FANTASY FOOTBALL is one week away!!! ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿˆ

in #fantasyfootball โ€ข 3 years ago

Link to previous announcement.

Right now we have 7 of 12 players signed up. I know @kitzchris will be playing; @kryptocek and @pittsburghhodlr should be signing up soon too.

So that leaves 2 places!!!

Just comment below if you want to play.

The skinny of it is that it's a 5 SBD buy-in, which goes right to the prize pool. And then the prize pool increases with upvotes for league content.

Pay your dues!!!

I'm flexible about when you send over the 5 SBD, but to protect everyone and the integrity of the contest, we do need to have it before drafting.

I promise I'm not scamming and running off with the pot. (I think the witnesses could do some sort of black magic to stop me if I tried that anyways.)

Draft

Speaking of the draft, the draft order will be randomly determined by Yahoo!

Once all 12 people register (or maybe as it gets closer to draft day? I'm not sure), Yahoo! spits out a draft order. There's the option to manually set your own order. I just want to officially state that we'll use whatever order the Yahoo! software gives us.

I won't touch it, is basically what I'm saying. Whatever order they give us will be the one we use.

Questions

If you have any questions or anything, fire away!!!

The draft is in one week: Thursday, August 23rd at 6pm EST

So this post is also serving as a reminder for everyone already signed up.

Once we get all the managers finalized, we'll all know our draft position and can start eyeing players and the shenanigans will begin!

Just found this post, I was looking for the steemit fantasy football league post for a few days now. Both years I made the playoffs, should have won last year but cam newton only scored 9 points in semi final.

So sign me up.

& Resteemed.

awesome bola!!

I do think there's 1 more spot available.. although I'm trying to make sense of who all has signed up and who is sitting on a link and hasn't registered yet etc

Want to just be sure I don't undercut someone who already said they want to play.

so let me sort it out, and then I'll toss you the link!

hmm actually I just got a mailer-daemon returned email.. didn't send.

Should I change it from .ca to .com? or just email me at [email protected]

Gonna send you email when I'm home! Not hooked up to my Yahoo acct on phone .. sorry for delay!

Just emailed you.

@bola! I made you a very generous trade offer :p

check it out, you should see it if you open up your roster

Sweet, just replied!

sent email, bola!!

you'll be the 12th and final contestant.. that's the lucky one!

Dude this is a fun idea. I like but dont know NFL well enough tho... Cool idea tho, community gets built through stuff like this.

thanks!! ya it seems fun and good. Thanks for your support!!

Will send it over in the next day here! Will grab some steem from @josefinemk hopefully she can spot me a few!

kryptoooo, you got those SBDs??

remember, draft Thursday! 6pm EST (3pm pacific, 10pm UTC)

Sorry just on holiday but will send the 5 steem over this week! I'll be ready for the draft!

cool.. good luck in the draft!

Teams not looking too bad just wonโ€™t that damn season to start!

ya I know!!! it sucks to have to wait, it's like sheeesh, wanna see how they do lol

yaa if you ask nice hopefully she will ๐Ÿ˜›

Hopefully everything will get sorted out before the draft. Iโ€™m really excited. Iโ€™ve already tried mock draft and itโ€™s fun. Perhaps my Resteem will help get at least one player.

ya.. it'll DEFINITELY get sorted out. Even as a worst case we'd just roll with 10 players. But that's really unlikely.. between the rest of the steemosphere, and then reaching for a friend of somebody who wants to play or even open it to a random Yahoo! account just to get the 12th team lol. It'll definitely happen one way or another. Just hopefully we get all Steem people and don't have to take muggles.

thanks for resteeming!!

Dude I will be sending the 5SBD to you.
I have something really important on 23rd. @nathanmars is coming to Poland and I would be joinig him for stuff that we need to do here. Any idea about somebody who can play in my stead?

oh..

I think you actually haven't signed up yet?

Sorry, trying to make sense of who is who in the league and remember who exactly has signed up. It's easy to get confused haha.

So ya, I guess just fill me in on what you mean here. If you can't play, you def don't need to send the SBD.

Cool.. no worries either way.

If you need to pullout of the league, you can just remove your team (or let me know and I'll remove it). It's too bad you won't be able to play, but it won't harm the league at all, it's plenty of warning and enough time to find a replacement.

If you're saying you DO want to keep your team but just need someone to DRAFT for you .. basically, I think you'd need to give them access to your Yahoo! account. So it would need to be someone you trust personally like that.

Just lmk and we'll straighten it out.

Pumped dude! Yea I'm not sure when yahoo randomizes the draft order, but if we'd know a little in advance it'd be nice to kinda look at who to target.

yaaa.. thinking about it more, I think maybe they do the order as they open the draft room? So if that were the case you'd have plenty of time in terms of like.. 45 minutes, like enough to review your options. but not to stew on it for a few days.

