Inspired by GEDL: The Early Bird Special

Postby Cult of Dionysus » Tue Apr 16, 2019 1:18 am

Based upon some discussions that took place within the 2019 GEDL Early Draft thread and some private messages, it sounds like there is a strong demand for a league that offers a similar pre-NFL Draft experience. To that end, I would propose that those of us who like the concept band together and form a DLF-based league.

I would propose that such a league be relatively standard (except for Superflex, though isn't Superflex basically "standard" these days) and that it be FREE.

I have taken the liberty of putting together a basic league, but am of course very open to an changes/improvements that league members want to suggest and agree upon. I would suggest that there be a minimum post count for any members... perhaps 250, just to keep the riff-raff out. Just kidding on the "riff-raff" bit, we all had to start somewhere. But the 250 limit does apply, unless we get really desperate.

From what I understand, the current (and tenative) sign-up sheet looks like this:

1. Cult of Dionysus
2. Bot101
3. Friction
4. FantasyFreak
5. Ice
6. Tresskid84
7. AZK
8. Phaded
9. Meurah
10. Valhalla (not sure if you just like the idea, or are interested)
11. Clarion Contrian
12. Pet_Smith
13. ToddFarthouse
14. DJeternal2
15. BigBawseRoss
16. ???

Anyone else wanna push this to 12?

Also shyly raises hand.... I'm on UK time though, so don't mind if you want to avoid timing issues and get enough without me. Love the idea of a league with a pre-draft draft though :)

I have always wanted to be in a league with DLFers.

Free is my jam.

I'm in.

Also... 1 or 0.5PPR? Or non-PPR?
I'm in regardless, just curious.

Just throwing my name in Incase you decide to take a low post count candidate. Dedication is not a problem at all. Been on the forum for 4years now and in 2 dynasties for 6+ years, I just don’t comment much because I really just gather info from multiple trusted sources and make opinions from there. Not alot of original thought provoking comments to share, unless I’m allowed to claim some of Turcox’s mindbenders....in which case I’m hall of fame level post count!

Excellent idea. Everyone loves this pre-NDL draft stuff. You'll get some quality owners for sure.

I have too many responsibilities already, or else I'd be joining this as well. FWIW, Cult runs quality leagues.

FYI the link doesnt work.

I'd love to join but unless the startup doesnt start until June I'll have to pass (due to commitments). You can put me on the waiting list for orphans next year. ;)

I'd be interested in this. Always thought a predraft league would make the actual draft even more interesting or disappointing depending on how things go. lol
