WELCOME TO FIGHTHYPE'S 2008 FANTASY BOXING LEAGUE!!!
The 2008 Fighthype Fantasy Boxing League runs from January 1, 2008 and ends on December 31, 2008.
How to play:
To join the league you will draft a squad of players and earn league points whenever a fighter in your squad wins a fight, wins or defends a world title, appears on national or international television and you may lose points if a fighter in your team fails to make weight, fails a drug test or loses by DQ. Please refer to the scoring guidelines below for details.
Every team will consist of 10 active fighters. You can deem a spot on your roster as "vacant" after an add/drop or trade as long as your roster consists of 10 fighters at the end of the year. If at the end of the year you fail to meet this requirement you are susceptible to having a large portion of your yearly total docked having your position in the final rankings compromised.
IMPORTANT DRAFT INFORMATION:
Approximately the last week of November, to the first week of December, Fight Hype conducts a Fantasy Boxing League Draft. During this time, league players who wish to participate in the following years' draft will submit a list of 30-50 fighters that they would like to manage for the following year between January 1st to December 31st. PLAYERS NEED TO FILL UP 10 SPOTS ON THEIR DRAFT CHOICES. THE ORDER IS ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS! PLAYERS AROUND NOVEMBER-DECEMBER OF THE PREVIOUS YEAR WILL SEND THEIR LISTS OF BETWEEN 30-50 FIGHTERS (OR MORE) TO RIVADO AND HITMAN HARDING ANY TIME AFTER THE DRAFT DATE IS ANNOUNCED.
AN ON-LINE LIVE DRAFT IS CONDUCTED ON THE DESIGNATED START DATE. YOU CAN EITHER BE ON LINE TO SUBMIT YOUR CHOICES IN PERSON OR SUBMIT YOUR 30-50+ FIGHTERS LIST TO RIVADO OR HITMAN HARDING ON OR AFTER THE START DATE. DRAFT LISTS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED BECAUSE THE ON-LINE PROCESS REQUIRES USERS TO BE NEAR A COMPUTER, WITH INTERNET ACCESS, TO SUBMIT THEIR SELECTION WHEN THEIR TURN IS UP IN THE ROTATION.
You really need 30-50+ fighters for the draft stage. Remember, you must fill up 10 spots. (10 rounds per choice) Also, keep in mind that the most popular fighters get taken first. If you have trouble thinking of names for your list, you can use BoxRec, Ring Magazine, any data source you want. But you must come up with at least 30 fighters. (The more, the better) Than you can either be online or e-mail your lists anytime on or after the start date.
Add/Drops and Trades:
During the season you will be allowed 10 add/drops and 5 trades. This is a change from last season when you where allowed only 8 add/drops and 4 trades with a deadline. The add/drops can be used to "drop" a fighter from your roster and replacing them when you pick up or "add" a new fighter to your team. You can chose any active fighter to replace a "dropped" fighter as long as the new fighter is not on another league member's team. Also, this year the deadline for add/drops and trades will be cleared and you will be able to make moves to your roster until the final day of play. We will accept multiple fighter trades, i.e. you and another team agree to enter a trade where team A trades 2 fighters for 1 on team B's. You can enter 3 for 1 deal or 3 for 2 or a 4 for 1 etc., etc. trade at any time. When multiple fighter trades occur a team might be left with a vacant spot on their roster. When this happens you are allowed to "pick up" an additional fighter to fill the vacancy and still have it only count as a single trade. During a multiple fight trade some teams might be left with one fighter too many and in this case you have the option to waive the extra fighter(s) or "move" existing members of your roster to make room for the newly acquired fighters if you decide to keep them. Multi-fighter trades will only count as one single trade.
