    I'd like to hear the story on that. Looks like a Callaway Epic flash possibly 

    Not much of a story. Doing some training, hit one shot sounded funny. Setup hit a second and sounded worse. So put it down and saw a cracked crown. Taking it to the shop and looks like Callaway may replace it or repair?

    Oh it's a Epic Sub Zero OG

    Couple of things:

    For those of you sending me trade offers, I apologize if I haven’t sent back a reply along with the decision. I’ll do a better job at that so you know what’s going on. I don’t regularly check the forum during the week. My new teaching job has made me in the evenings making dinner, doing some work and maybe a little Clash of Clans before bed. I don’t check anything else. You can contact me through Fantrax chat as I have the notifications on and Slack once I figure out how to join. 

    As for trading, I believe no player is untouchable and welcome offers. But as we haven’t seen a game yet I’m holding off until I can see my team in action and re-evaluate from there (unless the offer is just amaze balls!). As of now I like my team (even though I was late on the QB train) and would like to update my receiving core. 
     

    Does anyone have the Slack channel name so I can join? I haven’t been able to find it anywhere!

    This is my first foray with Fantrax, and am still getting use to it and all its features and using a FAAB system. 
     

    What’s everyone’s opinions on the recent acquisitions of players that used so much FAAB? It’s hard to evaluate how much a player is worth and if you’re wasting your money. Guess it doesn’t do you any good if you have any FAAB left at the end of the season anyway. 
     

    Thanks for reading and letting me squabble. I look forward to the season and what a 58 team league is like season long!!

    I see your team in circus league but not the main one...

    I have?  What’s your team name so I stop if your not interested?

    Serves as a good reminder to make sure all teams put in (---) their mgs tag.... Yes that includes me which I'll be doing shortly.

    I’ve never seen waivers this close to the first game….it’s crazy.

     

    I think I’m the only team in the league that hasn’t done a trade 😂

    There are a lot of teams that have yet to trade which is all good! Definitely not something that is for everyone. I made most my moves before the draft and one after. I have a few offers out there, but I'm happy with my roster and won't be going crazy because I've constructed a solid team so far which should be okay? 

    That being said I am still open to offers and will do my best to either counter OR give a reason in the comments why I did't accept the deal. I still would like to buy a WR4, but feel more will options and so on will come from waivers.

    Look, I'm going to put this out there, this isn't like a commissioner message, a gripe or anything else, just an observation from someone watching on in both slack-jawed amazement and continued enraged bafflement.

    I don't want to hear anyone saying when @blackngold_blood has a good record and is making a playoff run about how good a manager he is this time. He torpedoed his draft, has no FAAB to spend, and yet people continue to engage with the man in trade talks so he can continue to basically tank his draft and roster knowing he can get away with it because you all want to be wheelers and dealers...

    I get it, fantasy football is a long slog and sometimes patience isn't everyone virtue, but you had one of the better fantasy minds on this board at a huge disadvantage and then you let him off the hook for no reason other than your own want to try and upgrade and @blackngold_blood, to his credit, does the best Sun Tzu impression of any fantasy player I've ever seen finding opportunity in any bit of chaos.

    You could have had him dead to rights and yet, like the Road Runner, he continues to turn our owners into his personal Wyle E. Coyote's. It is impressive and annoying at the same time.

    I will say that (I know this wasn't possible), but had waivers been sooner we would have seen a lot different situation. Rosters would have been filled and teams wouldn't have felt the need to do some of the trades which they have done. The good (and bad) thing is goodness only knows what can and will happen with injuries and the like so truly nobody has won it or for that matter is out of it yet.

    I’m actually nervous that my bids are so low but am having a hard time justifying big bids for anyone out there

    I decided on an amount I wanted going into the season and decided to spend the rest if possible. I think I've put out enough to get all who I want but who knows. 

    Honestly my bigger concern is that it runs properly as we had a couple issues in golf with priority settings. That being said I will take a screenshot of mine before as well just in case. 

    Thankfully there are a LOT of good names out there and a lot of good players to fill in rosters, plus I hope trading pick back up after a little. Still lots of moves to be made for some teams. 

  7. Feels like forever since the draft and waivers... I'm extremely interested to see how much many are dropping on players tomorrow. I have a feeling there will be some empty budgets after tomorrows waiver run.

  8. Awesome to have you and thanks for joining the MGS forum with this AMA. I've seen the reviews before and have been curious about them even with me being a lefty. My question is how much do asthetics play a part in the wedges you have designed? They are very unique looking wedges and may not suit everyones eye, that being said should raw numbers simply outweigh that or will  the way something looks always play a significant if not larger role then the numbers?

