    Thanks guys for the sentiments above. In the world of online anonymity where there is often bluster, bravado and a lot of posturing, it is touching to see a very real decency being expressed, one that transcends the anonymity and makes this a tighter knit community than one would initially realise.

    It is things like the goodness of mankind, though sometimes lacking in society, that make life worth fighting for. You never know how impacting a thoughtful gesture or sentiment might be in someone's life so don't be afraid to be that positive light for someone fumbling their way through the darkness.

    Its so nice to be friendly before we all become enemies next Saturday :)

    Hey both, I will talk with the other organiser tomorrow and see if we can do a regular season. The reason behind it was people who didn't sign up in time and there would be more competing (and more in the kitty!). I will post an update tomorrow anyway

    Thanks James. It's a really bad move tbh. Totally different ball game how you would pick a team to start in Sept. Would mean those playing from start, using wildcard etc would be pretty much ruled out unless they put together a second team.

    Also, as it was not made clear at all in the advert, main page or signup page you are liable to have a lot of unhappy campers if they don't realise till after Saturday.

    Mcmillian league is open until December 31st according to an email i just received. While an excellent cause it isn't a league I'm keen on staying in if it's open that long.

    It's the entry fee or donation that counts,there's plenty of other leagues to concentrate on for prizes.

    @Zarquon, I put a link and quoted your post in the soccer forum to get a few more to enter/donate.Hope you don't mind.

    Having spoke with the other organiser we have changed it now so the scoring starts from gameweek 1 so happy days all. We will allow entrants to the league until the end of September! Thanks for the heads up on the website also

    That's the best way to administer a league with extended entry window. A league that starts scoring from a specified mid season week, is open to abuse as people can create and customize new teams before the closing date specifically for your league with all chips intact and fore knowledge of form of players and teams.

    The fairest system that stops this kind of abuse is to have scoring from GW1 but have an arbitrary closing date yourself. Of course there's always the issue that people that get off to a flyer swoop into the league to snap the top places so they will have a slight advantage but that is unavoidable as your goal is revenue first and foremost.

    Thanks James, as Zarquon says it's not ideal that people can suck it and see as to whether they are having a good season before entering.

    May even be counter productive for yous in some ways as if local club supporters are not doing well, or in some case have even lost interest by Sept they may not enter, where they may do in the heady optimistic days of preseason if you got a push on it. From experience with our own league the last few days i.e. from now to Sat are when you get big numbers of sign up as the average FPL player suddenly gets their finger out and joins their work league etc. Not having a deadline may lose you more than it gains.

    Will stick with it anyway, seeing as you lads are doing such a great job of keeping us out of the relegation zone! :D;)

    Might I just post a timely reminder for the excellent and superbly run (and not by me btw ;)) Finn Harps Fantasy league.

    Expecting €2,000+ in the pot, with a cup, monthly cash prizes and Christmas top score spot prize hamper.

    In its 4th season and getting bigger every year. Bucking the trend of reducing numbers expected to at least match last year's entry.

    http://www.finnharps.com/fhfc/?p=3312

    If anyone wants to PayPal me direct as 'friends and family' to beat the fees I can pass on the entry in cash.

    The first prize in the Harps Fantasy League looks like it's going to be a minimum of €1,000. Cash prizes for 2nd, 3rd and Cup competition. There's the bonus Xmas Competition and Monthly cash prizes too!! Was over €2,000 in the pot last year, so looks like it will top that this year.
