Have no problems with the teams and how are the teams gonna be a allocated? A Draw:confused:

Re: Grudge match set-up...grrrrr

I think the team you get should be decided within your own team. I'm proposing choosing a captain for each team and they decide whether you do a draw or just decide between yourselves. Let's hold off putting our preferences for now until the 6 teams get suitably filled :)

I'm not sure about how many divisions yet. It will either be 4 divs of 12 or 3 divs of 16 teams. Better teams will start in the lower leagues so weaker teams have a chance of catching up.

Also remember, when it comes to decision of manager of the season and awarding of prizes etc., the smaller teams that have done well will probably be given extra credit so don't despair if you get a so-called smaller team ;)

EDIT: the captain will be chosen within your own team, I don't want anything to do with it. Further rules to be posted soon!

I'd stick to a random draw mate and then let people within the teams swap around if they want to, then at least you have allocated teams and don't have to wait until all people are online and around to talk to each other ect

Looking good so far thou :)

That's a great incentive for the managers not to quit the smaller clubs.

Re: Grudge match set-up...grrrrr

Like I said I don't want anyhting to do with choosing of captains - however, captains will have a few responsibilities (not to many) which I am going to highlight below:

Now to the points scoring system:

I want to keep it relatively easy

League points

Win - 3pts

Draw - 1pt

Win by 5 goals or more - 1 bonus point

Lose by 5 goals or more - minus 2 pts (to prevent any inter-team cheating :D ) - this will not be the case if the team is unmanaged

1st in league - 16pts

2nd in league - 12pts

3rd in league - 8pts

Cup/shield points

Q/F - 1pt

S/F - 2pts

Losing finalist - 4pts

Winner - 8pts

Star Player

Goals - 1pt (if striker/midfielder)

Clean sheets - 1pt (if goalkeeper/defender)

Has to be nominated before 1st game and cannot be changed till next season even if sold :eek: (think carefully)

Joker

Each of the 6 teams has a joker which can be played for 1 turn in the season. This will double any points the team receives that week (positive/negative)

Other rules

??????? - open to suggestions but should not be too complicated

Captains responsibilities

- Ensure all teams are managed within his team

- Report all bonus points gained by the team (star player bonuses) within reasonable time for any turn's set of fixtures (not sure if this will be on thread or by PM)

- Ensure fair play and help keep harmony (keep his/her teams mouths shut :D )

- Decide when to play Joker

Any other suggestions. Oh and BTW if more than one person in a team wants to be captain you may have to hold a vote between yourselves (poll)

Re: Grudge match set-up...grrrrr

That all sounds good but what do you mean by the joker thing?

I'm talking in terms of team points as opposed to individual e.g

If Team 3 got 4 wins and 1 draw and 3 star players scored they woukd have got

4 wins = 12pts

1 draw = 1pt

3 star players scored = 3pts

_______________________

Total = 16pts for that week

But if they had played their joker that week they will be awarded 32pts for the team competition.

The joker will be important for the overall team competition - play it at the right time and your team will benefit greatly :)

3rd Place: 20 Points

Also, more points for winning the cup..

Winners: 30 Points

Runners-Up: 20 Points

Semi-Finalists: 10 Points

Quarter-Finalists: 5 Points

Oops! Forgot about that - thanks Tom - will just update that now :o

I don't want to give too many points to the cup competitons as to be fair the league should have a larger bearing (could win the cup with 4 draws and wins on penalties). Also if yo win the league you will already have got many points for the team so don't want to award too many points for this either - I want to keep the contest close - I'll just do something now (Thanks ;) )
