Hello, everyone. As always, I would like to thank all of you for spending a few minutes with me today.
The first season of the WWE fantasy league went pretty well. It was a lot of fun for everyone that was involved. It is time for us to move on to season two though.
I do have a couple announcements before I go on any further. We will have a couple of rule changes in season two. So please pay close attention to the following changes.
New rule number 1
You must have at least one person on your roster at all times. If you don’t you will be considered out of the contest.
New rule number 2
You can’t trade more then three people at one time. When you do make a trade, the person you are trading something must give you something in return. Whether its member on your roster or a draft pick, something must be given back.
New Rule number 3
We had some arguments amongst players regarding gimmick matches. You will now only receive points for one pin fall in gimmick matches that involve multiple pins.
New rule 4
TV personalities will now get 30 points for appearing on PPV's. Also if you pick a TV personality that wrestles, you can get points for both in certain situations. If Gregory helms interviews someone, and then the Hurricane wrestles, you will get points for both.
Now back to the business at hand. I will only open up ten spots for now. Those who finished in the top ten are automatically eligible. For those who did finish in the top ten you have 3 days to reserve your spot.
After that your spot will be open to anyone. I will leave this posted up for a week. Next Sunday I will be posting the time and day of the draft.
The rules for the league are posted below. It would probably be a good idea to check them out.
Also, in case anyone is wondering. I will be giving out prizes again. I don’t know what they will be yet, so don’t ask lol.
Here is how the scoring will work:
· If your pick wins by pin or submission, you will get 50 points.
· If your pick wins by DQ or count-out you get 25 points.
· If you pick a non-wrestler, all they have to do is appear on TV and you will get 15 points.
· If your wrestler makes it on the Pay Per View card, or your non-wrestler is shown on the Pay Per View, you will get 30 points no matter what. If your wrestler wins, they will get double the points depending how the match is won.
· In gimmick matches that involve multiple pins. You will only receive points for one match.
I will be posting the scores on every Saturday. You will get points if your picks win on Raw, Smackdown, Superstars, ECW, or a Pay Per View.
If you would like to trade a wrestler with another member, you must do so on an open forum when I post the scores, that way everyone will see it.
There can be no more then three people traded at one time. When making a trade the person you are trading with must give a person or draft pick up.
Trades with other players can only be made on the weekends once the contest starts. This is to prevent double swapping for points.
If your guy gets hurt, you will have the option to send him into the pool of leftovers from the draft and take someone new. This also must be done when I post the scores.
You must have at least one wrestler on your roster in order to remain in the contest.
If someone decides to drop out, his or her wrestlers will be up for grabs in the pool on a first-come-first-served basis.
Please PM me if you decide to drop out of the contest. When I post the new wrestlers available, then, and only then, can you put dibs on them.
If that does happen, a person must sacrifice one of his picks to get the new guy. The pick they sacrifice will then go into the pool. All this must also be done on an open forum when the scores are posted.
After three months, I will announce the winner. The top three will get a small prize. The top 10 finishers will have the option to be in the next fantasy draft automatically.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
There are only a few rules to follow. All trades and transactions must be done on an open forum.
The second rule is something that shouldn’t be a problem, but I am putting it in just in case. You must be respectful to your fellow competitors. A little trash talking is fine, but you should know when the line is being crossed.
I will now address some questions that were asked.
Q) If I pick a non-wrestler and he or she appears on TV more than once, do I get points every time?
A) No you don’t. One of the pluses of picking someone like JR would be that you are almost always guaranteed points. The drawback is that they don’t get as much and can only get points once.
Q) If my wrestler is a heel and he cheats, will I get as much points as everyone else?
A) Yes you will. As long as they win via pin or submission, the points will always be the same.
Q) If my guy is in a tag match but he doesn’t make the pin, will I get the points?
A) Yes, because he would be on a team
