heading out to this evening's class.  That's not going to happen as a result of the back-tracking work I ended up having to do today, and I have a class very early in the a.m. tomorrow, so I don't know if I can put all too much into this here tonight when I get back home (at 10:00).  Bottom line, the results should be up by no later than late Wednesday night.

So, anyway, do go over to the league web site and check out the changes, and let's get the grapevine going and, as you can, pass the info along to others to check out what's up here.  I'm sorry for the mistake and complicating matters. :-[ It'll all be smooth enough here soon.  "Extra f'n points"...  Who'd a thunk they could have caused such a mess???

Joe picked off a small error in the standings for Week 2...  I had the 2-2 teams incorrectly ordered.  I ordered them according to Week 2's (head-to-head) results only, i.e. without looking back at Week 1.  This had absolutely no effect on the free-agent pickups for Week 3, and at this point the Week 2 standings have been fixed over at the league site.  Kudos, Joe, on paying attention and picking that off quickly before it could potentially snowball into a nightmare for me.

Fellas, ran into further "new stats service" growing pains that caused all kinds of tedious extra work [smiley=builder.gif] [smiley=steg.gif] here this afternoon totally fucking up my schedule here today [I'm just glad I don't have to do this for two (+GBRFL2)/three (+CBFL) leagues anymore...  Whew... :P].  BUT, it's over now.  The damage was slight.  Almost turned into a total nightmare, [smiley=Freddie.gif] vis-a-vis free-agency, based on DB's and my flipping in the standings Week 2.  But, no, it was okay, thank God.

The problem incidentally was that special teams' touchdowns, TD's scored by kickoff- and punt-return teams, were getting counted TWICE because CBSSportsline's category "DTD" (Defensive TouchDowns), somewhat counterintuitively, includes touchdowns scored by special teams, moreover, despite their providing a separate statistical category "STTD" (Special Teams TouchDowns), which I was also using (as I had with TQStats), hence, the double credit.  So, bottom line, we don't need the "STTD" category; we just need the "DTD" category.  The Excel workbook has been adjusted accordingly as has our raw stats configuration over at CBSSportsline.  In any event, this affected games in Week 1 and Week 2.  There were no game reversals, though, again, thank God.  No games were affected in Weeks 3 or 4. :P  ...  By the way, Week 5's stuff is up. :)

Even though I'm really just thinking aloud and talking to myself here, surely NOT you guys, I want to briefly expound on the above quote from my last post if for no other reason than just to vent.  The posting of the results this week wouldn't have been out of my hair probably until tonight, as opposed to their being done "according to schedule" on Tuesday afternoon.  Considering the problem this week, this would have been one of those weeks during which I overall would have put in roughly about SEVEN+ (bleary-eyed) hours on the "free" leagues by the time it was all said and done.  It would have been miserable for me, and late nights and odd hours with baby Monica Marie, not to mention final papers, haven't even arrived yet.  All things considered (huge move + baby on the way + little to no family support + back to school for Ph.D. work), from just a human perspective, the callousness with which I was treated by the GBRFL2 guys or, in some cases, just their sheer avoidance of me and "the(ir so-called 'beloved') Gridiron" remains jawdropping to me every time I think of it.

IMPORTANT!!!

What is to come involves an illicit, albeit unwitting, "condition" in DB's free-agent requests last week.  Many of you may have noticed it by now.  The bottom line is going to be, on the one hand, one of consent, and, on the other, administrative.  Now, folks have been including "conditions", typically fairly minute in scope and commonsensical, in their free-agent requests and even an, again, small "conditional" trade was made this past preseason.  In the first instance, the "conditions" have always been "in-house", so to speak, involving conditions that only involve the owner's own team (so, consentual as a matter of fact).  In the second instance, the "condition" involved two teams, but both knowingly and consentually.  DB's "conditional" request involved another team, unknowingly and, thus, without consent.  Of course, in any event, this opens an administrative can of worms that would be unfathomable.  Anyway, below are relevant (and sometimes revised) portions of e-mails I sent to DB...

"You are correct about the Cooley thing, and I've fixed that at the web site.  BUT, your other stipulation regarding your picking up of QB's (to block Mark), ultimately didn't matter, but would NOT have been applied, anyway.  While you can submit conditional scenarios vis-a-vis YOUR OWN free-agent requests, you are NOT allowed to do so relative to others' free-agent requests... because it is/functions like you are getting to peek in at their lineup submission before you are supposed to be allowed to.  You just have to eat it when you want to pull a defensive move like that.  To use a different area of our game as an analogue, you can't say if HE plays x, then I'm playing y.  That just isn't right (again, it's as if you are peeking in at others' lineups beforehand), not to mention the administrative NIGHTMARE allowing conditionals involving OTHERS' lineups and free-agent requests would become.  Imagine circular conditionals that cancel each other out.  Oh, my...  I mean... think that through.  Imagine if everybody submitted lineups/free-agent requests relative to others'.  It would be impossible; the situation would be untenable.  But, again, of course, the impossibility is trumped by it's impropriety, in any event."

And, to repeat, in response to the possible retort that it's no different than the trade Danny and Trout made this past preseason...

"... the difference lies in consent.  Danny and Dave's deal was consensual.  This situation is not.  BUT, in any event, there is also an important difference in terms of administration.  Imagine what it could be like with all these 'unconsensual' conditionals.  A logistical NIGHTMARE on me!"

Again, I think once yous all patiently think this through, it's quite clear what the reality here is and what's commonsensically in harmony with that said reality. :)

Title: Re: GBRFL Web Site, League Fee & General Announcem
Post by DB on Oct 25th, 2008, 11:41am
I probably would not have responded but for your use of the word "illicit".

My conditional free agent request was simply the result of our closed line-up system where we do not see each other's trades until after kickoff.   Since my blocking strategy worked the week before, I figured I would try it again to stop my opponent from taking a 2nd QB.  However, not knowing whether my opponent traded up for a QB without my knowledge, I listed some QBs.  If he already traded for the QB, what is the point of me taking a QB?  That is a lot different that me saying ... if my opponent takes X, then I take Y.  I did not do that.  

All I did was condition my free agent pick on whether a trade had occured, which is something I think we are entitled to know, but do not because of our system.

If that is a problem administratively, then fine.  It didn't matter last week and I highly doubt it would have even come up again.  I can see how conditional deals generally can lead to more work in calculating results, which is why I was surprised that the prior conditional deal was allowed so nonchalantly, consenual or not.

Title: Re: GBRFL Web Site, League Fee & General Announcem
Post by StegRock on Oct 25th, 2008, 6:56pm
My use of the word "illicit" was probably a bit over-the-top.  I kind of knew that.  No other word was rolling off my fingertips before going to bed at 5:00 a.m. and I wanted to use a word that would convey a sense of seriousness [as, if DB's condition did apply, it could have resulted (on a day and weekend I had other MUCH MORE "pressing" matters to tend to) in an administrative nightmare for me that could have caused a flurry of discussion, which the commissioner here would not have been able to be much of an active participant in, causing things to likely be held up all week].  However, that is why I followed it with "albeit unwitting", which I consider a bit of a softener.  Maybe a better word would have been "inappropriate".  Though, my suspicions are you would have replied (intelligently as you have, mind you) regardless of what the negative word was going to be (and there was going to be the employment of some negative word).  That having been said, I absolutely apologize for the use of a word that probably was, again, a little too harsh and out-of-line. [smiley=letsmakeup.gif] For the record, let it be known that I don't think that Dave was trying to do anything underhanded here.  I can totally see how he interpreted things the way he did and thought that what he was doing was okay.  As will be illustrated below, we really are in the penumbra here.

As to the substance of the matter, I DO see Dave's point about the timing of the annoucements of trades, moreover, vis-a-vis when they, according to our system, become "official".  This board, frankly speaking, has kind of contributed to the muddying of the waters on this front.  Technically, trades, even ones "preannounced" here, are NOT official, i.e. could hypothetically/potentially be quashed, right up until the kickoff of the first game of the week.  Another way of putting it, they really don't go through until the kickoff of the first game, AND "announcements" here are technically unofficial; the official submission of the trade is the one that is (supposed to be) included on your lineup card or communicated to me by phone (which is very rare anymore, at least insofar as my hearing it before kickoff, and when it does hit my ears before kickoff I typically encourage the person to "preannounce" it on the boards, that is if I don't do it myself, so I'm not working with privileged knowledge that nobody else knows).  Further muddying the waters, of course, is the fact that OFFSEASON trades are "official" once reported (by both parties), which usually happens these days here on our board.  But, again, no lineups need to be submitted.  The conflation is merely apparent, but, nevertheless, really confusing.

In season, one thing we could ALL proactively do to, in some informal way, help with this is to make sure we all get back to including our trades on the lineup cards regardless of whether or not they have been preannounced here and, ideally, just doing it on our cards without any preannouncements.  That would go toward making things more clear-cut again.  To be quite honest, I've made this worse. :-[ I've been lax about letting announcements here function as official trade submissions.  But, in my defense, my practice is rather commonsensical and in the spirit of streamlining things.  That said, just for a little while, in terms of reporting trades, it may be good for us to pull back the reigns and get back to the basics [of using the lineup submission form the way it was supposed to be (and not lean on the convenience of the board here)].

Again, though, there really is no solution to this.  Letting people know about trades you make before they are technically "official" is really a matter of personal preference.  Of course, the retort could be that perhaps we should make it that trades become official upon their completion.  But, a) how in hell would that be administrated/overseen?  And, b) people could finagle their way around that easily if they so chose.  It's ultimately up to the parties involved whether or not they want to TRY to keep it hush-hush [smiley=secret.gif] or not.  But, again, on the "league's" end, NOTHING is "official" until the kickoff of that first game.  So, to flip this back around the other way, and I'm really just reiterating what Dave stated above but in slightly different words, to state conditions on your lineup card that aren't consented to before kickoff is, let's say, "inappropriate" and will be disallowed, and it is important to remember that trades preannounced here or anywhere are not yet "official" transactions (though, common sense dictates, they are probably good pieces of "unofficial" information to put to use when filling out your lineup card) and just because some people choose to preannounce them here doesn't mean that the door is open to making speculative, not-consented-to conditions on your lineup card.

Incidentally, just to be proactive here, don't necessarily think that this conundrum is solely or even at all attributable to the set-up of our web site and our lineup submissions format.  This is not a technological issue.  No matter the format of submitting trades vis-a-vis the public announcement of trades, people could change their minds at any time and trades could be nullified or modified last-minute, making for a whole nother layer of "clusterfuckness". [smiley=rollinwithlaughter.gif]

Also, I now better see the point of Dave's allusion to the predraft trade Danny and Trout made.  It brings to the fore a tertiary factor beyond "consent" and "administration", that of "active participation".  Danny and Dave's deal involved, in a general sense, the selections of others not privy to their deal.  However, there are two important differences.  First, in the draft, unlike with free-agency, each pick is made individually with knowledge of all prior picks and even all prior goings-on known at the moment of each and every selection.  But, more importantly, the guys making selections up until the conditional pick were not active participants in the trade.  Their variability and the variability of their selections remained completely intact.  The participation, if it could be called that, is incidental.  It's like making sure you drop a kicker only for a kicker in free-agency.  The "trigger", if you will, technically is not that particular guys took all the kickers you wanted and, thus, you don't drop your kicker (although it could be theoretically tantamount to that); it is that you didn't get a kicker, so you don't drop a kicker.  It is only incidental or accidental that those particular guys took the kickers you wanted.  The necessary or efficient cause, so to speak, is your not getting a kicker (not those guys taking the kickers you wanted, strictly speaking).  But, mind you, in very extreme circumstances, the incidental and the necessary could be equivalent.  That would just be, quite literally, coincidence, though, interesting to philosophically and logically ponder, a waste of time pondering from an administrative point of view (more "clusterfuckness").

