So anyone willing to post a list of untraded players by team? Would like to see which of the superstars are on the market. :D

Oh, and BBR is that GM's have to trade an untraded player. I believe it is just one, regardless of gender but maybe corrected.

Watching the end of that game I can agree. Something mysterious about that score...


Not the only game where there was something mysterious at the end. *cough* iktoryvay aplay *cough*

On the spreads, everyone lost last week, and unless your name is Cam or Darrel, you're also on the push-up list.

Proper accounting to follow at a later date.

This week's spreads.
I'm guessing that the only game that matters is Mean Girls vs Spirit.
lots more trades to go, but it shouldn't affect things.

Mean Girls -1.5 vs Spirit Fingers
In 5 seasons of TPL, Dee has 3 championships, a finals appearance, and a season playing with Don. Could this be the unprecedented first time she can't even make the playoffs?

Cal -4.5 vs Detention
Sun's out, guns out! Detention faces the scone straight week of Tpl big guns, but this time nobody is worried about running up the cap.

KPL -4.5 vs Health
Cam doesn't have to jog anymore

Tim -4.5 vs Glee
Those other big guns on Tim class have it together, especially Cam and BC.

Vik -4.5 vs Breakforce
No more need to Loat

So many big names got moved this week... maybe should have waited before setting the spreads?

Undefeated Crown - Who is keeping it????

I have yet another betting pool for this week....

Two people remain undefeated on the league:
1. Sarah Tulin, 7 Games played. On a per Game basis: 1.1G, 2.0A, 1.9SA, 0.9D, 1.1TA and 0.6RE
2. Matt Denton, 5 Games played.On a per Game basis: 1.6G, 3.6A, 1.4SA, 1.6D, 1.8TA, and 0.6RE

annnnd they face each other this week. Sarah and her Jailbaits vs. Denton @ Health and Matt Klass....

Two undefeated go in, only one will keep the crown. Who would that be?????
I heard Denton's Health Klasses have helped a lot with his sore foot. But would that be enough??? At the same time, Tulin lost her partner in Crime, Harris. So whom is she going to throw to???

Get your bets in! I would bet, but my "Don't piss off the Jinx Goddess" religion prevents me to. :bom:

PLAYOFFS: Who's in and out?

Clearly this is a better use of my time than paying attention in class.
As best I can tell, standings are determined in order of Points -># wins -> Plus/Minus -> Head to Head

If that is the case, here's who's in for the playoffs:

Clinched:
KPLeena & the Jailbaits
Health Klass
Detention
Calculus
Tym Class

Conditionals:
IF Viktory Wins -> IN
IF Viktory Loses -> OUT

Mean Girls Win -> IN
Mean Girls Lose -> OUT

Spirit Fingers Win -> IN
Spirit Fingers Lose -> ONLY IN if meets plus/minus criteria below, otherwise OUT

IF Glee Wins -> IN
IF Glee Loses:
Spirit Fingers Win -> Glee IN
Mean Girls AND Viktory WIN -> Either Glee or Spirit Fingers IN, depending on Plus/Minus
Mean Girls AND Breakforce WIN -> Top 2 of Glee, Spirit Fingers, Breakforce IN, depending on Plus/Minus

If Breakforce Loses -> OUT
If Breakforce Wins
Viktory Wins -> Breakforce OUT
Mean Girls and Viktory Lose -> Breakforce IN
Spirit Fingers and Viktory Lose -> See above plus/minus requirement.

Annnnd if I'm wrong in my assumption about # of wins being the second determiner, the only change is more dependence on plus/minus if Viktory loses.

Hopefully that makes some sort of sense!!

I believe that plus/minus counts before # of wins. It's why when I was at 7 points with three other teams, I was ahead in the standings on the GM sheet....

My remaining 80 dollahs on:

Mean Girls (you know Dee is going to sneak into the playoffs and then knock off the #1 seed)
Detention (Deep roster, zone will slow Cal and company. Will lose but not by 5)
Health - Again not going to lose, let alone by 5, this spread must have been made pretrading :)
Tym- Height will prevail again for Tym but they will miss CamD their defensive and all around sparkplug
Vik- No idea what to expect here but Vikki has some crazy talented ladies in her lineup, can't recall seeing a lineup with such strong females, add Marcy and Loat throwing to CamH and I think Breakforce is in a bit o' trouble.

