Default England Premier Fantasy Football - Players Wanted

Ok, I thought about putting this in the Fantasy talk section under 'Other Fantasy Sports' but there hasn't been a post in that thread in a year. I thought this might be the best place to gets views and garner interest.

I've always played the salary cap leagues on Yahoo (defunct) and ESPN but those got boring and I figured a draft would be more exciting.

Since this might be most peoples first time drafting a EPL team, I'd propose to do a small amount and give away cash, jersey prizes. Maybe $20-25 per person.

PLEASE POST BELOW IF YOU ARE INTERESTED!

Host site: www.playtogga.com (one of the only sites to have an online draft)
Draft: TBA, online
Entries: 8-12
Draft Format: Each team drafts sixteen (16) players from the English Premier League onto their fantasy squad. Managers may draft players in any configuration but must draft at least one goalkeeper, three defenders, three midfielders and one forward in order to field a valid formation.

Players may draft a maximum of:

3 Goalies
8 Defenders
8 Midfielders
6 Forwards

We are still working to implement flexible formations, but are targeting GW1 to have this feature live. All users should draft their team with the understanding that flexible formations will be ready soon! Those formations are:

5-4-1
5-3-2
4-5-1
4-4-2
4-3-3
3-4-3
3-5-2

Entries:

2. Sluismcfc - joined, paid
3. Bhiguera - joined, paid
4. Angus Con - joined, paid
5. dvincenti - joined, not paid
6. Base (friend of mine) -joined, paid
7. dpo - joined, paid
8. Manufootyguru - joined, paid*

Default EPL Fantasy

Sounds interesting. How about allowing a limited # of reinforcements from La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga... (maybe a total of 5, no more than 2 from any one league or team)?

I think that many players from EPL may get tough unless one follows the EPL. There just are not that many Brazilians available to draft in EPL....

This site only allows EPL players to be drafted. There is no site that combines all the top leagues in Europe.

Interested as well
Perhaps a note to the site to see if they are willing to expand beyond EPL. If one wanted true fantasy soccer, what better way that to include any player from any league in the world?

In any case, back to EPL, sure, why not

I see two sides with that. It would definitely be cool to have a Europa Super team, no doubt. But the leagues are not the same in terms of quality so that's where the uncertainty lies.

Anyone else?

A bit off topic, but, in the past 3 years, Euro Cup finals, 5 of the 6 finalists, and 3 of the 3 winners from La Liga. UEFA Champion Portugal......

I agree that in Spain, Italy, France and Germany, Holland, it is a "Big 4, Little 16" League, whereas EPL is more balanced, but, I took that into account when making those reinforcements..

I will concede that Ronaldo and Messi would not get hat tricks once a month in the EPL, though.

Also, some prizes for the league (jersey & cash) (will update the jersey list during the season)

Anyone else?

The season is approaching, next Saturday is kickoff. Chances are slim at the moment but with a serious flurry, we can make this happen

I'd like to draft on Thursday evening if possible.

It can be done with multiple logins/accounts but it wouldn't be fair. I might be able to get 8 with a few friends.

Anyone else?

Ok, I'm closing this league off at 8. We are less than 4 hours to drafting and to obtain another 2 people could be tough.

See you guys at 8pm!

Hi all,

I ended up refunding all the players involved. I usually have no remorse for people that enter these leagues and come unprepared or do not know how to use a simple portal, but in this case, this SITE WAS F-UP!

I'm sorry for wasting anyones time and I know I won't be wasting my own time with the site until they clean it up.