Bottom line, first, if, when filling out your lineup card, whatever you are thinking of doing in terms of conditions involves a) something that is not "official" until kickoff [regardless of whether you actually (happen to) know about it or not, e.g. by way of a preannouncement on this board] and b) sheer SPECULATION about what other "participating" owners do, which obviously means it doesn't meet the so-called test of "consent", then you are not to act on it when filling out your lineup card.  And, to get us all on the same page here, know that I will always disallow such moves.

Okay,... whew... :P ... :)

Also, do remember that this week we have a Thursday night game, by the kickoff of which you MUST have submitted your lineup for the week, Week 10.  That's you all's heads up from the desk of the commissioner!!!  I will probably turn over the lineups submission section late tonight, wee hours for you guys back east, because of this circumstance.  Turning over the lineups section late on Tuesday nights would be my plan every week there is a Thursday game, which is pretty much from here on out.

Post by StegRock on Nov 20th, 2008, 6:28pm
Fellas,

If you've happened to notice... or not, we're having trouble with the league site.  The FrontPage Server Extensions, which drive the hit box on the home page but, MORE IMPORTANTLY, the lineup submission forms, have somehow become, in computer-speak, corrupted.  There is no way to submit your lineup via the form (you'll get a computer error), and I fear, based on the work going on behind the scenes and what's being said, this is not going to be resolved by kickoff tonight.  SO, if you haven't gotten your (final) lineup in yet, plan to do so by some other method, preferably, private message to me "StegRock" here, e-mail, or, if absolutely necessary, phone.  If you did successfully submit your lineup via the lineup submissions form before the system went down mid-afternoon today, providing you have no further changes, you're good to go (i.e., as long as you got the usual, normal confirmation page displaying your lineup, you're good).  Also, if you still have yet to submit your (final) lineup, one quick way to check [smiley=checkin.gif] and see if the system is back up and running before wasting time on the form is to go to the GBRFL home page first (http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/gbrfl/), scroll down to the bottom of the page and see if the "hit box" is displayed.  If it is, the system is probably back up and running.  If it is not, i.e., there is a missing graphic icon [smiley=smileynotfound.gif] where the hit box is supposed to be, then the system is almost definitely still down.

I apologize for this inconvenience.  If things remain down for the evening, before processing this week's transactions, I will go ahead and start a thread here on which I will post everybody's lineups for the week.

Over and Out, :P
Steg

P.S. (Guys, if you haven't already, check out the message I put up to yous here:  http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/cgi-bin/theGridiron/YaBB.cgi?board=56;action=display;num=1227159956.) :)

Heyas, fellas...  Finally have internet at home as of yesterday, and my first order of business was to get the "Lineups Submission" section turned over for Week 1 of the season.  That is done, and you all can submit your Week 1 lineups at any time.  Do REMEMBER that lineups are due by the kickoff of the opening-night (Steelers [smiley=towelwave.gif]-Titans [smiley=titan.gif]) game on THURSDAY, September 10th!!!

Also, a side note,... [smiley=note.gif] I have not yet reset the "Standings" or "Games Results" pages for the 2009 season.  I should have that done, and, thus, the whole site ready to roll [smiley=rollin.gif] for the new season by Tuesday morning. [smiley=steg.gif]

One other actually more important note,... [smiley=note.gif] when trying to contact me by phone, [smiley=phone.gif] please start using our new (551) home phone number instead of our (732) cell number.  It's (been) listed on the "Owner Information" page.  As we continue to get more and more settled in in Illinois, I will start using and even checking our cell phone less and less.  So, if you want to make sure I get your messages in a timely fashion, use our new home number.  Of course, when it comes to desperate lineup-submission situations or whatever, it does not hurt to back yourself up as many ways as possible, but for regular correspondence our home phone is the way to go.  And, as always, it's 24-7 in the Stegeman household.  We just shut the sucker off at beddie [smiley=yawn.gif] time...

Guys, just a heads up,... based on my class and work schedule this semester, weekly results and standings updates will almost never be doable for me on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday daytime, or, in other words, before Wednesday night.  They will almost always be done and posted sometime between Wednesday late evening and Thursday night, hopefully more often (closer to) the former.  I'll do my best to do it as early as possible.  The good thing is, again vis-a-vis my schedule, it should all almost always be done by Thursday night, i.e., I shouldn't need to go later than that, save for emergencies or very unusual situations.  So, though it may not end up being as early in the week as everybody would like, I foresee being more "regular" with the weekly results and standings updates this year.  Thank you in advance for your anticipated understanding and cooperation! [smiley=bow.gif]

(I can let yous unofficially know that I went 1-1 this week... [smiley=yinandyang.gif])

Guys, I am going to need yous to bear with me here a little this week.  I've had a good, but rough one.  BIG presentation (on Nietzsche, who is always a mind-fuck) on Tuesday (went outstandingly), and I volunteered for a department web-site project, which had me up almost all night last night.  I don't think I am going to have the stats run and done before going to bed tonight.  My guess is that the results and everything will be up tomorrow by around 4 o' clock in the afternoon (EST).  I will, however, go ahead and turn over the lineups section right now so people can begin submitting their Week 4 lineups at will.  I apologize for the delay. :-[

Heya, fellas...  This is gonna be one of these "bottom line" type messages...  I know the economy is hitting us all hard.  In terms of sheer numbers I'm sure what we small-scale Stegemans are enduring is not comparable to what the rest of you guys are, but, trust me, relatively speaking, it has its effects on us really little guys, too,... and then I carry the burden of the cost of this web site, especially during this "scale down" when donations from the rest of the members on "the Gridiron" are NOT rolling in.  In any event, I used to notify former donors around a year after they made their donations that they were going to lose their "current" status and be bumped down to the "past donors" list and so, if they wanted to remain on the "current donors" list, this was their reminder.  Now that all league fees are in I thought I would give you all the same "courtesy".  Again, I am NOT asking you to do anything you can't do, but, to whatever degree you can, it would be much appreciated.  It is worth noting, guys, that I have NOT raised the league fee since 1997, a year or two after we departed ASG, when I raised it to $50 up from $25 which is what I used to charge when we were with ASG, which had their own separate fee you had to pay (which I think was $40, which made your annual league fee a total of $65 through about 1995 or 1996).  BOTTOM LINE, if the GBRFLers start falling off the current donors list, the noose of dollar [smiley=money.gif] bills around my neck is going to start really tightening.  You guys, along with a few very generous CBFLers, are about the only hope I have to help get me through these presumably lean next couple of years.  So, without further ado, to see your donation "status", go here:  http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/donate.htm.

Thank you all for your anticipated understanding, consideration and assistance! [smiley=bow.gif]

Thanks Steg for pumping the results out earlier than normal. I know that you are swamped. Congrats on the win over me. I am taking some slice in the aspect that I plyed 2 very close games...basically 1 category either way and I could have had 2 wins. I will take my baby step toward contending next year.

Fellas, versus last week's treat, this week is a nightmare.  To wit, look at the hour at which I am posting this message, and I have not even begun processing the stats for Week 6 (other than to say that I am pretty sure I went 2-0 ;D).  At best, I am going to get a few hours of sleep tonight and the stuff will be posted sometime probably fairly late tomorrow night (eh-hem,... Thursday night that is).  That is if I am not totally zonked [smiley=yawn.gif] when I get home tomorrow.  Honestly, my guess is that my sleep pattern will be off, and it will be late tomorrow night, wee-hours perhaps, that the stuff will get posted.  So, I think the stuff will likely be up for yous to peruse on Friday morning.  We'll see.  If yous're lucky, it'll be not too late tomorrow (Thursday) night.  I appreciate your anticipated understanding and patience.

As it turns out, this site's instant messages are probably the best way to contact me as i check in several times per week.

Guys, because of the THURSDAY night game this upcoming week, Week 10, and lineup submissions due by the kickoff of said game, I will turn over the lineups area sometime tomorrow, Tuesday, so that Week 10 lineups can be submitted a.s.a.p.  However, the results for Week 9 will most likely not be posted until (late) Wednesday night.

ALSO, PLEASE note [smiley=pencil.gif] that, save for Week 17, the final week of the season, from here on out, the "NFL week" begins early:  Thursday from Week 10 through Week 15; Friday, Week 16.  Don't forget to submit your lineups ON TIME!!!  THIS is you all's reminder!!!  Thank you for your anticipated due diligence!

Point of clarification regarding Travis's lineup this week.  He put in for his starting defense "whoever I pick up".  Thing is, he picked up two defenses.  His starting defense would be the one he picked up first, which is the Bills.  But, as yous can imagine, I do not prefer lineups to be submitted with such potential unclarity.  Anyway, that's the deal.  Always remember in situations like these it defers to whoever has spent the longest on your roster, i.e. whoever is "leftmost" as is displayed on the "Rosters" page.

First of all, sorry for the lack of clarity.  I can see how it is confusing.

It does seem, however, somewhat obvious (as Steg has implied) what I meant: clearly the defense I pick up first is the one I am hoping to get (since they are higher on the "add free agent" list), and so clearly they are the one I am intending to play.  

Not expecting to pick up two defenses, I did not foresee this turn of events.  I'll avoid this confusion in future.

  • Scores & updates probably won't be happening until Saturday at the earliest for the current week.
  • The lineup submission should be ready to go later on Friday afternoon/evening.

He may be difficult to reach for just a couple of days and appreciates your patience and understanding.

Lastly, a congratulatory note to DB from me. Suck it. But kudos on your impressive run.

That is, the lineups section will be turned over sometime tomorrow (yes, Christmas day).  I don't have the necessary files here on mom's computer.  I have to fire up my laptop and memory-stick them over, and, with a house full of Steggies all bedded for the night [smiley=sleepers.gif] and mine own eyes hanging out of my head, [smiley=tired.gif] I am not doing that tonight.  I'll try my best to have WEEK 15's stats run before kickoff on Friday night. [smiley=fingerscrossed.gif] Furthermore, thanks to Travis's being on the ball here this week (and not letting a biff snowball on us) [smiley=thumbsup.gif] I will have to do a little Week 15 free-agent cleanup.  Danny should have been ahead of Warner and me in the standings for Week 14.  It does have ramifications on the free-agents for last week.  Point being, bottom line, this will almost definitely be one of those weeks where you will pretty much need to be submitting your lineup for the next week before the results for the prior week are posted.  I apologize for this.  I just came out of term-paper hell and off of a 1,000-mile trip, and it's Christmas.  It just is what it is this week.  It's just "one of those weeks".  Anyway, that's what's up...  Thank you in advance for your anticipated understanding and patience...  And, Merry Christmas...

Well, everything, alas, is ALL caught up at the league site...

[offtopic]If I may be permitted just one more moment of self-pity...  Besides the timing of it all, this was about the most EXCRUTIATING process running the league I've EVER endured.  I know how most of yous take losing.  As I've told many of yous, I honestly can enjoy the general unfolding of the league whether or not I'm in the running, the former of which has been the case for me for five seasons now (but I still derive enjoyment and can still enjoyably run the league), BUT what happened to me this week took a lot out of me.  Just imagine for a moment not being able to walk away from it for a bit when things don't go your way, in fact, have to be immersed in it and, worse yet, go the way it went for me at every turn this week.  Besides the general administrative nightmare, things couldn't have gone worse for my team; every possible fork in the flowchart went the way of [smiley=grinch.gif] "take this lump of Christmas coal, old Steg." [smiley=bawling.gif] Despite playing Trout, a game I should have won, the saving grace was that I was at least in a position to reaquire Jerome Harrison, who I very regrettably happened to cut last week.  I had all intentions of cutting Tony Gonzalez and requesting Jerome Harrison in round one of free-agency (in fact, I expressed it to Mark when I spoke with him about doing me the favor of making the post above).  Anyway, Merry Christmas, Steve.  I gift-wrapped him for you.