Norm and Cam sit within shooting distance of Misiu, who seems content to sit on his massive lead.

Lots of pushups due, if there is a 0 or negative beside one's name. Or your name is Norm, just because.

Spreads for this week!
Tym Class -1.5 vs KPLeena
Both teams put up a veritable merde show last week, so this is tough to pick. Somehow you'd think that trading away one of the best throwers in TPL (Milne), and a guy who never EVER stops running at 100% (Shimmy) is probably making your team worse off. "This week's BBR: Screw over KPLeena." I think it will work.

Viktory Lap -3.5 vs Glee
Star crossed lovers reunited as Kristie is reunited with Ellis on Glee. Will this pump up our MVP candidate? Or will he get that dreamy look in his eyes?
Speaking of dreamy looks, the Shimmys are back together again. And Loat better get used to looking at someone other than Marcy. Yes BREAKING NEWS! MarceLoat has been separated.

Health Klass -0.5 vs Spirit Fingers
This game matches up well. I can't exactly lay odds against my own team, not in playoffs, well, at least not this week.

Calculus -2.5 vs Detention
The Merry Go Round continues and Cal has traded JChan and Dempster, and ended up with Milne and Marcy. I think they are going to do OK, and Marcy will count his 4th title in 6 seasons.

Breakforce -1.5 vs Mean Girls
When Dee doesn't care....
This accounts for the draft below. Murl Force -1.5 vs mean Grundys

Attention, attention. In lieu of making a trade this week, because that is BORING, G. Kramer and H. Roderique announce "Draft Part Deux, Return of the Draft".

What is happening is this.

Murl (Mean Murls) and Grundy (Tentatively called Held Back: Shouldn't have graduated from Kindergarden) have been given official drafting duties. Their pool of players: The players from Mean Girls and Breakforce. JChan is the flipper of coin/disc to decide who goes first in the snake draft. Rob has called heads.

This puts both Kramer and I up for grabs. Will Dee end up on the Mean Murls? Will Kramer be separated from his brother from another mother, Kenny? Will Kramer and Dee end up on the same team? Who will be drafted first! Who will do the best smack talking? Who knows!! Drafting is CRAZY guys.

We will be live-ish posting (perhaps tweeting) parts of the draft. Stay tuned for possibly the most exciting development in the history of the TPL, according to this totally unbiased person writing this post.

Highlights of the draft so far:

Calvin: I feel like we need to get some betting on this...Who gets drafted first? Last? 23rd? Guy? Girl? Which team ends up with the highest regularly season salary? How many hammers did Dee drop this past weekend?

Wangers: Can there be a redraft each week, adding eliminated playoff teams each week?

Denton: Awesome. Just awesome. Makes me want to lose this week just to get into next week's drafting

Dee: OH MY GOODNESS THIS WOULD BE AMAZING. [Dee also checks stats and sees that she has zero receiver errors in 10 games and scratches head re Calvin's dropped hammers comment.]. Silly Calvin.

Grundy: So wait, when do I start drafting?

Kramer: As soon as JChan flips a coin and tells the world who gets first pick.

JChan: Grundy as a late birthday gift I will give you honours to picking heads or tails.

Grundy: Wait "heads or tails"? Which side of the disc is heads?

Carolina: Lol. Id say the one with the little drawing is heads...

JChan: It will actually be a coin.

Grundy: THIS IS ULTIMATE!!! Heads

JUB:WHo flips a coin in Ultimate?

JChan: OMG you guys fine. UP or Down

Wang: Doesn't the AUDL flip a coin?

Denton: Spreads:
Up -0.5 vs Down.
Grundy has a long history of favoring the up call. Nothing makes Rob feel down.
Yea, I got nothing, but taking bets in tpl dollars regardless.

Grundy: UP

JChan: UP it was. https://youtu.be/lYN3gzirseE Man I must be bored.

Calvin: Wow J. That's commitment people.

