HI!

We all get a little busy, but NBA time is right around the corner. It is time to kick it into gear so we can draft in 1-2 weeks. A few great members have taken a break, a few were jettisoned out of town. We have quite a few spots that need filled, but we won't just take anyone.

2012-13 Final Standings:

1. Pistol Pete
2. DZW
3. Sky
4. PLR
5. Rameek
6. STAT
___
7. Iamgine
8. B4L
9. Bird
10. OJ Mayo
11. Vapid
12. Sizz
______
13. Truth
14. DurantMVP?

__________________________________________________ _______________

Confirmed 2013-14 Premier League Members

1. PLR
2. Meek
3. Stat
4. Iamgine
5. B4L
6. Bird
7. Sizz
8. Pistol Pete
9. Oj Mayo
10. Sky

Questionable 2013-14 Premier League Members:

11. Vapid

Previous League Members out:

1. DZW (Retired)
2. Truth (Automatically sent to minors)
3. DurantMVP (Automatically sent to minors)


__________________________________________________ _______________


So it looks like we will have anywhere between 3-8 spots open. I'm going to guess it will be between 4-5.

One of the spots automatically goes to the winner of the 2012-13 Minor Leagues.

The other spots will be voted on by current members. I want to get this done quick, so please fill out the following application if you want in.

League rules:

- H2H format
- Standard 9 catagories
- Daily lineup changes
- 14 teams (6 make playoffs)
- 3 moves a week (not counting trades)
-- You are able to trade moves before the trade deadline.
--- You are not able to give away moves or send 2 or more future moves for 1 current move
-Moves reset manually by commish or asst commish on Sunday at 12:00 am PST
- Previous champion gets to choose his draft pick
- The rest of the draft order will be manually randomized a few days before the draft

In. Why is the three time defending champ not confirmed?
He is in. Just wasn't sure how much time he could commit considering he will be in Columbia,etc for a big chunk of the season.

Right now it looks like we will need 3-4 new faces considering 1 spot is taken by the Minors Champ. Sky is being a diva and Vapid sucks/has gone AWOL.

I want IN

As the 1st ever ISH Premier Champion and the Fantasy Basketball GOAT I have a few desires/conditions before I make my return:

- I get my spot automatically returned because I never lost it according to the rules to begin with

- I am the commish because I started this league, this league is my league

- Statman32 is OUT




Though not necessary, but as a bonus please reserve the 1st spot of the draft while you are at it for me too. Doesn't matter though I'm winning with any spot in the draft (except the last 9, 10, 11 and 5)

:roll:

Time away from you makes every new post I see classic.

As commish, I have made the final decisions.

1. You CAN return without a vote. You did not finish in bottom 2, so you still have a spot in the league.

2. You will NOT be the commish. I will appoint you the position of Secretary to the Asst. Commish , Baseketball4life. You will assist him in any responsibilities handed to him.

3. Statman32 is not only IN, but he will be watching you 24-7 to make sure you do not attempt to cheat, or tank.

4. Your draft spot will be randomized with everyone else, sans the defending champion. As defending champion, Pistol Pete has chosen to have the first pick in the draft.

Demand #1 Yes, by rule you get your spot back

Demand #2 you are not commish, not this year at least after time away from league it wouldn't be fair to rest of league

Demand #3 There is no reason for that, Statman has been a model manager the past 3 seasons since you left and hasn't finished bottom 2 either

What kind of disrespect is this to the creator/CEO/founder of this league? Secretary of the Assistant? Is that how CEOs and Founders are treated now? :facepalm



3. Statman32 is not only IN, but he will be watching you 24-7 to make sure you do not attempt to cheat, or tank.


More disrespect to the Fantasy GOAT. Cheat? TANK? :facepalm





Fine if I'm not going to get all 3 of my wishes granted, at least 2 of them. Either make me commish or kick Statman32 out. The bottom-line is I'm not going to play in a league with Statman32, and if I am I better be commish.

I am the Fantasy GOAT and created this league so you guys have to listen to me.

Lol Glove you have your spot. Commish is stat he is great at organizing and keeping the league going, he has also been very fair past 3 years and a model member we have no reason to boot him. You will NOT be treated unfairly everyone in this league is treated the same. There is nothing to worry about you either want to play or don't want to play simple as that. If you are indeed GOAT then play and prove it, of course stat would watch you 24-7 since you had 3 teams in this league the 1st and 2nd year of its creation (which I believe is why you got booted). But now you won't have that, we know, and you will be treated fairly.... there is really no excuse to not play, unless of course your skill fell off?