Thanks for the encouraging words, Joe.  This stretch run here this year has been sheer hell for the old Stegger [smiley=doseofreality.gif] ... [smiley=downthetubes.gif] (and, to be quite honest, not conducive to my wanting to even deal with this stuff).

In any event, the Week 16 stuff is finally up.  Heading into Week 17 that means the "Results", "Standings" AND "Schedule" pages have been updated.  Enjoy, and good luck to all as we close out the 2009-2010 season.  Do remember (as if most of us even care this year) that you can play players in the post-season.  Just make sure you indicate the order of the games you want said player fielded in, i.e. W17 (although you don't necessarily need this one), WC, DR, CC, PB, SB (yous can hopefully figure out the acronyms).

At any rate, we're leaving to start our journey back to Illinois on the morrow.  I'll start taking care of league matters when we get there and get settled back in at home, which all in all probably won't be until toward the end of next week.  Please be patient and consider anything that happens to get done between now and then bonus.  Thanks in advance...  See yous on the other end...

Heya, guys!  Just to let yous know, regarding the issue I hit yous up with this summer of where I am going to get the raw stats for this year and the significant extra cost I would likely incur, as it turns out, when I had contact with Philly here on the site (Jeff West), who has been letting us jones off his league's CBSSportsline account for the past few years, and was inquiring with him about what minimum level of account I would need to have access to those raw stats that we have to have, he all but cut me off and insisted that we go ahead and use the account for his league.  That was very gracious of him.  So, while this is something we have to keep in the back of our minds moving forward, thanks to Jeff we're covered... again... for 2010!  We all owe a big thanks to Jeff... for all of these years of behind-the-scenes service to us!

Heya, fellas...  As we really hit stride here tomorrow, [smiley=woohoo.gif] I wanted to let yous know how/when things are going to get done this year week in and week out.  Player transactions will be processed as usual in a timely fashion.  On normal weeks they will be done shortly after kickoff.  HOWEVER, the posting of results will not be so timely.  I have a heavily front-loaded "work week".  Let's just put it this way...  In terms of my office hours and all my classes, the ones I am teaching and taking taken together, I am done with everything save for one class period of 50 minutes and two office hours by 1:00 Wednesday afternoon.  My point is, I am crazy-busy Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday until 1:00.  After then, things ease up significantly.  I plan to run the stats and have the weekly results and standings up sometime Wednesday late afternoon, evening or night.  Bottom line, the chances that I have the stuff done on Tuesday is, on a regular basis, next to none.  Alright...  That's all.  I thank yous up front for your anticipated understanding and patience this season.

[smiley=welcome.gif] ... Your contribution will of course be recognized on our donations pages. :) Thank you for your anticipated consideration. [smiley=bow.gif] Over and out...

Heya, guys, this is a reminder about the crazy couple of weeks (Weeks 6 and 7) from the administrative side of the ball that we are headed for next week vis-a-vis Steggie's world.  For details on that world, again, see here:  http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/cgi-bin/theGridiron/YaBB.cgi?board=58;action=display;num=1037120039;start=125.  Here are the bottom lines... assuming, while in Chile, I do not have either convenient internet access or the time to ditz around on the internet, one or both of which I think is highly likely...

1) Know that, if you want to see the lineup(s) of your opponent(s) this week, Week 6, DO SO A.S.A.P. after kickoff... because, since I will be leaving for Chile on Monday, I will turn over the lineups section on Sunday night/Monday morning so that lineups for Week 7 can be submitted!!!  Alternatively, feel free to share your lineups with one another some other way, including by starting a thread for such a purpose right here on our GBRFL message board.

2) Know that official results for Week 6 will NOT be posted probably until after the kickoff of Week 7's games on Sunday, the 24th... as I will not be back home until around noon that day!!!

3) So, know that you will not know your precise position in the standings heading into Week 7, i.e. when you submit your Week 7 lineups and, more importantly, free-agent requests!!!

4) Finally, know that I will try my best to have the results for Week 6 and the player transactions for Week 7 all done sometime on Sunday, the 24th, but please be sensitive to the fact that I will likely be exhausted and heading back into the heavy part of my week!!!  I will, however, in the spirit of full disclosure, make sure to turn the lineups section back over either once I get in the door or once the ball is kicked off, whichever comes first, so that everybody can see their opponents' lineups.

Everybody on the same page here...???  If so, thank you for your anticipated cooperation, [smiley=bow.gif] and know that I apologize for the complications and inconvenience I am causing here. [smiley=zenmaster.gif]

Guys, with the Thursday night game(s starting) this week, the results for Week 9 are done and have been posted!  I will try my best to get this done on Tuesday or Wednesday nights from here on out.  It may be doable, even on Tuesdays, as, just to let yous know, Steg's bachelor time is being extended as the girls won't be back from Korea until December 17th as it turns out.  Alright, enjoy,... and don't forget to get your lineups in by the kickoff of Thursday night's game.  I will turn the lineups section over sometime tomorrow.

Post by StegRock on Nov 18th, 2010, 9:05pm
Just to clarify this here as immediately as possible...  Joe's lineup this week is schmucked (what's new, right?), lending credence to the argument that it's not his players that suck, but rather his team management, and that his brain is like a stupid bowl of oatmeal.  Anyway, for his #3 receiver he put in "Whomever I get".  He ultimately got two receivers.  The interpretation will be that he meant "Whomever I get first".  So, his #3 is Mike Thomas, and his #4 is Randy Moss.  Danny Amendola, whom he got in the second round of free-agency, would be inserted as his last receiver option.  Oh brother, right?  Alright, out...

Quick question-

I see in the transactions that Trout picked up the Colts.   There is not a line up electronically submitted.  

What line up am I going against this week?  Is everything the same except the Defense?

Post by StegRock on Dec 5th, 2010, 1:29pm
Steve, somehow it appended to the bottom of Dave's lineup page.  I'm fixing it right now, but, if you see this message within the next couple minutes, you can go over and see for yourself.  His lineup for this week is all the way at the bottom.

Guys, I am up to my eyeballs right now...

[smiley=drown.gif] They will be up tonight, though.  I will probably be finished with what I am working on at present in about two hours.  At that point, after trying to fit in a meal, perhaps, I will run the stats for Week 13.  Thank you again for your consideration and anticipated patience.

Guys, a heads up and a sort of reminder...  Assuming you want to take advantage of our "extended" Week 17 lineup options, that is, fielding your players in the postseason (instead of Week 17), I would highly recommend your getting on that sooner rather than later (if you want to do a good job of it).  Case in point, I started putting thought into my "extended" Week 17 lineup early this evening; I just pressed the submit button on it a little bit ago.  The calculus on these things can get really hairy if you want to submit an "extended" Week 17 lineup with any level of specificity.  Anyway, just my word to the wise... [smiley=wiseman.gif] Trying to submit an "extended" Week 17 lineup in a rushed-up manner last-minute [smiley=ontheclock.gif] will almost inevitably result in your inaccurately conveying exactly what you have in mind.

Incidentally, the "standard" abbreviations that I prefer for the final week and postseason games are as follows:  SB, PB, CC, DR, WC and W17.  Note that Week 17 is assumed if nothing is indicated.  In fact, the only automatically distributed stats are those accumulated Week 17.  No postseason stats will be assumed and automatically distributed when it comes to calculating the results of the games!

Other than that, good luck to all... [smiley=shamrock.gif]

The results for our extended Week 17 have been updated per the stats accumulated during Wildcard Weekend.  Two games have gone final, so the Standings page too has been updated this time, and, even though the Super Bowl is close, the championship has been all but determined as there really is almost nothing that can happen to reverse the result in Pak's favor.  So, congratulations are basically in order for our soon-to-be official FIVE-time Champ and FIRST-EVER THREEpeat Champion, DB!

Site updated...  A couple more games went final, most notably the Super Bowl game.  Our First-place League Champ as well as our Second-place finisher are locked in.  Contrary to what I wrote above - and it is a bit "personal", if you will - there is still an outside, but not too far outside, chance that one of the games, relevant to the battle for the Third-place plaque, could go the other way.  Stay tuned, and congratulations to Dave Bohrer, [smiley=worship.gif] our threepeat Champ, and Rob Pak, [smiley=twothumbsup.gif] who has moved up a spot from last year from third to second.

Okay, slowly but surely I am finally wearing my GBRFL hardhat again...  The "Rosters" section at the league web site (http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/gbrfl) has been updated just in time for viewing before cuts.  Also, here is the 2011 Draft Pick Grid that Joe worked on: http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/gbrfl/GBRFL2011draftpicksgrid.xls.

That should do it for now.  I will probably have at least the "Transactions" pages updated on the morrow, and you will be receiving the conference call info for the Draft Lottery Monday evening soon.  Keep an eye on your e-mail.  Over and out... [smiley=yawn.gif]

Guys, I just realized something today, and I have been fretting over how to communicate it without inappropriately divulging information.  But, as commish, I feel obliged to express it, and I will do my level-best to be as generic about my explanation as possible...

Remember that in the GBRFL (as with CBSSportsline, who is our stats provider) players are rostered according to the position at which they are officially listed, even though they may be listed on their team's depth chart at different positions and, perhaps, even higher (and more likely to play at) those other positions than their officially listed position!  It is just one of those slip-through-the-cracks-type situations, but it is not new.  We have dealt with this before.

Comprende?  Please, for the sake of avoiding inappropriate divulging of free-agent information, do not respond to this with any specifics here.  Thank you! [smiley=bow.gif]

We are going into Saturday, the last day I receive snail mail before kickoff Sunday, and there remain a few pending league fees.  The league fee is $50.00 (+ gratuity). :)

Unless it arrives with tomorrow's mail, you will have to pay via the site donations link, http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/donate.htm, if you want to avoid penalty.  Remember the penalty for not getting your league fee in on time is not all too stiff: you just cannot pick up free-agents until your payment has arrived.  You can, however, make lineup changes (and I even allow you to make trades as long as your trading partner is someone who has made his payment).

I unfortunately cannot make exceptions to this.  Again, the due date is always a known; fair warning is given; multiple and immediate options of payment are available, and the penalty is not that bad.  I have enforced this strictly in the past, and it would not be fair to make exceptions.  If you have already sent a check and it does not arrive tomorrow, you can pay by PayPal or credit/debit card via the donations link and I will, of course, tear up your check when I receive it.  I have done this before.

