I was a good owner last year.







For the first half of the season.

Is there a website that can manage this for us? I liked the concept of drafting players, etc., but it's a pain in the arse to track your scores, come post here, etc. Certainly SOMEBODY does this on a site.

premierleague.com has a fantasy feature but it's based on salaries etc, not sure it can be used for our purposes

I assume you could do it on the BPL site. You only pick the players you drafted. Someone would review the league's rosters before the match week started to make sure everything was on the up and up.

Based on the salary cap on that site can we get our full teams loaded up?

If so that would be great. We had an honor system last year and it was fine

Nice work. I am definitely in.

I want back the owners from the Championship who played wire to wire. Full support for DB, Wait for it, Mick, myself, and the others who played the whole time. Sheep and Jumbo were good enough.

Banned list:
bluebarricuda
cwil177

I can be the commish now that I know the ropes. Self-scoring was badass IMO. Just load your team on to the EPL fantasy site watch list. It automatically gives you each player's weekly total.

I support Vicks as commish 100%. If WSE wants to that's cool too since (I think) he created the league last year.

I also agree with your owner assessments. Who was our original commish last year? He was a solid owner also and stayed with it. Sheep and Jumbo faded not sure why but yea the watch list makes it simple.

Can we use the premier fantasy site at all (for those who want minimal weekly effort)

I'd like to think I was one of the better owners in our league...until it crumbled into pieces.

100% in. I was one of the few from the Finns league who actually paid attention. Lets make sure whoever does this is in for the long haul this time.

If it's through the EPL site, I can keep up with that. I keep up with my EPL site team all year long. I don't have a consistent PC, so it got to be a pain in the arse doing the TD one on mobile

I forgot to include Atom. I may have missed one other good owner.

The problem with using any salary cap sites is that we all can repeat players. Everyone can own RVP or Suarez. That takes all of the fun out of it IMO.

A 10 team league is absolutely perfect. I was very happy with the player pool. Rosters are 15 players each and it expands to 16 after the supplemental draft. It is a one-round reverse order draft to add a player who was transferred into the EPL after our slow draft.

Basically, running our league is absolutely necessary to get the layout we want. It does not take much work at all to add your watch list once a week.

I say we do our draft and just use EPL site for the stats. You can only use players that are on your team and only one team can draft each player, also drop/adds like last year also.

Blue, if there is room, then I would give you another chance if you can keep up on the EPL site. All you have to do is your TD drafted squad to your watch list on the EPL site and check their most recent week score. You also have to post your roster into the league thread each game week and post your team score.

It is like 10 minutes of work a week tops if you want to play.

Mick, can you write the list of players who want to join in the OP? I support GeauxColonels and BPG. They kept up in the other thread.

I guess we could do that, but I liked all on here. One problem was that my team was too expensive too roster. I loved managing our own league with just relying on a site, but maybe that was just my opinion.

It would be easy to create one big league page on a google doc with multiple tabs. Have a tab for table, schedule, rosters, transactions, etc.

I owned Bale, Walcott, traded for Silva and Podolski, and had other pricey players that made my squad ineligible on the site because the team value was over 100 Euro.

Interested if we can get it up and running on a site. (Seriously, Yahoo or ESPN doesn't do this?)

The only internet I'd like to do this on at work is my phone and it's sketchy as hell.

It's a pain in the arse to go back and forth between sites, etc.

Anyway.... if we find A site to manage it, I'm game.
