Recommended Posts

So far, the 10 returning are:

 

@Virtuoso80 (Virtuoso80 - DEFENDING CHAMP)
@Rich Cannon (Kanye East)

@Juanjo (The Forever Uncleans On Tour)

@Valpo2004 (VU Cru)

@crazycolt1 (Out Of Bounds) decided not to return and @HOFClipboardHolder (HOFClipboardHolder) finished last. 

 

@Colt92 - please provide the names of the top 2 guys from the Joe's league to join our league, like the yearly tradition. 

 

Can 9 of the above 10, besides me, confirm they can commit to another season? Then, we can start discussing rule changes, when July comes around.

I'd love to play, maybe in the minors or however you guys are doing it. 

 

Great!!! Contact @Colt92 and send him a PM. 

 

It is more tradition than a testament to the player's ability since FF is a whole lot of luck anyways. :) 

 

We call our NFL.com league the Colts Forum Elite League that I manage (nothing elite about it except that it is very very competitive with the top 6 playoff rankings not decided till week 13, the week before the playoffs). The bottom 2 go to the Joe's league managed by @Colt92 and the top 2 in the Joe's league come into our league.

 

We have 10 players now and are waiting on @Colt92 to send us the top 2 from the Joe's league, go ahead and PM that user to find out if you can join. Last year, FYI, one of the Top 2 from the Joe's league, @Virtuoso80 won it all in the elite league, that is why it is just a name and tradition we retained as opposed to a true reflection of the players' abilities.

@buccolts told me he is not returning. Do any of the existing members have any issues with letting @HOFClipboardHolder play in the league even though he finished last? We have 2 members not returning - @crazycolt1 and @buccolts; hence the 11th and 12th finishes, namely me and @HOFClipboardHolder can be back.

 

Plus, @Colt92 has not gotten back to me regarding providing the top 2 players in the Joe's league. I am still waiting on that to fill those last 2 spots.

Ideally my view is that we should let the 3rd place finisher in Joe's move up when there are openings.  

 

I don't have a huge problem with it, I just think it would be more fair to move 3 up from Joes.

That makes sense. I wish @Colt92 would get back to me. Does anyone know someone who participated in the Joe's league this year?

If it takes too long maybe start a general thread about the Joes league and ask the people who played in it what the rankings were.  

 

Is @Colt92 posting or has his account gone dead?

Yo, yep I’m in :) 

 

I’m UK based, so if possible a draft earlier in the afternoon for you guys on a weekend would be preferable when it comes to organising that, but I can be flexible.

It will be whatever the group consensus is, and you will be able to chime in with your choice when the time comes. :)

How many teams is the Joe's League, and when will the drafts be?

 

I'm pretty sure it's also 12 teams.  You will have to contact Colt92 about it.  I don't think the draft time has been set yet.  

 

Typically if I remember right the drafts usually happen on labor day weekend.

@Jeff Tolle

 

Please let me know within the next week i.e. by June 30th, if you would like to be part of the Elite fantasy football league. If I do not hear from you, I will have to move on to let the spot be open for others to take. Thanks.

    • You make good points on this. The Pats have good reason to be skeptical of the Texans here.   I was more talking about the specifics of Caserio's contract that prevent him from interviewing with another team. But evidently the NFL approved it...
    • Isn't that also true of the candidates that you think teams are in a hurry to hire in January?     You could have said the same about Ballard in 2017. He got beat out for the Bears job by Ryan Pace, so he was a leftover. When the Colts job came open, and he was considered the favorite, and media outlets spoke of him as one of the most coveted candidates on the market. (Irsay is prone to hyperbole, but he called him the most prepared GM candidate ever; it's not likely that Irsay felt Ballard was just a "leftover.")   My point: There are always good candidates. Same is true for head coaches, assistants, etc. It's shortsighted and hysterical to act like there are no good GM candidates on the board in June. The guys who you say teams will be rushing to hire the following January are on the board in June.     Not sure why you're arguing this. It's pretty obvious that Caserio is the guy they wanted; they look to have canceled their GM search for now, which suggests that they're going to wait until Caserio's contract expires after the 2020 draft and attempt to hire him, pending further developments.   And to my point, he was not hired in January, so the desire to get a good candidate (or the guy you want) doesn't require making these moves in January.     I guess I could have phrased that differently, but what I said was they keep virtually all their staff in place, meaning they might change a piece or two in Year 1, but most of their staff remains the same in Year 1.    But I did say that's typical, which left room for outliers. And I was speaking about GMs that take over the job in January, not after the draft (or later, like Gettleman and Dorsey, recently).    If that came across as overly dogmatic, I didn't intend for it to be. But I stand by my point that it's typical for a new GM hired in January to keep his staff mostly in tact for that first player acquisition cycle, and make changes at some point after the draft. This is what Ballard did, keeping Jimmy Raye until June, then hiring Dodds and Hogan. There are other examples.      This is what I reject. Firstly, it doesn't matter. Things change. I don't think I need to say much more on that. Secondly, we have several examples of teams in recent seasons changing GMs outside of the typical Black Monday in January window where big changes are traditionally made. Chiefs fired Dorsey in June, Panthers fired Gettleman in July, now Jets and Texans. I'm not saying it's a trend, just that it's not as rare as you make it out to be, at least not recently.     To the bolded, I didn't really give this a lot of thought in 2017, but it's hard to know how much difference it would have made. Ballard went through his first cycle with another GM's right hand man and front office staff, for a coach that he didn't have any experience with. Ballard's approach was noticeably different in 2018.   This might seem half-baked and out of nowhere to you, but it's not. I jumped into this debate with the same viewpoint on Reddit a couple weeks ago, and kind of transported my thoughts into this thread, but didn't start from the beginning. In the other conversation, I think my initial post was something like 'recently I've been thinking that this is a better time period to hire a GM...' If I had posted my thoughts that way here, maybe you would have understood where I was coming from a little better.   That said, it's not just an impractical rambling that I haven't thought through. I don't know if there's any way to prove that one way is right and the other is wrong; I'm stating my preference, strongly.   My primary argument in favor of hiring a GM in June instead of January -- which you haven't addressed -- is that the work that goes into free agency, the Combine, pro days and the draft starts way back in the fall, if not sooner. When you hire a GM in January and give him six weeks to prepare for free agency, eight weeks to prepare for the Combine and pro days, and three months to prepare for the draft, that GM is not operating at full capacity. He would be better equipped if he started the job the prior June.   Do you think that's a weak argument? If so, why? I think that's an easy starting point.   I said earlier, if the Texans had waited until January 2020 to fire Gaine, all this criticism wouldn't exist. And the only practical difference is that they would have handicapped their new GM. (This is a more effective argument for the Jets, since the Texans are apparently not hiring a new GM yet.)   Like I said in my first post in this thread, imagine if the Colts had hired Ballard in June 2016 instead of January 2017... I'm sure people would have been critical, wondering why we let Grigson run the 2016 cycle if we were going to fire him, but imagine how much better prepared Ballard would have been for his first cycle with an additional six months on the job. 
    • Ballard's pre and post draft videos are Must See TV.  He truly is Dialed In. With my old memory, i will be able to watch them again in a few weeks and enjoy them. Like watching Andy Griffith maybe, it just never gets old.   The look and words from Frank about getting Campbell was Great.  He is so pumped.       
    • Although I will say didn’t we almost beat the eagles last year?