Alright, Over and Out,

Again, "Dr." Danny, resident "chiroquackter", has screwed this up.  In the comments section, he specifies which lineup is supposed to be used against whom and in so doing has got it bass-ackwards.  Of course, like the existence of handicapped parking spots, ramps to building entrances, audible crosswalk signals and such, Danny's "deficiencies" will be accommodated.  Mind you, the venerable doctor is the ONLY ONE of us who cannot figure this out.  I am going to try to type this slowly now...  The TOP lineup that you input is for the game listed as your FIRST game of the week per the "Schedule" page (for you, Danny, that would be 2 vs. 10, your game against me) and the BOTTOM lineup is the for the game listed as your SECOND game of the week, your BONUS game (for you, Danny, that would be 4 vs. 10, your game against Mark).  For your convenience this is color-coded on the "Schedule" page and thoroughly explained on the lineup submission form web page.  ... [smiley=RIP.gif] Oops...  I meant RIF... [smiley=RIF.gif] And, by that, "Dr." Danny, I did not mean Reading Is Fucked! [smiley=no.gif]

I do have to say - and, in all sincerity, this is why I love him and he has been my good friend for 22 years - Danny does step up to the plate, take his lumps and readily admit his errors, and all in good nature mind you.  That last part is, indeed, something I myself could use some work on. :)

In terms of the "rules", Danny's intent is revealed in the "Comments" section and clearly so.  I find that there is no good reason not to honor the clearly stated intention of his "comments" other than spite and/or an inability to use good judgment and employing rules in a hard-and-fast way or, should I say, as a hard-and-fast way to avoid making (the) judgment calls (life is full of).  I digress, [smiley=soapboxer.gif] but our immediately deferential disposition to the Law in America has retarded our ethical sense, our sense of being ethical decision-makers and our sense to know where the (admittedly) fine line is that should not be crossed (that fine line is simply the "gray" that we have all been indoctrinated into believing the acceptance of which will lead us to the promised land beyond "black and white thinking", except our education in it has been situated in, instead of a framework of self-reflection and interpersonal attention, a retarding setting of moral relativism fueled by the "culture of ME" so that we do not even know what the hell we are talking about when we talk about the problems of "black and white thinking" beyond some cockamamie slogan about "the gray").  Alright, I will step down off my soap box...

By the way, there is something I want to make clear.  While I (obviously) do not agree with Steve's point here from a juridical standpoint, I do agree with the spirit of his sentiments from a proactive standpoint.  In other words, one warning should have been enough for Danny to have self-corrected.  So, Steve, I am not totally against you.  I hope you can empathize with my position as commissioner and understand my decision, though.

Heyas, Guys...  With ALL that is going on, I did miss one free-agent request this week that was sent to me on time but by e-mail, that is to say, separate from the lineup submission.  The "Transactions" and "Rosters" pages as well as the lineup page for the team have been updated accordingly.  Sorry for the error.

With that said, for the remainder of this season, everybody, if you have to contact me, PLEASE do so by sending me a private message here on "the Gridiron" or just call me on either my cell phone or home phone (and leave a voice-mail), especially if it regards making lineup changes.  Indeed, if it is for the purpose of making lineup changes after having submitted your lineup, while I understand that it may not always be possible, I would REALLY appreciate it if you could just resubmit your lineup through the lineup submission form.  Any extra tasks are a real burden right now.  Thank you for your anticipated understanding and cooperation!

But, anyway, Week 14's results have been run and are posted.  I will be turning over the lineups section earlier today as things with the move and exam are really coming to a head and getting hectic.  So, if you want to see your opponent's/s' lineup(s), please do so a.s.a.p.  Thank you!

DB, unfortunately we just cannot use when you (guys) will be seeing me again as a deciding factor.  The next time I come through will not likely be, at best, until I seek to defend my dissertation and graduate, which I am thinking I will try to do around the SIU Commencement ceremony in May of 2013 so I can defend and walk in one visit.  If my mom is ready to pull up stakes and come be with us in Hawaii at that time, we may then head to New Jersey to pack her up and ship her out.  If not, who knows when I will be back through Jersey?  In any event, the likelihood of the Steg being back on the mainland, no less the east coast, in 2012 is highly unlikely.  I know, guys, try to hold back them tears... [smiley=touching.gif] ... ;)

Moreover, you want this plaque, D (you too, Pak).  It is PHAT and FAT! [smiley=ohshit.gif] I got 3rd Place remember... [smiley=whistle.gif]

Post by StegRock on Jan 23rd, 2012, 12:49am
Well, fellas, on a personal note I must let you all know that life remains far from normal for the Steggies.  With our stuff arriving from the mainland just last week, we are now in the part of this process where we live out of heaps and piles.  Bottom line, I will not be a "regular" here for probably another month.

ANY-way, I have processed the extended Week 17 results through the Conference Championships.  Many games remain pending, BUT, as Danny has made clear in his posts of late, we do have a 2011-2012 Champion, and it is... [smiley=drummer.gif] the aforementioned Danny Feder!!!  A hearty congratulations goes out to Danny for finally dethroning DB... [smiley=bow.gif] (Sorry, D, but it was getting to be too much.)  The site will get updated indicating our new defending champ, as usual, when all the extended Week 17 games go final.  Also of note, second place is in stone...  Let's give a round of applause to Rob Pak on his second year in a row finishing in the winners' circle, indeed, in second place, not a shabby couple of runs. [smiley=clap.gif]

Other notes...
  • What a great Super Bowl game!!!  Danny puts the nail in DB's coffin with a narrow 7-point victory.
  • The third-place plaque remains up for grabs.  It comes down to the game between DB and me and Victor Cruz in the Super Bowl.  DB currently has a slight 3-point lead.  Another great Week 17 game with award ramifications!
  • Finally, the games involving Steve Warner only technically remain "in progress".  His coach is all that is pending, and his games are not going to come down to that.  HOWEVER, there is something important to note here in terms of setting precedent, and I am just thankful that it has come about in a way that has absolutely no impact on the results.  If, in terms of the extended Week 17, I cannot reasonably discern the meaning of some acronym or abbreviation you used to indicate a postseason game, I will ignore it and just go to the next one.  Case in point, for the game Warner wants Belichick used he input "DC".  That could reasonably be interpreted as "Divisional Round" OR "Conference Championship" [especially when wedged between "WC" (Wildcard Round) and "SB" (Super Bowl)].  As such, I am ignoring his unclear listing of "DC" and just going with his next choice of "SB".  Mind you, I do not think there are many ways to demarcate these games unclearly (it has not happened until now), but "DC" is definitely one of them. :-/

Okay, fellas...  Everything is already all ready ;) for Week 2.  The "Results", "Standings" and "Schedule" pages have been updated, and the "Lineups" section has been turned over so that lineups for Week 2 can now be submitted.  If you have concerns about game results in relation to your opponent's lineup, contact me by private message here OR just wait until Thursday night when lineups section will be turned back over.

By the way, every week around this time, Tuesday late afternoon/evening for you guys back on the mainland, is when I anticipate having this done.  This is a good window of time based on my work schedule.  So, barring unforeseen or exceptional circumstances, you guys can probably get into the habit of checking for the week's results and having access to your lineup submission form around this time every week.

Also, I have decided NOT to increase the league fee again this year, giving you all an opportunity to truly show your appreciation, which most of you do anyway, which, indeed, is a "contributing" factor to my not increasing the fee.  Indeed, I rather like this kind of setup.  I acknowledge and even personally thank those who give extra on "site donors" pages I have set up: http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/donate.htm and http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/cgi-bin/theGridiron/YaBB.cgi?board=58;action=display;num=1068780634;start=150.  In any case, the league fee stands for another year at $50. :)

I have a quick rule clarification.  Joe only entered 3 RBs this week (thus why I think adding ANOTHER line up submission is such a mute point-guys cant even take the time to enter 1 correctly.)  Am I correct in assuming that his 4th RB would be the RB that was listed 4th last week, then his 5th RB, OR would the RB he added via free agency go 4th?    I am sure I could find this answer SOMEWHERE, but thought it would be quicker to ask.

I bring up this question because Ryan Matthews is listed as one of his 3 starters.  He may play- but he may not.


After the three Joe listed, you would just start going down the list of his prior lineup, skipping players listed in his current one and adding the rest in the order of that prior lineup.  For example, at running back, Daniel Thomas is his #4; Helu, his #5.

In further reply to my post right above in response to Steve's query, after exhausting ALL prior lineup submissions (in this case there is just the one for Week 1), the last thing consulted, if need be, is "order of acquisition" per the "Rosters" page.  So, Curtis Brinkley, Joe's free-agent pickup this week, would be last in the pecking order of his lineup at running back for this week.

OK. I'll be the first (or second I guess) to admit i didn't know that even if you submit a lineup, the rules still allow for reference to the last lineup. I though you were screwed if you didn't list a player on the current lineup.

What's the point of posting all your players in the current lineup? It seems like you can get away with just listing your starters. unless you're Mark, Joe, Steve or Trout. Then you gotta throw everything out there and pray.

OK. I'll be the first (or second I guess) to admit i didn't know that even if you submit a lineup, the rules still allow for reference to the last lineup. I though you were screwed if you didn't list a player on the current lineup.

What's the point of posting all your players in the current lineup? It seems like you can get away with just listing your starters. unless you're Mark, Joe, Steve or Trout. Then you gotta throw everything out there and pray.

With all due respect, yous have not been paying careful attention then.  But, I am glad you are now.  That said, I think yous do know; yous just are not thinking it through.  For one, I am certain both of you have been in many games down through the years where I have done this for either you or your opponent.  Moreover, though, there is the logic of it.  If you do not submit any lineup, what do I do?  I defer to your last one.  I am just doing, with partial lineups, what logically follows from/is logically consistent with that.  That is to say, I am treating partial lineups the same, that is, in a consistent manner.  Indeed, there is no (logical) reason not to do so, and, given the cascading aspect of our lineups, there is actually reason to do so.  In any event, I have been doing it like this for years.  Yes, you can get away with partial lineup submissions, that is, if/when you do not care about the order of your backups.  Not thinking through your backups, though, especially in this day and age, is playing with fire!  Furthermore, if we do make the move to two weekly lineup submissions, given the logic (of the "bottommost rule"), the order of backups will be even more important.

To me, not listing potential starters on your current lineup, would be the equivalent of not having them dress for the game. If they're not dressed, they can't play. But I digress....I'm not looking for a rule change, I was just using my own "logic" in interpreting this rule.

I get what you are saying, but to not do so would be to go against (at least the spirit if not the logic of) our cascading lineups.  To not do so would potentially serve to punish those who submitted a partial lineup more than those who submitted NO lineup.  That don't seem right!

By the way, every week around this time, Tuesday late afternoon/evening for you guys back on the mainland, is when I anticipate having this done.  This is a good window of time based on my work schedule.  So, barring unforeseen or exceptional circumstances, you guys can probably get into the habit of checking for the week's results and having access to your lineup submission form around this time every week.


Not so this week, fellas...  I am totally clusterfucked here today and this whole week.  I will turn over the lineups section tonight, so that you can submit your Week 4 lineups starting tomorrow morning.  Whether or not you will wake up to Week 3's updated results and standings is another matter.  Probably not, and tomorrow afternoon the clusterfuck continues.  I really do not come up for a little bit of air until tomorrow evening, and then Thursday afternoon/evening I am clusterfucked again.  My hope is to have Week 3's stuff done before kickoff on Thursday.  It is going to be close, though.  Thank you for your anticipated patience and understanding.

On a different but VERY pressing note, [smiley=note.gif] league fees are due THIS WEEK.  I will give yous until Sunday to get the payment in to me, but that means I will not process the free-agents for Week 4 until either I have everybody's payment in or kickoff Sunday.  (Danny, I got yours yesterday, along with that healthy donation.  Thank you very much!  You will be acknowledged on the donations page when I can finally get around to that...) By the way, you all cannot send your payments off tonight or tomorrow and expect it to get to me by Sunday.  The most immediate way to pay me is by credit/debit card directly or via PayPal.  You can do that via this page: http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/donate.htm.

Gentlemen (used extremely loosely),

Just received a voice mail from Steggie he left last night. Unfortunately, he took a bad fall last night in the classroom (missed a step during his lecture) and he is in pretty bad shape.

He had all intentions of running the numbers last night but with his accident, he was not able to do much of anything. He was able to turn the board over for lineups.

Please be patient as right now, it's unknown exactly what he might have done to himself (bad sprain in his arm or potentially hyper-extension or dislocation). This is just speculation as I am not a doctor nor do I play one on TV.