Carolina: Wait how does a -0.5 spread works on a binary outcome!? Lol

Denton: This is TPL. If the trades each week look like someone was smoking crack, why shouldn't the spreads?

BC: Haha. Definitely lots of crack smoking trades!

JUB: J, that is my favourite video of the week.

Calvin: Touche.

Dee: Grundy we wait with baited breath for you to choose one of Kirk or Cam.

Rob Grundy starts with the first round pick of Matt "Cardigan" Kirk.

Murl follows with a 2/3 Cam Dunning/Kramer combo.

Rob breaks Kramer's heart with a 4/5 Kenny Jacques duo...

I'm hurt so I go at #9. Murl tells me that "I better be limping".

Just another day in the life of a TPL GM. Full list to come out later tonight!!

The better late than never Playoff Primer.

The Favourites: Calculus & Viktory Lap

Both teams followed the TPL road map to success… Win early in the season, struggle in the middle and then build back up for the playoffs (plus take advantage of TPL loop holes like not subbing for your stars now and then, getting big upgrades via the Loatery and slowing down your offense if you get out to a big lead… but I digress). They are two of the more stacked teams I’ve seen in TPL with arguably 6 1st round draft picks and another 6-7 2nd/3rd round picks between them.

I give a slight edge to Calculus overall due to depth (Milne as a 4th guy?!?) but having Cam Harris going into playoff mode evens it out pretty quick. The last minute break up of Marcy-Loat is also a shock to the chemistry and a big win for TPL variety to avoid them chasing another championship ring together.

On the stats their rosters are actually the two most balanced, with their only weakness on TAs but that comes with the offensive power:
Calculus 25.3G (1st) 25.2A (2nd) 12.4D (2nd) 21.9TA (7th)
Viktory 24.8G (2nd) 24.6A (3rd) 11.9D (3rd) 22.2TA (8th)

The Main Challengers: Health & Tym Class
Health is deservedly in this spot with a very strong finish to the season. They have the best roster balance and strongest ladies in the league. They’ll need to continue their solid flow to slow down the Favourites high powered offenses and grind it out. Their big obstacle will be converting their powerful handle into goals. Tym Class gets a jump due to scheduling and chemistry (how many of these people play together in the summer? 6?). They have a potent O and maybe the 2nd best set of ladies but can they start playing some D? They are by far the worst in the league at getting turnovers (significantly worst in Ds and Drops) and I think the loss of Cam D hurt them a lot more than they think. Last week they got handled easily by Glee, so can they bounce back and go on a run?

Health 21.9G (7th) 27.1A (1st) 11.7D (3rd) 21.5TA (6th)
Tym Class 24.7G (3rd) 23.1A (5th) 8.7D (8th) 21.4TA (5th)

The Dark Horses: Detention & Glee Club
Both of these are very solid teams that had impressive runs at separate points during the season… but they both open with the favourites and they’ll have to prove they can either keep up on O or play top notch D to keep it tight. Both are near the top in minimizing turns. Glee has the D on stats with a massive 4D/game more than any other playoff team. They also have killer flow when in rhythm that shocked a few teams with easy wins like last week. Detention looks more exposed with a below average D and lacking handle (2A/game worse than any other team). They had a tough time with Calculus last week despite a strong start and unfortunately draw a rematch. They have a secret weapon of Zone D but they need a better match up for it.

Glee 23.3G (T-4th) 20.6A (T-6th) 16.3D (1st) 20.1 TA (3rd)
Detention 22.9G (6th) 18.5A (8th) 11.3D (6th) 18.1 TA (2nd)

The Long Shots: KPL & Spirit Fingers

A big drop down for the current #1 seed but it’s a gut call and though they might get in a game or 2, a game against Calculus or Viktory is near certain doom for them and their lack of scoring. Spirit is built to grind it out with tough D and a significant advantage in minimizing turns - best in both TA and Drops gives them an additional 5-6 possessions/game on every team but Detention (only 3 on them). They match up ok with Health to pull out the first round, have a harder time seeing them win 3 straight.

