i might have to try this..i never really have enough time to dedicate to fantasy sports with work and school full time..but, i think i'll try this..
plus, basketball isn't really my sport..would have to go with the great game of baseball...but, we'll give it a shot...

10-19-2001, 01:36 PM
Yeah cool, come join. There's already 5 members in the group and I'm probably gonna post this on the LMF board too so it'll fill up fast once I do that.

may the best man (ape) win

10-29-2001, 11:24 AM
Ok, it's here.

Just wanna remind everybody that the season starts tomorrow meaning VGM does too. There for your picks for Tomorrows team need to be submited by 11:59 PM TONIGHT! Remember your picking your roster for a given day the day Before. i.e. Day 4 roster is picked by 11:59 PM of day 3.

Got about 30 or so open spots left.

So Let's get it ON i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

10-29-2001, 08:10 PM
Can we see what other players picks are on there yet?

10-29-2001, 11:33 PM
Not til after the rosters lock. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

VGM Bulletin of the day:

Lyle Morrison at Tue, Oct 30, 6:42 AM
i don't know who any of you are, and i really don't care. if you want to win, you're in the wrong group. the day i registered is the day that all competition ended for the rest of the group.
you should probably register in a separate group if you're interested at all in winning

We know who you are Murphy... We'll just have to see how cogent your poop-talking turns out to be...

10-30-2001, 11:17 PM
haha, yeah, that's me..just spicing things up a bit

10-31-2001, 11:26 AM
do we have to change players on the VGM every day?
if so, i might be out on it.

10-31-2001, 03:28 PM
<< do we have to change players on the VGM every day? >>

Yep, you don't HAVE to but not gonna win that way.

10-31-2001, 05:21 PM
well, since i'm winning, i'll see what i can do

10-31-2001, 07:19 PM
It's not letting me log back onto my team. Any ideas?

10-31-2001, 08:15 PM
Hmmm i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif . I'm not having any trouble.

11-01-2001, 10:12 AM
i'm out on it..there's no way i can make the changes to my roster each night after the games before 12:00 pacific time.
doesn't make any sense...why the hell not have until the day of the game to change your roster..
oh well
it was fun while it lasted

11-01-2001, 11:22 AM
Dude, you don't have to wait until that days games are over before you can pick the next days team. Once the roster lock period passes (11:59 PM Pacific), their LOCKED. You can start picking your next roster anytime after that. i.e. You have from 1:00AM central time this morning until 1:00AM central time tomorrow morning tho pick your team for Friday nov. 2nd. You basically have 24 hours to pick your rosters everyday. Just as long as it's finalized to your liking by 11:59 PM Pacific.

Understand now? i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

i saw it man, but i also can't log on on the weekends... so i'm going down.

11-02-2001, 05:34 PM
man, i realize that now, but it had already screwed up two of my days...

11-02-2001, 08:23 PM
That's ok, pretty much everybody misses a few days during the season. I know I will.

11-04-2001, 11:28 AM
My second day got screwed up as well... I'll make it up though...

11-06-2001, 08:03 PM
Damn... Im in last place! I didnt read that you changed your picks daily. CRAP!!!!! I thought it was weekly. DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN CRAP!!!

11-09-2001, 04:37 PM
I've had trouble with the morning rollover from one day to the next. It appears I'm selecting active players for the following evening, but then they show up on their off night.

If you can help it, choose your guys at night for the following day.

This every day lineup thing can get tiresome. Im just not used to it I guess. I have to remember to change my lineup every single day. So onmy days when Im scratching myself at home, I have to use my slow ass dial up to get in just to change it. I'll try and keep up, but its not a true reflection of my superior fantasy basketball knowlege and skills... MAD SKILLS I TELL YOU.

The minions of the Evilmav are reaping VirtualGM points at an alarming rate... Nick van Exel has been a particularly effective contributer to the Army...

Also Rob, check out the point totals on the College Pickum game... If you eliminate the lowest week from everybody's score (mine being zero) you will see that the &quot;Angry Drunk Evilmav&quot; is holding a tiny lead... These last couple of weeks are going to be close... i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

11-28-2001, 01:39 PM
The minions of Evilmav forgot to get on the internet to change their roster during Thanksgiving... Thus, they lost their #1 ranking. i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif

12-03-2001, 01:49 PM
Because of the lack of internet, I was unable to do my team this weekend i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif . DAMNIT!

12-04-2001, 05:54 PM
I joined this. Are most of the people updating their players daily, weekly, monthly?? I'm in last place. i/expressions/face-icon-small-frown.gif

12-04-2001, 10:44 PM
I think most do it daily. It is a daily game.

Btw, your team name SUCKS!! i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif

12-06-2001, 05:31 PM
Meh, I quit the group.. I joined too late.

01-26-2002, 10:53 PM
I'm in. In 8th with the bruisers and coming at ya'all.

Go Mavs!!