Mr Commish-

Hope you had a good holiday and everything is all right.  You seem to be in communicado for a few weeks.   If it because of your standing in the league, please know that I have a vested interest in where you finish!

Title: Re: GBRFL Web Site, League Fee & General Announcem
Post by StegRock on Jan 19th, 2013, 8:41pm
Heyas, guys...  Incommunicado, I have been, and many of you have been leaving messages for me via one means or another.  I apologize.  I will tell yous, though, that the reasons for my extended absence (outside of my being utterly disheartened by the, honestly, unexpectedly horrible performance of my team this year -- I expected to at least be competitive) are good.  The biggest one regards career, that is, my, in an unbelievably fortuitous turn of events, picking up a class at Windward Community College.  For those who might recall, yes, this is that one community college that is squarely on my short list of schools (mostly universities) at which I would like to end up, and I have just gotten my foot in the door. [smiley=dancin.gif] I will not bore yous with the rest, much of the usual, though: Mama Steg in Hawaii for the holidays (last minute), the learning curve that goes with the first year of a career, dissertation, fathering a four-year-old, blah, blah, blah...  Just up to my eyeballs.  For those interested, we will talk eventually.

Anyway, league matters...  Last year's plaques (Danny and Rob) will, alas, finally be on their way out next week.  This is VERY late in the going, I know, but, like last year, I think our plaque recipients (which include myself) will be very pleased with their hardware. :) As for the final results and standings for this year, I just did, do not have time this time around to do the weekly updates throughout our extended Week 17 (as I have done for some of the years in the past).  However, I do have the raw stats (for Week 17), and the spreadsheet is all set up.  There are still a few pending players that are being fielded potentially as late as the Super Bowl.  Once all these players' stats are in (which New England and San Francisco losses tomorrow, unlikely though that is to happen, would, I think, cause), I will wrap up our 2012-13 season.  As for which way the wind is blowing on the final standings, I really haven't a clue.  It seems to me that Joe is looking good, but that is based on just a "feel" of the stats, not on specific analysis or the processing of stats, so take that with a grain of salt.  Finally, the web site was down for a few days this past week because I forgot to renew the registration on FantasyFootballer.com. [smiley=yikes.gif] I ended up being THREE days late on that, that is, after the expiration of the domain.  All I can say is thank God it was not poached. [smiley=dodged.gif]

Well, Over and, again, Out for a bit,
Steg

Alooooooo-ha!  We are getting back to business here for the 2013 season!  The 2013 Summer Meeting & Draft has been scheduled for Sunday, August 18th at 3:30 p.m. (EST), and now some of the intial updates to the league site have been made.  The "Transactions", "Rosters" and "History" pages have been updated!  Of particular note this year, I really cleaned up the presentation on the "History" page and added to it.  While I am sure it is a page that you all may not visit often or may not have visited for a long time, after the update and a long-overdue cleanup, now may be the time to drop on by, remind yourselves of our roots and learn some things about your league mates as well as some interesting trivia about our wonderful league and its history.  Also, we have, alas, broken the 200-year fantasy football experience mark! [smiley=ohshit.gif] That is indicated on the league home page (http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/gbrfl).

Well, I got on something (else like the "History" page) that was long overdue (but is much more important).  I worked on the "Schedule" page, the first time since the original expansion in 2002.  Since then the NFL has changed their bye-week schedule.  It is very difficult to design a generic schedule reusable from season to season, mind you.  Ours was okay, but it had been some time since our schedule matched up really well with the NFL's given the changes to the NFL's in relation to bye weeks since 2002.  I never messed with it because it gets very complicated (it is not just a matter of shifting games around at random), and I did not have the time.  Alas, I finally did this year, and it was a nightmare. [smiley=Freddie.gif] In the end, the tweaks are not huge, but the schedule is now more evenly and appropriately distributed vis-à-vis the NFL's bye-week schedule.  I am very pleased!  I hope you guys will be, too, although, while you may notice some things, you probably will not notice much.  Ah, c'est la vie... :-/ ... :) In any event, go check it out when you get the chance!

Thanks for the pat on the back, Stevo!  It is a demanding task that takes HOURS. :P It took over FIFTEEN hours to originally design and about SIX hours to revise yesterday.  That said, the schedule is not perfect, far from it indeed.  I am just glad I got Week 3, which has not been a bye week for YEARS, and Week 4, which is(/has typically been) a light bye week (at least it is this year), up to 9 games.  I still lament that I could not get Weeks 10 and 12 down to 8 games.  Thing, though, is, the NFL bye-week schedule can change from year to year, and I do not want to mess with this every season.  I just want a generic schedule that will suffice year in and year out.  So, it will never be perfect. :-/

Guys, in connection with the above, let me share with yous how I am going to roll [smiley=rollin.gif] things on Thursdays this season.  I have figured out how to do "Scheduled Uploads" with my FTP program.  So, what I am going to do is leave my home computer on on Thursdays and schedule the lineups files (that turn the system over to "no submit and view all") to be uploaded at 9:00 p.m. (EST).  In other words, if all goes as planned, you will be able to view others lineups come 9:00 p.m. (EST).  By then, the Thursday night game surely should have kicked off.  Please do note, though, that a lot could go wrong with all of that.  I will be eager to see how (smoothly or not) it goes on Thursday.

WITH THAT SAID, do remember that lineups need to be in and time-stamped BEFORE kickoff!  I will consult the official game transcript at NFL.com to see exactly when the ball was kicked off.  Any lineups (or lineup changes) submitted after that time will be voided!

Lastly, my intention is to have the week's free-agent transactions done that evening.  It probably will not be until very late Eastern Standard Time, however, like after midnight.  That said, you will presumably, hopefully [smiley=fingerscrossed.gif] have access to others' lineups before then and, if you so choose, can figure it out on your own.

Oh, Lawd... [smiley=gimmeabreak.gif] I can see that the game is being delayed.  Are you kidding me?  Of all years!!!  Anyway, until kickoff, you all can still submit lineups/lineup adjustments.  Problem is, I set the system to automatically turn over, and that was successful.  So, I will NOT allow any changes to "free-agent" requests to be submitted.  BUT, if you want to change your lineup, you have until kickoff.  Just do so by e-mail, phone or private message here!  Out...

Fellas, I want to let yous know how transitioning to the next week is going to work this year given my schedule.  Late on Tuesday I will turn the lineup submissions section back over so we can submit our lineups.  In effect, for you guys back east, it will be Wednesday morning.  However, the prior week's results will likely not yet be posted.  Tuesday is my most brutal day of the week (followed by Thursday, which is also very brutal).  My easiest days are Wednesdays and, the easiest, Fridays.  My plan is to have results for the prior week posted sometime on Wednesday.  In effect, again, for you guys back east, it may be Thursday morning, but I will do my best to get them posted as early as possible.  That said, if/when it is even possible, given the time difference, it is still going to be difficult to make that happen much before midnight.

So, that is the deal.  We are looking at a season during which you may be in the position of submitting a lineup before you know the prior week's results.  As yous should strategically know by now, if you are in that position, in relation to requesting free-agents, assume the best in terms of your place in the standings and make your request lists sufficiently long.  Thank you in advance for your anticipated understanding and cooperation!

Heyas, Fellas!  League fee is coming due soon (next week, Week 4).  If you are planning to send a check in the mail (VERY inadvisable at this point because it almost surely will not make it to me by Thursday if you send it regular mail), remember that we have moved since last year.  We are not at the same address!  So, please do contact me and get our new home address!

In other perhaps semi-related news, the 2012 plaques are in the works.  With life's hecticness and no get-together for the Summer Meeting & Draft, I have been getting on this VERY late in late years.  It will be earlier this year, but I do say that relative to the last couple during which guys (including me one of the years) did not receive their award goodies until the following February/March.  Things have just been too hectic.  However, my goal this year is for you guys to have the plaques by the end of the regular season. [smiley=builder.gif]

Anyway, get those league fees in soon if you want to be eligible to get free-agents next week!!!

An inactive coach (who has an interim coach filling in for him), e.g. Kubiak or Fox this week (and until they are back) (and Pagano last year), would be considered like a coach on a bye-week and given an automatic -99 (actually that is a negative infinity).  In other words, if it comes down to a tie and you have an inactive coach of whatever kind (and your opponent does not), you lose!  That is precisely why I dropped Fox this week (and kept Pagano).  Fox will be considered inactive until he is back.  Del Rio is (for) now (until Fox returns) the Broncos head coach.

Alright, guys, we have a (mildly) problematic situation this week with someone's lineup.  Danny, your team is coachless this week!  John Fox is out.  Jack Del Rio is the acting head coach of the Broncos.  Why do you think I dropped Fox?  Why did Joe pick up Del Rio?  Gotta pay attention, man!  Indeed, read my post immediately above in which I address this very issue.  In any event, it is what Danny indicated on his lineup submission, so I have got to put it through.  Danny, pray that neither of your games this week comes down to a tie.  If either of them does, you lose.  Sorry!  In any event, drop Fox next week, and pick up a new head coach!  Good luck!

What do you mean it would be the same with any other free-agent?  If you requested an injured player or for that matter Jeff George, that is whom you would get.  Actually, per your logic, I should get Fox back (and get my win over Trout last week).  But, instead of being a whiny fuck like you, when this VERY unusual situation emerged last week, I took the high road, bit the bullet and set the ultimately right precedent and example for the league and dropped him with no questions asked.

Just get a new coach next week, and stop your whining.  You fucked up, not me!

Your just bitter being at the bottom. The coach is requested on your team in jack del rio, when foxy returns he replaces model rio on your team no? It's no different then picking a free agent that is on a team already, it's not dicy, it's simple.

First off, it is one thing when we are trash-talking, but sifting through your chimpanzee-level English when talking about something that requires the least amount of intellectual rigor is exhausting. :P Second, did you read my response and, as I suggested, the prior post?  Does what you suggest, outside of just being your made-up logic on the matter, correspond to how things went with respect to my dropping Fox and Joe's picking up Del Rio?  (Hint,... NO!)  Do I have John Fox?  NO!  (For that matter, not that it would matter, do I have Jack Del Rio?  NO!)  Fox is OUT.  Do we automatically get the backups to the players we have?  NO!  (Although, oddly, or maybe not so oddly, that is another illogical path you have gone down and given me a headache over in the past.)  So, I dropped him (and lamented greatly over it, and, as it turned out, it cost me my game against Trout).

Bottom line, you picked up an inactive head coach, the equivalent of Dan Reeves (if you had listed Reeves, I would have given you Reeves).  Again, the right precedent on this has been set.  Thank God we do not have someone who employs arbitrary (self-serving) logic at the helm here.  This has NOTHING to do with my location in the standings.  At any rate, hope that your games do not come down to a tie-break, and pick up a new coach (better than Philbin) next week.

I got to thinking about these 3 sentences -- actually, there are 5 sentences here, which are masquerading, via spliced commas and thereby run-on sentences, as 3.  Steg is objecting to the logic of the argument on the formal side, as I understand it; but there's a nice material fallacy here, too: "Your [sic] just bitter being at the bottom."  Argumentum ad hominem, ladies and gentlemen!

And, yes, I am taking the opportunity to have fun being a philosophical windbag. ;)

Gotta random "what if" question.   Joe did not start a defense this week as he listed Viniateri as both his kicker and defense.  I assume he would start the seahawks because that is who he started last week.   :(  

My question is this, what if he had different defenses starting last week in game 1 and game 2?  (I ask because I often do that)   Would the game 2 Defense be his default defense OR would they be game 1 and game 2 line ups again.