KPL 21.1G (8th) 24.5A (4th) 10.7D (7th) 20.4TA (5th)
Spirit 23.3G (T-4th) 20.6A (T-6th) 12D (3rd) 16.2TA (1st)

In other news:
While on a stats post vacation both Padraic Ryan (still an awesome 34G on 1 drop) and Kim Baxter unfortunately fell off the wagon with drops. The current full-season dropless goes down to single digits – 7 players… 3 games to go. Keep your eye on, or feel free to cheer/heckle: Darrel, Dee, Emma, Joel, Rajiv, Christensen, Taunya & Marko!!

Re: 2015 Winter TPL DISCRAFT

Postby mattmachina » Wed Apr 15, 2015 4:04 pm

Early in the season, one of the Big Brother Rules was that each GM had to sign up to post to the BBS.

This is my (very delayed) BBR post.

End of season thoughts from a no-longer-novice TPL GM, on a few things that could make the TPL experience more fun/exciting/interesting/disastrous?? Who knows.

First thought:

In addition to the fall and winter TPL seasons on Wednesday night, TUC could consider running a full indoor fall/winter TPL, similar to how Sundays (or some other night) have fall/winter league. This could be run on Sunday, or Thursday, or some other day not currently hosting a "premier" indoor league. (ie: don't put it on Monday, as this would conflict with Lamport, where a lot of TPL players also play.) This would make the 2nd TPL league a full indoor season from early November till April, roughly, and may allow more "parity" to be realized (eg: KPL's team is currently on a slight downward trajectory, and could fall further, bringing them back to the pack.)

Another interesting wrinkle this would allow is something that Dee and Kramer have already sort of experimented with - a re-draft. This is something I'd talked about with a couple people earlier, but hadn't yet posted/formalized. Since the season would be twice as long, with only one set of playoffs at the end of the season, to shake things up significantly mid-season, there could be a mid-season re-draft. For example, after the first 10 weeks (or so), GMs could franchise (keep) up to 5 players (5 is an example, but could be 3, 4, 5, whatever) from their roster. The rest of their roster would be put back into the pool of available players, and a re-draft would occur.

This creates a few interesting additional wrinkles.
1. GMs would have to franchise themselves (as they can't be re-drafted by another team). So, teams with 2 GMs would have to use 2 of their 5 franchise tags, reducing their other franchise players to 3 (in this example, where a total of 5 players can be franchised), while teams with a single GM could then franchise 4 players in addition to the GM.

2. What if GM only franchises 3 or 4 players, releasing 10 or 11 players back to the pool? Does that GM gain their extra picks in the first rounds of the re-draft? mid-rounds? I don't know. But it would be an interesting strategy if a GM only had 2 or 3 players he/she really wanted to keep, and wanted to be able to reload with more picks higher up in the draft.

3. Should there be salary cap implications to franchising a player? What if each franchise player has $20K added to his/her salary cap impact. (the Supernintendos would have to increase overall cap by however many players were franchised) This would also increase the strategy of franchising a 5th player, vs. only 4, as it could impact your drafting strategy.

4. Do player salaries remain intact and continue to rise after the re-draft? (I think they should.) Furthermore, does the overall league salary cap stay intact (and only increase by possible franchise tag values) so that when GMs are re-drafting, they have to consider the cap impact of taking stronger players, as it will cut into their draft capabilities in later re-draft rounds.. Essentially, picking up an extra big gun or two who were let go in the re-draft/franchise, would eat up a lot of a GM's "free" cap space, and thus, force them to draft players with lower cap impacts in more rounds later to accommodate.

One potential problem with the idea of a 2nd night/season of TPL - interest from the ladies. As I understand it, the 90 male slots filled up in under 20 minutes for TPL, but the 50 available lady spots did not fill up for at least a few days. So, would there be enough interest from the same (or more/other) ladies to have a second night (full fall/winter) of TPL? If not, would TUC consider running a Men's parity league, in addition to co-ed TPL, on a different night, for the full season? (eg: keep men's league on Tuesdays at Varsity, but add a Men's parity league on Sunday, or Thursday, with 6 or 8 ish teams, depending on the level of interest, from Nov-April?)