Lol 3 teams in a league? 1st of all that was season 1 and it was 2 teams not 3. 2nd of all, the other guy gave me his team and then without making a single move I gave up his team to the league. So really where is my fault in that? :facepalm
And yeah I got kicked out of the league after season 2 not 1, in which I did nothing wrong. So really there was no reason (besides Statman wanted me to leave) for me to get booted. And you are justifying that now?

I am going to stick by my claims that I either want to be commish or have Statman32 kicked out of this league, or both. Nothing unreasonable. I deserve to be commish this is my league. And nothing unreasonable for the kicking Stat out request either, after all he did the same.

I don't recall you being booted for no reason, as I recall it was for a cheating offense... someone else can clarify since I don't remember for sure either way.

I wouldn't mind you being commish, however I doubt anyone in the league would want to replace a great commish in STAT (the past 3 seasons) when he's done a good job... let alone someone who has been away from the league for 3 years taking over. "If it ain't broke don't fix it" Stat is a great commish and if you play this year you will see. Everyone in the league has the same rights and privileges as the next guy... so "being commish" is really pointless and tedious... it's pretty much a huge hassle for nothing that Stat has willingly taken on and done a great job with.

The league also has zero reason to boot Statman, has he is a chief reason the league is still going strong and he has not been involved with ANY cheating or ANY collusion or ANY wrongdoing.

Your first demand will gladly be obliged of automatic spot, the other stuff I doubt you'll get people to agree because it simply doesn't make sense :pimp:

Disrespect? I would consider it respect. I just named you to the 3rd highest position in the Premier League. Take pride in it.

Cheat? Yes. You were kicked out of the league for making a bet, not following through, and committing questionable acts. I will watch you just as much as I watch Skywalker who has done the same.

I will treat you fairly, you will not have trades vetoed unless proof of tanking is involved. Act within the rules, and we will not have a problem. You can troll all you want, but cheat or attempt to acquire 2 teams? You are out.

and
The Creator/Founder of this league

Its like calling Bill Gates the "secretary to the assistant" thats respect? :facepalm

Oh please, don't say "you were kicked out of the league blah blah", you know it was only YOU who wanted me out of the league. You started a thread "Statman32 or Glove20", and had a vote-off between me and you. If it was the league, it would've been "Should Glove_20 return or not", but no, it was a vote-off between me and you. The only reason I left was because you wanted me to leave no cheating or any of these other allegations.

Out of curiosity, which bet did I lose?

Almost everybody wanted you out, and not one person wanted you in. Why do you think you only had one supporter this whole time? That same supporter who understands my importance as Commish.

Lol nice revisiting some old wounds, and I can surely say I am not playing with Statman32 again either UNLESS I am Commish. Which is the only way I'm insured a spot (because he was able to do all of the above while not being commish, commish is my only way to protect myself)

Y'all are beating a dead horse, Glove if you want to play then play. If not then don't very simple. Stat is here to stay, he's been a constant for the past three years and I think everyone in the league enjoys what he has done for us. He will not treat you or anyone else unfairly - that's all that should matter to you and everyone else. If you don't want to play then just don't play, but if you don't want to play because you think you'll be mistreated you are mistaken - badly.

Also on your bet thing the reason everyone didn't care that you were booted Glove, was because you and Stat made an official bet that involved the LEAGUE. You guys made the bet, officially, and the loser of the bet was to leave the league. You lost the bet, it was official, and it was about the league... you had to leave period. If you guys bet something else that didn't have to do with the league or leaving it then of course you wouldn't have been forced out of the league. Next time bet money, or something else not a spot in a league. Of course everyone was okay with you being removed, you lost an official bet about the league. Anyway I'm done here.

I went back looked at old threads, and the bet was nothing like that. It was based on a weekly matchup, if Statman32 won he would get a player from my team ranked 50-100, and if I won I would get one from his team. The commish (sizzle) didn't approve of the bet and said he would not enforce it. I didn't go through with the bet for the integrity of the league (if everyone started doing this....). Sizz didn't enforce it. That was it. Can't believe someone who makes bets like this is the commish of this league LMAO

But once again, like you said, you are beating a dead horse

Yep. I actually suggested we should see if Glove wanted to play this year. He is a pain, but also fun and a decent manager.

Oh well. Seems like he is just afraid to lose. Moving on....

Yeah as much as I want Glove in the league and everyone else would welcome him to he simply doesn't want to play. No one is worth that much hassle not Glove, Pete, Stat, Me, PLR, or anyone.

this guy is commish? :roll:
I don't need to say anything else about the past.


Lol nice revisiting some old wounds, and I can surely say I am not playing with Statman32 again either UNLESS I am Commish. Which is the only way I'm insured a spot (because he was able to do all of the above while not being commish, commish is my only way to protect myself)

I guess you won't be in the league then.

