Commissioner Corner Message Board
Hometown Dynasty League (HDL) is a Fantasy Sports Network designed to give managers a chance to take a special interest in their teams based on the city they represent. All HDL managers will participate in fantasy leagues for the major four U.S. sports: Football, Basketball, Hockey, and Baseball. There is a unique points system in place to generate overall standings across all four leagues. All leagues will be run through Yahoo.
Each manager will represent the same city in all four leagues. The major catch to HDL is that you must maintain a required number of players from your hometown city for each sport. For example, the “Chicago” team must have six Chicago Bears’ players on their roster at all times in the Football league. This “Chicago” team would also have to do the same with the Bulls, Blackhawks, and Cubs/White Sox in their respective leagues. The hometown player requirement number for each sport is different based on the roster size.
Starting in August 2013 for the 2013-’14 NFL Season, HDL will officially begin with four 12-team Football leagues and a 16-team Champions League. The Champions League will have money ($$$) involved, while the regular HDL leagues will be free. For the first year, the Champions League will be hand-picked, but in the future there is opportunity to qualify based on performance in the regular HDL leagues. All leagues will run for one calendar year to cover all four major sports. The following Football season will mark the start of Year Two when any promotions or demotions between leagues will take place.
