That sounds cool, I'll have a go too.

On a seperate note, I'd like to go for the 1st September for the standard league draft, I'm away on the 25th and would prefer not to have to go with the auto draft for my picks.

Ok,looks like we will have enough.

I'll post a few options for the draft date and time when we have the numbers sorted.

Yeah, well it's set for Saturday 1st of September, 5pm UK time. All the preseason games will be over by then, so everyone should know the extent of injuries etc.

 

Any other suggestions for the standard league this year?

 

One thing I'll suggest, even though I'm happy either way, would be this. Would it be better to cut the regular season down from 15 to 14 weeks, and have an extra week of playoffs? That way 8 teams would make the playoffs rather than 4. It might mean everyone should have a good chance of making the playoffs all the way through, rather than being out of it by Week 11 or 12.

 

The downside would be that you wouldn't play everyone else, you'd play 14 of the 15 other players.

 

Like I said, I don't mind it the way it is, but it might be an idea to keep it interesting.

Chad Johnson Reportedly Released by Miami Dolphins Following Arrest

The second Chad Johnson era is off to a rocky start.

 

Johnson, who legally changed his name back from Ochocinco a few weeks ago so he wouldn't inflict the name on his new bride, has been released by the Miami Dolphins after being arrested for head-butting that same woman.

 

The news comes from the Miami Dolphins' official Twitter account:

 

Miami Dolphins ✔@MiamiDolphins The Miami Dolphins have terminated the contract of WR Chad Johnson.

The 34-year-old never played an official snap with his new team, which reportedly had no choice but to release the wideout. From Mike Florio and Pro Football Talk:

 

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Johnson was on a one-strike arrangement with the team. Coach Joe Philbin, who has welcomed plenty of distractions in the seven months since he took the job, ultimately didn’t want the added distraction of the criminal prosecution of one of his higher-profile players.

 

Johnson's career has been a roller coaster in every sense of the word.

 

He began in Cincinnati, where he established himself as one of the best receivers in the game, but also as one of the most enigmatic.

You either loved his antics or you hated him. There was no in-between.

 

Still, no matter how you felt toward Johnson, there was no denying what he could do on the football field.

 

Over 10 seasons with the Bengals from 2001-2010, Johnson averaged 75 catches, 1,078 yards and seven touchdowns per season. He surpassed the 90-reception mark four times and the 1,200-yard mark five times over that span.

 

As he began to decline, though, the Bengals could finally afford to depart ways with their eccentric wide receiver, letting Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots take a chance on him.

 

 

Will another team sign Chad Johnson?

Yes, he still has talent and he'll come for cheap.

No, way too much risk involved.

In 15 games for the Pats last season, Johnson recorded just 276 yards and one TD on 15 grabs, leaving him destined for free agency once again.

 

It was there that the Dolphins, a team lacking much of everything in the receiving talent, took a flier on him. Knowing his skill set, even after 11 years in the league, it was a gamble that made sense, just so long as he didn't push anyone's buttons.

 

But being charged with domestic battery, a misdemeanor, and serving jail time is obviously more than pushing buttons.

 

For a team with a young receiving corps, this move will open up playing time for plenty of other guys to prove themselves. With Johnson out of the mix, however, Legedu Naanee, Davone Bess and Brian Hartline all stand to see a significant up-tick in plays and targets.

 

 

 

Episode 2 of hard knocks should be interesting

Has everyone who expressed a interest in here signed up?

We have one more spa e left if we stay as a 8 team league.

 

Everyone happy with the scoring and rules for a 2 team playoff.Any suggestions for scoring or the amount of players kept for a year.

It's a 35 man squad with 20 players being kept,is that too many?

I also added a additional reserve place to everyone's squad.This is for injured players only.A player needs to start the season on IR/PUP list and can then be used for players going on season the list if they miss the rest of the season.

The idea is that if you sign a player who gets injured early and you want to keep him for next seasons you have a spare slot to do so.Same thing if you want Mendenhall or Suggs but know they won't play till at least week 6 you can draft them and add them to the reserves list after the draft.This means unless you are drafting a injured player you need to remember to not fill the roster spot on the draft.
