Official TCF fantasy football league 2011

Unread postby JCoz » Fri Jul 15, 2011 10:37 pm

Ok so I wanted to kick this off a little earlier this year in hopes we can get a much bigger field like in 2009.... Below are my rules from last season, I want to open it up for comments and requests for changes going into my second year managing the league. I'm sure some stuff worked, other stuff didn't, so this thread is both for people to say "I'm in" and for comments on changes....

Swerb if you could pin this up in a couple places that would be helpful.

Looking forward to another great season! Let me know if your on board!

Welcome to the Official TCF Fantasy Football League 2010 (Am I allowed to call it that Swerb?):

We will use ESPN to host the league (which is free) to maximize the payouts:
The draft will most likely occur between Aug 30th and Sept 5th, pending board vote.

If you wish to play in this league, please respond to this thread AND send the following information via PM to me within one week (August 28th) 1. Name and Address
2. Method of payment and date of sending

Payments must be received before the Draft (sorry for the last minute setup) and we can accep and checks or money orders

Send checks/money orders to:
John Colosimo
433 Old line Ave
Laurel, MD 20724


$100 Buy in + $25 for unlimited transactions (required), so it is $125 total for each team.

Payments must


The only cash to be taken out of the payout pool will be for a league Trophy - I would like to get a fairly nice official TCF trophy which would have each years champ displayed which can be passed yearly among champs. Costs of the trophy + shipping will be removed from the pot.

If the trophy is something a majority of the group does NOT WANT, we will nix that from the plan. I know this isn't something anyone would put on their living room mantel, but I still think it would be cool to have a trophy to have some history built into the TCF league. - You all can free free to voice disagreements with that.

Division champs will pay out $100
Playoff teams will pay out $50
1st-4th will pay out by remaining pot %'s below

When cost of the trophy, div winners and playoff teams payouts are removed, the remaining pot will be split the following way:

1st 50%
2nd 30%
3rd 12.5%
4th 7.5%

Payouts shall be processed and mailed out no later than Jan. 7th, 2011

Schedule Setup:

Ok, so I want to explain how this will work. It depends on the number of teams we have, but last year we had two 12 team Conferences, each was split into 2 divisions. The regular season stops after week 12.

Winner of each division will get a bye for week 13, the 4 wildcards face off week 13, each Conference will have its champion by week 15, at which point a manually scored "Superbowl" and consolation final (3rd vs 4th) will take place for TCF 2010 League Champion during week 16.

Now, I have built this league with a heavy emphasis placed on divisional play. Here is how the regular season schedule would be set up in a 12 team league:

2 Divisions - You will play each team in your division twice and play 2 games against the other division.

Division record will determine division champion, with the following as the tie break order:

1. Division Record
2. Overall Record
3. H2H record
4. Total Points scored for the season

So be aware, there is a scenario in which a 10-2 team could win the division over an 11-1 team, but there is no scenario in which a 9-3 team could win a division over an 11-1 team.

While the league is fairly standard in terms of scoring, there is one significant twist that I have added: In the playoffs, home teams will get a three point advantage - the reasoning here is that the best regular season teams get a slight advantage just as in the NFL.

This is how the playoffs will be seeded:

Each division will get 2 wild cards, no division will get more wild cards than another:

After playoff teams are decided, all conference playoffs teams will be seeded together using slightly different tie breakers:

1. Division winner
2. Overall record
3. H2H Record
4. Total Points scored for season

Div winners will get the byes regardless of overall record

Example standings end of year using the above tie breaks:
Div 1
1. Team 1 - 10-2 (10-0)*
2. Team 2 - 11-1 (9-1)*
3. Team 3 - 10-2 (8-2)*

4. Team 4 - 4-8 (2-8)
5. Team 5 - 2-10 (1-9)
6. Team 6 - 1-11 (0-10)

Div 2
1. Team 7 - 8-4 (8-2)*
2. Team 8 - 8-4 (7-3)*
3. Team 9 - 7-5 (6-4)*

4. Team 10 - 4-8 (4-6)
5. Team 11 - 3-9 (3-7)
6. Team 12 - 2-10 (2-8)

Playoff seeding would would be as follows in this scenario:

1)Team 1 - 10-2 (10-0)*
2)Team 7 - 8-4 (8-2)*
3)Team 2 - 11-1 (9-1)*
4)Team 3 - 10-2 (8-2)
5)Team 8 - 8-4 (7-3)
6)Team 9 - 7-5 (6-4)

Rd 1
#6 at #3(+3) - #6 wins
#5 at #4(+3) - #4 wins

Rd 2 (reseed if necessary, top seed will face bottom seed)
#6 at #1(+3) - #1 wins
#4 at #2(+3) - #4 wins

Rd 3
#4 at #1(+3) - #4 wins the Conference advances to League Championship, #1 "advances" to Consolation Final

**There will be no Home/Away teams for the League Championship or Final Consolation game**

Each Conference will be split the following way:

Using draft order:

Div 1 - 1,4,5,8,9,12
Div 2 - 2,3,6,7,10,11
