2010 NFBC Diamond, Ultimate and Super Signup List

Postby Hells Satans » Sat Feb 13, 2010 2:00 am

Is there going to be an Ultimate League draft in AC? Right now, there are 2 people signed up, and I'd prefer not to write a $5k check for a league that won't happen.

If this is Robert, I apologize for not calling you on Monday. I meant to, but then with the bad weather coming I changed my flight and rushed to ST. Louis.



Creating an Ultimate Draft League that first weekend in AC and LV is going to be difficult. However, we do have interest in the Ultimate Draft League the second weekend among the various cities. Anyone who wants to draft in the Ultimate League should likely plan for that second weekend and we'll work on a way to get you in via phone, online or on site. We'd love to have everyone in one draft room, but we know how to make this enjoyable and seamless even if you can't make it to that live event.



I'll gladly explain on the phone if anyone is interested. Just drop me an email at [email]greg@fanball.com[/email] and I'll call you soon. And if you are planning for a Super or Ultimate League but don't officially want to put payment down just yet, email me your intentions as well and I'll make sure to set aside a spot for you. Thanks all.

I'll hold off sending in payment until the details shake out, but hold a spot for me, and assuming everythings jives with schedules, I'll send in the money. Thanks.

[/QUOTE]Perfect. We'll be able to make this work. I'll call you this week. I don't need your money right now, just your commitment. We'll fill this one up and have some fun on Sunday, March 28th or Sunday, March 21st.

Did someone drop out of that Super League? Because now I am #15... I was hoping another league would fill up, but this works too... Kent gets his wish.

hahahaha... now why would you need me to do that if I'm such a weak owner? Well, I'll certainly be out later than 10PM, but they know I'm not gonna stay out too late on Fri and Sat night... I tend to take things seriously with 10k on the line...

Yes, we had an owner drop out of the Super last week so that moved you up Dave. I'm glad we were able to accomodate you and happy we had 16 to keep the league full in case something like this occurred.

Are you staying at Bellagio? If so we need to grab a cold one. I will have little time beyond Thur night. 4 drafts in a 48 hour period after that...

We lost one in the ultimate auction? This is THE best event of the season, do people know that? The Diamond may be nice, but it's no auction.



Get this filled up E!!! Roll out the perks. :D

We have 10 owners right now and two more are on the fence. I haven't heard from Mr. Greg Morgan, who loves the auction format and has been a regular in the Ultimate Auction for years. He also must need a tax writeoff after going to Las Vegas for a second straight year on the WCOFF!! :D Someone contact him for me as I can't get a hold of him.



Can we get to 13 and then find two more? That's the hope now. Help us push this along if you can because we also want to do this again.

Okay, we had a major run of owners moving from the Ultimate Draft League on Sunday, March 28th to the Super League and that Super is now filled with 15 owners. I'm somewhat disappointed because I still would like to get an Ultimate Draft League for folks this year and that's going to be tough to do now.



Tomorrow I'll lay out some ideas because I think there are still some folks who want to do a Super or an Ultimate League that weekend. Should we try for another Super on Sunday at 4 pm PT?? Should we move the Ultimate Draft League to 4 pm PT, even though we're still trying to fill an Ultimate Auction League at that time?



I'll try to figure this out and post some ideas tomorrow. I'm glad that we're closing in on three Super Leagues, but maybe there's one more big money private league yet to fill. Stay tuned.

Greg you said "Okay, we had a major run of owners moving from the Ultimate Draft League on Sunday, March 28th to the Super League and that Super is now filled with 15 owners."



Did they not know they were jumping from the frying pan into the fire? Sack's wife just ran out the door with the credit card screaming shopping binge! :D

WOW! I was thinking of doing the Super on the 28th, but 4 ppl joined in the past 19 hrs!!! Just emailed Greg about it last night, lol.



I will keep an eye out for another super if offered on the 28th and maybe get in if it has momentum. Im leaning towards it......

I had better CATCH my lovely wife in time, because unless she has cash to spend, those credit cards are going to be filled with NFBC entry fees! ;)



John, glad to see the league fill. Always like building up to that last afternoon for the BIG DRAFT. Should be fun, Luny and I are looking forward to competing against a very tough bunch.

Greg/Tom,



I'd like to sign up for the Super on the 20th. I'll submit online if it helps. I'd be drafting by phone.



And yes, I will make sure Stephen Jupinka will regret signing up for this league! :D



Quahogs - how have you been my friend? Hope all is going well.

No need to do it online yet. Let's get to 15 owners first. I think you make 11. Thanks Michael. Phone will work.
