Back by popular demand tepid requests! The 12th Annual Kicker/Defense Challenge.

NOTE - this year will be 1,000 sand entry, not 500 because, well, I want to win more sands.
DO NOT DRAFT then post your league. You MUST post your league here beforehand then draft.
and finally, once the season starts, this thread will move to Sand Wagering. It's only here in Main to attract more interest.


Same rules as last year. You have to join a Yahoo Public Competitive League and use your first two draft picks to pick a kicker and defense. Whoever wins their league wins the sand. If you are interested in playing this year, just post in this thread. There will be a $1000 sand entry fee and all sand collected will go to the winner.

Anyone who pays is a contestant. There will be no limit to the number of sharks who can play, but every shark can only have one entry. The league id must be posted prior to the draft, and once the draft starts, they are locked into that team. No starting over (unless it gets totally messed up where the first two picks don't go kicker/defense). It must be a public league that everyone can view. If we can't see your league, then you signed up for a private league and that entry will not count.

Whoever goes the furthest wins the pot. If more than one shark wins, the pot will be split between them.

I'll start us off by saying I'm playing. My $1000 sand is in. I'll continue to update the first post of this thread as sharks join and drafts begin.

Everyone should be playing in "Casual" leagues.

You can join the competition right up until the week before the season starts, as long as you post your team name, draft date, and league ID before your draft starts.

For your league to score for the entire NFL season schedule, your draft must be complete before the scheduled start of the first game of the season


Post your league id and team name in this thread so I can add links to the league in this post.

Seems like this would be pretty easy as long as it's an auction draft.

What? That's not prohibited in the rules...

You've been here such a short time, yet you're already the worst.

Also, it's prohibited by the rules. The type of league is clearly stated.

You don't pick in auctions. You nominate and bid.

And if you win the player, that's a draft pick.

No. It's a winning bid. After an auction draft you don't say I drafted Elliott for 40 bucks in the first round.

Now, do you mind if we focus this thread on the contest, rather than you?

I'm talking about the contest, Brainiac.

And it doesn't say anything about rounds. It says your first two picks. So you just can't draft anyone else until you have drafted a kicker and a defense, in an auction league.

Join the contest. Send your sand entry. Use an auction league. See how that works out for you.

ok, new page. No questions about auction drafts, the definition of a draft pick, etc.
