    Cricketweb's Virtual NRL 2009

    Hey Guys
    As mentioned in the NRL thread as VNRL is 95% not running this year I'm attempting to set up our own league on Cricketweb. James has already agreed to give us a subforum for the game inside the Sports forum so thats a good start.
    I thought we should get it started pretty soon as the drafting process may take a while, depending on how it's done.

    Rundown of the rules:
    - Competition will require at least 8 teams, no more than 14 though.
    - Squads will be selected largely by a drafting process, when we get to a set number it will just be signing from there.
    - Players will have set positions, eg someone like Craig Wing will be a Five-Eighth/Halfback/Hooker while someone like Ben Ross will only be a Prop. There will be no player values or salary cap etc...
    - Scoring system is as follows
    4 Points for a try
    2 for a goal (only one gk per week)
    1 for a field goal
    4 for a Forward try (Any variation of 35 tackles or 20 hit ups or a combination of 45 of the both)

    Each week we will be required to keep track of our own scores, however if you dont want to or can't I'll be double checking them all at the end of the round anyway.

    I have arranged with James to set up the forum in here once there is enough interest. So if you are keen leave your interest here.

    I wouldn't go around advertising that you're using that particular site for your stats. They actually sent me a nasty email just because I used their stats a lot in forum posts...

    And I'm interested FTR. I never join the CW competition because I'm in a few others, but I always end up regretting it.

    I don't know the particular site you're talking about, but unless they run their own fantasy comp? I fail to see what could be so horrendous about people advertising the use of their site...?

    I'll be in if you're short of numbers, not liking the "keeping track of own scores" dealy tho. Usually have about half a dozen fantasy teams on the go in the overlap of the English and SH football seasons.

    How will the draft work if players don't have a $ value? Who gets first pick?

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Will be a different draft order for each round randomly worked out, I'll make sure everyone gets a fair chance at having early picks etc...
    R.E keeping track of own scores, its the only way to do it really, as I said if you don't want to do that, I'll be double checking and working out results as we go along anyway.

    So we are not doing it on a web-site, we are doing it by selecting our teams then working out the points?

    I'm in by the way.
