    Premier League: Season VI (2017)

    HAY GAIZ

    The Premier League has been running successfully for 6 consecutive years (first year was called Jays Forum Challenge) and was run up through season 3 by Dr. Dinger until he pussed out like a total panz because he got rekt. I took over and the league flourished. You're welcome. This is a yearly redraft that will really test your abilities in a league where everyone is vying for top spot at all costs.

    Past winners:
    2011: King Kat (runner up: John Havok)
    2012: NJH (runner up: Jays_Fever)
    2013: TheHurl (runner up: NJH)
    2014: TheHurl (runner up: Grant77)
    2015: Boxcar (runner up: Cyborg)
    2016: Boxcar (runner up: Frenchsoup)

    I'm looking for 20 players. My first priority is guys who are active and skilled. If you are new, I'll have to judge on a case by case basis but given that I usually have to beg nearer to the draft, I'm not going to be picky. Some guys have gotten their feet wet in this league only to find they really enjoy fantasy and end up joining our dynasties. Secondly, I'm looking for good players who are fun to engage with. Those who joined last year will have priority for the most part but no spots are guaranteed. Be a good sport, and please don't join if all you're going to do is complain about how little you care about the league. Some of us enjoy the competition; it's different from dynasties in that everything gets erased after the year; there is no benefit to fielding an noncompetitive team. Post here or PM me if you're interested in joining.

    *Note: There will be no NA slot this year. If you want to carry a super prospect all year, do so at the expense of your roster flexibility.

    Optional Buy in

    Emphasis on optional. Buy in costs will be $25 which is to be paid to me up until the start of the draft. I will send a PM out with my information to all interested parties and I accept both PayPal and e-transfer. The choice is yours.

    You are in no way obligated to pay this fee. All entries will go in a pot that is to be divided as follows:

    50% of total pot: To best regular season finisher (among teams who have entered) to be decided by winning %, wins, and head to head in that order.
    50% of total pot: To playoff champion (in the event the winner did not buy in, it will be highest playoff finish. Tiebreaker will be regular season finish.)

    I apologize for the emphasis but this was an issue last year and I intend to make it abundantly clear.

    Draft Slot Selection

    I'm tired of people bitching, so draft order will be generated on the day of the draft by Yahoo half an hour before the scheduled draft start time.

    Please indicate interest in this thread and feel free to vote on the draft position issue.

    Draft date

    Is set for Thursday, March 23 @ 6:00 pm. I will set up a sheet to have people indicate when they are not available and whether or not current draft time and date works for them. Please everyone fill this out, except for Hurl. If you come a week before and say you can't make it, that's too late.

    If for some reason something doesn't work for you, please pm, email me or post in the thread.

    Oops. It's actually a Thursday, but I copied and pasted most stuff from last year. Remembered to change the date, forgot to delete Good Friday.

    You guys who were in last year should all have received invites. I'd like anyone who is not interested in returning to indicate as such because I can't take on anyone new until a spot frees up.

    I indicated at the end of the season that I wanted out but just in case that message got lost to the sands of time, I'll confirm it now. I can't speak for my former co-manager Orgfiller.

    I'd love to participate, but the draft date doesn't work very well for me (March is a pretty rough month in general for me), unfortunately I'll have to bow out as well.

    Given that two of my dynasty teams are in a rebuild, I'm game this year if a spot opens.
