Hello - welcome to the 2012/2013 Fantasy Football Thread
(not handegg). Nice to see you again!
If you haven't played before, the basic premise is that you select a squad of Premiership players and get points for their performance. We'll be running the leagues at http://fantasy.premierleague.com/
. The rules can be found here: http://fantasy.premierleague.com/rules/
(Btw if you played last year you can log in with the email address and p/w you registered last time)
We'll be running the following leagues:
*$50 classic league
*$50 head 2 head (You'll be paired with another team in the league every gameweek; 3 points for a win and 1 for a draw. Full info in the rules section I've linked to.)
If you haven't entered this league before or don't post here very often then please post in the thread first so we can 'ok' you before you send your money. It's nothing personal - we just don't want to be sharked by people with zero poker interest who spend a lot of time playing fantasy football.
Aside from that, if you'd like to play one or more of the above leagues, send your $ to clunged (uk) on Stars by August 15th. That's plenty of time to enter and it gives me a couple of days to send codes out before the first game week.
PLEASE READ THIS... Once you have sent the money, post the following information in this thread:
The stars account you sent from.
How much you sent.
If you only sent $50, post which league you are entering.
Your team name on the Fantasy Football site.
Clunged will quote your post to confirm whether or not he's got your entry $. Once he's confirmed that you've sent, I'll PM you the codes to the league(s) that you've entered. Then you'll just need to go to http://fantasy.premierleague.com/my-leagues/
, click "join a league" and enter the code. Obviously don't share the codes with anyone else.
Don't worry if we don't confirm/send codes straight away, you'll get them. I work 'til 5.30pmish UK time so can't check the thread before then (other than some lunch times) on week days
Here are the payouts from last year: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...CVW5FWFE#gid=0
They will be similar this year. I will eventually update this spreadsheet with entrants and payouts: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...2UXhCTUE#gid=0
Winnings will be sent back to your Stars account.
I think that's everything covered... if you have any questions just post. Sorry for the fairly wordy post!