Great question... that our system matter-of-factly answers!  A person's lineup for the week is his topmost one per his lineups page.  In other words,... in Steve's words,... the last submitted lineup would "be game 1 and game 2 lineups again."

With that said, let me use this as an opportunity to mention again a rule of our game that often gets forgotten/misunderstood.  We do NOT cascade kickers and defenses!  Ignoring/Skipping a listed kicker or defense in your list that you failed to acquire (via free-agency) or simply do not have on your roster (and you just had a senior moment) is NOT an instance of cascading!  If you list a kicker or defense on a bye-week as your #1 kicker or defense, even if you have other kickers or defenses, you are screwed!  You, in essence, do not have a kicker or defense for that week!

Now, back to the main topic here, what would be stickier is if the person listed, as Joe did this week, "Adam Vinatieri" (that is to say, a NON-defense) as his defense for game 1, [smiley=laugh.gif] but another actual defense for game 2 (or vice-versa).  In that situation, I would do the generous thing and defer to the other defense he had in that week as opposed to referring to said respective game per his last submitted lineup.

Well, that is all for now...  Over and OUT... [smiley=onit.gif]

Title: Re: GBRFL Web Site, League Fee & General Announcem
Post by DB on Nov 22nd, 2013, 4:42pm
I understanding the non-cascading rule paragraph, but I don't understand the application paragraph.  

If Joe lists Vinitieri as his defense, does he get the defense from his most recent lineup or not?  If so, would that be a cascading lineup?

No...  Common sense has to kick in.  Adam Vinatieri is not a defense.  So, ignoring/skipping Adam Vinatieri in his lineup is like ignoring/skipping a defense in his list that was not acquired (via free-agency), not cascading to another defense [further down his list because of, say, a bye-week, which is not allowed (for defenses)].  He did not list anything else (for either of his games), so I defer to the order of his defenses in his prior week's lineup(s).  (That happens not infrequently as in when guys do not list complete lineups.)

Cascading only occurs when a player (quarterback, running back or receiver) accrues no stats.  Ignoring/Skipping a player not acquired (or incorrectly listed as in this weird case with Joe) is not that.  In most instances, the distinction makes no difference.  BUT, sometimes it does.

Heyas, fellas...  Been out of pocket for quite some time, I know...  Been under the gun on multiple fronts, good, bad and otherwise, but what has waylaid me the most is something good...  Another lease year ends, another move for the Steggies... [smiley=cruisin.gif] What's new?  However, here I see us staying unless we purchase a place or we find ourselves moving back to the mainland.  As Monica gets ready to start kindergarten next year, we realized more and more that we did not want to raise her in a high-rise and that the school district that we were in was just okay.  An opportunity arose for us to move into a house, a beach area-style cottage, in a school district with an outstanding elementary (and, for that matter, middle) school, and, while it is a little farther for me, it is close to my wife's work.  Moreover, it was fully remodeled, and, on a personal note, it is the first HOUSE I have lived in since I was NINE-years-old and the first place free of other people's grime since I do not know when.  It is awesome living in a house, moreover, one that is, for all intents and purposes, brand-new.  In any event, we started moving piecemeal on February 8th and ultimately had to be out of our prior place on February 20th, and, anyway, we just this past weekend got internet going in our new place.  So, alas, here I am...

Things over at the league web site are, again, alas, up to date and closed out for the 2013-2014 season.  "Results" for our extended Week 17 along with the final spreadsheet and the final "Standings" are posted.  All of the places where our champion is recognized now acknowledge our current champ, for a WHOPPING SIXTH time mind you, Dave Bohrer. [smiley=king.gif] A bit belated, but congrats, [smiley=worship.gif] D!  Our second and third place finishers are Joe [smiley=smileytrash.gif] Parsons and Rob [smiley=bow.gif] Pak, respectively.  Congrats to both of you, as well!

Well, the NFL Draft is fast approaching!  I did get a little jump on next year.  The "Rosters" page is updated for the 2014-2015 season!  At any rate, I will be back and fairly active again here.  See yous around!

Joe did e-mail this out to everyone.  Thanks, buddy!  A couple e-mail addresses may have been out-of-date.  So, I cleaned the grid up a touch, though it was well-done and flawless (as far as I can tell) in terms of its composition, and decided to make it available for download like I used to (but have not for the last few years).  Here is the link: http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/gbrfl/GBRFL2014draftpicksgrid.xls.  Enjoy!

The "Draft Grid" as well as the "Rosters" page at the league web site (I have not made the 2014 "Transactions" page yet) have been updated in accordance with the most recent trade made between Pak and me. :)

Steg and all, the draft Grid Steg has posted does not have the correct updated DATE on it after my and Danny's deal.

Minor, but I didn't want you guys to get confused.

So, please change STEG's recent draft grid updated date to July 1, 2014.

Danny confirmed our trade via IM on the site, I don't know why he has posted on the thread though.

Okay, fellas, the "Draft Grid (http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/gbrfl/GBRFL2014draftpicksgrid.xls)" (linked to right there within the quotes) has been updated per the results of the Draft Lottery.  Also, a mistake was noticed.  In the Julio Jones deal between Danny and Mark, it was not that Danny got Mark's 9th-rounder and Mark Danny's 2nd-rounder as was indicated on the "Draft Grid" spreadsheet.  It was the other way around.  This also affects the draft pick Steve got back in return in his deal with Mark this offseason.  This has all been fixed.  Please download and (only) consult the "Draft Grid" linked to above.  It is the only one that is assured to be correct.  Given this development, I have also gone ahead and updated the "Transactions" page at the league site accordingly.

Heyas, Fellas!  Since I will be in class during the kickoff of the Thursday (night) game, I have set the program to turn over the lineups section right at the scheduled kickoff time of the game, 8:30 p.m. (EST).  So, PLEASE submit lineups in a timely fashion.  Ultimately, they are time-stamped, and any lineup submitted after the kickoff of the game (which can be verified through official channels) will be discarded.  Ideally, everybody just has their lineup in by 8:30!  Thank you all for your anticipated cooperation!

Fellas, I am still processing the stats for Week 1.  I hope to have them done tonight my time, that is, for you guys back east for when yous wake up tomorrow morning.  In the meantime, as we have the Thursday game to contend with, I have turned over the lineups section so that Week 2 lineups can begin to be submitted.  Have at it!  If you submit a lineup before I post the results, just make your free-agent list(s) deep as if you were in first place!

Now, truth be said, based on my schedule this fall, this will probably be how things unfold on a weekly basis.  That is, I will probably be turning over the lineups section before having the results posted for the prior week's games.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation!

Thanks Steve.  Since the NFL has a Thursday night game every week, they have made this more difficult on all of us.  

I will be happy to remember to get a line up in on time - so I appreciate you turning it over early so I have more time to submit.

'Twas Week 1, and we had a complicated tiebreak situation right out of the gate!  To do the tiebreaks for places 4th through 7th this week, I had to remind myself how I do this... [smiley=thinking.gif] It caused me to search the archives here, and I noticed the following, which we got to be clear on as -- who knows -- a championship may come down to it...

THIS was stated correctly...

on 01/01/12 at 05:24:12, StegRock wrote:
Here is a rough sketch of the championship scenarios IF THERE IS A TIE at the top between two or more teams...

If Danny beats DB, Danny is the Champ!

If DB beats Danny and...

... Danny and DB are in a two-way tie, whoever has the better points differential is the Champ!

... Danny, DB and Pak are in a three-way tie, Pak is the Champ!

... Danny, DB and Steg are in a three-way tie and Danny or DB have the best points differential, whichever one of them has the best points differential is the Champ!

... Danny, DB and Steg are in a three-way tie and Steg has the best points differential (virtually impossible) but Danny has the second best points differential, Danny is the Champ!

... Danny, DB and Steg are in a three-way tie and Steg has the best points differential (I repeat, a virtual impossibility) and DB has the second best points differential, Steg is the Champ (again, virtually impossible)!  (I have a better chance of holding the single winning ticket for the Megamillions Lottery drawing AND being struck by lightning as the winning Mega Ball is rolling into place than I do of that happening.)


THIS was, in its specifics, stated INcorrectly...

on 12/04/10 at 20:27:19, StegRock wrote:
... But, remember a fourth game is very likely going to be involved.  So, if, let's say, Team A has a 2-2 record against Team B; Team B has a 2-2 record against Team C, but Team C has a 2-1 record against Team A, Team C is your Champion.  But, here's a more complicated scenario...  Let's say Team A has a 2-2 record against Team B, and Team B has a 3-1 record against Team C; then, if Team C has a losing record against Team A, it comes down to points differential between Teams A and B for the Championship; if Team C has a winning record against Team A, Team B is your Champion.  Follow?


I have always determined standings in a "head-to-head way".  That is to say that I always look at pairs of teams and determine who has the advantage (tiebreak).  That is determined, first by head-to-head record, second by points differential, and third by points scored (never has happened).  So, when I wrote above that ...

Quote:
So, if, let's say, Team A has a 2-2 record against Team B; Team B has a 2-2 record against Team C, but Team C has a 2-1 record against Team A, Team C is your Champion.

That was incorrect.  I did not factor in points differential at all!  (Maybe it did not really matter that year.) [smiley=shrug.gif] Team C would be the champ as long as Team C had a better points differential (or points scored) than Team B.  If not, the champion would be Team A or B, whoever had the higher points differential.  The second scenario is right, but in the case of the third scenario ...

Quote:
... if Team C has a winning record against Team A, Team B is your Champion.

That is only if Team B has a higher points differential than Team A.

Mind you, this all did not matter at the proverbial end of the day when it came to calculating who the champion was that year.

SO, anyway, back to 2014 Week 1...  If everything was as it is and Joe had the second-best points differential of that group of teams, he would have been in 4th place because he had head-to-head tiebreak over me.  If he had the third-best points differential, he would have been in 6th place unless I had the second-best points differential, in which case he would have been in 5th place above me.  Also, if I had the third-best points differential of the group, I would be sitting in 7th place right now, and Joe in 6th.

Is everything registering?  THAT is how I do tiebreaks whether it is Week 1 or Week 17 for the Championship!!!

REMINDER...  League fees are due by kickoff THIS Thursday!  Remember that your ability to conduct transactions (at least, those involving your free-agent picks) will be frozen until you submit your $50 league fee!  You will not be permitted to pick up free-agents this week, Week 4, if your league fee is not received by the kickoff of the game on Thursday!

The most immediate way to make a payment is by clicking the "Lend a hand... Make a donation to 'the Gridiron'!!!" link above and following the instructions...

Heyas, Fellas!

There is a problem going on behind the scenes here with our beloved FantasyFootballer.com.  The WHOLE web site is going to have to be migrated to a different server.  This is going to result in the site's being down for up to 24 hours starting sometime on Wednesday, the 8th, that is, today.  If you cannot wait until Thursday (afternoon) to put your Week 6 lineup in, either e-mail or private-message it to me.  OR, on the other hand, IF YOU ARE READING THIS, THEN THE SITE IS UP AT THE MOMENT!  GO AND SUBMIT YOUR LINEUP RIGHT NOW!!! <- Scratch that!  THAT is a part of the web site that is affected by the issue we are incurring!  BOTTOM LINE, you will know that things are in working order again and that you can go ahead and submit your Week 6 lineup the usual way when you see the hit counter toward the bottom of the GBRFL league home page working again.

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation during this period!

Over and Out,
Steg

Well, all systems are a go...  I just submitted my lineup, and a couple others successfully submitted theirs.  If you already sent yours to me by e-mail or private message, I would really appreciate it if you would go on into the lineups section and submit it (again the usual way).  Otherwise, I will have to.  With that said, given this circumstance, do understand that, when lineups are revealed tomorrow at kickoff, there may be some that are not yet up-to-date (if they were not resubmitted via the lineups section).  Thank you all for your cooperation during these latest technical difficulties!

