2010 NFBC Satellite League Signup Thread

Postby graybros » Thu Mar 04, 2010 10:34 am

I'm excited about the changes for the good that are coming and have been made for NFBC this year. I also love the new visual layout and the ability to view prior seasons stats.



But I do miss knowing well in advance what my draft spot is going to be. I wish that we could go back to the bingo balls for KDS for now and maybe use the automated KDS for football season. I'm currently a week away from my satellite and I'm afraid that we might not hear about our draft slots until next week.



Greg and Tom, thanks again for all your hard work on these improvements and I know once all the bugs are worked out we will look back and realize all the improvements from previous seasons.

Guys, if anyone has leagues that are frozen and they can't set KDS please email me. Do not email me your KDS because the plan is for this to be automated and that means it has to be set on your site. I've contacted our programmers about a few leagues so Craig - send me the list of leagues that you're having trouble with too and I'll forward that to them.



We apologize for the delays here folks but we want to be sure everything about the new setup meets with your approval. We'd rather have a glitch now then later on. But based on what I've been told, this new setup is going to make things MUCH smoother for everyone so that's why we want to make sure it's done just right before we unveil it.

Guys, I just found out why the leagues for next week have been locked. I'm talking to our programming person now so we'll get them unlocked so KDS can be set. The next step then will be setting the KDS deadline which will be done as part of the automated process. Everyone will receive an email letting them know when the deadline will be.

Tom,

The March 23 $250 is full at 15 entries. Maybe we could get a KDS deadline set for this league when you guys have some time.

thx

Any shot at doing a satellite auction for either $125 or $250?

a couple of points



1. On March 31st, there are already four full $125, pay 3 spots leagues and a 5th has been opened. That date/time is almost 1/3 the size of the initial Main Event of 195 teams.



2. a nitpick, but can you change the EST to EDT for all leagues drafted on March 14 and beyond? 7pm would be fine but if you add the EST/EDT, it would be best to use the correct option.

All of the satellite leagues for this week will be on MDC. Draft orders for the full leagues on the 13th and 14th will be set up tomorrow.

It's not looking real good but we still have a little time. But if you're in that league and want to switch to another date email me at [email]tkessenich@fanball.com[/email] with the new league you'd like to switch to.

any chance of convincing the people in the Wed 3/17 WTA to slide over to Tuesday at 9 in order to make one full league. As opposed to 2 that dont go off?

When are the March 31st satelite KDS's due? And, subsequently when will the draft order be released. Once it's released will we be notified by email or have to check on the message board?
I'm the player to be named later.

At this point we don't have any plans to offer more $125 leagues. But that could change once we're done with the live events.



When leagues are full you will be notified by email alerting you to the KDS deadline and when the draft order will be set.