Still have that spot to fill.

How often would you be able to chat about trades/basketball? (hrs/week)
During the season I'd say around 2 hours a day, that's excluding the other 2 hours I put in spamming Warriors game threads.

Do you enjoy trading or would you rather stick with the team you drafted?
I do enjoy trading, especially with the so called experts that pull off some of the worst trades ever.

Are you opposed to vetos? Only if necessary.

Do you have a problem with any of the rules listed above? No.

Have you previously been a member of the Premier League? No.

If no, please provide a link to your fantasy history. I would, but I have different nicknames for every league I've played. I never ended below the winner of the consolation ladder.

Why should we let you join the most competitive, active and enjoyable fantasy basketball league? I'm active, I'm competitive, and I'm a long time player of fantasy. I want to play with some of the best, lets get it on.

That being said, is anyone here interested in a slow draft at the the forum here. I new league with 10-12 teams, roto, using yahoo?

Several years ago I was unfairly booted out. I suffered much in this loss. Last year I admit I asked too much in compensation for these sufferings including taking over as commish of the league and kicking Statman out. This year I ask nothing but......let me choose my own pick. Ok champ gets his pick, let me choose after that. Thanks.

The Fantasy Basketbal GOAT is returning either way


But for all my sufferings the past years I am requesting this as a compensation. Just a request.





Either way I'm in to win and coming back as the Dark Knight to put people in their places and remind them what true greatness really is

I'm requesting to play this new player called 'Glove' every week. You see, I'm in Europe these days where access to NBA coverage is non existent. In order to claim my 4th title, I'm going to need a BYE into the playoffs. What easier way to secure a BYE then having an undefeated season. I figure I can autodraft, leave my roster for months, and secure 21 consecutive wins over this new guy who clearly doesn't have any chance. In exchange for these 21 free consecutive wins over Glove and my guaranteed place in the semi finals, I offer nothing. You have 48 hours to grant my request. Negotiating 101.

DAMON, I know you're out there, I know you'll read this. I want a real challenge. Bring your next level predictive modelling back to where it belongs. But if you don't have time, I understand, love you and hope you're well!

The Fantasy Basketball GOAT has joined


Couple of notes/questions/suggestions


1) Can we make sure the fantasy finals don't happen and coincide with the last week of the regular season? Make sure the fantasy basketball finals are decided the week before the final week of the regular season.

2) I strongly suggest switching over to Head to Head One Win. I suggested this for other leagues I was in, at first there were some doubts, but later EVERYONE was grateful we switched.

I mean seriously Fantasy Basketball is the only competition that cares how much you win by rather than a win is a win. Real-life, don't matter if you blowout a team or win a close one, a WIN is a WIN. And even Fantasy Football the most popular fantasy game just cares about the wins.

Also, our records look cleaner (7-0 (me), 4-3 (2nd place), 1-6 (Pete), 0-7 (statman)), and so on. None of this gibberish 73-98 shit.


3) Just to confirm...no vetoes? Besides for accidental or tanking shit.

I'm in the league, that's all that matters.

But it's virtually the same league - Myself, Stat, PLR, Blife, Iamgine, Sky, OJ, Sizz, Rameek, Attila, GTrain, Glove, Navid, and 1 spot to be filled.

Draft is 5 PM EST Sunday which I assume would be like 5 AM Monday morning for you, probably not ideal but if you want it, definitely your spot. In general, I'd say the entire league is less active then it was 2 years ago (noone is putting in 6-8 hour days sitting in chat anymore), but still consider it to be quite competitive and active relative to a standard league. Would love to have you no matter how much time you can invest. 10% of you still beats 110% of Glove every time :lol

I kind of feel bad for playing in this league. Ever since I left ISH I started playing in high stakes ISH Fantasy Basketball leagues. Rake in 6 digits annually just through winning fantasy basketball leagues. Super competitive people go trying to kill people over that shit. You guys will seem amateurish compared to my competition level. Its almost unfair if I play. But I have been told by some inside sources that most people despite all my domination don't consider me the Fantasy Basketball GOAT even on ISH. I have just comeback to prove a point. That there really is no one that comes close. My theme this year will just be a 1 season run as the Dark Knight coming to just reclaim my own greatness.

I kind of feel bad for playing in this league. Ever since I left ISH I started playing in high stakes ISH Fantasy Basketball leagues. Rake in 6 digits annually just through winning fantasy basketball leagues. Super competitive people go trying to kill people over that shit.

You don't rake in 6 digit yen, much less dollars. Stick to the WNBA, the Association isn't for you.
