THE LEAGUE IS NOW FULL...we'll need someone to create another league like Planet Steelers South Division. We can track total point at the end of the season between the 2 or more leagues to determine who had the better team. By default the scoring systems are the same and the best part about this is the site is FREE. PM me if you need help creating a league it's really simple. I can't create another one, if I do I get removed from my current league. Let's do this people!
**********************************************
All,

I've created a private league on CBS Sportsline for the first annual Planet Steelers Fantasy Football season! It's a 12 team league and we can create more leagues later to add more folks. It's a free league so anyone can join, I randomly selected a draft date for this league and it's automated so even if you can't draft the system will draft for you (this works out sometimes ;) ) If we get more than 12 people who are interested then we can very easily create a Planet Steelers South Division league and at the end of the season the league winner with the most points, wins or whatever we decide is the Planet Steelers Champ! We can sort out the details later, now on to joining the league.

First create your team here:

http://football.sportsline.com/splash/football/spln/single/free?source=MKTG_FFBF08_FSPOEFP&refcode=FFBF08_FSPOE

Once you sign up join our private league called 'Planet Steelers North Division' the password is planet. I'll be waiting for you guys to join so the a$$ whooping can start. Any questions please ask. In no way is this perfect but I figured we'd kick it off and improve on it from there. For those that have never played once you sign up there is a bunch of info on scoring and tips on the site. It should be fun!

Oh...please use you handle when you sign up so I know who I'm demoralizing throughout the season!

Edit: League Name Changed to Planet Steelers North Division PLEASE REJOIN!

c2k1,

I signed up, and look forward to whooping you this season.

However, I noticed that you have it set to have an automated draft. That's means the draft is entirely automated. We get to rank players before hand, but it automatically picks for everyone off of our list on draft day. We have no input that day whatsoever to make adjustments to our strategy as the draft goes along, etc. If you change it to a live draft instead, we can all pick in real time that day. If 90 seconds passes and a team does not pick, then the computer will default to your own list (or the SportsLine default list if you didn't make one yourself). I like that much better. Just a thought.

I just wasted about 30 minutes trying to sign up. I filled out the form...username, password and all that. Then went to login and the same page just keeps coming up over and over again...displaying my username and (coded) password in the login forms. I'm not logged in because every page I navigate to prompts me to sign up. When I try to login on those pages it's the same deal. I'm not sure what the issue is, but unless you can send me an invite I guess I'm out.

I seem to be having trouble even logging in. Care to look at some other free options first? I'd like to participate but sportsline simply will not let me login. I don't even get a user id or password incorrect error message. I get no indication that I'm doing anything wrong...it just won't let me login. I even tried it in IE and nothing. :HeadBanger

That's pretty odd...we can look at others if you'd like I think CBS does live scoreboards that's why I chose it. Anyone have any ideas why 'd' is having an issue?

stlrz, maybe it's happening on purpose, and designed by stanza.... :o :lol:

...Seriously though, try completely going away from it. Log-off the freakin' internet completely. Then try it again.... Sportsline has been "fickle" with me as well in the past, and this always seemed to work. But it may just be coincidence.

Well then "Art" :wink: ... I have a question for you:

If you change it to a "live" draft, what will happen if I am out on the road working when it's held?... I don't want to sign-up then get hosed because I'm at work during the draft.

stlrz d
07-05-2008, 03:31 PM
Tried all those things. Even tried signing up again. It told me "stlrz_d" wasn't available this time so I couldn't re-up under that name. Tried "stlrz_d1" and the registration worked, just like last time under "stlrz_d" and same issue. It simply won't let me login.

I'm sure Jim Nance has something to do with this! :HeadBanger

I selected this date and time...don't know if that works for all I can take suggestions:

Your league's live draft is August 16, 2008, 4:00 PM ET.

You can rank you players here so CBS will draft for you if you can't make it:

The draft is set for 8-16-08 at 4:00 p.m. EST.

