    Thanks. Thought it was tomorrow.

    Last week I captained a guy on disciplinary suspension, and that didn't work out too well. I may try a different strategy this time.

    Might I suggest captaining a guy on international duty? or if your feeling frisky a guy with torn hammy? Or, if your really hopped up on PCP and wanna do both, but still want to be loyal to your home town club, you could cap Matarrita*


    *(technically can't be on int'l duty and injured, but for an esteemed gentleman such as yourself we will make the exception and say he is).

    Completely frustrating. I didn't stop trying, I was still actively selecting my preferred players, you guys just started whooping me. Evidence of how strong the league is top to bottom.

    Two more weeks to make some magic happen!

    ya know what they should do, get rid of the point for playing 1 min, and bonus for 60 min. And in its place they should just scale a players score by how productive they were for the time they were on the field. So like scoring a goal in 90' = 5. But scoring in <45' is worth 10, <15' worth 15. I would love if it were granular to the minute, but I can see how the game would get funky if a sub gets on for a minute and scored then his total blows out to 450 points (=5*90).

    My basis for this is it just seems like Lewis produces so well but isnt being given enough playtime. He would be a supersub stud if they scored like this. Sure if you think that he's gonna produce in <15 minutes you might pick him, but your not really rewarded for your faith in the guy. His assist in a short time is worth the same as an assist for a guy who will get a full 90, surely you pick that guy for the chance to do more since he gets more time. I understand the price system is supposed to limit you from picking a full line-up of 90min studs, but clearly that mechanism is broken. So either fix the price system, or patch it with this.

    Also side note SaboSabo , BOOM re-calibration ties are the best ties!

    My points against mean I'm essentially playing the 2nd/3rd best team every single week.

    Lost 162-161 this week because a guy the site said was out ended up playing...

    That was total kharma. I was looking at JackJack and FredMertzFredMertz at the end of all the games and thinking a change of just one point on either side would change that result.

    Excuse me half the league - there were two games last night, which should have been easy to remember because WE had a game last night too....

    The Fall season is going to start in a couple of weeks. dummyrundummyrun and ShwaftaShwafta are interested in joining. If they both want to join (we cant have an odd number of players) I propose they come in for $20 each and the prize pool for the Fall Season increase to 1st $155, 2nd $55 and 3rd $35. We are in the middle of the Pigeon Cup so they wouldn't be taking part in that.

    Let me know if you are interested.

    Possible issue: I'm not sure we can add people without creating a new league, unless that's a feature of the split season.

    Yes and there are other possible issues. I think it would work but I wouldn't want them to pay until I am sure it works.

    By the way, I'm completely pissed that I lost this week because Impact center back Rod Fanni got a virus that kept him out of the clean sheet game at home against San Jose -- one of the highest probabilities of the week -- after I played him and took the hit I expected in their first game against us.

    Does it really matter if we need to start a new league if they are resetting the standings?

    Depends on whether they also reset budgets, etc. Of course, if they don't reset budgets then it's probably unfair to the new guys.

    I'll be in, I just need to understand the logistics...
    Also, worst case if we can't for the Fall season, I'd be happy to join in the Spring for next season, as well. c:

    If you haven't created a fantasy team on mlssoccer.com go ahead and do that now. There is going to be a short window to try and make the Forum H2H League expansion happen for the Fall season.
