So I decided to run it this year. LLWFC and I are going to be tag teaming again. We're STILL here to [mess]* [stuff] up:
(The still coming from here: http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=479567)




* '[]' signify euphemisms

Without further ado, I must announce some changes to the system this season. In the past, we've essentially just had who we've adopted in our sigs and just tracked stats. This is lame. Here are the new rules for the new season:

The Rules:
1. Everyone does 1 write up per week. Write up includes: personal performance of your Adopted Raider, the team we faced, and stats. Then add depth based on personal preference. Write ups don't have to be essay, just a paragraph. 4-7 sentences and the stats should do. Feel free to go a little bigger based on the game, but please, not too long.

2. Missing 3 write ups for your player let's him be up for grabs, and the lowest ranking seed from the original draft gets dibs. Sort of like waivers in the NFL. Your own misses or if you just post crap comes into play too if you're trying to take someone else's play who is up for grabs.

3. Big write up at end of season.

4. Re-adopts are OK if your player is cut, injured or traded. Depends on circumstances if benched. Trades of picks or players is cool, but make sure you both have your ish straight with it because we're not gonna deal with bs.

I'm gonna be archiving each week of write-ups into a mega thread at the end of the year so we can analyze how our team did. Hopefully this becomes a massive tradition and we can really see how players and the team progress. That way we can really analyze our moves as a franchise.

I'm planning on beginning the draft on Tuesday or Monday night.

Lol ive been thinking im the kiss of death.

I had Louis Murphy the year after his rookie year when many thought he might take the next step. Obviously he didnt.

And last year I had Houston who many around here thought slumped last year (I thought he played at a pretty high level, but he didnt have flash sack numbers, and didnt improve upon his rookie year).

Im not taking anybody thats going on their sophomore year this year.

Don't you dare choose McFadden. Evil or Very Mad

I did it last year, I had Jason Campbell. At least my kiss of death resulted in an upgrade at the position. I think I'll pass on this years.
