Hey guys! in advance, thanks for your interest. A couple of things:
1.) I will cover the silly $30 for the "plus" league. What is most important to me is to build a highly competitive and challenging league, that will hopefully last for seasons to come, and develop a report that will last for seasons to come, and perhaps translate to other sports(I am a fantasy basketballer hardcore, and was first introduced to the cafe from this passion).
2.) I really enjoy fantasy sports. And accordingly, I spend a good amount of time maintaining my teams and I take pride in my competitveness with regard to the fantasy sports that I partake in. I am looking for people who stand upon similar ground.
3.) This does kind of suck, but I don't think that it will practical to get a league set up with league safe before the middle of next week. Also, the draft for this league will have to be between Monday and Thursday, in the evening (the hours will be flexible). I want to screen the entrants, so that we don't have inattentive managers, and secure the finances, so that there are no issues with payouts for the winners. I am thinking that wed or thurs evening, optimistically, would suffice. I know I'm late on this, and drafting after the first week is not ideal (I just don't want to use my last yahoo team on a crappy pub, or some other bs league).
4.) speaking of payouts, should we get a minimum of 12, I figure 2000, 750(2nd), and 250 (3rd). No one will be allowed to join untill they pay the league fees. Ideally, I would like a larger league; in such an instance, the payout schedule would be similar in scale.
5.) Given the fact that this league will miss all of week one, I will do everything in my power to recruit, verify, and obtain competent, attentive, and honest, league members in time for the draft. Everything in terms of paying will be tentative, until we know that we have at least 12 devoted manager who all agree to pay (leaguesafe will ensure that there is no foul-play).
OK...so now to the league settings. I have chosen what I think makes for the most interesting football metrics...

This strengthens defensive value a good bit for IDP, but to me that is the way that the game is played.
If you are interested in being a part of this league please email me at email@example.com. if you would like any other information from me, or a resume of previous league-mates please let me know. Additionally, being I am late on forming this league, if anyone has a league that is forming soon with IDP (even if they aren't weighted more heavily), or with 2 QBs that is setup for $100 or more on yahoo, please let me know. I hope that there will be a good response to this league, and that we can build a competitive base for seasons to come.
