I'm taking suggestions for our league logo. Must be a square over 192x192px. I just threw some Grumby Gruel in place for now.

Guys, I just sent out an email blast regarding league dues. We're not using Yahoo cash league because fuck them. I refunded everyone that paid through Yahoo.

I need everyone to pay league dues by August 31st. You can PayPal/Venmo me $20.

PayPal: justin_maciak@yahoo.com

If you need Venmo, contact me.

You can see who has paid by checking here: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com ... 4/finances

Thank you everyone for getting your dues paid before the deadline. Don't forget to choose your keeper before tonight (Wednesday Aug 30th at 3am EDT)! Managers that don't choose a keeper will be haphazardly assigned one by me. You wouldn't want that, would you?

Also please remember that the draft is Wednesday September 7th at 9:00pm EDT.

Alright fellas, I know there are some questions about the newly-added IR slot. I went through the process myself and took screenshots because Yahoo doesn't make it apparent how to do so.

An IR player is designated as IR, PUP or O.

1. You must have an empty bench slot before adding an IR player. Yes, this is dumb.
2. Once you have an empty bench slot, add the IR player.
3. Click the blue "BN" next to the IR player's name on your team.
4. The IR slot will now show up and you can select it, which will move the IR player to the IR slot.
5. Once that players has been returned to active status, you will need to make a decision if you want to roster them or drop them, as you won't be able to complete any other transactions.

I'll be creating the end of season poll very soon, so thanks for your input Andrew. If anyone else would like to discuss, please do so.

I'd like to congratulate the following managers on winning this year's Football for Smart People league:

1st: Gonna be a Brees
2nd: TheRapists
3rd: Slack Jawed Yokels

Prize money has been dispersed (it was sent to the email you used to pay your league dues with).

The rest of you need to try harder!

IMPORTANT: The end of season poll will be sent out very soon. I'll be posting it on the forums and also sending the link out via Yahoo...

Thanks everyone! Your opinion matters very, very much on the success of our league.

Poll Results:
2016 End Of Season Poll.pdf
(20.61 KiB) Downloaded 42 times

Let me summarize this so it's easier to discuss...

Everyone is mostly in agreement with the following items (50% or over, with no ties or conflicts), thus they will be effective next season...

Administrative:
Draft Day = Wednesday before the season starts (no change)
Trade Deadline = current default setting of week 10 (no change)
Trade Processing Time = 2 days (change)
Consolation Winner gets 1st Draft Pick = Yes (change)
Remove Roster Lock for Consolation Bracket = Yes, with the stipulation that waiver priorities will be manually edited so that championship teams have first pick over consolation teams. (change)
Happy with Sunday - Tuesday Waiver System = Yes (no change) - Fun fact: everyone was in 100% agreement on this!
Is The IR Slot Useful? = Yes (no change, except allowing direct IR slot adds next season)

Scoring:
Penalize QBs for Pick Sixes Thrown = No (no change)
Points for 1st Downs = No (no change)

Lastly, 75% of people had a good time this season. :thumbsup:

If the item wasn't in the summary list, it will be discussed and re-voted upon as necessary. These items include:
- Draft Pick Trading
- Flex Slot - We need to choose between the two options that got 37.5%.
- Punishment for starting inactives/empty slots for multiple weeks
- Yard Bonuses - The issue here is a consensus. For example, people that voted for "Keep current bonuses" added in other bonuses and scoring comments.
- Consolation winner draft pick - Now that this is official, does it go into effect immediately? i.e. Tools won consolation, does he get 1st pick in 2017?

Let's begin discussion on these 5 action items and see what we can come up with.

My Notes:
Scoring. A required, B and C optional
A) 20yd/1pt or 10yd/1pt B) no bonuses, current yardage bonus, 40+ bonus C) no 1st down points or yes 1st down points
