  1. Golf Twitter is going to have a total meltdown if this comes down to a Reed/Bryson showdown and I am here for all of it. Give me a couple of guys in black hats, gonna be fun.
  2. Also, as a note to those who made waiver claims today, I didn't run them now. I'm waiting to see what happens Sunday
  3. Looking at it you aren't the only one. I'll push them through. Edit: And done.
  4. waivers ran at 5 am, the next waiver run is Sunday morning at 5 am.
  5. And see, for me, someone who is a low spin player on the irons I love getting that extra spin because it helps me hit my numbers easier. Different strokes, different folks. Can't wait for Srixon to show up in here as it's a three horse race for the bag going forward between BXS, V1X, and Z Star XV
  6. Point one, Waivers will run 3 times during the week, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday, set to run at 5 AM EST. Your second point, yes or so we hope, although those people who are dropped after Thursday will be on waivers until Sunday morning Third point, Yes, at around 9 am I guess
  7. So two things. First, waivers were manually processed a few minutes ago and there was only one claim. Second, I was informed by @Getoffmylawn about issues with locked players. Upon further review, we realized that players would be locked until kick-off of Sunday's game. We've now made a change so that players will be locked until the first waiver run. So what that means going forward is should you drop someone when waivers run for the first time on Wednesday, they'll be locked, or biddable and come off the the page on the Thursday morning waiver run. For week 1, continue to make your adds and drops and I'll manually process the waivers on Sunday morning. But tonight we get started, seems impossible but here we are!
  8. As to why I made the change to process waivers today instead of tomorrow, I did it for the reason @GolfSpy STUDque went through and placed lineups for people, I wanted to give people lead time to make the adjustments to the roster, and I didn't want blanks if people didn't check on Thursday. As far as your question @goaliewales14, you just may have to wait until live scoring goes on Thursday. However, you can see who your opponent plans on playing by doing the following on the website. 1) Open your schedule and click the team you're facing. 2) Click Box Score at the far end of clickable options. 3) It will show the perspective starting lineup of the team you are playing. If you're in the app, it's a bit easier. 1) Click Scores 2) Click your matchup, and then click the logo of your opponent 3) Shows their lineup.
  9. Week 1 waivers have been processed manually. I will also process them on Saturday Evening should they need to be processed as well.
  10. So, as a way to put a bow on this fantasy season, I guess it's time for me for put together the closing post. First, a congratulations to @Apolloshowl for his victory. It was tight there at the end but having 4 guys seemed to be the way for him to get it done. Having been involved in a review opportunity with him in the past, I know he'll make great use of that golden ticket and put forth an incredible review for all of you guys when he gets his choice. Second, I want to thank all of our players for this season. Thank you for being flexible with us. Obviously 2020 has been a battle for everyone, but we're happy that we were able to bring this league to a fitting and rousing conclusion and a worthy winner. Third, a huge thank you to my fellow commissioners @GolfSpy STUDque and @Undershooter. We may have had our disagreements about things and how we needed to set things up, but I wouldn't do this with any other dudes... except maybe @Bucky CC *wink wink*. Fourth, The 2021 Fantasy Season will likely start sometime around January, just so you know. We normally start with the California Swing for those of you who are new, but that's normally our start so keep watching this space. Fifth, we understand that we are not above reproach as commissioners. Should you have any suggestions as how to improve our league, either post them here or hit us with a private message. If we can make it happen we will try to do it. I know we're at least going to look at lineup options, moving away from the best ball format of this year to make choosing a lineup imperative. But if you think scoring if off, we need to change the schedule, anything, let us know Lastly, I hope all of you enjoy the off season and watching these next two majors as fans. We'll see you in 2021!
  11. Make them in the app, i have access to a screen where i can force them through. Also, check your email for a response to your trade bait announcement
  12. the minimum bid is zero dollars, so you don't have to, but whomever makes the highest bid will get the player.
  13. WAIVER NOTE So, we didn't think we would need to have waivers since we were all drafting right before week 1, but apparently we forgot the consideration of auto-drafters who may want a change. So what we're doing is the following. We are keeping the current waiver calendar set up for them to process next week as to not screw up anything we have set-up with the calendar, but I am going to manually process the waiver requests on Thursday at 9 am. I will also be processing waivers if need be manually on Sunday morning as well. Best of luck Bucky drafters, I'll be there tonight for support!
