Mr4b,

I know things change but seriously can't we just have the core elements in place which made the previous leagues so good:

Single Buy-In value ($10+$1 always seemed perfect to me.) - the $1 just doesn't work for me.

Variety of games balance 50/50 with NL Hold-em. (And I'm a NL Player).

Overview of the entire season - 30/40 weeks, would appreciate season end freeroll value adds for
Iron-Man (25/30 Qualification), Monthly winners, Top 20/30/40 players
+ anything else you want to throw in.

Appreciate monthly prizes, etc.

Previously we had pages for leaderboard, detaila on league for season + hall of fame - can we have this back. Dedicated pages are better than multiple threads. Obviously kept the weekly threads for the specific information, if you want players to post.

Also:

How about some bounties added - it would be amazing if you could include these - this made the last leagues fun. The 'prizes' don't have to be massive either - just added interest. How about you guys joining in as bounties - chat to the players, create some connection. This is what made Joe, Barney and Ross great.

Perhaps Liv/Jake/Others could be convinced to be a bounty and answers questions from players in real time rather than be given a prescribe list to answer.

Could also add in some 'special' tournaments for regular league members - can't decide if this should 'count' towards league points - probably not but perhaps counts towards any iron man qualification (i.e. as a 'bonus' rather than the total).

If you can deliver all of the above for both the FTP & Stars leagues - it would be awesome and I would be very very happy. Can't say the same for my wife.......

It generally wasn't broke - so please don't fix it.

Thanks for listening.

p.s. If you need a Business Analyst / Project Manager I'm available (not cheap though). Wink



totally agree Samjess but sadly looks like we are becoming a banner before members forum!!!!
im off tonight and not even sure ican bring myself to part with even a measly $1 in support of the n'new' league.


Your comment on members doesn't seem to make sense in view of this thread asking for opinions ?


long and short indy i dont really give a toss about the league! as its not being run well atall, wheres the leader board?
my point is that the new owners seem more intent on filling the place with new banners and QnA sessions with a non entity like Liv 'unfaithful' Borree, so why should i care about how much the league entry is.

I think as in previous leagues $10 buy in is about right. A variation of games would also be nice.

Should be $20 min. That's like 60 a month, peanuts.

Not sure that's true Jon - pretty much all regulars on there.

Obviously something's wrong though - right sort of stake.

Personally think it's the monthly thing - bomb out in the first two and maybe people can't be arsed with the last two. Not sure.

Ended up with 44 runners

I yawn and turn over in bed.
Can't sleep.
Again.

Downstairs the TV is on
And I can hear you calling names
Of players in your never-ending game.
You cheer and wake up my brother
But you don't realize it.
The TV is up too high.

So I stand to take care of the child
But he falls silent
So I return to bed
And pull the blanket up over my head
And curl into a tight ball
For protection from my dreams.

Your heavy footsteps outside of my door
Drag just enough to tell me you're sober
But not enough to tell me whether you
Plan to take my innocence again,
What's left of it, anyway.

Slight fluctuations in your breath that I
Pretend I can detect.
My mind flashes to the clock on the nightstand.
Red blinking numbers that tell the time
Reliably.
Readily.

I can feel the cold knife of air pass under the sheets
And back up to clip the back of my neck and intensify
My shaking, which was caused by you're presence in this room.

A thousand frozen needles cutting my flesh
As you pull back the red blanket and
Lie down without a word behind me.

For a moment you wait, calm fluttering in my chest turns to acid
Running through my lungs. Your hands are gentle at first, as they
Peel me out of my enclosed shape. You smile and leave saliva on my neck
As if I was your wife, and not your son. Am I your son? I might as well not be.

Lying in your arms I used to be safe, when I was small and would climb in beside you
After a nightmare, when the memory was fresh in my mind of being shot through the chest
And you would always hold me and tell me everything would be okay. Did you believe yourself?

Hands all over me, like raindrops or a shower running over my skin. You might as well be made of fire.
I can't help but feel like this s what I want. Can't help but feel like sex with you isn't that bad. Is it
Because I'm used to it? Used to you? I used to go somewhere else in my mind but now I
Stay here mentally with you as you find what you were looking for between my legs
And move your hands back and forth over it, preparing me for what you'll do.

I can't do anything but stare at the clock and be glad it'll all be over soon.
You line yourself up with me and it doesn't hurt anymore, I just feel
A slight pressure as you press your hands to my hips to hold me
Steady. Your body rocks sideways, I'm amazed you can do
This in such an odd position. Usually we've flipped by
Now. Now? Now you swallow hard and I can feel
Saliva running down your throat and my neck
And other fluids running from lower places
Onto the sheet; it'll stain slightly lighter
Than the blanket originally was....

You grunt and moan as you hit the brink of
Your moment in the sun, and as you step away
There's a glow coming from your body. Leftover
From when you finished your task.

You leave me to clean up,
To pass out even though I'm
Covered in both of our sweat and
Saliva and blood from where you bit me,
Semi-white liquid left for me to dispose of.

But I don't clean up.
I'm too exhausted.
I can't move, really.
As I catch my breath,
Exhaustion
Puts
Me
To
S
L
E

P

Sure they are looking at feedback on the league hence this thread. Calling Liv a non entity is a bit childish to be honest, she has an excellent record, better than most if not all if us regulars together. Maybe you are just on a downer at the moment ?
