The current league settings should be the same as what we did last year.   :)

Yeah, but I wasn't in the league last year.   :-*

The settings posted are the same as last year.  Keeping the league name the same each year means you can just select the same settings as previously.  So looking at my post on page one with the settings or looking at the league settings on the yahoo page indicate the same thing as last year's settings.  Greetings from Fargo. :-*

Three days until I set the scoring system. 

I am not opposed to changing the scoring a little to favor general production a bit more.  And I am not opposed to the negative points in the original scoring system, though I'd accept them being dropped to -0.5 (or is it already there  :P)

Any other comments?

I finally got on to the site and checked out current scoring.  Not sure how you would have folks vote on this, but I'd be in favor of getting rid of the -1 for missed kicks.  Everything else is fine with me.

Well, for the FG stuff I see three options:

leave it as it is.
drop the penalty to -0.5 points instead of -1.0
only have the penalty for shorter field goals, say under 40 yards? 

From Rob's stuff I'm ok with the yardage changes if you guys want to go that way:
Passing Yards (50 yards per point; 1 point at 300 yards)
Rushing Yards (10 yards per point; 1 point at 100 yards)
Reception Yards (10 yards per point; 1 point at 100 yards)

I'd like to leave the TDs as they are for receiving/rushing/passing if we can, which I guess is what Rob said anyway.  I don't know that the changes will do all that much other than bump up scores overall.  I guess if you get stuck with a non-red zone RB/WR you can still score points if they rack up just yards though.

Usually the winner and since this is football, that means not me.

I'll collect the money.

But I don't promise to disperse it after the season ends.

What's the entry fee and what are the payouts?

We don't actually play for money in this league.  He was just joking around.

OK
I did slightly modify the stat categories, though nothing too drastic.  Here they are for this season:

Stat Categories: Passing Yards (75 yards per point; 1 points at 300 yards)
Passing Touchdowns (4)
Interceptions (-1)
Rushing Yards (15 yards per point; 1 points at 100 yards)
Rushing Touchdowns (6)
Reception Yards (15 yards per point; 1 points at 100 yards)
Reception Touchdowns (6)
Return Touchdowns (6)
2-Point Conversions (2)
Fumbles Lost (-2)
Offensive Fumble Return TD (6)
Field Goals 0-19 Yards (3)
Field Goals 20-29 Yards (3)
Field Goals 30-39 Yards (3)
Field Goals 40-49 Yards (4)
Field Goals 50+ Yards (5)
Field Goals Missed 0-19 Yards (-1)
Field Goals Missed 20-29 Yards (-1)
Field Goals Missed 30-39 Yards (-1)
Field Goals Missed 40-49 Yards (0)
Field Goals Missed 50+ Yards (0)
Point After Attempt Made (1)
Sack (1)
Interception (1)
Fumble Recovery (1)
Touchdown (6)
Safety (2)
Block Kick (2)
Kickoff and Punt Return Touchdowns (6)
Points Allowed 0 points (6)
Points Allowed 1-6 points (0)
Points Allowed 7-13 points (0)
Points Allowed 14-20 points (0)
Points Allowed 21-27 points (0)
Points Allowed 28-34 points (0)
Points Allowed 35+ points (0) 
Fractional Points: Yes 
Negative Points: Yes 


Only three changes total.  I eliminated the penalty for missing a field goal of 40 yards or longer.  And I changed the point accumulation for rushing and receiving yards from 1 point per 25 yards down to 1 point per 15 yards.  Not quite as heavily weighted as Rob's suggestion, but more of a reward for the non-red zone guys.  Draft accordingly.
