    Re-Starting The BZFL

    If there's enough interest from the owners, I will volunteer to sim the games and get our league started back up again. We can keep the same rosters as before all this nonsense happened. I just have to get an accurate spreadsheet from Franklin or I'd have to go through all of the transactions and piece together the rosters.

    So, who's up for getting the league back on track?

    Re: Re-Starting The BZFL

    Didn't see this email until now. I would again but it looks like everyone else doesn't anymore. That doesn't surprise me considering the amount of time that went by and the way it ended to begin with.

    My team was set to run for the title for years to come. Was in great cap shape and had about 12 draft picks and 5 out of the first 50. Oh well.

    Re: Re-Starting The BZFL

    Nah, Im done with that.
    I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?"
    "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet.
    You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times."
    It was all
    true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach.
    He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can
    mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.

    Rich, if you are looking for another league, let me know, there might be an opening in the BAFA league. PM me if you are interested.

    Well, looks like we have a couple people interested. If we have to go w/ an all new group, I can probably bring in a few newcomers as well.

    Re: Re-Starting The BZFL

    For those guys showing interest...thanks. That means a lot and I again apologize for what happened to the original league. After I got laid off I really didn't have time to keep it going. Now, I work two full time jobs and as much as I would love to bring the league back or even just be an owner there is no possible way for me to do it...and truly, I feel bad about that.

    Don't feel bad. There is more to life than this stuff. There are TONS of Sim leagues on web that people can join, and because of you, I'd say at least 3 leagues were created. If you hadn't have brought us into it, we wouldn't have known about it.

    I should beat you just for showing up in this thread. Get lost.

    Looks like we may be going w/ a whole new crew of owners or mostly new. We'll get started w/ the offseason activities once the new player rankings are released.

    I would potentially be interested in this if somebody would be willing to fill me in some more on details and how much of a time investment on average we're talking about!

    Like I said before, I'm very interested. I figure I devote quite a bit of time to my Madden franchise and this would be potentially more rewarding/more fun since I'd be playing with actual people.

    Feel free to peruse this forum to see what it all entails. I'm hoping to avoid redoing all of the rosters, as that would be very time consuming. To stock all the teams, the draft is 'bout 55 rounds. Most teams are pretty much even, so if everyone agrees, we can all keep what we have to date. If not, we'll set up a brand new stocking draft. Other than the free agent and rookie drafts, there's not a whole lot for the owners to do, other than anything they'd like to do in the way of trades or other moves. It can be time consuming, especially @ the start, but it's also a lot of fun.

    personally, the stocking draft is a blast.

    I'm definitely interested in this again. I was just looking at many of my players that I drafted in the rookie draft and FA draft and my team would have done pretty good this year.
