So I have stepped up as the commissioner of this league and Trell has left up pretty much all the rules and guidelines up to me. I have shared my ideas for the league with Trell and he seems to be pretty for them, so here they are -
The Fantasy Draft -
I'm going to try to keep this fairly simple. The draft order will be chosen at random (I'll probably use 2k12 select it for me) and it will be a snake draft which means if you pick last in one round, you pick first in the next round. We should all be familiar with this. Something different than the other league is that there will be NO trading during the fantasy draft. I believe it causes too much confusion and people get taken advantage of; I'm going to try to keep this as fair as possible. There will be 12 rounds, and a 15 player roster limit. So that means after the draft, you are free to add any undrafted player as you would like.
After the draft -
As previously mentioned, there will be roster space left over from after the draft. Everyone will have the chance to add 3 extra players to their roster is so desired. However, unlike during the fantasy draft, trades will be allowed now. This time period will last for an entire week so that GMs will have time to really plan out their team.
The Season -
The season is where I think it may start getting a little different; I'm not really sure how fantasy leagues usually work out with this. However, my proposal is to have every team face off against each other. So that means, if there are 25 teams, there will be a 24 game season, etc. To determine the results of each game, there will be a total of three votes. The votes will be mine, whoever is the co-commissioner, and then the GM vote. For the votes of the two comissioners, we will both write a post as to how we believe the game would have been played out, point out the strengths and weaknesses in the teams and how they might have been exploited, etc. The voting process will last a week, as it will probably take some time to vote on all the games.
Throughout the season, teams will still be allowed to make trades, with a trade deadline that passes at the halfway point of the season. GMs are encouraged to read the feedback given in each game to help them improve their team. I should have said this earlier, but EVERY TRADE MUST BE APPROVED BY ME.[/U] Again, I'm trying to keep things fair and I don't want any of the new guys to be taken advantage of. Just tell me why each team is making the trade and if it seems even remotely reasonable I will approve it. I doubt I'll have to reject any trades.
After all the games are finished, the top 4 teams will then face off against each other. 1 will play 4, and 2 will play 3, and the winners play against each other. The winner of this will be the season champion and gets to tell all his friends about how cool he is.
After a few months have passed, there will be another draft with all the prospects. I imagine that this will go on for a while, and by the time we get to this point, it could be the next all star weekend. All of the players picked in 2012 will then be available. There will be no lottery. If you were the worst team in Fantasy, you get the top pick. Anthony Davis, Thomas Robinson, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, etc, will all be available. Choose wisely.
Teams will be able to trade players right after the draft and then things will pick up where they left off.
So, any feedback would be appreciated. I'm looking for anyone to be the co-commissioner, so if you're interested, hit me up. Again, feedback greatly appreciated.
