    The league's format is identical to all past seasons of the RCFHL. Any alterations can be hammered out over the next few weeks.

    Our LIVE DRAFT is scheduled for Sun Sep 21 7:30pm ADT. Anyone need to change that date or time?

    Please PM me your email address or check your inbox if you're returning.

    Our league is a very active league intended for very active managers who can commit to sticking with their team, week in and week out, until October.

    First order of business... We need to go over this stuff again since last season's message board was wiped.


    I'm going to re-do the polls ASAP. Changes require simple majority.

    Managers, please make a selection in the following league polls:


    If you're looking for another league, consider the Reddit! Halifax league. It was competitive last year. I'm the assistant commissioner of that league as of last night. Let me know if you want an invite sent your way.

    I'm in favour of #3. 2 IR+ and #5. Include HIT, BLK; Exclude GWG.

    I like the idea of adding HIT and BLK to give our defencemen a little more worth. A player blocking a shot, or delivering a hit, none of that has to do with luck.

    GWG is such a luck category.

    I just realized I left out a viable option. Exclude GWG, BLK, HIT. No adding stat cats, just dropping the GWG. It's not too late to talk about that as well.

    tribeachpunktribeachpunk - Throw an invite my way for the Reddit Halifax league.

    I have a feeling the 2 leagues I'm in currently are going to peter out - can't remember if you're in one or both of those. My brother doesn't have the time to really put into the one he runs. I already gave up running the one I set up, and haven't heard anything from the guy who runs it.

    Also binge watched "The League" recently and am seriously pumped for this season. :lol:

    Will do. Heading out in a hurry now, look for it later this evening.

    I don't have any attachment to the ESPN leagues. I never could get out of the basement.

    Good points! Question though.. we currently have 10 categories for skaters and 6 categories for goalies... so if we were to lose the GWG and add BLK and HIT... wouldn't it make the skater category uneven at 11 skaters and the total uneven at 17? Not sure it makes a difference anyway?

    Disregard this question. If the 2 new categories do end up getting voted in, it will give a for sure winner each week and not a (possible) tie. Not that ties happen much anyway, but with an uneven total category number, it'll get rid of them completely.

    Ok, so I just emailed everyone reminding you to vote on proposed changes ASAP.

    If you've already voted, please check in again. Some votes are very close, and you may change your vote if you choose to.

    We are currently sitting at 13 teams. 12/14 have returned from last season. Two are not returning. We'll need to find a fourteenth team.

    The /r/Halifax league has 11 teams, and it needs a #12. Basically, if you're looking for another pool, it's an option for you. Maybe someone from the Reddit league can be our fourteenth.

    Finally, there are 10 days until our draft on Sun Sep 21 7:30pm ADT. Draft room will open 15 min before draft time. If you can't make it or are likely to be late or forget, pre rank your players!

    What kind of commitment does this require? How time consuming is it?

    I only spend about 30 mins a week, just set my lineups week in advance and tweak if guys get injured...it's not that time consuming.

    We know you're on the case... when you've got some time of course. All the work you do to get people round up for each season is greatly appreciated!

    Like Wayne mentioned, you can basically set all your lineups on one day and only have to change something if someone gets injured. Good thing about fantasy hockey is that guys don't play everyday so only occasionally do you have to chose between certain players and bench others.
