As some of you know, Noel has asked me to be co-commissioner with him from this year onwards in the classic " TFP Originals " live draft fantasy league. We’ve had a few chats recently and can now announce:
2017 Live Draft Date: Saturday September 2nd
2017 Live Draft Location: Southampton
…so that is one you can stick in your diaries now!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
We wanted to also give you a bit of advance notice about what will be happening over the off-season, so here is a rough plan
Next few weeks sees us all focussing on enjoying the Conference Championships and Superbowl - and after that I am dashing off on holiday - which is why we wanted to get the date out to you now rather than have everyone in the dark for several weeks
March I will run a few polls on possible tweaks to the league rules - for instance, choosing a preferred waiver wire method, and also changes to how the prize money is distributed. If you’ve got any thoughts on changes, feel free to message me and I will take any suggestions into account
April, once all the polls are complete, I will issue the official 2017 league rules, taking account of any changes we have voted for. I will also announce full details of the exact location of the draft ( I have a few contenders that I will be sizing up… chances are we will rotate round Southampton, Redhill and possibly other venues in the south over the coming seasons). At that point you’ll have plenty of league info so we will start signing up any players from 2016 who want to return
May, if there are spaces to fill, we will open these up first to people on Noel’s waiting list. and then to the wider world
June, I will start sorting out some of the social side of things - working out who is going to be in town for the Friday and / or Saturday evenings, and planning where to eat, drink etc
Finer details to be filled in over the summer, but I hope this gives people some starting information. If you have any questions, drop me a line or post on this thread, and Noel and I will work out an answer where we can.
cheers all !
Jon and Noel
