Commissioner Corner Message Board
Last year we did a league with just 50 teams. Well this year I have decided to do a giant league with 99 people. I have created both leagues and then I will post the overall standings from the leagues combined on the leagues yahoo group.
Every 5 weeks the bottom 30 teams will have a "flat tire", which means you have been eliminated once but you are still in the league. In order for a team to be knocked-out they must be eliminated twice which we call a "blown engine". Once you have been eliminated twice you are out of the league.
So for example lets say after week 5 at Bristol, my team is in the bottom 30 of the standings, so I will have a flat tire(eliminated once). So I am still in the league but then in week 10 at Richmond I am still in the bottom 30 of the league and now I have a blown engine and am eliminated twice, which means I am out of the league.
Here are the elimination weeks:
Week 5: Bristol
Week 10: Richmond
Week 15: Michigan
Week 20: Brickyard
Week 26: Richmond
Then after Richmond there are no more eliminations so who ever is left is in the "chase" for the championship.
To determine the actual standings, throughout the entire regular season, we will be going by the FULL SEASON standings. Then, once our "Chase" begins in week 27 (just like the real nascar chase), we will go by just the FALL standings, which are week 27-36.
Also, after the Spring and Summer standings, the top 3 teams get an automatic berth in the Chase for the championship. So if you finish in the top 3 in the Spring standings, you could fall all the way to last place and still not be eliminated. There will be no bonus points for the winners of the spring and summer standings, but the advantage is that is you get the automatic berth, so then you can completly save your drivers until the Chase begins.
So we have 2 leagues of 50 teams and then the overall standings will be posted on the yahoo group.
YOU CHOOSE ONLY 1 OF THE FOLLOWING LEAGUES TO JOIN!!
AND AFTER YOU JOIN I WILL SEND YOU THE YAHOO GROUP INVITE.
Here are the 2 leagues but it does not really matter which one you join because they are combined to make 1 huge league.
