    Welcome the to the official thread of the XN Fantasy Football League for the 2016 season!

    XN - Moist Redemption


    Prepare to get..... moist.










    League URL: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/league/pigskinxnation


    I will update this first post accordingly with updates and information about the league rules as time goes on. The most important change this year is that we are NOT doing the dynasty/keeper format. It will be run with "normal" league settings and rules to make it more appealing to new players.

    Traditionally, this league has had 12 players participate in the past couple years I have been a part of it. Also, I intend to keep the same $20 USD buy-in as before as I think it makes things more fun and interesting, and also promotes more activity in the participating players.

    I know life happens, and I know that this is not going to be a few folk's primary league this season. However, I really want active and regular participation this year, and if you feel like you cannot commit a couple hours a week to analyze trade offers or set your rosters, then please do not participate. Easy money is cool and all, but I rather try to win playing against a bunch of bad@ss people then win money from people who never show up.

    I look forward to being the commissioner this year, and I especially look forward to playing with friends and talking non-stop trash throughout the season.

    Thank you for your patience as I get the league organized.

    --------------

    The payout structure is as follows:

    $240 total prize pot money

    First Place: $130

    Second Place: $60

    3rd and 4th Place: $25 each

    The top 4 teams will get a payout. I am removing the consolation bracket winner's prize from the year before to distribute that $15 into the top 2 finishers to make it more enticing.

    --------------

    In. Ready to dominate during the regular season and then go down in flames during the playoffs for the 3rd (or 4th; I've lost count now) year in a row.

    He decided to step down. He's running(?) two other dynasty leagues this year that will consume all of his time. We had a gentlemen's vote on who would be the next commissioner, so I volunteered and won.

    Glad to see you back Tim. It's been too long!

    I look forward to crying during the regular season about how dominant you are, then watching all of your players get injured or suspended in the playoffs lolololol.

    I understand your anger and frustration, and I set up a pretty good team too. But 2 seasons in, and we not having all the exact same players across both seasons, made it a pretty easy decision for me. Also, when I asked informally among the folks that wanted to play this year, most were in favor of doing a normal league which I was as well. And the folks that did respond to my question were regularly playing and active members too, so I took their votes seriously. It makes it more fair and fun to new players, and while we could still get to 12 players, I don't think we will which means those extra team's keepers will have been forfeited, further nullifying the point of a dynasty league. If we had the same group of 12 people every year who were committed, I'd be completely for it. But I saw how much stress it gave Mac trying to get everyone's keeper info, and how some people didn't even respond to his multiple requests until the very last minute. I don't want that stress of chasing down grown men to remind them to stay on top of things.

    Sorry to see you go, but hopefully we'll see you next season.

    This is my first time being the Commissioner in a Yahoo! league, and they don't explain things clearly about how re-invites work and purging teams. Since I didn't have a list of who was who in regards to their screen names and the league names, I thought it best to "remove" the teams from their "assumed spots" and I'll send out re-invites once I have emails-to-XN names-to-Fantasy League Names.

    Inside the league, all the teams except for Mac are still there, it's just that I removed them from their "assumed slots" in preparation of the aforementioned method. If there was an easier way to do it, perhaps I missed it. But this way works out good in my head and it'll be easier to track throughout the season.

    If we were doing keepers, it probably would've been easier to send out re-invites since everything was already in place. However, since we are doing traditional, everyone moving back into "last season's teams" isn't really that relevant. Basically, I'm doing it like it's a fresh league, even though it's not and most of the rules are still in place, along with obviously the league name and tenure behind it.

    In looking at the team names in the league, I only remember who maybe 3 people are in regards to their screen names on here. I had this same annoyance last year because a lot of the time I didn't even know who I was playing. That is one of my goals this year; to have a list in this thread that displays XN screen names to their team names. And while we are on the subject, I'll start getting invites rolled out now to avoid a shat show later on.

    Once again, bear with me because I still might have to completely remove a team from the league in order to get you into your proper spot. But, if I have your email and it matches up to an already existing team, you should just glide right in like... well.... you'll glide right in (in theory, again, still getting this sorted out). Without further adieu...

    PM me your email address so I can send you a league invite!!

    I will bump this thread as often as I remember to, until I have all the verbally confirming people accounted for. I will also include the list on verbally confirmed people that I still don't have emails from, and will obviously remove the ones I have.

    Thanks!!

    4 out 10 teams are officially locked into their slots! I sent invites to drbandkgb and CaptainMorgan_SOS based on me knowing their team names, and a couple other folks haven't accepted the invite yet. I sent a Facebook message to Tim to tell me his team name from last year, but I'm fairly certain I know who his team was. I think I know what Rob's team was too, but I'm not 100%

    I'm anxious to get the verbally confirmed people locked in so I know what teams to remove completely from the league. I get hesitant to do it, because then if they had tenure in the league, it tracks their stats from the year before if they're inclined to care about that stuff.
