    I still don't understand the rules. You can sub out players after Friday night lockouts, you can trade players out after Friday night lockouts yet you can't change, sub or trade your captain or vice captain.
    If Fanhub don't know the rules I'm not sure if there's any hope for us.

    The reason re: Captains is it is supposed to limit people using the Captain Loophole. (i.e. You VC going large Friday so you sub your Captain who plays Monday out for someone not playing. This means you get x2 for your VC's high score. Then if you have only 17 scoring players. You will still end up with your Captains score as well.)

    That could also work. I understand that since none of you have met me in real life there would be hesitation in myself holding the entry cash. Maybe someone like Honeysett or SI could do it instead? Or if anyone knows of a website where everyone can deposit their entry fee ($5 or $10 or whatever) and it is  released come seasons end to the winner. Maybe it could be done so it requires two people / passwords before the cash is withdrawn.

    Either way I would love to hear other suggestions during the off season so I can set it up in the pre season next year around the time SI and myself will kick start the Fantasy Leagues etc (Would no longer be called the Sportal Leagues Crying or Very sad )

    why don't you contact Sportsbet to see if they can setup an account for this ?
    At the end of the year, they can give the money to the winners account.

    Glad you found us mate Very Happy .

    23 days Sportal was down for, 6 days the time before that, only a matter of time before it never comes back so best we get this place up and running over the next few months instead of waiting for the inevitable when we will have no hope of getting in touch with a lot of our posters.  10 years worth of history over there for you I know, but here's to the next 10 here Beer

    And for this reason I think we should keep it ticking over all beit very slowly so it doesn't get closed down before next year kicks off

    Yeah, that was the original plan.  Random and I discussed it about 3 months ago and as you are alluding to, it is smart to allow the guys who only post during the season to make their way back Feb/March.

    Hence the reason I didn't bite when Hench continually bagged everyone for returning to Sportal.  We were only returning to keep it ticking over.  Now, low and behold, Hench is still starting new threads over there  Embarassed

    I might sign up with an alt to Sportal and create 12 dummy threads on each forum titled "Sportal closing: Please move to NRLfantasyfanatics forums".

    If I could get a Sportal mod to sticky them, that'd be great. Wink

    Sounds good except with a new account you won't be able to create threads. Sportal at its finest Finger

    Idea:

    Can we get our resident Sportal mod to go over to the league forum and delete all the threads in there?

    Not out of spite but we don't want people googling where to find a good NRL fantasy relevant forum site and being directed to Sportal.

    Thoughts?

    I think you are trying to avoid votes for the Inaugural Fanatics Soft Cock of the Year award. I shall have to lift my game and get all aggressive and shit.
