  1. 1 spot left, drafting this weekend
  2. Filling nicely, 7 openings remain in 16 team league
  3. Tired of re-draft and offense only leagues, or leagues where if you don't get a top RB you're out before October? Enjoy watching D play as much as O? Want to be in a league where everyone has a shot at the Bowl. With this scoring setup, it's anybody's game and wicked exciting. This new league is based after another MFL league I currently commish where defense is a key component. Scoring is also balanced here such that if you have the best O, you won't win the Super Bowl without at least a good D as "defense wins Super Bowls" and this league is no exception! I am still tweaking the scoring ever so slightly to balance the model a bit more (will be done before the draft), but basically here's the top 30 breakdown based on the scoring using last years stats: Top 30 scoring placements by position: 3QBs, 6 RBs, 9 WRs, (18 offense) 3 DEs, 6 LBs, 3 CBs (12 defense) Starting O lineup (6) is: QB, RB, 2xWR, TE, 1 O-flex (RB-WR-TE) Starting D lineup (9) is: 2 DL, 3LB, 2 CB, 2 D-flex (DL-CB) This reduces LB impact but still allows LBs to play big role as it should be. Kicker -1 So, starting rosters are 40% O, 60% D, but O outscores D roughly 60-40. With more starting D players than O, but O still scoring higher PP, this model finds a good balance if you like defense intensive leagues. You get the gist. Here are the bylaws https://www67.myfant..._1528757500.pdf Here is the league link (MFL League ID 53135) so you can see scoring ratios and other bylaws/settings: http://www67.myfanta...18/home/53135#0 I want my league owners to all enjoy themselves and be able to play in a harassment free zone. We can still rib each other (in a good nature), have fun, chat about all things NFL or otherwise, meet some new people and just enjoy some FFL in our down time. We all have wives, jobs, kids and other crap to contend with every day so we don't need any extra drama from difficult or rude owners here in our spare time so leave that at the door. I am a very fair commissioner, and I believe that while I created the league and the general concepts are laid out, the league is run by the Owners and I just manage it as Commish for the most part. If a bunch of owners want a change, we change (unless it undermines the league concept itself). However, most changes need to be done between seasons not during as everyone bases their strategy on the settings as they existed when you drafted. Every league has room for improvement during the off season and that's when you discuss new changes for the next year, not mid year unless it's critical. I also do lots of polls to ensure everyone has a chance for input when needed. If that sounds like a league you want to play in, below is some other info you will want to know: Cost is $60 per owner (we use League Safe). Top 8 teams make the playoffs each year starting in week 15 (1-8, 2-7,3-6,4-5) Pay outs are: I like to spread the wealth in my leagues so everyone feels they have a shot: Super Bowl Winner - $300, Super Bowl Loser - $100, team with most total points (O+D) $125, Conference Championship losers $60 each, League Offense and Defense MVP's (most points by O player) $60 each, Player of the Game (for non-playoff teams only up to week 15) most points by one player in a game all season $55. The league is NFL based so all teams must have an NFL, CFL or college team name, no exceptions. First come first serve. We use only MFL and email to communicate. I hope to run the draft as soon as we fill up. if you have any questions, feel free to post here or send an email to: rawluk2010@hotmail.com . if you want in, shoot me an email, and just tell me a bit about yourself so I know something about you. Cheers. Kent
  4. We are now going with an email draft, we have added one O flex, and one D superflex. Draft is just over two weeks away. One spot left!
  5. League filling up nicely, draft day coming soon! Only 3 spots left.
  6. Can't survive between Super Bowl and fall kickoff? We can't either. A new league launched last week, now almost half full. This is a full new league for older guys who want to have some fun, are serious, but not too serious. You don't actually have to be old to join (and we are looking for committed/active owners) but you do need to have a mellower, older guys', perspective on life. We aren't going to get rich playing MFL, nobody is going broke either, and we all have wives, kids, and bosses who keep us busy most of the time. So, this is our down time and we just want to have some fun, want to win, but we aren't going to be too crazy about things. Also, rude or offensive owners, whiners and sore losers, will not be tolerated. The league has 6 starters on offense: 1QB, 2 RB, 2WR, 1TE, K, defense is: 2 DL/DE, 2 LB, 2 CB/S. There is 1 IR and 2 practice squad spots. The scoring is deep as well and brings balance to things. Of note, in most other leagues, RBs are the star, in this league, a franchise QB is the most important role, RBs and WRs are about equal. Defensive roles, generally scoring slightly lower than offense (about 25%) but still significant, are not to be overlooked! LBs, DEs and CBs are all somewhat equal in scoring. Playoffs are top 6 (division winners get top 4 seeds, plus 2 wildcards), top 2 division winners get a first round bye. Payouts are $250 for super bowl winner, $150 for super bowl loser, $80 for the conference losers. We use league safe for funds. The only fees are for signup ($40) , no other transaction fees, unlimited waiver and roster changes and trades. Live draft is currently scheduled for April 30th after the NFL draft weekend. No deposit currently required for 2nd year (subject to all new owners vote coming up). My Fantasy Football League ID is 31158 (http://home.myfantasyleague.com/) , or called "League for Old Timers", year "2018". Please email me: rawluk2010@hotmail.com with questions or for an invite if this sounds like your type of league. Kent League Commish P.S. FYI, the MFL website will be going offline for annual maintenance this friday for 5 days or so. Get signed up/in before that to get yourself up to speed if you want. otherwise it may take a bit
