2009 MFFL Discussion Thread

Hey guys,

I put the forum back up so that we can try to discuss the future of the MFFL. You can post without logging in, just sign your name at the bottom of the post.

As stated in before, we're kind of in a hard place in that our stat service that we've used for the last 10+ years has just disappeared. We're in the process of trying to find a new stat service, but haven't found one that isn't insanely expensive.

One alternative is to go with a fantasy football service, Cecil has suggested myfantasyleague.com . They would basically run all the stats and such for us, and we would pay them to do it. Of course the problem here is that we would lose the continuity of having it on the MFFL site.

The floor is open to discussion

If a feasible stat service can be found i like probably most owners would love to keep things just as they have been and enjoy the continuity and exclusivity/control of having our own dedicated site, however, time is running short and we aren't too far away from have to get drafts and what not lined up.....so even if its going to a service/league that runs all the stats i am all on board for whatever it takes to "keep the dream alive" so to speak. If we need to go that route Cecil's suggestion looks like as good of an option as i have seen in that realm.

I've got a few requests for price quotes out right now. Hopefully they'll respond today, and I'll know what we're looking at. This is for raw stats, and I'll have to reprogram how we process the stats in. No biggie there.

Interestingly enough, a few of the raw stats providers that I contacted have said that they are not providing that service anymore. I wonder if there is something else going on here? Like the NFL clamping down on stats, unless you're willing to pay really high fees.

Still got a few emails out.

Got a quote from stats.com, while they wouldn't give me an exact price, they said it would be four figures for a season of stats. Ummm... How about no?

So who's up for Cecil's suggestion of myfantasyleague.com?

Greg here.

A couple of hurdles.

Each division in the MFFL is its own game, meaning they draft from their own separate pool of players. So, each division will have to pay full price at myfantasyleague.

How many divisions want to go back to paying and do all six members in said divisions want to go back to paying?

Who will collect the money and who will send it in?

When some divisions have no-shows or owners who don't want to return, who will take up the slack?

How, if at all, will this relate back to MFFL.com?

*****

Personally, I think the MFFL is done as far as managing the divisions and the membership. My suggestion is that if we have any interested parties left, they should get the emails for their division mates and confer ASAP.

I guess that the Namath division will go this route and we'll soldier on. But, I hate that the league as we know it is probably over.

If anyone wants to take on the task of saving their division, I can help with email addresses, assuming the online MFFL database is still gone. I have a pretty good directory of the owners at home.
