    Arrow The "Official" ClanRam FF League!

    Jakester the Commish here. Sorry for the hold-up. I had no idea my fellow ClanRammers would be so eager to join up so early this year. Definitely a good sign. I'm embarrassed to say (as an all-seeing, all-knowing Moderator) I missed tx's 3-week old thread - I even forgot we had a FF forum... I thought this was just a weird role-playing forum for those imaginitive minds out there.

    Anyway, I've read through all those multiple-page threads to see who's started what, get a feel for how many people are planning on playing, the rules, dates, etc. and decided that we will indeed start a separate, new "official" ClanRam Blue/Gold league. No disrespect to badmofo or anyone else who's started one already, but we've got a tradition to uphold here, and the ClanRam Cup just wouldn't feel the same without the usual rules, league names, point systems, and all that neat stuff. That said, I'd be happy to join any of those existing leagues because I tend to have about 4-5 teams a year. I'm guessing most of you that have already joined different ones are the same way (that is, if you're a REAL FF nut), so I hope this is no big deal.

    Now that I've got all that crap out of the way, here's the lowdown on what's concrete right now:

    1) No league has been created yet. Anyone who wants to play, please raise your hand in this thread. Depending on this early guestimate, there will be 10-12 teams per league.

    2) There will be 2 leagues, the Blue league and the Gold league. They'll be completely separate, meaning that Torry Holt will be on both a Blue and a Gold team. Playoffs will be over by week 15, and the champions from the Blue/Gold leagues will face each other in week 16. I'm a little cloudy on how we did this last season (as far as figuring the championship game with the leagues being separate) - so any input would be appreciated. Please forgive my Tetrahydrocannabinol-induced brain.

    3) DJRamFan was the co-Commish last year, but he hasn't been hanging around much lately. Since there will be two leagues/conferences, I'll need another official ClanRam commissioner to help me out and run the other conference. Keep in mind this job comes with humongous responsibility. People have died defending me as Commissioner, there have been many riots, protests, uprisings and whatnot. In other words, don't skip out on the league and be prepared to deal with day-to-day issues like trades, etc. Post it here or PM me if you'd like to take up this great opportunity, and I will choose that lucky person... sooner than later. BTW, I do take bribes [hint, hint].

    4) Weekly lineups will be the classic 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 DEF, 1 K. The number of backups will be determined with a little input from you guys.

    5) PM me with any concerns or questions about the legacy of the ClanRam Cup and how it will run, or really anything else. I'm always open to suggestions, questions and/or criticism.

    6) Let's see... um... okay there is no number six.

    Fear the Mighty Bombjacks.

    Well, I didn't mean induced as of this moment. Though around championship time, without the Mighty Bombjacks included, yes I was under the influence.

    And keep in mind I won second place in the state spelling bee in 3rd grade. Booyah.

    The count is up to four. ClanRam could even end up having four eight-team leagues. We'll see. I'd like to keep a few spaces open for the late-comers, as well.

    I am in. Thanks for posting this Jakester. We need to have an official ClanRam league.

    Questions....

    are we going to have a live draft this year?

    can we pick defensive players?

    It will be a live draft, and anyone that can't make it at that time can simply set their own team on "auto-draft" which will select players according to their personal rankings. I think a Saturday draft day would work best for most, but a specific time must also be set. Those of you with working schedules, please give me your input, as I'm sure I could get off any time, any weekend day before football season. I know badmofo has set up his draft for the 19th of August, so we'll schedule around that, with plenty of ClanRammers in that league already.

    Defensive players won't be a part of these rosters. Teams as a whole will be drafted for the D/ST spots (at least two).

    Count's up to TEN already.

    A saturday draft late in the afternoon (after 5 PM pacific time) would be good for me, or Sunday.

    I was thinking around 7:30-8PM (edit: Central time) on a Saturday night, if that sounds good to everyone.

    Count's up to TWELVE.

    Would everyone be cool with two 12-team leagues? Seems like we'll have enough players. Anyone feel like being a commissioner?