If you do nothing, CBS will draft for you automatically using their own rankings. You can go in any time between now and then and re-arrange those rankings to match your personal preferences. As song as you save those settings, it should choose off of your pre-set list instead of the CBS default list.

It's not the cops you gotta worry about, it's the moochers....

I've been to probably half of the islands down there, and where you're going is not bad at all.... If you get the chance to do a "day excursion" out thru the Carribbean Sea, take it!... You'll go thru old Santo Domingo along the way to the boat, and get a chance to see where alot of the movie "Apocolypse Now" was filmed.... Pretty cool views along the way.

I'm in the same boat as you (no pun intended). How I get and go to vacations is by paying everything with a rewards card, all bills, eating out, gas, and so on. By next year my wife and I will hit up our 2nd trip to Hawaii off that card! Yup that's how I roll, points baby.

stanza, believe it or not, that is how I travel with Brenda... I put absolutely everything on my AMEX card for miles (it's just too hard to non-rev nowadays)... As for the trips, I own the condo in Myrtle, so it's a low-cost trip otherwise.... But I do make trips down to the islands every year, although I probably shouldn't. But the way I look at it is that there is no prize for having money left over when I'm dead.

...I've never been to Hawaii, and REALLY want to go sometime. But I figure I need two weeks back-to-back so as to really enjoy it... But I've been all over the Caribbean multiple times.

07-06-2008, 12:38 AM
NKY, I think we can create an unlimited number of leagues. I suspect we'll end up with 3 leagues total when it's all said and done. We'll have to figure out an 'overall' Planet FF champ between the leagues when the season is over. We could pick the winner by total points scored, win percentages, and so on in the event of a tie. The scoring system and total players starting and on the bench are identical at CBS so we should be able to make this work. The only hangup maybe is that we won't be able to see the points between the different leagues since the leagues are private, but we can simple post the total point and final scores each week in separate posts...it seems like a lot of work and we may just have to ask J for a Fantasy forum to keep the clutter on the Steelers forum down. We'll see. I'm pretty excited because the ball seems to be rolling and once the other folks start to see what has been started we may have a lot of players/leagues. Something like this should keep our site members close like a big family (even if it's dysfunctional). Obviously I'm open to suggestions...this isn't my baby I just figured it would be fun.

Sorry, you can't... At least not till it gets expanded.... There will undoubtably be another league or two from this board with the guys that don't post on weekends, and to limit it to 12 players is asking for ridicule...

There are certainly some Steelers on my list. I won't stretch for any of them. It's kind of like Madden for me. I make the best plays despite my love for the Steelers...on Madden I run with the Eagles...westbrooks speed/hands...curtis speed...fast DEs...solid secondary.

So, what are the chances that a FF rookie like myself could win this thing?

And what kind of prize...do we designate for the winner? Maybe we can talk our local Jap Lambert into a customized award sig. :D

Shawn,that's some funny sheit.

Help!!!!

Found out today I'll be working the night before and the night of our draft. Can someone please let me know how I'll be able to execute this when I'll be sleeping. Any help and advice will do. I'm suddenly reminded of that NFL commercial where the guys are speaking to this one dude who missed the draft via speaker phone and come to find out the missing guy was at his own wedding. At the end one of the guys at the draft tells the groom "You'll get, who we say you get!"

Please help me out!

You can set your preferred draft order on the site well in advance of the draft, and the computer will just automatically pick the next guy on your list for you.

I'm in the same boat as AS, and will be out of town for the draft...

... I glanced at it very briefly when I signed-up, but how "exactly" do you do it? How will it pick different positions vs top players? Is it just simply ranking the players? If so, how do you avoid getting 7 running backs and no kickers or defenses? ....Help would be appreciated...

YOU WILL GET 7 RUNNING BACKS AND NO KICKERS OR DEFENSES...AND LIKE IT!!!

Seriously, though...I haven't tried it since I plan to be present for the draft.

