2016 CCOM Fantasy Football League

VulchorVulchor FloridaPosts: 4,846 ✭✭✭✭

Ok boys, keeping the tradition going---but going to ask some questions for possible changes.  . Looking forward to another good season. Rules will remain a standard fantasy ESPN Live Draft league.  Draft will be a weeknight after 8pm et.  Here is where I want to gauge interest. 

For the last 3 years we have done a 12 Team league with $25 buy in.  I held the money in paypal and paid at the end of the season in Cigar.com gift cards.  LeagueTotal Prize Pool: 300 Champion,  110Second(championship game loser),  70Third Place,  40Division Winners.

6 team playoff where the two highest ranked teams get one bye week, and then play the “wild card week” winners.

We could do a smaller or larger league, but I don't want to do much cheaper for the buy in.

THE OTHER OPTION....

Would be a buy in with cigars league.  I would think 40 dollars in premium sticks should be the buy in.  There is no requirement, but please be reasonable.  2 large Opus X's----fine.  4 Las Cavaleras's-----fine. Some Caldwell and EP Carillo  mixes----fine.  Couple of "high end" Gurkhas-----NOT FINE.  Mazo of RP Connecticuts---NOT FINE.  Sticks that retail at 8 bucks but you can get them for 4 on various deal sites----NOT FINE.  You get the idea I think. 

Payouts would be for 1st and 2nd place at the end.    5 people send to 1st, 3 people send to 2nd.

Lets kick this around and see what everyone wants-----IF YOU ARE IN FOR EITHER.....Please state that in your post here so we can see interest and I can get a list of who wants what.

    IN.  I vote for cigars at the end.  That is what we are all about
  • VulchorVulchor FloridaPosts: 4,846 ✭✭✭✭

    Updating

    -----last place does not pay

    ----So far cigars seem to be preferred, still some voting to see.  I suggested 40 dollar range, 5-10 sticks also suggested...but I think the 40 dollar amount seems good, still but we could change this

    ----So far people that are in:  Vulchor, Avengethis, Matkn293, RSherman

    -----------I will be PMing you guys info for the league


  • avengethisavengethis Sorry, I ate all your bacon!Posts: 5,638 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I can do $40 however that is so subjective, it could be 2 cigars or 5.  Where its easier to figure out a payout say 10 to first and 5 to second.  Either way I am good and will make it work.  Cigars is my choice though
    Team O'Donnell FTW!

    It is subjective....I agree.  I am HOPING I guess people are reasonable.  When it comes to just sticks though, its kind of the same to me though-----because I would rather get 2 Davidoffs for instance then get 10 Padilla Maximus.
  • avengethisavengethis Sorry, I ate all your bacon!Posts: 5,638 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Well I agree.  I like a 5 Premium stick buyin so you dont get those bargain bin sticks or the decent ones you get at a good price from cbid (DPG Blue).  Again I will go with whatever is decided.
    Team O'Donnell FTW!

    Ok, I'll bite. I'm in. I prefer ceegars over cash. Once there is cash on the line, y'all are no longer friends.....   :D:D

    All invites sent thus far....we are about half full (course we could expand league also).  Looks like people prefer a cigar league...which is fine.  How do we want to do the buy in?  40 dollar value?  More?  Certain number of sticks?  Im with Avenge in the respect I just want it to be fair for everyone and in the same ball park.  Not some sending all Original Tat Monsters and others sending Diesels..........I know its about the fun, but it does help to make it a little more exciting as well as fair.
  • rsherman24rsherman24 Scranton, PAPosts: 5,392 ✭✭✭✭✭
    A premium ccom fiver.  Hard to put a price on it, or what classifies as premium.  Something like position 3 - x send to first place and x - 12 send to second place.
  • jgibvjgibv John G.Posts: 9,320 ✭✭✭✭✭
    In please.  

    No preference on prize since I'll probably end up towards the bottom of the standings LOL!

    * I have a new address as of 3/24/18 *

  • skydiverDskydiverD Chicagoland AreaPosts: 2,627 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I think you can just say 5 or 10 premium sticks, and specifically exclude the wannabe premiums like Gurkha, RP, etc.  we did this in the pickem league last year and it seemed to work well.

    6 of 10 spots filled folks-----4 more to go (or more if people decide)

    Looks like it will be a PREMIUM cigar league (agreed, no Gurkha, RP, discount blends, daily deal stuff, etc).  5 stick MINIMUM, with extras always looked upon favorably;)


  • VulchorVulchor FloridaPosts: 4,846 ✭✭✭✭

    Now I know there are AT LEAST 4 other guys in here who play fantasy football and want in on this.

    DirtDude---PM incoming to sign up.  VERY easy to learn, can even do mock drafts on ESPN and such.  Scoring is standard.....my wife did it a few years ago and had never even watched the game of football before LOL.   PM incoming to get your info and I will send the invite.  3 more needed.

  • skydiverDskydiverD Chicagoland AreaPosts: 2,627 ✭✭✭✭✭
    You will like it Randy.  Gives you a reason to watch a game you'd otherwise have no interest in.  You'll find yourself rooting for weird situations too.  LOL

    Cmon fellas....I know there is more interest out there in signing up.  I suppose you can ask around to others you know if they want to join-----surprised this is taking a little while to fill actually.

    American football, referred to as football in the United States and Canada, and also known as gridiron, is a sport played by two teams of eleven players on a rectangular field with goalposts at each end. The offense, the team with control of the oval-shaped football, attempts to advance down the field by running with or passing the ball, while the team without control of the ball, the defense, aims to stop their advance and take control of the ball for themselves.

    Just in case you folks didn't understand what @Vulchor was referring to, season is starting up soon, low buy in, do it
