Re: 2008-2009 Champions League Draft Commentary

Off the bat ;-D for the incredible structure built by all 3 league members and especially the organizers. WOW!

Explanation to my random congratulatory post.

Looking for rules(weekly limits, daily/weekly rosters, seasonal limits, positions, categories specifically how to deal with assist to turnover ratio) to build my Los Angeles and San Diego Fam-Buddy league. I came across the octagon "Finalized Rules" thread. Thinking....sweeet.... just what the doctor ordered. Next thing i know...I am NECK DEEP on page 16 of "Discussion - Rules & Settings". Completely riveted by DD, Samo and SOOP! !+) *Pre-solution-compromise* I stepped away for a glass of water and watched NFL Network for about half an hour. I had to finish the thread. Then I briskly went through the "Dead Owners Discussion". Good God!!!

Spent some little time looking at the drafts.

So I guess...what i am getting at now is....HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR THE WAITING LIST? Half-kidding Half serious.

See you guys around and good luck.

edit: League Records page does not specify which column is roto and h2h for the champions league.

How are you guys liking this "Champions" format?

Once you fight your way up to the "upper" league, it just gets even more brutal with the two-league format. Its especially frustrating a rank beginner with only rudimentary knowledge of player value and strategy actually won the inaugural Champion's League! I mean, I could see an mbuser or a jaytizy come out on top, but a geodbear?!?! What the heck is a geodbear anyway? And with DHoward on his Roto team even!!!! Sheesh. That was some kind of crazy fantasy shaolin kung fu where you don't even see the blow coming before you wake up in a hut miles away needing many years of additional training with homemade nunchucks:

Nice to see our Octagon archives discovered by fantasy historians. ;-D

I believe the Rules state somewhere automatic league membership is awarded if a Cafe manager reads every page of our league archives, so consider yourself an Octagon manager 08-09 season! We'll be waiting in the Champions League to thrash you in 09-10...
