View Full Version : KEEPERS

01-16-2014, 09:28 AM
Happy New Year Guys!
I'd like to throw something out for discussion...

How about that you can only keep "Keepers" for three or maybe four years top. Or we just start fresh every four years.
This will keep the league fresh.
The league is getting a little stagnant. It needs to refresh itself.

What do you guys think?

Let's get everybody registered, then we can discuss any possible changes we wish to make. It is a fun league as is, but it's also not a bad idea to talk about any potential changes that can help make it even better.

8 keepers per team (except for the winning team which gets 8). So I think you'll need to pare that down one, Cheech.

:lol Safe to assume that you meant the winner gets 9?

03-03-2014, 09:00 PM
Haha, not sure how that happened. But yes, it's 9. :)

Set my potential keepers a month ago but now not seeing the setting or who I chose, am I missing something?

03-08-2014, 02:00 PM
Yeah I noticed that it's gone too. Perhaps the "keeper deadline" on Yahoo has passed. Maybe axl can reset it?

03-09-2014, 05:07 PM
it was set for March 5th as the deadline to set your keepers.

03-09-2014, 05:56 PM
I got mine in and I'm not worried about not having them but you'd think it would still show you who you choose.

03-10-2014, 12:34 AM
Axl has to go through each team and take the non keepers off each team. It can take him a while.

03-10-2014, 02:51 PM
I should be able to input keepers in Yahoo for each team, then all other players will be released into the FA Pool. Keeper deadline is now, so let's get them in for all teams. We also need to finalize a time for the draft.

By the way 7, why the new username? If you had a problem logging in with your regular one, send a pm to Habspatrol and he should be able to help you get back in.

03-10-2014, 02:57 PM
Yeah I can merge the 2 accounts... just give me the word F7.

03-10-2014, 08:03 PM

Haps, yeah I did have a hard time logging in. If you can merge both that would be great!

03-11-2014, 08:36 AM
Done... and I emailed you your new password. If you have troubles, email me back or I suppose you could create a new account and PM me.

Hey Axl,

When are you going to remove the non keepers from our teams? I would like to do some research on the players that will be available ahead of time.

03-14-2014, 01:38 PM
Sorry, it's been a really busy week. Still waiting for all keepers to be submitted from a few teams. I also sent out an email asking for feedback on the live draft, and only received a few replies. While technically no one has said they can't make it for this Monday, I am going to push the draft back to be safe.

Was planning to send out another email today, which I will do in a minute. Draft now set for Sunday, March 23 at 830pm EST. Probably that or the following day (Mon. Mar. 24) are our best bets.

Not 100% of the rest, can someone see who I selected?

Go to the regular league page for the league. To the right of the title PLAYING FOR KEEPS you will see "SEASON - 2014". Click the drop-down menu, then 2013. Then click on your team name. You will see the list of players you had at the end of last season, pick your keepers and post 'em here.

03-14-2014, 01:46 PM
I'm good with any draft time.

Updated my keepers I want, thought I already selected them on the league yahoo page that's why I hadn't here. Doesn't matter when the draft is, sunday works best though

03-14-2014, 08:08 PM
any time this weekend or monday works for me

03-14-2014, 08:25 PM
updated my keepers, any of the draft times will work for me
