GM and Assistant GM sign-up sheet
« on: February 28, 2012, 10:33:39 AM »
IMPORTANT
With ProFSL dying slowly but surely, we're moving to a superior platform. No need to register to ProFSL.
You'll find the new sign up sheet here: http://nbafo.freeforums.net/thread/5/gm-assistant-sign-sheet

This is not a typical league, but very much a mathematical experiment, so please read the rules before signing up. The purpose of this thread is not only signing up, but also a screening process for potential GM's. Understand that to have fun (and success) at this, you'll need to be familiar with how NBA contracts are constructed and/or interested in learning more about it. The idea is to make you feel like an actual GM in the long term.

Here you can always see how we stand:

    Fantrax ID: atlantabravesfan
    Google Account: rbeard@middletennesseefantasysports.com (it's with google)
    Email address used daily (only if different): -

    Favorite NBA teams: Memphis Grizzlies
    Teams you'd like to manage, and why: Miami Heat, I'd like to see how I could manage 5 other players around the three studs. I'd like to experiment to see if certain players work better over others.

    Whether you'd be willing to pay $2 per season to have a 30-teams Fantrax league: yes
    Free agents: open bidding if at least only in the beginning then we could vote for something more private down the road
    D-League: The ability to take a chance on a young player who was kicked to the curb by his previous team. If that player can blossom in a new environment, then that's what I call being shrewd.  :thumbsup:
    Scoring period: whole season to be more realistic and to pique interest
    Playoffs after Regular Season: After talking it over with Daniel I feel this is not necessary as the regular season can serve the dual purpose of determining who the best team is and still function like a regular season with playoffs would in any other league
    Should the GMs be individually helped by the LM regarding the less known parts of the CBA: I think so as its the duty of the league commissioner to help out managers, but after one season of play, the more veteran GM's should be able to understand the CBA fairly well

  • Scoring period: whole season, sounds good

    Playoffs after Regular Season: up for anything, but I agree.

    Should the GMs be individually helped by the LM regarding the less known parts of the CBA: probably not, hopefully lets everybody feel like a real NBA GM
agreed, we can all read. unless they seek out help on specific topics

Name: Jonathan
Fantrax ID: levijonathan
Google Account: levi.jonathan27@gmail.com

Daily Email: same
Favorite NBA Team: New York Knicks
Teams You'd Like to Manage and Why: I'd like to manage the Charlotte Bobcats. Where's the fun if you start off with a good team?
CBA Knowledge: Not very much, but I'm pretty competitive, so you can rest assured I will have learned a lot after a short period of time in this league.

Willing to pay: Yes
Free Agents: Secret Bidding by Personal Message to a designated bid receiver. IMO, this is the closest to replicating a real-life situation, where teams have to guess at each other's future transactions by assessing their possible motives.
D-League: Definitely, the more depth to the GM's role the better IMO
Scoring Period: Daily, the GM also has to be the Coach...put your best team out there every night

Playoffs after Regular Season: I'd model the whole season and playoffs after the NBA...of course to fit that schedule within the NBA's pertinent regular season (IMO, pertinent = 70 games give or take)

Should the GMs be individually helped by the LM regarding the less known parts of the CBA: No, but the CBA should be made accessible to GMs in an understandable format and the LM should be available for questions regarding possible gray spots or other concerns.

Your goals pretty much sum up what I'd like to accomplish with my three favorite sports (baseball, football, basketball) once I have a more friendly schedule (Junior year of high school is swallowing my life whole right now). I'm not totally tuned into the mathematics yet (I only had time to skim over it), but I'm certainly very interested.

Other than that, you should know I'm a very, very committed owner.

Thanks,
Jonathan

Welcome on board Jonathan!
And kudos for jumping right into that rebuilding with the Bobcats :winner:
Ladies and gents, the Rich Cho of NBA Front Office!

Playoffs after Regular Season: I'd model the whole season and playoffs after the NBA...of course to fit that schedule within the NBA's pertinent regular season (IMO, pertinent = 70 games give or take)

Do I understand correctly that you're proposing a shortened regular season (say, 50 games like in 1999) and then 4 weeks of Playoffs to declare the NBA Champions even before the real-life regular season turns into a resting&tanking farce? Very interesting point. Anyway, let's move this discussion to the brainstorming thread, shall we?

    Today at 12:19:06 AM
  • Daddy: Yeah, its not a good early lineup.
    Today at 12:24:56 AM
  • Daddy: To be fair teams can only have a max 5 primetime games scheduled per year. Thats already a 3rd of the season.
    Today at 12:25:36 AM
  • Daddy: Thursday games auto kills one, and then there are Sunday night games.
    Today at 12:26:04 AM
  • Daddy: Teams like the Rams, Chiefs, Pats, Eagles, Cowboys, the best teams are on 5 times already. MNF tries to anticipate what they can.
    Today at 12:28:06 AM
  • WestCoastExpress: I’m not even an NFL fan and I’m already bored of TNF and MNF. Titans and Jags aren’t exactly a headliner either. Yikes.
    Today at 12:44:54 AM

    Today at 01:03:54 AM
  • Brent: we all do.  it's by design
    Today at 01:05:29 AM
  • Daddy: Ok my friend
    Today at 01:07:57 AM
  • Brent: We have a 12 NFL week season.  To get 16 games in that season and to not have our multiple oppenent weeks schedules during NFL bye weeks, the schedule had to be front loaded.  2 oppenents weeks 1-2 and 3 oppenents week 3, then single oppenents to finish out the season with the last 3 games, NFL weeks 10, 11, 12 NFLC weeks 14, 15, 16 are all against division opponents.
    Today at 01:08:19 AM
  • Daddy: Its different.
    Today at 01:10:16 AM
  • Daddy: Week 3 becomes the most important week of the year.
    Today at 01:11:01 AM
  • Daddy: Go 0-3 and it would take a month to overcome that.
    Today at 01:11:30 AM
  • Brent: It is
    Today at 01:11:47 AM
  • Brent: Don't go 0-3
    Today at 01:12:20 AM
  • Brent: WCE will go 0-3.  All of his best players are on the bench for tanttastic results.
    Today at 01:13:06 AM
  • Daddy: The Bye Weeks were always just a random byproduct in my schedules. Fair for all because we all had 1. Each week was worth 2 games but that was a condensed schedule because we started late.
    Today at 01:13:48 AM
  • Daddy: It is creative. Either way this week is the most important. Lets get it!
    Today at 01:16:23 AM
  • Daddy: WCE should be in the playoffs.
    Today at 01:17:09 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, I thought through it a lot and to use the NFL scheduling with the size of the league we had to have 16 games and to condense 16 games into 12 weeks to creativity.
    Today at 01:18:02 AM
  • Brent: yeah, but there is not tanking rules so it is what it is.
    Today at 01:18:16 AM
  • Brent: it's what he does
    Today at 01:18:51 AM
  • Brent: there should be some way to address it for next season
    Today at 01:19:50 AM
  • Daddy: Well, if he is fielding eligible guys and purposely not playing his starters, there isnt much to be done.
    Today at 01:22:19 AM
  • Daddy: I made WAR so that you had to start a guy at all times. Someone eligible. If you cana do that then tanking is what it is.
    Today at 01:23:17 AM
  • Brent: yeah, I know
    Today at 01:24:09 AM
  • Brent: i'll need to check the settings to see what options there are