Perhaps the program will be smart enough to let you say you want 2 QB, 5 RB, 5 WR, etc. so it doesn't overstock you at certain positions and understock you at others, but I'm not entirely sure one way or the other. But if you end up getting hosed by the computer, I'll be open to interesting trades (*cough* in my favor *cough*) to help you round out your team. :lol:

The automated draft will fill in your roster slot for you so you don't end up with all kickers lol.

More info if you want it:



Live Draft Instructions
After you join or create a Live Draft league, you will have the opportunity to make changes to CBSSports.com's default Rank List, which is a list of all NFL players that are eligible to be drafted, ranked from best to worst by our Fantasy experts.

It is recommended that you, prior to your draft, organize the Rank List according to your own player preferences. However, you are welcome to leave the Rank List in the order our experts have provided. During the live draft CBSSports.com will use your Rank List as a backup in case your time limit expires before you make a pick (explained below).

On draft day there will be a "Draft Room" link in the Message Center on your League home page - the link is also available in the Draft Prep component of your League Home page. This link will allow entry into the draft room. During the Live Draft, each team will have 90 seconds to select an NFL player. The order of the draft will be randomly generated between midnight and 6:00 AM ET either the day of, or the day before the draft. If your league has the mandatory 12 owners as of approximately 48 hours prior to your scheduled draft date, the league will aggregate and generate a draft order. If not, your league will receive an e-mail explaining that you must have 12 owners as of 24 hours prior to your draft date. If your league does not have 12 team owners at that time, your league will be disbanded and each owner will have to join or create another league.

In the draft room, you will be able to place NFL players into a Draft Queue - which is simply a list of players, in order of priority, that you are interested in taking with your next draft pick. When it is your turn to pick, you will have 90 seconds to draft a player. If the 90 seconds pass and you have not manually selected a player, the player ranked highest in your Draft Queue will be automatically drafted. If the Draft Queue is empty, a pick will then be made from your Rank List. In such a case, the highest rated player from the Rank List will be drafted unless that position is filled - in which case the next best available option, at the next highest Ranked position list, will be drafted. The draft order will "snake" at the end of each round, meaning that the team with the last pick in the current round will have the first pick in the next round.

Waiver priority immediately after the draft will be the reverse order of the first round of the draft. So Team #12 will have the highest waiver priority and Team #1 the lowest waiver priority.

You'll find more help with the live draft in the Help Center inside your league after signup.

Automated Draft Instructions
As with a Live Draft, after creating or joining an Automated Draft league, you will have the opportunity to rank all the eligible NFL players. However, in an Automated Draft you can organize 6 Rank Lists - one list for each Fantasy position: QB, RB, WR, TE, K, DST. You will rank the players on each list in the order of your preference, with the player you'd most like to draft being #1 on a list, and so on.

You will assign these rank lists to each of the 14 rounds of your draft, based on the position you would like to draft in each round (i.e. If you feel QBs represent the strongest position, then assign the QBs rank list to the first round; if you feel RBs represent the next strongest position, assign the RBs rank list to the second round, and so on.)

As in the Live Draft, you are not required to make changes to our rank lists. If you choose not to, our default lists, which reflect the rankings of our Fantasy experts, will be used. However, if you decide to organize the lists yourself, you will have up to 24 hours prior to your draft day to do so. When there are 24 hours left until your draft day, the rank lists will be closed and considered ready for the draft.

On the morning of the scheduled draft day, an Automated Draft will be conducted. Players will automatically be drafted for you using your Rank Lists. An e-mail will be sent to each owner after the draft has been completed.

Please refer to the table below (each number in the table refers to each team's draft position for that round) for the draft order for the full 14 rounds of the draft. You'll see that the order staggers each round of the draft (Team #1 has the first pick in round 1; Team #6 has the first pick in round 2, etc.) so that each team will have the opportunity to draft 1st in a round at least once.

