DW you may be receiving a phone call later about the trophy. lol

Did I guess it? ???

If you need any help with that trophy, let me know :) I've been known to create a thing or two every now and then.

The problem if you create it Dave is that it will be so good, the winner won't want to give it back the following year.  ;)

Not that your's won't be good Jorge.

No, the problem would be if Jorge asked me to do it, I wouldn't have it finished till the 2010 season started....  ::)

Yeah, shouldn't be too hard.
Find a trophy with a figure on top. Unscrew the figure. Match the bold pattern. Buy a bolt to attach to the bottom of a Sandtrooper figure that has been painted to match the color of the trophy. Attach the screw to the gold colored trooper, and you're all set . Get a trophy that's 4 sided, and holds plenty of plaques to engrave each year's champion and game score on it.

after doing some research (actually starting 4 leagues to see their features lol) I am trying to narrow it down to one or we could do two leagues depending on the amount of people.

Here is my assessment of the leagues:

Yahoo - the ol' reliable league we have used in the past. easy to use. has keeper option this year. can have as many playoff teams as you want. pts totally customizable. stat tracker has a fee and no division play. We do have a history on it and that can be accessed. Actually already is.

NFL.com/cbssportsline.com - same league pretty much done on same site I do believe. can have divisions (3). free stat tracker. ran just like a real NFL league. scoring is per-determined as well as rooster slots. only 12 teams and only 4 teams make playoffs.  I personally don't like it.

espn.com - division play allowed 4 divisions. can have as many playoffs as you want. free stat tracker. new features include have a head coach on rooster and live auction draft - draft in which you put a player up for bids where the highest bid gets the player. each team is given a budget of $200 for this. totally customizable and seems to work well.

foxsports.com - has division play. as many teams as you want for playoffs. customizable scoring.

I guess it would be time to put to a vote which one we want to do. Yahoo, ESPN, and foxsports.com all seem to be pretty good. I have leagues set up on all three.

Is the $200 budget used to draft all your players?

the $200 budget is for your whole team. so you have to spend wisely. minimum bid is $1 per athlete. if you want to spend a lot on a particular player you will be given a max in order for you to be able to complete your rooster. it seems like it could be pretty fun.

here is a link to the "auction" draft new feature.

I like the ESPN $200 budget idea, that's a new one to me. Might make for a long, hard draft tho.

for each round you only get 30 seconds of bidding using the auction style. so it may go quicker than first thought.

the auction style of draft isn't the only one available for espn it is just the new thing out there. they have standard live drafts as well.

I am going to end up keeping all 3 leagues open so whoever doesn't want one can do the other. the others may end up being for SW fans and others I know in general not solely for st.com.

is it too late to add a poll to this thread so we can vote on league? or should I just do invites to all three leagues I have open and go from there? I just want people to be happy with the league that is chosen for our group.

my vote has been cast. just a reminder about the leagues nothing is set in stone as far as scoring goes, draft type, etc. (if we choose say ESPN we would vote on draft type (either traditional live or auction live)) that will be figured out once we get the league formed, which there are three up and running in the sandtrooper name. Once we pick a league the other leagues will get a name change and be for anyone. One of the other leagues could be our overflow league or if people want to do a "competitive/serious" league I am sure we can work it out at some point. The league we are voting on is for us only and will be our main one where a trophy will be handed out at the end of the season and it is just for fun and bragging rights.

I voted for the yahoo league because I'm most familiar with that one but I'll pretty much play in any. My only 'no' vote goes to the auction-style draft.

ESPN is totally customizable man. You can have bonuses for certain stats and you can have virtual trophies made as well. Was thinking about having a weekly high score trophy. lol the only league that wasn't customizable was nfl.com. they are all user friendly and all pretty much the same as Yahell.

Espn has the free stat tracking, and they let you customize your team helmet to some degree.

i vote against the bidding league. that takes too much thought for me.

I agree, the bidding league is a distraction. The regular ESPN league is good.
If we can do 4 divisions that would be great.

Maybe we can all vote on a date for the draft that works for the majority.

Should we all send you are e-mail so you can send us an invite to join the league? Or you can just post the league number.

I will post the league id(s) here later tonight. I will post the yahell league and the espn league for people to join. From the votes so far it looks like ESPN league will be the one we go with as our "formal" league. The yahell one will be up for anyone that would prefer that one and will be a multi-group league (people from all over will be there SW and non-SW people).

Here are the links:

ESPN: http://games.espn.go.com/ffl/leagueoffice?leagueId=231156
          league id: 231156
          password: sandtroopers
Yahoo: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/267723
           league id: 267723
           password: bears

ESPN you will need to set-up an acct unless you already have one. Same goes for Yahoo. I have sent invites to everyone I have e-mail addys for in order to get the ESPN league up and running.

please PM me with your e-mail addys I will do it that way and send out invites. I have some of you from the yahell league last year just don't remember who some of you are don't want to invite the wrong people. lol

I have the following people from yahell league last year:

DW
Foxy
jokabofe
Frank (I think I have him anyways)
Jacensolo66 (just PMed me)

What I just realized was I sent up a totally customizable league and they have a different way of doing invites no links allowed must be invited. So my fault guys.

finally managed to get my brain working and figured out how to sign up. i got 2 invites by the way. i guess it went with a preset team and put me in the same division as fox. can we be the nfc east?
