Thread: 2008/2009 TWT Fantasy League Rules (Rough Draft)

  1. #1

    Default 2008/2009 TWT Fantasy League Rules (Rough Draft)

    1. 14 teams in the league. 15 wrestlers per team. You'll start 11 wrestlers per week, one guy at each weight from 125-285 and then a "flex" guy from any weight you choose who will be eligible to score points at whatever weight he wrestles.

    As of right now returning owners will have the opportunity to keep one of their guys from last year. If they do this they'll basically sacrifice their first round pick as well as draft position. In the first round, all the non-keepers will pick. Then I'll distribute the kept guys to those who are keeping. Then I'll have the non-keepers pick again, only then will the keepers get to pick.

    If that makes some semblance of sense.

    2. There isn't going to be head to head during the regular season. The standings will go strictly by total points scored.

    The regular season will run up through Conferences. After Conferences the 4 highest scoring teams will advance to the finals during NCAA's, and we're also going to take two wild cards this year.

    These wild cards will be the two highest scoring teams during Conference week that wouldn't already be going to the next round anyway. Come NCAA's I'll wipe the scores clean and it'll be a 6 way scramble for the championship.

    3. 3 points for a decision, 4 for a major, 5 for a tech, and 6 for a pin. This season we'll be doing away with the bonus for beating a #1 guy as it was too hard to keep track of.

    4. All team dual meets will count as scoring events, as will the main event of the All Star meet. The Kauffman Brand, Vegas, Reno, Midlands, and Scuffle tournaments will return this year as scoring events.

    This year we'll be adding the Penn State Open, the Michigan State Open, the Body Bar Invitational, the PSAC's, the NC State Open, the Navy Classic, and Best of the West tournaments.

    5. As a method of dealing with the "third place guy scores more than the champ" problem that we had with some tournaments last year, for the five returning tournaments the 1st, and 2nd place finishers will get 10 and 5 bonus points respectively.

    6. Speaking of bonus points, during conference week you'll get 16 bonus points for a conference champion, and 12 for a runner up. During NCAA's your wrestler's placement points will count as bonus.

    7. Trades are permitted pending my approval (I don't think I said no to any last year), free agency however isn't. To deal with the problem we faced last year, you'll be able to replace one of your starters with his "back up" if and only if that back up isn't already on someone else's team.

    The Supplemental draft we had last year will return as well. For those that don't know what that basically is is during the break in competition during the second and third week of December we'll have a three round optional draft where you can get rid of guys who are out for the year or just haven't performed. The team with the lowest score in the league will get the first pick in the supplemental.

    8. We also may bring back some semblance of a money option. Only two people paid last year, so I'm still not positive that we'll definitely do this.

    Everyone interested in the league, (except for Lost)both returnees and possible new people are more than welcome to tell me what they think of these as they sit right now.

    I don't think I could have written better bylaws (not that i didn't have a say already!).

    I can't wait for this shit.

    and I will be keeping Ness...

    my only thought would be that the "reward" for coming back is the keeper guy which motivates people to keep playing from one year to the next...i think its almost a penalty to not redraw for round two then.

    other than that, I have no complaints.

    My idea to do the "Keeper" option like this came about because thats really the only way I see to counteract the disadvantage that new people, or people who don't keep guys will face.

    They'll have no shot at elite wrestlers like Metcalf, Ness, Escobedo, and Rosholt (4 guys who have already been laid "claim" to) so as a result they'll get draft position.

    It'll be up to you come draft time if you think you can get your guy, risk him being in the pool if you don't then keep him.

    Things will get really interesting when I decide whether or not to make people declare whether or not they're keeping before or after I come with the draft order.

    So let me get this straight:
    First round, non-keepers pick, keepers get their guy.
    Second round, non-keepers get the first x number of draft spots, then keepers get the last y number of draft spots. Then the draft proceeds as usual, snake order.

    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    Thats the idea as of right now explained in a much clearer fashion than my several attempts at doing so.