Round 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14
Team 1 1 8 3 10 5 12 7 2 9 4 11 6 1 8
Team 2 2 9 4 11 6 1 8 3 10 5 12 7 2 9
Team 3 3 10 5 12 7 2 9 4 11 6 1 8 3 10
Team 4 4 11 6 1 8 3 10 5 12 7 2 9 4 11
Team 5 5 12 7 2 9 4 11 6 1 8 3 10 5 12
Team 6 6 1 8 3 10 5 12 7 2 9 4 11 6 1
Team 7 7 2 9 4 11 6 1 8 3 10 5 12 7 2
Team 8 8 3 10 5 12 7 2 9 4 11 6 1 8 3
Team 9 9 4 11 6 1 8 3 10 5 12 7 2 9 4
Team 10 10 5 12 7 2 9 4 11 6 1 8 3 10 5
Team 11 11 6 1 8 3 10 5 12 7 2 9 4 11 6
Team 12 12 7 2 9 4 11 6 1 8 3 10 5 12 7

In the preseason, waiver priority immediately after the draft will be the reverse order of the first round of the draft. So Team #12 will have the highest waiver priority and Team #1 the lowest waiver priority.

Yeah, that is VERY weird. I've only ever done snake drafts.

Getting 1st pick is a HUGE advantage over getting 12th pick. The 12th guy only gets to pick one slot ahead of the 1st guy in every freaking round except for the all-important 1st round and the next-to-last round. What the?!?!

Those 3 teams get the privilege of being pummelled by me twice, as I face the same 3 Central Division rivals again in weeks 12-14. They were kind to the commissioner, allowing him a nice 10 week cushion before I destroy his team in week 11.

This was kinda neat...the results of the entire draft with a breakdown of the amount of time each person spent "on the clock" for each pick. Notice in the last round, it also includes the total amount of time each person spent "on the clock" in the entire draft. So if anyone thought the draft took too long, blame stlrz_d, who spent the most time on the clock by more than 5 minutes. I shouldn't talk, though, because I took the bronze medal here for taking the third most time, about a minute behind silver medalist AsianSteel. :lol:

Wow!.... That's all I can say.... Talk about "ironic situations", this one takes the freakin' cake... I just got back in town from vacation (obviously missed the draft due to travel itenerary), and have just thrown-up in my mouth.... Your "Friendly Neighborhood Bungle Basher" has Carson Palmer and Rudi Johnson... WTF!!!!... Now, I really don't mind having Carson, but TWO starting Bungles is just too ironic for me right now...

...My cell phone went "tango uniform" because I dropped it in the pool, my new phone is a piece of crap, my daughter twisted her ankle in a bad way, I missed hooking up with Big Lebowski (hey man, I did try...), Oscars' didn't have the game back on Thursday, and I missed it.... NOW I find that I have two Bungles on my roster....

...Does anyone want to kick my dog for good measure?..... :evil: :evil: :evil:

...Oh well, let the games begin... :wink:

Man that was a great draft yesterday and it went relatively fast. As you can see from my roster...the league is pretty much mine (don't mind the fact that both my QB's are on bye the same week)

I think your draft went similar to mine, even though you would expect #2 and #9 to be significantly different. We both got RB's in the first that had no business being there (I don't think I've seen Tomlinson get taken anywhere but first by any of the knowledgeable experts, and I fully expected Addai to go in the top half of the first round...no way he should have fallen to #9). We both got an elite WR in round 2 (T.O. and Fitz) and then were able to get a 2nd RB in round 3 that should have been taken in round 2 (Lewis and Grant). We both got one of the top TE's (Witten and Clark) and we each have a pair of solid but not spectacular QB options (Bulger & Favre and Hasselbeck & Schaub). I like my 2nd and 3rd WR's better than yours, though, even though one of mine will be suspended for the first 2-3 games (Marshall). Good job, though, man.

Sure! I'll give you Vincent Jackson for Adrian Peterson straight up. After all, we start 3 WR's and only 2 RB's, so WR is more important. Deal?

