Grum - to follow on from your comment on the league page (where, in the past, the comments have sort of not lead to any discussion so might as well keep the discussion in the spofi realm)....
If you don't know anything and don't know who is starting... maybe look at the "% teams selected by" metric and crowdsource the common knowledge on who is worth picking. That won't account for somebody like, say, Joey Barton who is in the top 15 most selected midfielders but is a question mark insofar as getting in the lineup due to the fact that, despite the offseason, he continues to be Joey Barton.

I guess I totally forgot about this. Seems like my 2nd last transfer was in Nov, and my last transfer was in Feb. It fell off my radar. And I ended with a 5th place finish. I'll take it!

Oh, saw the title of the post and went to reactivate the old league. Now, reading the post, I see you've started a new league. In any case, the old league has been renewed and the three of us (plus holden and David N) are in it.
That being said, I just changed the admin for that league (the legacy league) from me to you, trox, so if you log back in you should see the Spofi EPL 10-11 league under your purview which you can do whatever you like with.
Do note the benefit of keeping it and deleting the first one in that anybody who was in it last year will be automatically (?) re-entered into as they reopen their user accounts. In any case, you are the admin of both leagues now. Your call.

Somehow, I see this fresh thread and swoop in to hang my head in shame.
It was me, then the Spofi redesign of yore F*ed up the easy way I had assembled to make the updates and I have never got it back together.
My apologies, but I'll be honest and confess I don't see myself sorting it out to bring back what I once provided.
I'll be "in control" of the spofi pool on the EPL website as commish and I will renew that when it comes up in August. If that matters.

My apologies. I have been keeping track, making tables, uploaded a few but not followed up with proper threads.
We lost skronk though. Two weeks ago the pool had 26 entries. Fair to say my lack of updates can take some of the blame. Will get it sorted this week for sure.

I have the numbers to make a second week update, but might not have the time to make that update until the weekend, that is until week 3 starts.

I think you did in the original 09-10 thread. Knew I'd read that somewhere and forgot to check.

If anybody wants to claim the four teams I couldn't connect with a Spofite then makes yourselves known. Also, some of the regulars (WC2002? rcade?) are AWOL.

Great idea Jeffwa. Will look to do that.

Code for new entrants: 275238-68196
Sorry for the precipitous drop in lockerroom updates that I had been providing. I guess it was the site revamp last year that changed the updating job from a simple task to a frustrating task and I stopped. Best of luck this year!
Ronaldo-less teams for all!

Well, the rest of the tables now violate a 4,000 character limit applied to comments. So, they're again published offsite.

Look! The whole table is there. We're back in business.

Dunno why there are big spaces after the titles. But there are three table chunks.

Overall Table - Top 10

Well, there's a bug. In preview, the URLs were all weird (sportsfilter.com added before all of them), and they were in black and underlined. And the list at the bottom wasn't smeared on a single line. Other than preview not giving an accurate preview, I guess it works.
posted by gspm at 12:16 PM on August 26
Ah ha! The 4000 character limit can still permit a smaller table, such as the exclusive TOP 10. I'm developing a solution to put the full table on my own website (excel makes the html, I just need a place to plop it).
TOP 10 - Week 1 Table
PS - I am not enjoying the new buggy spofi. No double previews!?
posted by gspm at 07:41 PM on August 20
Well, so far I've tried a few things (google docs, excel export to mht or htm) and haven't hit upon a great solution.
But I should figure out what can be done in 4000 characters.
The not quite satisfactory google docs version has the retro looking bright blue underlined hyperlinks.
posted by gspm at 04:50 PM on August 20
Hmmm, can't do a table since there is now a 4000 character limit on the comments. I'll have to come up with something else.

Well, barbarajones and the newly appeared ibanez666 were booted for not saying hello.
The season is about to kick off and I know I've selected a horrible team - I only have two players that Squealy has.

The thing about competing with college football is that they don't put the best games on New Year's Day anymore, do they? It's a tradition, but the BCS has mucked that up a bit.
posted by gspm at 11:55 AM on July 17
Hmm. Seems like last year's (and the year before's) league is still in there is last year's participants chose to RENEW their participation. I guess I am the admin from two years ago because I have the power to suspend those that are already in the league The only person in the new league that hasn't already renewed their spot in the old league is BoKnows. The code for brand new entrants (who cannot renew a spot) to join Spofi EPL Fantasy (classic edition) is 88297-23343. You know, to make things unnecessarily complicated.

Yeah, maybe the sumup and the end of next year might be even one better (the external summary page, that is) given that Excel 2007 has some "conditional cell color" functionality that integrates the sort of thing I'd been doing with more labour intensive methods. I'd probably upgrade in the next year. And with the spreadsheet to lockerroom updating somewhat streamlined (though I bet it could be even more automatic) there is always room to squeeze out a bit more from the data. Gotta make it better for next year. In other news... combining the web's version of chocolate and peanut butter together (lists plus video) the 101 greatest goals of the last year.

Sleep is what it is. Inconsistent six months on. But what can you do. It'll get better. My updates were a little shambolic, in terms of timeliness, the last few months. I wonder why.

Oops. That is thanks to an uncorrected autocomplete in the thread title field. Saves me from getting the pool URL and works so long as as type in the correct week number.

Sorry, I meant to add a bit but got waylaid by the formatting of the top table. You'll notice it is not centered. Eventually I figured out why (suddenly the html is being treated differently, it seemed). But what I was going to point out that owlhouse has topped the table two weeks in a row which hasn't been done since BillSaysThisScores!! topped weeks 10 and 11. So that is worth something at this stage.

Personal best weeks yet posted by vagabonds, The Foreign Exchange, The Bazooka Joes, Crap City United, Phatcat FC, Slide Rulers, Buckeye FC, Ardley Athletic, Hamburglar SV, Unsuitably Named, and Yukon United. Highest gameweek in the pool yet is a 146. (and dang, that team is only worth 102.7 so it is within reach for most of us, I'd think). In our pool, six of the top ten highest scores were posted this week. The Bazooka Joes (108 - 1), Ardley Athletic (104 - 2), The Foreign Exchange (102 - 3), Yukon United (100 - 5), Unsuitably Named (99 - 6), Phatcat FC (96 - 8). And I do declare - over the past six week The Foreign Exchange moved from 8th to 3rd and Yukon United went from 12th to 6th. That is some late season upward mobility.

Oops. Same problem as last week. I have two copies of the spreadsheet (portable and in the home office). The home office is now a nursery, so the portable one is the master. Unless the master is still the one in the home office. Gotta get it straight. Overall Table