  14. As someone who has done online auctions, there are. It is different for sure.
  15. And this is why, even though I love me some auction draft action, you'll probably never see it in the MGS leagues, we'd be at it forever! Imagine golf with auctions... fun for sure, but it would take a lifetime.
  16. While I appreciate the solo shoutout, we commissioners are a team so shout out to @GolfSpy STUDque, @Undershooter, and @Bucky CC. I just do the write-ups because writing what I did in a past life as a journalist and currently as a lawyer, so I'm comfy taking the tasks on!
  17. Welcome to the club my man! We all have to do it once or twice.
  18. Hey Kurt, I remember you saying that early in the draft, so I figured I'd chime in. The average time per pick in this draft was 33 seconds. The problem is with a 14 team draft with 14 rounds, that's 196 picks, or around 30 picks more than a standard 10 team, 16 round draft. So if you're used to getting in under 90 minutes or the like, the math just doesn't add up. Not looking to start and argument or anything, just trying to help people gauge proper expectations!
  19. DRAFT NEWS FROM LAST NIGHT So last night was the first of our four drafts, and all things considered it went pretty smoothly. Only one real incident where I needed to step in and pause things, but as always we continue to learn and evolve to get better. So here's where we're at going into my draft on Sunday as next one up. 1) First, let me introduce @Shankster as the newest team owner in the Stud division. Last night led to one owner quitting the league and walking out midway through the draft due to an unforeseen issue. Luckily we had a guy who was willing to roll with the punches and we're happy to have Shanks aboard. 2) As far as that owner, I'll say only this. We are doing this primarily for fun, this isn't a million dollar contest or something along those lines. We as commissioners understand frustrations, but showing an inability to roll with punches isn't going to bode well for your chances at winning fantasy football or friends in real life. 3) Something we learned in the chat quickly is that if you have some things checked off in communications, you're going to get an email of every pick in the draft. Here's how to change that. First, click here. This will take you to your contact page. Scroll down to the send email for group and uncheck draft status updates and when i'm on the clock. Then click Save Franchise Info. 4) In a effort to minimize the chance of a missed pick or bad auto-pick, fill in your work list, even if you plan to be at the draft for the whole draft. You can do that at this link. Hell, if you're feeling froggy, you can pre-pick players for your draft if you want. 5) After seeing the Fantasy Shark's drafting coach in action last night for a couple of teams, you should feel safe with them if you're going to autopick. Also, if you know you're not going to be available, go into the live draft room and click the I'm Away option under the player list, so that way we can move quickly through your pick instead of waiting the full 2 minutes. 6) How much time should you factor for the draft. Well, last night the Stud division, with a pause and a few autopickers took 1 hour and 45 minutes to complete the 14 rounds. Maybe we can be faster now that we know a little bit more about how to make things work better, who knows. But factor at least 2 hours. 7) For ease of access in case things go wrong, a fellow commissioner will be shadowing the other drafts just to make sure any things that need to be done as far as pauses or tech issues can be resolved with as little controversy as possible. So that's it. I look forward to Sunday night for my draft, it should be a fun one, especially as today and tomorrow are cut down day... gonna learn some things about roster construction this weekend!
  20. Don't feel bad Rev, today Arians said Rojo is his starter! For now
  21. In all honesty, I don't know a league like that. I know such options existed years ago, but everyone's kinda gelled to the current standard formats.
  22. I mean, this assumes that the balls I may be considering all vary in price, which I guess was my bad from the post. I'm considering 3 balls for my bag going forward, Pro V1X, Tour B-XS, and Z-Star XV, maybe a 4th if a DTC brand like Snell or Oncore holds its value well in the test but it has to blow me away because due to lack of availability, for me I can't commit a large amount to something I just have never played or trusted. The price difference between these balls is a span of what, 8 dollars top to bottom during the season, which is shorter for me being the northeast and with the various deals presented with the buy 3 get 1 and what not, they really average out to similar cost so even factoring in how True Cost is divided, I can't imagine a huge swing here, plus I'm dealing with pretty consistent brands as far as past results and tests go.
  23. You sure can, might be a touch different than the web page, but you can!
  24. Also, True Value is going to really change how I look at golf balls, because I'm looking to stretch my dollar and not sacrifice performance along the way. It's a really interesting metric to determine value and something that I'm greatly going to appreciate.