Second thought:

As it currently stands, all of each team's capital is tied up in players. That is, if a team is worth 1.2 million TPL dollars, it's because that's the sum of all of the players salaries on that team. When trading, GMs have to get/keep their team's salary below the new salary cap each week. Even if this means that they have to trade for the sake of $300. Let's say Team A is over cap by $50,000 after a win, and makes a trade with Team B, that brings them down to only being $1200 over cap. They'd still have to make another trade in order to get under cap.

What if each GM/team had a "slush fund" that could be used as his/her discretion, when making trades. (let's say the slush fund starts at $0 for each team, can rise to as high as $20K, and fall to as low as -$20K) In the above example, rather than having to make a 2nd trade to get under cap, the GM for Team A could shift that $1200 (plus $1) to his/her slush fund (bringing it from $0 to $1201, assuming it was at $0), and thus, be under cap. This would allow GMs/teams to make trades that both sides really like, but that doesn't quite get them under cap, without having to make further trades to get under cap.

Furthermore, what if GMs were also allowed to trade some of their slush fund. For example, Team A is over cap by $50K, and has a slush fund sitting at $0. Team B is under cap by $55K with a slush fund of $0. If Team A has player A, who's salary is $350,000 and Team B has player B who's salary is $280K, and both GMs would be happy with the trade, but the math doesn't quite work (as parity stands now) then Team B could put the extra salary into their slush fund, to make the trade work mathematically.
eg:

before trade:
Team A Team B
cap + 50K - $55K
player $350K $270K
slush $0K $0K
slush remaining $20K $20K

after trade:
Team A Team B
cap -20K + 15K
player $270K $350K
slush $0K $15K
slush remaining: $20K $5K

Whether the slush fund is set up as a positive or negative is arbitraty. It basically allows GMs to make trades that would have otherwise put them over cap. It acts as a cap buffer, as it would only have to be used at the trade deadline to make sure teams are under cap (as, in the above example, Team B could, instead of using their slush fund, turn around and trde that $350K player for a $330K player and get under cap that way). But, it would be more permanent than a fluctuating over/under buffer. If, at the end of trading one week, a team is $15K over cap, that would permanently sit in their slush fund*. So, even if they lose the following week, and are $70K under, the slush fund would still have $15K sitting in it, which would limit how much teams could, effectively stay over cap on any future weeks.

* An additional fun wrinkle this would allow is trading of funds from slush funds themselves. Let's say a similar scenario to the one above exists, but Team B is 90K under cap, and has an existing slush fund balance of $5K. Instead of trading the two players for each other straight up, resulting in a $70K swing, Team B could also ask for Team A to take $3K from their slush fund as well.

before trade:
Team A Team B
cap + 50K - $90K
player $350K $270K
slush $0K $5K
slush remaining $20K $20K

after trade:
Team A Team B
cap -20K - 20K
player $270K $350K
slush $3K $2K
slush remaining: $17K $18K

In theory, a team's slush fund could go to -20K as well (the hypothetical limit I've used above), if a team with no existing slush fund balance traded away some of their slush fund to other GMs as part of a trade. This would, in essence, give them a $40K buffer at their disposal when making trades.

The primary question: what upper (and lower) limits should be allowed on the slush fund? I'd say no more than about $15 or $20K, and that slush funds should be symmetrical (have equal upper and lower limits of +/- 20K). The real purpose of the slush fund is to allow GMs to make trades that they're happy with, with other GMs, and if the math doesn't quite work, well, the slush fund would help. But, it could also add an extra layer of fun (and complexity) that some GMs may enjoy playing with more, while others may almost entirely ignore it.

Anyway, those are a few thoughts on how TUC could consider expanding its Parity offerings. I wouldn't suggest replacing the existing distinct fall and winter TPL seasons with one continuous fall/winter TPL, but rather, adding a continuous TPL season on another night. Ideally, this would also be co-ed, but if there's not enough interest from ladies, I would bet that it would still be wildly popular and fill up with guys in no time. Wether or not a slush fund gets incorporated in either league would be entirely up to the convenors, and would facilitate trading, but could add a layer of complexity that they want to avoid.

And, with that, I'm done. Other thoughts on these ideas (or others) welcome.
