Do you follow the Premier League?
Would you like to get involved in a draft type fantasy money league on it?
Then read on my friend as I have just such a league drafting this Sunday at 4pm. I have picked a live draft date and time for this league to give people some clarity as to when it will take place so they can know if they are able to commit to it or not and or make arrangements for it.
Each entrant that signs up can vote for the scoring settings we will use - either Classic (as we had in this league last year) or Head to Head. One team one vote - which you will cast by posting on the leagues message board. Whichever option the majority are in favour of come Saturday night at midnight (going into Sunday - draft day) will be which setting we go with. If by some chance it’s a tie I will flip a coin - can’t really say fairer than that.
The entry fee will be the same as last season - £25 per team. I will confirm prizes after the draft but before the season starts when I know how many teams we have (unless I get a full quota of 16 players prior to then in which case I can then work out the prizes before the draft itself - which would be better. All entry fees will be paid back out as prizes 100%).
I am using Fantasy Premier Leagues draft game for this money league.
You may have noticed from the above league info I have activated player trading in this league where it goes to a vote system - this means managers can vote against a trade (hopefully they only do this if they think the trade is unfair) but to get a trade vetoed it takes 50% of managers to vote against it - not only that a trade is approved at the waiver deadline and the system takes any non team manager votes as approval. So it is much more likely trades will go through than not - and also means managers should pay attention to trades when notified and use their veto option if they don’t agree with it.
I have stuck with the standard default of 90 seconds per pick - I know some find this to long but equally others don’t so decided to keep to the default setting (the system allows for me to set it at 30 through to 120 seconds).
I have switched to a Sunday afternoon for the live draft in the hope it will suit as many prospective players as possible and as this game allows overseas players am hoping some will join us to. Furthermore if times don’t suit those overseas am hoping the fact it’s a Sunday may allow them to work around it being a weekend day. I have decided to send this info out by e-mail and post it on TFP and the first 15 to commit and pay up are in.
I will send a direct invite to the league when a person pays the entry fee - that way I guarantee its first come first served, nor do I then have to chase anyone for payment and can confirm the prizes sooner rather than later.

All that remains now is for you to decide - are you in - or out?
