    Default Fantasy League Review: Thoughts on this season/changes for next

    Since we've gotten down right to the very end, figured I'd kick this thread off to see what the general thoughts are.

    What'd you think? Be honest. Things you liked, things you disliked, things you definitely want to stick around for next year, and/or things that can be tweaked. I've got a thread buried in here somewhere with some changes that we're definitely going to make, and then some possibilities for some others.

    Been a fun one gentlemen, hope to see you, or those of you that posted your line ups every week at the very least back up in here next season.

    Draft took too long. You should post draft times. 7:00-9:00 each night or something like that. If you can't draft, you leave some options for draft commish and he can draft for you. You get 10 minutes and then the next guy goes. If you aren't here, you draft when you get back the next day. Post a big board so people don't draft the same people twice.

    LoSt has to have more luck. This bad luck stuff this year just seemed unfair for him.

    I say people pay $10.00 or more so that they are incentivized to post line-ups and to participate. I was one who didn't so I will be the first to rip on myself.

    15 wrestlers was a good number. The redraft after Christmas was great. It really helped people strategize I think.

    Trades should also be stopped one week after Christmas. I could see loopholes where people that start falling out of the race just start giving away their team because they don't have to think about "next year".

    Using injury back-ups, I agree you have to post the person's name not just Harvard's back-up.

    The flex was fun, I liked that option.

    I would like to see the first round be a "keeper" league so we can keep one guy. Selfishly, I want to keep Ness but I think its a reward for those guys who stayed with it this year and incentivizes people to return the next year.

    I want to sign up for next year today.

    LoSt has to get his own computer or kick his mom out of his room although drunk posting is always encouraged.

    No changes, but I agree with GF that we should be able to keep one guy from this year's team.......frankly that makes it more realistic too.

    It was fun and I enjoyed it a lot. THanks for doing it for us.

    Keeper League I like. I heart Metcalf.

    I think you should keep the playoff system. However, you could change it up a bit.

    Let the conference week, be the last week of regular scoring. Top 4 guys go onto the championship the next week and offer up one or two wildcard spots based on the conference week alone. So you could be in last place, but if your boys show up at conferences, you can win a chance to play for the title. The last week at nationals could just be a straight up 5-6 man scramble for high score throughout the tourney.

    If you incorporate this, I would suggest a regular season & post season titles. This year, Trusty would be the regular season champ.....now playing in the playoffs.

    I think you have to incorporate more East Coast tournaments. We have a big time Midwest bias in our fantasy league. I don't think you count every tourney, but there are some solid tourney's you could use (Body Bar, Penn State Open....).

    I think the cash is a good idea. I feel like a donkey for not doing it this year.

    LoSt cannot use his mother as a fantasy consultant. Just not fair. And she is very unlucky.

    The league this year was a success. I really had a great time with it. I'd be careful not to change things up too much. If its not broke.....don't fix it.

    Keeper League & Wild Card Playoff Spots are my two main suggestions.

    In that thread that I mentioned, I pretty much said the Keeper League, and the Wild Cards for the playoffs are going to be a go for next year. We're using both your ides, so don't pat yourself on the back too hard.

    I'll be looking through the tournament results page on Intermat sometime in the offseason to find some good tournaments on both coasts. We're going to expand the number of scoring events, just not sure by how much. The All Star dual will count next year too.

    To try and do better by the draft, we're definitely going to start it earlier next season, so even if it does take a long time, it'll be done before the first week of competition.

    As I've said through out the season since its come up, the injury replacement rule is something that I really want to find a good solution for. So keep this stuff coming.

    Keeper League, dang it all my studs are seniors. I'm sure I can find someone to keep.

    You don't have to keep anyone its completely optional, in fact if you don't it'll benefit your draft spot especially if you want to make a go at Herbert or Nickerson.

    Keeper League, huh? Is TN actually going to wrestle next year? That was just bad luck...

    I can't think of any other specific changes now, but I'll be thinking.
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
