  1. Doppelganger filled....only two spots left in Bluechip 
  2. three places are left in the auction salary cap league. Rule 12 o) from the Common Rule Book details how those teams will be determined o) In our Auction Dynasty Salary Cap/Contract leagues, a Replacement Owners Draft is not utilised due to the added complexity of managing players with contracts. When multiple teams are abandoned, new owners will be randomly assigned a team draft position. The owner that draws the first slot, they get the first choice of the available teams, the owner in the second slot get the second choice of available teams and so on until all teams are assigned. When a replacement owner takes over an orphaned team, they will have the ability to apply a contract amnesty from three available options. Please refer to the individual league rules for complete details. 18) Replacement Owners - Contract Amnesty When a replacement owner takes over an orphaned team, they will have the option of applying a contract amnesty. Within 72 hours of joining the league, new owners will have to decide between three options (if no selection is made, option A is chosen by default): Option a) Retain roster and team entirely as is. Option b) Retain roster but void up to 3 contracts meaning the player is dropped and becomes a free agent without salary cap penalty. If a previous owner had made transactions that resulted in salary cap penalties, all salary cap penalties remain. The new owner can use any of their allotted 3 cuts to have a previous salary cap penalty removed. Option c) Drop all players from the roster, voiding all contracts and start over in the next free agent auction, retaining only draft picks. In such a scenario, all salary cap penalties from all previous transactions are removed.

  9. This is the 2nd of 2 dynasty leagues that Paragon Fantasy Football is starting up in 2011. For those not familiar with Paragon, we are a set of leagues run not for profit, with 100% payout (less MFL hosting), all money held by leaguesafe (of course! - so no fraud), higher stakes leagues. We've got a great group of players, and only 6 spots open for this league. This is arguably our most ambitious league yet... a real challenge for players looking to take their game to the next level. This is a super deep league of 16 teams, so identifying talent early has never been more important. There are lots of great enhancements over a more simple league, so it's worth a thorough read of these summarized rules, then a read of our detailed rules on the Paragon website. Like anything... with "good" complexity comes greater enjoyment as there are more decisions and opportunities that result. Once you've tasted "full flavor" leagues, it's hard to go back to those simple, 12-14 team dynasty leagues that always seem to be searching for replacement players on these boards. SUMMARY: * 16 teams, individually named by each owner, organized into four divisions of four teams. * 80 man rosters, 20 man taxi squad, IR, etc. * 40 starters, balanced between offensive positions and defense for realism. Exciting new positions like Coach and Punter add additional depth and strategic complexity. * The proven, balanced Paragon PPR scoring system. * Initial creation of teams combines best elements of auction and draft: o Auction 1 - $1000 budget for ebay-like acquisition of 20 offensive players. o Auction 2 - $1000 budget for ebay-like acquisition of 20 defensive players. o Draft - 40 round 3rd round reversal serpentine draft to acquire the remaining players for the roster. o Annual rookie-only draft occurring soon after the NFL draft (initial draft 20 rounds, subsequent 8 rounds). * Annual off season supplemental draft and blind bidding waivers. * Sign players off opposing franchises’ practice squads for a price. * No Salary Caps or contracts. * Option to acquire college players for a significant price. Once you acquire any player you have the option to keep him for his entire NFL career. * In order to allow for 16 teams yet 80 players and a slightly enhanced level of starters, there are two copies of each NFL player in the league although you can only own one copy of the player at any time. This adds many extra trading opportunities, strategy around drafts and an increased chance of rostering your favorite players. * Large prize pools with 100% payouts less MFL league fees of $70/yr approx. * Holdover of 25% of prize money years 1-4 in order to have double prizes (Super Pool Concept) every 5 years. * Start this league with confidence that it will be around for many years to come. * This league combines some of the most popular and “best” elements of the proven Paragon leagues, into a league that is extra deep and rewards the player that believes they can identify quality talent “before” it becomes well known to the rest of the fantasy world. 