I'll fish around for if there are any options to randomize the order ahead of time or anything.

I basically just want it to be clear that it was truly random lol so if I get a good pick it doesn't look fishy :p

I have a feeling you'll randomize it and still get a good pick ๐Ÿ˜‚ that happened to me and everyone gave me shit

lolll ya ,, I'm trying to think what position I'd even want.

I think I don't want to be too low, basically. but 5 or 6 seems better than 1 to me.

I know what you mean. It'd be awesome to end up with Bell or Gurley, but there's just so many picks in between. I'd still rather be first than last though for sure. It's a fantasy draft though, I'm gonna be thrilled with whatever pick ๐Ÿ˜‚

yup! and ya, 12th is total worst imo. I don't love being on the end of the snake, but obv you take 1 over 12 lol.

I don't want to say too much about what I think of various players baha, but ya.

Haha for sure.

๐Ÿ˜‚ Totally understand. Don't wanna give away the strategy!

yup yup! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Had no idea you were so into football lmao

I couldn't bring myself to drop $20 because I get last every time smh

bahaaa

I'm more into fantasy and the occasional gamboooling on it .. but over the years I guess it's evolved to being legit into football lol

only 5 SBD if you wanna play wa-phil!!!

(don't tho.. don'tttttt, you should be studying.. but I'd be remiss not to ask.. you'd be a legend in the league)

Lmao 5 sbd isnโ€™t a bad buy in and it would be hella fun ๐Ÿ˜ณ

I should probably study tho ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ Iโ€™ll play next year tho!

yaaaa next year when you're a seasoned pro student !!

Just Sendd Ittt!!

wait what? you're already signed up right? I'm confused by this lol

Its a meme.

gotcha gotcha lol .. I figured prob something like that where I just wasn't hip enough :p

but wanted to make sure you didn't need the link or something :p

Nah, I should have some ETH purchased and in my account through coinbase in 3 more days. I'll purchase some steem and seend you 5.

sweet, thanks!!

how's the SBD hunt going??

remember, draft Thursday! 6pm EST (3pm pacific)

I have it in my wallet, just need to convert it.

cool, think you'll have it soon?

I am starting a league too if you wish to join. It's free and I am giving away steem prizes! Check it out: https://steemit.com/nfl/@mawit07/nfl-fantasy-league-signup

thanks a bunch for the invite! I'll check it out..

I already have 2 leagues and other shenanigans.. so I'm inclined to say I don't need anything else on my plate :p and would rather let someone else in.. if you need an extra person or something down the stretch, give me a shout, and I might jump in

hey mawit!! Interested in our league this year?? Info here: https://steemit.com/football/@full-measure/fantasy-football

We're expecting that making a prize pool out of steem posting isn't so viable this year, so bumping it to a $20 buyin.

I got hit by a football when I was young and I've lived a fantasy ever since.

I read all above but still do not have a clue what to do. If it was fantasy ping pong I may have a chance.
Do I have to know something about football?

hahaaa.. you could probably get by on guts and determination, but ya knowing some things about football usually helps!!!

I'm glad you survived getting hit! lol

Questions: Does the winner receive the value of steem its currently at now. Or do we receive lets say 12 teams 5 steem a piece 60 steem tokens at the end?

So a couple things..

The buyin is actually in SBD (Steem Backed Dollars) which is a different thing than STEEM. Once you have STEEM tho, it's easy to convert to SBD from inside your wallet.

SBD attempts to always be worth around $1 USD. (Tho in practice it fluctuates.)

So, the winner will receive the SBD tokens, whatever they're currently valued at. So ya, the tokens are the prize pool, and its value could rise or fall throughout the season.

If we want, I'm open to converting the prize pool from SBD to STEEM, if everyone is okay with it.

Lmk if that doesn't make sense or you have any other questions.

After looking at all your posts and your page. I have come to the conclusion that you are the bigger, better, sexier version of me and my page LOL. You like sports and crypto and post good shit.

hahahah. have to give you the full upvote for that. (not for the vanity aspect, just because it's good and funny.)

I'll check out your page! glad I have a steemit doppelganger lol

Makes perfect sense, Thanks for clarifying that.

nice! no problem

thanks @verifyme and @taginspector !

Yo mate,

you seem to have opinions :) , why don't you tell me what you think about witnesses

https://steemit.com/contest/@itstime/5-steem-giveaway-what-do-you-expect-a-witness-to-do-for-steem

oh man, normally I'm happy to opine on whatever issue under the sun..

But I don't really know much of anything about how the witnesses work, lol. Kind of ignorant on that, I basically just trust them and trust the process lol, I don't really know what's under the hood.

Good luck with your contest tho.

That's the whole point , to make us think , who and what these witnesses are...

read other's comments maybe it piques your preference of expectations for these mythical beings...
