2018 preview
« on: October 22, 2017, 03:26:17 AM »
We kicked off in 2012, and we grew every year since. Let me start the 2018 recruiting early!

We're coming back stronger than ever. A community of 20 fantastic personalities, and always looking for more cycling die-hards to join us on the dark side, participating in one or more of our fantasy leagues. On the menu in 2018:

- UCI WorldTour aka the main league: big teams, long contracts, neo-pro draft, 500 auctions every November.

- Rainbow Cup: straight up snake draft of all cyclists, but their price is fixed based on past results.

- Country Roads: not one, but nine drafts, as all riders get divided into separate pools: sprinters, puncheurs, GC men etc.

- Quick Fix: a series of 5 mini-leagues (cobbles, Ardennes, 3x GT) where you have to guess the next dominant force some weeks before the proceedings.

- Fine Young Cannibals: 2nd year league, focusing on finding fresh talent, a combination of auctions and extensions.

- Wall Street Cycling: my personal favourite, and the most dynamic out there - the only league where you can make big changes overnight. You auction riders very shortly before every big race, and get rewarded/penalized instantly based on the investment/result ratio.


If you'd like to join ANY cycling league (yup, I run them all), send me a PM.

  • kidd5jersey: We cannot pause FA because the pitchers and catchers report in a month and if we want a season then we have to do free agency
    Today at 09:15:53 AM
  • kidd5jersey: You guys let me know what you think but these are problems in the league right now
    Today at 09:16:25 AM
  • RyanJames5: I agree Kidd. Someone has to be able to dedicate time to keep the draft moving and organized.  It's a time consuming job

    Today at 09:19:37 AM
  • indiansnation: My job makes it complicated to be able to keep draft going steady I work 1 to 10pm.
    Today at 09:21:06 AM
  • indiansnation: So my whole day is shot.
    Today at 09:21:25 AM
  • kidd5jersey: Allow me to do the updates on draft to where I can edit Chris' posts.  I have to be able to mark players off and add the drafted players to sheets

    Today at 09:33:29 AM
  • RyanJames5: I'm kind of late with the idea, but rather than releasing everyone on Houston that will not be kept on the roster to Free Agency, what if we held a 1 round draft for all of those players?
    Today at 10:03:35 AM
  • RyanJames5: Just thinking it's such a huge influx of talent that, just by luck, whoever has the most cap space to accumulate a ton of.
    Today at 10:04:12 AM
  • kidd5jersey: That is an interesting idea Ryan.  There is a website draftlottery.com I believe that we can have it generate picks.
    Today at 10:33:06 AM
  • kidd5jersey: I'm not sure there is a good option for this though.  We'll sift through it.
    Today at 10:33:43 AM
  • RyanJames5: It could always be in reverse order of finsh last year.
    Today at 10:39:34 AM
  • RyanJames5: I do agree, certainly no handbook on how to handle a situation like that, I was just trying to think of a way to attempt to evenly distribute talent, rather than just let the team with 80 or 90M in cap space sign everyone
    Today at 10:40:25 AM

  • indiansnation: Brent u know added to fantrax as Houston astros
    Today at 10:59:39 AM
  • indiansnation: Just got to wait a little but to update spreedsheets
    Today at 11:00:10 AM
  • kidd5jersey: I agree Ryan.  The team with $100M will literally sign everyone.
    Today at 11:09:55 AM
  • RyanJames5: Yep, its too much talent to not try to find a way to evenly distribute.
    Today at 11:50:53 AM
  • Brent: Agreed.  Just do a random draft order for all teams and hold a 2 round draft for the MLB and MiLB talent that would be released into the talent pool.
    Today at 11:59:35 AM
  • Daddy: :STL-NFL: v. :NO: its coming
    Today at 12:21:15 PM
  • kidd5jersey: How are we going to do the drafting of it?  Are all managers aware?
    Today at 12:26:03 PM
  • Brent: It wouldn't be too difficult.  Stip out those players and list them out w/contracts for the MLB players.  Run a random generated draft order.  Post both of those lists, draft order and available players.  Advertise it, and then hold the draft.  Whoever doesn't get drafted in 2 rounds (60 players) goes into the FA pool.
    Today at 12:29:55 PM
  • kidd5jersey: Sounds legit.  Brian, get with Cris and see if that is what the best option is.  In that scenarios, guys like Elias Diaz should go back into the draft.
    Today at 12:38:21 PM
  • Brent: Yeah, anyone who was on the original roster outside of the few players kept.
    Today at 12:43:39 PM
  • RyanJames5: Good call.  2 rounds is probably more accurate.
    Today at 12:45:19 PM
  • indiansnation: I'm getting ready for work.
    Today at 12:47:18 PM
  • indiansnation: Can someone send Ldsjay hawks a pm
    Today at 12:47:42 PM
  • indiansnation: See what he thinks.
    Today at 12:47:55 PM
  • Yeagg: Great idea Brent!!
    Today at 01:17:50 PM
  • Yeagg: It should really be done before this weekend is over though, since FA is about to get a lot crazier after Catchers are signed
    Today at 01:20:19 PM
  • kidd5jersey: I will try to get it set up tonight if possible.  How should we assign the picks?
    Today at 01:51:14 PM
  • Yeagg: Either a randomized generator or league standings
    Today at 02:04:56 PM
  • Brent: random generator
    Today at 02:26:43 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: so we are talking about restoring the Houston roster and allowing all teams to draft two players each?
    Today at 02:37:45 PM
  • Brent: No, I'm replying to your PM now.
    Today at 02:50:28 PM
  • kidd5jersey: I will get to this stuff but I am fixing the Amateur Draft first.  Should be done today.
    Today at 02:57:50 PM
