BTW, are we coming up with team names, or we just going with our Cafe names?


I've been meaning to bring this up actually. An idea I had/shamelessly stole to make the league a little more immersive was to have NFL style team names, i.e. hometown/state/country followed by a nickname.

A nice little touch that makes the league look that little bit more legit. What does everyone think?


We still have 4 owners who didn't do this. It would be nice to have everyone on board with this! ;-D

It means placeholder - if a league's forum doesn't have any new posts for a while it gets bumped down to the bottom of the menu with all the dead leagues.

2 Questions

1) Can we expand roster limits on Fleaflicker right now? It is in the constitution that the roster will expand this year. Makes sense to do it now IMO.

2) There was a suggestion to schedule the draft early (like right after the NFL draft) to cement this league's place as a Cafe expert dynasty. Is that still the plan? NFL Draft is in 4 weeks, so we should probably get a head count out of the way.

Hey guys, sorry I've been a bit absent recently. Started a new job and have been working crazy hours. Settling down now though and I have the day off today, so I'll be getting the ball rolling on as much as possible. Will extend the rosters now. We also have a few things to vote on (including draft scheduling) so polls will be forthcoming also.

Trying to get through as much as possible today. Set up a few polls that require you immediate attention.

I would also like to bring up defensive scoring. I think I under estimated how high it would be. Obviously, changing scoring now is a tricky subject. I would only propose we increase fantasy points lost per game point conceded, keeping shutouts, turnovers and scores the same.

Is there going to be a waiver and/or FA period between the draft and the start of the season?