  9. TRADES! 
    Keep note that if a trade is accepted by ANY team and involves a player you have in any pending trades offers it will be removed. This is something that happened in golf, so you can sometimes miss out on trade offers. However if you go to transaction history and include deleted trades it will show you what had been offered. This way even though it wont show in your pending you will still be able to see what was offered to you and give you a chance to resend the offer or counter if you like. 

    Also we have made note of this before in golf, but with so many new players good to say here as well. If you do not want to trade or have no interest in trading a certain player a few things can be done. One: post here and say so, makes it so you wont get offers when you just want to stick with your current roster. Two: Update your trade black, in the comments you can say player X or Y is untouchable and finally USE THE COMMENT section when declining a trade. None of us want to send offers to a team that have no interest in trading, saves us time and you so a simple yeah I'm good with my team or whatever you want to say will often suffice. Side note sending a ridiculous counter is not the best answer even if you think it may be funny. 

    With that happy trading everyone and hope you have your waivers ready! I'm slightly terrified of how much is going to be spent.

    Something weird going on with the current Sub70 testers wanted thread. The thread says 0 comments, but there are comments. And I get notifications of new comments, but when I go to the page they aren't loading. It doesn't show any comments have been made in the last 20 hours or so, but I can see that people are making them in my notifications from following the thread. Odd stuff. 

    I see all the comments on my end. I do notice that is says 0 and wonder if this is part with the comments having not been split yet. I'll send it off to our dev and see if they have an answer for it. I can confirm I see all the comments though.

    I was wondering if anyone has tried the new 2021 Maxfli Tour balls. I've played the 2019 model and really like it. If someone has already ask this apologize for posting

    No need to apologize, but check this out!

    Also their final reviews will be coming out shortly. (Keep in mind the star rating is incomplete at the moment too)

  12. Draft Recap
    I have to say that was certainly a first for me. A 58 team draft in football. Big shout out to the commissioners for putting it on and adapting throughout (selection clock) to assist speeding things up and making it not last till well now when I'm posting this. Certainly helpful moving it down to 20 seconds and something I will be voting for in the future!

    The draft started pretty much as we expected with CMC, Cook and Kamara all off the board in a row. Aaron Jones was the first blip when he was taken by @ghost_32 breaking the Henry train that was going on. This seemed to break draft loose and we saw our first WR in Davante Adams go to @Jhigdon13 at 18. With the 19th pick @juspoole again broke trends jumping on QB selecting Mahomes. For the next 18 picks we saw RB's fly off the board and before we knew it Elliot, Ekeler, Jones, Taylor were all gone. Scatter in a few Chubb and Gibson and RB was looking pretty thin after 37 picks. 
    Our first TE drafted was of course Kelce going to @Micah T... 7 picks later all 4 copies were taken. 
    Breakdown:

    12 - RB's ... all the big names and then some.
    2 - QBs (Mahomes & Brady)
    3 - WRs (Diggs, Hill, Adams)
    1 - TE (Kelce)

    Round 2 followed similar patterns with being heavy on RB in most places, scattered with high quality WR along with a few surprises. Mark Andrews was the 2nd TE taken 81st overall before Waller and Kittle. Josh Allen was first selected 84th.
    Breakdown:

    8 - RBs (Harris, Gibson, Mixon, CEH, Carson, Swift, Montgomery, Jacobs)
    3 - QBs (Allen, Jackson and Mahomes)
    8 - WR (Diggs, Hill, Ridley, Hopkins, DK, Brown, Allen, Jefferson)
    3 - TE (Waller, Kittle, Andrews)

    Round 3 followed a lot of the same trends as round 2. With so many RB's gone we see some names that aren't as normal to see in round 3... however this isn't a normal draft either. 
    Breakdown

    7 - RB (Gaskin, Davis, Jacobs, Sanders, Robinson, Montgomery, Swift)
    5 - QB (Prescott, Murray, Jackson, Wilson, Allen)
    10 - WR (Brown, Allen, A. Robinson, Godwin, Lamb, McLaurin, Julio, Cooper, Woods and Evans)
    0 - TE! Notta one... 

