I just sent an email out to everyone that played last year. Anybody new that wants in for this year needs to PM me or send a friend request.

I am open to suggestions for any changes to this years settings and entry fee.

 

Here is last years rules and the entry fee was $35 per person.

 DNF =  - 5 pts.

Lap Completed =  .005 pts

Lap Led =  .01 pts.

Most Laps Led  = 3 pts

Top 5 finish =  4 pts.

Top 10 finish  =  2 pts

Top 20 finish  =  1 pt.

Win =   12 pts.

Sprint Cup Points =  Same as Sprint Cup

I was thinking of adjusting the laps led and laps completed bonus, and maybe add top 3 finish with that getting 5 pts.

Higher fee request here. I think with alot of the veterans around here there financailly secure and (esp. on this forum) I'm quite confident we can go 100 ot 200 or even higher.  Hell, most of these guys are making single plays that size or alot larger in fact.

With the uncertainty of the offshore industry it would really suck if a few months down the road were shut out of reputable books (as there pretty much aren't any now) and left with no action on the table.

Just my .02 cents.  Good to see you back Chris. I thought you might get garbage-canned back late last year for that garbage you gave SJP. Which she totally deserved by the way.

LOL, Mark...good to see you again. from the feedback I have been geting, it seems that most want it to be raised, but capped at $50....I think if we went any higher we would probably lose more than half the field.

think we are going to roll with $50 this year, one little that has changed this year is that there is a $59.99 league fee, there are some new features (Iphone and Droid Apps) along with many others. Last year was the first year they offered it, so we got to test it for free, If we have the same amount of teams as last year, it would work out to less than $2.00 per player, well worth it.

I will check out a few others, but if I recall correctly...there wasn't anything good for free last year, besides this one.  I say we pay it , since we can customize it.

Premium Features

Draft Pick Trading: Draft picks for future seasons can be traded just like players. Picks can be traded for players, as well as for other picks. For example, you can trade your 2nd round pick in 2013 for another team's 1st round pick in 2014. The system will automatically track these picks from year to year.

Enforce Injured Reserve Removal: This feature will force team owners to remove players from the Injured Reserve slot (if used) once they become healthy. The timeframe in which they must do so will be predetermined by the Commissioner, and the penalty for failure to comply to this rule may be to automatically drop the player after a specified number of periods or to make the roster illegal after a specified number of periods.

Advanced Pending Claim/Bid Controls: This option gives team owners much greater flexibility in creating and managing pending claims and bids, such as Waiver Wire claims and Free Agent bids. With this option, owners can claim or bid on multiple players and separate them into contingency groups, prioritize claims within each group, and choose the maximum number of possible successful claims allowed within each group.

Advanced Free Agent Bidding Options: A set of options that offers greater flexibility in the way free agent bidding is handled, such as the ability to show the highest pending bids, which teams made those bids, and more.

Advanced Contract Options: This feature includes a very advanced and completely automated contract system, eliminating the need for the commissioner to manually adjust contracts. There is also extra functionality even if you choose to use your own custom contracts, such as the ability to prevent owners from dropping a player if he is on specified contract(s).

League Insurance: Your league will always be protected. It will be backed up on our system every day. Should the Commissioner ever make a mistake that cannot be corrected (like mistakenly undoing a draft), or for whatever reason you want, we will restore your entire league for you to any date upon request. This feature is automatically enabled for all premium leagues once full payment has been made.

Custom Columns: Allows the commissioner to define, populate, and order any number of extra columns that appear in the team roster page next to each player. The values are assignable for the entire season or per period.

Prize Management System: A set of options that allows the Commissioner to award several types of prizes for any length of time throughout the course of the season. For example, a prize of $20 can be awarded to the team with the most points every week, and $10 to the team with the 2nd most points. And/or a prize of $50 can be awarded to the team who wins the most weeks throughout the course of the season. That just scratches the surface of what this feature can do!

Allow Duplicate Players: This feature allows any player to exist on multiple fantasy teams. This is often used for but not restricted to Salary Cap leagues. You can allow duplicate players across the entire league, or only within each division.

Minor League Eligibility Options: Allows you to determine when players are eligible for Minors status, based on various criteria such as age and career games played.

Player Salary Generation: Generate salaries for every player in your league with 1 click. This can be based on real-life salaries, cap-hits, or our proprietary system which takes into account your league's rules (including the scoring system and roster setup). For the latter configuration, you can set it to periodically and automatically recalculate salaries throughout the season.

Up to 100 Teams in the league: Your league may have up to 100 fantasy teams, instead of 24.

Priority Customer Support: Commissioners' e-mails to Fantrax Support will be given priority over users without priority customer support. This feature is automatically enabled for all premium leagues once full payment has been made.

Free Playoff Commissioner League: Create a free separate league for the playoffs which begins after your regular season league is over. Your Playoff Commissioner league can either be a continuation of your current league (same players, teams, rules, etc.), or a fresh new league that you create from scratch.

Projected/Simulated Live Scoring: This feature, at any point during the race, will simulate the # of fantasy points a driver would have at the end of the race, allowing you to properly guage how your fantasy team is doing at any point during the race, instead of having to wait until the race is over. For example, if your scoring system awards 40 fpts for coming in 4th place and 41 fpts for coming in 3rd place, and a driver is in 3rd place at some point during the race, he will be awarded 41 fpts at that time. If he then falls to 4th place, 1 fpt will be subtracted at that time. Another example, if your scoring system simply emulates the Sprint Cup Points scoring system, and a driver is in 3rd place at some point during the race, he will be awarded 165 fpts. And if he then falls to 4th place, he will be awarded 160 fpts instead.
