11 teams have now submitted their power rankings. We had 14 last year, 20 was the goal for this year. Lots of good comments for me to choose from so nice job by all who have participated!! Reminder, only the teams who submit rankings will get to see where they stand and what other GMs are saying about their team. I'll definitely give it a few more days before I post what I have. Also, please post your rankings 1-29, not 1-15 in both conferences. There has been some confusion on that part.

After the power rankings get posted, I will post K-DOT's extension rule amendment for discussion and eventually a vote. I'll wait a bit until the board is a bit more active before doing that, but I want it to get voted on before the season starts so look for it probably no later than next weekend.

No worries, not everyone submitted comments. It was just an extra option for people that wanted to do it.

Up to 13 teams submitting rankings...I would like to get at least seven more before I post them. I will let it go at least through next week. Anyone who would like to do it but may need more time, let me know. The more people who participate the better and more accurate results we will have.

14 rankings in (matching last years total)...slowly but surely we're getting closer to the goal of at least 20 active participants. With the season starting exactly 9 weeks from today and sim season beginning a few weeks later then that, we still have some time. But I'm thinking Sunday night will be the final day for me to accept rankings so I can put it all together and move on as we ready for BAF season 3.

I will be putting up K-DOT's extension amendment this weekend for review and discussion. It will need to be voted on before the start of the regular season. Also, in another couple of weeks we will have to have all GMs commit to the 2019-20 season. There are many GMs who have been inactive the past month or so and we need to make sure that we have a full 30 team league to begin the season. Any questions about the upcoming year, let me know.

I'm ready for the disrespect again - i remember last year people really try to have me at the bottom of the east and we saw where that turned out. Let's gooooo


East did get better this year for sure - but i think people forget how to judge based on SIM vs future rankings for young players they think will become better vs how they really are now

Ha! I listened too much to the opinions around me last year, went out of my way to tank, and still almost made the playoffs in the West. **** the haters man!

Spoiler:
On that note, I did not rank your team well :lol: But my exact comment was that the Sim may have you in the playoffs nonethless.

lol yeahh man, can't really compare people's rankings to what a sim will do - and I feel some people do not know or don't want to build a team around what the sim may rate players.

And no worries - I'm still expecting the same level of disrespect to the team since I don't have a "superstar" - but honestly, find me a deeper team in this BaF. I've been drinking so I'm ready for a little fun back and forth, but I honestly think I have the deepest team in this. Not necessarily the best, but the deepest. And if I was oh so close to hitting the finals last year, with a better team, I'm expecting pretty good things from my team this year.

Spoiler:
and if not, I still got that inaugural chip :lol: :lol:

Probably the SIM will prove me wrong and you'll end the season at a higher spot :lol: but I ranked you 7th in the East on my most recent Power Rankings (based on real life Offensive and Defensive Box Plux/Minus -and eye test- of each team's current 10 Man rotation found in GMs signatures)

Your depth is definitely your strong suit. A few tough contracts in there but then some real value in $40 and under range.

I kinda want to figure out a trade tbh.
