Default FBG 20k contest offer

Hey everyone.
If you are in the FBG 20k contest post your roster here and I will add it to this site:

http://www.ffforecaster.com/leagues/20k/index.htm

This will let you get your stat results before FBG post their update.

This is open to anyone on the message board.

Skip,

You may want to move this to the general forum so anyone on the board can have this little bonus that participated in the FBG contest... Twilight at FBG is hosting a similar service for those in the Spring and MB Survivor leagues as well, but I think it'll be neat to see how our users fair against each other.

anyhow, here's my 20k contest mishap

Steve McNair
Josh McCown
Vinny Testaverde

Quentin Griffin
Thomas Jones
Lee Suggs
William Green
Michael Pittman

Randy Moss
Brandon Lloyd
Eric Parker
Jerry Rice
Drew Bennett
Reggie Williams
Charlie Rogers

Antonio Gates
Erron Kinney

Paul Edinger
Rian Lindell

Denver D
Indy D

They had a contest for subscribers.

You submit a roster under a $250 cap from a list of avail players (and
salaries).

They take your best lineup each week based on results. Each week some are
eliminated and in the end the winner gets like 15,000. There are a bunch of
other prizes too (projection TVs etc).

I won't win, but it will be fun to see how far I last.

(Thanks Skippy).

Here's my (pathetic) team:

Chad Pennington
Rex Grossman
David Carr

Ahman Green
Lee Suggs
Chris Brown
Michael Pittman
Tyrone Wheatley

Brandon Lloyd
Kelley Washington
Reggie Williams
Plaxico Burress
Robert Ferguson
Tyrone Calico
David Terrell

LJ Smith
Itula Mili

Billy Cundiff
Rian Lindell

Houston
Denver

I obviously wasn't paying too close attention since Green and Brown sit the same week and three of my receivers sit the same week. I'm sure I won't make it to week 9 to worry about. I'm not feeling to happy about going with the bargain receivers.

These lineups are funny... it looks like every one of us recognized some great value in Suggs and C. Rogers! Oh well, here's to hoping Lee comes back strong in week 3! :toast:

Skippy- were you able to program this to only take the highest scores? Meaning it knows to ignore the two lowest QB's scores?

I lost by .6. My receivers screwed me too. At least there is still a slim chance of winning a projection TV.

How did you guys get eliminated, when you scored higher than I did last week? Is this a cumulative scoring thing? If so, I'll probably be toast next week...

Jim,

The cutoff was at 8000 teams this week. The points cutoff was 108.90 I believe, thus, I'm sorry to tell you that you were eliminated this week as well as Skip and Brian .

Well bust my britches! You're correct, Mike... I advanced down to the bottom of the page to see who was eliminated, and missed the "eliminated during week 3" list. DUH!

So much for my 20K plans...
