PostSubject: Austin 4 Horsemen (Chance)   Wed Mar 16, 2016 4:48 pm

1. I'm Chance Patrick, currently residing in Pflugerville, TX (Just outside of Austin). However we sold our home, are closing tomorrow actually, and plan to move into Austin proper.

2. I played redraft leagues in high school with my family and friends. Stopped doing that for a few years, then jumped back into redraft again with some buddies in college. Then stopped that for a few years. However, back in 2011 I got curious, I think just on a whim, about more in depth type fantasy leagues. Probably after playing franchise mode on Madden. Anyhow I stumbled across DLF and found a free Salary Cap Dynasty league and just dove into it from there. I won that league in the third year, it's last year.

I had been bitten by the bug at that point and found that league (Hosted on Fantrax) to not be active enough so I created Legion Dynasty League, which was of a similiar vein as the first one: RFA, UFA, contracts, extensions, options, etc. I've commissioned that league now for 3 years and heading strong into year 4. In 2014 I started Legion 2.0, after coming across Roster Wars I essentially ripped off the whole concept, sorry guys! The by-laws were similiar and a lot of the concepts in boosting activity were simliar granted I am no were near as adamant about posting as you guys. I also created some unique systems for Legion 2, specifically the Player Tier system which takes every player and evaluates them on their previous years performance and then adjusts their salary, causing some to hold-out if they want more money. If anyone is curious: league bylaws are here: http://legiondynastylg2.proboards.com. That league is going into year 3, very strong as well in fact with a repeating champ from year 1 and 2. Also fun fact but Agent actually did the design work for Legion 2's MFL page.  

Continuing a too long story, I started Legion Beer League in 2015. Its a much more casual salary cap dynasty league where each member send local craft beer to division mates and the winner gets a beer box from everyone. I also play in a Superflex salary cap league and another sort of hybrid Keeper/redraft/dynasty league hosted on NFL.com/Google+ .....seriously on Google+....its ridiculous.

As for hosting: Legion 1 is on Fantrax, Legion Beer is on Fantrax, Legion 2.0 is on MFL, Superflex League is on MFL and the above hybrid league is on NFL.com.

3. The intensity of every owner being always active and competitive. I find as a hobby I want to be surrounded by people that are constantly thinking of the same thing and Roster Wars exemplifies that.

4. Well since I commish 3 leagues I'd say about 5 during January-March, and slowly picking up to around 7 or 8 during the heaviest parts of the off-season and during the season.

5. It may be a simple story and probably not all that exciting but one of my favorite memories was in the Startup Auction for Legion 2.0 I traded Cecil Shorts for a teams 2015 1st. I'm not sure why he did it but he did. That pick turned into 1.1 and Todd Gurley this last draft and I've been laughing ever since. For some reason in that league I have had some weird luck with RBs because in year 1 I traded Demarco Murray for LeVeon Bell really early and he then blew up, I got Gurley and David Johnson in last years draft and haven't looked back. On the flip side my QB was Nick Foles so you win some and you lose some.

6. As an owner, I am guessing they would say I am kind of a stingy trader, a solid drafter, and a pretty good owner overall. Since i commish most of my leagues I am the most active so I don't think that would be fair for other owners to asses.

7. Nothing much, I've watched from the sidelines long enough, time to get in on the action.

8. Place me in as a prospect.

Cheers everyone - Chance

Yeah, it is no where near the level as RW but it was inspiring coming across RW the first time. To be honest I have no idea why I didn't apply the first time but I guess I dove into my own project.

Welcome to RW.  Glad you took a moment to stop by and say hi this time.  

Given the formation and story behind Legion 2.0, it might be interesting to hear what parts of the rules here you tweaked/modified/deleted/expanded.

Russ, I will have to dive into that sometime. To be honest, I mostly cut out a good bit of the harcore part of it. I only expect owners to vote in official polls, discussions, etc, but have no monthly activity requirements.

I added a owner Prestige Point system, a riff on War Bucks. I don't know...the rules here are so extensive I'm pretty sure it would take me quite a while to actually go in and compare/contrast.

It means youre quite involved in many facets of fantasy football. Youre a player, commish, forum leader, and the various types of leagues you have participated in shows youre not afraid to try something different.

Welcome again.
