Just a heads up, and I'm not in charge. But last year they had a rule about they must have a minimum of 100 posts or something like that. It's only because sometimes boards get members that join up, make a couple of posts for a month or so and are then never seen again. I think they just don't want some guy to join up, pick fighters and then piss off a couple months in which spoils it for others.
Maybe hitman harding will clarify, but there was some rule like that, not sure the exact rule. You probably do know your boxing, but maybe try get that post count up so you can join in the fun.


Yeah Im new to this site but I do plan to stick around for sure. Ive become a big boxing fan over the past year and a half and I love it. Im a member of other boxing sites like Pacland and boxingforum.com but I just joined this recently so thats why my post count is still low. Hopefully ill atleast be considered into the fantasy draft, I promise im here to stick around and I wont ditch the forum after a few months.

Basically, the biggest commitment is the period where we all pick our squad, as it requires everyone to be online as frequently as possible. Last year this seemed to be in about a weeks period. As everyone wants it done as quick as possible. They have a draft order, and they want everyone to take there pick A.S.A.P, they don't want someone to not come on for a day or so. Anyways, you miss your pick if your away too long and take your pick at the end. This seems to be the period where the most commitment is required.
After that you sit back and relax and watch how your fights involved (if you look at my sig, that's the team I have had for this year). You just get points based on real results your fighters have, and you can trade or drop/pick new fighters throughout the year (you have a set number of how many times you can drop and add someone though.
That's basically it, there really isn't much commitment at all once you initially pick your squads.


Great explanation Fitz,

That's how it works! Rivado and Hitman Harding I am sure could help with more specifics of the Contest as they are our head referees for the Fantasy Boxing League! DON'T FORGET TO CHECK OUT THE FANTASY BOXING FORUM! It has an FAQ/Information threads that we have created, which details how to play.

Actually my parents aren't Australian, they are Chilean. You haven't heard my dad speak, his english is terrible, lol.
Southeastpaw
lol. My bad Fitz.

So that quote is pretty accurate I take it?


However, I do not think I will partake in the festivities of the fantasy boxing league this season. As the season 1 champ, I will vacate my seat and further my study within the webl boxing realm. I do not have time for both, just one. I must build a strong gym and put the hurt down on these fools. Although I hear that biggeorge is a tyrant as a leader in there. LOL

Are you effing serious?

Nah man, season 1 and season 2 champs MUST do battle in season 3. Period.

How else are we gonna build legacies, dynasties and whatnot.


jeez.
BigG
I'm not a leader in there...Cyrus and Maxy are. I just have one fighter who rips shit everytime he fights (I'm sure the webl crew know who that is)

Just a suggestion and not sure if everyone agrees, but I think the draft order for this year should be done like this.

-The order for drafts should go by the order you finished in season 1. The winner should be rewarded with first pick and go on down. So players from first season should get priority.
-New players are next and they can be sorted out by join date/post count

Not sure if anyone agrees, but players who played last year should be rewarded with where they finished IMO.

A few questions.

How is the draft going to be worked out.....that round robin shit that Avon set up last year was awful. And if we are going to base the draft on performance...IMHO those who did the worst should get the first draft...like they do in the NFL.

It should be the worst guys pick in order up to the #1...then start back at the bottom....none of this 2 back to back picks shit...that was BS.

Also....there was talk about teams being able to keep 1 or 2 fighters...is that still going to be the case?
Thegreatequalizer
i'll participate.
CyruS
I need that #1 overall draft pick.
hitman harding
The draft order etc
current players can keep max 2 boxers.
If team A decides to keep 2 existing boxers for his team his/her first pick will be in the 3rd round etc
The team that finishes last will have the first pick, The team that wins will pick last. The order will reverse after each round
All new teams will pick after existing players in order of membership of Fighthype e.g May 2004 will pick before june 2007.
All other rules will continue as they are only TV points will be modified by Jack Rivado and myself.

All existing players please nominate fighters that you would like too keep ASAP. All new players get a list of 30+ boxers PM to Jack Rivado and myself and we will conduct the draft in a quicker manner then last year.The sooner the better

Is this that Round Robin BS I was talking about.....does that create 2 back to back picks for a team?

Send a list of fighters and this will be a silent draft. Done by Jack rivado and myself. This will not be done live!!!!!!!!!!!. Getting everyone on line together won't work. As encountered last year.
