That's fine FL, since you have the wedding thing going on right now. It's not like you're going anywhere. Just try to send by the 15th.

Okay, so the draft is about to start. Here's what i propose:

The 5 guys who have not sent payment yet will have until the September 15th to do so (maybe a few days extra for FL, due to the problem he mentioned above.)

Those who haven't sent payment by that time are essentially out of the league, and those who HAVE sent their payments in (thank you to those guys for being prompt) will play for the remainder. We can make it winner-take-all, or whatever.

Sound good?

I posted it earlier in the thread:

info@discreetpicks.com


Btw, what's the story on the payouts? Are we going winner-take-all, are are we paying Top 2 or Top 3?

Let's get a list of votes on this and see where we stand...

7 payments have been received thus far (or 8, including my own):

I don't know if you know this but if they don't have a paypal account you can send them a payment request via paypal and they can pay using either a credit card or debit card without having a paypal account. This should clear all matters up.

Just go to the league page and click on "Live Scoring".

Also, the head-to-head schedule is viewable by rolling over the "Other" tab.

Figured it out. The defense scoring here is a little wonky, but overall looks fun. Honestly though, the SF DEF got -2 points after beating the shit out of the Saints? They got me 15 in Yahoo, and 10 in ESPN leagues.

RG3, Demaryius Thomas, Alfred Morris, Garcon (if he's alive), and Peyton all look like solid plays.

Default Sorry Box,
I was also surprised there are no points awarded for two point conversions. McGahee caught one from Manning for no points.

I'm curious about this. In one of my PPR leagues he got the 2 points for the score, but not the catch (or yards).

You guys are the points experts; i've always played roto.

Btw, still waiting on payment from you four guys. Week One is already in the books; let's not drag it out any longer. I'm already sorry i agreed to be treasurer. I shouldn't have to keep reminding you guys...

Scoring is different in every league. The commissioner has a choice to accept the default settings at the site you're using or customize them to his own desires. For our league, if you want to see how the scoring is done, go to the Other tab and the click League Rules Summary. It's all there.

I think the commissioner still has the ability to change the rules if he wants to, even after the season starts. At least he would on CBS or Yahoo. Not sure I think he should, though.

What happened to Showdough and Ilovewins.They are not even listed in the schedules or standings but Ilovewins is still picking up and dropping players. This makes no sense at all to me.

Floyd I noticed that also my team had the most or 2 nd most points in the league, but not in scoring last week or this week also. The schedule never mentions my team. I think the commish made an honest mistake. He scheduled for 10 teams, but then added 2 but never put us in the system!

DC please send me an email.
