  1. Brutus texted me constantly this entire draft, and I'm sure I was just one of many. Kick ass, brutus, you're the f**kin man.
  2. I just know that if I won B playoffs, and somehow beat the A champ (unlikely, but hypothetically) I wouldnt FEEL like i was the true champ because my path to the cup would have been easier
  3. GDL feels like "the pros" to me because its set up like pro sports. Sometimes the tampa bay bucs just suck all season. If they want the lombardi, they have to do the work. I think thats the most fair possible. AND didn't we have a rd 1 upset this time????? I know its decently predictable, but thats because its a real, true test of skill.
  4. I want to voice my opposition. I'm sure many of the points have already been made, but here it is in my estimation. - I love GDL because its open season, and it gives me the chance to play the ELITES and make my game better. I, personally, ENJOY being matched w an elite in the 1st rd of playoffs - We already have that set up in classic, and if you notice, A vs. B championship is EXI ONLY. it does not determine the ultimate champ for classic, and I think theres a reason for that…. which is my next point. -I think its pretty fair to say that the B champ would PALE in comparison to the runner up, 3rd, and 4th place team owners from A. I want GDL to be an all in league. Its LITERALLY the only chance I have to seriously play elites in games that matter. If you take this away from me, you're taking away my only shot at playing top guys in important games. I firmly disagree with this. GDL is THE BEST of THE BEST. Please keep it that way. And to anyone who supports this…… if you think GDL is hard, thats because it is. Thats the REASON why its awesome. You want a crown? Step your game up then. Don't "Hillary" the rules to make winning easier.
  5. Damn…… No Ice No Raph No Plabs….. can we just call a Seth v. Frey final already? lulz Edit: my bad AJ, didn't see ya
  6. JV will take HAM, although I sold away my "pink shorts" jersey rights to FPB for late night exis. JV in w HAM, standard jerseys lol
  7. Hey guys, I'll be sitting vhl3 out and handing the NYR reins back to Lupz. Maybe I'll jump back in for vhl4 but I gotta free up some time. Amazing season though, skip. Well done as always
  8. I've never had a problem meeting deadlines. I started all 3 leagues at the same time and finished them all, while working 60 hours a week and raising a kid. There truly is no excuse. You're either committed, or you're not. I am in favor of keeping the same formats, and just coming down MUCH harder on the slackers. Shouldn't even be any leeway. 2 missed deadlines and you're out.

  18. Jesus cant save you from my obnoxious color choice.
  19. Same unis as last time, PINK AND YELLOW
  20. Custom teams make it more fun, and any of the "confusion" problems people have, I admit they exist, however I HIGHLY doubt they pose any more threat than a brief few seconds on the upload or team selection pages. We HAVE a classic league, if I'm not mistaken, the whole point of GDL is to have a CUSTOM league. We change player numbers dont see why this would bother anyone.
  21. I know I'm a noob around here and my word doesn't hold a lot of weight, but my feeling is if there is ANY dispute over a goal/win/lag/game etc., the game/goal/whatever should be replayed in total. Esp in playoffs.