10 places in this league are filled, 6 remaining. "Go Deep" Paragon Website page/Detailed Rules 2011 MFL league site To join this league, first read these specific rules, then the common rules, on the Paragon Fantasy Football website. Then please use the contact us form on the site, and we will then send you a leaguesafe invoice. Upon full payment, the franchise is yours and we will send you login information. If you want to learn more about our leagues, and what players say about us (I guarantee you'll recognise some names if you spend time on these boards), visit our testimonials first. This is going to be an outstanding league. I'm sure many will read the above and wonder if it's too "unique" or "different". We can assure you the league will fill. We've filled 10 out of 16 spots in the last week alone. This league is by design different from the "plain vanilla" leagues you see dotting these forums. The combination of auction and draft, in particular, we think is an innovation that is a long-time coming in MFL sites. Two players makes does not make a league weird at all. Instead, it creates better trading opportunities, as no team can absolutely block access to a player, and so you can play teams off each other in trading. It's just extremely fun, and we know you'll love it. We hope we will have the chance to play with you. Best Regards, Brian and Chris Co-Commissioners and Owners In Every Paragon League

  11. If your a die-hard fantasy football player then this could be the league for you. We (Paragon Fantasy Football) are running a 16 team annual league with an auction/salary cap used to select and maintain your players over the course of the season. It's a IDP/PPR league and has 32 man rosters (16 starters/16 bench spots). This league is an ideal launching point if you wanted to try IDP auctions for the first time. Many of our players use this as a starting point before trying our dynasty leagues. As you will see from the below links and info, all monies are held at leaguesafe.com. If you are interested in following up on this league, please email Chris & Brian at commissioner@paragonfantasyfootball.com We have 14 teams filled for this league and are looking for 2 more. The Auction will start on 2nd Aug 3:00pm ET. Here is a copy of the link to the league - http://www4.myfantasyleague.com/2010/home/30229 This is a link to all of the league rules - http://www.paragonfantasyfootball.com/the-annual-auction---est-2009.html Lastly, this is a link to our website which will give you a great idea what we are about - http://www.paragonfantasyfootball.com/ Paragon Fantasy Football is a "not for profit" set of leagues with 100% payout after $70 myfantasyleague.com fees with all money held by Leaguesafe.com so no chance of fraud. Our leagues designed not to be 1-3 years and then done. We have five leagues in 2010 including this one. It's going to be an intense, fun league, and I'd suggest that if you read through the rules, testimonials from fellow players, many of which are already signed up in this new league, you'll realize this is exactly the kind of league that can become your "premier" league year in and year out... worthy of the time you invest in this sport. Why play in 4-5 $50 leagues when you can invest in a $200 league with big prize pools and where all the owners have enough skin in the game to care a lot about their teams and sticking around for the long-haul? Where winning it yields thousands in prize money, not just the leftovers after league fee and a pat on the back. People get invested emotionally in Paragon leagues, which is why we have an incredibly high retention of owners and the pretty universal feeling among people that have played in other leagues that this isn't soulless corporate fantasy football, nor is it the near-free leagues started by high-school students that crash and burn with alarming frequency... but rather, your fantasy home. Come find out why this claim isn't just hype. SUMMARY: * 16 team annual league * Live Auction used to select players run on the MFL league wesbite * $1000 salary cap in effect for the whole season * 32 man rosters (16 starters/16 bench spots) * The proven, balanced Paragon PPR scoring system. * Unique 5 team playoff format is the fairest playoff structure we have found and is modelled on international Rugby playoffs. * Auction to commence on 2nd Aug 3:00 pm ET * Auction is won when highest bidder holds the bid for 12 hours. * $200 entry fee * Wonderful grounding in Paragon leagues * This is a perpetual league which will run year after year as an annual league * As a Paragon league player you will get first shot at any future orphaned teams and entry into new 2011 leagues Best Regards, Brian Hatch & Chris Kuszelyk Co-Commissioners and Players commissioner@paragonfantasyfootball.com