The AS rookie draft went well, even though some of my slanty picks were grabbed by others. Some of the below picks will yield huge dividends. Note my number one and two QBs.... interchangeable. My RBs are likewise. The questions are my second leveled WRs. They are contingent upon how well their team qb's fair. I agree that, on paper, Steelsun has a rock solid lineup. Good luck fellas, and if anybody is drooling at some of my below noted championship components.... drop me a PM.

OK, now that I finally have a bit of time to look at all this, I have a few questions to get started with:

1. How do we make trades with other folks in the league? ...Straight up, no waiver wire of any sort?

2. How do you dump someone on your roster and pick up a free agent? Didn't see any prompt for it.

3. Is there any limit to number of trades/week or season?

4. How do you change players on your active roster each week?

1. I don't recall where it is, but there is a spot to do this. You propose a trade and the other person can accept, decline or counter offer (I think). Once a trade is accepted the members vote on it to help ensure there is no collusion.

2. Click on the players name on your roster. You'll see.

3. Not sure.

4. Up near the top of the screen there is a "my team" link. Hover your mouse over it and a drop down menu will appear (as will happen on all of them). Click on "set lineup" and follow the steps.

What??!!...

If a trade is accepted by one player the other owners vote to approve or deny. It keeps two (or more) guys from getting together and making ridiculous trades so one guy gets the much better deal and increases his chances of winning the league.

Basically, AS can't trade BR to someone for some scrub because no one would approve it...for example. :)

AS - I only used you as an example because I know you have BR. I also know you'd never do anything like that.

Hope this helps


Transactions:
Lineup deadline is 5 minutes before gametime for each player.
Owners may set lineups.
Transactions will lock five minutes before the first game on Sunday. Players whose teams play before Sunday will be locked for the remainder of the scoring period.
Add/drops are handled by a waivers process.
The waivers process runs on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The waiver order resets after each weeks' games.
Dropped players remain on waivers for at least 1 day(s).
Trades are subject to a 1-day voting period, where at most 3 objections are allowed. Trades receiving more than 3 objections are sent to the commissioner for approval.
No trades can be made after the trade deadline of 11:59 pm et 11/14/08.

I read that I'm only a commish in name, basically the guy who started the league. CBS itself is the commish. If for some reason this trade goes through I would suggest trading back, there's no reason anyone in our league would disagree.

I just had another draft yesterday. We met up at the house of a guy that I work with, had a cookout, and drafted (it was the first time all 12 of us actually showed up for the live draft, so that was good, although one guy had to leave about halfway through).

The scoring is pretty much the same as our league (some differences with how defenses get points, but everything else is essentially the same). We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 RB/WR flex, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DST. It is a 12 team league and the draft was 16 rounds long. I picked 12th out of 12. It was the first time I ever had one of the bookend picks in a snake draft (first or last) in which you get to pick back-to-back, but then have to wait a year-and-a-half for your next pick (it seemed). I ended up with 3 of the same guys that I have in this league (Romo, Warner, Boldin), but once again, no Steelers.

Let me know how you think I did:

QB:
2.13 Tony Romo
10.109 Kurt Warner

RB:
1.12 Frank Gore
3.36 Jamal Lewis
4.37 Thomas Jones
8.85 Ricky Williams

Great RB's for picking so late. WR depth is severely lacking as I'm not sold on Curry. You can always find a good WR though on the waiver wire after the first couple weeks. I also think VDavis is going to get lost in Martz's offense, TE's never do good. Hopefully they use him kind of like a WR, but they like how he blocks too so who knows. Overall though you got a good starting squad and good stable of Running backs. That is what you want....

Overall though you got a good starting squad and good stable of Running backs. That is what you want....

Thanks, IS! The top 10 TE's were taken by the time I got around to selecting mine. I agree that Davis is a boom-or-bust prospect (Martz has never utilized a TE before, but he may be the most talented pass catcher on that roster). Luckily, I was able to get Heap as a backup, since he is steady whenever he is healthy (not too often lately, but still).

Since we only have to start 2 WR's each week instead of 3 (we can start 3 if we use a WR at our flex spot, but I usually use a RB there instead), I wasn't overly worried about WR depth.