    Round 4 at a glance looks like most were content with their RB's and decided they wanted to jump for value on other positions. We also saw our first kicker off the board at 197th overall! A lot of good value picks here and certainly some tough decisions had to be made. All in all a golden round for players and this was a round I wish I had been able to snag a extra pick or two in. 
    Breakdown:

    6 - RB (Davis, Edwards, Gaskin, Williams, Mostert, Henderson)
    3 - QB (Rodgers, Prescott, Wilson) 
    11 - WR (Kupp, Woods, Cooper, Godwin, Thielen, Evans, Jeudy, Jones, Johnson, Moore, Lockett)
    3 - TE (Pitts, Hooper, Hockenson)
    1 - K (Tucker)

    Round 5 we again had a run on RB and remaining TE. The final copy of Prescott was scooped up at 253 by @mwr57and we also see another kicker and a defence come off the board. Surprisingly this is where I often see a lot of second tier QB start to go off the board, but I was impressed by the patients the entire league showed on this. 

    Breakdown:

    8 - RB (Edmonds, Hunt, Edwards, Mostert, Henderson, Harris, WIlliams, Sermon)
    2 - QB (Herbert, Prescott)
    6 - WR (Higgins, OBJ, Jeudy, Chase, Aiyuk, Shenault)
    4 - TE (Pitts, Hockenson, Andrews, Thomas)
    1 - K (Butler)
    1 - DEF (LA Rams)

    From here on out we had a lot of fillers, Round 6 included some similar names to round 5 completing all their copies and we finally see the 2nd Brady come off the board 260 picks after the first one. More QB's start coming off the board as well as a few more defences and what I would classify as sleeper RB. At this point in the draft RB and WR isn't amazing. There are still solid players for sure, but they are clearly in a tier below the previous rounds. 

    Round 7, 8, 9, 10 are all very similar in most teams are filling out their rosters as best they can and auto picks are doing their thing. Lots of Kickers from round 8 on and several solid QB's taken who have upside but the floors are troublesome in a few cases.

    Of course there are some picks I liked more then others and autodraft plays a part, but most teams drafted well with not too many reaches. Of course we all reach for names we like or have a gut feeling about, however a solid draft considering the amount of teams we had.  

    All in all we had 580 picks with @dlow206 starting and finishing his draft with Rb snagging up Tony Pollard with the final pick. 

    Now onto the craziness of waivers and having never had this system for football it will be curious who spends what on who and how many will break the bank to fill their rosters and how many will hold off in the hopes of being able to bid that little extra when injuries happen of which they are bound to.

    I'm so sorry but I want to make sure I have this waivers thing correct, each week all FAs are pooled and we bid.  Find out Wednesday who got each one based on blind bids, correct? Rinse, repeat for the next week. 

     

    I haven't done Fantasy since 1st year of college and this is all a bit new 😂

    You are correct!
    Players after waivers run are free to pick up until their game starts. As soon as the game starts they are locked and available for bidding and therefore waivers the next week. 
    So Thursday games (and therefore players) will lock earlier then Monday games/players.

    When will waiver run?  Tried to pick up a kicker and it said Sept 8?

    That's when it runs. After it runs all players are free agents and first come first serve.

  15. I won't commit to doing recaps for football because life is going to get busy and don't want to dive into something I can't follow through on. That being said I will look to do a draft recap post later today/tomorrow morning. 
    Some interesting teams and some interesting picks.
    Thanks to everyone who made it to the draft and for those who had to auto draft hope your teams went as you planned... I did see a few that went a bit off the rails.
    Looking forward to waivers plays out and seeing some full squads. I am happy with my team so far overall even though I felt caught on a few picks (sometimes with too many good options and often with not enough great options), however feel I have a solid core to build on and will look to make a few moves in the coming days.

    I would prefer not to have to sweat out Sunday fellas. Although if I lose Rory could at least win the whole thing. 

    I would definitely prefer it come down to the wire regardless of who wins!

    Looks like my team forgot to show up to East Lake

    Still a LOT of golf left.

    If this was to continue as is I would make up 62 points on BNG and still be 3 points shy 😞 need to gain 17 points per round which is a tall order and that doesn't include the others who are also having good weeks.

    I had real trouble last year in the draft understanding what players were off the board with multiple copies. Any tips?

    We didn't have copies for football? We had our divisions, i think this is the first time for copies in football. Truthfully no idea, but I don't remember it being tracked for Golf. Best I can suggest is players you want make a spreadsheet and if they are picked make a mark or some sort by them.

  19. Even though I'm happy with my first trade off picks i an still open to offers if anyone is looking to move some more. If be happy to trade a 6 and 8 to move into 5 if anyone liked that or maybe trade my current 2nd for a 3rd and 4th as mentioned before depending on where they are in the round.
