If you want parity you're not playing the game as it's meant to be played. And if you're one of those owners who is crying out for parity then you're obviously in need of an influx of knowledge and talent.


That's why knapp joins yahoo public leagues. ;-7

Seriously, knapp is right. Why would I want someones else's keepers? Let me build/draft my own team. If my team kicks everyone's butt, I can only pat myself on the back. With this league you will be thinking, glad I team six.

You guys are missing the point, it's like playing pool sometimes playing straight up solids/stripes gets old sometimes I like to play nine ball sometimes I like to add a third buddy and cutthroat, it's all pool. This is just a different way of playing the same old game. :-?

Really? So you only play Dynasty or Keeper leagues? BORING! Thats my opinion. ;-)

I like parity in some of my leagues. What fun is it to be in 3 or 4 or more leagues have them all be exactly the same? I guess I'm in need of an "influx of knowledge and talent" maybe I'm having too much fun and need to dull it down a bit. :-b

When you have a competitive league, having everyone close in the standings is good. That creates excitment. I just don't see the fun in, "OK you got team three's keepers, now good luck." I like to succeed on my own, or even "suck" on my own. I don't want to ride someone else's coattails. Boy I'm glad you drafted so and so last year. Doesn't sound fun to me at all.

It's an interesting idea, but it seems that, like spodog said, it is totally random, so why not just do a simple redraft?

It seems to me that the main thing this does is help out people who don't know what they are doing. The odds of you getting the team that you molded in the prior year are fairly slim, so if you are a fantasy retard, you won't get punished for it like you would in a dynasty or keeper. If you are really good and manage to get LT and SA on one team, you won't reap the benefits because you most likely won't get that team back next year. I don't really understand why an experienced FFer would want to do this - except if they weren't challenged enough by their other leagues.

I didn't feel challenged by the leagues I was playing a couple years ago, so I joined a few dynasties here at the Cafe. Now I wish I had time to beat up on some yahoo public leagues :-b :-D ;-D
