We may have a problem with week one results. MFL is not a free site. The reason the Thursday games have not been tabulated is that we've not yet paid for the league,  

 

When the league was founded in season one, it was supposed to be two conferences of fourteen.... twenty-eight teams. With two drafts and two copies of each player, a smaller scale version of the IBL which I was the founder and named and was the original commish once upon a time. We're at MFL because that site can sponsor a league that size and I ate the league fee in year one to make it happen.

 

But then the second conference fell through and we were just a regular 14 team league and I'd thought we could move to yahoo to avoid paying a league fee as MFL wasn't necessary anymore, and we did for one season: the year nzoner's Toga! Toga! won was played at Yahoo. But people liked MFL better, and I understand why, it is a better site.

 

So it's always been a weird arrangement. I'd promised a free league, and I am willing to move it to yahoo to keep it free, but there's always been a coalition of the willing that would contribute towards the league fee to keep it at MFL. Ever since I paid in year one, I've been wanting to move. But James (iam90sbaby) heads that up, he's the one who has mostly footed the bill with people chipping in to help. I recall MTskibum especially gave him a good chuck of cash last year.

 

So, if you pay early, you get $20 off, then there's a window for $10 off. And those windows closed this year. James has been slow to foot the bill, then we'd ask folks to chip in to help him cover the expense. James is great and we've leaned on his generosity a lot. 

 

Well, when the Thursday games results didn't post, I thought "that's a curious thing, they're usually up.".Then about 36 hours ago it struck me as to why:.. that we'd not yet paid for 2018. So I'd sent an urgent email to James that we'd not paid and then again last night. So now we're seven hours from kickoff and don't have the site paid as of yet.

 

I may have to tabulate week one results by hand like we did back in the day and then over the course of next week move the league over to yahoo if something doesn't happen.

 

So, if the week one results don't post, it's because we're slacking on coughing up money to MFL.

I think I have to set skibum up as commissioner and then folks that want to chip in can send him some money.

 

Edit, I set up skibum with commish access. James also has it of course, but oddly, so does Rockford.

IF these week one results don't get processed, I'm going to have to manually enter all the data. Fortunately, the IBL still uses my scoring system, especially defensive scoring, so I don't have to do calculations.

 

Hopefully it doesn't come to that.

Done.

 

90 dollars, even with the 20 dollars off it is 70. Probably should switch to yahoo next year.

Thanks. Folks that want to help out MTSkibum with associated fee, please contact him. The league is free but if you want to help shoulder some of the cost, please do.

 

Now I hold my breathe in anticipation that the results of all the games get updated as well when the MNF game results get posted or else I have a lot of extra work to do.

I've submitted a request to customer support to request help in getting our week one results in. I've got a feeling it'll work. Customer support at MFL is really good, or at least it use to be, I've not needed to contact them in forever.

That worked well and all is right in the world.
