I hope it's ok if I use this forum for a while. I'm unable to login to the league's site (I can read it now, though), so I'll keep running the stages and post here anything important.


Like today. I voided an illegal contract: QB Huffman (PHI). DE Buckley (Tampa) is ok because he was an RFA, not an UFA. Late FA2 is next.

I also wrote an E-Mail. I am not able to import(which obviously means I can't even send you an export) the files since your sim yesterday, how am I supposed to get my Playbook in now? Your alternative idea doesn't work, need help.

Playbook used, trade processed, no one was over the roster limit. The stage is up and preseason 1 & 2 are next. This year they run at the same time with injuries off.

File will run lateish (in about 3 hrs) to give everyone a chance to get things in order.


No change to that situation. I can't find anything in google and can't think of anything new to try.

Did you re-install your browser? That was the issue I had when I was locked out of IFL. The forums for CyFL and IFL still have bad scripts, but I can get onto them finally.

But, what, all of them? I've tried four different browsers.

Well, as a matter of fact...


Guys, in recent seasons my enjoyment of the game has been decreasing steadily. Given the amount of work involved in running the league on top of that, I decided to step down from the job.



I thought the league could continue with a new simmer, but when I talked to Bode about it, he wasn't comfortable with that. And so we decided this would be the last year for the league (at least for the league with prizes and stuff).


Given that, and to make it special, Bode decided that all the Bowl money that players don't get because of Bowl votes would go to beef up the AI prizes. That means AI prizes could be potentially huge this year.


And a second thing. Given the above, we thought it would be best to shut down trading for the year.


I'm really sorry for those of you who are enjoying the league. It's been a great run. But it's become more of a weight for me over time and I'd really like to move on to other things. Oh, and of course, the website thing. That's just the last straw, nothing more.

Well, crap. Sad news indeed, but when it's no longer fun or it's become work, I get it. This is my 25th season in the league, so it will be strange not continuing. I won't miss the frustration that comes from (at times) putting together a good team but never managing more than 6, 7, 8 wins.

Yea ... 35 seasons for me, but I too understand that there comes a time that it no longer is fun. I too have had seasons that I struggled to maintain an enthusiasm. The game did get a little stale without any continual updates. I want to publically thank FF for his heroic efforts to maintain the league at the highest level that the game would allow him. Also a huge thanks to Bode for adding the extra incentives that made the league so unique. It has been good run!

Hell of a run FF, I feel your pain as a Commish of the OSFL, this is a thankless voluntary job, so if u don't feel it, is the best of step down.

It was a pleasure be part of this league! And all the best for yourself and Bode!

I went ahead and created a thread about this to inform the league, I hope you don't mind it.

Sad news!

I've been in the league with Houston since the 2011 season. That's like 49 seasons, right? Crazy! It's the only league I play and will miss it alot! But when the fun is gone and all that is left is work it's probably time to end it Firefly.

I've lost a bit of excitement for the game myself the last few years but I'm hoping that the new version (whenever it arrives) will bring it back.

Many thanks Bode and Firefly for a great league!

Thanks Firefly. It has been great being in this league on two separate occasions. Your work was fantastic and the prizes were also great. I understand how you have lost interest. Also I have never commished before but I appreciate that it was surely a drag at times.


Having said that, given my QB going down and the embargo on trades, I am stepping down. It is sad because this was my last league.


Team building and trading is my thing. Not so much game planning. I might have been in the mix this season with a decent QB. It was funny because I thought of benching him two weeks in a row (damn the rust). However I was also thinking I had a couple of weeks to trade for a decent backup.


Thanks again for the fun. Best of luck to you and all the owners in the league. It was great in my last FOF league to be in there with guys like You, Ben, Nemesis, bomber, etc.

Midweek is up, requests were processed. Yes, I can usually read my pms because of the email notification, but not if they're very long.


I'm sorry, chuck, I guess the timing really screwed you. Not more than the injury, though. That's the part that really did it.

The Bowl votes thread is closed. Last vote is by Seattle. Any edits to posts in that thread with an edit date later than the post date of this thread will nullify the post.


Additionally, as you all might know, Nooby has been having trouble exporting. Last year, during the playoffs, I gave the wrong date for the next sim and Nooby did not export on time. It was an important export because he had players coming back from injury and he lost a close one. Since resimming was out of the question, and since Cheyenne had no Bowl votes last year and were making a Bowl run, we agreed this year he would get another chance at playing with no votes. Since if I announced it earlier that would cause other teams to get more votes, unfairly, I decided to disclose it only after the voting ended. In short, Cheyenne will play this season as if they had no Bowl votes.
