Hey all. I'm looking for a few members for a new fantasy football dynasty league. I'm more active on GTZ but I wanted to put this out here as well. If you're reading this, you may already be aware of some of this but just in case, I'll go over the general idea as well as some specifics for the league. Dynasty leagues are different from redraft in that they're open year long, you can trade draft picks, and your team carries over to next year so there's a much bigger focus on being a fantasy GM and starting from scratch to build a long-term dynasty. The league opens soon after the current season ends though for the first few months you'll only be able to trade draft picks. Come may, we'll do a huge draft, about 30 rounds, over the course of 1-2 weeks. The draft will be in slow draft format, up to 4 hours per pick though usually it shouldn't take more than a few minutes or an hour if you need to research or are talking trades (you can trade draft spots before or during draft). Timer will be paused overnight. In subsequent years, since you already have your team we would just be doing a 5-round rookie draft. Very important to note that you must think long-term, you're trying to find the stars of tomorrow before they're the hot waiver wire pickup because by then, they'll already be owned. In general, you won't find too many answers off the waiver wire, you'll get your guys mainly through drafts and trades. It'll be .5 ppr, 12 teams on the Sleeper platform, with $50 buy-in and prizes for 1st-3rd place + Most Points in Weeks 1-13. Roster setup will be 1QB 2RB 3WR 1TE 3Flex 1 Superflex (ideal for 2nd qb), no kickers or defense. There will be 14-15 bench spots, 3 IR spots, and 5 taxi squad spots which is where you can stash 5 rookies (non-rookies not eligible).
That's the league in a nutshell. What I'm looking for personally are guys who are:
1) Gonna be active in the chat and with their teams. We'll have a very active chat with guys who are fun and love to talk football. Not looking for quiet guys who set their team and you never hear from them.
2) Definetly in this for the long haul. Don't just try it for a year and then leave the league in a bad spot. I understand if you're curious but in that case, I'd recommend try a keeper league instead to get a taste of dynasty and make sure it's for you before joining the real thing.
3) A good fit for a fun & easygoing culture. Basically, if you know you're a jerk or love arguments and drama, this is not the league for you. We're not always gonna agree but my goal is to get the right group to keep things fun and fair. Just to be clear though, shit talking is very much encouraged, a friendly rivalry is great, a bad apple is not.
If you're interested, please PM me and we can go from there. It isn't first come, first serve. We got half the league filled already and about 2 weeks to fill the last few spots, so I'd like to get a feel for who you are and make sure it's a good fit for both of us. And of course, any questions, let me know. Thanks!
P.S. Some people prefer taking over "orphan" teams rather than start from scratch. If this sounds appealing, let me know if you'd like to be a backup for a different Dynasty league which is going into Year 2 just incase anyone leaves.

Yeah I know. I've given the benefit of the doubt many, many times if someone's reputation is strong enough and 99% of the time there's no issue. Honestly, that's one thing I like about the other site, if you pend a trade officially and back out once it's in motion, you can be sure there's a BTR in the future that will absolutely kill your rep in a heartbeat and warn off all others who might wanna deal with them. That tends to keep people honest and is one of the main reason why I'm willing to give people who have been around the benefit of the doubt sometimes.
But yeah, definetly much safer your way cause even vets with otherwise excellent feedback can be just as rotten as any bad trader if they're in a situation where what they agreed to is no longer what's most convenient for them. Hopefully this particular guy will now have the reputation he deserves so he doesn't screw anyone else over.

Agreed. And normally I keep quiet about who does what same as you but whoever it is IMO should be addressed publicly so other users know to avoid them and it doesn't happen again. While we're on the subject of betraying trust and screwing people over, here's another recent case. I think it best to alert everyone that user "likeme" should not be trusted in any group he commits to because he does not honor his commitments. He asked for several phantoms about 3 weeks ago and the groups were set up with several members. He didn't pay right away which I let go because as a veteran who's been here for several years, you would think he'd be good for it. Far from the first time I trust a veteran who hasn't or can't pay right away and usually there's no issues there as the guys who have been around for awhile are typically very honest and responsible. Not so here.
I notified him that the games were bought. Some of the phantoms he asked for were already out so I offered them right away but he said he would like to get everything at the same time so I held them for him for 3 weeks. Yesterday when I alerted him that all games were now out or available for preloading and needed payment, he then informed me that he changed his mind and didn't want them anymore. I reminded him of his commitment and that the groups were already set, games were bought so he would be screwing everyone in the group over, espeically me who would probably wind up having to eat all the costs. I also informed him that some of the games he bought were now about 3 weeks old and it would be very tough to find someone who wants a phantom for 3 week old games as those interested likely already bought it, plus there's less of a market for phantoms in the first place. I asked him to honor his commitment, pay the amount he promised, and he can give his shares to a friend or whatever. He has continued to log in but has not responded.
As you all know, bailing on your group often hurts the others in it and should not be done. The common practice used to be, and still is with many, that if you commited but need to bail, you find your own replacement or you pay your share and take the spot anyway so as to not screw anyone else over. What makes this much worse than usual is that this was not even the dreaded last-minute bail situation, this was 3 weeks later essentially guarenteeing that a replacement can't be found. Even worse, he knew for 3 weeks that the games were bought and groups locked in and he never once told me until I brought it up yesterday. It would still be very unprofessional if he told me sooner but atleast then I'd have a better shot at finding a replacement. "likeme" is on my own do-not-trade-with list and I would suggest to anyone whose group he tries to join, espeically if you're setting things up in advance, be very wary or just pass on him altogether because he may not keep his word and he will only do what's right for him, not the group or anyone else he's dealing with. I would definetly suggest you do not add him to any groups or give him anything until he pays for it but even then, unless you absolutely need him to fill a spot, I would say you're probably much safer just going with someone else you can rely on.

Just to add to today's apparent hot topic of Jikinova...
Messaged him about this and told him why he went about it wrong and as I kinda expected, he didn't understand and was completely unapologetic. He said I should have checked sooner, I said the game comes out tuesday, nothing wrong with me not doing so until the sunday 2 days before as that's fairly common when you're busy. He said I should have messaged him about that and I reminded him that I had already told him I wouldn't be sending payment until the game was available and if anything, he should have messaged me to confirm we were still good if he thought something was wrong (it wasn't) and was about to break our deal and sell my spot to someone else without warning. I said if that's how he conducts business that's a shame and he just threw it right back completely missing the point. In this case it's fine, I can get the game elsewhere and didn't send him any money so I'm not worried about it. But since he's sending off red flags to many other members here, figured I'd shed some light on the nature of his character and how he conducts business. Confirmed he sells shares, regular and timeshare, on ebay and many other places for profit, is very comfortable breaking deals with no notice, and is pretty nasty in general instead of atleast realizing that he went about it badly. I'd say avoid as he's not honest with his word, considerate with those he deals with, nor safe with shares. He has very different views about gamesharing in general which might be fine for his other site but conflict sharply with the way most veterans here do business which is probably the reason why he's rocking the boat left and right.
Note to all new guys as I dealt with 2 bad apples in a row now who had no idea what they were doing and didn't wanna ask... it doesn't really matter how much feedback or experience you have on other sites, espeically when they're sites we never heard of, sites belonging to you (that you now say were sabotaged by a co-owner or whatever), and auction sites like ebay and amazon. If you come in with a chip on your shoulder and a bad attitude, you're gonna get exposed real fast as someone people avoid. Best thing to do is learn how we do things on CAG and adjust cause that's where you are.
EDIT: Thanks Trueblade for the reminder on how to do spoiler tags.