I did not want to rely on Chad Javon Ocho Cinco as a #1 or even #2 WR, but when he was available to be taken as my #3 WR, I had to take him. He could be a tremendous value that late, but if he flames out, it was only a 7th round pick, and it is not like I am counting on him to start on a weekly basis anyway.

I think Calvin will be a beast this year, and Boldin should be quite good this now that Warner has been named the starter over Leinart.

I took Curry in the 13th, because he is a starter, and may be his team's #1 option (Jerry Porter was traded and they brought in Drew Carter and Javon Walker, but Carter was already placed on IR, while Walker was brutally beaten in Vegas in the off-season and already tried to leave the team and give back his signing bonus until Al Davis talked him out of it). I'm not the biggest Curry fan, either, but as a 4th option at WR, I could do worse, I suppose.

I almost took Sidney Rice in the 14th round so I would have 5 RB's and 5 WR's, but when I saw that Andre Hall was still available at that point, I decided to take him as a 6th RB instead (possible trade bait for the owner of Selvin Young, since Shanahan always seems to like to shuffle his RB deck for no particular reason at some point each season).

Iron Shiek
09-01-2008, 02:34 PM
Right on. I missed the part about starting 2 WR's then the flex. You are in great position then. Chad will get his, he is a stud. In this case you are in great shape.

I would make the trade. With all of the drama going on in Cincy these days, I think Ben is going to be the better QB option for you by a comfortable margin (Ben had 32 TD's and 11 INT's last season and got even more weapons in the offseason. Carson had 26 TD's and 20 INT's last season and now Housh has a hammy issue and is unhappy with his contract, Chad has a shoulder and ankle issue and is certifiably insane after changing his last name to Mexican numerals, Henry was suspended, cut, then brought back, the rookie WR's they drafted have been underwhelming, and his steady RB is now in Detroit). You have solid depth at WR in Jennings, Ward, and Burleson, so you can make that swap without worrying about any noticeable loss in production from that position. Some people even think that Roddy may be as good or better than Roy. For example, ESPN's Matt Berry has Roy as the 16th WR and Roddy as the 21st WR, but ESPN's Christopher Harris has them reversed, with Roddy as the 17th WR and Roy as the 20th WR. The only thing you have to worry about with Roddy is the impact of a rookie starting QB. Although, with Roy, you have to worry about an increased emphasis on the run with Rudi Johnson and Kevin Smith, plus the fact that his WR partner Calvin Johnson looks like he may be ready to break out as a superstar, taking away many of the passes that Roy usually was getting. Survey says...I'd accept that trade for sure. Hope that helps.

Guys, was it decided that we were going to throw $11.50 in the pot like the other board fantasy league? I think I remember it being optional whether you want to play for money or just bragging rights. Since I like both money and glory, I would like to throw whatever money that was decided upon into the hat (if I was willing to throw in $60 for my other league with the guys here at work, another $11.50 in this PlanetSteelers league doesn't hurt, eh?). Just let me know if we are using a particular PayPal account to hold the money until the end, or if I should mail a check somewhere or whatever. Thanks.

Thanks Ruthless..
I'll make the trade :wink:

And the fact that you have Ben as your avatar helps too. It is always better to root for a guy on your fantasy team that you really like anyway, than to have a guy on your fantasy team that you can't stand like Palmer. That doesn't mean that I don't draft players from our arch-rivals, but it is always that much sweeter when Ben scores a TD for the Steelers and your fantasy team as well. :D

So far you, me, and SMG are good with 11.5.

Do I have to send you anything now, or do we all just trust that we will send our money to whichever of the three of us (or more if others decide to join in) has the best record at the end of the season?

I'm giving SMG 11.50 at the end of this month when I see him. I'm one of those Neanderthals that doesn't have a myspace page, facebook, or PayPal account. But I'm in there like swimwear.

Well, then...SMG will owe me $23 at the end of the season when I obliterate both of you fools.