Heyas, Fellas...  I was informed of a BIG mistake on the Standings page!  In fixing that, I realized that there were some further small, but intricate mistakes in Week 6's standings that resulted in errors in Week 7's standings as well.  Points differential stuff.  No big deal, but it was tedious as hell to work through.  That said, they caused no changes in the overall standings for either week, thank goodness (eh-hem... ;)).  That is all for now...  Over and out...

Yucky... :P UNFORTUNATELY, figuring out Danny's free-agent requests this week took some interpretation.  Looking at his lineup submissions for the week in their totality, his intention seems pretty clear.  He just wanted to add "Hawkins" to his request list in the second round.  He obviously still wanted to go after a defense given how he listed his DU's.  So, that is how I judged it. [smiley=uponreview.gif]

That said, I do not like being put in these positions, mind you. [smiley=nownow.gif] Danny, everybody, please do your due diligence when submitting your weekly lineups and free-agent requests.  Relying on generous interpretations by the commish is NOT what a good owner does.

I agree it was the right thing.  In my 2 seconds of looking at your line up, I thought you were just making 1 pick up.   It was nice of him to do was my point.  

To Steg's point,  it is tough being a commish and having to decide your clear intent vs clear intent of the multitude of other fuck ups.  

In regards to our match up, I actually expect your team to beat me this week.  I am due and I do not have favorable match ups.  Eagles, Browns it really does not matter to me.   Eagles defense is pretty crappy.   Browns are better but have a potentially crap match up in the Falcons.  

End of the day, I will still have a 3.5-4 game lead.

Heyas, fellas...  Old Stegger here has just hit one of "those" weeks (finals week), and I am still SWAMPED [smiley=drown.gif] at the moment.  I tried my best, but I am just unable to devote the extra 45 or so minutes that I would still need at this point to get Week 15's results posted before I have to head out for work.  In other words, the results for Week 15 will not be posted before the kickoff of tonight's (sizzling, might I add) [smiley=laugh.gif] Thursday night game.  So, if you have not submitted your lineup for Week 16 yet, please just submit free-agent requests with a range of where you might be in the standings in mind.  Thank you! [smiley=bow.gif]

Once I get to about 3:00 this afternoon (my time), I will get a lull.  I will definitely have Week 15's results posted before I go to bed tonight, if not much earlier than that.  So, please just stand by.  Again, I thank you all for your patience. :)

WAY overdue CONGRATULATIONS to our first-time CHAMPION Steve Warner and his Zacaroni and Brees!!! [smiley=king.gif] What a run!  Got that monkey [smiley=monkey.gif] off your back, huh, Steve?  You will now be able to better appreciate all the other runner-up and/or third-place plaques!

Also, congrats are due to our 2nd- and 3rd-place finishers, Mark Hahn and Danny Feder, respectively!  Hahn's 2nd-place finish is kind of ironic looking back at all the mid-season consternation the week Mark failed to submit a lineup.  In the end it is, if anyone, he himself whom he hurt. [smiley=hmmmm.gif]

With that another GREAT GBRFL season concludes.  Now, how about some offseason wheeling and dealing??? ;)

Heyas, fellas...  I made a mistake in the code for the drop-down menu upgrade to the "Results" and "Standings" pages which made the drop downs inoperable.  That is now fixed.  I apologize for the inconvenience.

Also, on a different note, regarding Week 1 free-agency, remember that the order goes worst-to-first per last season's final standings, NOT according to the lottery.

Heya, Fellas...  I have gone ahead and turned over the lineups section so that lineups can be submitted for Week 2.  I am going to need you guys to bear with me this season with the posting of results.  Every time I think that the minefield must surely be clear, another one blows up right in front of me.  It is not all bad, mind you.  I am just at one of those junctures in life where career is taking off (but there are loose ends that need to be tended to to really make that happen -- dissertation), mother is aging and ailing, daughter is growing and both are needy and a handful, and making ends meet is still a challenge.  It really is an unbelievable confluence, and, if I told you the "good news" I received tonight, you would be like how the hell are you going to pull it off.  But, I digress.  I hope to have the results posted by, for you guys on the mainland, Thursday morning.  It could be by tomorrow evening, but, please, do not count on it!  Over and out...

Heyas, fellas...  I forgot to turn the lineups section over this week until tonight.  I apologize.  I just plumb forgot. [smiley=doh.gif]

In connection with this, a small disaster was narrowly averted.  Bottom line, if you notice on, say, Tuesday night that the lineups section has not been turned over, pop me a private message and let me know.  I would prefer you do that first than send me your lineup by e-mail or private message, which I could accidentally open and, in any event, I have to then input (which is extra work for me).  Only submit lineups to me by e-mail, private message or phone as a last measure.  Thank you!

REMINDER...  League fees are due by kickoff THIS Thursday, October 1st!  Remember that your ability to conduct transactions (at least, those involving your free-agent picks) will be frozen until you submit your $50 league fee!  You will not be permitted to pick up free-agents this week, Week 4, if your league fee is not received by the kickoff of the game on Thursday!

The most immediate way to make a payment is by clicking the "Lend a hand... Make a donation to 'the Gridiron'!!!" link above and following the instructions...  That said, here is a direct link for your,... eh-hem,... Danny's ;) convenience: http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/donate.htm.

Yo, guys...  One more VERY SLIGHT change to Week 3's results had to be made.  It affected nothing except a couple teams' points differentials ever so slightly.

That said, if you need to make changes to your lineup after submitting it, here is the preferable protocol:
1) Resubmit it via the lineups submission page;
2) Send the changes to me by private message here on "the Gridiron";
3) E-mail the changes in to me to the LEAGUE E-MAIL ADDRESS per the "Owner Information" page (gbrfl@...);
4) Phone the changes in to me.


This situation was simply a case where I had not checked the e-mail address to which a lineup change had been submitted.

Also, if any of you have had any trouble opening the scoring spreadsheets, you will not now.  There was a problem with the links.  I fixed that too. [smiley=builder.gif] Whew... :P

Yo Steg,

Is it permissible to submit a line up that clearly contains a potential change if a certain player is inactive.  

For example, can I list my receivers as follows:

Cooper
Allen
Beckham
LaFell
Harris

If I then note that "if Beckham is inactive this week, then I move Harris up to #4 and LaFell down to #5".  In that case, if Beckham is active, then the lineup stays as is.  If not, then the change is triggered.  Let me know if that is allowed.

Sure, but I do not know why you would want to do that. ?.?.? It seems to unnecessarily complicate things.  Why would you not just list Harris at #4?  But, anyway, that is academic.  Go ahead and do whatever. :)

I think the way Dave wants to put notes is essentially negating  the cascading line up and opening a big can of worms.  If we can start putting comments, can I just start listing line ups like this?  I don't have to worry about injury reports any longer?  

Start the first player unless they get no stats:

Murray (Matthews)
Lynch (Rawls)
or would it be like

Murray
Lynch
Gore
Hillman
Matthews
Rawls

*Move Matthews to 2 if Murray is out
*Move Rawls to 4 if Lynch is out


Move Rawls to 4 if Murray doesn't play
Move Matthews to 2 if Lynch is out.

Well, I thought about this some more... [smiley=thinking.gif] To be clear, it is not about whether he is "active" or "inactive" for the Giants.  It is about whether he catches any balls or not and is, thus, respectively active or inactive for you.  I hope that is the auspices you too were operating under.  I surely do not want another layer of work added to the process of processing the weekly results, nor does interpreting it any other way seem to be within the spirit of our system.  Alright, out...

Steg-

I see the biggest benefit of changing the line up as protecting against injury.   For example, see the example below.   If I wanted to l have Rawls play if Lynch doesn't play, I would list him 4th in the current process.   However, suppose Lynch DOES play, but Gore gets into a car accident and does NOT play.   I would then get Rawls stats since he is my 4th RB listed.

If I could start specifying the order based on injury, I could list Hillman as my 4th RB and get his stats instead of Rawls because Gore did not play.  If I could start specifying, Rawls would ONLY play as my 4th RB if Lynch does not play, thus assuring Rawls would get better stats.   If I got Lynch's AND Rawls stats, that would probably suck

Does that make sense?   I personally think it sets a bad precedent and makes things really confusing.  

Title: Re: GBRFL Web Site, League Fee & General Announcem
Post by Art Vandalay on Oct 23rd, 2015, 7:13am
This is handled very simply by entering the proper cascade of starting players. I don't see a need to change it. I would rather discuss making post Thursday changes to the line up if Thursday players are not affected.

Also...I noticed that the Box Munchers were deft enough to pick up the Atlanta Falcon Defense this week.....unfortunately..........the Cuban Missile Crisis has no record of the Falcons defense being dropped, and they are my starting Defense this week. Soooooo....

Ooops!!!!

If they would like to keep them, I will be happy to accept Phillip Rivers in return.


Title: Re: GBRFL Web Site, League Fee & General Announcem
Post by DB on Oct 23rd, 2015, 8:27am
I will explain the benefit but first I will say that I am not trying to make things more confusing.  Sometimes it is better to keep things simple.  However, I know that we try to set up our rules to maximize strategy/minimize luck and a big part of that is dealing with the disadvantage that we all have in dealing with the need to submit lineups on Thursday when many injury situations are unknown.

In my case, I have 2 players who may or may not play, Keenan Allen and Odell Beckham.  I also have both backups, Dwayne Allen and Malcolm Floyd. While it is likely that Odell will play and Keenan will not, I am not sure.  I set my lineup with Floyd at #4 assuming that Keenan will be out, but in the event that Keenan plays and Odell does not, I would prefer to play D. Allen rather than Floyd.

So I am basically trying to set up a contingency in my lineup for the possibility that if Keenan not does play then I have his backup in and if Odell does not play I have his backup in.  In a CBS/Yahoo league, I would be able to make that switch on Sunday morning based on who is active.  Here, we cannot do that because we set our lineups before the first game.

I do not think this is too confusing.  Some of us were initially confused by the flex lineup but now I assume we all get it.  On the other hand, if is seems too confusing or if it is too much work for the commish, that is fine to not allow this.

Another thought that I have for dealing with Thursday's games would be to set up another round of free agency on Saturday night/Sunday morning.  That would be more work for the commish as well, so that may not be a good idea.

Another option is to perhaps set up a system similar to the replay challenges in football where a team can make a lineup changes  Sunday morning a certain number of times per year.  This would only be for players who have not yet played. If this is limited to 2x per year (for example) like replay challenges, then this would limit the use of this rule.

Title: Re: GBRFL Web Site, League Fee & General Announcem
Post by StegRock on Oct 23rd, 2015, 4:51pm
I get it now.  Thanks, Steve, Dave! [smiley=bow.gif]

This Thursday night stuff is causing us to be much more attentive to handcuffs.  Interesting.  Anyway, contrary to Steve, I do not think this is a big deal as long as the instructions are clear AND it is understood that what is meant by "active" and "inactive" for our purposes are, respectively, "produced stats" or "not".  Otherwise, regarding the latter, it is as if we are changing the rules during the game as a player's "real" injury status has never been considered an "official" factor in our game before whereas the production of stats OR NOT has been an official factor (for cascading).  Also, interpreting it this way somewhat mitigates the effect of this strategy as, to use DB's current situation as the example, it is possible that, say, Allen plays but does not record any stats BUT gets playing time and targets at the (partial, potential) expense of Floyd, who he now has in his lineup based on Allen's actual "inactivity" in terms of producing stats.  So, it is in this somewhat middle-ground way that I am going to proceed.  But, moreover there is precedence for doing so!

Indeed, the syntax on this when filling out the lineup form would be:

1) Amari Cooper
2) Odell Beckham/Dwayne Harris
3) Keenan Allen
4) Malcom Floyd
5) Dwayne Harris

(Since Floyd is listed at #4, it is needless to indicate "Keenan Allen/Malcom Floyd".)

The meaning would be, if Beckham accrues NO stats, then Harris goes in over Floyd.  Not only does this not seem like that big of a deal, but it seems to serve as a possible, albeit partial, SOLUTION to the problem that the Thursday night kickoff causes us!  MOREOVER, as I stated above, we even have precedence for such a practice in the form of our extended Week 17 lineups, wherein we are basically allowed to submit lineups in this very fashion, indeed, factoring in and making contingencies for injuries(, Week 17 benchings and playoff matchups).  What Dave is suggesting is really just to apply what we do Week 17 to the whole season, and that seems fine.

So, PROCEED!  Just understand that "inactive" does NOT mean "officially inactive" but "NO stats", and we are good to go! :)

Heyas, fellas...  This might be a week worth double-checking the spreadsheet.  I am good on my end, I believe, BUT I picked off an error in the raw stats provided by CBS Sports.  I only noticed because it involved one of my games.  PK Matt Bryant's stats were totally jacked.  Do not get excited, DB.  Our game is correct.  Before running the stats, I had figured it out manually.  That is how I noticed the error.  The final score per the spreadsheet did not match what I had meticulously figured out on my own.  This development caused me to go through a handful of the place-kickers' stats.  They were all correct, so...

As the worst team in the league by far, I will do my best to be a factor.  The good news is that I have Marshawn Lynch back for the playoffs and Brian Hoyer is starting for the Texans (finally).   And while the Titans Defense is poo poo, they are facing the Colts with their 4th string, still unnamed, starting QB.

[smiley=nownow.gif] Just moments ago submitted the completed dissertation to the committee!!! [smiley=booya.gif] Defense scheduled for June 22nd at 2:00 p.m. [smiley=nervous.gif] ... ;D


Crazy [smiley=gonecrazy.gif] times yet again in the world of Steg, so things with the league have to remain on hold until July, and we are definitely looking at a late draft this year.  Stegs will not come up for air [smiley=drown.gif] until July 3rd, but even then not really.  That said, amidst it all I would not mind hooking up with some of you east coasters.  Here are our upcoming dates...

We are in the throws of moving to a new place (YET AGAIN).  With some overlap in leases,.. we are currently in the process of packing; movers coming on June 3rd; will be out of this place and on a plane heading to New Jersey on June 7th, arriving on June 8th.  Reason for this current move: we are moving Mama Steg out with us.  That said, on June 20th, will hop in the car and head to Illinois to, per the quote above, get that dissertation defended on June 22nd.  Then, back to mom, and, after getting some movers and chuckers involved, we ALL head back to Hawaii on July 2nd.  Steg, of course, then has to be back in the classroom on July 5th to teach Deductive Logic for the first time, [smiley=uh.gif] which means that I should devote a good amount of time to reacquainting myself to formal logic [smiley=RIF.gif] and preparing the class... [smiley=LMFAO.gif] on the planes, I guess. [smiley=shrug.gif]

So, here we go...  Gonna be crazy, not much time to ditz around, but if you want to get together, let me know a.s.a.p., and let's see what we can do.  If you want to drop by the old Steg residence one last time, this is the last opportunity, preferably before June 20th, that is, before things are in total upheaval, and visitors are not really going to be welcome.

Over and Out... [smiley=onit.gif]

An FYI and a question here...

First, the FYI...  As for contacting me [smiley=phone.gif], the 551 #, at which I have been unavailable for the most part of the past three months, is now again the best # at which to reach me.  The 732 # should only be considered a backup again.

Second, the question...  Does anybody (Joe) have an updated count of everybody's protection-spot count, and could you please forward it to me by private message here on "the Gridiron" or to the league (gbrfl) e-mail address?  I would like to update the "Rosters" page.  Thank you in advance!

Good call Mr. Warner. I too would like to extol the virtues of our newest Doctor - who has been for the past 25 years the "Fantasy Doctor. " He brought the medicine again in the form of an awesome, albeit lengthy and always humorous draft.

I think we owe it to the Good Doctor to try and make the 25th anniversary celebration in Vegas a true reality. I'll be working on the details during the year via a thread Steg and I will get up and running. In true Seinfeld form, Steg has indoctrinated me with the highly esteemed title of "The Assistant to the Traveling Secretary" -#trulyhonored

Here's to a great season and yet another top 10 finish for me!

Thank you both for the kind words.  "Dr. Steg" [smiley=jammaster.gif] will do, incidentally. ;) 'Tis all in fun, anyway, of course, but "Doctor" by itself makes it sound like I am a medical doctor, which I am assuredly not.  I am of the less useful academic variety.

ANYway, some IMPORTANT notes...  PLEASE make sure to get me any team name changes A.S.A.P., preferably before I turn over the lineup submission section, which I plan to do tonight (the sooner you do so the easier you are making it for me).  (Travis, I am not recalling yours in full.)  Also, for those who have updates for the "Owner Information" page, such as changes or additions to e-mail addresses or phone numbers, please get them in to me, preferably by private message right here on "the Gridiron".  Thank you!

League fee is due before the kickoff of Week 4, that is, before the kickoff of this Thursday night's game.  If it is not received by then, your ability to pick up free-agents will be suspended until the week it is received!  To get this done in the most expeditious manner, go here: http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/donate.htm.  Thank you!

Just saw that I received a few more payments (and, in most cases, donations in the way of some extra added in), BUT there are stragglers.  NOT a big deal, but I have to enforce the rules: no free-agents until league fee has been paid, starting this week.

Ugh... :P Last night or early today our website hosting company, Hostica, decided to change its server settings for security purposes.  It has caused a couple web pages at FantasyFootballer.com not to display (correctly) because they employ applications Hostica is no longer supporting.  One such page is:

http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/addit.php.

Not a big deal.  However, another such page is:

http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/gbrfl/index.php, that is, our league home page!

I was just closing in on finally posting the final 2016-17 results when I realized this.  We have got to have our home page working when I get the final results up, so I have diverted my attention and am devoting my time (which I do not have) and energy (which I do not have much of) to familiarizing myself with a new technology and getting this problem rectified first.  I apologize for the extended delay here this year (we all pretty much know the results, though, anyway), but these are the kinds of behind-the-scenes booby [smiley=boobies.gif] traps that crop up from time to time and consume me. :'(

O-kay, guys...  The league site has been updated for the close of the 2016-17 season.  You can check things out here: http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/gbrfl/index.php.  Updates include the "Champions" and "History" pages!

On a critical note, which I have been posting about here as of late (see above), the upgrades our hosting company, Hostica, has recently made to their servers, including but perhaps not limited (as I am stumbling upon things here and there one-by-one) to changing PHP and SSL settings and entirely removing FPSE (old-school Microsoft FrontPage Server extensions), are causing all kinds of snafus on web pages throughout FantasyFootballer.com and our other affiliated domains.

I think "the Gridiron" forum here, alas, is stable, though.

With that said, please let me know of anything strange/seemingly malfunctioning that you notice on any web page.  I am aware of many issues, but I am sure not all of them.

Moving forward, the loss of FPSE has MAJOR ramifications heading into next season as, though I generally used FPSE only for a few small things here and there, such as the hit counter on the GBRFL league home page (which I have already taken care of), I built the lineup-submission application with FPSE.  Now, I have some knowhow with some newer technology, but no matter how you carve it up, it is going to be a BIG job.  In fact, all things considered, it may end up being too big of a job for me to take on this year, and so we may have to tide ourselves over for a year with e-mail or something.  We shall see.  Obviously, I am going to try my best to have something in place by Week 1.  But, at the proverbial end of the day, it just may not be doable this year.

You are very welcome, Steve, all.  AND, I think I have even greater news.  I think we got the other half of the lineups problem (viewing your opponents' lineup) resolved!  We unfortunately are still going to have to make do (with a thread or something) here at the beginning of Week 1.

Also, thank you, Steve, for reminding the guys about inputting full names.  With other (league) issues taking precedence, the upgrade to the scoring spreadsheet that would make you all's inputting your players' FULL NAMES extremely helpful to me has been tabled for a bit.  It would not hurt to start getting into the, à la Aristotle, good habit of doing it that way, nevertheless.  I (and Gino) do plan to attack it at some point this season, preferably sooner than later.  (By the way, side note, when it comes to defenses, all I want you to put is the team name, but in full: e.g., Buccaneers.)

Other than that, WOO-HOO, [smiley=helmethead.gif] here we go...

The good news is that in my effort, albeit piecemeal, to get the league site updated for the new season, the "Transactions" page has, alas, been brought up to date!  So, you can see what free agents were acquired in Week 1.

The GREAT news is that for your kickoff Sunday the lineups section is up and running so that you can view others' lineups!!! [smiley=thumbsup.gif]  We may experience one more hiccup when it comes to turning over the lineups section for Week 2 so that you can submit your lineups, so be prepared for a little hubbub heading into next week.  But, other than that, which if it does happen, I do not think will be a big deal, I think I got this thing beat!!!

Guys, please try to consult the lineups of your opponents and save them as soon as possible because as we head into Week 2, I will almost definitely make the attempt to turn over the lineup-submission section earlier than usual, like tonight, just in case we experience any trouble!!!  Thank you for your anticipated understanding and cooperation!

Heyas, guys...  The "Results" and "Standings" pages have been updated, that is, reset, and with that the league site is, alas, finally ready to go for the new 2017-18 season!  As stated in my message right above, FYI, the lineup-submission section is likely to be turned over for Week 2 earlier than usual.

Yo, Guys...  Do not miss my prior two messages above from earlier this evening, but, FYI, I also updated the "History" page at the league site.  On that page I maintain the number of years each of us has participated in fantasy football.  HOLY MOLY are we getting old! [smiley=wiseman.gif]  248,... TWO-HUNDRED AND FORTY-EIGHT,... years in all!!! [smiley=ohshit.gif]  Check it out! [smiley=checkin.gif]

Also, just another FYI,... if you want to change your team name, NOW is the time!!! [smiley=impatient.gif] ... ;)

Heyas, fellas...  Week 1's "Results" and "Standings" are, alas, up!  Just an FYI, this is the timing to get used to...  I will probably be posting the weekly results and standings on Wednesday night my time, effectively Thursday morning for you guys.  Let me put it this way...  The earliest I ever see me having this done is around 8:30-ish (EST) on Wednesday night.  There is virtually no use in checking before then unless I let yous know.  Thank you for your understanding and patience! [smiley=bow.gif]

Guys, there will be a slight delay (of hopefully no more than an hour) in the turning over of the lineups section so that you can view others' lineups.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and continued cooperation! [smiley=bow.gif]

Fellas, have you noticed,... the GBRFL Home Page (http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/gbrfl/index.php), after all these years, is nearing 100,000 hits???  It stands at over 99,500.  If you never noticed, the hit box is at the bottom of the page.  At this time of the year we hit it/it is hit about 100 to 150 times per week.  So, we are just three weeks to a month away from ONE-HUNDRED THOUSAND hits! [smiley=jawdroppin.gif] WOW!!!  What a ride it has been!!! [smiley=yes.gif]

The league fee of $50.00 is due by the kickoff of this Thursday's game.  It is late, so, other than overnight mail, the only way to get your payment in on time and avoid having your ability to acquire free-agents suspended (which I truly want everybody to do) is electronically...

You can go here, http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/donate.htm; option 1 is preferred.

Thank you! [smiley=bow.gif]
